WHAT IS IT?
what is microblading?
Microblading, first known as 'eyebrow embroidery', is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that allows you to correct or fully reconstruct eyebrows in the most detailed form. It is ideal for creating a fuller and realistic looking brow, and is becoming an increasingly popular method in permanent makeup as documented by Hapers Bazaar & Vogue.
First introduced in Asia, Microblading (also known as micro-needling and the ‘hair stroke technique) is performed by manually depositing pigment into the upper layer of the dermis by a special hand tool (pictured).
This technique of layering pigment into the skin manually sits higher up in the skin and can creating fine and crisper hair strokes as a result. This differs from the machine method of tattooing which goes deeper and lasts longer as a result. Therefore, cosmetic tattoo brows completed using a microblading handtool or the microstroke technique are not as permanent (although have to be stated as permanent for legal reasons).
It can be used by those who want to shorten their arduous pencilling regime, or it can be used in more extreme cases such as for patients with hair loss. People suffering from alopecia, trigonometrical or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow colour, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them.If no brows are present then in the consultation the desired natural pigment is agreed on.
