Microblading is a beauty trend that you surely would not have missed. It provides a semi-permanent solution for the people who want to have fuller eyebrows without going through the everyday hassle of doing their makeup. While fuller and darker brows indeed do enhance your features, is the process of microblading for eyebrows actually safe? If you also have doubts about it, read through this blog post that will serve as your guide.
The process of plucking your eyebrows already pose a risk to the health of your eyebrows hair. Over plucking would result to loss of hair growth in the eyebrow area, which would be frustrating for someone who wants to have full brows. There are many proposed solutions to this problem such as growth serums and gels, but many consider them as ineffective and a tedious process as they require everyday maintenance as well.
With microblading for eyebrows, you can have your brows reshaped by filling in pigments into your individual hairs, very much like how tattoo works except that it does not go as deep. The strokes resemble real hair to fill in short or sparse brows and to also give a natural look.
For people who are wondering whether it is safe and effective, the answer would be yes, as long as it is done by someone who’s an experienced professional. Just like undergoing a surgical procedure or getting a tattoo done on your body, it must be done under sterile conditions to avoid triggering unwanted skin infections.
Microblading at home carries a huge infection risk, as the process should require the proper equipment and knowledge. One of the most important things is to ensure that the salon and the person that will be carrying out the procedure possess a license, and that aesthetician has undergone proper training. It is advisable that you make sure that the person has accreditation to prove their credibility and training in microblading.
On the day of the procedure, it would also be recommendable to ask your questions to the aesthetician in case you still have any more doubts, in which the professional artist should also accurately respond to and should make recommendations on the style and give you more insights on the procedure and treatment.
To minimize the pain, a topical numbing ointment would be applied on the brow area. The process is a very detailed one, and it typically lasts for at least 2 hours. While under the procedure, you might feel a scraping-type of sensation, but it should be only minimally painful and very tolerable.
After having your microblading procedure, your eyebrows might appear darker for the first week. It is also normal to experience some redness and mild swelling, but this will fade after the first week. Eventually, your eyebrows would soften to give you a natural look.
