Microblading, Permanent Make Up, Cosmetic Tattoo...

What are they and are they all the same thing?

Microblading is a popular cosmetic procedure that can enhance the appearance of your eyebrows. This procedure is technically known as micropigmentation, (cosmetic tattoo and permanent make up are also thrown around when referring to this service), and it involves depositing pigment into the skin to create natural-looking eyebrows.

Here is some information about permanent makeup for eyebrows:

What is Permanent make up for the eyebrows?

Micropigmentation for eyebrows is a form of cosmetic tattooing that involves using a needle to deposit ink into the skin. This technique is used to create the appearance of fuller, thicker eyebrows. There are a lot of different techniques involved to create different healed results such as microblading, ombre, powder,  shading, nano, etc. and although they each vary in differences, in the end, they are all the same in what they are.

How does it work?

During the procedure, a technician will use a small needle configuration to deposit color into the skin. Either a pencil like tool is used or a tattoo machine. Although microblading is considered a "tattoo", the design itself should fade slowly as time passes by- meaning a color boost will be required every so often. 

Is it painful?

Most people report feeling some level of discomfort during the procedure (1 or 2 out of a 10 pain scale). However, the discomfort is usually minor and can be managed with a topical numbing cream. (Most of our clients however spend the whole session either talking or sleeping.)

How long is the service?

Service can take anywhere from 1-2 hours give or take on how long the artist takes on shaping the eyebrows, numbing if needed, and then the actual service itself.

How long does the ink last afterwards?

Permanent makeup for eyebrows can last anywhere from one to five years, depending on the individual's skin type and lifestyle. Touch-up appointments are recommended once the color has faded over 80% to maintain the appearance of the eyebrows. 

What are the benefits?

Eyebrow tattoo can save time and hassle in your daily makeup routine. It can also provide a natural-looking solution for people who have lost their eyebrows due to aging, medical conditions, or other reasons.

What are the risks?

As with any cosmetic tattoo procedure, there are risks involved with permanent makeup for eyebrows. These risks include infection(If aftercare was not followed properly), allergic reactions (reaction to pigments, although rare, it is possible), and scarring (from technician going too deep, skin sensitivity, not following aftercare, etc). However, these risks can be minimized by choosing a reputable technician and following proper aftercare instructions.



In conclusion, permanent makeup for eyebrows is a popular cosmetic procedure that can enhance the appearance of your eyebrows. If you're considering this procedure, it's important to do your research and choose a reputable technician who can provide you with the best results.
