Microblading Facts: Tips, duration, pain and advantages

Microblading refers to shading and symmetrizing eyebrows using an exceptionally fine tattoo pen and ink to shape the eyebrows and beautify the face.
Microblading is performed by trained experts using special tools to draw hair lines. In this method, several fine needles are tapped to add pigments to the skin. There is a difference between needles and the eyebrow standard blades because each hairline is created manually between the eyebrow hairs to appear as normal hairs.
Microblading is a method to create semi-permanent makeup in eyebrows that will seem thick and full after the procedure. The outcome is authentic and pleasing.


Microblading versus Micropigmentation

In eyebrow microblading, a pen to which the blade is attached is used. The blade consists of a row of needles giving it a shape of a comb by the pigment is entered into the skin as hatch lines. Compared to tattooing, the lines are natural and fine in this technique.

Microblading is performed at a higher level of the skin than micropigmentation; thus, it is painless and less durable but finer than micropigmentation. This technique is preferred by those who are seeking a stunning natural look. Tools used in these techniques differ so that a handheld engine-free pen is used for Microblading while a device pen with different needles and a cartridge is used in micropigmentation.
The hatch lines are thin and superficial in Microblading, giving a more natural look than hatches created by Micropigmentation.

Designing eyebrow in microblading

After checking the mentioned issues and the client's health, the desired eyebrow is designed on the face using a pencil, and then the design is modified according to the client's opinion. The best design is close to the natural form of eyebrows and does not affect the face's normal appearance. After confirming the form, the best color is chosen according to the face shape and color and the skin type with the client's cooperation. This technique can make the most beautiful changes and natural in the eyebrows with the least manipulation.


Microblading advantages

Generally, the procedure itself takes about 2 hours but consider an extra hour for numbing before the procedure and extra work if required.
