Sculpt Calgary is stoked to announce that we now offer Microblading a.k.a. Eyebrow Embroidery a.k.a Awesome Eyebrows from the moment you wake up till you go to bed.
Microblading is the perfect solution for those who want to reconstruct, define, and fill in gaps or resolve over plucked brow syndrome. For those that want greater definition of their arches or are sick and tired of navigating through brow pencils, powders, gels, and waxes each and every day –
Microblading is the answer to creating natural looking, perfectly shaped eyebrows.
For those of us that remember the days when eyebrow tattoos looked like sharpie-d on caterpillars crawling above the eyes, don’t worry. Microblading has elevated the art of brow tattoos, offering a semi-permanent solution that uses uber fine lines to create the desired brow shape and results in brows that a Cara Delevinge baby was born with. They look natural, last anywhere from 1 to 3 years and require minimal maintenance.
Why are Eyebrows So Important?
Aside from their function of keeping dust, dirt, and sweat from entering the eyes, your eyebrows play a prominent role in emotional expression and facial recognition. In fact, a study conducted by the University of Lethbridge found that eyebrows are actually more significant than the eyes when it comes to leaving a lasting impression.
Researchers showed test participants images of celebrities without eyebrows, followed by images of celebrities without eyes. Test participants were able to correctly identify 56 percent of the celebrities shown without eyes but only 46 percent of celebrities without eyebrows. What does this mean? It means that your eyebrows are actually more memorable than your eyes according to science.
Science aside, the right eyebrow shape can help brighten your appearance and make you look more youthful. The following compilation of celebrity images from Beauty Point of View illustrates the subtle yet significant difference brows can make in one’s overall appearance:

I Woke Up Like This: Semi-Permanent Vs. Permanent Tattoos
The only difference between a semi-permanent tattoo and a permanent one is how deeply the ink is injected into the skin. The deeper you go, the longer it stays. Traditional body tattoos last the test of time because tat artists use mechanized needles which are designed to inject ink deep into the dermis.
With microblading, there is no humming sound from a machine because your beauty brow specialist is using their skill, precision, and artistry to create fine lines by hand with a tool that looks like a very thin x-acto knife.
How Does Microblading work?
First things first, is finding the best brow for your face shape, what features you want to highlight the most and deciding what brow color suits you best. After gathering your brow game goals, your brow specialist draws the outline of your new brow shape, working with you until your desired look is achieved. A topical numbing agent is then applied to mitigate discomfort during the procedure.
Microblading is a meticulous process, where your esthetician uses a small blade that is actually composed of very tiny needles to create crisp and sharp fine strokes that are essentially indistinguishable from natural hairs. Depending on your desired results, your brow specialist can create a denser look by crafting lots of tiny hair strokes to build up and fill in sparse brows. Ink that matches your natural colouring is then deposited throughout the brow area in the upper layers of the skin.
Results are seen instantly and zero downtime is required. The initial colour fades gradually within the following 10 – 14 days settling into a hue that is matched perfectly to you. Healing can take up to 30 days and a touch-up appointment is included and scheduled within 4 to 8 weeks of your first session to ensure your brows have healed correctly and all is on-point.
