microblading

Simply put, microblading is transformative . . .

Obviously, we don’t live in a perfect world. If we did, everyone would have naturally perfect eyebrows. As nice as that dream sounds, naturally perfect eyebrows are about as common as winning the lottery!

The truth is, all eyebrows are not created equal! Some brows require little effort to look perfect while others require the help of a trained professional. Here at b.LUXE we have the answer to your eyebrow woes with microblading! This technique transforms your brows, giving the appearance of natural shape and fullness.

ORIGINS OF MICROBLADING

Eyebrow microblading goes by a few different names like microstroking, micropigmentation, eyebrow embroidery and 3D eyebrows. No matter the name, the procedure of microblading eyebrows is relatively new here in the United States, while it has been popular in Asia and Europe for roughly 25 years. That’s actually not a bad thing because it has allowed the techniques to refine and improve significantly since its origin.

MICROBLADING VS PERMANENT MAKEUP

The procedure sounds a lot like a tattoo because that’s exactly what it is! More specifically, though, microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo that uses fine, pigmented strokes to simulate natural hair growth. These are nothing like the permanently tattooed eyebrows of yesteryear that look like they were drawn on using a sharpie, then fading to unnatural shades of blue and green. This is where the refined skills of the modern microblading artist come in to play!

There are two major differences that make today’s microblading results more aesthetically pleasing when compared to the results of previous permanent cosmetics.

First, the type of pigment used for modern microblading is iron-oxide based. Iron oxide has been a popular ingredient in cosmetics like foundation, blush, lipstick, and eyeshadow for decades. An iron oxide base allows the color to softly fade over time and ultimately vanish, unlike the inks used in permanent cosmetic tattoos.

Second, the pigment used for microblading isn’t implanted into the skin as deeply as the depth used for permanent cosmetic procedures. The proper depth for the color to be implanted during the mircoblading procedure is the upper layer of the dermis. The pigment being implanted to the correct depth, combined with its iron oxide base is what gives microblading results the appearance of natural looking eyebrows. The semi-permanent qualities of the microblading pigment prevent it from fading into unnatural shades that are so common with permanent cosmetics.

SEE YA LATER BROW ROUTINE

Not only do microblading results look amazingly natural, they require no daily upkeep! So kiss the daily eyebrow routine goodbye!

No love loss here when saying, “see ya later” to your daily eyebrow routine! Microbladed eyebrows typically last somewhere between one to three years, depending on the client’s skin type and lifestyle. We recommend a touch up 12-18 months later to keep the color looking vibrant, and the microblade strokes crisp.

Another added benefit of semi-permanent makeup is its flexibility! Considering how skin changes with age and eyebrow trends can differ with time, the eyebrow shape and color can be adapted to fit changes in skin and current eyebrow trends!

You are one step away from your face-flattering, eyebrow transformation!
