Have you ever considered microblading? Well, you should if you have thin eyebrows and you want to give it a fuller look by giving it a semi-permanent fill. Microblading is a rather new procedure. It pertains to a cosmetic tattooing procedure that makes the eyebrows look thicker. It’s not a permanent tattoo though as the coloring may only last up to three years. If you want to know more about microblading, below are a few more facts that you need to know about it.
- Like getting a tattoo, microblading is a procedure that uses a hand-held tool with needles.
Microblading will break into your skin and with that said, its success will rely greatly on the technician who will perform the procedure. If the technician is untrained, infections may possibly arise. More so if the conditions are unhygienic.
- The results of the procedure may vary.
Based on the before and after pictures that are circulating on the internet and elsewhere, microblading can definitely add oomph to the way you look. But in reality, the results of the procedure may vary for every person. A lot of factors may come into play, such as the amount of natural eyebrow on your face, your skin type, the pigment used, and the pressure and incision used during the procedure. How you take care of your skin and eyebrows will also have an effect.
- Microblading is semi-permanent.
Being semi-permanent, you’ll enjoy the new look of your eyebrow for up to three years. That’s great news if the procedure was done very well, but bad news if it wasn’t. If there’s anything that goes wrong during the procedure, it can’t be erased or covered up easily. Worse, you might have to undergo other procedures if you can’t possibly live with the damage incurred. This is why it is important for the technician who will do the procedure is well-trained and knowledgeable.
- Microblading takes time to heal.
Like most cosmetic procedures, healing is required before the full benefit is seen. During the healing process, your eyebrows should not be in contact with water. You also can’t use ointments or makeup for some time. And more importantly, you must stay out of the sun at all times. If ever scabs are formed, don’t lift them off or you may lose some of the ink added to your eyebrows. Just let them fall off naturally.
- Follow-up appointments may be necessary.
While the effect of microblading is set for three years, there are instances wherein you have to go back to your technician for follow-up appointments due to fading and for touch-ups. Taking care of your eyebrows is very important, much more now that you have used microblading to make it look perfect.
These are some of the fact that you need to know about microblading so you can easily decide whether it’s for you or not. Consult with an expert before you submit yourself to the procedure. Determine if the technician is knowledgeable enough to know what shape of the eyebrow will look best on you.
