Microblading: What You Need to Know Before Getting the Treatment. What can we say about the beauty business without stating the obvious? Yes, it’s definitely one of the strongest businesses at the moment with hundreds and hundreds of people opting for different procedures every single day, in every corner of the world. One such procedure is microbladed eyebrows, and even though many opt for it, there are those who are not quite certain about the safety of the procedure, what to expect and how long it lasts. So, if you want to microblade your eyebrows and don’t know what to expect, these are the most important things that you should know before getting the treatment:
1. The definition of microblading
For those of you who don’t know what microblading is, let’s make this picture crystal-clear. Eyebrows are extremely important nowadays, especially with millennials, and many of them opt for this treatment. Microblading resembled tattooing your face, but there is a small difference. As opposed to classic tattoos that are first of all permanent, and secondly a bit more evasive, microblading eyebrows is not a permanent treatment, but rather a semi-permanent one. This means that the eyebrows will stay on one’s face somewhere from 1 year to 3 years, depending on the quality of the procedure and other factors as well. This process involves small incisions that are made into the skin of the client, and using thin, hair-like strokes, the artist creates the exact shape that client wants. So, at the very end of the procedure, it will look like all the incisions that were made into your brow skin are actually real hairs.
2. Choosing the right artist
Just like it’s the case with every service that you want, it’s very important to choose the right person who will do the job. There is a plethora of artists nowadays that offer your service, and your job is to browse around and find the best one. The first thing that you need to be looking for is the certification – for example, any artist who obtained a certificate from the recognized PhiBrows training has probably made the best choice. These trainings are thorough and extremely efficient, learning the future artists skills and technique of good microblading. Many things depend on a good microblading artist – they will make sure you have all the information that you need beforehand, will take care of you before, during and after the procedure and will help you along the way.
3. The safety of the procedure
There are many questions that people raise concerning microblading eyebrows, but the most common ones is wether treatment is safe or not. Just like tattooing, getting your eyebrows microbladed is a perfectly safe procedure, but you need to choose the right artist, of course. Not only is it safe, but it can be completely painless as the right artist will use a numbing ointment which will help you not feel the small incisions that are being made. However, make sure that the aftercare procedure is also extremely important and you will have to follow it to the letter. Unless you do this, there might be certain risks such as infections, allergic reactions or the fact that it’s poorly done.
4. Not everyone qualifies
Most commonly, most people qualify as good candidates for the procedure, but there are of course those who need to think twice. If you prove to be unqualified for the procedure at the moment, it would be a good idea to wait some time or have a consultation session with your artist before actually undergo this procedure. There are certain pre-existing conditions that affect the final look of your microbladed eyebrows, so if you fall into one of the following categories, wait a bit longer or consult your artist for more details:
5. The benefits of the procedure
Even it doesn’t have any actual physical health benefits, this procedure surely has its psychological advantages. Namely, being satisfied with your eyebrows and they you look with them on your face can significantly boost your self-esteem and make you much more self-confident and self-satisfied. This, furthermore, lowers the chances of being depressed, which means that microbladed eyebrows can help a person fight depression in the long run.
