Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique in which a sterile handheld tool is used to place pigment into the skin in fine, short strokes resembling hair, creating the illusion of fuller brows.

Microblading Healing Process
- Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. A true reflection of the healed color can only be assessed 3-4 weeks after the initial treatment. It will go from too dark to too light, to just right!
- Immediately after the procedure the pigment is very sharp and dark. This is because the pigments are still sitting on top of your skin and have not settled completely into the dermis. The color of the pigment will soften gradually.
- Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, dry skin will appear. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly. However this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.
- Your eyebrows will be the lightest tone during the 5-12 days after your treatment because the color will have absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin. Later skin cells push it back to the upper layers. Once the healing is completed, you will enjoy a pair of beautiful, natural looking eyebrow.
