Microblading is a relatively new, manual method of semi-permanent makeup that allows for the re-creation, correction and overall improvement of the appearance of natural brows, manual strokes, shading, ombre and combined techniques. Microblading is considered semi-permanent as compared to the traditional hair-stroke techniques done with a machine. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the dermis. The results often last from 9 to 18 months.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of his or her eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania, those who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows or any other condition that causes hair loss, benefit greatly from microblading.
