What is Microblading?
Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to traditional hairstroke technique. It is done by using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we are impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no "spilling" under the skin.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania, or any other condition that causes hair loss, benefit greatly from microblading, as well as people who simply are unhappy with their eyebrows.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but will fade significantly over a two week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch-up done as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin with retain pigment.
The results can las anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch-up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
I start off the procedure with color matching. I then use the Golden Ratio Technique to shape your brows. The Golden Ration, also known as the Golden Mean, is a numerical ratio of the sum of 2 parts that equal the larger of the 2 quantities. This ratio equal 1.618, and has been used throughout history by such design masters as Plato and Leonardo da Vinci.
