Eyebrow Microblading: What You Need to Know


When you have used every gel, powder, pigment, stencil, or pencil at your makeup counter and your brows are still yet sparse, then you might want to consider microblading. Microblading is a relatively permanent fix for those who have thin brows, promising to give you eternal and beautiful brow life. 


A form of cosmetic tattoo, microblading has become prominent over the years and basically everyone is knowledgeable about this service, which has been previously under the radar.


Compared with a regular tattoo, microblading is a kind of tattoo wherein the pigment gets implanted under the skin using a manual handheld tool and not a machine. It is still considered a tattoo, but not as deep as compared with a regular tattoo.


This beauty service has since become popular and evolved, with innovative techniques such as microfeathering, a form of microblading that focuses on a lighter touch and shape to the existing shape of your brows. Microshading also comes into mind, since it basically mirrors the look of your brow make-up using filled-in look strokes. 


There are a few things you should avoid before undergoing a microblading process. These things include basically anything that may thin out your blood. If you are taking aspirin, using retinol, or drinking a lot, it is recommended you should stop a week before the treatment.


Is the pain of the treatment relative? For some, it may just be a little scratches, but for others it may sting a little more. Others may find some comfort in using topical numbing cream. If you feel you have a somewhat low pain tolerance, it is recommended that you should use numbing cream one hour before you start the procedure, which would probably take you an hour or two. This is especially if you are undergoing the process for the first time. 


Aftercare is important. This means protecting your brows that are fleshly bladed from all kinds of moisture. This means no swimming, sweaty workouts, or resisting to wash the face using water for a week. It the face gets wet, the scab may come off a bit early and might lose the pigment.   


You may experience redness and itching especially during the first week. Vitamin A & D can help you during the period. The brows may look a bit darker at the beginning, but eventually the color may fade about 30 or 40 percent. After your first appointment, you may begin to use aftercare appointments to address mild swelling and slight redness.


You may also have to avoid makeup or any other products on your brows as they heal. Treat the brows like an open wound.


If you are not into microblading, you might want to consider microshading, which is an alternative treatment that uses thin lines along the pigments and some tweaks. The results would give brows a fuller, softer finish that is somewhat compared to a shadow.


3d brows is also an attractive, which can make you look more attractive, younger, and more time-efficient every day.
