Hair Restoration Microbalding is a treatment performed on the scalp to conceal hair thinning and shedding. The treatment involves a handheld tool that essentially tattoos your scalp to create the illusion of thicker hair. Unlike scalp micropigmentation, where a digital machine is used, microblading is done completely by hand. A small blade deposits ink across your scalp to mimic the appearance of more hair. Microblading needles are about three times smaller than regular tattoo needles; this allows our microblading artist to draw very fine, hair-like strokes for natural-looking results.
