What is Microblading?
Microblading is the newest innovation in eyebrows! Lasting from 1-3 years, Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that will fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair, a hand held tool is used to make precise incisions and insert quality colour pigment into the desired area. Different shading or 3-D effects can be created around the incisions for a fuller, ready-to-go, made-up look. The result is perfect eyebrows that require no daily maintenance provided you follow before and after care instructions without exception. It is important to also read and understand the steps below to ensure your complete satisfaction with the process.
*All Microblading services include a free touch up that must be booked within 6 - 8 weeks after initial procedure.
Microblading is a valuable investment and requires discipline to achieve the satisfaction and convenience of perfectly shaped, no-maintenance eyebrows. Clients may be avoidably unhappy if they have failed to follow before and after care instructions properly or have not read and understood what happens after the Microblading procedure is performed.
There is never a rush during any part of the Microblading process, so it’s important to know for planning purposes that the
average Microblading appointment usually takes two hours from beginning to end.
The treatment begins with developing the desired shape, then specialized ‘feathering’ semi-permanent tattoo strokes are used to fill in the shape with beautifully patterned hair-like strokes.
The color choice is individual for each client and is mixed using a selection of chemical-free, hypo-allergenic,semi-permanent micropigments to complement hair color and skin tone. Varying shades of micropigments react differently with each skin type and fade accordingly, depending on skin regimen, sun exposure, environmental and after care precautions. You should note that on oilier skin types, pigment may fade faster and may require touch-ups more often than on drier skin types. One (mandatory) free touch-up appointment is included with your initial session.
Congratulations on your new eyebrows! Proper aftercare is crucial in order to preserve the pigment and reduce chances of complications. It is normal to have some redness or swelling in the treated area for the first 24-48 hours. Immediately after the treatment, the colour is at its darkest. It will soften and appear up to 50% lighter in the following 2 weeks. Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area is completely healed (6 - 8 weeks). Your brows will go through many healing stages, all of which results in a beautifully healed brow.

At Moroccanoil®, our passion is empowering beautiful transformations. We started with the original Moroccanoil Treatment, which revolutionized the hair care industry. The use of oil based treatment products was unconventional at the time for hair and skin. The Moroccanoil brand was founded on the belief that all women should have access to these multifunctional beauty solutions. At the core of our success as a company is a simple truth… all of our products are easy to use and effective.
The Moroccanoil brand has become an industry sensation that is embraced by celebrities, runway stylists and women all over the world.
Jane Iredale, president and founder of the Jane Irdale brand since 1994 found her inspiration to develop a makeup that was good for the skin by her career in the entertainment industry where she saw actresses and models struggling with the ill-effects of the many kinds of makeup they wore. Her experience in working with women whose careers depended on a clear complexion allowed her to see how skin disorders and sensitivities not only threatened careers, but also destroyed self-confidence.
Jane has always thought of makeup as an essential part of a woman's sense of well-being and she wanted to make that easy to achieve. That's why her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one, and why every product in the line is multi-functional. Her goal is to make products that look good, feel
This has had an international resonance. The Jane Iredale brand is carried throughout the United States and world-wide in more than forty countries.
Jane's success in reaching women of all ages and nationalities is based on the belief that true makeup artistry comes not from trying to make a face conform to the latest fashion trends, but from enhancing the wearer’s natural beauty and, as a result, allowing her personality to shine.
