WHAT IS MICROBLADING

Eyebrow Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo that enhances eyebrow beauty with completely natural-looking results and the effects of microblading last from 1-3 years.

Microblading results mimic the appearance of natural strands of eyebrow hair. By strategically tattooing each hair-like stroke, enhanced eyebrow shape, color, and density is achieved.

MICROBLADING EYEBROWS

Eyebrow microblading goes by a few different names like, microstroking, micropigmentation, eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow feathering, and 3D eyebrows.

No matter the name, the procedure of microblading eyebrows has been popular in parts of Asia and Europe for roughly 25 years.

A microblade tool looks similar to an exacto knife, but instead of there being one big blade, there is a series of micro needles. The microblade is dipped into a selected color of pigment and then used to make a fine cut, or microstroke, in the skin.

This process results in the pigment being implanted into the skin, which is known as micropigmentation. With the proper technique, microbladed eyebrow results look beautiful and completely natural.

The best possible healed results require strict adherence to the microblading aftercare instructions, and understanding the microblading healing process.

MICROBLADING vs PERMANENT MAKEUP

The procedure sounds a lot like a tattoo, because that’s exactly what it is. More specifically, microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo.

However, microbladed eyebrows are nothing like grandma’s permanent tattooed eyebrows that sort of look like they were drawn on using a sharpie, and then fade into unnatural shades of blue and pink over time.

Microblading by Mercedes

There are two major differences that make microblading more natural looking compared to the results permanent cosmetics are known for.

First, the type of pigment used for microblading has an iron oxide base. Iron oxide has been a popular ingredient in cosmetics like foundation, blush, lipstick, and eye shadow for decades. An iron oxide base allows the color to softly fade over time and ultimately vanish, unlike the inks used in permanent cosmetic tattoos.

Second, the pigment used for microblading isn’t implanted into the skin as deeply compared to the depth used for permanent cosmetic procedures. The proper depth for the color to be implanted during the microblading procedure is the upper layer of the dermis. If the microstroke doesn’t go deep enough, the color retention will be poor, and if it’s too deep, it causes scarring and the healed strokes look blurry instead of fine and crisp.

The pigment being implanted to the correct depth, combined with its iron oxide base is what gives microblading results the appearance of natural looking eyebrows. The semi permanent qualities of the microblading pigment prevent it from fading into unnatural shades that are so common with permanent cosmetics.

Not only do microblading results look amazingly natural, but they also require no daily upkeep, so kiss the daily eyebrow routine goodbye. A touch-up 6-18 months later to keep the colour looking vibrant, and the microblade strokes looking crisp is recommended.
