The Difference between Permanent Makeup and Microblading

The Difference Between Permanent Makeup and Microblading

I get asked a lot of the time what is the difference between Permanent Makeup and Microblading?

Below I explain the differences between the 2 popular cosmetic procedures.


Microblading is a hand tool method that is not powered by a digital machine. Microblading doesn’t suit all skin types but can create a really nice, fine, fluffy hair stroke brow that lasts about 9 – 12 months before needing a maintenance treatment or ‘colour boost’

Permanent Makeup

Permanent Makeup uses a digital machine where the needle speed is driven by electricity and can be adjusted and controlled dependant on the area to be treated. With this method all skins can be treated, unlike with Microblading. The machine uses  disposable needles of different sizes to create different affects. Generally this method lasts 12 – 18 months before a colour boost is required.
