All you need to know about Microblading: The trend that gives you perfectly Full Eyebrows
We all want thick, full eyebrows, as they are all the rage in the fashion industry. And after celebrities like Cara Delevingne, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, the trend of getting thick, full eyebrows doesn’t seem to be losing steam anytime soon. And if you are someone, who is not blessed with full eyebrows, there’s a new fad in the beauty industry to get the look, and it is called Microblading.
Microblading is a treatment where a certified esthetician or a skin technician tattoos eyebrows onto your face by making small cuts in your skin. It is done by using a tiny sharp instrument that looks like a blade but is actually full of tiny little needles that make small cuts in your skin. The blade is supposed to make small cuts that look like actual strands of hair and create a fuller and more natural-looking brow look. The process of putting a semi-permanent tattoo in your brows takes about two to three visits under the knife, the result – you’ll wake up with perfect eyebrows every morning for one to three years. So, goodbye to those tiring morning routines of getting in front of the mirror to get precise and on point thicker brows.
Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over-plucked brows. So the procedure involves giving you a treatment that looks just like real hair. The esthetician starts by applying a numbing cream to minimize the discomfort. After that, they draw the ideal eyebrow shape with a removable pencil or a pigmented thread. It is a precise method and therefore it takes the longest part as it is the most important step. You can also get the shape customized according to your choice and how thick you want it.
After that the incisions are made, the dye is used to fill in the cuts made and they are according to your brow color or the color that you choose before the procedure. After the dye is added, it is allowed to settle into your skin and then the excess dye is wiped off. The end result, you have perfect and fuller brows.
The best part of the microblading procedure is that once it is done and drawn there is no downtime, the eyebrows are ready in just one go. Although, you do have to do a follow-up a month after your first appointment.
Microblading is different from other procedures as it is very low maintenance and you don’t have to be careful about it, it’s just like how your natural brows would feel. It’s a smudge proof, plucking proof, and grooming proof procedure that has you sorted for almost three years at max.
The procedure works differently for different skin types and textures. While the dye may stay for long on someone it may not happen with someone else. It solely depends on the number of appointments you take for the procedure to complete.
While the procedure is a very tempting offer and absolute freedom from our weekly appointments to the salon, it does sound like a very long and painstaking procedure.
