WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Imagine waking up every morning with perfect eyebrows…

Microblading, also known as feathering, eyebrow embroidery and 3-D eyebrows, uses a disposable, pen-like micro-blade device to etch very fine lines into skin, mimicking eyebrow hairs.

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that deposits colour closer to the surface of the skin than with the use of a machine, leaving very crisp, fine hair strokes. This method prevents ink spillage under the skin so these lines heal thinner and sharper with less blurring over time.

The enhancement looks completely natural and is an excellent long-term solution for hiding common eyebrow imperfections such as gaps between the hairs, scars, thinness in shape, etc.

We use both manual and machine application methods depending on your skin type and desired look. Our specialties include reshaping and restoring Eyebrow Microblading that have lost their youthful appearance, as well as creating beautifully designed, natural, modern brows. We work with you to both design your perfect shape and select your personalized colour. Fill in, define or reshape your eyebrows with youthful, face-framing eyebrows that are unique to you in colour, shape, and density.

We very often blend a little eyebrow microblading with powder shading for softly enhanced and very realistic-looking brows. 

WHO IS IT FOR?

At any age, thicker, fuller brows enhance a woman’s beauty, allowing her to appear more youthful while accenting the natural beauty of her eyes and balancing her facial features.

Very few people are naturally blessed with ideal, lavish brows, and many of us have over-tweezed, resulting in permanent ‘holes’ in their brows. Fibre gels, pencils, and other eyebrow makeup can create the illusion of fullness, but the daily effort of drawing on the perfect pair can be both time-consuming and difficult to accomplish.

The art of microblading, when performed by an experienced professional with a keen, aesthetic eye for beauty, can give you the ideal pair of natural-looking brows for your face. Whether someone is wanting to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps or fill-in over plucked brows, microblading is the ideal semi-permanent, eyebrow waxing near me natural-looking solution.

DOES IT HURT?

With the use of numbing cream, we make the procedure painless.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

Clients may feel some tenderness or sensitivity for a few days after the procedure. As the brows heal, they may flake and form scabs that will fall off.

Initially, brows will appear darker, fading 20-30% within 1.5 – 2 weeks. Depending on how well the skin retains the pigment, clients may opt for a touch-up within four to six weeks. Many clients come for an annual touch-up to maintain the sharpness of the hair strokes, as well as the shape and colour of their brows. I offer a special touch-up/re-do rate for my returning clients up to three years after their initial appointment.

Brow Techniques

The technique that is best for your brows will be chosen at your appointment and is based on your skin type, your desired outcome and your general health.

Microblading

A manual tool is used to implant pigment into tiny lines in the brow area to create the illusion of hair strokes. This technique implants very little pigment so it only lasts up to 1-2 years for most people. Microblading is not suitable for oily or aged skin, as the pigment can spread underneath the skin surface causing blurred or grey-looking “hair strokes”.

Powder Brow

This look can be achieved using a variety of techniques (depending on your skin type and the technique preferred by your artist) but gives the look of soft “powdered” make-up. It is ideal for anyone requesting fuller-looking brows or who would like to improve the definition or shape of their brows. It can look subtle or bold depending on preference and is suitable for almost all skin types.

Ombré Powder Brow
(Shaded Brow)

The same as a powder brow except for the head of the brow (closest to the nose) is done using diluted pigment, a lighter colour, or less saturation than the rest of the brow.

Combination Brow

The same as a powder brow except for the head of the brow (closest to the nose) is done using diluted pigment, a lighter colour, or less saturation than the rest of the brow.

Microfeathering

This is a less structured microblading technique that is suitable for those who have plenty of brow hair but want minor gaps filled in for a fuller look. Not suitable for those who have little to no hair or those whose brows are not already quite full.

Eyebrow Colour Correction

Existing eyebrow microblading or permanent makeup that has changed colour over time but retains a satisfactory shape can often be colour-corrected (depending on saturation). Usually, a powder brow technique is preferred, with a pigment colour that will neutralize and correct the existing brow colour. Must be done by an artist properly trained in colour theory and highly skilled in correction techniques.
