Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that is done to fill in thin eyebrow areas in order to make them look fuller. Unlike tattooing, microblading doesn’t go deep in the skin but is more on the surface of the skin and is not permanent as the colour fades away with 18 months. Additionally, we do micro shading in combination with microblading for eyebrow shaping and to add volume to the eyebrows.
During the procedure, Dr Tladi will measure the area around the brows, taking into account the shape of the face, symmetry, facial features, desired results, etc. She will then begin the process by gently implanting the pigment by making featherweight strokes. Each stroke is a superficial line on the brow’s skin, and the colour pigment seeps in and settles then. A numbing ointment may be used again if any discomfort is experienced during the procedure.
A final layer of colour pigment will be added and will stay on for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, the aesthetician will wipe the colour pigment off, revealing the beautiful and full brows.
