7 Questions People ask Before Their First Microblading Treatment
- What is eyebrow microblading?
Eyebrow microblading is a cosmetic tattooing technique that involves using a handheld tool to draw fine, hair-like strokes on the skin to create the appearance of fuller eyebrows. The pigment is deposited into the upper layers of the skin, and the resulting effect is semi-permanent.
- Is eyebrow microblading painful?
Some people may experience discomfort during the procedure, but it is generally considered to be a low-pain treatment. A numbing cream may be applied to the skin before the treatment to minimize discomfort.
- How long does the eyebrow microblading procedure take?
The procedure typically takes about 1-3 hours, including consultation and aftercare instructions.
- How long does the effect of eyebrow microblading last?
The effect of eyebrow microblading typically lasts for 1-3 years, depending on the individual’s skin type and aftercare regimen. Touch-up appointments may be necessary to maintain the desired shape and color.
- Are there any risks or side effects associated with eyebrow microblading?
As with any procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with eyebrow microblading. These may include infection, allergic reactions to the pigment, and scarring. It is vital to carefully research the procedure and choose a reputable, licensed technician to minimize the risk of these complications.
- What should I do to prepare for my eyebrow microblading appointment?
You should avoid using any exfoliants, including glycolic acid and retinol, on the area for at least one week before the appointment. You should also avoid waxing, tweezing, or threading the eyebrows for at least one week before the appointment. You should also avoid alcohol and caffeine on the day of the appointment, as they can thin the blood and increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.
- How should I care for my eyebrows after the microblading procedure?
You should avoid getting the treated area wet or applying any products, including makeup, to the eyebrows for at least one week after the procedure. You should also avoid direct sun exposure and swimming for at least one week after the procedure.
