What is microblading?
Microblading is a type of eyebrow architecture. It is all about creating the best shape for each face – a totally bespoke approach for each client.
The process is very precise, thanks to the tool that is used, which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end - needles that don’t penetrate the skin, but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut.
'The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.'
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 color selected is always matched exactly to your own skin & hair color. While Microblading is not permanent, it does last at least 24 months., when the color may start to fade. With a simple 'touch-up' treatment, your eyebrows will look brand new again!
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. This method is also preferred in the re-shaping of the eyebrow and especially effective when there is a significant loss of hair in the area.
