A Brief History of Microblading
If you’re into caring for your brows, then you have definitely heard of microblading. Here’s a little bit of background on the technique.
Microblading first found popularity and success in Asia in the 90’s. It’s tough to say when it became a trend in the American beauty scene, but it wasn’t too long before we started seeing the service offered in the states. When it did start being offered, it began being referred to by many different names, with many aestheticians wanting to add their own flare, offering the service as feather tattooing, microstroking, “The Japanese Method,” and so on.
The Evolution of Microblading
Microblading has evolved over time, offering more advanced techniques such as 3D eyebrows, Ombre eyebrow, and more, but the basic technique remains the same. Microblading is performed with a basic hand-held tool, and it introduces pigment into the top/outer layers of the skin. It doesn't penetrate as deep as you would normally get from a traditional tattoo. Because of this, it offers semi-permanent results. In fact, the results should last anywhere from 1 to 3 years depending on your skin type and how you take care of your skin.
Benefits Of Microblading
Through the years, microblading has seen a major increase in popularity, because it’s one of the easiest and most accessible permanent makeup processes there is. Here are a few other benefits clients have come to realize.
1. Pure Convenience
One of the main benefits that can be gained from investing in microblading is having the ability to minimize the amount of time it takes to get ready in the morning. This is perhaps the only way to wake up each day with perfect eyebrows. If you are looking for ultimate convenience when it comes to maintaining your eyebrows, nothing is going to offer as much as microblading.
2. Natural Looking Results.
Unlike other processes or methods, microblading is something that can offer semi-permanent and natural looking results. Because the pigment is not entrenched deep into the lower layers of your skin, it is going to allow for natural fading which can really help your eyebrows look like natural hair strokes. This alone makes microblading a preferred technique because it offers the most natural looking results that you will be able to get when it comes to semi-permanent eyebrow procedures.
3. It Lasts.
Because the technique is meant to be semi-permanent, you shouldn't have to worry about having to get it re-done too often. The results are typically going to last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. This means that you should be able to get away with simple touch-ups which can be very efficient. The total duration you should expect from microblading is ultimately going to depend on several factors including your skin type, the amount of sun you are exposed to, and how you take care of your face.
Overall, microblading has become a popular eyebrow trend for good reason. It is simply one of the best semi-permanent solutions to maintaining the perfect eyebrows. Not only does it offer long-lasting results, but the results look natural. Along with this, the procedure itself is not painful, and the aftercare and maintenance required are virtually non-existent.
