WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Did you know there are over 2.7 million #microbladingeyebrows hashtags?
This is a testament that most people want the perfect eyebrows. Having well-shaped, full eyebrows can add a lot of charm to your face. But while full eyebrows are one of the biggest beauty trends right now, not everyone is blessed with perfectly shaped hair stroke eyebrows. What’s more, practices like tweezing may also be thinning your brows.
Luckily, you can still get the brows you desire thanks to microblading. This procedure can help you have thick, defined, well-arched, or slim, straight, fluffy brows and natural-looking eyebrows.. All styles and outcomes are possible with Perfect Definition!
In our ultimate guide to microblading eyebrows, we will thoroughly explain everything you need to know about this popular cosmetic procedure.
WHO IS A SUITABLE CANDIDATE FOR MICROBLADING
If you suffer from brow hair loss and want to make them appear fuller and thicker or just restore what was lost, you should visit certified and licensed technician, Permanent Makeup Artist to discuss eyebrow treatments.
Please note that during the consultation, El Truchan, multi - award winning London permanent makeup artist will assess your medical history and skin type to determine whether you are a good candidate for microblading. Unfortunately, our London offering may not be right for you if you:
Are pregnant or breastfeeding
Suffering from certain medical conditions
Have any bleeding disorders
Use blood-thinning medications
Have recently had Botox injections or fillers near the treatment area
Have viral infections or diseases
Have Rosacea, Psoriasis, or skin irritations near the treatment area
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE MICROBLADING PROCEDURE
Step 1: Preparation On the day of the procedure, you can voice out any questions or concerns you have with your Permanent Makeup Artist and voice any questions or concerns. The Permanent Makeup Artist will also explain the microblading procedure and the options, including microblading, colour and style. Also, the artist will remove the stray hair if necessary and clean your skin.
Step 3: Measuring, Mapping, Design Your makeup artist will measure certain features of your brow area and design the brow shape, taking into account your face shape. They’ll show you a pre-draw of what your brows will look like after the treatment. You will work with your technician to assure you are both happy with the shape.
Step 2: Numbing Before the procedure starts, the Permanent Makeup Artist will cover your brow area using a topical numbing ointment. This can help reduce discomfort during the procedure.
Step 4: Blading Process Your Permanent Makeup Artist will create finely shaped strokes through the skin using a microblade and then covers them with a customized colour pigment. For better retention, they can add another layer of pigment. Depending on your skin, you can get more than two passes. The procedure visit can take up to 2 hours, the actual treatment takes about 30 minutes.
After the procedure, you may feel a soreness in the brow area. You may also experience mild swelling and redness although very unlikely unless your skin is very sensitive. The Permanent Makeup Artist will give you aftercare instructions. Some of the treatments post care include:
Application of the healing balm / moisturizing ointment application
Avoid exposing your brows to too water for 12 days
Avoid putting makeup on the brow area while it is healing
Don’t pick at the scabs
Avoid tanning or contact with direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks
Avoid using chemical peels or facial scrubs near the brows for at least 6 weeks
Avoid heavy sweating for at least 9 days, but you can do other forms of exercises.
Factors to Consider Before Getting Microblading Services
Just like other beauty treatments, microblading has possible risks associated with it. Below are some tips to ensure the treatment gives you the results you desire.
Carefully research the Permanent Makeup clinic or Aesthetic Clinic in your area and choose the one with highly-skilled and licensed practitioner. Never go to an untrained, uncertified artist. You don’t want to endure the additional costs of correcting poorly done semi-permanent eyebrows.
Allergic Reaction (we patch test in advance or scratch test on the day).
Allergic reactions to pigments used for microblading are rare but can happen. we use best quality pigments approved for use in UK to assure any risk is as low as can be. Therefore it’s important to ask your makeup artist about the types of pigment they’ll use and how they confirm allergies. Some artists conduct a patch test to determine whether you are allergic to a pigment or not.
Infection ( if you follow the correct aftercare instructions provided by us, the risk of infection is removed).
Since the microblading procedure breaks the skin, you face a serious risk for transmissions of infectious diseases, like bacterial skin infections and HIV. That’s why you must ensure your practitioner uses single use needles/blades and always opens the tools in front of you.
How Long Will Your Semi-Permanent Eyebrows Last?
Your fuller eyebrows can last for about 1-3 years but annual Colour Boost Maintenance visits are recommended to maintain the same colour intensity. Some things that can affect the longevity of your microbladed eyebrows include:
Aftercare Routine: How you take care of your skin during recovery
Skincare Routine: Some cosmetic products speed up the fading
Skin Type: If you have dry skin, your brows can last longer
Touch Ups: Regular appointments can improve longevity of the results
