We’ve come a long way in semi-permanent makeup since the early days. Today, it’s a much more delicate affair, with much more natural results. In fact, microblading is also rather beautifully known as ‘eyebrow embroidery’.
Our eyebrows are important. They define our look and give our face a frame. It’s little wonder so many of us deem making them perfect, so important.
So, onto the process. I say ‘tattooed’ in inverted commas, because the actual tool used is less tattoo needle, more extremely fine, scalpel-like blade. Which sounds terrifying, but really, it isn’t. We use a numbing cream beforehand, and all you’ll feel is a mild ‘scraping’ or dragging feeling.
The initial result will appear slightly darker than you expected, so don’t be alarmed. Over a week or so, the ‘tattoo’ will form a scab as it heals. Once this falls off (don’t pick it!) the colour will be the perfect shade that you chose. And the final effect isn’t like the ‘coloured in’ eyebrow of yesteryear. Instead expect super-fine lines that have the appearance of actual hairs, in the perfect shape, and colour, for your face and skin tone.
The ink isn’t added as deep below the skin as a traditional tattoo, meaning that it does eventually fade but not for 12-18 months. Which is a good thing, because as we age, our face changes shape, and therefore, so should our eyebrows. You can have them topped up every six months or so.
