Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent like the hairstroke technique done by machine. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because the color is closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no “spilling” under the skin if all conditions are met. Some things to consider are: dry skin, oily skin, visible capillaries, medication etc. Not all skin is suitable for Microblading. After three years it is recommended that you switch to machine method as it is less traumatic to the skin.
The difference to ordinary permanent make-up is that Microblading is not done by a machine. The pigments are manually placed into the skin. As with the handle of the machine the Microblading manual pen is equipped with sterile packaged blades (“slope” style, in U-shape or curvy.). The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes a fine cut. The cut is as fine as a paper-cut and you can hardly distinguish it from real hair. The important difference between the machine hair stroke method and the manual Microblading method is pressure.
