Microblading is a semi-permanent method of brow tattooing done manually by hand. This technique gives you fine and natural-looking hair strokes that will last between 12 to 18 months. The process is done using a special hand-held tool that has a unique blade to insert dye into the skin’s second dermal layer. What you get is perfectly shaped, full and symmetrical brows that highlight your eyes.
Unlike the normal tattooing, microblading is a less painful treatment that leaves you with options when you want to change your eyebrows after some time. A numbing cream can be used before treatment to ensure a painless process.
Microblading uses a type of pigment that is not deeply ingrained in the skin like the one used in tattooing. Your body metabolizes the microblading pigment with time until it completely fades away. The dye particles applied during the process are also less concentrated, which creates a softer and more realistic appearance.
What are the main differences between microblading and eyebrow tattoos?
• Microblading is semi-permanent while eyebrow tattoos are permanent.
• Microblading lasts between one to two years, which gives you the opportunity to change your look after some time.
• Microblading eyebrows are hand-drawn unlike tattoos that are done using a machine. This means less impact on the skin and you will not experience any form of bleeding.
• Blacks don’t turn to blue or brown when you do microblading. The kind of ink used in microblading ensures that the colour remains true to its original hue even if it fades with time.
