Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that can give you fuller eyebrows or make your eyeliner more defined. Dr. Sandra (our acupuncturist) will help to create a natural look, and deposit pigment in minute lines into the skin.
The history of microblading goes back to the ancient Egyptians who were known for using henna to define their eyebrows and eyeliner. They used the tattoo-like technique to create a more natural look.
The procedure itself involves delicately inserting ink into the skin using a hand-held tool with a small blade at the end. The ink is then bladed into the skin, giving it a natural appearance that lasts from 18 months to two years, depending on how well you take care of your microbladed eyebrows and eyeliner.
It can be considered safe when done by a professional. It's important for customers to do their research on where they're getting this procedure done, as well as what kind of practitioner they will be receiving it from. It's also important for customers to know that not all artists specialize in microblading, which is why Calgary Laser Health is safer than others.
