The technique of microblading is a noninvasive corrective cosmetic procedure, and also a refined art and mastered skill. It involves manually depositing pigment in the upper region of the dermis with a hand tool which consists of an attachment of a small group of needles fused together in a linear grouping. The procedure is performed freehandedly without the use of machines. Individual fine lines are created with crisp layered strokes that can provide the illusion of natural looking hair.* This cosmetic tattooing is performed with extremely fine needles, a much smaller gauge of needle than those used for traditional tattooing. When considering any cosmetic procedure, it is just as important to know what to expect, as it is to know the expectations.
Microblading is a simple procedure which is performed in a comfortable and private salon setting. During the procedure, you can expect to be reclined in a comfortable atmosphere in a chair designed for microblading. A numbing solution is applied topically, limiting any discomfort during the application. Aseptic technique is always applied, with sterile single use needles by a trained and licensed technician. The area of the skin is cleaned and disinfected prior to the procedure. The pigment is then applied with a gentle and intricate stroke within the brow. The entire procedure is typically performed in less than two hours by a highly trained and specialized microblading artist.*
