What is Microblading?
The best way to describe microblading is that it’s like getting a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo. Colored pigments are introduced to your skin’s upper layers, matching the natural color of your eyebrows. It provides fullness and shape to your eyebrows, making them look naturally darker and more complete. It’s typically used on people who have really light eyebrow hairs and want to make their brows more visible. Or, if you have gaps in your eyebrows, this treatment helps to conceal them and create a firmer eyebrow shape. Unlike other cosmetic treatments, microblading is semi-permanent in that it fades over time. This is because the colored pigments are only imprinted on the upper layer of your skin. Still, it lasts a lot longer than other options and can prevent the need to use makeup on your eyebrows every morning.
How Long Will It Last?
Seeing as this is not a permanent solution, microblading will require regular top-ups. Typically, microblading will last for 12 months before the pigment starts to fade. It can linger for another 6 months before your eyebrows return to their natural state. We use an iron oxide-based pigment that allows the color to slowly and naturally fade with time. This prevents you from going from one stage to the next overnight. There’s a gradual decrease in the color, which gives you plenty of time to come back for a top-up appointment. It’s also worth noting that the results can vary based on your skin type. If you have oily skin, you might see the color fade quicker than someone with dryer skin.
As mentioned earlier, microblading is considered a form of semi-permanent makeup. So, if you’re looking for a permanent solution to your eyebrow problems, this might not be it. Instead, we also offer eyebrow restoration services that provide a longer-lasting procedure. However, this treatment can be more expensive and requires more work.
