If you weren’t born with the perfect natural eyebrows, you probably spend a minimum of 15 minutes every day working on your eyebrows. The amount you spend on eyebrow makeup in a year might even be in the hundreds of dollars. The good news is that if you are tired of working on your eyebrows each morning, you can get microblading. This is basically eyebrow tattooing. At the end of the procedure, you will have an effortless full brow hence no need for expensive brow gels or pencils each morning. However, before you go for the procedure, it is paramount that you take the time to understand a couple of points about eyebrow tattooing.
It is fairly natural
Microblading is designed to create for you natural-looking eyebrows. Although the end result is a natural look, upon a closer look, anybody can tell that it is not all natural. The good news, however, is the fact that it looks much better than what you achieve with a brow pencil or gel. What is more is that the new eyebrows will remain the same for months or even months without rubbing off.
It is not permanent
Unlike normal body art tattoo, microblading results are not permanent. They are semi-permanent in that they will last between 1 and 3 years. The reason these tattoos are not permanent is because they are superficial to the skin. The ink that is used is also more degradable. Your immune system will even digest the ink over time. With time, the eyebrows will fade. How long the eyebrow tattoos last will depend on your lifestyle and skin type. Take time to learn more on eyebrow tattooing from a clinician before going with the option.
Follow-up sessions might be needed
Most people will need at least two sessions to get the ideal brow. It is for this reason that you need to select a cosmetic clinic that is close to where you live. After the first treatment, you will notice that your new eyebrows will lighten up considerably after the first week. This is why you will be required to come back after 4 weeks for a touch-up session. The number of sessions that will be needed will depend on your skin type. Some skin types retain ink better than others.
Messed up eyebrows can be fixed
There is no artist that will never make a mistake in his career. There are times when even the most experienced clinicians make strokes that they don’t like. This doesn’t mean you will have to live with the bad stroke. The bad stroke can be neutralized with a skin color to make the stroke disappear. The clinician can then go ahead and refine the stroke for the perfect brow.
The above information is not comprehensive. You need to dig deeper into eyebrow tattooing and ensure all your questions are answered before going for the procedure. Don’t be afraid to talk to your artist about the treatment. Most cosmetic clinics offer free consultation.
