Microblading uses permanent pigments to draw hair-like strokes into the skin. Microblading or “Hairstrokes” has been around for awhile and recently has gained much popularity. It is considered more “permanent” compared to the traditional hairstroke technique. It is done using a fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no “saturation” under the skin. It is an alternative to the softap eyebrow tattooing which is a softer yet solid brow. The pigment is much more superficial than a traditional tattoo, which means that it will fade as your skin naturally sheds.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply are not happy with their eyebrows.
The pigments used have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present my goal is to help blend them perfectly. The results are a natural and fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment. A necessary 4-6 week touch-up will require fine tuning with microblading and color adjustments if needed.
Microblading is permanent but will begin to slowly fade after 12-18 months depending on each individual. In order to keep a “full” brow look, a touch up is recommended yearly to retain the shape and saturation of pigment. More frequent touch ups may be required if the post treatment care instructions are not properly followed. Also depending on once lifestyle, skin type and products that are used on the face.
