Microblading treatment has become one of Dubai’s most popular cosmetic procedures; many women struggle with misshapen or sparse eyebrows. An excellent solution to this problem is microblading, which creates a long-lasting illusion of defined and full eyebrows. While the procedure does not have a specific age limit, there are things to keep in mind if you are over 40. This article will reveal these guidelines to ensure this treatment will be beneficial for you.
What is microblading?
It is a semi-permanent tattoo technique used to replicate fuller brows. Microblading gives you natural-looking brows that can last for up to one and a half to three years. The results are not permanent as microblading tools only penetrate the uppermost layer of the skin and utilise a smaller amount of pigment, causing it to fade eventually. However, touch-ups can help you avoid fading and ensure the eyebrows look great.
A consultation with our specialist will help you decide on the best brow shape and pigment colour that suits your face. After which, they will clean the brow area, and a local anaesthetic will be administered. Once the eyebrow region is numb, our specialist will use a small tool containing several tiny needles to draw fine hair strokes and insert pigment under the skin. The procedure can take a few hours to complete, depending on the number of strokes required.
When the treatment is complete, our specialist will apply an ointment to help with the healing process. It is common for your skin to be sensitive and the pigment to look dark following the procedure. The colour will settle and look normal as your skin heals. After two hours pass, you can run a damp cotton swab dipped in sterilised water over the area to remove any excess pigment. You should avoid wetting the area for at least ten days to ensure a smooth recovery.
The benefit of Microblading if you are over 40
Fuller-looking eyebrows are considered a sign of youth and vitality. As you age, your eyebrows become thin and sparse due to slower hair growth and hormonal changes. If you wish to look young, and effective way to accomplish that is through microblading as perfectly shaped eyebrows provide an instant facelift.
What should you know about the treatment?
Microblading is an effective treatment for people of all ages; however, you need to know certain things about the procedure and how your skin will respond if you are over 40.
The maximum standard time a procedure lasts is three years, it can last much longer on middle-aged adults. This is due to the skin losing moisture and becoming dry, which causes it to hold more onto pigment. Before undergoing the microblading treatment, request our artists to draw how it will look, so you can make any changes before the pigment is inserted into your skin.
If you have wrinkles near your eyebrows, it can cause issues during the procedure. As wrinkles are folds in your skin, they need to be carefully stretched to ensure that your eyebrows are not uneven. It is essential to have a specialist experienced in administering the treatment to mature clients.
Microblading is a safe and effective semi-permanent brows procedure for all ages; you need to consider that all skins are different. Specific steps need to be followed to ensure that your treatment will give you the best result.
