Eyebrow microblading should always be done by a certified technician, also usually a esthetician. There are many estheticians that specialize in eyebrow microblading, and you should make sure to ask questions to make sure they have plenty of experience and credentials. This process done right will make your eyebrow look natural and amazing.
Microblading can certainly help women who simply want to shape or fill in their brows, but it can also help women in other situations as well. Many light haired women have very faint eyebrows that are almost identical to their skin tone. Microblading can help create realistic-looking brows that are also more noticeable and attractive. Even women who have a medical condition such as alopecia that causes them to lose their hair can have eyebrows microbladed on that will look as good or better than their natural brows. This wide range of uses is part of what has made microblading so popular for eyebrow design.
Eyebrow microblading is a powerful and versatile procedure that can achieve nearly any desired results when applied by a skilled practitioner. Don't be shy in telling the esthetician exactly what you're looking for with your brows. Once you have told them exactly what you're looking for, they will use a pen to outline your brows and create the shape that you and them have decided on. The esthetician will create a custom color that will match your natural brows. This carefully designed custom color makes eyebrows appear thicker and fuller.
After you have checked the shape drawn into your eyebrows by the esthetician, it is time for the actual microblading process to begin. The tool used ingrains the ink into the skin deeply enough that it will last for a long time, but not as deep as a tattoo gun that creates permanent tattoos. This tool is small and handheld, which gives the esthetician greater control over the whole process.
Actual microblading is to create very small shallow cuts throughout both of your brows. This may sound painful. However, the cuts are so shallow and superficial that it is not particularly painful. It may even be totally painless for some people. It depends on the amount of ink you're getting applied to your brows. The feeling is similar to getting your eyebrows threaded.
Most estheticians will take a break in the middle of the procedure to let you look in the mirror and make sure you like the way everything is going. An experienced microblading professional will be happy to tweak the procedure slightly to make sure you have exactly the brows you are looking for. Once the procedure is over, you can check again to make sure that you like the results. The results of microblading are instant.
Now that you are familiar with the process of microblading, it is important that you educate yourself about the results of the procedure. The results of microblading usually last about 2 years, depending on the color you use and on your skin. Many women go in for a touch-up every 8 - 10 months, even if their eyebrows still look good. You do get a touch up automatically included in the process after four weeks.
Microbladed eyebrows are very low maintenance. However, you do need to keep your brows dry and avoid sweating profusely for 7 days. Many estheticians will direct their clients to use an antibiotic ointment like Neosporin for the first day after a microblading procedure. After this, it's a common practice to use Vaseline for a week. This will protect the sensitive area while it heals.
