WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Now that’s the question isn’t it? Microblading is a technique that has been used for thousands of years. Originally called eyebrow embroidery or feathering, a name given to the technique by its creators in Asia.
In the new age of the “natural brow” we needed something a bit better than the tattooed stripe that passed itself off as an eyebrow and boy did we find it. Inspiration was taken from the Asian eyebrow embroidery and microblading was born, the newest and greatest permanent makeup technique.
If done correctly, microblading strokes are done following the natural hair growth to look as natural as possible. Shaping of the eyebrow can be the most difficult, measuring and using the bone structure to show all facial features in the absolute best way.
Doesn’t sound easy? Well it’s not, each set of eyebrows is a new experience and always comes with their own challenges. It’s a new work of art that takes time, patience and a lot of heart.
How long does it last? Microblading can last anywhere from 8 months to 2 years depending on a few factors like skin type, skin condition, lifestyle, age and general health. Our skin is our largest organ and the last to get nutrients and our protection from the outside world.
Does healed microblading look like hair? Well it should, technique and skill are the most important things in getting good results but aftercare is just as important as the procedure itself. If aftercare instructions are disregarded pigment loss is a big possibility but there is no way for any technician to ensure clients follow good aftercare.
Healed results can be spectacular if proper aftercare is followed:

PhiBrows pigments never disappoint 😍 Healed work is so satisfying, it is how we measure our work. It allows us to see our mistakes and address issues ✊ #PhiBrows #Microblading #Eyebrows #BrowsOnFleek #PhiBrowsMaster #PhiMaster #PhiBrowsSA #JadePetkov #JadePetkovAcademy @jadepetkov
A touch up is almost always necessary, it fine tunes the results and adds pigment for a longer lasting procedure. Unfortunately nothing lasts forever, as we live our lives our skin produces new layers and microblading will slowly fade. Colour boosts are required every year or two to give the brows a fresh look.
