What's Microblading Eyebrows?
Semi-permanent microblading is a form of tattooing your eyebrows. It is a more natural looking and less invasive solution than the old permanent makeup tattooing technique. Pigment is implanted into your skin using a hand tool with a blade that has several little needles. This is used to create hair-like strokes. This technique gives your eyebrows a beautiful natural look. Microblading has recently become one of the most popular eyebrow enhancement techniques. Let's face it, it's a game-changer for anyone who wants fuller brows without having to go through the daily motions of drawing them on.
Benefits of Permanent Eyebrow Microblading
- If you are one of those people who spends time every morning drawing on your eyebrows, this may be the best solution for you.
- The results are very natural looking. It is almost impossible to spot the difference between a natural eyebrow and a microbladed one.
- Microblading isn’t just for women. At L'Exquisite's microblading salon we also offer microblading for men!
What Is The Difference Between Microblading,
Feathering and Ombre Microshading?
The microblading procedure is done with a hand tool that has a blade attachment with different needles to create little strokes to imitate eyebrow hairs. That alone is beautiful if you have enough natural eyebrows.
Microfeathering is microblading with a lighter touch focused on adding just a little to the brows existing shape.
Ombre microshading is done with an electric tattoo machine to implant the pigment is into the skin. This results in a powdery-brow look, rather than hair-like strokes. This procedure gives the brows a softer, fuller finish instead of the typical hair strokes created with microblading. Ombre micro shading it is a stippling method to implant tiny dots of pigment into the skin. A combination of microblading and Ombre shading also gives a nice appearance, and will last longer. It is best to discuss the options once we do your consultation.
Shading adds another dimension to the brows and gives them more depth. A different needle attachment is used to create that look. This technique will make your brows last longer. Most artists will do a combination of microblading and shading to get the most beautiful results.
What To Expect
- First we do a consultation.
- We measure, design and draw on the brows to make sure you like the shape and that the shape suits your face.
- Then we choose the colour that is best for your complexion.
- For the procedure, we use topical anesthetic to numb the skin.
- You may will feel a bit of microblading pain at the start of the procedure.
- The brows will look much darker for the first week or two.
- It will take about four weeks to see the final true colour.
- After 4 to 5 weeks we do a touch-up to perfect the final look.
- You must be careful to keep the skin clean and dry for the first five days.
- This means no water on your brows, no swimming, no sweating, no workouts.
- Your skin will scab.
- Do not pick off the scabs as this can result in damaging your skin as well as the colour.
- To achieve the best results possible and for your eyebrows to stay a touch-up should be done four to six weeks after the initial procedure.
- This first touch-up is very important.
- At L'Exquisite the first touch-up is included the price of the initial procedure.
Since microblading is only a semi-permanent procedure you will need a touch-up or colour boost every six to twelve months (depending on your skin) to keep your brows looking fresh and beautiful or they will eventually fade away and disappear.
Is Microblading Permanent?
I used to do permanent makeup tattooing. I started before it was even popular. Here are some comparisons of the two techniques.
- Both techniques need a touch-up six to eight weeks later in order to last.
- Brow blading lasts one to three years.
- A microblading touch up may be required if you feel the colour is fading.
- Permanent eyebrow tattoos can last five years or more. Touch-ups may also be required.
- Microblading eyebrow tattoo gives your brows a much more natural look.
- Tattooed eyebrows look more drawn on and flat.
- Microblading technique means we draw on fine hair-like strokes manually.
Other names for Eyebrow Microblading
People refer to eyebrow microblading as bow blading, 3D brows, feathering, eyebrow embroidery, shading, ombre shading, micro shading, semi-permanent brows, or eyebrow tattooing.
Microblading Eyebrow Shapes
Eyebrows are an important facial feature. Having beautifully defined eyebrows, whether they are bold or more subdued, they give your face a beautiful, finished look that stays. Eyebrows are like a facelift especially for people who don't have the greatest brows. Microblading no eyebrows is not a problem either, it just takes a lot of time to design your perfect eyebrow shape.
