Eyebrows really are such a high trend and in demand these days that we are now seeing more and more treatments being offered. I specialise in micro-pigmentation which a lot of people call 'permanent makeup'.
This is great news for the consumer due to having a wider choice, but this can also be equally confusing when selecting the right treatment for you. Lately there has been a few articles relating to a treatment called ‘micro blading’ and many of you have been asking how this compares to micro pigmentation (semi permanent makeup).
Microblading is the technique of implanting pigment after the creation of fine incisions in the skin and may date back thousands of years. However, the trend towards using the technique for eyebrows may have emerged recently.
Micropigmentation (which is my focus) is a semi-permanent makeup method and is done with a digital machine rather than a fine hand-held blade. The colour is implanted deeper into the skin-known as the dermis, hence it lasts longer than the Microblading/Eyebrow Embroidery method. The skin does take slightly longer to heal being that is was done with a digital pen therefore the treated area needs aftercare ointment for approximately a week.
The appointment time for micro-pigmentation /semi-permanent eyebrows is approximately 2 hours. This procedure takes a little longer than microblading but will last years and years and is a more precise art.
To be able to practice this treatment in the UK, your specialist needs to be licensed as well as fully trained (like me). Due to requirement of highly sterile environment this procedure should only take place in a fully licensed treatment room (which Definir has). If you are in any doubt you should always ask to see the specialist’s training certificate and their licence (I'm happy to provide this).
