Are you wondering what things you should know about microblading?
Microblading also known as microstroking, is an advanced brow embroidery technique, where a superfine row of needles, is used to create thin hair like marks on the skin, which last up to 18 months. But before you go for the procedure, there are some things you should know about microblading.
1 Full Brows
It is ideal for creating, a very fully and realistic looking brow and is becoming an increasingly popular method in permanent makeup. It is quite similar to hair stroke cosmetic tattoo and uses the machine method. However, the strokes are fine and are not implanted as deeply in the skin. This is one of the most important things you should know about microblading.
Cosmetic tattoo brows completed using the microblade or microstroke technique, are not as permanent. They are really to be considered as a semi-permanent answer and usually last around 12 months before a retouch is required.
3 The Procedure
During the treatment, after a brow consultation, the new brow shape outline is penciled on the brow area. Then the area is numbed and pigment is implanted into the skin, using very tiny needle strokes. They are built up into the new shape and the area is gradually made denser with lots of tiny hairstrokes, depending on the desired result. One, two or even three different shades of pigment can be used, creating a single, double or even triple layer brow tattoo. A typical appointment is around 2 hours, but the actual microblading only happens in the last 15 to 30 minutes.
4 After Microblading
The treated brows are usually a little tender after the procedure, and the color a little darker than the healed result. Don't worry, they are not so dark as to be unsightly. Normal activities, like work and socializing can generally be resumed the same day. Your brows will lighten considerably to a softer tone over the next 10-14 days. The first couple of days are the most important, because the inscisions are still open. Until they start to heal you want to make sure, you are not getting the brows wet or soaking them.
Eyebrows might just be the most important facial feature. The term “microblading” has been floating around the beauty industry for years, but many people still don’t know what it’s all about. Across the USA, the cost can vary from $500 to $1600, but it is worth the investment. When your brows are groomed and perfected, you look more awake and polished without using any extra makeup!
