About Microblading & Shading

How is Microblading Done?

It’s typically done using a manual “micro blade” to deposit hair-like strokes of pigment into the outer layers of your skin. Your microblading artist will create a brow shape that perfectly matches your style. 

You will be involved in the entire process while we customize the look that is most flattering for your face. Your artist will go over every detail with you, considering the size and thickness of your desired brows. The pigment that we will use will be determined based on your skin tone and hair color. Your brand-new microbladed brows is guaranteed to highlight your best facial features.


How is Microshading Done?

Depending on the style that you want, microshading uses a PMU (permanent makeup) machine to achieve fuller or denser brows. Instead of creating individual hair strokes, your artist will stipple repetitive dots of pigment on your brow area to create your desired shading effect.

The microshading machine is designed with acupuncture-like needles which allows the pigment to set better on oilier skin and lets the artist emulate a sleek and fuller finish.


How is the Blade + Shade Combo Brow Treatment Done?

As it is a combination of both microblading and shading, the Blade + Shade Combo treatment uses both the micro blade hand tool and any of the microshading tools or machines. If you look closely, you will see that combination brows start off with hair-like strokes. This is done using the classic microblading manual technique. From middle to the end, a combination of methods will be used. Since it has the added shading effect, the results appear to have a hint of makeup.


How Does it Feel While Receiving the Treatment?

Each client experiences varying levels of discomfort during the procedure. It depends on the individual’s pain tolerance and skin sensitivity. In general, clients only feel little to moderate pain. Remember that even though microblading creates micro incisions, they only get to the outer or superficial layers of the skin.
