Natural Effect Microblading is an advanced semi-permanent makeup technique, which consists on tattooing hair by hair using a hand tool composed by fine needles to insert pigment in the dermal layer of the skin, creating the most natural hair simulated eyebrows. Compared to a traditional tattoo, Microblading does not go as deep into the skin and uses semi-permanent pigments that fade overtime
Nanoblading is the latest technique in semi-permanent makeup, which can be performed with a machine and a nano needle or with a manual tool using a combination of thinner nano needles with a smaller diameter, making the hair strokes narrower and following the natural hair growth direction for a more natural effect.

Healed Microblading results last between 1 to 3 years depending on your skin type and lifestyle.

The initial procedure takes about 2-3 hours depending on the case. On average, we start with a 15 min consultation, then proceed to take measurements for eyebrow design and symmetry check , which take about 1 hour, while the Microblading process takes about 40 min and an extra 20 min for shading.
