What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a type of tattooing technique in which a small handheld tool is used to apply pigment to the skin. The tool creates fine, hair-like strokes to mimic the natural look of eyebrows. This technique is also known as eyebrow embroidery or feathering. It is a semi-permanent procedure that can last up to two years before the pigment begins to fade. Microblading is often used to improve the appearance of thin or uneven eyebrows, and can also be used to cover up scars or gaps in the brows.

What are the Advantages of Microblading?

The main advantage of microblading is that it can create very natural-looking eyebrows. The fine, hair-like strokes that are created with the microblading tool can mimic the look of real eyebrows, and the pigment used can be matched to the color of the person’s natural eyebrows. This means that the resulting eyebrows can be very subtle and realistic.



How Long Does Microblading Procedure Take?


The typical length of the application process is 2-3 hours. Prior to the appointment, a consultation is required to assess your skin type and medical conditions to determine if you are eligible for the treatment. This consultation typically takes about 20 minutes. During this time, you will also receive instructions on how to prepare for the appointment.



How long will Microblading Last? 

Although microblading is a form of a tattoo, it is not permanent and will fade over time. On average, it is will fade within 2-3 years depending on skin type, lifestyle, skincare routine, etc.


What Does Microblading Aftercare Involve?

Microblading aftercare is a very important step in the process. It usually lasts up to 2 weeks. During this healing period, it is important to avoid activities that will cause the brows to get soaking wet, such as swimming, long showers, going to the sauna, etc. However, it is important to wash your eyebrows regularly and carefully, with sterile water and antibacterial soap and to carefully dry them afterward.

Avoid applying makeup or skincare products on the eyebrows, and avoid picking, rubbing, or scratching the area.

Exposure to direct sunlight or tanning beds can cause the pigmentation to fade or change colour, so it is important to avoid these activities during the healing period.

Failure to follow the prescribed aftercare instructions can affect the final results and potentially cause infection. If you have any concerns or questions about your aftercare, contact your artist for guidance.



How Long After Microblading Can I Wear Makeup?

For a minimum of two weeks, you MUST NOT wear makeup on the treated area because it is very delicate and vulnerable to infections during the days following the procedure.



Do I Need To Have A Patch Test

A patch test is a precautionary measure performed to confirm that a person does not have an allergy to the pigments or makeup products that will be used.

If you undergo a patch test for permanent makeup and your skin shows no reactions, that is a good sign and indicates that it is safe for you to proceed with the treatment. However, if you experience any allergic reactions, such as redness, itching, inflammation, irritation, rashes, blisters, or bumps, the test is negative and it is not safe for you to get the cosmetic tattoos.
