Permanent Makeup V’s Microblading, how do they differ?
Achieving The Perfect Brow Shape
Waking up with perfectly shaped eyebrows is a dream of most women and there are two methods in which this can be achieved in the permanent makeup industry. One method is called Cosmetic tattooing and and the second is called microblading.
Although the outcome of the two methods are similar, they are both used to provide clients with lasting results in replacement of applying conventional makeup to eyebrows, eyelids and lips each day, the way in which the treatments are carried out are subtlely different.
So what is the difference?
Permanent Makeup also known as micro pigmentation, derma pigmentation or permanent cosmetics can be used to create perfectly shaped brows, from a dramatic blocked brow, to a softer powdered brow, individual hair strokes, or a mixture of both.
Permanent Eyeliner can also be applied to give the appearance of thicker, fuller lashes and a more alert look.
Clients can choose from a permanent lip liner to give symmetry and replace or enhance the vermilion border, or a natural permanent lip blush to replace loss of colour due to the ageing process. Full permanent lip colour gives an illusion of thicker fuller lips.
A cosmetic tattoo digital rotary machine is used. This is similar to a conventional tattoo machine but works on a much gentler rotation. The machine pushes the pigment into layers of the skin. Disposable, pre-sterilised needles are used for each client. Pigment is implanted into the skin using very fine needles, the process takes around an hour and should be relatively pain free, although clients will feel a sensation whilst the treatment is being carried out.
Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery is a different technique. Although people think Microblading is a new trend, it has, in fact been around for many thousands of years, with the instruments used dramatically changing over the years, from prehistoric sharpened stones to the modern day hand tools.
The hand tool which is used has micro needles at the end, again these are pre-sterilised and fully disposable. The hair strokes achieved can be micro fine. The technician meticulously draws each hair stroke onto the eyebrow following the natural direction of natural hair growth.
The pigment sits superficially in the skin, therefore the strokes are sharper and crisper. Micoblading can be slightly more painful than the machine method, clients experience a scratching sensation. Because the pigment is not implanted as deeply into the skin the effect will not last as long.
