5 Microblading Facts That Will Shatter Your Assumptions
There’s a lot of microblading facts that people hold true without proper research. It’s always important to do extensive research on the pros and cons of any body-altering procedure before actually getting it done. If you are currently considering getting a microblading procedure on your eyebrows, keep reading.
What is Microblading? Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent procedure where a handheld eyebrow pen is used to deposit ink into the skin under the eyebrow hairs. Why would anyone consider getting this procedure? This procedure provides a hassle-free solution to spending hours penciling in your eyebrows daily. Microblading is also great for persons who wish to change the shape of their eyebrows. For example, if your eyebrows are naturally thin but you desire to have a thicker/fuller look, you could consider getting the procedure done. Below are 5 common assumptions that prospective microblading clients may have.
Assumption #1: It’s Permanent and will never fade.
Truth is it isn’t permanent. Microbladed eyebrows can last anywhere between two to three years and this depends on the skin type, exposure to the sun, and the products being used on the face.
Assumption #2: The microblading process is unbearable.
The process is very similar to getting a tattoo but should not be confused with getting your eyebrows tattooed on. The procedure is surprisingly not painful which comes at a shock to most first time clients. Here at Natural Look by Eva, the client starts with a 1-hour consultation where they get to see and approve the shape of the eyebrows. Once the shape is approved, the numbing process begins and lasts for about 15 minutes. Then, the microblading procedure begins and that can last up to 4 hours. A touch-up procedure is required 6-8 weeks after the first appointment. Such procedures lasts around 2 hours. Clients can opt to get a colour boost a year later at a discount of 50% off the original price. This yearly upkeep is optional and the brows normally last 2-3 years.
Assumption #3: Microblading works on all skin types
Eva, our professional licensed esthetician and microblading expert recommends microblading on all skin types except very oily skin. It is those with large pores or skin that has a tendency to keloid. Persons with very oily skin type are recommended to get the ombre brow procedure instead as they will get better results and the brows last longer.
Assumption #4: The healing time is almost immediate
It is important to note that the healing time after the procedure is done can vary. But on average it can take up to 14 days. After care procedures include washing the area with a damp cloth every hour for the first 24 hours and applying eyebrow ointment to the brows and sealing it with a saran wrap before bedtime. After the first 24 hours, the client should wash the brows only twice a day and apply a very thin layer of ointment after each wash. The client should also try to avoid excessive exposure to sunlight for the first three weeks. The UV rays from the sun can cause the eyebrow to fade quicker.
Avoid using makeup for a minimum of 12-14 days during the healing process. Avoid direct shower water on the brows after procedure. Do not tan for at least 30 days after getting the procedure done. Clients should avoid grooming their pets, gardening, cleaning or anything that may cause dust and dander the first 3 days after the procedure. One of the reasons why our microblading procedure at Natural Look by Eva is so sought after is the fact that our clients don’t get scabs during the healing process.
