What Is The Difference Between Microblading and Micro Shading?

If you are one of those people who spends a lot of time every morning drawing on your eyebrows, then this may be the best solution for you because the results are having beautiful, very natural looking eyebrows, and it is almost impossible to spot the difference between a natural eyebrow and a microbladed one.

What Is The Difference Between Microblading, Feathering  and Ombre Micro Shading?

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 technique alone is beautiful if you have enough natural eyebrows, and micro feathering 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 into the skin and to create the very popular powder brows look, and this procedure gives the brows a softer, fuller finish instead of the typical hair strokes created with microblading alone. Ombre micro shading is a stippling method to implant tiny dots of pigment into the skin, but a combination of microblading and Ombre shading gives the powder brows an even more beautiful appearance.

Micro shading is a microblading technique that adds another dimension to the brows and gives them more depth, and this technique will make your brows last longer. Because of that benefit, a skilled microblading artist will do a combination of microblading and micro shading to get the most beautiful, long lasting results.

What To Expect

First we do a consultation to discuss your desired eyebrow shape, then we measure your eyebrows by using a measuring tool to make sure your brows are symmetrical, and then we design and draw on the brows, and we make sure that you like the shape of your brows and that the shape suits your face. Then we choose the pigment colour that is the most flattering for your complexion, and we apply topical anesthetic to numb the skin, but you may still feel a bit of microblading pain at the start of the procedure. Because the pigment will fade at least 30% to 50% as the skin heals your brows will look much darker for the first week or two and it will take about four weeks before you see the final true colour.

Because the pigment fades a touch-up 4 to 6 weeks after the initial microblading procedure is very important to perfect the final look.

Microblading Aftercare

It is very important to keep the skin clean and dry for the first five days because your skin needs to heal and you you do not want to wash away the pigment. So it is best for your brows to avoid  swimming, and sweating, and workouts. And be aware that your skin will scab a bit, so it’s important that you do not pick off the scabs, because picking it off can result in damaging your skin and may remove the colour.

Because you want the best results possible, and for your eyebrows to stay, a touch-up should be done four to six weeks after the initial procedure. And as I mentioned earlier, this first touch-up is very important within that specific time frame.

Because 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 and lifestyle so that our brows will stay looking fresh and beautiful or they will eventually fade away and disappear.
