Bold, natural looking brows are possible. Microblading makes it real.
Microblading literally means micro cuts. A name of this procedure well reflects on a process – it is done with a fine blade, that opens skin in order to insert micro doses of pigment. Pigment is applied as a mask overtop of skin cuts. When skin heals, healing happens over that pigment and results should look like fine brow hairs.
Microblading (aka 6D, 3D, HD, feather brows) is a technique invented in Asia. Hence, it works best on people coming from that geographic zone. My practical experience confirms this. Microbladed strokes heal on oriental skin in extremely fine manner. ⠀
What does this mean for Caucasian clients? It means that procedure still could be done, but with a consideration of skin specifics. European skin is more quaggy, vascular and often with weak connective tissue. Artist who performs a procedure should have a microblading experience (many hours of latex practice) and a very calm hand in order to execute cuts on the same depth. It is very important not to go dipper than 1.5mm. If pigment was inserted too shallow – work will be gone in 26-28 days, due to exfoliation process in skin; if, in turn, too deep – strokes will heal very thick and likely bluish, skin will get damaged to the point of keloid scars.
Stretching technique is another very important component of successful microblading procedure on European skin. Ideally performed microblading should heal like fine strokes, evenly filled. With time it should become lighter and lighter till ink will completely leave skin. It should be no sighs of skin indentations or scars.
