Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure precisely an architecture, that fills in thin eyebrow areas to make them look fuller.
It is all about creating the best shape of brow for each face. The process is very precise, and gives desired result in the hands of experts. The tool that is used is like a pen with the nib having a sloped blade with 12-14 fine needles, that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface. The needles are dipped in a medical grade pigment and the featherlight strokes are made on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.
How is microblading eyebrows different to having your brows tattooed? ‘Microblading, unlike tattooing, is not in the deep layer of skin, but more on the surface. This is also not permanent, and the colour fades in around 6 months. Microblading gives a more natural hair like appearance rather than a patchy tattooed appearance. ‘The hair strokes are far more natural and finer than any tattoo, there is no electrical gadget that penetrates deep in this technique. There is therefore more of a scratching noise, rather than a buzz of a tattoo gun which pierces the skin so deeply.’
