Microblading is a form of tattoo, but semi-permanent in nature. The process includes the insertion of pigments into the basal layers of the skin. For people with thin eyebrows, microblading offers a sense of completeness to the face and it helps to look the eyebrows fuller and healthy. Being a semi-permanent make-up technique, in which the eyebrows are enhanced or reshaped it gives the brows the
The Microblading Process
After numbing the skin with topical anesthetics, the microblading tool with the suitable ink is carefully stroked on your eyebrows to bring out the desired appearance. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and the results will last from 6 months to 2 years depending upon the ink chosen as well as the treated skin type.
Is Microblading Better than Tattooing?
Microblading makes use of a comparatively lower amount of pigment. It offers a more natural and sophisticated look than tattoos and with this the eyebrows look more defined. Using the microblade tool, color pigments are applied as strokes onto the skin to look like hairs. Unlike tattooing, the results are semi-permanent, hence microblading is a safer option in times when eyebrow trends keep on changing.
In addition to this, with microblading, the color doesn’t change over a period where in the case of tattooing this is a risk factor. Also since microblading is a hand drawn procedure, the damage over the skin as a result of the procedure will be minimal as well as the ink will not bleed over time. Microblading ink comes in various colors and textures and as time passes, the overall tone stays more or less the same. When it comes to the tattoo ink, for eyebrow tattoos, they use a specialized pigment , but as the time passes, it fades and leaves a blue-green tint, especially around the edges of the tattoo.
Allergies and Infections
Allergic reactions are very rare during the procedure. Therefore, it is important that the patient is provided with everything regarding the pigments and equipment being used, and their expected effects. Since the process involves the breaking of the skin, the possibilities of infections can occur if the treatment is done in a compromised non-sterilized environment.
There is a certain amount of discomfort associated with this procedure and that redness and bruising may occur. Some people bruise or swell more than others. The swelling typically disappears in 1-5 days.
Things to Remember
- Tanning beds, pools, and certain skincare products can affect the durability of the tattoo.
- Topical retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid must not be used on the treated areas. It will alter the color and cause premature exfoliation of the pigments.
- Implanted pigment can slightly fade over time and the patient is expected to maintain the color with future applications, and a touch-up session.
