Modern cosmetology offers high-quality pigments, equipment for permanent, and now also a new technique - micropigmenting eyebrows, eyelids and lips, received their sincere admirers. Let's consider this procedure in more detail: how does it differ from usual tattooing, to whom is shown and whether there are contraindications?

Micropigmentation of eyebrows: a description of the procedure, contraindications and reviews

What is micropigmentation?

Micropigmentation of eyebrows (or microblasting) can rightfully be called a reconstruction. As confirmed by enthusiastic clients who have undergone this procedure, each hair is carefully drawn and looks incredibly natural. The main difference from conventional tattooing is that the eyebrow does not paint completely in one color. Equipment for this technique is also different, tattooing is done manually using a special tool resembling a scapula with several disposable microscopic needles.

Another positive difference from the classic tattoo, according to experts, is the depth at which the pigment is introduced. When microblasting, the paint is injected into the uppermost layer of the dermis. As a consequence, more comfortable sensations and a shorter period of rehabilitation period.

How long does the effect last

The effect of the procedure will be noticeable for two years. However, very much depends on the individual characteristics of the body, metabolism and how often the client spends time in the sun. Numerous reviews warn that under the influence of sunlight, the pigment has the property of burning out.

After the first procedure, correction of the micropigmentation of the eyebrows will be required, since the pigment may be rejected, and the master needs to again draw the missing hairs.

Unlike usual tattooing, microblazing does not last very long. This is due to the fact that today cosmeticians use natural organic pigments. They are absolutely harmless to health, do not cause allergic reactions, but eventually are excreted by the body.

Who is shown the procedure

Micropigmentation of eyebrows is required for those clients who for any reason have thin, rare eyebrows. If the hair is not enough to make a beautiful correct shape, you have to draw the hairs daily with pencils and eyebrows.

Also tattooing will help to mask the scars and scars on the eyebrows, filling with strokes of the right color, missing hairs.

In addition, in their responses, clients with allergic reactions to cosmetics or eyebrow colors report that they could resort to microblasting without harming their health.

After the procedure, according to the customers, the eyebrows will be darker and crisper, and their shape will be ideal in relation to the features and oval of the face.

How to prepare for the procedure?

What can not be done by going to the micropigmentation of the eyebrows?

  • Take antibiotics.
  • Drink alcohol, strong coffee and tea, energy drinks.
  • Take medications that dilute the blood, such as aspirin.
  • Take sun baths both in the solarium and on the beach.

Before going to the procedure, read reviews about the master, beauty salon or clinic, where he takes. It is advisable to see photos from the portfolio of the cosmetologist. Also on the websites of serious cosmetology clinics and salons you can see copies of certificates about the passage of the master of training. Do not go to the first cosmetologist, especially if the cost of the procedure is suspiciously low. Quality pigments and equipment can not be cheap, like the procedure itself. Do not skimp on your beauty and health.

The client has the right to request certificates for pigments and to verify the integrity of the disposable needles packing.

How is tattoo done?

The manual method of micropigmenting eyebrows always begins with the drawing of a pencil in their shape, as well as the choice of the color of the pigment. The shape and color are selected individually, with respect to the proportions of the face and color of the client. Having finished drawing, the master necessarily shows the client the result, and if that suits you, he starts tattooing. If the customer is dissatisfied with the shape or thickness of the eyebrows, then the master should make an adjustment and only after that start work.

During the procedure, the client lies on the couch on the back, the beautician must remove his hair with a disposable cap. The master himself must also be in a hat, mask and disposable gloves. Packing with needles, he must open at the client, as well as to disinfect the skin.

Not later than in 45 days, the client should come on correction, only after that it is possible to consider the procedure finished and to estimate the final result.

Is local anesthesia necessary for microblasting? The procedure of tattooing is painful, even though it is performed by manual technique. Very much depends on the individual sensitivity of the client, but almost always the masters apply an anesthetic cream to relieve the client of unpleasant sensations. The technique of eyebrow micropigmentation does not exclude the absence of anesthesia, but everything is very individual. The client can voluntarily refuse to "freeze", but only if it does not interfere with the process.

After disinfection, the cosmetologist applies a cream, for example "Emla", on the eyebrow area, covers them with a film and leaves for twenty to thirty minutes. When the skin will lose sensitivity, you can proceed to the procedure.

Microblasting Techniques

There are two ways to draw eyebrows:

  • European technology. It is simpler and faster than the other. The hairs that the master draws are of the same length and thickness, since during the work the beautician does not change the nozzle on the instrument.
  • Eastern. In this case, the hairs look absolutely natural, because the length, thickness, and if necessary, a shade, completely repeat the natural eyebrow. This procedure takes longer and, accordingly, costs more.

How much does the micropigmentation of the eyebrows cost? The price for the European equipment on the average keeps about 7 000 rubles, and for the eastern - about 10 000 rubles. Correction is usually half the cost of the procedure.


After the micropigmentation of the eyebrows, the client must follow simple rules:

  • Do not wet your eyebrows within 24 hours after tattooing.
  • Do not engage in physical activity, so as not to provoke sweating.
  • Do not touch your brows with your hands.
  • Do not use makeup.
  • Do not take sunbathing.
  • Do not go to the beach, the pool, the sauna.
  • Do not scratch your eyebrows.
  • Lubricate the eyebrows with a healing ointment, which the cosmetician will advise.
  • When the place of the tattoo will appear crusts, in any case do not tear them away.

According to the customers, if you properly take care of the skin after carrying out microblasting, then in two weeks the crusts will completely disappear, and in their place will be a healthy skin with new perfectly traced eyebrows.


Like any cosmetic procedure, microblasting has contraindications:

  • Inflammatory processes.
  • Infectious diseases.
  • Diseases of the blood.
  • Diabetes.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Oncological diseases.
  • Pregnancy.

Experts advise you to consult with your doctor about the contraindications to the procedure.

Microblogging Training

The result and positive feedback of clients, of course, depend on the professionalism of the master. And if you are reading this article not for the purpose of enrolling in a procedure, then you would like to engage in microblasting yourself. How is the training conducted? Micropigmentation of eyebrows is a kind of tattoo, so if you have experience in this field, then it will not be difficult to learn this technique. But even if you did not work early in the field of cosmetology and permanent make-up, it's never too late to learn.

Practically in every city there is a school that helps to master permanent make-up. Training of microblasting takes about three days. First, students are introduced to all health standards, because they will deal with the puncture of the skin. Further it is important to learn to understand the architecture of the eyebrows. Students will need to understand how to properly build an eye arch, based on the proportions of the face of each particular client. Coloring will also be touched upon, the ability to choose the right pigment, suitable for the natural color of the eyebrows and the client's hair.

The next stage is the most important - practice. On the dummy, the setting of the hand, the depth of the puncture, the size and thickness of the strokes are worked out. After the teacher accepts work on the dummy, practice can be practiced on the real client. The work takes place under the strict supervision of the teacher.
