Many young women opt for microbladed eyebrows/micro-stroke eyebrows because it’s touted as semi-permanent. These women are concerned that in the future that either their preferences or the design trend will change.
Microblading apprehensions that come to mind are noted below. However, have you been really told the truth by a person performing the Microblading procedure?
If you were told about potential permanent scars and brow loss would you under go the microblading procedure in the first place!
The preferred eyebrow permanent cosmetic alternative is “3D Hair Stroke”.
This procedure delivers thousands of tiny punctures leaving behind a trace amount of pigment with each skin puncture and is similar to a dot matrix image. These punctures leave the epidermis intact and if delivered correctly, the skin heals completely without scarring and the color will live within the skin for a longer amount of time.
The 3-D hair stroke method “tattoos” the pigment in rather than “slicing” it in like microblading. The strokes look the same, but will last approximately 2-5 years and sometimes longer
3-D hair strokes tattooed in the eyebrow area may be maintained for years to come. The skin heals completely leaving no scar tissue behind thus the tattoo can be refreshed as needed.
The cost is similar for both procedures.
Some will argue that microblading looks more natural than permanent cosmetic makeup procedures. However, this is only true of solid tattooing of the brows and even though it is probably the most common method used today, it is the highly skilled permanent cosmetic artists that have developed and been tattooing the 3-D eyebrow hair strokes for the last 25+ years.
The choice is ultimately up to the client. It is highly recommended to do your homework, and ask questions which procedure is right for you before under going the faddish eyebrow craze procedure known as microblading.
