There are a wide range of terms used to describe this technique, the more general being microblading, feather eyebrow tattooing, eyebrow embroidery, to the glamorized terms of 3D brows, 6D effect etc.
While the terms may vary, they all broadly refer two the same process whereby a tattooist applies colored pigment to a client's eyebrows using a fine bladed hand tool. Unlike standard eyebrow tattoos, this method is semi-permanent and can last up to three years. With the microblading technique, a more natural look is achieved as it aims to simulate hair strokes rather than a full shaded or block effect.
This method is ideals for clients who want to naturally enhance the look of their eyebrows. People suffering from alopecia, those who have over-plucked, or who have sparse eyebrow hair growth can benefit greatly from Microblading.
The results are natural and shaped fuller looking brows. the tattoo will initially appear darker but fades significantly during the healing process. A touch up appointment is required at a minimum of 6 weeks or later to address any inconsistent healing. Following this, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
