Are you frustrated with the appearance of your eyebrows? Well, many people are. Whether you’ve plucked or waxed your eyebrows too much (causing them to have an odd shape), or you don’t manage your brows enough (making them too big and bushy), the good news is that there’s a cosmetic treatment that can help you achieve a stunning eyebrow aesthetic.
At Synergy Face + Body, we can help you define your natural brow shape with microblading. However, many people are unsure what microblading can accomplish. Below, you’ll find some information about this treatment, including how it can help your facial aesthetic by creating beautiful brows that complement the features of your face.
What Is Microblading?
While you may have heard of microblading, there’s a decent chance that you may not really know what it actually is. Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic solution for concerns with the eyebrows. For this procedure, a small, handheld tool helps to increase pigment in the skin. This procedure creates hand-drawn microblade strokes that imitate natural, individual brow hairs. It reshapes and adds fullness to less-defined eyebrows. During your consultation, our microblading and pigmentation specialists will talk you through the process and create a customized treatment plan that will be best for you and your features.
What Should I Expect for My Microblading Procedure and Recovery?
The microblading treatment itself is pretty simple and straightforward, with your cosmetic specialist using the microblading handheld device to make tiny incisions in your skin. Pigment is deposited into these areas to help correct thin eyebrows by giving you the aesthetic you desire. While it varies for each individual treatment, most patients are finished with their session in 30 minutes to an hour.
Once your procedure is finished, you can expect to have some soreness in the area. This is completely normal. You may also notice some bruising and swelling in and around your brows. These side effects usually dissipate within the first week. You will notice scabs forming from the incisions. It is essential that you do not pick these scabs but instead allow them to fall off by themselves. Within a week, you will notice that your skin is back to normal, except now you can be proud of fuller, thicker, more beautiful eyebrows that help to accentuate your eyes and the rest of your facial aesthetic.
When to Touch Up?
It is important to note that microblading is considered a semi-permanent cosmetic solution. This means that you can expect to have long-lasting results, though you will need to have touch-up treatments to maintain your stunning results. Though the timeframe for when these touch ups are required is different for each person and is dependent on various factors, including lifestyle and genetics, most patients notice their results wearing off after 18 to 36 months.
What Are the Benefits of Microblading?
Besides the physical benefits that microblading offers (full and natural-looking eyebrows that help you look more youthful than you have in years), you can also look forward to finding yourself with more confidence. No longer will you need to worry about how your eyebrows look, nor will you feel the need to cover your brows with makeup, clothing, or accessories. Instead, you can smile at your reflection, knowing that you look as good as you feel!
