What is microblading

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a great way to thicken your eyebrows and achieve your desired look. The process of microblading uses tiny blades to create realistic hair-like strokes on the brow area. The results of microblading last around 18 months, so you can enjoy your thicker eyebrows for a while! Thicker eyebrows can frame your face and enhance your overall look. If you are interested in microblading, please get in touch with us today to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to help you achieve the thicker eyebrows you have always wanted!

How Many Sessions of Microblading Are Required?

If you're looking to thicken your eyebrows, microblading may be the answer for you. This semi-permanent makeup technique can give you the fuller, thicker brows of your dreams. But how many sessions of microblading are required to achieve these results? Generally, most people will need at least two sessions of microblading spaced about six weeks apart to achieve their desired results.

This is because it can take some time for the pigment to settle into the skin and for the full effect of the treatment to be visible. Touch-ups may also be needed every few years to maintain your desired look. So if you're considering microblading as a way to get thicker, fuller brows, be prepared to commit to at least two sessions spaced a few weeks apart.

But the results are worth it! Touching up your micro-bladed eyebrows every few years will help maintain their look for years to come. The number of sessions required may vary from person to person.

How Long Does The Session Take?

Microblading is usually done in one two-hour session, but it can take up to three sessions to get the desired results. The initial appointment includes a consultation, during which the technician will assess your brows and devise a game plan. They'll also go over aftercare instructions with you before starting the procedure.

After microblading, your brows will look their best for about one year before they start to fade. Touchups are typically needed every six to twelve months to keep them looking fresh. The good news is that since the strokes are so fine, touchups are usually quick and easy.

Permanent Makeup

Are Microblading and Permanent Tattoos the Same?

Microblading and permanent tattoos are not the same. Permanent tattoos use a machine to insert ink into the skin, while microblading uses a handheld tool to make fine, shallow cuts in the skin. This allows the pigment to be deposited closer to the surface, resulting in a more natural-looking brow.

Permanent tattoos are also much darker than micro-bladed brows so they can look harsh and artificial. Microblading can be customized to match your natural hair color or go a few shades darker, giving you more control over the final look.

Does Microblading Hurt?

Microblading is relatively painless, but everyone's pain tolerance is different. The good news is that there are numbing creams and gels available to help minimize discomfort. If you're worried about pain, talk to your technician before the procedure. They can help you choose the right numbing cream or gel to make sure you're as comfortable as possible during the process.

What is the Healing Process Like?

The healing process for microblading is different for everyone, but it usually takes about two weeks for the brows to heal completely. During this time, you'll need to keep them clean and moisturized to prevent infection and speed up healing.

After the two-week mark, your brows will start to fade as they adjust to their new color. This is normal, and they will settle into their final shade within four to six weeks.

If you have any concerns about the healing process, talk to your technician or dermatologist. They can help you troubleshoot any problems and ensure your brows heal properly.

Can I Be Allergic to Microblading?

Allergies are always possible with any foreign substance, but the good news is that allergies to microblading are rare. If you're concerned about an allergic reaction, talk to your technician before the procedure.

If you have an allergic reaction, it will usually show up within 24 hours of the procedure. Symptoms include redness, swelling, and itchiness at the site of the tattoo. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your dermatologist or allergist for further instructions.

One Cannot Spot the Difference.

Regain Lost Eyebrows.

Overplucking is not always the reason behind sparse eyebrows. An illness or chemotherapy can also lead to eyebrow thinning. Microblading was originally founded for cancer patients who lost brow hair due to chemotherapy. Microblading helps them regain not only their eyebrows but also confidence.
