Permanent Eyebrow Makeup
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that consists of using a hand tool with microfine needles that help create natural-looking scrapes in the client’s brow area creating an appearance of 3D hair strokes on the brow. The tool is dipped in pigment then used on the skin, inserting pigment in the topmost layer of the skin, filling the brows while giving sparse eyebrows a complementary shape. The procedure takes about 2 – 3 hours based on the extent of work required and then depending on the client’s skin type and aftercare, the pigment may fade slowly over 2 - 3 years.
An anesthetic is applied to the brows during the process. Microblading itself is not painful but can be slightly uncomfortable to those who are sensitive. Healing takes around 5 – 12 days, during which the eyebrows will appear to be the lightest tones as the colour is getting absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin, later the skin cells push the colour back to the upper layer and once the healing process has completed the client can enjoy beautiful natural-looking eyebrows.
A touch-up is included and scheduled 6 weeks after the initial treatment to give the brows a crisper look. During eyebrow touch-up, the technician will fill in missing hairs, add or make hairs longer or just achieve a darker colour.
Microshading / Powder Brows / Ombre Brows is a shading technique, it is great for clients who want that soft and natural look. This technique replicates a powder filled brow with no harsh outline or front look. This technique lasts 20% longer then Microbladed Brows, is less invasive and can be suitable from a light to dark shade (getting gradually darker towards the end of the eyebrows).
Combo Brows is a combination of shading and hair-like brow strokes, hence the name ‘combo’. With Combo Brows the client gets hair strokes throughout the brow to create a feathery look of real hair then a soft tap tool or digital permanent makeup machine is used to gently implant pigment to create a smooth and blended shaded look in the eyebrows; giving that soft, powdery makeup finish. With Combo Brows, either shading can be done half way through the brow to the end of the brow; to give a 3D effect or shading can be done through the entire brow. This technique is great for all types of skin and shading tends to last longer than Microblading due to dense pigmented nature of the work done.
