Manual micropigmentation offers endless possibilities. The natural hair effect, obtained with Microblading, allows to restructure and define the line of the eyebrows. Microshading (powder effect) adds density and definition. It can be combined with Microblading for an even more realistic 3D effect! Nanolips colors and defines lips naturally, while creating the illusion of added volume. The Nanoliner makes it possible to densify the base of the eyelashes in order to illuminate the eyes. For a glamorous look, it is possible to pigment a touch of eyeliner to further highlight your look.
How long will scarring last?
Microblading healing takes place in two distinct stages: external healing and internal healing. External healing is the time required for the skin to regain a healthy appearance on the surface. Following Microblading, small scabs will form on the surface of the epidermis. Once fallen, they will give way to the pigmentation which will appear faded and too light in places. External healing will then be complete. This process can take 7-10 days for eyebrows & eyes and 3-5 days for lips.
Don’t worry, the healing process is not complete as the skin continues to heal in the deeper layers of the epidermis. The cells and the pigment migrate to the surface which revives the color of the Microblading. This process can take 4 to 6 full weeks depending on the service. The art of micro pigmentation requires patience before you can observe the final result. Once the healing is complete, a touch-up will be necessary to perfect the result and ensure good retention of the pigment.
How does the procedure work?
Our experienced technicians will begin by asking you questions to find out your desires and expectations regarding pigmentation. A drawing will then be made according to your morphology, allowing to obtain a nice result highlighting your natural beauty. The choice of pigment will be made according to your phototype (skin color) and your complexion (skin undertones). The pigmentation will then begin, during which a topical anesthetic will be applied to make the Microblading procedure more comfortable.
How long does the result last?
The result of a Microblading procedure lasts between 1 and 3 years before disappearing almost completely. The color will fade gradually to keep the result as natural as possible. We advise to maintain your Microblading by making touch-ups in order to keep the result longer. We must not forget that micropigmentation is an ART and not an exact science. Results may vary depending on age, cell regeneration capacity, level of pigment used and lifestyle.

What you need to do before & after the procedure
Before the procedure
- It is important to gently exfoliate the area to be pigmented (lips-eyebrows) a few days before the treatment and to moisturize the area intensely to allow better absorption of the pigment by the skin.
- You should not expose the area to be pigmented to the sun for at least 1 week before the procedure. If necessary, apply sun protection frequently.

After the procedure
- It is suggested to apply cold water compresses during the first 24 hours to reduce edema. Know that swelling is normal, it usually disappears after 24 to 48 hours.
- You cannot apply makeup to your eyes for the full duration of external healing, which is about 7-10 days.
- It is very important not to try to remove the small scabs that have formed on the surface of the skin. These should fall naturally to maximize pigment retention.

- It is normal to have significant swelling following the delivery. This can give the illusion of uneven pigmentation. Don’t worry, it will decrease considerably after a few hours.
- The external healing time varies from 7 to 10 days. The pigmentation will be very intense at first but will diminish considerably following healing.
- Do not scratch, rub or pick off scabs. These should fall naturally in order to maximize pigment retention.
