Which is better Microblading or tattooing eyebrows

Which is better Microblading or tattooing eyebrows

An eyebrow tattoo is a cosmetic procedure of having an ink injected into the skin to create, fill in, or darken the current eyebrow. 

You may have sparse eyebrows and want to have a fuller look or you may have light eyebrows and feel that having an eyebrow tattoo could give you more noticeable brows. 

With microblade eyebrows, the procedure is similar to getting a tattooed brow, but instead of ink, pigments are used which make them look all the more natural.

Also, there are those who have no eyebrows, due to a medical condition, over tweezing, or maybe just not have much to start out with. These are all good reasons for getting the cosmetic procedure performed. However, there is some question about getting it done: which is better, microblading or tattooing eyebrows?

Does The Tattoo Get Lighter?

During the first two weeks, the eyebrows may appear darker than what they will turn out to be in the end. The healing will take 10-14 days and after the eyebrow area peels, you will then have a lighter color.

If you don’t like the appearance you can let the technician know or wait until your follow-up appointment and see how you like the look then.

The eyebrow tattoo can last for years or even a lifetime. Touch-up appointments extend the appearance of the tattooed brows which can be done every six months to every few years. 

Microblading Eyebrows

You may be wondering how long this technique generally lasts. The answer to that is that it can range depending upon certain factors but usually lasts for a duration of between six months and two years. Certain things are known to affect the staying power of microblading, such as your skin type in terms of dry versus oily, the facial products you use, sun exposure, and lifestyle.

Touch-ups are to be expected once per year. If you have oily skin, the microblading will likely fade faster than other skin types. This means that those with oily skin require more frequent touch-ups. For further details about microblading eyebrows, contact us.
