Microblading looks natural and can last a year or more with regular touch-ups. However, finding a skilled technician who follows strict health guidelines is important.
Redness, swelling, and scabbing are common in the first days after a procedure. Avoid picking at them because it can cause scarring and prolong healing.
Enhanced Natural Appearance
The microblading process creates a natural look that looks more realistic than penciled-on makeup. It’s also a good alternative for thinning or balding brow hairs.
Another benefit of getting your brows microbladed is that they’re completely waterproof. This is a tremendous relief for folks who sweat or swim a lot. So, you can still wear your favorite swimsuit to the beach or your workout clothes to the gym and not worry about your brows washing off or streaking. This is especially beneficial for persons who live in humid conditions and wish to avoid the continual strain of applying brow makeup that is easily washed off.
More Time To Spend On Yourself
If you’re used to spending a good amount of time each day penciling in or filling in your eyebrows, microblading can give you back that precious time. A session takes about two hours, but you’ll save much time in the long run since you don’t have to worry about reapplying makeup or smudging your brows.
The technique uses a small blade to make tiny, hair-like incisions on your skin and then deposits pigment into those incisions. Hiring a skilled specialist that adheres to rigorous health regulations is critical. Look for reviews and ask about the technician’s training. Also, ensure they use new needles and clean space for every client.
The pigment won’t wash away like a tattoo, but it will fade over time as your body pushes it out of the first layers of your skin. You’ll also need to follow after-care instructions, such as not using products that contain water or chlorine on your brows. Also, if you’re prone to allergic reactions, always insist on an allergy patch test before going under the needle.
No More Smudges Or Smears
Microblading does not penetrate your skin and deposit ink. Instead, your brow artist creates hair-like strokes in the top layer of your skin with pigment. These strokes fade over time and require touch-ups to maintain a natural appearance.
The scabs that form after your procedure are natural and part of the healing process, but if you pick at them or apply too much pressure, it can cause an infection in the area. If your scabs grow swollen or elevated, have yellow-tinged drainage, or continue to scab for more than two weeks, contact your brow artist immediately, as these are indicators of an infection requiring antibiotic treatment.
The good news is that even if your scabs do not heal completely, they can be removed with at-home treatments like baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. However, leaving the removal to a professional is best to avoid infection or permanent scarring.
No More Concerns About Your Brows
Whether you have naturally thin eyebrows or thick ones that are unruly and difficult to control, Microblading can give them the frame they need. It can also fill in gaps, add extra length or width, and help reshape your brows.
During the appointment, a technician will draw a beautiful frame that compliments your face structure and personal style before applying a topical anesthetic to numb the area for over 20 minutes. They will then use a fine needle to create hair-like strokes on your eyebrows.
While the process isn’t completely painless, it is very tolerable. You may experience some slight scabbing, redness and mild swelling afterward.
Following your technician’s instructions is important to ensure the best results.
