Microblading Versus Permanent Makeup

The Benefits of Both Procedures and Tips for Finding Which is the Right One for Your Perfect Brows

on May 22, 2017

We all have the one friend with flawless eyebrows. The question is, how does she always get them to be so perfect? Well, odds are she’s had either permanent makeup or microblading done to them, so they are on point at all times. But what is the difference between the two and how can you tell which is the better procedure to get you your own impeccable brows? Let us look at Microblading Versus Permanent Makeup.

Both microblading and permanent makeup are tools to make your eyebrows look fuller, thicker, and more tinted. However, they are slightly different in their process and goal. Microblading is a process of mimicking tiny hairs, giving your brows a more naturally full look. Permanent makeup, on the other hand, doesn’t look like individual hairs, but rather as if you had penciled in your eyebrows to be darker and thicker, but without the risk of washing them off!

Here are some of the other differences in the two procedures:

Microblading Versus Permanent Makeup Microblading The first, and most major difference in permanent makeup and microblading is that microblading is done by hand drawing every individual line. Each fine line is created by the a technician, which allows you to avoid the “bleeding out” that typical tattoos can have. Also unlike traditional permanent makeup tattoos, microblading uses less ink, meaning the results last between one and three years. One of the biggest differences with microblading is that the ink used will either maintain its original hue, or lighten over times as your natural eyebrows do. Finally, microblading is generally reported as less painful than permanent makeup procedures. This is because our technicians will use a topical anesthetic, which numbs you from most of the pain.

Microblading Versus Permanent Makeup Permanent Makeup Permanent makeup has been around far longer than microblading, which means it is more common and understood. Permanent makeup is done with a machine, meaning it has a more streamlined procedure than microblading. If you think about the thickness you get when you draw your eyebrows on with a pencil, that’s the equivalent of getting permanent makeup. As with any tattoo, lots of ink is inserted in the dermal layer of skin, meaning there will be a much thicker look, with far less fading. Colors will generally stay the same as when you first got them, and your results will last much longer. While microblading results last up to three years, permanent makeup will always be on your skin, with natural fading over time just as any other tattoo does.
