Too busy to fill in your brows every morning? Consider microblading! This long-lasting method of enhancing your eyebrows can help to simplify your morning routine while leaving you looking and feeling great. Completely non-surgical and minimally-invasive, this cosmetic option will not take you away from your normal daily life.
What Exactly Is Microblading and How Does It Work?
Microblading gives your brows a full and flattering look by using a manually applied form of semi-permanent tattoo. This technique allows for fine hairs to be drawn in a natural pattern. Ink colors can be customized to match your existing brows and applied in varying shades to add to the authentic feel.
A typical tattoo is applied deep within the layers of the skin. Microblading, on the other hand, is done closer to the surface. The results will last anywhere from one to two years. Annual appointments can keep your brows looking their very best.
What to Expect with Microblading
When you come in for your appointment, we will discuss your goals for the treatment and discuss shades. Specialized tools are used to measure the area around your brows. We will take into account the shape and symmetry of your face, as well as your facial features.
Once we have decided on a course of action, the actual microblading can begin. Very light strokes are used to implant the pigment in the predetermined areas. Every stroke will result in a very fine line that allows the ink to settle into the skin. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for six to eight weeks after your initial session. This appointment is necessary to fill in any areas where the ink did not settle properly. A darker pigment can also be applied if desired.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
This technique can be very useful for nearly anyone who is currently taking the time to fill in their brows with a pencil every morning. There are some people who will be advised to avoid this treatment, at least temporarily. These people include women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Certain medications and medical conditions also may exclude you from being able to have this procedure done. Your health history will be discussed during your initial visit.
