Beauty fads come and go. But one thing is consistent – eyebrows is life. Do you have zero brows? Blonde ultra-faint brows? Or might have lost hair due to alopecia? Or maybe just need some tweaking to help fill your arches? We got you covered.
What is microblading?
Microblading (also known as eyebrow embroidery) is the most natural approach to semi-permanent eyebrows. The procedure starts by utilizing tiny needles formed in a line at the tip of a hand-held tool. A blade is formed, which is impregnated with ink. The blade is used to deposit ink in small strokes, imitating the appearance of individual hairs.
Microblading creates a much more natural and authentic look as compared to eyebrow tattoos which have a darker and bolder outcome. The microblading artist follows the natural curve of the brow, blending in the drawn strokes with the actual hairs. The results typically last 12 to 18 months.
Here are some pros when you get microblading:
- Your eyebrows will not discolor over time. The hyper-realistic effect lasts for 12 to 18 months.
- It is perfectly safe, zero hazard. It does not penetrate the deeper layers of your skin since it only touches the middle of the dermis and the epidermis. So, don’t be scared. 😊
- It does not block your eyebrows’ natural growth.
- There is minimal scarring and pain, you won’t even notice it. Sure there will be a reddish result in your eyebrows but it won’t last a day.
How is microblading done?
To commence, the microblading artist measures your brow points and creates a shape that is according to the structure of your face and what you desire.
Once done finalizing the shape, the microblading artist will apply a numbing cream on your brows to lessen any discomfort or pain during the procedure.
After 10 to 15 minutes, the microblading artist begins to microblade hair strokes with light pressure. The microblading artist perfects the strokes and checks in with you if you are satisfied with how it looks. Instead of using a tattoo machine, a little hand-held tool will be utilized to manually draw hair strokes.
Then, your brows are set with pigment, brows wiped and clean, and voila! Perfect, natural-looking brows are born! You are ready to conquer!
At first, your new brows will look darker — this is normal, so don’t panic. Peeling might take place but expect your brows to be a few shades lighter in the coming weeks. The true color of your brows will take 4-6 weeks to appear.
After the appointment, you need to give your brows time to heal. Healing time depends on the person because everybody recovers differently and has different skin types. We are all unique, yes!
A few reminders though: Avoid scratching and picking at any scabs. And make sure to not wet your brows for about 10 days. Postpone activities that would cause too much sweating and avoid putting makeup on your eyebrows. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen as well. Take note that post-treatment care is essential and shouldn’t be disregarded.
A follow-up appointment with your microblading artist is recommended after 6-8 weeks to reinforce missing brow strokes, build color, and perfect the brow shape.
How long does microblading take and does it hurt?
Typically, the procedure takes about 2 hours.
Microblading has minimal to zero pain. You may feel a little discomfort but the numbing cream would do the trick. The amount of pain depends on your pain tolerance, the sensitivity of your skin, and other personal factors (e.g nervousness, or first-time going through permanent makeup procedure). Most clients end up saying it doesn’t hurt as much as they first thought it to be.
The bottom line is: Microblading is for those who want to have 24/7 brows. Those who want to feel and look beautiful all day! This procedure actually helps save time. You don’t have to go through shaping and drawing your brows day by day. It also doesn’t have to be a painful procedure if only done by experts in the industry such as our team. Microblading can be for everyone!
