What is permanent makeup and microblading ?

If you ever felt disatisfied with when looking in the mirror, you might have already wondered how you can feel better about yourself, permanently. Cosmetic surgery is one option but it’s often a bit too extreme or simply a bit too costly. Care products and makeup is another but it lacks in durability. So what about permanent makeup?

How does it work and what can you do with it?

What are permanent cosmetics

Permanent cosmetics are an innovative and revolutionary artistic technique. Also known as Micro pigmentation or cosmetic tattooing, this artistic enhancement consists of implanting natural pigments under the superficial layers of the skin. This might sound a bit complicated to understand but it requires more skills and finesse than anything.

Using a small sterile micro-needle, the natural pigments are inserted between the dermis and the epidermis, creating a lasting cosmetic effect. This technique usually requires a highly skilled artist as it needs to create a perfect visual illusion where hair or colour is missing. That can be in eyebrows, lips, skull, scars or even eyelashes which means it can help hide conditions such as hair loss or skin pigmentation issues or simply add that little extra to your beauty. This technique is very useful in providing colour in area’s of the lip’s where natural colouring of the mouth area is missing for example or give you the look of fuller, thicker eyelashes.

In the case of eyebrows, permanent makeup is often done through the use of the microblading technique, to replicate the look of thin and natural eyebrow hairs.


What is microblading?

Microblading is a relatively new technique originating from Asia. It has also been referred to as eyebrow embroidery.

Microblading is a tool manufactured with a micro size blade tip, which leaves a thin realistic hair stroke when applied to the eyebrow area. The blade tip is especially designed to assist in providing an even greater illusion of a natural growing eyebrow hair. When combining a series of micro line strokes, called (The Feathering Touch Technique) the completed results are unbelievably amazing! You will be astonished at how your eyebrows appear to be so very realistic, compared to before the procedure was done. This new tool has enabled our clinics to become even more proficient in creating the illusion of the most beautiful and natural looking realistic eyebrows.

The procedure is not performed by many permanent cosmetic tattooing artists so it is important to find not only one artist that will do it on you, but also one that you won’t regret visiting. Our salon for example, woks only with certified artists and has over 20 years of experience in the sector.
