What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure, categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles to mimic hair strokes, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows.
