It’s hard to remember that there was ever a time when everyone wanted their eyebrows plucked at thin as possible. Now, you can’t find someone who isn’t trying to make their eyebrows stand out. While anyone with tweezers could give themselves thin brows with enough plucking, it’s not as easy to achieve full eyebrows. If you weren’t born with thick eyebrows, or you’re having trouble trying to get them to grow back, it can be hard to find a way to make filling in your brows noticeable. Even if you can manage to draw on great brows, it’s still time-consuming and only washes away at the end of the day.
The perfect, semi-permanent solution to this is microblading. With microblading Scottsdale, you can get eyebrows filled in just how you want without having to touch them up every day. For any hair color or eyebrow shape, microblading is the best way to get the brows you’ve dreamed of.
How Does Microblading Work?
Microblading goes beyond what makeup alone can do for your eyebrows. When you get microblading done, it’s a similar process to getting a tattoo and usually takes around two hours. An aesthetician will insert a hand-held tool dipped in pigment into the upper layers of skin. The hair-like strokes of pigment in the skin will then look just like natural hairs. This is more realistic than regular makeup, no one will even notice that it’s not real. The incisions are relatively painless and a numbing cream is typically applied to make it a more comfortable experience.
You’ll be able to discuss with your aesthetician how thick you want your eyebrows to be. That way, you can get just a few sparse spots filled in, or you can draw in a full eyebrow. Since the pigment is under the skin, you can wash the area without having to worry about the color wiping off.
At first, the color will be darker than you might be expecting, but the initial color fades quickly to the color you want. Some swelling and redness might occur immediately after is normal as well. For the first week, you should keep any moisture away from your eyebrows, as the pigment could still wash out in that time.
Most people get a touch up within four to eight weeks to get the look they want. After the first appointment, you can go back to make any touch ups you think your eyebrows need. You can make them even darker or fill in any missing spots you find.
How Long Does Microblading Last?
Microblading won’t come off like makeup, but it’s still only a temporary enhancement. The pigment will wear away at different rates depending on your skin type. It’s recommended to get your eyebrows redone every 12 to 18 months to keep the same effect, but it can last up to three years for some people.
