What is Microblading

What is Microblading and how does it differ from traditional permanent techniques?

Microblading is the art of creating realistic looking eyebrows manually using incredibly fine sterile needles (like a comb). These gently implant pigment into the upper layer of the Dermis. Finely drawn hair strokes then mimic your real hair in thickness, length and direction of hair growth creating almost any look from a very bold eyebrow to a light natural brow. Every hair stroke is drawn individually allowing a completely individual look to be built up.  If no hair is present, Linda can totally create new brows that suit your face shape and mimic that of a natural brow.

Working together, you and Linda can design a brow which is totally bespoke to you.

The pigment can be mixed especially for you taking into account your skin tone, hair colour and individual style. She uses the UKs best Micropigmentation range – KB Pro Pigments (2016 and 2017).

How does microblading differ from traditional permanent make up?

Microblading was the original form of permanent cosmetics before the invention of electrical machines. While Permanent cosmetics do share similarities to traditional tattooing, its roots are in the fairly specialist area of facial tattooing. It is also known as eyebrow embroidery or eyebrow feathering.

Microblading differs from traditional permanent make up (PMU) as it uses a slightly different technique to create the eyebrows. It is still firmly in the tattoo family, meaning the pigment is implanted into the skin but a precision hand tool is used instead of a machine.
The beauty of Microblading is that the hair like strokes are so fine that it’s the most hyper realistic treatment yet. The fine channels created by the Microblading technique are closer to the surface than when using a machine and the needles used are even sharper. This allows for sharper, even more precise hair strokes. If you want the most natural looking brows that no one can guess you had this is “the treatment to have”.

PMU/ Micropigmentation/ Permanent cosmetics are all used to describe the same procedure. They differ from a regular tattoo as they are done using a cosmetic tattooing machine. The machine is used to gently implant pigment into the skin using a variety of fine needles. The machine differs from a regular tattoo machine as it uses a much lower frequency meaning the pigment is implanted closer to the surface of the skin.
