There are two different methods for semi permanent makeup – Microblading and Micropigmentation. People often get confused with the two and think that all hair stroke eyebrows are created with Microblading. This is untrue, both Microblading and Micropigmentation can be used to create either hair stroke brows or powder (filled in) brows. The difference between the two techniques is the device that is used. Microblading is done using a hand tool where as Micropigmentation is the machine method. The results however can differ and depending on your skin type and desired result, one method is often more suitable than the other.
Unlike many semi permanent makeup artists, Sarah is trained and qualified in both techniques so can make the correct recommendation for your desired look and skin type to give you the best results. In some instances, a combination of the two techniques may be used.
What is Microblading?
Microblading creates fine hair strokes in the skin using a handheld tool with several tiny needles to implant pigment into the skin. These hair strokes give a very natural and realistic look, blending with your own brow hair.
Microblading can be used to completely redesign the brows or to simply fill in any sparse areas of hair.
Topical anaesthetic is used prior to treatment to ensure a comfortable experience.
Benefits of Microblading
Microblading will often give clients the most realistic look creating fine, crisp hair strokes but with the definition we all want.
Your brows will be perfectly shaped everyday, meaning less time spent on makeup routines. They will not smudge or wear off during the day, which is ideal for people who lead active lifestyles.
Results are long lasting, so unlike other popular treatments such as tinting or HD Brows, there is no monthly upkeep, regular salon visits become a thing of the past.
If you have lost your eyebrows due to hair loss conditions such as alopecia or chemotherapy, this is a great way to give you back natural looking brows.
How long does it last?
It is recommended you have an annual top up appointment to keep your brows looking fresh. This is half the cost of the original treatment.
