Over the course of the past year, the mastery of microblading has taken the world by storm. From silver screen stars to beauty bloggers across the web, the semi-permanent procedure is giving women enviable eyebrows with minimal upkeep. Here are the top 4 things you should know about microblading.
1. The results are semi-permanent, often lasting between 1-3 years. As time goes on, you can expect the pigment to fade gradually, which allows you to modify your brows as trends change. To keep your eyebrows looking fresh and natural, an annual touch-up appointment is recommended.
2. You may experience minor discomfort. Most clients compare the sensation to a deep scratch. To ease any discomfort, a topical numbing cream is applied before and during the procedure. Redness around your eyebrows may occur directly following the procedure but typically subsides within hours.
3. Flaking is normal. The entire healing process typically takes about 4 to 6 weeks, with most of the healing occurring in the first 7 days. In the days directly following the procedure, you may notice itching and flaking around the eyebrows. It is also common for fading to occur after the initial appointment, which is why it is important to come in for your 4-week touch-up.
4. Be prepared to get noticed! Nothing makes a statement like natural and beautifully shaped eyebrows. A perfectly filled and sculpted pair of brows can accent the face in more ways than one, so don’t be surprised when strangers express their admiration for your impeccably natural looking, completely enviable eyebrows.
