A set of perfectly shaped eyebrows is arguably the most important feature on your face as they help to frame and polish it. However, over the years, eyebrows go through a lot of thinning, leaving them looking sparse or non-existent. If this is the case with your eyebrows, then you should probably consider the latest semi-permanent eyebrow procedure also known as microblading. Microblading gives you a naturally big and bushy eyebrow look. It also eliminates the tedious upkeep of pencils, brushes and other cosmetics.
What is Microblading?
Microblading also referred to as Microstroking or 3D brow embroidery is a state of the art form of semi-permanent eyebrow makeup where a professional meticulously fills your brows using a special microblading pen. With permanent eyebrow makeup, you will not have to worry about the shape and fullness of your brows. Additionally, this process yields natural, crisp strokes that give the illusion of real eyebrow hair. Microblading is highly recommended for those who want to enhance and reconstruct the look of their eyebrows. Once you have your semi-permanent eyebrows, you will no longer have to worry about smudged brows or spending 20+ minutes every morning trying to get them to look perfect.
What is the Microblading procedure like?
Although microblading is a similar idea to eyebrow tattoo, it is not the same thing. Microblading uses a manual tool, unlike tattooing which uses a machine. The microblading pen penetrates the first layer of your skin to deposit pigment using incredibly fine blades to draw hairlike strokes that mimic natural semi-permanent eyebrow hairs. On the other hand, eyebrow tattoo procedure deposits the ink much deeper into the skin to give you permanent eyebrows.
Is the Procedure painful?
Microblading is a tattoo. Therefore, expect it to hurt, although the pain is quite bearable. Preferably, go for an experienced technician in Toronto like HD Beauty Permanent Makeup Academy who has superior stretching techniques over time, making it less painful for you. We prepare our customers by applying a topical anesthetic such as coconut oil and topping it up throughout the entire process to dull the discomfort.
After a microblading procedure, it is crucial that you protect your brows from all moisture. No sweaty workouts, swimming or washing your face with water for the first few days. Keeping your face dry helps you heal faster with minimal pigment loss. Some people may experience redness and itching during the first week. Do not scratch your eyebrows! We recommend applying Vaseline during this period. At HD Beauty, we provide aftercare ointments during the first appointment. Also, your eyebrows will look slightly darker at first, but will fade off over time.
Follow up Treatment
After about 30 to 45 days, you will need to book a touch-up appointment. This is essential since, after the initial treatment, the brows tend to fade a lot. Although this is usually normal, it is the main reason why you need to go back for the follow-up treatment. Most often, this appointment is included in your initial service.
How much does microblading cost?
The prices for microblading and semi-permanent eyebrow makeup can vary depending on the artist. At HD Beauty Permanent Makeup Academy, the microblading procedure costs $550. This amount includes initial process, healing cream and post follow-up appointment.
How long do these eyebrows last?
On average, these eyebrows last anywhere from one to three years. The results vary depending on your skin’s resistance to pigment, exposure to sun, lifestyle, and your skin regiment.
