Microblading Microblading is a type of eyebrow architecture. It is all about creating the best shape for each face – a totally bespoke approach for each client. The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end – needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut. The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes.

Microblading, unlike tattooing, is not in the deep layer of skin, but more on the surface. This is also not permanent, and the colour fades within 18 months. The hair strokes are far more natural and finer than any tattoo, as a handheld needle/blade is used – there is no electrical gadget that permeates deep in this technique. There is, therefore, more of a scratching noise, rather than a buzz of a tattoo gun which pierces the skin so deeply. Can you be allergic to microblading? There are people who are sensitive and allergic to some pigments, but in our experience, this is extremely rare. FF Skin will always perform a patch or scratch test to check you are not allergic prior to the treatment.
