Need to Know About Eyebrow Microblading
When you've tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, and stencil at Sephora and your brows are still off fleek, microblading—a more permanent solution to thin brows—is the last-ditch-effort treatment that promises to change your brow life. The face tattoo technique isn't as scary as it sounds.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows.
Microblading is a form of tattooing
Unlike a regular tattoo, microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine, draw hair-like strokes with the tool to mimic natural hairs in brows. Even though it's not as deep as the regular tattoo, it's still a tattoo because pigment is implanted under the skin.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.
The results can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
