Permanent Eyebrows with Microblading
You may have heard about “Microblading”. It recently began making the headlines — and yes, we offer microblading at our Fort Lauderdale cosmetic tattooing studio. If you want natural looking eyebrows request a consultation to find out what which one or combination of hair strokes or a feathering technique and microblading is right for you.
What is Microblading? Microblading (also called eyebrow embroidery, micro-stroking) is a manual method of cosmetic tattooing. I first began applying makeup in 1995 and was trained with a master artist using the manual method of permanent makeup. Microblading evolved from the hand-tool that implants the pigment verses a machine operated hand tool. Like other permanent makeup techniques Microblading is considered to be semi-permanent.

What the difference between Microblading and Permanent Makeup?
When comparing Microblading to the traditional Permanent Makeup hair stroke technique; know that it is basically the same only Microblading is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis — rendering an extremely fine, natural looking brow enhancement that is nearly undetectable. For those looking for a more defined look, additional methods and multi-color strokes can be used to create a more solid, or soft and powdery effect in the brow. These methods when blended will result in a beautiful custom look.
No matter what you decide to achieve your natural, flawless, fuller looking brow, they will fade significantly over the two-week period following the initial application. This too is true with other forms and applications of tattooed eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips. You will leave the studio with brows twice as dark as you want them (fading 40-60%). It is recommended to have a follow-up application within 90 days.
Microblading touchups (or refresh) for your brows is recommended once a year to retain the shape and saturation of pigment. Permanent makeup application may retain the color better or longer and you may expect to refresh every 1-3 years. Remember, eyebrows are naturally falling out or shedding and being replaced. As we age the re-growth is less and less and therefore you may need a touch up to further enhance your brows for that reason.
As always, I recommend that prior to your application, that all of your questions are answered. Use discretion when choosing a practitioner who is new, or has little experience with permanent makeup application. because they are offering the latest such as “Microblading” may not be wise. Remember your face is “expensive real estate” and correction for Permanent Makeup and Microblading can be costly!
