WHAT IS MICROBLADING ?
Microblading is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hair stroke technique done by machine. It is done using a set of very fine needles to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because the color is closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no "spilling" under the skin.
The difference to ordinary permanent make-up is that Microblading is not done by a machine. The pigments are manually placed into the skin. As with the handle of the machine the Microblading manual pen is equipped with sterile packaged blades (in U-shape or angled). The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes a fine cut. The cut is as fine as a papercut and you can hardly distinguish it from real hair. Depending on the drawing technique it creates and individual look for each eyebrow.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. People suffering from alopecia, those who have over plucked, or who have sparse eyebrow hair growth can benefit greatly from microblading. The results are natural an shaped fuller looking brows. The tattoo will initially appear darker but fade significantly during the healing process. A touch up appointment is required at a minimum of 4 weeks or longer to address any inconsistent healing. Following this, a touch up yearly is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
The technique has its origin in China, then spread all over Asia. In the last few years, the Europeans have adapted the style of eyebrow to fit European taste, hair stroke pattern, and shapes. Now the USA is catching on to this revolutionary method of semi-permanent eyebrows.
