With all the hype about the different eyebrow treatments available, we are sure that you must have heard about microblading. Quite a few celebrities have been showing off their results on Instagram nowadays, and they are gorgeous, indeed!

If you are looking for an effective way to get beautiful, prominent eyebrows and are curious about the microblading process, you are at the right place. This blog is going to tell you all about microblading.

What is Microblading?

Some call it a beauty treatment, and some call it an art. While it is both, we can define it as a process which makes your eyebrows appear fuller, thick, and lush. In this process, an expert brow artist uses a very fine tool which is shaped like a pen and has a sloped blade at the tip. This blade has 10 to 12 small needles at the end which are not designed to penetrate the skin but lightly scratch its surface, only.

Using these fine needles, the expert applies featherweight strokes to implant a medical grade pigment into your skin’s epidermis (top) layer. This action creates precise and realistic strokes which look like natural hair and add beautiful volume to your eyebrows.

Microblading differs from your tattooing because it does not penetrate the deeper layers of your skin. It is also not permanent – the color stays till about 18 months. The hair strokes are much finer than those in a tattoo and look way more natural too. Nevertheless, it is often called a “semi-permanent tattoo technique.”

What is the Microblading Eyebrows Treatment Like?

The microblading treatment can be used to create any type of eyebrows, from a natural lighter look to a darker, thicker and bolder one.

This is how the treatment works:

  1. The specialist first consults with the client to determine the shape which is best for them. She will also select a color that goes well with the person’s skin undertone and their natural hair color.
  2. After taking all the pre-treatment precautions, the brow area is cleaned. Then it is numbed to ensure that the person has a comfortable experience.
  3. As opposed to using a tattoo machine, the specialist uses a small handheld tool for manually drawing tiny hair strokes to achieve the required look.
  4. After completing the drawing, an ointment such as the Eyebrow Doctor Aftercare is applied to aid the healing process.

The whole process can take as little as 30 to 40 minutes, but it eventually depends on the type of style you have chosen. It is advisable for the clients to follow all the post-treatment instructions carefully so that they are not inconvenienced in any way. They should also schedule a follow-up appointment within the first two months so that they can get little tweaks if they feel the need. This way, they can be fully satisfied with the results.

The charges for this treatment are not crazy expensive. Also, depending on your skin type, choice of products and lifestyle, the results can stay from one to three years. Consult your specialist about this so that you can be aware of things like the fact that the ink used in this process is more likely to fade quickly on oily skin.

What About the Side Effects?

If your brow artist is experienced and trustworthy, there’s no need to worry about having any major side effects. However, if you neglect the correct after- and post-care procedures, you might get an infection. So, don’t take the post-care lightly and take all the necessary steps and precautions as advised by your artist.

Also, make sure that you select the right artist as not all of them who are out there are trained or qualified enough (some of them have only taken a two-day course!). Your brow artist should be a specialist and should be aware of all the latest techniques and technology along with all the necessary precautions. To find the right artist, you can go through the reviews, examine the before-and-after photos of their clients, and read the testimonials.
