Eyebrow Microblading refers to the semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that creates the illusion of fuller eyebrows. Although microblading is a convenient alternative to eyebrow gels and pencils, these treatments can be quite expensive ranging from $500 to $1,600, depending on the clinic you opt for.
Here are a few pieces of information to keep in mind before visiting the nearest microblading clinic in your area.
How is Microblading Done?
Eyebrow microblading makes use of a very precise tool, similar to a pen with a sloped blade and 10-12 tiny needles at the very end. These needles do not penetrate your skin, only touching it lightly on its’ surface.
The needle implants featherlike strokes on the epidermis of your skin, creating fine, realistic hair on your eyebrows.
How Many Sessions of Microblading Are Required?
Typically, two sessions will do the trick and get you the desired results.
After the first session, you may be left with minor imperfections (such as ink out of place), which may need fixing in the second session.
The second session is the touch-up session, usually held four weeks after the first.
How Long Does One Session Take?
Eyebrow Microblading usually takes more than 2 hours per session, so make sure you schedule an appointment on a day when you have enough time on your hands.
Are Microblading and Permanent Tattoos the Same?
Unlike a permanent eyebrow tattoo that penetrates deep into the layers of your skin, eyebrow microblading only touches the outside surface of your skin.
The results of microblading are also far more lifelike than those from a permanent tattoo because a hand-held tool is used with precision, as opposed to an electrical gadget (as is the case with a permanent tattoo).
The results from microblading are also not permanent and last roughly between 12 to 18 months.
Does Microblading Hurt?
Even if microblading does not require as deep a penetration of the skin as a permanent eyebrow tattoo procedure would, it is still a tattoo on your face and will be painful to an extent.
Most tattoo artists apply numbing cream before starting the process, making it more comfortable for the client.
Can I Be Allergic to Microblading?
Some people may have sensitive skin that can react to the pigments used during eyebrow microblading. You should always ask your artist to perform a patch test prior to actually starting the treatment to get rid of any such concerns.
If You Don’t Like Your Brows, Can They Be Fixed?
Although it is pretty unlikely that an artist will mess up your eyebrows, given how the process requires so much precision, if on the off-chance you don’t like the way your eyebrows turn out, you can always wait for certain strokes to fade away during the healing period. You can then schedule an appointment to get the changes you want made
