7 Microblading Treatment Facts You Need To Know

Microbladed eyebrows are becoming a popular trend on social media and let me tell you the results can appear phenomenal! It's no wonder that many women are switching to Microblading as a alternative to cosmetics. But how much do you really know about Microblading and what exactly does it entail? Read on to find out 7 Microblading treatment facts you need to know.

 

1. Eyebrows Are Sisters, Not Twins

Our body is not symmetrical and our eyebrows are no exception but that's okay because our eyebrows look best as sisters and not twins. Microblading can give you the results that look as natural and precise as they can be. The microblading needle gives the technician more control to create crisp, hairlike strokes that look almost identical to the real hair. The results are generally excellent as every effort is made to avoid asymmetry, but since our faces are not symmetrical, adjustments may be needed during follow-up session to correct any unevenness.

2. Microblading Is Semi-Permanent

Microblading is the process of inserting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin and is a form of tattooing, but the pigment does not sink into the skin as deep as a traditional tattoo. This pigment is semi-permanent and will fade over time. But typically the results last approximately 1-1.5 years, depending on skin type, age, and if you have done proper aftercare.

3. Microblading Is A Solution For Several Eyebrow Imperfections

If you were not blessed with fully grown eyebrows, Microblading is a great solution for you. It helps to fill in sparse areas in your eyebrows with hairlike strokes to represent real hair. If your eyebrows have been over plucked and the hairs are not growing back, Microblading can fix this concern as it common in most women. The major benefit that most women can agree is you can wake up with beautiful eyebrows in the morning without makeup.

4. You May Experience Discomfort, Scabbing, And Itchiness

During the Microblading treatment, you will feel some degree of pain, depending on how well you can tolerate pain.  A generous amount of numbing cream will help numb the treated area and mitigate the pain; however everyone will respond differently to the anesthetic. It may hurt more to you than others. The feeling can be described as “light cat scratches” and after the procedure, the area will feel as though you have a light sunburn. After 24 hours, you will feel intense itchiness, but it is crucial that you do not touch or scratch your eyebrows because this could cause an adverse effect.

In the following days of the healing process, the eyebrows will continue to appear dark and a slight scabbing will appear. Do not pick the scabs as this can damage the skin, and affect the outcome of the microbladed area. After 2 weeks, the color will appear lighter and more natural and the skin surrounding the microbladed area will appear opaque or milky. This is because the skin from within is still healing even though the surface of the skin is healed.

5. Microblading Is Not For Everyone

It is important to understand that Microblading is not suitable for everyone. If you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding, diabetic, and have a history of heart problems, skin irritation, uncontrolled blood pressure and poor general health, Microblading is not right of you. Prior to your Microblading appointment, it is crucial to note there is no alcohol consumption within 24 hours, no Advil or blood thinners within 72 hours, no Botox within 2 weeks before and after the procedure, and no facials or chemical peels within 2 weeks before and after the procedure.

6. Microblading Is A Personal Choice And An Investment

Microblading is a personal choice and should not be taken lightly. It is a costly procedure and there are many risk and complications involved. While our goal is to provide service of your satisfaction to the best of our ability, we do highly recommend clients do their research, understand the procedure, possible risks and aftercare needs, and compare different technician's work.

7. Your Eyebrows Are Delicate

After the Microblading treatment, your eyebrows will become very sensitive and delicate. It will take approximately 7-14 days for the eyebrows to heal and about 1 month for the color to fully set, but the healing process is different for everyone. Proper aftercare is highly important to achieve a long-lasting effect on your eyebrows and to avoid risks and complications that may occur due to lack of maintenance.
