If eyes are the window to the soul, then eyebrows are the curtains. You wouldn’t leave your windows exposed to the world, so don’t do it to your eyes. Microblading has been around long enough that it wouldn’t be right to continue calling it a trend. It is a cultural phenomenon with women of all ages and incomes getting procedures done to guarantee them perfect eyebrows. You will wake up with beautiful brows every morning and never need to worry about removing makeup or having rain or sweat ruin your look. Your 3D eyebrow tattoo will never let you down.
The Microblading Process
On the day of your appointment, you can’t wear makeup on or near your eyebrows. Mascara or lipstick are okay but keep your eyebrow area clear. Your procedure will take about two hours. It will be uncomfortable but not painful. Regardless, it’s best not to make other plans for the day. You may experience redness or slight swelling and the first day with 3D microblading can be intense. Your eyebrows will be at their darkest, and you may need time to get used to your new look. So, we recommend staying home and relaxing. You can show them off later.
Is it a Tattoo?
Microblading is not a tattoo in the traditional sense. There is no needle penetrating deep into your skin. There is no ink (microblading uses pigment). 3D eyebrow microblading is done with a special tool that sort of scrapes the pigment into your skin. It doesn’t penetrate to as deep of a level as a standard tattoo. This means that you can expect less pain, the technician has greater control freehand, and your results are not permanent. Microblading lasts about three years. You’ll need to go for a touch up after one or two years if you want to keep the look.
Cosmetic tattoo healing phases are nothing to worry about. If you follow a few simple steps, your cosmetic tattoo will heal nicely. The total healing process is about a month. During this time, you will need to be careful with your eyebrows. Do not touch them. If you touch them, you can disrupt the pigment and it may not heal as nicely as it could. You also need to keep them dry to promote healing. Exercise after tattoos is possible, but you need to be careful with your forehead sweat. Don’t casually wipe it away with your hand. Use a towel and be very deliberate with your actions to avoid your eyebrows.
The Future of Your Eyebrows
After your procedure, your eyebrows will go through a healing phase. Do not panic if they look darker or lighter than you expect. This is normal. The whole healing process is about one month. After a month or six weeks, you need to come in for a follow-up appointment. During your follow-up we will correct any spots that have faded. This is where your eyebrows are perfected. After your follow-up appointment, you can treat your eyebrows as you usually would. Your microblading will last for about three years and won’t require any additional work unless you wish to have a touch-up after a year or two.
