Eyebrow microblading, also referred to as: ‘embroidery,’ ‘micro-pigmentation,’ ‘3D microblading,’ ‘microstroking,’ ‘hairstroke,' or ‘permanent make up (PMU),’ is a semi-permanent method art form in which licensed artists hand-create eyebrow hairs that mimic your natural eyebrow hairs.
How Does it Work?
Your artist will choose specific tools, pigments, and specialized, unique techniques that compliment your specific structure and skin type. The pigment is manually applied just below the epidermis and the most shallow part of the dermis, using extremely fine, comb-like needles. The results are natural, youthful eyebrows, as the hairs are artistically drawn into the skin according to your unique and natural hair growth pattern. A complementary touch up is included 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment. Are you a candidate for microblading? Read through the FAQs to decide!
