No. Even if the techniques are similar, the authorised pigments are different and limited since they are used on the face. The insertion of minerals pigments is not as deep compared to a tattoo since they are targeting the upper layers of the skin.
Different factors affect how long a semi-permanent makeup lasts: not only the quality of the pigments used, but also sun exposure, sun protection used as well as skin regeneration that varies from one person to another.
On an average, it lasts between 2 to 4 years, however, it can get lighter over time and correct with a simple touch up.
The sensitivity to the procedure varies from one person to another. It can cause some discomfort that disappears as soon as the procedure is finished, although, often not anywhere near the pain the person was anticipating.
Luckily, there are now many creams that can be prescribed by your doctor so the technician can use that to reduce any discomfort from the procedure.

Therefore, it is far more accessible to mimic the exact direction of the clients natural hair growth.

This process is repeated 2-4 times over the entire brow, filling any exposed gaps each time till the perfect, natural looking eyebrow has been built. With microblading, a second appointment is needed 4-8 weeks after the initial treatment to fill any gaps that can appear during the healing process.
In most cases, yes, because they are only small superficial lesions.
