Everything You Should Know About Microblading

Are you tired of your thin eyebrows that were subject to too much harsh plucking? Maybe you wish that your eyebrows were darker without having to fill them in on a daily basis. The good news is that with new semi-permanent makeup trends, you can get eyebrows that are well done and perfectly shaped every day. You won’t even have to sharpen your brow pencil to help them along. Microblading can be a great experience with tremendous benefit, but you have to know what to expect.

Before you sign up for services, here is everything you need to know about microblading!

Choose your salon professionals carefully

Microblading is essentially a form of semi-permanent tattooing that can make your brows appear thicker and fuller. Because of the permanent nature of the procedure, you need to make sure that your professional knows how to microblade successfully. After all, microblading can last up to eighteen months.

Ask about their training and for any before and after photos they might have. You should also ask to see their certification. This research will give you a better idea of whether you can trust this person to bring your brows to perfection. Remember that you often get what you pay for. Choosing the cheapest professional to practice your microblading may not give you the outcome you were hoping for.

Microblading isn’t as painful as it sounds

The process of microblading involves placing tiny scratches around the eyebrows and filling them with ink. This certainly sounds painful, but you won’t feel much of it with the numbing gel that will set on your brows. You may feel a slight pressure in that area and some minor discomfort, but it will be relatively painless overall!  

The process does take time

Make sure that you set aside the entire afternoon if you are heading into a microblading session. You won’t want to rush perfection, so prepare to spend about two to three hours in the chair with your artist. They must spend time creating the perfect shape and meticulously placing each new “strand” of hair for your brows. This isn’t a process that can happen in an instant if you want to have eyebrows that are well done.

You will have some irritation after the session

If you have ever seen a new tattoo, you know that there is definitely a healing process that it needs to go through before it becomes beautiful. You will have some redness and irritation around the eyebrows when you leave your session. However, it shouldn’t be too terribly noticeable. You can help keep irritation to a minimum by avoiding sunlight and continuously applying moisturizer to your skin.

When you’re ready to get your eyebrows professionally done, you need to find an experienced permanent makeup professional.
