There’s no denying that full brows are one of the most sought-after beauty looks of all time, especially in the present day. As we age, it’s completely normal for our hair, including eyebrows and lashes, to thin. When it comes to achieving thicker brows, we could all use a little help. A very popular solution for this thinning of eyebrow hair is microblading.
What is Microblading?
A tattoo-like makeup treatment that makes your eyebrows full it works to fill in the gaps, it even works where you have no eyebrows at all. It etches the appearance of brow hairs into the skin using ink and a tiny cluster of needles in the shape of a blade. It involves hundreds of tiny strokes which embed pigment into the skin. This gives a similar appearance and texture to your actual eyebrows, creating the illusion of a fuller brow.
Is Microblading Permanent?
This is a semi-permanent treatment. On average, microblading lasts between 18 and 30 months before it needs to be touched up. It is difficult to know how long each person’s cosmetic tattoo may last, or at what rate it will begin to fade and need topping up.
What’s the Microblading Recovery Process Like?
It’s imperative to keep the new brows away from all moisture for the first week, which means you can’t wash your face with water and have to instead use something like micellar water and cotton balls to clean your skin. It also means getting creative in the shower.
