Microblading & Powder Brows
Microblading and Powder Brows are semi-permanent eyebrow treatment cosmetic tattoos. The main difference between the two is the method in which the artist applies the pigment to the skin. Microblading is done by hand with a tool resembling a pen to create hair-like strokes, whereas Powder Brows uses an ultra-fine needle mounted on a special machine that applies the pigment through repetitive dotting.
Microblading is a kind of semi-permanent make-up that gives an ultra-realistic effect. It's a popular technique that involves introducing the pigment directly under the skin in order to create a long-lasting eyebrow design. This should only be performed by a Microblading artist using a high-quality Microblading pen with disposable needles.
Powder Brows treatment is the introduction of biocompatible pigments in the superficial layer of skin using an ultra-fine needle, mounted on a special machine to achieve a smokey or shadowy effect, unlike Microblading which is a manual technique. It is recommended for people with an oily or sensitive skin type. It generally consists of two sessions scheduled 30 days apart.
Who can get a cosmetic tattoo?
While both Microblading and Powder Brows are great choices for anyone looking to enhance the look of their eyebrows, giving a fuller and more defined appearance in the shape they've always wanted while keeping them looking natural, there are a few restrictions. They cannot be performed if you are pregnant or suffer from keloids. The artist will also require a list of all allergies and medications to ensure that there will not be any adverse reactions to the treatment.
What happens at a Microblading session?
After establishing the desired shape, color, and intensity together with the client, the Microblading artist identifies the color most similar to those of natural eyebrows. Using a tool similar to a pen, the artist makes a series of micro-incisions with the help of a very fine, disposable needle, in order to "draw" the missing hairs, giving shape, color, and volume to the eyebrows.
How long do cosmetic tattoos last?
Given that they are semi-permanent treatments, they can have a variable duration depending on the type of skin and the daily management of one's face. In every case, they are a form of semi-permanent makeup that will slowly fade over time until total disappearance. On normal or dry skin, the duration will be one year or more. On oily skin, the duration may be less than 1 year.
After treatment for normal or dry skin; apply a thin layer of cream twice a day for 3 days. For oily skin; apply a thin layer of cream twice for 1 day only. The cream will be provided by the artist.
Over the next 2 weeks:
- do not use makeup on your eyebrows
- do not put foundation on the eyebrows
- avoid putting other creams on the eyebrows
- avoid using a sauna, face massages, swimming pools, heavy sweating, solariums, and laser peeling
- avoid washing the area with water that is too hot
- avoid direct sunbathing
Immediately after the treatment is performed the color will be dark but the pigment will fade by 30% after healing. Do not peel off the cuticles that form during healing. Fast fading of the eyebrows can occur if antibiotics or hormone therapies are used.
