Microblading is a beauty procedure that many beauty enthusiasts are excited about. And who wouldn't be? Beautiful fuller-looking eyebrows without drawing them on every day will save many women the hassle.
But what is microblading and what does the procedure imply? Read on to find out!
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique that is used to shape or create the illusion of fuller brows. With this method, you can create a variety of different looks: you can choose to shape your brows with a light finish or create the illusion of a beautiful bold brow, depending on your face shape, hair color or skin tone.
Don't worry though, the procedure hurts much less than you think and, because this is a semi-permanent procedure, the results will not last forever, allowing you to experiment different looks in the long run.
The first thing to know about Microblading is, the process is not as easy as putting on makeup. When you choose to undergo this procedure, you have to be aware of the risks as well and be willing to commit to them.
The risks involved may pertain to your health since the procedure involves breaking the skin. You are also at risk for infection or allergic reactions to the pigment used for microblading. Thus, caution is a must before, during, and after the treatment.
Aside from the health risks, you also run the risk of not liking the results of messing it up. This is why it's important to speak to a microblading professional, and only undergo the procedure when you are comfortable and confident with their skills.
Naturally, the very first step to prepare for the microblading process is to make sure that your skin is free of makeup, oil, or dirt.
Also, before anything, the brow area needs to be cleaned and numbed for the treatment. Make sure your microblading specialist cleans the area with a disinfectant wipe and sterilizes the tools and other items they will be using.
It's very important to clean and disinfect your eyebrow area before the treatment. Since microblading means you will puncture the skin, you will need to make sure your microblading professional sterilizes both your skin and the tools, to minimize the risk of infection.
Another helpful tip: Avoid drinking alcohol at least 48 hours before the procedure because alcohol thins the blood.
Once the area has been pre-numbed and the numbing cream wiped off, the next step is testing it if it's numbed enough: a good microblading specialist may pinch or press the skin with the fingernail, gently, not too hard.
An experienced microblading professional would start at the end of your eyebrow and work all the way up to the middle, making sure to follow the natural direction of the eyebrows. You should feel the strokes consistent for the duration of the microblading process, that can take up to 30 or 40 minutes. It all depends on how full you want your brows to look.
After the procedure is done, you should definitely follow any aftercare instructions your microblading specialist will mention to you and, preferably, schedule a follow up appointment about 4 - 6 weeks after, just to make sure everything is on order and you are happy with the results!
