3D eyebrow embroidery is an eyebrow tattoo with hair strokes. This hair-stroking mimics an actual strand of eyebrow hair, so it is much more realistic than past permanent makeup applications.
It’s is also known as:
-3D eyebrow tattooing
-Feather touch tattooing
3D eyebrow embroidery has been gathering momentum across the globe over the last three years. 3D eyebrow embroidery artists are popping up everywhere and being offered by hairdressers, nail salons, and doctors. So how do you go about choosing a 3D eyebrow embroidery professional? The answer is simple; go to an expert.
3D eyebrow embroidery or Microblading as it is more commonly known is a semi-permanent makeup procedure available for eyebrows. 3D eyebrow embroidery uses a tiny blade to cut the skin in a hair-shaped line, and that line or ‘stroke” as it is called is then filled with ink. These hair shaped lines form a row of hairs that impersonate your real eyebrow hair. These impersonating hairs replace hairs lost from past plucking and can restore eyebrows to their first state. But what if you didn’t have great eyebrows to start with? No matter. It doesn’t matter what condition your brows are in, Microblading makes it is possible to achieve brow perfection.
Microblading is also offering a much more realistic solution for people with chronic hair loss such as Alopecia. Additionally, it provides an excellent solution for chemotherapy patients. Already suffering a problematic situation in their lives, Microblading is giving realistic faux eyebrow hair back to cancer patients. And since it is not a huge time commitment, being semi-permanent, is gaining popularity hand over foot.
Eyebrows are being reborn across the globe. Microblading is giving brows the ability to be fuller, thicker and longer than ever imagined before. And this technique applies to any brow; you can have thin, thick, full, blonde, brunette or black eyebrows. Any brow is a candidate for Microblading. There are little limitations of what can be achieved with the art of 3D eyebrow embroidery, making many American women (and men!) want to seek out the treatment.
So why on earth is something so simple becoming so popular? The saying “if eyes are the window to the soul then eyebrows are the window frame” speaks volumes. Great brows, good day, good mood. Part of feeling good is looking good, and a superb set of eyebrows can make a better impression. So why all of a sudden is this becoming a ‘thing’? Tattoos of the past are having an overhaul. Linear tattoos of the sixties and seventies were just one line for each brow, an outline was drawn, and then inside that outline was colored in, like in the lines of a coloring book. This design could leave eyebrows looking artificial and harsh. So a new technique was born 3D eyebrow embroidery or Microblading.
So how does it differ from linear tattooing? Microblading mimics a single individual eyebrow hair, much more detailed and refined than a linear tattoo. The reason this art looks so incredible it how is placed in the skin. Since the blade is so small, more detail can be produced.
Additionally, Microblading sits in the surface, utterly different from tattoos of yesteryear. Microblading is semi-permanent, lasting 1-3 years whereas linear eyebrow tattooing can last up to ten years or more. The difference is depth. The depth the ink is placed in the skin is the result of how long it will last. Tattoos done with a tattoo gun deposit ink into the dermis level making the tattoo deep and outside of the layers of skin that will regenerate. Microblading deposits ink into the epidermis, high up in the surface in the superficial layers of the skin, the layers that will regenerate over time. This time is usually 1-3 years depending on some factors. People with dry skin or thin skin tend to get better retention than someone who has oily and thick skin. Oily skinned clients due to their constant skin lubrication can sometimes have difficulty taking all the strokes. Mature skin will often take the pigment more efficiently as an older skin can be much drier. Blood thinners must not be consumed before a Microblading procedure. Clients must refrain from taking ibuprofen, aspirin or drinking alcohol 24 hours up to your 3D eyebrow embroidery appointment. Additionally, vitamin E capsules can result in added bleeding. It is recommended Vitamin E capsules be avoided one week prior to the treatment. Excessive bleeding can inhibit pigment from taking so all blood thinners must be avoided for a successful procedure. Following aftercare to a tee is a must! An excellent Microblading professional will give you full aftercare packed to follow and will be available to speak to if you get nervous about the process along the way.
