What is the difference between Microblading and Feathering?
Microblading is a relatively new, manual method of tattooing. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hair-stroke techniques done with a machine. There is no need to worry about the changing eyebrow trends since its a semi- permanent tattooing. Microblading basically is using a very fine blade to create series of little hair like impressions by depositing pigments into the top layer of the skin called dermis.
What is the procedure?
Upon arrival, you will have the opportunity to discuss your needs and wants and your preferences in terms of your Brows shaping. Our highly qualified cosmetic tattooist will design the perfect brows for each client according to the face structure and also based on her/his desired shape. Also, you will be advised about the different colors that suit your skin tone and hair color. Then the pigment is implanted gently into the top layer of the skin using very tiny needle strokes. The finer the strokes are denser the brows become with lots of tiny hair strokes. It creates full and natural looking brows.
Healing Process and Aftercare
The whole treatment process takes almost 2- 2.5 hours. However, the healing time might take 7- 14 days. During this time it is important that the client follows the instructions carefully. Followings are the points to be followed;
- Itching and flaking will appear the first few days please, do not pick or scratch the dry skin. Picking can cause a scar.
- No water, cleanser or makeup on the treated area until it's completely healed.
- Allow 4 weeks before and after your treatment for any facials or anti wrinkle injections or fillers.
- No swimming, sauna or Jacuzzi for at least 10 days.
- Avoid direct sun and heavy sweating.
Level of pain:
The level of pain mainly depends on persons’ pain threshold. However, even people with low pain tolerance can handle the situation quite well.
How long does Microblading last for and How often I need a touch- up?
It highly depends on clients skin type but generally, it lasts between 6 to 18 months.
it might happen that the client feels the brow color is dark or it is too intense. However, after almost 4-6 weeks from Microblading treatment, the body will absorb the ink and the skin will become completely healed. After the skin recovery, the pigment becomes 30%- 50% lighter due to skin regrowth, body chemistry or even sun exposure. Touch up is an opportunity to correct or change the shape and adjust the color.
