What is Microblading?

Microblading is the art of creating fuller, natural looking brows with the finest hair strokes. These channels are filled with pigment that will rest in the upper layer of skin. The color of pigment will lighten during the healing process.

This is a fairly new technique that has been taking the world by storm. Many clients find that a combination Microblading/Powder Fill brow creates the dimensional brow they've been dreaming of. 

While the minimal amount of pigment is subject to fading over time, microblading is not "semi-permanent". It is a tattoo that will need to be maintained regularly to stay looking its best. Annual Touch-Ups are $150 if scheduled within a year of the procedure. Clients normally find themselves wanting touch-ups every 1-3 years.
