What is Microblading?
Microblading for eyebrows is believed to have emerged in Asia long time ago. So what is microblading? It is a permanent makeup technique that creates the appearance of eyebrow hair. Microblading is also known as eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow tattoo or hair stroke eyebrows. It has become so popular in the world due to the natural looking results.
Microblading does not involve the use of a machine, it is performed by a permanent makeup technician using a hand tool. This tool is known as micbroblading pen and has needles attached to it. The person performing such procedure must have artistic skills and a great eye for detail. They have to make sure the hair strokes they draw on the eyebrow area look natural and are precise length, colour and shape.
The final look is waterproof and won’t rub off so you can look good 24/7. Whether your brows are too fair, over-plucked, badly shaped or have disappeared due to cancer treatments or alopecia, microblading is a great solution.
Take your time to choose the right microblading specialist to suit you. Don’t just focus on the cheapest price. They need to be trained, fully experienced and have full knowledge of this fine art. Most of all, they have to be professional.
As with any cosmetic tattooing, the technician is responsible for making sure that needles are sterile and single use. Disinfection of the area of the skin prior to the procedure is a must. It is recommended to choose the right technician for your eyebrow tattoo. Check the reviews, licences and the standard of training they received.
Technicians use a numbing solution, but people could still experience a little discomfort during the procedure. Microblading eyebrows may last up to 2 years and it requires an annual touch up every year to retain the shape and colour.
