What is Microblading?
According to Medical News Today, Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that fills in thin eyebrow areas to make them look fuller. Unlike a traditional tattoo, which is permanent, the coloring from microblading may last for up to 3 years. This is because microblading uses different tools and a smaller amount of pigment.
An esthetician uses a microblade tool to apply color pigments that look like real hairs. The color effect will fade over time, so touch-ups may be necessary to maintain the desired look.
Microblading is said to offer natural looking and defined eyebrows, but the process typically takes some time to perfect.
The initial procedure may take up to a couple of hours, and the eyebrows will appear darker immediately after the initial treatment.
It is possible that the color will fade after a few weeks and a touch-up may be needed.
