The belief that Microblading and Cosmetic Tattooing is semi-permanent, is a misconception! Even though most Cosmetic Tattooing procedures fade over time, it is NOT Semi-permanent. Any technique done in permanent makeup is a TATTOO and regardless of the techniques, tools, pigments, or the depth in the skin the work is done at....... it is a tattoo!!
There is NO way the artist to tell you how long the pigment will retain in the skin. Each person is so unique and lifestyles vary so greatly. So, yes while most of these techniques will fade with time, calling them Semi-permanent is very misleading.
Pain is experienced differently but everything but I do believe in keeping my clients a comfortable as possible. I apply an anesthetic or Numbing medication both before the producer and during to insure my clients are comfortable for beginning to end.
Depending on the treatment done in most cases Cosmetic Tattooing will last between 2-5 years. Despite popular belief, the work will still be visible in the first few year and there is no way to truly know when the work will not be completely gone.
There are several factors that play into how long your Cosmetic Tattoo will will last. Things such as skin type, life style, sun exposure and skin care can affect how long the client can go between touch ups.
Microblading is now a popular term for a form of Cosmetic Tattooing of the eyebrow. However, styles and techniques are often and can be confusing. When most people think of "Microblading" they are thinking of the manual tool used to create hair strokes. The hair stroke look can be achieved the manual tool or by a Permanent makeup machine.
A Permanent make up machine very similar to a traditional tattoo machine with a few small differences.
- I do not use the manual tool to create my brows. Everything is done with a digital PMU machine.
Nano-strokes is a technique used to create what looks like a hair stroke. Shading is a soft deposit of color the looks more like make up.
Yes and no.
Yes, you will need a consultation if you have previous work that was done by another artist, If you have skin conditions such as Alopicia, severely unsymmetrical brows, Large scars/moles over the area, Would like a patch test or if you are are still on the fence about having the treatment done.
- Not all previous work and be gone over or touched up. Some people may require lightening or removal, others may need a color corrections, and some can be worked over. This needs to be decided by the artist.
No, You dont need a consultation before if you dont not have previous work, if you have no skin conditions and if you are sure you would like the treatment done.
