Microblading has been called the future of eyebrows, but what is it?
Microblading is a technique used by beauticians as a method of applying semi-permanent make-up.
It is done by manually inserting pigment into the upper layers of the skin using a manual blade; this means the strokes are sharp and crisp which gives shape and fullness to the eyebrows.
Because it is achieved by hand the results should look natural and just like hair strokes.
What is semi-permanent make-up?
Semi-permanent makeup is the process of implanting pigment into the epidermis using a fine needle; this is similar to a tattoo process. However, this is usually less painful, and the ink used is typically a mineral based product, and the results are not permanent.
How does it work?
Before starting the microblading process a technician will take some measurements on your brow bone, this will outline the perfect shape that suits your brows.
The entire process will usually take approximately 1 – 2 hours to complete. It’s also wise to get at least one touch up after your original session to extend the lifetime of your results.
Depending on your commitment to the aftercare treatment, the healing process is relatively quick; but due to how the skin heals the final results may not be visible until several weeks after your original appointment.
Make sure that you always follow your technician’s advice, and ensure you follow our aftercare Do’s and Don’t.
How long will it last?
Semi-permanent makeup will usually last for a couple of years, to ensure the lifetime of your eyebrows yearly touch-ups is an excellent way of extending the life of your new brows.
