Eyebrows and Microblading

Eyebrows are criminally underrated; they provide the bulk of your emotional expressiveness, they also govern the apparent shape of your eyes, and play a large role in the framing of your face as a whole.

These are such important responsibilities for such a tiny and finely detailed pair of hair patches. Yet it’s so easy for eyebrows to go wrong—light-colored or thin eyebrows can be difficult to see, while various conditions can cause eyebrows to fade away. Meanwhile, overly thick eyebrows can be considered unattractive. All these make managing your eyebrows an important and time-consuming aspect of makeup.

If you’re looking for a more permanent and convenient solution than constantly maintaining your eyebrows, and one that looks far more natural than other permanent makeup solutions, microblading is a great option for you.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a permanent makeup technique that produces far more realistic results than standard eyebrow tattoo-based techniques.

Microblading employs a tool that resembles a pen, which terminates at a nib composed of several very fine needles. This nib is used to precisely create tiny incisions on the skin in the eyebrow area.

These incisions are performed in extremely fine strokes that simulate the appearance of eyebrow hairs. They don’t go very deep into the skin, just piercing the outermost epidermal layer and dipping into the dermis. With each stroke, the microblading pen deposits tiny amounts of pigment, which fill the fine cuts that the pen makes.

The result? An array of fine lines right on the skin underneath your eyebrows, which fill in the gaps for hairless or thinly-haired patches. Microblading creates results that look just like the real thing.

How Long Does Microblading Last?

For most people, microblading lasts 1-2 years by itself, but it can last indefinitely with care and follow-up touch ups.

Some factors affect the longevity of a microblading procedure. For example, people with oily skin will have their eyebrows fade away faster, with a touch up needed at the 1-year mark.

Microblading leaves no scars or discoloration, so simply leaving your eyebrows alone will have them disappear naturally.

Does It Hurt?

Microblading is carried out under local anesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. At most, you may feel a scratching sensation or a sense of pressure from the needles.

How Do I Prepare for Microblading?

As microblading is a delicate process, you should stop any eyebrow treatments or treatments that affect the skin on your face prior to the procedure.

In particular, one month before the procedure, stop any retinol treatments that you’re taking.

2 weeks before your microblading session, you should avoid tanning salons (whether tanning beds or treatments) and direct sunlight. You should also avoid facials and peels.

A week before your session, you should not have any electrolysis sessions, nor should you wax, thread, or tweeze your eyebrows.

What Is The Procedure?

Before your procedure, your microblading specialist will clean your eyebrows and thread them, in order to get the desired shape that they’ll use as a reference for where they’ll use the pen.

Then, they’ll apply a local anesthetic in the form of a topical cream, which usually consists of one or more numbing agents like lidocaine, benzocaine, and tetracaine. This usually takes 30-40 minutes to start working. While the anesthetic is working its magic, your specialist will measure and draw around your eyebrows.

Once the cream has started working, your specialist will begin the actual microblading. They’ll make gentle strokes on the desired areas, piercing just into the dermis and injecting the pigments. The length of the procedure is determined by how “thick” you want your semipermanent eyebrows to look, and it can take anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours.

Once it’s done, you can expect to be up and about immediately! Your specialist will provide you with some aftercare guidelines that you should follow, of course. For example, you shouldn’t wash your face for 2 days, and avoid swimming, or sweating from exercise and sun exposure for 7 to 10 days after the procedure.

 You can expect there to be a follow-up session in 6 to 8 weeks to fix any areas that didn’t get colored properly.
