Difference between microblading and (semi) permanent make-up?


Microblading is a technique used with a handpiece equipped with a blade of micro-needles very close together used by sliding under the skin for the insertion of a color. This so-called superficial technique fades quickly because the skin renews itself after 28 days. If the micro-needle blade is inserted too deeply, it scarifies the skin, often leaving scars.

How to correct the black line of the eyes that turned blue?


Black pigment is a colour composed with blue. To neutralize this blue, simply add a gray/blue stop to your black pigment to help stabilize it.

NOTE: There are organic pigments on the market that are very liquid and are composed of a carbon powder whose colour remains black. However, it is VERY risky to obtain a dispersion of the pigment in the skin during application. It is then very difficult to correct.

Is it possible to do (semi) permanent make-up over a microblading?


Make sure there are no scars from the microblading before the (semi) permanent make-up procedure. It is advisable to take a picture first.

If the skin is damaged as a result of microblading it is best not to apply (semi) permanent make-up, as the skin will not retain the colour.

How long does (semi) permanent make-up last?

What is the difference between permanent and (semi) permanent make-up?


The technique is the same, the appellation is different according to each region/country. Some use the term PERMANENT since some particles remain in the skin even after several years. It is advisable to refresh the colour after 2 to 3 years, this is why the term (SEMI) PERMANENT is more appropriate.

A more fixing pigment (liquid) is more at risk of allergy and the density of colour change is very high.

A more natural, creamy pigment will fade from year to year.

It is better to retouch a colour than to camouflage it, in both cases it will be necessary to retouch.

Do I have to do allergy tests before (semi) permanent make-up?
