Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery and/or Eyebrow Feathering, is a form of Permanent Makeup, Soft Tap Technique or Japanese Method Makeup which is implemented using a handheld tool comprised of between 6-14 micro needles in the shape of a blade, hence the name Microblade. This technique is performed without using a machine. Pigment is collected with the Microblades, which is attached to a handheld device, and then deposited into the epidermis. This technique gives the appearance of extremely fine, crisp and natural looking hair strokes that last up to 2 years.
Microblading is a gentler alternative to Permanent Makeup due to the fact that it does not penetrate the Dermis Layer of the skin. The color is implanted closer to the surface of the skin and the applied hair strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no “spilling” of ink/ pigment under the skin, and the effects last up to 18 months, after which the pigment fades and leaves the skin. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of his or her eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other conditions that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as those who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, will blend perfectly into your natural brows. The results are a realistic, flawless, fuller looking brow.
Definitions Brows Microblading procedure normally requires multiple treatment sessions. For best results, client is required to to return for at least one perfecting treatment service session which is included in the initial service cost. This treatment service is scheduled immediately after the first treatment, and should take place 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure.
Pigments during Definition Brows Microblading are not implanted as deep into the skin as a traditional tattoo, or even micropigmentation with an electric permanent makeup device. This allows for healed results of very fine, thin, and crisp hair lines, however, results do not last as long as traditional methods. A color boost is required usually between 12-18 months. A touch-up may be required at 12 months or sooner for oily-skinned clients, those who tan often, or or often expose brow area to certain chemicals (facial peels, chlorine, anti-aging products, etc.). Pigment retention varies depending on skin type, age, aftercare, immune system, medications, certain chemicals, and the type of pigment used.
