Eyebrow Microblading Dubai UAE, is it new?

by Candice Watson of Exclusive Aesthetic – The Micropigmentation Specialists to the Middle East.

So, Eyebrow Microblading is the newest thing, right? WRONG! Microblading is, in fact, older than you may think.

I remember using a very similar technique to eyebrow microblading about 15 years ago, and back then, we called it soft tap, which I was never sure why, as results weren’t achieved with soft tapping! Nevertheless, Soft Tap was exactly the same method as Eyebrow Microblading is today – a plastic or sometimes metal hand-held tool with a needle of various sizes inserted into the end to slice the skin open and implant pigment.

Is Microlading Soft-Tap?

Years ago, soft tap quickly went out of fashion with the introduction of micropigmentation machines. Micropigmentation machines are finely tuned to implant pigment exactly at the depth it should be for the process to last 2 – 3 years. 

Even with the very best trained technicians, the eyebrow microblading technique, due to its nature, will not achieve good, lasting results. Microblading may look good, to begin with, for a short time, but then will quickly fade unevenly and migrate (spread) over time – the once-crisp hairlines will become fuzzy.

Here are a few obvious drawbacks to Soft Tap back in the day:

  1. Impossible to achieve a consistent and even penetration of the pigment as it is all done to the therapist’s hand skills
  2. More trauma is caused to the skin because of the delivery method
  3. Pigment has a much greater chance of being implanted at the wrong depth or migration due to poor application technique
  4. Results depend on how light or heavy-handed the technician is.

Results last for a few months?

Microblading technicians claim that the results last a few months; however, how can this be determined?  The time the pigment stays in the skin is down to its applied depth. Too shallow is less time, too deep, and you get a permanent tattoo. The results of Eyebrow Microblading depend on how light or heavy-handed the technician is.

I have recently done several eyebrow removals on people who had Eyebrow Microblading in Dubai, and there was no sign of it fading. Clients complained of the look after 6 months of the initial application. In my opinion, Eyebrow Microblading is far more difficult to remove than normal semi-permanent makeup for eyebrows, which indicates the pigment was implanted deeper than it should have. There was scarring to the skin caused by the blade, creating too much trauma to the area.

but Eyebrow Microblading is so much cheaper than Semi Permanent Makeup!

Microblading is cheaper than SPMU

I always hear, “But microblading is much cheaper than semi-permanent makeup!” Yes, of course, eyebrow microblading is cheaper because it is done with cheap equipment—a cheap tool and blade!

We strongly advise you to try a tried and tested micropigmentation method and semi-permanent makeup for your next eyebrow treatment. As always, ensure you choose experienced and knowledgeable specialists. Maybe then you reduce the risks of having a bad treatment and hopefully ensure your treatment lasts more than a few months.
