What Is Eyebrow Microblading?
Many of us will be familiar with the everyday morning drudgery of drawing the perfect brows. Eyebrows can transform one’s face and are thus arguably one of our most important facial features. Yet, not everyone is blessed with thick and nicely shaped brows. Most of us often spend a lot of time filling in our brows every morning and even so, it is not unusual for many to end up with less-than-ideal-looking brows. Fortunately, eyebrow microblading is now a viable alternative to this drill.
Eyebrow microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, is a relatively new beauty procedure where eyebrows are tattooed onto the face by a trained beauty therapist. This method achieves a semi-permanent and natural-looking result as opposed to the stale-looking eyebrows that eyebrow tattooing often creates. Eyebrow microblading is perfect for anyone who wants to fully recreate, define, re-define, conceal gaps, or fill-in overly plucked brows.
Microblading: The procedure
Numbing cream is first applied to the eyebrows and the skin surrounding to minimize discomfort and pain. The beauty therapist will also map out a set of brows that suits you prior to microblading. A very fine blade is then used to make small, superficial cuts in your skin in and along the brows, where pigments are then deposited into. The cuts resemble actual strands of hair, thus giving your brows a fuller and natural-looking appearance.
The entire procedure takes approximately 2 hours to complete. You can expect to experience slight pain or discomfort during the procedure – some may feel it more than others. The pain is generally bearable since numbing cream has already been applied to the area.
Results and Aftercare
While microblading is a safe procedure when done by a trained therapist.
It is also normal for the brows to look dark in the beginning. After 1 – 2 weeks, however, the pigment will fade and become more natural-looking as the wound heals. The results may also vary for different people. For instance, the colour pigments may fade more for some, depending on one’s skin condition and metabolism rate.
After the procedure, while you should still shower, try not to wet your brows and do apply aftercare cream for 5 – 7 days. This is to protect the pigment and keep the area clean. Your eyebrows will itch and form scabs, but you should refrain from picking them. While the healing process may differ for everyone, touch-up sessions are often recommended 40 days after the first appointment.
Your new brows are likely to last you a good 2 – 3 years after healing. Considering this, while eyebrow microblading may be costly, it is certainly a worthy investment for those who want to wake up to wow brows.
