Microblading is simply another form of cosmetic tattooing using a hand manual tool. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting colour closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes. The results can last anywhere from 11 to 18 months, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
