Microblading or Semi Permanent Makeup?

Microblading is seen as a very popular method for achieving perfect eyebrows but is it really the best treatment for perfect brows? We are seeing lots of advertisements for Microblading and the term Microblading Semi Permanent Makeup is being used. This is somewhat misleading as Microblading and Semi Permanent Makeup are different processes with vastly different results.

Microblading

Microblading uses a handheld pen-like tool with a “blade” attached to cut the skin beneath the eyebrow and apply pigment. The blade consists of a line of fine needles which are dipped in pigment and drawn along the skin in the shape of a single hair stroke. The technician continues applying individual hair strokes of pigment until the eyebrow has the look of more dense hair. The depth the pigment is implanted is a result of the pressure the technician applies. This is crucial to remember, too little pressure and the pigment will be expelled from the skin over a matter of weeks, too much pressure and the process becomes very painful and there is a high risk of scarring.

Semi Permanent Makeup

Semi Permanent Makeup uses a process called Micropigmentation to implant pigment into the skin. Micropigmentation uses a specialist machine and handpiece with a needle attached. The needle is dipped in the pigment and the micropigmentation machine vibrates the needle to accurately implant the pigment to the skin as a series of minute punch holes. The needle tip is adjustable so the depth of pigment can be controlled and correctly set allowing the pigment to last for 2 to 3 years. This is the main difference between microblading and semi permanent makeup. Microblading relies on the technician’s ability to accurately apply the same pressure to implant the pigment at the correct depth. Semi permanent makeup relies on the skill of the technician to set the needle depth correctly so the pigment implants into the skin correctly.

So which one to choose?

For the question Microblading or Semi Permanent Makeup we recommend micropigmentation and Semi Permanent Makeup. Semi Permanent Makeup is able to implant pigment at the exact and correct depth for the pigment to last in the skin for 2 to 3 years. Microblading is not as exact and relies heavily on the technician to be able to apply the correct level of pressure to each pigment stroke. If performed correctly Microblading can last for a maximum of 6 months.

So for your next eyebrows treatment choose the correct treatment, Microblading or Semi Permanent Makeup. Microblading lasts for 6 months and Semi Permanent Makeup lasts for 2 to 3 years. Don’t be fooled by some offering Microblading semi permanent makeup, this is simply a way to confuse. The best way to check which treatment you are getting is to ask how it is performed. Microblading is performed with a blade scratching the skin and Semi Permanent Makeup uses a machine to vibrate a needle to punch holes in the skin.

We offer Semi Permanent Makeup to the highest standards. All procedures are performed by Candice Watson who has almost 30 years’ experience performing semi permanent makeup and medical micropigmentation in the UK, Dubai and internationally. To make an appointment please see below.

Is Microblading that good?

Is Microblading that good?

By Candice Watson, International Micropigmentation Specialist – Dubai, London & New York.

is-microblading-that-good

Note: Candice Watson performs micropigmentation including semi permanent makeup (SPMU) to the highest level. Micropigmentation is a tried and tested technique for inserting pigment into the skin and was first used over 25 years ago for semi permanent makeup.

Candice Watson writes: In my opinion the new Microblading technique offers far inferior results and is a very poor substitute for the machine method of micropigmentation used for semi permanent makeup.

For the last 6 months or so I have had a steady one or two clients come to me for removal or correction of their “new & amazing” microblading eyebrows because they look so bad. Of course technicians can’t please all of the people all of the time however last week I had 7 clients for removal of microblading eyebrows! All of whom had gone to the same specialist Brow salon (I won’t mention the name) and was disappointed with the results.  All were very upset at having paid quite a hefty sum for something that was not what they wanted and looked very poorly done.

The technician who performed the microblading had initially gone from telling them that she had 15 years experience (very unlikely given that microblading is only 18 months old) to her later admitting that she didn’t really know how to draw brows on!!!

Candice goes on to say: Now 1 or 2 clients not being happy per week is accepted but when its 7 in the same week there is something seriously wrong! I [Candice Watson] have to point out yet again that microblading is not a good method for semi permanent eyebrows! Just because something that failed totally 15 years ago has been given a new name does not mean it will work 2nd time around!

Now don’t get me wrong, there are the very odd few people, mainly in Europe that can give a lovely result with microblading, these people are usually highly skilled with many many years of SPMU training behind them. But even then the results cannot be guaranteed and after a few months will either spread or fade out unevenly.

Due to the nature of how microblading is applied you CANNOT get an even and precise implantation of pigment. The treatment relies solely on the technicians hand so unless they have the same constant pressure and speed in every hairstroke they apply (which is impossible) you will not get the results that you get from a good quality machine. High end, quality Semi Permanent Makeup machines are designed to place pigment at the same depth and with the same consistency of power throughout the whole treatment and if you add to that an experienced technician you will get the best results. Pigment has to be applied at an exact depth to ensure the pigment does not migrate (spread) within the skin and to ensure the pigment lasts for a certain period of time.

I cannot stress enough, and I say it every day to the unfortunate clients who come to me for removals and corrections, THIS IS YOUR FACE! It’s not just a haircut or a bad set of nail extensions that can grow out in just a few weeks; it’s there for a long time, on your face! Why do people continue to search for a ‘cheaper’ way to get their eyebrows done? Again, if it is cheaper (for whatever reason) then you need to ask yourself why? The answer I guarantee will be because you are getting an inexperienced technician or someone who is using cheap and poor quality products. Don’t be fooled by any other reason and please please stop with the microblading craze and pursuing cheap treatments!

 

Candice Watson performs corrections and removals of poorly done semi permanent makeup treatments including micropigmentation treatments for eyebrows.

Candice then comments “The clients then have to go through the added time and expense of having it all removed and re done again in the correct way. Removals cost around 1500 AED per session and due to the scaring caused by microblading often 3 or 4 sessions are required. Then eyebrows are reapplied using semi permanent makeup costing 3,000 AED. As you can see seeking cheaper treatments is not always the most cost effective”.
