Brows frame the face, create balance and draw attention right where you want it – on your baby blues (or browns). While pencils, gels, and plucking have been brow grooming mainstays, microblading has risen as the go-to treatment for fuller, natural-looking results.
Microblading entails using a very fine pen that is really tiny needles to deposit pigment into the skin in strokes that resemble human hair. Since these fine needles only go to the superficial layers of the skin, this technique is semi-permanent as opposed to brow tattoos which are considered permanent. The key benefit of microblading technique is that when done by an expert, it offers a more natural look that lasts well but is not permanent. In most people, the effects can last from 1-3 years.
Microblading is a form of tattooing. So why is it not regulated in so many states?
I have been a LICENSED tattooist in a medical spa. Specializing in permanent Brows, Eyeliner and scar camouflage for 11 years. And just completed specialized training for areola and nipple restoration.
Yet anyone can buy a "microblading kit" with NO VALID training or license and set up shop.? Understand it is only a matter of time till someone has a problem.
