Microblading

Microblading is a process that may be used to improve or create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of lost hair, to extend the eyebrows, or may be used as a full reconstruction if the brows have little/no hair. Each microblading stroke is applied individually, allowing the tattoo artist/beauty therapist control of the shape, color and density of the completed eyebrows.

Microblading is is a form of permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. The technique of implanting pigment after the creation of fine incisions in the skin dates  may date back thousands of years. However the trend towards using the technique for eyebrows emerged in Asia and was known as feathering or embroidery prior to becoming known as microblading. Dr. Linda Dixon coined the term microstroking, which is used synonymously with microblading.

Microblading is performed by depositing pigment superficially in the upper region of the skin so as to make the pigment last. It is done with the use of a hand tool with attached needles fused together in a curvilinear grouping. The microblade needle groupings may contain needles that are extremely fine in diameter. The needles used come in a variety of diameters so that the thickness of each individual hair stroke can be customized to each client depending on the width of their natural hairs as to make the microblading process look more natural.

The Microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that can be very natural looking. However, over time the strokes will fade depending on the pigment used, the environment and skincare products used and will need to be refreshed.  In order to keep the color crisp, a touch-up service is required up to every 2 years depending on the individual's skin and how well it holds the pigment.

Microblading is performed using aseptic technique, needles are always sterile and used only once. The technician will also disinfect the area of the skin prior to the tattoo service and clinical grade single use associated equipment and consumables (hand piece, skin wipes and saline, micro-brushes, dressing packs etc.) are used.

Procedures are performed by technicians who have completed a comprehensive course of instruction in order to minimize the risk of unwanted outcomes and client dissatisfaction.

How microblading works

The treatment begins with developing the desired shape, then using individual tattoo strokes or 'feathers' in the area to plot the shape and style requested. The color choice is patient specific and is mixed using a natural selection of semi-permanent micropigments to complement hair color and skin tone.

Immediately post treatment, eyebrows will appear darker than expected, but will fade 50% during the healing process over the following 2 weeks. The 2nd application 6 weeks later includes a touch up to ensure micro-pigments are healing properly and responding well.

Microblading, although semi-permanent, lasts between 6 – 18 months if proper aftercare instructions are maintained. The treatment is typically a 2 step application process, the initial appointment includes consultation and initial application, the second appointment is 6 weeks to touch up and ensure longevity of the colors used.
