Microblading or micropigmentation is a nonsurgical treatment that allows our licensed micropigmentation specialist to pigment eyebrows and other facial areas to enhance your appearance. Small particles of pigment are impregnated into the skin with a micropigmentation device to recreate thinning eyebrows with a fine stroke technique that mimics the appearance of hair strands. Color is matched closely to your natural shade. A similar technique can also be used on the scalp.
Treatments average approximately 2 hours and are well tolerated with local numbing creams. This is a phenomenal treatment for those looking to rejuvenate yourself.
