DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICROBLADING AND MICRO-PIGMENTATION?
Microblading and micro-pigmentation are not the same.
What is the difference? Which is more durable? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each of them? Which is the most suitable for me? In this article we explain everything about capillary microblading and capillary micropigmentation.
Both treatments are semi-permanent solutions to hair loss, although it is carried out through different techniques. None of these treatments are surgical, they are only outpatient treatments. They are cosmetic treatments that resemble tattooing, but not as deep.
Microblading was used only on the eyebrows, to give more prominence to the face. However, today they have begun to practice this technique on the head as well, although it is not that common.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING? WHAT IS THE TECHNIQUE? WHEN DO YOU USE SCALP MICROBLADING?
Scalp microblading consists of the replication of the hair through small superficial cuts on which a pigment is deposited. This is what is known as ‘strokes’. It is carried out with a non-electric manual blade or stylus with which lines similar to natural hair are drawn.
As a result, an illusion of the existence of hair like strands is obtained in areas with low capillary density. Microblading is usually used in areas where the hair strands are highly visible, such as the eyebrows or in the hairline around the face. Microblading lasts about one year, so continuous touch-ups are needed
WHAT IS MICROPIGMENTATION? WHAT IS THE TECHNIQUE? WHEN DO YOU USE SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
Micropigmentation or tricopigmentation consists of drawing small dots on the scalp, simulating growing hair follicles in bald areas. This is done through an electric machine with 0.30-millimeter needles that introduce the pigment into the skin layer. As a result, bald areas will be disguised and the hairline will be defined, with a shaved look. Micropigmentation is more durable (around five years), requiring touch-ups at least every 2 years Micropigmentation is suitable for those people who tend to shave their heads or those who tend to comb their hair trying to cover the bald area since it creates a shading effect (hides the difference between skin and hair color). Between these two options, micro pigmentation is the most used option to cover bald or less dense areas in the head. It is the most used in people not suitable for hair transplantation.
ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF MICROBLADING
|Pros of microblading✅||Cons of microblading❌|
-It is a good treatment to hide temporary hair loss because it is not very durable.
-It is a good technique to highlight the eyebrows.
-It is cheaper than micropigmentation.
-Simulates real hair, therefore it is a more suitable technique for those women who have areas with less capillary density, mainly under the face.
-It is semi-permanent, so it needs touch-up every 12 months approximately.
-The ‘strokes’ can suffer infection if it is not developed with the correct hygiene.
-It is not the appropriate technique when suffering from advanced alopecia.
-It may not solve hairline problems.
ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF MICROPIGMENTATION
|Pros of micropigmentation✅||Cons of micropigmentation❌|
-Its effects lasts longer.
-Local anesthesia is used so the procedure is painless.
-It can be applied in completely bald areas or in areas with low hair density.
-It is applicable to all skin types.
-Different shades of pigment are used to obtain a more natural result.
-Pigment spots do not disappear completely, so if you regret it or your hair turns gray as you age, the marks will be visible.
-There is no procedure to remove the points.
-Need touch-ups every 2 years or so (depending on different factors).
-It is not for people who want long hair, as it requires constant cutting of natural hair to maintain a shaved look.
The result of these techniques can be disastrous if not put in the right hands, since you will not get the natural result you are looking for. This can occur because the color does not resemble natural hair, is not inserted to the proper depth, or does not follow the pattern of each person’s hair follicles. Therefore, Revival Health Group advises you to seek professionals with skills and experience in carrying out these techniques and ask for before and after photos of their previous clients to ensure they show a natural look.
If what you want is to recover your hair again as you had it before and stop camouflaging it with these techniques, then do not hesitate and undergo a hair transplant.
