In the practice of PMU, Microblading is a tattooing technique used to create small, hair-like strokes to fill thinning areas of the eyebrows. It’s a technique for people who want a natural, groomed eyebrow look that lasts. This style is best achieved with a powerful, super easy-to-handle device like the Spektra Xion S that allows artist the control and precision necessary for this technique. When microblading, the pigments aren’t implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, so a little fading is to be expected over time.
In addition to microblading, microfeathering and microshading are two other techniques that give the brow different looks depending on preferences and needs. For a light filling of existing eyebrows, you may want to try microfeathering, which delivers thin, fine strokes that simulate hair. Like microblading, microfeathering requires a fine blade to create tiny incisions where the pigment is then deposited. Microfeathering doesn’t have the staying power of microblading and will need follow-up maintenance between 8 – 12 months. Microshading is a process for anyone who wants their brows to look thick, and filled in. Rather than the hair stroke of typical microblading and microfeathering, microshading uses a stippling method of repetitive dots of pigment. Here is Microbeau's Elite artist Amie Connors, featuring very natural work done in eyebrows.
The beauty of these processes is in the fine details that deliver a natural, fresh look in addition to correcting small brow line imperfections. Microbeau’s Spektra Xion S – the first tattooing device of its kind: powerful, comfortable, and compact, was designed to offer the permanent makeup artist the control and precision to work these techniques to perfection.
