What’s the difference between Microblading Brows and having your brows tattooed?
Unlike tattooing, Microblading brows doesn’t go deep into the skin. It is more on the surface of the skin. Also, it isn’t permanent as the colors fade within a period of 12 to 18 months. Hence the term, “semi-permanent”, is often used with microblading brows. For Microblading brows, the hair strokes are a lot more natural and finer than any tattoo and the brush strokes from our Aestheticians are masterfully done and crafted.

Your eyebrows will eventually fade away if you don’t top up every 18 months or so. There is no scarring or discoloration with the pigments used.
