what is microblading

Microblading is for Anyone who wants a natural brow look that lasts.

Microblading is a technique using a super-fine pen (technically, a bundle of 12 to 15 needles) to deposit pigment into skin. 

The tip is so fine, in fact, that it can create hair strokes that look legit. And the needles reach only into the superficial layers of the skin, which is what makes the method semi-permanent (versus permanent, like traditional cosmetic tattoos).

Think of each stroke as a little paper-cut.

We know what you're thinking: Yes, it hurts, but Hannah can

numb the area first. 

Compared to other techniques, "microblading gives a very natural look and better simulates hair.

Also known as Brow Embroidery, Feathering, Feather Touch Etching and Micro-Strokes,

Microblading is an art which allows the design and crafting of simulated precision perfect hair strokes and subtle volumized coverage to existing brows, using fine deposits of cosmetic grade

pigments which are manually implanted into the dermal layer (upper reticular layer) of the skin.

In essence it’s a highly skilled manual process of cosmetic tattooing, which uses a specially designed handheld Microblade and uniquely engineered needles to create fine strokes which penetrate the skin. 

Cosmetic pigment is then implanted into the ultra-fine incisions, which has been colour matched to existing hairs. Hannah is able to subtly transform brows into statement facial features using a selection of needles which collectively form a variety of shapes such as slopes and

half circles (often referred to as ‘U’), which are natural looking to the eye and capture the elegance and bespoke precision of hand drawn penmanship through free flow motion.

Microblading is a manual process which relies on artistry and hand pressure of the technician to control the depth of the strokes. 

In the past this discipline has been favoured by technicians who

believed that the process offered more control than popular machine procedures, resulting in the

precise and consistent replication of hair strokes that blend seamlessly with hairs already present in the eyebrows. 

We can now offer the customer customised crisp strokes which can be

implemented to fill in gaps occurring in natural brows, create fuller or more structured brows and

reshape or add definition to existing eyebrows.


How long does microblading lasts?

You will have a Touch-up/Top Up in around a month.

This is extra to the first cost.


Then, microblading can last anywhere from 12 months to three years, depending on your

lifestyle.


A few ways our clients can extend it: Stay out of the sun, since it can fade the pigment, and avoid putting exfoliants

(like retinol and glycolic acid) near the brows, because they'll lift the top layers of skin with continued use—and

the colour with it.


Hannah will not remove your natural brows before treatment or after the treatment she will work with what you've already got and enhance it.
