MICROBLADING PERMANENT BROWS

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique used to create the illusion of fuller brows, using a super-fine pen (technically, a bundle of 12 to 15 needles) to deposit pigment into skin. The tip is so fine, in fact, that it can create hair strokes that look legit. And the needles reach only into the superficial layers of the skin, which is what makes the method semi-permanent (versus permanent, like traditional cosmetic tattoos).

How is microblading eyebrows different to having your brows tattooed?

Microblading, unlike tattooing, is not in the deep layer of skin, but more on the surface. The hair strokes are far more natural and finer than any tattoo, as a handheld needle/blade is used – there is no electrical gadget that permeates deep in this technique. There is therefore more of a scratching noise, rather than a buzz of a tattoo gun which pierces the skin so deeply.

Does microblading hurt?

It doesn’t hurt as such, it is more a sensation. The process itself is not painful thanks to the numbing ointment that is applied.

The whole process is very quick – it’s actually the numbing which takes most of the time.

How long does microblading last?

Microblading lasts anything between 12-18 months, but the longevity of the pigment will depend on your skin type.

People with slightly more oily skin will tend to last around the 12 month mark before needing a top up, but those with normal skin can last up to 18 months.

Your brows will eventually fade away if you don’t continue with top ups every 18 months or so. There is no scaring or discolouration with the pigments used, so you wouldn’t know if you left them to fade out.

Skincare after microblading?

  • Avoid getting the area wet for up to 10 days, which includes keeping your face dry during a shower.
  • Don’t wear makeup around your brows
  • Don’t pick, itch or rub your brows
  • Avoid saunas, swimming, and excessive sweating until the area is completely healed and you have a follow-up appointment.
  • Keep your hair away from your brow line.(bangs)
