Microblading is a form of Tattooing-
It won’t be wrong to state that microblading is a form of tattooing and this lovable tattoo technique isn’t as scary as it sounds because unlike a regular tattoo technique, in microblading pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. The artist draws hair-like strokes to mimic natural hairs in your brows. Even though microblading is not as profound as the regular tattoo, it is still a tattoo because of the pigment implantation.
Microblading takes time –
Don’t expect to get the beautifully shaped eyebrows in just a matter of minutes. Undergoing this semi permanent beauty technique takes anywhere from 2-4 hours. Clients are advised to plan accordingly.
Preparation and after care –
To get the best of your microblading procedure you need to keep some things in mind before undergoing this procedure. Avoid taking blood thinning medications such as aleve, aspirin etc. few days prior to your procedure. You need to stop alcoholic beverages one day prior. The eyebrow area should be free of sunburns and retinol use a week prior to your session as these substances may make your skin thin and cause you to bleed a little more.
Also, avoid taking these things and anything caffeinated during the healing process. Protect your freshly bladed brows from any and all moisture like swimming, no sweaty workouts or washing your face with water for a whole week. If your brows get wet due to any reason, the scab may come off too early and you will lose the pigment.
Bottom line –
You may experience a slight redness and mild swelling after the session but overall you will look great following the session and can go about your life as normal.
