How Does Microblading Work? - June 11th 2021
Chances are good you’ve heard of microblading, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have the slightest idea what it is. At Social Brows & Lashes, we provide premium microblading services to clients in Kamloops and surrounding areas. One of the questions we often get asked is, how does microblading work?
First of all, what is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo procedure the adds hairlike strokes to thin, sparse, asymmetrical or over tweezed eyebrows by inserting pigment into the skin. The finished result closely resembles the look of natural eyebrows.
Microblading has been popular in Asia for over 25 years and has recently seen an explosion of interest in North America. Amber Titus, owner of Social Brows & Lashes, has been working as a licensed esthetician for nearly 20 years and her studio has built a reputation as Kamloops’ go-to shop for beautiful brows.
How does it work?
During eyebrow microblading, pigments are used to draw fine lines that mimic and blend with your natural eyebrow hair. That may sound like we’re going to make brows look different in a significant way – but that’s rarely the case! We prefer to stay within the natural hair line because it leads to a more natural-looking result. We follow the direction of hair growth and use other techniques so that we enhance the brow instead of changing it.
Prior to starting, we’ll take time to map and measure your brows. At Social Brows & Lashes, we are certified estheticians that are trained and committed to creating the most perfect brows to suit your face shape. Following microblading, you’ll have no more time wasted every morning trying to create the perfect brow. We’ll take whatever time necessary to map your brows and discuss your expectations and desires. We’ll then use small, sterile disposable blades to make hair-like incisions in your skin while filling in the lines with pigment. This may sound scary, but your esthetician is highly trained and the process is not known to be very uncomfortable at all. Our microblading service is comfortable, reliable and low maintenance.
Following the procedure, you will be asked to clean your brows regularly and apply your provided ointment. Within a couple of weeks your brows should be healed up and looking amazing.
(Stay tuned for a future blog where we’ll detail exactly what’s involved in your aftercare as well as the different semi-permanent brow procedure available ) the opportunities are endless!!
After the initial session is complete, we’ll schedule you for a perfecting touch-up in six to eight weeks. This gives your glorious natural looking brows a chance to fully heal, so we can see any spots requiring a touch up. We also recommend annual touch-ups in order to ensure your brows continue to look sharp and fresh. Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure, so it won’t last forever. This is because the pigment is not placed as deep as in traditional tattooing.
