what is Microblading?

While it might sound intimidating, microblade is quite simple. Also known as eyebrow feathering, hair stroke eyebrow tattooing, or cosmetic eyebrow tattooing, it’s a type of temporary makeup that creates hair-like strokes on your skin. Technically it’s a tattoo, but a detailed, temporal one. Using this technique, brow artists can achieve incredibly realistic looking results, filling out your brows and leaving them natural looking and perfect. Cosmetic tattooing enhances eyebrows, fills out thin eyebrows, and even reshapes your brows with natural-looking results. 

The term microblading definition comes from the way it’s done. Your eyebrow artist will use a maniple, a pen-like tool, to draw in each hair stroke. It scratches the skin like a tiny blade, leaving space for the ink pigment to set in and create that temporary result.

Imitation hair tattoo has been for years and is a trendy and well-known technique. There are some microblade horror stories out there, but with improved technique and technology in recent years, the chances of getting bad results with microbladed brows are meagre. Just make sure you choose an experienced stylist with a good reputation, and you won’t be disappointed!

How Does Microblading Work?

Microneedling hair-like strokes is the easiest way to get incredible looking beauty eyebrows with almost zero effort. The process allows brow artists to precisely replicate the direction and style of your natural eyebrow hairs with ink pigment, achieving a natural-looking result. 

At Face Figurati, our artists use a multiple-needle maniple pen technique. It helps us create large and delicate strokes, achieving a realistic-looking balance of different “brow hairs”. Depending on your preferences, we can make your brows look thick and full, light and expressive, or fill them out to make them look natural.

There is a wide range of reasons clients come to us for micro blade. These include correcting blemishes in certain areas of the eyebrows, cleaning up the shape of their brows, or a complete and radical brow transformation. It’s important to remember that microblading for eyebrows looks different for everyone. A style you see in a magazine may not look good with your style, and vice versa. An experienced brow stylist can take a style you like and apply it to your features to get your eye the sufficiently possible result.

How Does Microblading Work?

Preparation for tattoing

Most importantly, you must be in perfect health during the session. Exacerbation of chronic pathologies, fever, viral infections and inflammations are reasons to postpone the treatment to another day.
Consult with a professional the day before, who will help you choose the colour and shape of your future eyebrows. 
Afterwards, avoid alcohol, antibiotics, blood thinners and caffeine-containing products before microblading.

What does the procedure look like?

The session is a step-by-step execution.

Stage 1. Master's consultation

The master advises the client on any issues. Girls are often interested in photos of works made by the master, looking at the portfolio, asking questions about pain, effect and result.

Stage 2. Sketch

A sketch drew using a special pencil. A shape created, hairs removed, volume, density is taken into account – all the factors that affect the final result. The sketch is discussed in detail and corrected. The client should be delighted with everything, so the work carried out as much as necessary. At the same stage, the colour of the pigment selected based on a woman’s personal preferences and her type: skin colour, eyes, hair. After a careful selection, a finishing sketch formed – the one that will recreate with the help of tattoo.

Stage 3. Pain relief

Although micro blade not consider a very traumatic technique, pain relievers used to reduce discomfort. It applied around the brow for a numbing effect that minimizes any sensations. The frequency of anesthetic application varies from studio to studio. In ours, for example, anaesthesia is applied twice – before and during the treatment. This approach allows you to minimize discomfort as much as possible.

Step 4. Performing

After the anesthetic has worked, the master proceeds to perform the method. He neatly displays each hair, following the contours of the sketch. Once the circuit’s primary strands have drawn, anaesthesia is applied a second time to reduce pain.

Stage 5. Repeated consultation

At the end of the tattoo-treatment, the master conducts a consultation regarding the care after microblading. An anti-inflammatory disinfectant is also applied. As a rule, the master immediately recommends signing up for a correction a month after the first time.

The steps for performing micro blading are no different from those for other techniques. The only difference is in the execution of the method itself. Duration about 2 hours. At first, the brows will be very dark and rich. But as the skin heals, the pigment will lighten, acquiring a natural and natural shade.

Does eyebrow microblading hurt?

The style can hardly be called less traumatic or painless. Even though only the skin’s surface is cut with the blade, the total area of injury is quite large. Therefore, micro blade should only be performed after the application of the anesthetic. In this regard, this method is not recommended for pregnant women and women during lactation. When using an anesthetic gel, almost all discomfort is reduced to zero.

Is Microblading Eyebrow Tattoo Right for Me?

eyebrows microblading

Unfortunately, many new cosmetic tattoo artists claim that brows tattoos using the micro-blading technique is simple and suitable for everyone, without exception. The truth is everyone is different, so if you meet a brow stylist that claims they can achieve a specific result without understanding their client’s brows, you should probably look elsewhere. 

