Microblading Basics 101

What is Microblading?

For starters, consider Microblading as eyebrow landscaping. The focus is on creating the best shaped eyebrow for your face. The effectiveness of the process depends on the precision. A handheld pen like tool with a dozen needles at the end is used for this technique. These needles don’t pierce the skin, but gently scratch the surface. The needle provides featherweight strokes on the epidermis of the skin.

Microblading eyebrows Vs. Tattooed eyebrows – Key differences

Microblading is done via a handheld tool and several needles. Tattooed eyebrows on the other hand are done with a machine and single needle. Microblading tattoos are semi-permanent while regular tattoos are permanent. Unlike tattooing, Microblading doesn’t penetrate till deep layer of the skin. It is done on the upper layer of dermis.

Procedure and costs

Microblading treatment procedures and costs vary based on where you live. In the United Kingdom, it costs you £500 on average. The consultation, initial treatment plus the top ups may take a couple of months. You need to follow after care instructions in the meantime. It’s crucial to avoid scratching or picking. A slight irritation can be felt when the healing is underway.
