Microfeathering – The New Microblading Trend
The more minimal variation of microblading known as Microfeathering has started to see a recent increase in popularity – both among our Troy, MI area patients and a number of noteworthy Hollywood A-listers. Similar to microblading, Microfeathering is designed as a solution for people who already have thick, full brows, but still have gaps that need to be filled.
After visiting high-end Beverly Hills-based beauty studios for the treatment, celebrities such as Mandy Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow have taken to social media to sing the praises of the new, semi-permanent Microfeathering technique. But you don’t have to go all the way to Beverly Hills to reap the benefits of Microfeathering. All it takes is an appointment at AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area.
Unlike traditional microblading, where eyebrows can be completely redesigned from scratch, the intention of Microfeathering is to replicate the brow’s natural hair growth. The end result is a soft, “feathered brow” appearance that looks completely natural.
In this article, we will discuss the differences between Microfeathering and microblading, both available at the AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area.
Microfeathering vs Microblading
The main difference between Microfeathering and microblading is the surface area being treated. The fullness and shape created by microblading is the product of applying pigment to the entirety of the brow area. For this reason, microblading is popular among people with very thin brows, freeing them from constantly having to draw their brows by hand. Microblading is also popular among individuals with alopecia and/or who have lost their eyebrows to cancer treatments.
Conversely, Microfeathering is designed for people whose eyebrows are naturally more full. Named after a makeup technique known as the “Feathered Brow,” Microfeathering is intended to accentuate the client’s natural eyebrows, rather than create new eyebrows entirely.
Most cases of Microfeathering are performed on parts of the brow that are already surrounded with natural hair. The treatment exists mainly to fill in areas of the eyebrows lacking in volume, while still looking completely natural.
The natural look of Microfeathering is achieved by closely matching the ink used with the color of the patients’ natural eyebrows, as well as mimicking the growth patterns that occur within the eyebrows.
Preparing for Microfeathering
For six to eight weeks before a Microfeathering appointment, our Troy, MI area patients must refrain from performing any and all types of hair removal from their brow area. This includes threading, tweezing, and waxing. This allows for any remaining sparse patches of the brow to be effectively filled in with Microfeathering.
The results of Microfeathering are so seamless, it is virtually impossible for the naked eye to tell the difference between the microfeather strokes and the eyebrow’s real hair. Patients simply appear as though their brows are fuller and more symmetrical than ever.
