Microblading is a method of manual tattooing that allows you to recreate, correct and improve the appearance of the natural brow. Implanting pigment with hair-like strokes in the epidermis to create a fuller brow with a sharp tool. The 2-part process includes an initial session, followed by an enhancement session. Results last 1-2 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. With teh proper technique, microbladed eyebrows look beautiful and completely natural. The best possible healed results require strict adherence to aftercare instructions and an understanding of the healing process.
The procedure sounds a lot like a tattoo, because that's exactly what it is. Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo that has crisper lines than permanent makeup and wont fade into unnatural shades of blue and pink over time. There are 2 major differences that make microblading more natural looking compared to the results permanent cosmetics. First, microblading uses pigment that has an iron oxide base. An iron oxide base allows the color to softly fade over time and ultimately vanish, unlike inks used in cosmetic tattoos. Second, the pigment used for microblading isn't implanted into the skin as deeply as the depth used for permanent cosmetic procedures. 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.
While most people are great candidates for microblading there are a few contraindications to be aware of. If you have any questions at all, please give us a call!
