Microblading eyebrows is a semi-permanent makeup technique similar to eyebrow tattooing, but far more advanced. It is done manually, with a microblading tool – a blade consisting of 10-20 tiny needles – which is used to make thin incisions of the surface of the skin that look like natural brow hairs.
The microblading method mimics their hair length, color, thickness, and shape
During the microblading process, the blades are dipped into the pigments then gently cut the surface of the skin below the epidermis, the pigments are then deposited into the skin like a natural hair and the result is an illusion of hair strand by each hair strokes. Microblading becomes the solution on thin, spars and uneven eyebrows. Microblading also helps correct arches, or even create one for those who desire to have an arch whether its thicker or thinner arches with a modified shape that best suits a client’s face.
Microblading results are very realistic and virtually unidentifiable, which is why this treatment is sometimes called 3D microblading, eyebrows embroidery, feathering, etching, etc.
Unlike the traditional tattooed eyebrows, which look unnatural and last forever, as they go far deeper into the skin, eyebrow microblading pigments are inserted in the papillary dermis, just under the basal membrane between epidermis and dermis which makes it semi-permanent
Microblading is also a great solution for people who don’t have their natural eyebrows, like people with alopecia, or people who suffer from brow hair loss caused by a number of reasons (natural hair loss, invasive treatments such as chemotherapy, postpartum hair loss, etc.). By microblading 3D eyebrows, entire arches can be created from scratch.
The microblading treatment works best on people with normal to dry skin. Microblading oily skin is problematic, but not impossible. The problem is the fact that pigment is often ‘rejected’ by oily skin, and the microblading eyebrows don’t last as long due to the overproduction of sebum, which literally pushes the pigments out. It is best to treat the skin first and get the oil production on the skin under control before considering microblading. The best candidates for getting microblading are people who have patchy, sparse brows or no brow hairs at all, but want to add the illusion of fuller and thicker eyebrows. Basically, microblading is for everyone who uses eyebrows enhancement makeup every day.
Microblading is done by trained, certified, and licensed esthetician, master estheticians, microblading artist, PMU artist. In order to stay safe and healthy and get satisfactory results, never go to untrained, self-taught artist who don’t have the mentioned credentials to avoid unwanted microblading results.
Note: Having eyebrow microblading during your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity, and your skin could bleed more, which can make the procedure more complicated.
