Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that is performed by a qualified technician using a specialized hand-tool, which holds tiny disposable microblades. Microblading is an extremely meticulous process in which pigment strokes are manual made into the skin, to look just like real eyebrow hairs. The procedure involves pigment being implanted into the upper most part of the dermis. This shallow depth will vary on each client, simply put; some people have thicker skin than others. To master this technique, you must master a feel for the skin. Regardless of the type of pigments used, the success of the procedure is not found in a brand, but rather in a technique.
It differs from conventional brow feathering by the very fact that it is a manual procedure and not done using a machine. When using a hand held micro blade, the colour is deposited closer to the skin surface than when a machine is used, allowing for very fine and crisp hair strokes with no spilling under the skin. The end result is very natural looking eyebrows.
Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct their brows or for those just trying to keep their brow game on point by defining, covering gaps, adding a slight arch or filling-in over plucked brows. We have diverse clients ranging from your everyday Domestic Goddess to people with serious illnesses such as cancer and alopecia. Imagine waking up to perfect brows everyday without having to worry about filling in, smudging, smearing or disappearing.

First we have a detailed consultation in which we discuss exactly what each client is looking to achieve. We match the pigment to each client’s natural brow hair and test the shades against skin tone first. Before a microblade is even picked up, we customize shape, size, and hair pattern with a pencil to ensure the client is completely satisfied. Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. Don’t be worried about the process being painful, some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it’s relatively painless. Then the super precise microblading procedure begins and takes around 2 hours to complete.
The years or permanency of a “semi-permanent” cosmetic procedure are different for every individual. There are many factors that contribute to a successful procedure. First, we have to factor in, UVA and UVB exposure. The more time you spend in the sunshine, the less time the procedure will last. Secondly, which products are used on the face? Certain cosmetic products (face washes, moisturizers, sunscreen, toners, creams, foundations, make-up etc…) will affect the longevity of your pigment. Moreover, proper colour selection, viscosity of the pigment, the client’s skin thickness, needle/microblade selection, insertion depth, the client’s health and how many passes the technician inserts into the skin (building colour volume) will also play a role.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen and our eyebrows ‘sag’. The pigments used in semi-permanent make-up will fade over time. This is preferred over traditional tattooing because faces change over the years and so do brow styles, therefore it’s best that your brow fades and can be redone and restyled over the years.
$450* (Includes Initial Procedure ONLY)
Typically each new procedure requires 2 visits, the initial procedure followed by a touch-up session. The cost of any touch-up sessions (including the one right after your initial procedure) is not included in the original price. Within 3 months of initial procedure, any touch-up(s) are $100.
*Add Shading for $50
We would like our clients to be able to maintain their beautiful new eyebrows and that means affordable touch ups. Microblading is considered semi-permanent and lasts up to 18 months depending on each individual’s skin type. Because we’re introducing pigment so close to the surface of the skin, regular touch ups are recommended every eight months to maintain the crisp hair strokes and to keep the color fresh. This, of course varies greatly from individual to individual so our touch up prices allows you to have it done as often or as little as you like.
If you had your procedure done somewhere else and need it touched up, it is considered a correction not a touch-up, therefore a consultation is required for proper price assessment.
3 months post initial procedure- $100
8 months post initial procedure- $200
8-12 months post initial procedure- $250
12-18 months post initial procedure- $300
18 months post initial procedure- $300+

On The Day You Have Your Procedure:
This is the most important stage of your healing process. This is the time when you have the most lymph production and your care is necessary for proper pigment retention.
It is mandatory that you wipe the area with room temperature water on a gauze every half hour for the next three hours. Use moderate pressure and a gauze that is not too fluffy or the fibers may stick to the area.
In The Days After Your Procedure:
You may expect itching, light scabbing, and some pigment loss or fading at this time. If this is your first session, entire areas may appear to have lost pigment. This is normal and to be expected. That is why two procedures are recommended.
At this stage you must avoid water as much as possible. You can use a face cloth to clean your face around the area to avoid getting water on it. If you shower, apply a thick layer of Vaseline right before the shower and wipe it off with gauze immediately after the shower. Do not leave the Vaseline on as the area will not breathe and heal properly. Alternatively, you may apply a regular amount of your aftercare product provided and stick a piece of cellophane to the area. Avoid the area with makeup or any creams that were not provided for you by your technician. Avoid swimming, exercise, sweating, and sun. Do these things for 10 days, or 14 if you feel the area is not completely healed.
Apply aftercare balm as directed by technician.
