Your eyebrows are an important component to your face structure and the framing of your eyes. With time and over-tweezing/waxing, the fluffy thick brows we once had can thin out and contribute to an aged appearance.
Are you tired of drawing your eyebrows every day, only to have them smudge, fade, or look uneven or unnatural? Say goodbye to that hassle and say hello to microblading! With our state-of-the-art tools and pigments, we can create lasting, waterproof results that require no daily maintenance.
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a handheld tool to create hair-like strokes that mimic the look of natural eyebrows. The high-quality pigment used in microblading can last up to 2 years.
Why should you get microblading? For starters, it saves you time in your daily routine since you won’t have to draw your eyebrows every day. Instead, you’ll wake up with beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows. Additionally, microblading can help you achieve your desired eyebrow shape and enhance your overall appearance.
The procedure takes roughly 2 hours and we book a second appointment 4/6 weeks out from the first application to go over everything again to help with longevity. The strokes will gradually fade as the months go on and it’s important to know that there are several factors that can cause microblading to fade faster than expected.
Some of these factors include:
1. Exposure to sunlight: Sunlight is one of the main factors that contribute to the fading of microblading pigment. UV rays can cause the pigment to break down quicker, which can lead to a lighter appearance of the strokes.
2. Oily and sensitive skin: People with oily and sensitive skin tend to experience faster fading of their microblading due to the buildup of oil and sweat. The natural oils in your skin can cause the pigment to settle shallowly, making it more prone to fading.
3. Poor aftercare: Proper aftercare is essential for the longevity of your microblading. Avoiding activities like swimming and excessive sweating can ensure that your brows last for as long as possible. Neglecting to follow aftercare instructions can result in loss of pigment or infection.
4. Certain medications and topicals: Certain medications, such as blood thinners, can affect the healing process, leading to faster fading of microblading. Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Glycloic Acids and chemical peels are all brighteners that should be avoided on and around the eyebrow shape.
It's essential to communicate with your microblading artist and follow their aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible outcome and longevity of your brow work.
It is important to note that coming back to your microblading artist before the strokes have completed faded is the best route to go. When there is still a shadow or a shape left, the application process is smoother and less expensive than getting the whole procedure done again from the start.
Whether you're looking to add shape, depth, or fullness, we can help. So what are you waiting for? Book your microblading appointment today and experience the benefits of this amazing cosmetic procedure!
