It is a semi-permanent eyebrow makeup technique that offers the possibility of adding more density, modifying its design or creating an eyebrow from scratch in case of alopecia. This technique is less painful than micropigmentation (which is permanent) and its results are more natural. It is done by manually applying a pigment to the basal layer of the epidermis, which allows the specialist to create a perfect eyebrow for each person’s physiognomy. And it is that depending on how your face is, the shape of the eyebrows should be different.
Frequently Asked Questions
Microblading is the artistic technique of tattooing individual hair strokes with a handheld tool called a microblade. Unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists hand draw each hair to match the color and coarseness of your eyebrows. The result? Gorgeous, natural looking eyebrows.
Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 2 years for most people, before it usually needs a touch up. For permanent lips and eyeliner, it lasts 3 to 5 years.
Most clients report little or no pain! We use a topical anesthetic before the procedure to numb the affected area.
Technically microblading is a form of micropigmentation, but we use a microblade to hand draw individual hair strokes. Micropigmentation specialists use a permanent makeup machine, which offers less control and results in blurrier strokes.
Stay out of the sun and water while your microblading heals. Avoid chlorine, exfoliation creams, and sun exposure; they may cause your color to fade. We recommend applying a small amount of A&D ointment twice a day.
Microblading is not recommended for those with oily skin or large pores. If that’s you, you may want a shading or combination shading and microblading technique. We also do not provide microblading for people: under 18 years old, pregnant or nursing, if you have diabetes, glaucoma, skin diseases such as Shingles, psoriasis or eczema on the area of treatment, allergies to makeup, Keloid disorder, HIV/Hepatitis, skin cancer, hemophilia, or if you’re taking skin medications like ro-accutane and steroids.
Often we cannot. But if the previous tattoo or permanent makeup has faded considerably, sometimes we can. We will have to use a combo or shading technique.
