What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. The procedure uses a small hand held blade to individually create each hair stroke, allowing our skilled permanent makeup artist to control the shape, color and density of the completed brows. Choosing a spa that offers an expert microblading service can be difficult, but at HM Spa & Salon, we work to ensure everything about the process is easy and as smooth as possible. Our experienced technician is extremely knowledgeable, microblading eyebrows is one of her specialities, she is proficient on how to achieve predictable results as well as the microblading healing process.
Does Microblading Hurt?
Microblading is similar to tattooing so your skin may experience some discomfort ranging from mild to moderate pain. At HM Spa and Salon, we will ask you questions to understand your pain tolerance and provide a service that never exceeds it. While we are not able to give injectable anaesthetic, our technician will use a topical cream to numb the area and provide as little discomfort as possible.
Is Microblading Permanent?
Microblading consists of two appointments – 1 consultation and initial application, and a second one at least 4 weeks later to help refine strokes and color. Although described as semi permanent Microblading is still in essence a tattoo and pigment is being deposited into the dermis. When taken care of, Microblading can last a couple of years. Due to the nature of the pigment and how individuals care for their brows over time fading will occur. Elements such as UV exposure and exfoliating agents used on the skin can expedite color fading.
Typically we encourage clients to touch up their microblading on average every couple of years to keep them looking as fresh as the day they were first done. We typically see our service of microblading after 2 years continue to be visible in our clients which is a great reason to visit us – we can work to achieve that result for you.
