Microblading deposits pigment into the superficial layers of the skin in order to resemble eyebrow hair or strokes. This technique incorporates the use of a hand tool with disposable needles or pins (about the size of acupunture needles). The technician uses the hand tool to etch a pattern of hair "strokes" dipped in pigment which is implanted into the skin. All microblading needles used by the technician are individually packaged, sterile, include batch/lot and expiration dates from the manufacturing companies and are one time use. We are regulated by the health department of the county that the studio is located, the studio is a licensed bodyart facility and each artist is a licensed body art technician. The artists also have First Aid, CPR & Bloodborn Pathogen certifications which are renewed yearly. We attend continuing advanced education at least twice a year.
is microblading permanent? (CLICK FOR THE ANSWER)
Technically any time a pigment is implanted into the skin in ANY form it is considered a permanent tattoo regardless of the method of implantation (hand tool or machine). However the reason why many people consider microblading "semi-permanent" is because of the fading factor. It fades faster than a traditional tattoo because less pigment is used and normally the pigment is not embedded as deep as a regular tattoo done with a machine.
is it painful?
Most clients report minor pain and slight discomfort but it all depends on your overall pain tolerance. The good news is that we will apply a numbing cream prior to treatment and during the treatment which will make the entire process much more comfortable. However, if you are aware that you have an extremely low pain tolerance and/or do not normally numb with prescribed topicals you may want to reconsider getting the procedure done.
