What is Eyebrow Microblading?
Eyebrow Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that uses fine, hair-like strokes to give the appearance of fuller eyebrows. This option is great for those who want their brows to appear thicker, longer and in better shape without needing to use makeup every day. Microblading is a cosmetic procedure in which an experienced technician uses a special tool to deposit individual strokes of pigment into your skin, creating enhanced fullness and symmetry to your natural eyebrows that last up to two years. Microblading offers natural-looking results and can save you time on your daily beauty regimen. Microblading is suitable for both men and women who wish to enhance the aesthetic of their eyebrows. For those who have overplucked, want darker and thicker brows due to illness, aging or genetic predisposition; microblading could be the ideal solution.
How to take care of your eyebrows after Microblading treatment and what to avoid doing in order to make the Microblading last longer
After microblading treatment, it is essential to avoid:
Water: Avoid getting your eyebrows wet for at least 3-7 days following the procedure, including swimming, saunas and hot tubs.
Sun exposure: Direct sunlight can fade the pigment in just a few days so it’s best to avoid direct sun exposure during the first two weeks after treatment. Make sure you wear sunscreen when going outside during this time.
Avoid touching or picking at the treated area: Avoid touching or picking at this area as this could lead to infection, scarring, or loss of pigment.
Makeup: For at least 7-10 days after treatment, avoid applying makeup directly onto the treated area – including foundation, powders, and eyeshadow.
Working Out: Avoid heavy exercise or activities that cause excessive sweating for at least a week after the procedure.
Chemicals: Stay away from products containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), retinol, or glycolic acid on the treated area as these may fade the pigmentation.
Use a Clean Pillowcase: Make sure your pillowcase is changed regularly, and use one fresh every night to prevent infection.
Limit Excess Sweating: Avoid heavy exercise or activities that cause excessive sweating for at least one week following the procedure.
Apply a Nourishing Oil or Serum: Your Microblading artist may suggest applying a nourishing oil or serum to the eyebrows to keep them moisturized and prevent dryness.
Make a Follow-up Appointment: Make an appointment with your Microblading artist for touch-ups and to ensure your eyebrows are healing properly.
Following these guidelines will help your Microblading treatment heal properly and the results last as long as possible. It’s essential to adhere to the aftercare instructions provided by your Microblading artist in order to achieve optimal outcomes.
How to keep your brows looking their best
Here are a few tips to maintain the beauty of your eyebrows:
Protect Your Skin: Cover the area around your eyebrows with sunscreen or wear a hat to shield it from UV rays, as exposure to the sun can cause fading and damage to skin.
Moisturize: Keep your brows moisturized with a nourishing oil or serum to prevent dryness and flakiness that could make the color appear uneven.
Avoid Over-plucking: Over plucking can damage hair follicles and cause thinning or uneven growth. Try to limit tweezing to once or twice per week and let your eyebrows naturally develop.
Regular Maintenance: Make regular appointments with your Microblading artist to maintain the shape and color of your eyebrows. Generally, touch-ups should be scheduled every 6-12 months depending on individual needs.
Use the Right Products: Select eyebrow products that complement your Microbladed brows and avoid those containing alcohol, as these can fade the pigment.
Follow Aftercare Instructions: Be sure to adhere strictly to the aftercare instructions provided by your Microblading artist in order for your brows to heal properly and retain their color.
By following these tips, you can keep your brows looking their best and preserve the results of your Microblading treatment. Be patient as it may take time for you to see full effects after receiving Microblading.
The importance of Microblading follow-up appointment
The follow-up appointment after a Microblading treatment is essential for ensuring the best possible outcome for your eyebrows. Here are some of the reasons why a follow-up appointment is important:
- Touch-up of any faded or uneven areas: Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure, and the pigment will fade over time. The follow-up appointment allows your Microblading artist to touch up any areas that have faded, ensuring that your eyebrows look their best for as long as possible.
- Adjustments to shape and color: Sometimes, the shape or color of your eyebrows may need to be adjusted after the initial treatment. The follow-up appointment provides an opportunity to make any necessary adjustments to ensure that you are happy with the final result.
- Monitoring healing progress: During the follow-up appointment, your Microblading artist will assess how well your eyebrows have healed since the initial treatment. They can provide guidance on how to care for your eyebrows to ensure that they continue to heal properly.
- Opportunity to ask questions: The follow-up appointment provides an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the healing process or how to care for your eyebrows after the treatment.
Overall, the follow-up appointment is an important part of the Microblading process. It allows your Microblading artist to ensure that your eyebrows look their best for as long as possible and provides an opportunity to address any concerns you may have. It is essential to attend your follow-up appointment to ensure the best possible outcome for your eyebrows.
How long does Microblading last on oily skin
The longevity of Microblading results can vary depending on several factors, including skin type, aftercare, and individual body chemistry. Oily skin tends to retain less pigment, which can affect the duration of the results.
Generally, Microblading can last between 12-24 months on average, with touch-up appointments required to maintain the results. However, on oily skin, the results may last closer to 12 months, and touch-up appointments may be required more frequently to maintain the desired look. To maximize the longevity of Microblading results on oily skin, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your Microblading artist carefully. This includes avoiding excess oil on the eyebrows, avoiding excessive sweating, and protecting the eyebrows from direct sunlight.
Regular touch-up appointments can also help to maintain the results of the treatment, especially on oily skin. Your Microblading artist can assess the condition of your eyebrows and recommend touch-ups as needed to ensure the best possible outcome. Overall, while Microblading results may not last as long on oily skin, the treatment can still provide a natural-looking, low-maintenance solution for enhancing the appearance of the eyebrows.
