Benefits of Microblading - what you need to know. Sweet Skin Beauty Studio, Sqamish, BC Microblading Ombre Brows

Microblading has become the hottest new trend in semi-permanent makeup for the brows over the last year. Women all over the nation are taking advantage of this new and safe way to make their brows look full without the hassle of having to apply makeup every morning

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a manual method of implanting pigment in hair-like strokes in the epidermis to create the look of fuller brows. This form of tattooing is the newest trend in Semi-Permanent Makeup.

The natural-looking results are achieved with a sharp, hand-held blade made up of 7+ microneedles. Instead of outlining and completely filling in the outline of your brows with color, microblading actually allows for the placement of hair like strokes into the skin.

Whereas traditional tattooing uses needles on a rotary/coil machine to push ink 7 layers deep into the skin, microblading uses a manual blade and only targets 3 layers of skin.

Because the pigment sits so superficially in the skin the strokes are sharp, crisp, and they mimic the look of real hair! Your new brows will last anywhere between 1-3 years depending on the environmental exposure it receives.

Here are 9 reasons why Microblading is worth every penny:

1. It Will Save You Money

How much are you spending yearly on eyebrow filling products or brow tinting services? Do the math! The results from microblading last anywhere from 1-3 years depending on how your skin retains the pigment.

2. It Will Save you Time

How many mornings have you woken up only to realize that you’re running late for work again? But wait! You can’t just leave yet, you still don’t have your eyebrows on! For a lot of women, this is the daily routine – they spend anywhere from 10-15 minutes reshaping and filling their eyebrows. You will be glad to know that with Microblading, you will be allowed to skip those few minutes every day because you won’t have to go through the struggle of filling in your eyebrows anymore and avoid the hassle of trying to get them to match!

3. Convenient Solution to Regain Eyebrows

Another microblading benefit is that it is perfect for people who have unfortunately lost their eyebrows to an illness or worse, chemotherapy. With microblading done, you will easily regain your brows on that beautiful face along with new confidence.

4. Won’t Smudge or Wear Off

Microbladed brows do not smear or smudge. People with active lifestyles don’t need to worry about loosing their eyebrow definition with sweaty exercise.

5. Virtually Painless

When you come in for your session the first thing we will do is use a strong numbing cream. This cream makes the process virtually pain-free. The only thing clients feel is a slight scratching sensation as the pigment is implemented into the skin.

6. Pigment Won’t Change Color, Only Loses Saturation

Ever seen a tattoo that’s gone from black to green? That wouldn’t happen with microblading. The pigments used in microblading are all organic and specifically made so that they do not change color. We specifically use pigments that are free from iron oxides and heavy metals, which can discolour after time. They will slowly lose saturation over time, cueing you to come in for a touch-up session!

7. It’s Very Safe.

Microblading is very safe in the hands of a professional microblading artist. It is minimally invasive and has very little if any down time!
We only use sterile, one-time use, disposable equipment and microblades. To ensure your safety even more, we encourage you to come in for a consultation first to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

8. It’s Semi-Permanent

Microblading is semi-permanent so you don’t have to commit to them forever. Microbladed brows will fade over time and you will be able to change them up as your face changes due to age, or style and colour preference.
