Eyebrows Are Important
Eyebrows really are an important feature for so many reasons, expression, frame for our eyes, etc. Brows are also very much in the spotlight these days, so we are seeing more and more treatments being offered. Yes, this is great news for clients due to having a wider choice, but this can also be equally confusing when selecting the right treatment for you. Lately there has been a lot of press for a treatment called ‘micro blading’ and many of you have been asking what it is and how this compares to micro pigmentation (permanent makeup) and whether this is a better option for you?
Microblading is the technique of implanting pigment using only a manual method. It requires the use of a small blade (costing $10-$25) similar to an Xacto Knife to create fine incisions in the skin, simulating hair and dates back thousands of years. It has recently re-emerged. Microblading takes approx. 2 hours and lasts 6-18 months.
Micropigmentation (Permanet Makeup) is done with a digital machine (costing $2500 – $3500) using disposable needle formations creating fine hair strokes or a fill called shading, or a combination of the two. The color is implanted deeper into the skin, hence lasts longer than Microblading. Permanent Makeup takes approx. 1 hour and lasts 3-5 years.
That is the technical differences between the two, the healing process and time is the same for both. So, here is some other information to consider while deciding. Lately there have been quite a few clients who have spent good money on Microblading (elsewhere) only to come in and ask for me re-do them with my special technique, which is Hybrid (combination) of Microblading and Micropigmentation. The reason they weren’t happy with the Microblading alone is simple. If you have been filling in your brows for a while with a Brow Pencil, or Brow Powder you are used to seeing them filled in, so when they are done with only fine hair strokes using the manual (or archaic as some refer to it) method, they can still look sparse or not quite enough to you, since you still see some space between the hairs and you begin filling them in again. Also, the affordability of the Microblading makes it easy for anyone to start doing. So please ask important questions, look at their work, how many have they done, not just how long? Is it worth a little extra to have them done right and not have to fill them in, in a few months, the Hybrid gives a soft and natural looking Brow that you don’t need to fill in.? However, If you have a scar or just a sparse area or two, then the hair strokes alone may be the solution for you. Either way have a consultation and get the information you need before you do it. I look forward to providing you with the best brows possible for you!
