WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent make up that is used to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair, with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.
This technique is used to improve or create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of lost hair, to extend the eyebrows or full reconstruction if the brows have little/no hair. Each microblading stroke is applied individually allowing the beauty therapist to control the shape, colour, and density/thickness of the completed eyebrows. The hand tool method differs from the usual ‘permanent makeup’ by the fact that it is a manual procedure. Using a hand tool with the collection of between 8-14 very fine needles side by side, delicate fine strokes are made in the skin in the shape of natural hairs. Your chosen colour of pigment is then deposited into these incisions. This procedure creates very natural results which enhance and perfect your natural brows, creating the perfect shape to frame your eyes/face. It will not replace a heavy pencil look as it is deposited under the skin, not on top of the skin, it will create a beautiful natural result that you can wake up with every morning or can act as a perfect guideline to follow with your pencil or powder if you are wanting a stronger look.
Microblading is a tattoo.
The pigment is deposited into the dermis (the lower or inner layer of the two main layers of cells that make up the skin) Microblading as all other tattoos can fade depending on multiple factors, UV exposure, Use of acids in skin care products, Medication and Skin type. But will never disappear completely.
The trend towards using the technique of feathering emerged in Asia. It was known as embroidery prior to becoming known as microblading.
Biotouch pigments are formulated with iron oxides which are known for being safe for cosmetic use. Because they have more of these particles in every drop, they absorb into the skin much more effectively. The result is less fading and truer colour.
Iron oxide pigments date back decades into the previous century while synthetic pigments are a recent formula of modern science. The reason iron oxide pigments have been around for so long is simply because they work.
