HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?

This varies from person to person depending on your skin, lifestyle and health condition. Microblading is considered semi-permanent and will fade over time. Microbladed eyebrows last 9 months to one years for most people. An annual touch up is recommended after the follow up touch up.

This is a very common question. During your consultation, I will assess your skin type and the look you are trying to achieve. Both options are very natural looking, however, microblading is designed for a specific skin type. Permanent Makeup on the other hand, is ideal for all skin types and offers a wider range of brow techniques. Both very different in application, microblading is done with multiple pins (blade) and for permanent makeup, a Nano Needle (one very fine needle) can be used, powered by a machine.
