There is a difference between Microblading and Tattoo of the eyebrows.
The difference between Microblading and tattoos is that eyebrow tattooing is a permanent procedure, microblading is not.
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that can last anywhere between one to three years.
Unlike tattooing, microblading allows you to change the shape and style of your brows as often as you like.
To get Microblading done you have to be at least 18 years of age or older.
Microblading cannot be done on people under 18 years of age or on minors.
People with very oily skin are ineligible for microblading.
Powder brows are recommended for this skin type.
Those with less oily or combination skin, may consider a combination of microblading and powder effect, known as combo brows.
How does microblading look after 5 years?
Your brow shape is fine and pigments didn't migrate out of the initial outline, but the color of microblading after 5 years has turned either reddish/orangey or gray/bluish.
If your brows are not too saturated, this can be fixed with a microblading color correction.
Microblading can last anywhere from 18 to 30 months. In general, it requires touch-ups once or twice a year.
Once pigment from the procedure begins to noticeably fade, you'll need to go back to your practitioner for a touch-up application.
If you are happy with your microblading results, then you'll probably want to make sure your brows look as full as possible for as long as possible.
Microblading is expensive: most sessions cost between $400.00 to $1,400.00, depending on whether it's your first application or a touch-up.
Microblading is a cosmetic procedure that inserts pigment under your skin using a needle to give you well-defined, natural looking eyebrows.
Generally, results can last from 18 to 30 months depending on your skin type, lifestyle, and how often you get touch-ups.
Although the procedure can take upward of 2 hours, most people report only feeling minor pressure or discomfort and less pain than a typical tattoo due to the use of a numbing cream.
Of course, this will depend on your own personal tolerance to pain.
Some level of pain or discomfort should be expected.
The CONS of Microblading
Apart from being an expensive method, makeup removal is quite painful and can lead to scarification.
Also, in many cases, allergic skin reactions are a possibility; it is the microblading side effects.
The numbing cream and the ink used might not be favorable to all skin types.
