Microblading is a semipermanent cosmetic tattoo procedure that fills in sparse eyebrows by placing pigment into the skin. The technician uses a microblade, a hand tool consisting of a tight needle grouping of 7–18 needles. These needles are so thin they mimic the look of brow hairs by creating thin scratches on the skin, into which pigment is then deposited. An actual blade or scalpel should never be used, as they are considered medical devices and are not legally allowed to be used by estheticians in this process.
Each state has different rules and regulations. Some states require a tattoo license, while other states require training and certification under an esthetician or cosmetology license. It is not uncommon to apprentice before working on the public. In all states, proper training with hands-on experience should be obtained. Hands-on experience includes live models as well as practice skins.
Microblading is different from traditional tattooing in that each hair stroke is drawn in one by one, creating a more natural look than solidly filled eyebrow tattoos. During the initial microblading procedure, the skin will be saturated with pigment and will swell. As the skin heals, it may reject some of the pigment. A second appointment will be necessary to fill in those areas that show less color. Once the tissue has completely healed, in about 4–8 weeks, the first touchup appointment can occur. To keep microblading fresh and maintain desired results, your client should return every two to three years.
Each state has varying rules and regulations. As long as you are working within your state scope of practice and also carry an esthetic or cosmetology license, you are eligible for coverage.
