What is Microblading ?

Microblading is a form of a cosmetic semi-permanent makeup performed using, a manual (not a machine) disposable handheld tool, composed with very fine needles resembling the shape of a blade (we call it a microblade), to hand draw each individual hair and simultaneously implant the pigment into the skin. 

How Microblading is done ?

Each new hair stroke that is drawn by an MLA Master Artist is meant to simulate the client natural eyebrows hair and seamlessly blend it with the client existing brows to add color and fullness resulting in a very natural look. Our microblading process ensures that we design a customized shape, look, and feel that complements your face and your personality. With our experienced MLA Master Artists at the helm, the results will be gorgeous yet undetectable

Who is Microblading for ?

Microblading is an ideal solution for clients who have patchy, thin, or uneven eyebrows and are looking for the most natural looking results. However, not everyone is a candidate for microblading and there are different elements to consider such as skin condition and health. Microblading is most suitable for clients with normal skin and small pores. Oil in the skin can cause the Microblading hair-stroke to expand and blur so the less oily the client skin is, the better the result would be. At MLA, we have very strict guidelines that we follow to decide who is a good candidate for microblading and who should avoid microblading!

Are there different techniques and approaches to Microblading ?

Yes, there are more than a few different approaches to Microblading. There are 1D Eyebrows, where hair strokes all go in one direction. There are 3D Eyebrows, where the hair strokes are laid out in a specific pattern across the eyebrow ridges, Creating a 3-D effect. Here at MLA, world-renowned microblading artist Lindsey Ta created a specific hair pattern that has been recognized as one of the most natural and popular microblading designs in the industry. This transformational microblading pattern, can be performed accurately only by an MLA Master Artists, is the reason why customers come here from all over the world.

How many sessions do I need for a new set of Microbladed eyebrows?

A new set of Microbladed eyebrows takes two appointments to complete. The technique and art of microblading is very delicate and for this reason it needs two visits to ensure that all the strokes are evenly saturated with pigment. The second appointment is called a complementary touchup and takes place 6 to 8 weeks after the initial appointment after the pigments settled into the skin. In this complementary touchup, the artist makes any needed adjustments and ensures each hair-stroke has even color.

How do I maintain my new microbladed brows?

We recommend yearly touchup, after the initial complementary touchup, to maintain the crispness and freshness of the color. Natural fading occurs from external factors such as exposure to the sun as well as internal factors such as the gradual break down of pigments as your body metabolizes it out of your system. Everyone can experience the fading process differently and it really comes down to skin type and lifestyle
