Microblading eyebrows and micropigmentation of eyebrows: what differences are there?

Microblading for brows and micropigmentation of eyebrows are techniques within the makeup and semi permanent eyebrows. Both are used as a method to correct the profile of the eyebrows, and is very common among those women who suffer from eyebrow thin, with little hair or bald patches and excessive hair removal. It is also a technique that we apply for when looking to define eyebrows very populated, redefine the volume of the same and also to achieve a symmetry in the look.

Both the techniques of microblading eyebrow as the micropigmentation of the eyebrows are easy to conduct and fast healing with the difference that with the art of microblading is always done hair by hair and with micropigmentation can also be performed by a shader.

Therefore, in this sense, the micropigmentation is more versatile because it can be done hair by hair and shading, as there are cases that the patient has his own hair and just give it more density.

What are the differences between microblading eyebrows and micropigmentation of eyebrows?

The microblading is done with a pen made of metal similar to a small scalpel and the micropigmentation is performed with a needle of a tip to design the hair and hands of three or five tips to create the redensificación.

In both cases, are inorganic pigments with mineral-based, since they are hypoallergenic , reducing the risk of the implant and without the possibility of allergic reactions.

How is the process of microblading?

The shape of the eyebrows are measured during a test of design with a special tool in which we draw the lines of symmetry. A range of different shapes and sizes of blades helps to imitate the hair of the eyebrows original. As in any procedure of makeup of eyebrows, we look at the skin tone, the light resistance of the pigments used, the habits of sun exposure of the client (let’s say that it is a person who is more in the light of the sun than other for example), the color of the hair, the expectations…

Does it last the same?

Not, other of the differences between the microblading and micropigmentation of eyebrows is its duration. The microblading eyebrows usually last about 2 years, below the permanent makeup traditional, whose duration will depend on the type of skin, age and care applied.

What is a better technique than the other? what will achieve better results?

There are professionals who say that the microblading eyebrow is better than the micropigmentation because it is done much more superficially, but the majority of professionals of micropigmentation think that depends on the expertise of the professional. We can find professionals from microblading that they do not dominate the technique and deepen over the account, and professionals of micropigmentation which to perform their work with much expertise and achieve an effect of maximum definition with little depth.

In consequence, we may conclude that the sharpness of the strokes is more a function of the skill of the practitioner not the technique that is applied. And why most of the professionals feel that we cannot say that one technique is better than the other in terms of eyebrows.

Every person with the help of our professionals, specialists in micropigmentation and microblading must decide which technique is decided according to your wishes and peculiarities.

Are there other alternatives to the microblading and micropigmentation?

Yes, in many cases it is possible to get a hair transplant to the eyebrows, and is a treatment that is becoming more common. There are cases such as alopecia scar where the eyebrow transplant gives spectacular results and the patients recover their self-esteem, because the eyebrows have a key role in our image to be in the face, the body part that is always visible.

In any case, if you have little hair on your eyebrows or you want to give more volume and definition, consultation of specialists.

    Thanks for your comment about how semi permanent makeup is good for people who want to correct their eyebrows. I didn’t know that it’s good to make for defining them. My sister is tired of always fixing her eyebrows. She is considering semi permanent makeup as an alternative.

    I didn’t know that microblading is considered semi-permanent. Every time I do my makeup, I have to fill in my eyebrows and it is a paint getting them to look just right with waxes, pencils, and powders. I’ve been considering tattoo makeup, but the permanence of it scares me. Now that I know microblading is an option, I will have to look into it more.
