Microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted underneath the skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. Laura will draw hair like strokes with the tool to mimic natural hair in your brows. Overall the pain is minimal, feeling like little scratches across your brow. A topical numbing cream can be applied if needed. Allotted time for the procedure is two hours, in some cases a second procedure is required.
Things to know: If you drink a lot, take aspirin, or use retinol stop one week before your treatment. Retinol makes your skin thin so there may be some bleeding.

Aftercare: Protect freshly bladed brows from all moisture- no sweaty workouts or washing your face with water. Some people experience itching or redness during the first week, which Vaseline or triple antibiotic ointment alleviates. At first brows will look slightly darker, no worries the color will fade 30%-40%.
