The Microblade method:
Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattoo/permanent make up (PMU). The term ‘microblading’ refers to the tool that is used – a pen like, hand held device with a number of tiny needles positioned together to form a ‘blade’. No machine is used for this this method. With the microblade both individual hairstrokes and shading of the brows can be achieved (often a combination of both gives a natural looking brow). Please note that microblading is not suitable for all skin types – results are best on normal skin. Oily/porous/mature skin is usually more suited to the machine shading method.
The Machine method:
The The machine method is used for shading of the brows. It is performed more like a traditional tattoo, using a machine with a vibrating needle(s). It is actually a more gentle method of PMU and good for delicate/mature skin. It is also a better option for oily skin. By using the machine shading method different looks can be achieved – soft and powdery, bold and defined or an ombre effect (lighter at the fronts and darker towards the ends).
Both methods are types of permanent make up (PMU). However results do fade over time and this depends on each individual’s skin and lifestyle factors. Top ups are required every 9-18 months to keep the colour fresh.
Results are always dependent on each individual’s skin, lifestyle factors and following the correct after care.
In most cases a 6 week top up after the initial treatment is required to ensure the best possible results. This is included in the price of the initial treatment.
