Microblading vs Permanent Makeup
We get this question a lot. What exactly is the difference between microblading and permanent makeup? It’s an understandable and expected question for those interested in microblading. After all, microblading is a fairly new form of semi-permanent makeup that really started to take off in 2015. Both permanent makeup and microblading can benefit those from all walks of life regardless of age and sex. They are especially beneficial to those who are affected by alopecia, cancer (chemotherapy), genetic anomalies, vitiligo, and scars. Anyone that cannot produce brow hair or lack full brow hair is a perfect example. Though microblading and permanent makeup seem like the same thing, they are actually worlds apart. Let’s cover both of them and inform you! Enquiring minds want to know!
Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing also known as micro-pigmentation, derma-pigmentation, tattooing and permanent cosmetics. Permanent makeup artists use tattooing techniques to apply a design that would resemble makeup. Eyeliner, color enhancement of skin on the face, eyelids, lips, and eyebrows are all areas that permanent makeup is traditionally applied. Permanent makeup is virtually the same thing as getting a typical tattoo. A permanent makeup artist will use tattoo machines to implant ink into the dermis, just shy of how deep a regular tattoo will penetrate. Complications with permanent makeup include allergies to pigments, scars, skin cracking/peeling, infection, blistering, granulomas, and keloids. Many permanent makeup artists use regular tattoo ink which can change color over time and have dangerous minerals like cobalt and mercury in them. A well informed and experienced permanent makeup artist will always use safe inks and techniques. With permanent makeup that involves the brows, usually a “powder” like technique is used to make the brows look denser and fuller. The issue with permanent makeup for brows is its inability to create the natural and full look that microblading successfully achieves. In the worst case scenario, unknowing clients will go to a traditional tattoo artist that will outline brows and fill them with color, making a solid eyebrow look that is very unnatural and usually regrettable. These tattoos are usually much more permanent lasting decades.
Microblading is a manual method of implanting pigment in hair-like strokes in the epidermis to create the look of fuller brows. This form of tattooing is the newest trend in Semi-Permanent Makeup. The natural-looking results are achieved with a sharp, hand-held manual blade made up of 7+ micro needles. Instead of outlining and completely filling in the outline of your brows with color, microblading actually allows for the placement of hair like strokes into the skin. Whereas traditional tattooing uses needles on a rotary/coil machine to push ink 7 layers deep into the skin, microblading uses a manual blade and only targets 3 layers of skin. Because the pigment sits so superficially in the skin the strokes are sharp, crisp, and they mimic the look of real hair! Your new brows will last anywhere between 1-3 years predicated on the environmental exposure it receives. Microblading pigments are all organic and will not change color as they lose saturation over time. Thanks to the 1-3 year expected life of the semi-permanent makeup, the client can change the way their brows look as trends change.
