If you are forever working to maintain your eyebrows so that they have a perfect arch, great shape and full volume, you may be interested in learning more about microblading. Perhaps you’ve heard of this technique but are unsure just what it entails. It’s actually quite different from past procedures such as permanent makeup or tattooing. It’s a modern, state-of-the-art procedure that offers tons of benefits. Read on to discover what microblading can do for you, what to expect and whether you might be a good candidate.
Microblading is a semi-permanent kind of tattooing for your eyebrows that is done by hand. The pigment used can be mixed in order to match your skin tone and current hair color. It’s not permanent and will fade over time. However, it also looks far more natural than fake eyebrows of the past. It’s important to find a professional who is well-trained and skilled, as this procedure is very much like applying a tattoo. There is definitely an art to microblading that gives a finished result that looks beautiful and natural.
How It Works
When microblading is performed, pigment is implanted into the area between the epidermis and dermis of your skin. Unlike traditional tattooing, this process isn’t done with a motorized device. Each stroke is done by hand to simulate the look of natural brow hair. In addition, pigment is used rather than ink. The length of your results will depend upon your skin type and your daily skincare routine, among other things. As the pigment lightens, you’ll notice that it simply begins to fade. You won’t experience a spilling effect as can happen when ink is used. Therefore, the strokes will remain crisp-looking.
What to Expect
It all starts with a consultation, during which the practitioner can analyze your face shape, eyebrow placement, bone structure and other such elements in order to determine design. Next, pigment choice can be made. You will have input on all of these decisions, guided by your microblading artist. Once your treatment is completed, you can confidently leave the office.
Most people make perfectly suitable candidates for this treatment. It may be just what you have been looking for to achieve the brows you desire.
