D’Lash Studios will be offering eyebrow microblading and permanent eye liner in 2019.
What is microblading?
In this procedure, you get a manual tattoo made with a dedicated tool that looks like a slender Exacto knife but isn’t a blade at all. Artists arrange tiny needles so they can make small incisions in the skin with the tool’s tip depending on the thickness and depth of hair strokes they want to etch. After the ink is wiped off, you’ve got eyebrows! D’Lash creates very natural, thin hair strokes creating a more realistic look.
Touch-up required: Yes, usually four to eight weeks after your first appointment. In general, it take two sessions for the full effect of full brows. There are a number of factors that affect how well you retain pigment. (Oily skin doesn’t hold onto ink as well as dry skin; if you’re anemic, your body may use iron oxide in the pigment as a supplement and the tattoos will fade faster, she says.) On your second appointment, an artist might go over original strokes to darken them for a client, tweak the shape, or build up sparse brows by layering thinner strokes in between.
How long it lasts: One to two years. They will fade if touch ups are not maintained.
Repeat microblading by an unskilled technician can cause scarring, which is difficult to tattoo over. Always go to a CERTIFIED permanent make-up artist like Dina at D’Lash Studios.
