Each microblading stroke is applied individually, allowing the tattoo artist/beauty therapist control of the shape, color and density of the completed eyebrows.
Such cosmetic manipulation implies injecting special colouring pigment under the skin. It imitates natural eyebrows hair. The differences between ordinary tattoo and this procedure lies in providing microblading manually while the first procedure named eyebrows tattoo is completely made by special equipment and created a flat color on eyebrows area.

Then during a procedure they apply step #2 numbing cream, that has epinephrine which stops bleeding and anesthetizes the complete eyebrow area for 15-20 minutes, that enough time for professionals to complete the procedure with a needle. Usually the whole process should last for an hour including the consultation, the numbing cream application, predrawing with pencil and work with a needle, finishing touch where the post care treatment has been advised.
