The microblading is a trend that is the favourite of celebrities. The technique is similar to that implemented in tattoos but for cosmetic purposes. It is made with a personalized design for each person.
With the help of the Tebori, a Japanese instrument, a natural pigment is deposited hair by hair on the epidermis, achieving a 3D effect. But a special microblading aftercare is required after the microblading process.
What is Microblading?
This technique is the latest in semi-permanent makeup, a new beauty treatment that allows you to show off perfect eyebrows in just 1 hour. Microblading simulates real hair, both its thickness and its shape and color so that each hair is ‘drawn’ one by one to give a natural effect.
During the Microblading Process, a pencil and a special needle called Tebori are used. These instruments deposit the pigment on the dermis – it does not spread it like micro-pigmentation -, thus filling in the eyebrows. Like micro pigmentation, the professional must be very detailed to deliver a meticulous and natural result.
Microblading vs. Micro-pigmentation
These two techniques have the same purpose: to improve the eyebrows’ appearance, but what makes them different are the instruments used.
The micropigmentación is performed with a needle tip and used needles three or five points to give density or shading. This machinery is very similar to the one used to make tattoos; that is, it is a machine that works with electricity.
Additional facts about Microblading AfterCare

Tips for professionals Microblading
- More and more professionals are entering this field of work, as they are trained as the beauty market evolves.
- As there are so many trained professionals, the greater the competition. However, the ample supply is offset by the progressive increase in demand in recent months.
- Even though on the Internet you can find thousands of videos that teach this technique, it is necessary -for your reputation and the health of your clients- that you have a professional certificate, as well as experienced in the application of the procedure (which is usually earned during the course).
Likewise, be very neat in cleaning and sterilizing the instruments; never forget the use of gloves!
