What is Microblading and how long does it last?

A microblade is a handheld instrument that contains a number of tiny needles in a row that resembles a small blade. The Permanent MakeUp (PMU) artist will dip the edge of the microblade into pigment and then make small thin cuts that deposit the pigment into the skin to simulate strands of fine eyebrow hairs.

How does it look immediately after and why do I need a touch-up?

The eyebrows will appear darker than expected immediately after the procedure and for a few days thereafter. Don’t be concerned, the color fades as healing takes place. You should see the anticipated color once the eyebrows are fully healed. Fading may continue over time.

A touch-up procedure is required 6 weeks after the initial application due to the healing process.

Eyebrow tattoos may last between 1-3 years. However, there are many variables that can alter this time frame. These variables include but are not limited to adherence to aftercare, the healing process, health status, and sun exposure, to name a few. Many things may happen during the healing process. The color may fade too much, some flaking may occur, and/or some additional detail may need to be added. It is recommended that a touch-up should be completed in about 6 weeks from the initial application for best overall results.
