What is the difference between microblading and microshading?
The goal of both microblading and microshading is to create the illusion of perfect eyebrows. Each one involves tiny tattoo needles, semi-permanent ink, and an intense application process. After each procedure, your face will need time for healing and for the ink to settle. Following either service, the results will appear between two and four weeks after you have your brows done.
The difference between the two is in the method that the artist uses to apply the ink.
Microblading eyebrows involves tiny cuts that mimic hairs when filled in with different shades of ink. This process is slightly more intensive and creates bold, natural-looking eyebrows. If you’re ready for a change without a lot of work on your part, this is the brow process for you.
When you undergo a microshading eyebrow treatment, tiny dots of color fill in your brows. This process is the best choice for customers who have light or thin eyebrows that need a boost. Furthermore, microshading tends to work better for people with sensitive or oily skin.
What does microblading feel like?
Most people agree that the process of microblading eyebrows in Toronto
is not as intense or painful of an experience as they initially thought it would be. This preconceived notion stems from knowledge or experience of permanent tattooing. Permanent tattoos use loud guns and large needles to poke ink deep into the skin. On the other hand, semi-permanent eyebrow ink application methods involve tiny needles and a less invasive procedure overall.
Microshading happens using tiny cuts, almost like paper cuts, in the skin. Then, the artist fills those new spaces with ink.
Because the technician numbs your forehead before the procedure, all you feel are tiny scratches. It doesn't feel as if someone is cutting or poking your face. The primary discomfort for the majority of clients comes from the scratching sound you hear while your artist is working on your new brows.

Can you remove microblading?
The short answer is not easily. However, as you might have guessed, there is a bit more to it than that.
For most people, microblading is semi-permanent. The ink will begin to fade as your skin regenerates. For the natural fading to occur, you have to wait between six months to one year.
If you decide that you need your new brows removed as soon as possible, the process becomes tricky. Sometimes, laser tattoo removal will work to reveal your natural skin once again. Other times, microblading results in tiny, ink-filled scars across your eyebrows. If you are one of the few people who experience scarring, no one can remove the ink.
Rest assured, the artists at Chronic Ink are committed to delivering results you love. Our collaborative process ensures that your brows will be what you envisioned.
Is microblading better than tattooing your eyebrows?
If your goal is to have eyebrows that look like natural brows, only better, then microshading or microblading is the best way to go. Even though these processes require touch-ups and maintenance, they enhance your look without appearing fake.
Tattooed eyebrows, while permanent and upkeep free, do not have the same hair-like quality. For these brows, ink is applied deep within the skin, which makes it impossible to create natural details. Tattooed eyebrows are often darker, thicker, and have a blueish, solid appearance.
