What is Microblading?
Manual microblading is a process that involves tiny, fine-point needles (instead of a tattoo gun) that make up a small disposable blade and handle (picture a very small tool that looks like a rat-tail comb) to scratch and deposit pigment simultaneously under your skin. The result? Realistic-looking brow hairs that don't wash off.
Is Microblading a Tattoo?
Yes, but also, no. Unlike tattoos that last forever, microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing. For microblading, we use a hand tool that lets us create thinner, more precise, hair like strokes that aren’t as deeply ingrained into the skin (compared to, say, hair like strokes created by a tattoo gun). The pigment also differs from that of a tattoo because (1) it’s only semi-permanent, which means your body eventually ends up metabolizing it so it fades away, and (2) the dye particles are less concentrated in microblading ink than in the ink of a traditional tattoo.
How long does microblading last?
Microblading usually lasts 1-3 years depending on your skin type (oilier skin types tend to fade the fastest), but, clients should go back after four-six weeks for a touch-up and to check-in to make sure they're happy with the end result and touch up what may have faded away. After your touch up, you typically will not need another microblading session until 12-months, depending on your skin.
What skin types are good for Microblading?
Microbalding is typically good for people with normal to dry skin. People with oily or little to know brows should consider Microbalding and shading. Which is a microblading and shading of the brow to give the brow a more full and density look.
What do I need to do for after care?