For example, certain types of oily skin can dramatically reduce the effects of microblading, or ruin the look completely. The treatment will not last as long on oily skin, and in some cases can result in blurry, messy brows. Even if they look great on the day they’re done. It’s reasons like this we recommend all our clients get a checkup a few weeks after their initial appointment, to make sure they’re completely happy with the results.

While micro blading is largely effortless, getting the, longest-lasting results will still require a bit of work. Taking care of your eyebrows after getting feathering is incredibly important and will make sure your results last for as long as possible. Your artist will tell you how to take care of your brows and give you any information you need to know.

How Much Does Microblading Cost?

The cost of microblade cosmetic brow tattooing is determined by the artist’s skill, the location of the work, and the technique used. General brow shading, for example, is less expensive than a hair shading method.

When shading, the artist paints the outline of the brow, marking the eyebrow shape in the way you’ve chosen. With hair shading, your brow stylist will draw each individual hair into your brow, which not only takes more time but a steady and skilled stylist. This achieves a far more natural brow look, one that will last longer and look better overall. For this reason, hair shading eyebrow tattoos will cost a little more, regardless of where you get your eyebrows done.

How Long Does Microblading Last?

how long does microblading last?

Tatooing will last much longer than makeup but isn’t completely steady and will fade over time. While it’s technically a tattoo, the marks are made very shallow, sitting just under the skin. 

Most of the time, the results from hair tattooing will last between 8 months and 2 years, depending on the skill of the artist and the type of skin you have. Over this time, the pigment will gradually fade, meaning you will have to have your permanent micro blading redone. However, getting it redone before it fades completely is faster (and cheaper!!) as your stylist can trace their original work. 

The colour doesn’t change over time, so at no point will it look unnatural. However, your brows may start to look thinner, eventually returning to how they looked initially.

 

Factors Affecting the Duration Of brow Microblading

There are a number of factors that can affect how long brow lasts, such as age, skin type, and skincare. Here are 4 of the most important factors.

 

Skin Type

If you have thick, oily or overly sensitive skin, this can reduce the duration of the result. Thick skin can absorb more pigment than thin skin, and oily skin releases pigments faster than other types. Consult with your eyebrow stylist to get the results.

Age

As a rule, the younger you are, the faster the eyebrow tattoo pigment disappears, because skin cells renew faster when you are young. As a rule, in our experience, women over the age of 35 have longer lasting results, but not by much.

Skin Care

After the first treatment, your eyebrows should be carefully cared for for three weeks. Keep the brow area clean and moisturized so that the pigment stays in place! Don’t forget to use sunscreen when you go outdoors, because sun exposure can also cause fading.

Touch ups

We recommend renewing them from time to time so that the results last as long as possible. This usually happens once a year or so, but your eyebrow specialist will give you more information and recommendations.

How Can I Make My Microblading Last Longer?

As long as you follow the recommendations of our expert brow artists, your tattoo will last as long as possible. Here are our top tips for increasing the life of brows tattooing:

  1. Keep in mind to take proper care of your eyebrows during the healing period. This means no scrubbing them and washing your face with water only. Remove all of your makeup before cleansing, and rub your eyebrows carefully if you need to cleanse. 

  2. The first week after the tattooing, do not go to saunas and baths. Hot, humid air can cause dyes to loosen quickly. It would be best to allow the pigments to take hold of the skin. 
  3. Don’t go overboard with sunbathing or tanning beds.
  4. Don’t get cosmetic surgery on the microbladed eyebrows area. It means no lifts or botox.

How Do I Know My brows Will Look Good?

When it comes down to it, there’s always a risk of microblading not looking as good as you want it to. However, if you make sure you choose a skilled and highly rated stylist, you basically can’t go wrong. 

The skill of your stylist plays a huge part in how the final result will look. Drawing individual natural hair strokes is painstaking work, requiring a steady hand and a keen eye for detail. At first glance, you might think placing each stroke in the right place is all it comes down to, but there is a lot in the planning as well. Choosing the right colour is incredibly important, as the wrong colour can change the look of your whole face. Additionally, each and every hair strokes needs to have the right thickness and length, pointing in the right direction, and need to be the right distance from each other, or you risk making the whole brow look strange. 

When you first come in, your microblading brow stylist will plan out the process, working out what kind of brows will pleasingly fit your face shape, the colour of your hair, the thickness and shape of your natural eyebrows, your skin tone and anything else that could affect how the end result will look. This way, they can ensure you’ll get the result you’re looking for. 

The end result is a work of art, something  you need to be proud of when you look in the mirror each morning. It’s also why we refer to our stylists as artists!

Any eyebrow feathering and cosmetic tattoo artist who claims to be good at what they do should be able to do this. If you go to a stylist and they don’t take the time to work out what you’re looking for, or can’t give a professional opinion on why they’ve chosen a specific style for you, it might be time to find a new cosmetic brow tattooing stylist…

At Face Figurati we have a secret technique we use to achieve the satisfactorily possible results. While many stylists will use the same colour or pigment across your entire brow, our artists will combine 2, 3 or even 4 shades of pigment to give your brows a completely natural look. Your eyebrows will look more full and more natural than you ever thought was possible. 

