What Is Microblading?
Some eyebrows require little effort to look perfect while others require the help of a small miracle just to get by. Even though naturally perfect eyebrows are few and far between, eyebrow microblading makes it possible to transform any brows into the closest thing to naturally perfect as possible.
MICROBLADING VS PERMANENT MAKEUP
The procedure sounds a lot like a tattoo. That’s exactly what microblading is, a semi permanent eyebrow tattoo.
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. This is different compared to 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. 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.
Buh-bye BROW ROUTINE
Not only do the results look amazingly natural, but they also require no daily upkeep. Kiss the daily eyebrow routine goodbye.
Microbladed brows won’t require daily maintenance because they are semi permanent. So, they typically last somewhere between one to three years depending on skin type and lifestyle. We recommend a touch up 12-18 months later. This keeps the color looking vibrant, and the microblade strokes looking crisp.
Semi-permanent eyebrows are actually one of the benefits of microblading. Keep in mind skin changes with age, and eyebrow trends can differ with time. The eyebrow shape and color can be adapted to fit changes in skin and eyebrow trends.
