Ladies, we’d like to introduce you to MICROBLADING – a treatment to fulfill your brow dreams. A method that has made celebrities & beauty gurus already obsessed with. It’s time our eyebrows become twins!

What is Microblading?
Unlike the regular tattoo, there is a microblading tool used to draw individual strokes; one by one. The microblading tool is like a pen with needles, unlike a tattoo machine. The artist will draw your eyebrows as per your desired shape, and start filling it with short strokes. The pigment is implanted under the skin, which gives a natural look to the brow. From arched & feathered to straight and bold, get the brows of your dream with microblading.

Prep
Stop alcohol, aspirin or retinol a week before your treatment. Retinol makes the skin thinner, making you bleed more than normal. Also, it is advisable to avoid blood thinner before the treatment.

Does it hurt?
The pain is close to little scratches and pretty bearable. But the pain also depends on person to person’s tolerance level. The artists use a numbing gel, which reduces the pain and pinch.

Duration of the treatment
It is an extremely meticulous process and takes about 2hrs.  The results last for about three years before it begins to fade.

Aftercare
Avoid any moisturizer, sweat, and water. There will be a slight amount of redness and swelling which is normal.  The brows look darker initially but fade 30 to 40 percent.

The treatment is popular in the States and Canada, we’d have to wait a while for this to come to India.
