Microblading is a tattooing technique in which a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin. Microblading differs from standard eyebrow tattooing because each hairstroke is created by hand using a blade which creates fine slices in the skin, whereas eyebrow tattoos are done with a machine and single needle.
Microblading is typically used on eyebrows to create, enhance or reshape their appearance in terms of both shape and color. It deposits pigment into the upper region of the dermis, so it fades more rapidly than traditional tattooing techniques, which deposit pigment deeper. Microblading artists are not necessarily tattoo artists, and vice versa, because the techniques require different training.
The Microblading procedure is a semi-permanent tattoo. Like all tattoos, microblading can fade, depending on multiple factors (quality of pigment/ink used, UV exposure, elements found in skincare products, medications, etc) The treatment lasts from one to two years. A touch-up session is encouraged 6 months after the first Microblading procedure.)
Safety precautions for Microblading are similar to those for any other tattooing technique. The most common complications and client dissatisfaction that results from any form of tattooing is misapplication of the pigment, pigment migration, colour change and in some cases, unintended hyperpigmentation.
