It’s amazing how quickly a cosmetic treatment, product, or procedure can become popular on social media. That’s exactly what we’re seeing with Microblading and permanent makeup services. Many individuals still have no idea what Microblading is, but they are begging for it and going to anybody who can do it, including unskilled “artists.”
Although permanent cosmetics and microblading services may appear to be the same thing, they are not. Both are types of cosmetic tattooing, a long-standing procedure that employs pigmentation of the epidermis to achieve makeup-like effects.
What is Microblading?
What is Permanent Makeup?
Permanent cosmetics implants pigment into the skin using a coil, rotary, or digital machine with various needle sizes to enhance facial characteristics, most frequently eyeliners, eyebrows, and lips. Permanent eyeshadow or blush can also be done, however, these aren't particularly frequent treatments.
The artist's choice of machine is purely a matter of taste. The effects of a permanent makeup machine will remain longer than those of microblading. The pigment is deposited to a depth of roughly a dime in the dermal layer of the skin (1.35 mm). It's crucial to know exactly where you're putting the pigment to keep those sharp hair strokes. If you go too shallow, you'll lose pigment; if you go too deep, the color will heal extremely cold (blue/gray). Permanent makeup necessitates a thorough understanding of skin anatomy and color theory on the part of the artist. To produce my delicate natural-looking hair strokes, we utilize a computerized machine with a #1 needle. The beauty of the 3D hair stroke technique is that you can produce such fine hair-like strokes that it's the most hyper-realistic treatment.
