Everyone is asking for Microblading. Some clients ask for this treatment without knowing truly what it is and other clients have carried out research and know this is the effect they want for their brows. Why so popular? Is this new? What are the results compared to the current more traditional method of digital permanent makeup? Let’s look at some of the facts for those wishing to have the treatment or train in this..

What is it?

Although Microblading is a very old technique it is now one of the hottest tattooing techniques in the UK and abroad. It has many names including Eyebrow Embroidery, Feathering and more.

The method uses a hand instrument with disposable needles to create a feathering hair technique. The micro needles implant delicate crisp eyebrow hair strokes using a medical grade EU approved pigments colour to suit the client. Only the best quality pigments should be used on clients to achieve the great results and retention. The end result is soft, flawless and natural beautiful brows. The majority of clients say that they love Microblading as it enhances their natural features and overall appearance without the brows dominating the face. The results can last up to 1 year and its recommended a yearly ‘refresh’ boost around 12-18 months.

The whole process of Microblading takes about an hour and the client will return around 6-8 weeks for a perfecting boost to implant more colour and perfect the eyebrow shape if needed but not always necessary.

What is the difference between Digital method and Microblading?

Essentially any tool that implants colour into the skin is a tattoo or known as permanent makeup. The current digital method utilises a machine with a hand piece that implants pigment using safe disposable needles into the skin. The needle moves up and down and pushes the pigment into the Dermis of the skin. Again using pigments not inks. It offers power and works well particularly on difficult skin like oily or weathered. It is an all rounder tool that can be used for hair stroke brows and powdered, eyes and lips.

Microblading uses a new disposable hand tool or reusable (only with autoclave) with a new disposable needle inserted in the end of the hand piece. There is now electric or digital method to action the implantation. The technique is all in the artists skill to know where in the dermis to implant the pigment and to create a crisp authentic hair stroke. There is no doubt with the right needle and technique beautiful simple crisp looking hair strokes can be created using this method. The end result is soft, flawless and natural beautiful brows.
