Microblading is the newest trend in eyebrow enhancement. Clients may also refer to microblading as eyebrow embroidery, 3D eyebrow embroidery, microstroking or feathering. Pigment is implanted into the skin with a manual tool that is composed of various needles to form a "blade".

The needles are thinner than those used with machines. Unlike the traditional machine for permanent makeup, the needles do not vibrate and is done entirely with a hand-held pen that holds the blades. The strokes are not as deep so they do not reach into the deepest layer of the dermis. The effect is a very natural feathered look, which will last from 1 to 3 years.
