Microblading is performed using a specialized blade with serrations for creating very fine strokes that mimic the natural eyebrow. In this technique, a skin-friendly dye is used, and the dye gets deposited in the dermal layer of the skin.
Pigment Vs Ink
People often confused with microblading with brow tattooing. The major difference between microblading and tattooing is that pigment used in the microblading gives a more natural appearance. While the tattoo ink is used, it gives an unnatural appearance, and when it fades, it gives a blue-green colored tint, especially around the edges of the tattoo, and gives odd eyebrow color. As compared to tattooing, microblading pigment fades into lighter color, and the brow retains a natural appearance.
The naturally looking end results are with microblading as compared to eyebrow tattooing because microblading creates hair-like strokes that are identical to the growth pattern of the eyebrow hair. And it gives the appearance of denser eyebrows compared to ‘draw on’ on the flat appearance of brow tattooing.
Permanent or semi-permanent
Eyebrow tattoos are permanent that fades into odd colors. While the microblading color typically lasts for six months to one year and with simple touch-ups yearly, the results can be maintained. This treatment also gives the flexibility to change.
