About Microblading and Eyebrow Feathering
What is Microblading?
Microblading is the process of manually tattooing “hairs” onto the eyebrows. The pigments are custom mixed and fill in missing or thin eyebrow hair to give the appearance of thick, beautiful and natural-looking brows. Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing.
Also known as eyebrow feathering, eyebrow embroidery and eyebrow tattoos, the technique of microblading has been around for centuries, but the process of microblading as a cosmetic tattoo for eyebrows is a more recent trend.
Microblading is ideal for anyone who has thin or parse eyebrow hair or nearby scars on their skin they want to hide, and wants the convenience of not having to apply eyebrow makeup on a regular basis.
How Does Microblading Work?
Microblading is a different process than getting a powder brow, it is done without a machine, using only a fine microblade fixed to a pen.
Using this hand tool, the pigments are deposited into the skin in the eyebrow area, adding dimension and creating a desired colour and shape.
Microblading Vs. Tattoos
Microblading is a type of cosmetic tattoo, and the pigments used for cosmetic tattoos are a different composition to soften and be easily adjusted over time as the face changes. Additionally, microblading pigments are implanted in thin strokes, causing the look to fade over time.
Please keep in mind- Falcon Artistry Cosmetic Tattoos in Burnaby does classify microblading as permanent makeup, not semi-permanent, because although the pigments will fade, your skin will not fully return to its pre-tattooed state. So the answer to, “Is microblading permanent?” – is yes.
Does Microblading Hurt?
Although not overly painful, there is a small amount of discomfort with microblading that is natural with any cosmetic-tattoo procedure.
When you’re getting microblading in Burnaby at Falcon Artistry, you will have the option of receiving a topical anesthetic cream on your eyebrows both before and during the procedure to make the discomfort as tolerable and minimal as possible.
