Today, full and well-defined eyebrows are something many of us strive to achieve for our appearances. Microblading allows you to enhance the shape and fullness of the eyebrows for incredibly long-lasting and natural-looking results. Whether you have naturally thin brows, have lost your eyebrow hair due to medical or congenital conditions, or simply want to enhance the appearance of your brows, microblading can be an extremely effective and rewarding procedure.
What is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the eyebrows. Tiny hair-like incision strokes are made along your existing eyebrow area and filled with pigment that is designed to match the existing hairs. Microblading is different than traditional eyebrow tattooing because the pigment is implanted closer to the surface of the skin. This makes semi-permanent, more natural looking results.
Microblading is also performed using a very fine scalpel rather than a tattooing machine. This allows for much finer strokes that mimic the appearance of hairlines. With traditional tattooing, strokes appeared much thicker and darker.
What are the benefits of microblading?
Microblading presents patients with several benefits, including:
- Semi-permanent results: Spend less time fussing over your eyebrows during your regular routine, but have the peace-of-mind knowing that the results will gradually fade over the next few years. Touch-up treatments can be performed to maintain longer-lasting results.
- Natural-looking: Microblading is designed to achieve results that look completely natural. The hair-like strokes help to refine your brow shape and create fullness without sacrificing a natural-look.
- Minimal discomfort: No anesthesia is necessary during your microblading treatment. Most patients describe the sensation as “little scratches.” A numbing cream can be applied to the brow area beforehand if your skin is especially sensitive.
How long does a microblading treatment take?
A single microblading treatment session could take up to two hours. It is important not to rush the process in order to achieve the most natural outcomes. However, once your treatment is complete, you are free to return to your normal routine without any downtime.
How long do results last after microblading?
Your microblading results can last for up to three full years with touch-up and maintenance treatments every six months. If you want to go back to your natural brow appearance, the pigment will gradually fade over time on its own.
