What is Microblading?
Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery and/or Eyebrow Feathering, Semi-Permanent Makeup, Soft Tap Technique or Japanese Method Makeup, which is implemented using a handheld tool. The hand tool can comes in different shapes and micro needle configurations, 6-21 needles, hence the name Microblade. While some eyebrows are done using a specialized machine, this technique is performed completely by hand. Pigment is collected within the micro needles, and then deposited into the dermis, directly below the epidermis. This technique gives the appearance of fine crisp, natural looking hair strokes that last up to 2 years, if taken care of properly.
The color is implanted into the dermis of the skin and the applied hair strokes appear crisp and very fine. The effects last 12-24 months, depending on how you care for your brows, after which the pigment fades and leaves the skin. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance or fill in the look of his or her eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other conditions that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as those who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows. But remember, this technique will need upkeep from time to time. If anything, it gives the client the opportunity to change color or shape down the road.
Microblading procedure will require multiple treatment sessions. For best results, client is recommended to return for at least one perfecting treatment service session. This treatment service and should take place 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure. A color boost is required usually between 12-18 months. A touch-up may be required at 12 months or sooner for oily-skinned clients, those who tan often, or often expose brow area to certain chemicals (facial peels, chlorine, anti-aging products, etc.). Pigment retention varies depending on skin type, age, aftercare, immune system, medications, certain chemicals, and the type of pigment used.