What Microblading Pigments Do We Use?​

In Melbourne salon Face Figurati we use only high-quality products from leading brands, including Permablend, Lik Super Nude eyebrows, Lik Colorful eyebrow, IColor. All dyes we use are hypoallergenic, meaning there’s a low risk of having an allergic reaction, and each is certified for use in Australia. 

As for the colour, your artist will choose the colours for your brows personally. They look at a range of factors, such as the type and colour of your skin, your hair, and the natural colour of your eyebrows. And of course, if you have a particular style you’re looking for, our brow artist can help you achieve it.

When Can I Wash My Eyebrows After Microblading?

Everyone who considers getting brow tattooing is concerned about this topic. The requirement to not get your eyebrows wet is definitely one of the biggest challenges our clients face during the recovery period.

When you get your eyebrows tattooed, there is a crust that forms on the skin. It’s this crust that keeps the pigment in the skin, helping it sink in and give you the results it’s supposed to. Washing it away will wash the pigment away with it, and all the money you spent on microblading. Of course, this crust can be damaged by rubbing it or putting on clothes, but the main danger is moisture. 

How Long Does It Take for Your Microbladed Brows to Heal?

Usually, the microblading healing process will take 1 to 2 weeks, depending on how fast you heal naturally and your skin type. During this time, it’s really important that you don’t get your eyebrows wet! Make sure to keep an eye on the area throughout this time. 

After the redness from the initial feathering session has gone down, the crust will begin to form. This generally happens after a few days, and after 7-10 days they will start to peel off. Don’t panic! This is normal and just means your body is healing. Once this is over, the process is complete and you’ll be free to take showers, hit the beach, jump in the pool, whatever you feel like!

Can I remove cosmetic eyebrow tattooing if I don't like it?

If you find you really don’t like the results of micro blading, the good news is it is reversible. The bad news is that it can take some time. All micro-blading is constant, sense it will revert back to your original eyebrows in time. If you’re not a fan of waiting that long, many studios offer tattoo removal services, where they will be able to accelerate the fading process or remove the cosmetic tattooing entirely. 

One method for removing tattoo is “acid” Remover. It will accelerate the fading process, however, it also has its drawbacks. 

The healing process will take up to 1-1.5 months, and the removal process is not quite suitable for everyone. But it is the cheapest and the way to remove tattoo.

Your other option is to overlap the old tattoo with a new one. This is the method we recommend for most of our clients that come in looking to remove bad micro-blading. Because fixing is more difficult than applying it, it can cost more than the original cosmetic tattoo. However, we are usually able to fix it and get things looking good again. 

When it comes down to it, our artists will assess your situation and tell you which method is fit for you. Book an appointment today to get your brows tattooed, or call us now to talk to one of our stylists in Melbourne.

FAQ

Microblading eyebrows (“micro” – small, “blade” – blade) is manual tattooing that creates an imitation of hairs on the skin. The master makes it by hand, not with a typewriter. The tattooing performs with nano-needles: the master hammers the pigment under the skin in the eyebrow area to a depth of 0.2 mm. The result lasts for 1 to 1,5 years. It gives a natural shape to the eyebrows and gives the effect of visibility to almost every hair. And it’s an excellent way to take away the hassle of daily eyebrow makeup using your usual tools – eyebrow pencils and eyeliners. 

The only way to get fade of microblading is using a unique Reverse Remover Tattoo that helps to rid the tattoo of this technique.
Huge advice, in any case, do not try to get rid of tattooing at home. As we described in our article, we advise you to contact our studio and get a free consultation and help from our leading experts.

There are three main ways to remove microblading: use neodymium laser removalacid remover “Reverse”, or apply the new tattoo.

NEODYMIUM LASER REMOVAL

One of the ways to remove microblading is with a special neodymium laser. The most painless, simple tattoo removal. However, the method is not always effective since the laser can’t remove shades like pink, lilac, light blue, and purple.

Neodymium Laser remover is far from the most suitable solution. The laser procedure can be from 5 to 15 times, with the price each time 200 AUD. Moreover, you still will not get the expected result. Most of the time laser is not able to remove colour tattooing and old pigments.

ACID REMOVER “REVERSE”

The second method is acid “Remover”. It’s the most useful method for removing microblading. However, it also has its drawbacks point. 

The healing process will take up to 1-1,5 months, and the removal stage is not quite suitable for all girls. But it is the cheapest and the best way to remove tattoos.

Overlapping the old tattoo with a new one In most cases, Face Figurati studio recommend covering the old tattoos with applying a new one. However, the master should have an excellent background, which will cast more than the regular price. It is impossible to say which method is suitable for you. In conclusion, always have a consultation to look for the finest solution point.
