Microblading has recently become one of the most popular eyebrow enhancement techniques around because it is a game-changer for anyone who wants fuller brows without having to go through the daily motions of drawing them on. It is a form of tattooing your eyebrows, but it gives a more natural look and is less invasive, and is semi-permanent.
Pigment is implanted into your skin by using a hand tool with a disposable blade that has several little needles to create little hair-like strokes.
Benefits of Permanent Eyebrow Microblading
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.
Microblading isn’t just for women. At L’Exquisite’s microblading salon we also offer microblading for men!
Is Microblading Permanent?
I used to do permanent makeup tattooing. I started before it was even popular, so here are some comparisons of the two techniques.
Both techniques need a touch-up four to six weeks after the initial procedure in order to last, and brow blading will last one to three years, and eyebrow tattoos will last around five years or longer depending on your skin and lifestyle, and touch-ups in between may still be needed.
And the new microblading eyebrow tattoo techniques give your brows a much more natural look than tattooed eyebrows which 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 brow blading, 3D brows, feathering, eyebrow embroidery, shading, ombre shading, ombre powder brow, micro shading, semi-permanent brows, or eyebrow tattooing. So lots of choices for pretty much the same thing.
Microblading Eyebrow Shapes
Eyebrows are an important facial feature, and having beautifully defined eyebrows, whether they are bold or more subdued, they give your face a finished look that stays. Because eyebrows are like a facelift especially for people who don’t have nice brows or maybe have no eyebrows, microblading and shading is the answer, but it will take more time to design and perfect that eyebrow shape and look.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Microblading Eyebrows?
Anyone with sparse and uneven or patchy eyebrows, or anyone who draws on brows everyday, and anyone who is not happy with their natural brows, and that goes for a lot of us.
Who is NOT a Good Candidate for Microblading Brows?
People with very oily skin, or people who sweat profusely, and people with chronic conditions and diseases.
