What Is Pixel Blading And Why Is It Different?

If you are getting married this summer you may be keen to get some microblading in Hull, especially if you are sufficiently well-informed about the topic to know that you need to start the process well in advance of the big day.

However, if you are going to have it done soon, you might have heard about different kinds of microblading and wonder what they all are, how they differ and what the effects look like in each case.

An example of this is pixel blading. This might sound like something to do with computer graphics, but is in fact a slight variation on normal microblading.

According to Chez Soi, pixel blading is a “revolutionary” technique, which uses two lengths of blade rather than one. This, it tells us somewhat dramatically, “allows the artist to tap pigment into the skin allowing a pixelated appearance instead of slicing the client’s skin, like microblading”.

The use of the word “slicing” may make microblading sound less like a way to make your eyebrows look great and more like something from a horror film, but it has the same effects, adding pigment in a pixelated fashion to give the appearance of fuller eyebrows and thus undoing the visual effects of thinning, shortening, asymmetry or anything you might want to hide, such as a scar.

According to PMU Hub, the one notable advantage pixel blading can offer is for people with oily skin and larger pores. By contrast, those with dry skin get the best results from microblading.

The extent to which ‘slicing’ takes place is simply to create very shallow but defined grooves in your skin that pigment ink can be added to. It really isn’t a big deal for most patients and any extra sensitivity caused by the process is short-lived.

What the above does show, however, is that there is more than one way to create the effects that microblading can offer. Contact us today to see what will work best for you.
