When you have a full schedule, taking time to apply makeup can interfere with your limited time. Having a naturally-polished look when you wake up can save time and energy, as well as your confidence when not wearing makeup. Microblading is one option for polishing your natural features for a care-free, flawless look.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a type of tattooing that improves the look of the eyebrows. With an artistic approach, it can create a naturally-full look by depositing pigments in the skin using extremely fine strokes, mimicking the look of individual hairs. It can be very difficult to find appropriately-colored brow products, so pigments can be matched to your natural hair color so it’s indistinguishable.
What Can Microblading Accomplish?
Microblading comes with many benefits. These include:
- Fuller-looking brows
- A more flattering arch and overall shape
- A more accurate color match
- Less time spent on brow grooming and makeup
Microblading can last for around 2 years, making it a worthwhile investment in your look. Many patients enjoy the naturally-polished result, especially in environments where they don’t wear makeup.
Who’s a Good Candidate for Microblading?
Microblading is an excellent option for patients who have thin, flat eyebrows and would like a fuller look. Additionally, patients who simply want to skip eyebrow makeup can benefit from microblading. To determine your candidacy, your aesthetician will consider factors like your skin type, natural hair color, and the most flattering eyebrow shape for your features. Patients who have certain skin types or allergies may not be good candidates for microblading. In order to get best results, you should make sure to follow your aesthetician’s detailed instructions for post-care and touch-up appointments.
What Happens During Microblading?
Before your microblading procedure, you’ll meet with your aesthetician to determine your goals and the look that’s most flattering for your face. Your aesthetician will create a framework for your new eyebrows and go over your care steps and expectations. Then, a specialized tool will be used to create tiny, hair-like cuts in the skin which pigment is deposited into. Once the intended shape is created, the area will be made ready for the rest of your day. You can return to your regular schedule afterward.
Microblading Results and Recovery
You’ll see results immediately after your microblading procedure, although you’ll experience some redness and sensitivity for a day or so. It’s normal for the pigment to be slightly discolored for a few days afterward as it settles into its final appearance. Your aesthetician may recommend you return for a touch-up appointment a couple weeks later to fully achieve your intended results. The best way to maintain your results is to avoid using brow products or oil-based makeup removers on the area. Most patients enjoy results for around 2 years before the pigment begins to noticeably fade. You can return for touch-ups as needed.
