If you’re a fan of perfectly groomed brows, then one of the newest beauty trends could be right for you. Microblading has been taking the style industry by storm, but it’s still a relatively new procedure that many women have questions about. If you’re curious about this type of permanent makeup, read these frequently asked questions to learn more.
What exactly is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that is similar to a tattoo. A specialist uses a hand tool with a very small needle to draw hair-like strokes. Each “hair” is gently etched into the skin, giving a very natural eyebrow look.
Does it hurt?
A procedure using a needle sounds like it might be painful, but you have nothing to worry about. Your brow specialist will apply a local anesthetic. Though customers might still experience some discomfort, most customers report it as mild scratches. Afterwards, the brow area will be slightly tender and swollen for a few hours, similar to a sunburn.
How long does the procedure take?
Typically a microblading appointment will last between 2.5 to 3 hours, during which the brow specialist will shape and style your brows to your liking. After your initial session, a follow-up session will be needed about 4 to 6 weeks later. This follow-up is to make minor touch ups and should take about 1.5 to 2 hours.
How long does it last?
Over time, your eyebrow look will fade because microblading pigment doesn’t go as deep as a traditional tattoo. Depending on age and skin type, your brow look will last between 1 and 3 years.
