Microblading is one of the newest trends to fill in thinning hair lines and is suitable for men and women. What started as a cosmetic treatment to help create fuller eyebrows is now being used on the scalp too. Hair line microblading is a new technique that uses a hand tool to create natural hair strokes and shadow while implanting pigment underneath the skin. Whereas normal scalp tattooing is using the machine to create tiny micro dots to simulate hair follicles. The hair line microblading treatment works best in the hair line area. For most women the areas that needs filling in are the temples. The best candidate will be someone who’s hair is thinning and not completely bald as the tattoo needs to be slightly concealed by surrounding hair strands.
The results are immediate and gradually fade over time
The technician will match up the pigment to the client’s natural hair colour and will use a few different shades to create an illusion of very fine natural looking hair strands. Up to 3 -4 sessions are recommended to achieve the best result. A top up every 12 months is recommended to keep the area looking fresh. Your technician might apply a topical anesthetic before the procedure as some clients find the procedure slightly uncomfortable.
The cost of the hair line microblading treatment depends of the size of the area that needs to be worked on. Your technician will be charging you per hour so it is essential to have a consultation to get the correct quote.
Microblading does not encourage new hair growth. Microblading is not recommended for clients with advanced hair loss or alopecia on the scalp and would have better results with the scalp micropigmentation treatment.
