Are you sick of filling in your eyebrows every day? Do you struggle with thin, sparse and gappy brows? Are you looking for a natural looking solution to fuller, thicker and flattering looking brows?
Microblading, also known as feather touch tattooing, is a form of semi-permanent tattooing that mimics the effect of real brow hairs through ultra-fine precise strokes. The individually drawn hairs enhance the shape of your brow creating a natural, full and flawless look.
The procedure costs $480, which includes your consultation, custom formulated tattoo pigment, the Microblading itself plus the numbing cream. Four weeks after having your brows microbladed, you will require a touch up session. The four week touch up is $155 (exclusively only for clients who have had their procedure completed at Eden Spa).

What is Microblading?
Microblading is an advanced semi-permanent tattooing technique that lasts 12-18 months. The Microblade tool uses superfine needles to deposit pigment into the epidermis, creating thin hair like marks. The ultra-fine precise strokes mimic the effect of real brow hairs. As the needle deposits pigment into the close skin surface of the eyebrow, the strokes appear very crisp and fine, with no ‘spilling’ or smudging under the skin. This process results in ultra fine hair like strokes and a perfectly transformed brow. It is ideal for those after a fuller and realistic eyebrow.
The pigments used in this method are made of safe ingredients that are hypoallergenic. The pigments also include no heavy metals and are free of coal tar derivatives. Safety is also ensured in the various tools within the microblade. Rest assured that immensely hygienic tools are used, which also contain disposable parts from client to client.
What to expect during the Microblading process?
- Consultation with your technician who will draw the shape of your brow in with removable pencil. The technician will consider your input but also consider key measurements of your face and eyebrows. This will ensure the best flattering customized brow for you.
- Prior to the microblading process, a topical numbing cream application to minimize discomfort. This will be followed by further topical anesthetics to reduce minimal pain during the procedure.
- Expect your technician to specifically formulate a pigment colour for you. The pigment will match your original brow colour and seamlessly blend with existing hairs. Initially, your brows may appear darker, but fade significantly over a fortnight.
- Anticipate a required touch up after this month period, as healing may have affected the pigment.
What to expect in the healing process?
Our skin is a living and breathing action orientated organ. It does a huge job in protection, regulating our body temperature and a whole lot more! The health of your skin will determine the length and viability of your Feather Touch Tattoo healing process. This is what you should expect in the healing process:
- Healing will commence with an inflammation response. The tattoo pigment must heal within the skin to become permanent. This process ensure the permanency. Do not interfere with any inflammation - this is normal and necessary for proper healing.
- You may notice that the tattoo dramatically darkens. This will naturally exfoliate off in 3-5 days, revealing a lightened Feather Touch tattoo. The new skin underneath will need additional 2 to 3 weeks to completely heal.
- As the skin is a live organ with cells and fluids, some areas of pigment will not hold. This is why a touch up session is included.
- It may take more than one touch up session. Age and thickness of skin plays a large role. Thinner, older skin has more difficulty retaining pigment.
Benefits of Microblading?
- The most upfront benefit is enhancing the shape of your brows. Increased fullness will provide a natural and flawless brow, boosting your self confidence and further flattering your facial dynamics.
- Filling in your brows every day can be time consuming and laborious. As microblading is semi-permanent, it promises you will no longer have to fill in your brows daily, meaning you can cut out filling from your daily beauty regime. It will highly benefit those who no longer want to rely on beauty products, or in more extreme cases, those who experience hair loss or alopecia.
- Microblading is a long-term solution to filling in your brows. The results can last anywhere from 12-18 months, with a touch up only required after a month and once a year after. It is very low maintenance and perfect for those after brows that will need minimal upkeep.
Who is Microblading suitable for?
Microblading is suitable for those who want to fully reconstruct, define and fill in gaps of their eyebrows. It is suitable for those who are after natural, full and shaped brows, no matter the amount of hair present. The suitability also extends to:
- Individuals who don’t want to spend their time applying makeup, or prefer a look that isn’t so ‘made up’.
- Those expected to maintain a certain level of grooming for work purposes.
- People suffering alopecia and hair loss.
- Those who enjoy sports and swimming.
- People who are after very low maintenance and upkeep.
