A Guide to Microblading

Tina West March 28, 2019 0 comments 0

Brows are having a moment right now. In fact, social media feeds are full of perfectly-shaped brows and makeup counters offer a plethora of brow-enhancing products.

However, applying brow pencils, powders, and gels each and every morning can become tiring and time-consuming. As a result, many women are turning to microblading to achieve their brow goals.

If you want to up your brow game, with more permanent results, continue reading for our guide to micoblading.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a non-surgical treatment for eyebrow restoration. The technique is also referred to as eyebrow tattooing and is a safe and effective way for individuals to improve eyebrow shape, definition, color, and fullness.

How Does Microblading Work?

Using a super-fine pen, microblading delivers pigment under the skin to replicate the appearance of individual hairs.

The procedure is highly customizable to each patient’s concerns and goals. Before getting started, the provider will outline the shape of the brows and select a pigment that closely matches your natural brow color. Then a hand-held device will be used to precisely apply the ink with hair-like strokes.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Microblading?

Microblading is an excellent option for patients that want to trim time for their morning routine, but still maintain flawless brows.

It’s also an ideal way to correct patchiness, improve eyebrow structure, or restore eyebrows that have been lost to alopecia or other medical conditions. 

However, an in-person consultation with a board-certified dermatologist will help ensure that your skin is well-suited for treatment and will heal with crisp strokes and natural results.

Additionally, a dermatologist, compared to a provider without a medical degree, has the ability to limit possible microblading risks and manage appropriately should they occur.

How Long Do Results Last?

Microblading results gradually fade over time, and personal preference often dictates when it’s time to return for another treatment. With that being said, most patients can expect to undergo maintenance sessions every 12-18 months or once the pigment color and concentration have significantly decreased.
