Microblading is a form of tattooing. Unlike a regular tattoo, “microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine, it is semi-permanent tattooing, which uses nine tiny blades (microblades) to deposit pigment under the skin of your eyebrows. It provides definition, enhances fullness and can be used to alter the shape of your brows.
How does microblading actually work?
Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery, as it’s also known) uses a specifically designed tool, which bleeds pigment into the small scratches on the epidermis to create fine lines mimicking strokes of hair. The overall look is natural and realistic.
Prior to using the blades, a technician will draw and fill in your brows to determine your desired look.
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup solution for anyone suffering from thinning or over-plucked brows.
- First, you and your therapist discuss what shape eyebrows you want and pencil this shape on your eyebrow.
- Then any excess hair outside this shape is removed.
- Next, a topical cream is applied to numb the skin.
- Then, using tiny needles, the pigment is inserted into the upper layers of the skin in strokes that resemble hair follicles.
- Once both brows are finished, the excess pigment is wiped away.
If your brows have seen better days, consider letting the experienced microblading therapists bring your eyebrows back to life.
