Microblading, also known as micro stroking, is an advanced brow embroidery technique whereby a superfine row of needles is used to create thin, hair-like marks on the skin, giving the appearance of hair. It can be used by those who want to toss their eyebrow pencil, or it can be used in more extreme cases such as for patients with hair loss.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a manual method of implanting pigment in hair-like strokes in the epidermis to create the look of fuller brows. This form of tattooing is the newest trend in Semi-Permanent Makeup. The natural-looking results are achieved with a sharp, hand-held blade made up of 7+ microneedles.
- Reduce the amount of time necessary to get ready in the morning.
- Gives those with skin diseases like alopecia or hair loss secondary to chemo a natural looking brow.
- Does not smudge or smear off, even with exercise for those with an active lifestyle.
- Sessions only take 1 ½ hours.
- Pigment does not change color, only loses saturation
- It’s very safe.
It is ideal for creating a very full and realistic looking brow and is becoming an increasingly popular method in permanent makeup. During the treatment, after a brow consultation, the new brow shape outline is penciled on, the brow area is numbed, and then pigment is implanted into the skin using very tiny needle strokes. These are built up into the new shape, and the area gradually made denser with lots of tiny hair strokes, depending on the desired result.
One, two or even three different shades of pigment can be used, creating a single, double or even triple layer brow tattoo, giving a 3D brow effect.
The treated brows are usually a little tender, and the color a little darker than the healed result – but they are not normally so dark as to be unsightly. Normal activities like work and socializing can generally be resumed the same day. They lighten considerably to a softer tone over the next 10-14 days.
