Microblading lasts for about 18 months, depending on your skin and lifestyle. You can do additional touch ups to extend the duration of the treatment.
Most people report little or no pain during microblading, but everyone experiences pain differently. Some people describe the feeling of microneedles in their skin like light cat scratches or papercuts. After the microblading treatment, you might experience redness and slight swelling - most people describe it as a feeling similar to a light sunburn.

Microblading is a two-step process: the initial procedure and the microblading touch up. The first session will take about 2,5 hours. After 6 weeks, you will need to do a touch up. This second session takes about 1.5 - 2 hours.
Microblading, eyebrow blading and eyebrow embroidery all are forms of semi-permanent make-up. However microblading 3D is the latest and most precise technique. An eyebrow artist uses a special hand tool to insert tiny amounts of pigment just under the skin. With small, feather like strokes the brows are perfectly shaped and darkened, while keeping a natural look.
Why do people do it?
Eyebrows have a big impact on how you look; they balance your features and highlight your eyes. Unfortunately, very few people are born with perfect eyebrows.
Eyebrow microblading is a beauty treatment that creates the perfect fullness and shape of the brows. And it has a long lasting effect: no need to draw your eyebrows anymore and no risk of smudged makeup. Imagine how much time you save every day!
A small amount of people choose microblading because of a medical condition.
Where does it come from?
Archaeologists have found evidence that microblading is more than 5000 years old. But the beauty treatment as we know it today, is relatively new. It emerged in Asia, and for the past three years it has been extremely popular - all over the world.
The choice of eyebrow artist
Many beauty salons now offer a microblading treatment, but it’s important to choose wisely. Eyebrow microblading has a long lasting effect, so make sure the person who treats you is certified by a renowned institute. The experienced eyebrow artist at Timi is certified by PhiBrows Academy, with the level of Royal Artist - the highest level.
What about microblading 6D, 8D and 9D ?
These are marketing names but the original technique of microblading 3D was named as such for a reason : during the process, the skin is slightly pulled in three directions. It is not painful, it is just the way the artist gets maximum precision.
How does it work?
The eyebrow microblading treatment starts with designing the shape, thickness and colour of the brows. This design differs from person to person. The perfect eyebrows are based on the client’s wishes, the artist’s skill and experience and the design software if any.
Once design is done, the artist draws hair-like strokes with pigment in the upper layers of the skin. The pigment is placed with a handheld tool that has 6 to 18 microneedles. This doesn’t hurt like a regular tattoo; most people compare it to plucking eyebrows with a tweezer. The process takes about 2 to 3 hours. After about 6 weeks, a touchup is needed to ensure a perfect end result.
Immediately after the first treatment, your brows will look a bit darker. The colour will fade during the healing process that takes about 2 weeks. The eyebrow artist will advise you about aftercare during this process.
After the touch up, you will see the final result that lasts for 6 months to 2 years depending on your skin type. After 2 years, the pigment leaves the skin and leaves your eyebrows exactly as they were before.
