“Microblading is a semi permanent makeup that mimics actual growing hair on your eyebrows”
Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hairstroke technique. It is done using 14 very fine needles to deposit pigments into the epidermis.
Microblading is super natural and soft; It’s meant to be natural, not makeup ready. If you’re looking for a dramatic look or want to make your eyebrows pop you would have to use a powder. Microblading is super easy to enhance since you already have a guide to follow on the days you’re looking for this look.
The scratching sound from the blade may sound scary, but after a layer of numbing cream, clients say it doesn’t hurt.
First, the perfect eyebrow shape for your face is mapped out. After color matching ink to brow hairs, a blade made of more than 14 tiny needles is used to feather hair strokes into the skin.
Microblading is semi-permanent and lasts between one and three years. It’s highly recommended clients do not have sun or tanning bed exposure for 30 days prior to microblading. The skin does tend to scab after microblading, but that will heal. I recommend making an effort not to sweat the day of the procedure or for 10 days after. Consuming alcohol or caffeine the night before or day of microblading isn’t recommended either.
“This is not invasive what so ever. You’re not going to get scar tissue and you’re not going to get scar build up anything like that underneath the skin.”
Botox should NOT be done 3 months before OR after Microblading. Botox manipulates the area of the skin and can change the look of your eyebrows entirely. Botox can also move around the pigment that is placed under your skin leaving you with uneven 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 is relatively new, but it has been popular in parts of Asia and Europe for roughly 25 years.
Microblading eyebrows continues to grow in popularity in the United States, and even though it looks like the party might have arrived a little late here, it’s actually a good thing as it has allowed the techniques to improve since its origin.
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, microstroke, in the skin.
This process results in the pigment being implanted into the skin, which is known as micropigmentation. With the proper technique, the 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.
The procedure sounds a lot like a tattoo, because that’s exactly what it is. More specifically, microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo.
First, PhiBrows pigment is used for microblading. Their pigments have nano levels of Iron Oxide, which is so small that it’s safe for human body.
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.
There won’t be any love lost when saying, “see ya later” to the daily eyebrow routine. Although microbladed brows don’t require daily maintenance, you will still have to pluck or wax your eyebrows.
