Long lasting beautiful eyebrows
Microblading is a technique of cosmetic tattooing performed specifically on the eyebrows. Like earlier methods of cosmetic tattooing, it is done by manually depositing pigment into the second layer of the skin (dermis).
But what makes it truly unique is the hand tool used. The unique formation of microblading needles allows the artist to create the look of real eyebrow hairs by tattooing very fine hair-like strokes in the skin.
What Can I Expect After a Microblading Procedure?
The healing process after a microblading procedure varies from client to client based on many factors. This could include, but is not limited to: the artist’s technique, pigments used, aftercare instructions, whether or not shading was done, as well as just overall how someone’s body and skin reacts to the procedure. Some of the most common things clients can expect after a microblading procedure are:
- Tenderness in the area
- Pink or redness around the affected area
- Thickening and darkening of the area
- Moderate to thick scabbing 3-4 days after the procedure
- Scabs will begin to flake off anytime between days 5 – 10
- After scabs flake off, pigment color and strokes will look light, grey, and blurry
- After area is fully healed (4 weeks after procedure) the pigment will return to full color
How Long Does Microblading Last?
It really depends on the client and the health of their skin, but microblading procedures should last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. Microblading is not supposed to last forever and will require touch-ups when the pigment begins to fade.
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup and is subject to fading over time due to exfoliation, sun exposure and skincare products that may increase exfoliation of the skin. Microblading should last anywhere from 1 year to 3 years before requiring a touch-up.
