Reach out for a consultation, and we’ll help you choose the service that’s a perfect fit for your unique needs. Here is a quick overview to help you learn a little more about microblading and how it works:
What is Microblading?
A microblading treatment uses fine-point, tiny needles to place pigment under the skin in the eyebrow area. Instead of a full tattoo gun, the microblading tool is a finer process that allows careful placement of each line.
The result is semi-permanent brow hairs that appear to fill out your natural brows. People love the results because, unlike eyebrow makeup, microblading doesn’t wash off at the end of the day.
Are Tattoo Eyebrows Permanent?
Unlike regular tattoos that last indefinitely, microblading is a semi-permanent type of tattooing. The ink deposits aren’t ingrained into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos.
Microblading doesn’t last as long as a regular tattoo because it is semi-permanent. Over time, the body metabolizes the ink, so the appearance of the tattooed eyebrows will start to fade away. The dye particles in a microblading treatment are less concentrated compared to a traditional tattoo.
How Long Does Microblading Lasts
Depending on your skin type, you can expect microblading to last between 1 to 3 years. For example, oilier skin types tend to experience fading more quickly compared to dry skin types. Most people choose to schedule a touch-up a few weeks after the initial appointment, then return for touch-ups annually.
How to Know if Microblading is Right for You
There are a variety of reasons why people choose microblading as part of their beauty treatment routine. If you have thin, faint brows – or have lost your brow hairs because of alopecia – then microblading is a great way to restore a natural appearance.
The main benefit of microblading is that you can enjoy on-point eyebrows every day without the need to pull out an eyebrow pencil in the morning. This treatment gives you fuller, perfectly-shaped eyebrows that require minimal maintenance.
Selecting a Studio for Microblading
Choosing a good microblading Studio is key. Not only does the person’s experience influence the overall results you can achieve, but you can lean on their recommendations when selecting the color, shape, and fullness of your new brows.
In addition to standard microblading services, you might also discuss combo brows. This method uses two semi-permanent techniques: microblading and shading (also known as powder brows). The hair strokes are placed using a microblading tool around the brow border. Then, the powder effect is used to fill in the body of the brow.
