Everything You Need To Know About Microblading

by in Eyebrow Treatments February 27, 2018

Microblading is a type of eyebrow architecture. It is all about creating the best shape for each face, a unique approach for each client.The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with a curved blade with 16-21 little needles at the end, needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut.

The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the upper dermal layer of the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.


Microblading is a natural semi-permanent eyebrow enhancement that can last 6-24 months, but it’s definitely not for everyone. You are not a good candidate for this service if you possess sensitive, red skin or have rosacea, if you currently use Accutane, Retin-A or Retinols in skincare on eyebrows, antibiotics, or any drug thinning medications. Other contraindications may apply.

How Is Microblading Different Then Getting Your Eyebrows Tattooed?

The hair strokes are far more natural and finer than any tattoo, as a handheld needle is used, there is no electrical gadget that permeates deep in this technique. There more of a scratching noise, rather than a buzz of a tattoo machine, which inserts pigment deeper into the dermal layer of the skin.

I would highly recommend Lasting Beauty Cosmetics to anyone I know looking to get permanent makeup. Tammy was very nice and professional, her salon is also very comfortable, and clean. I had a great experience and am very happy with my services.

It’s a two-hour appointment, which consists of measuring, drawing ideal brow shape, choosing a perfect pigment color, taking pictures and using a lidocaine cream. A special tool with tiny needles is used to scratch a medical grade pigment into the skin using either a stroking or shading method (or a combination of both).

For best results alcohol, caffeine, energy or supplemental health shakes, vitamin e, niacin, ibuprofen, and fish oil need to be avoided for 24 hours prior to your appointment. The next 7-10 days after the procedure, your brows will look very dark, and will be high maintenance! You can’t let them get wet, sweat, be in the sun, and they will need to be kept clean and moisturized during healing.

Everyone is different and results may vary depending on skin type. They may heal and fade unevenly, therefore a touchup is suggested.
