What is Microblading?
There is some confusion amongst the general public, at times, due to the many alternative terms that are used in the industry to describe the very same microblading process: 3D eyebrows, 6D brows, feathering, feather-stroke, feather-touch, eyebrow embroidery, micro-stroking, semi-permanent brows, and Micro-feathering just to name a few.
Microblading takes around 2 hours to perform and includes the application of a topical anesthetic as well as the all important eyebrow design phase. Inherent asymmetries and customization of the perfect eyebrow shape for each client take time and should not be rushed. Price should not be the driving factor in your technician selection process. Instead, you will need to evaluate background education, training, experience and the personal taste of each artist. Technicians will all have their own distinct style and approach to designing the eyebrow and microblading the hair-strokes. Some will mainly draw upward strokes or downward strokes or a combination of the two, whilst others will follow the existing hairs natural growth direction. Some will curve the strokes while others will keep them straight throughout.
Microblading at Ageless Health Institute
At Ageless Health Institute, we take the time to learn what kind of brows you're looking for. Weather it's arched, straight, rounded, thin, thick or whatever fits your style and facial features. We precisely measure out the brows and select a color that's right for you. People who have previously had ‘block’ tattoos may also be able to transition to microblading as their old tattoo fades. Microblading will then add some much needed texture and a 3D effect to the flat looking ‘block’ effect. For further information and advice please consult with your technician.
Semi-permanent microblading is generally considered to last anywhere up to 2 or 3 years. However, the actual duration is impossible to accurately predict as clients’ retention of color varies considerably and is influenced by many environmental factors.
Periodic retouches to refresh the color are necessary to maintain beautiful looking microbladed eyebrows. You’ll wonder why you didn’t have them done sooner!
