Benefits and the Preparation for Microblading
The beauty industry has evolved over the years with the introduction of various cosmetic procedures such as microblading. This process involves implanting pigment in hair-like strokes in the epidermis to give your eyebrows a fuller look. Unlike traditional tattooing, which may result in color changes, microblading pigments are organic and only wear off with time. Microbladed eyebrows can last up to 3 years depending on your skin type, as brows for people with oily skin tend to wear off faster. If you are tired of filling in your brows every day, COSMEDOCTOR can help you achieve a beautiful, polished, and long-lasting look using microblading.
How Do You Prepare for the Microblading Process?
It is essential to consult with your doctor before booking a microblading session to ensure the procedure is suitable for you and discuss any risks associated with the procedure with your specialist. You may also let your specialist know the shape and color that you prefer. Your technician will help you choose the right brow shape to match the shape of your face and may send you home with several preparation tips to observe before the procedure that includes:
- Avoid picking or tweezing your eyebrows at least a week before microblading.
- Wash your hair before microblading since your brows should not contact water for at least seven days after the process.
- Do not take blood-thinning medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen to minimize bleeding during the procedure.
- Avoid taking alcohol at least 24 hours before microblading, as this may also result in blood thinning.
What Are the Benefits of Microblading?
It saves you time
For most women, part of the morning routine includes filling in the eyebrows while doing make-up. The entire process can be time-consuming as it takes 20 to 30 minutes. Apart from wasting your time, drawing eyebrows can be frustrating and tiresome for non-professionals or beginners who may need to re-do the process multiple times to achieve desired results. Thanks to microblading, you do not have to worry about doing your brows daily since they will always look presentable.
It gives you natural-looking results
This semi-permanent procedure was initially founded in Asia for patients who had lost a significant amount of eyebrow hair from treatments such as chemotherapy. Today, anyone experiencing hair loss in the brows due to any condition may benefit from microblading. The natural effect of this process makes it nearly impossible to spot a difference between a microbladed and a natural eyebrow. This is a better alternative to using pencils and gels. It is best to work with a professional to achieve natural-looking results.
Does not smudge or wear off
If you fill your eyebrow using pencils or gel, then you have experienced smudges at some point. In most cases, your brows may wear out in the evening after a long day when exercising or may rub off when some mistakenly get in contact with them. Fortunately, with microbladed brows, you can go about your day-to-day activities without the worry of losing the look on your face as microblading implants pigments beneath three layers of your skin.
Microbladed eyebrows are convenient compared to using pencil or gel. Besides saving you time, microblading takes years off your face and enhances your facial appearance. Book a session with your specialist at Cosmedoctor for microblading to achieve the perfect brows.
