eyebrow microblading london. Natural eyebrows are having a moment. They are like a barrier that protects the eyes from foreign particles and even sweat. But they are also really important in communication and expression. Put simply, eyebrows work to kind of frame your face and eyes. Because of the huge importance of the brows, doing your grooming properly has become one of the essentials in our beauty routines. This is true to some extent but what if someone does not have a lot to work with?
Fortunately for you, there are a plethora of options when it comes to techniques and treatments for filling in your eyebrows. One of these techniques is microblading which has been getting a lot of hype around it these days. A lot of famous celebrities, including Madonna, Bella Thorne and Lena Dunham, have had their arches touched up with the same treatment.
Microblading is a semi permanent brow treatment. It actually involves utilizing small needles with fine points in order to scratch the surface of the skin so that it is possible to insert the pigments deep into the skin.
Even though microblading has only become popular in the west during the past couple of years, most people believe that microblading has originated in China in the early aughts. In this procedure, a tool which is comprised of superfine needles is used in order to insert the custom pigments into the skin by scratching the surface of the skin. Microblading is actually done by hand whereas in tattooing this isn’t necessarily true. This way, the technician is able to wield more control over the whole process and can create more natural looking semi permanent results.
Microblading is a possibility for anyone who uses brow pencils and can benefit from it. As mentioned by one of our clients: “I was ready to say goodbye to my sparse eyebrows and so I did. As soon as I heard about microblading and how well could the results look, I booked a session at the microblading salon near me and got my eyebrow microblading. The process was amazing. In just under one hour, I had gone from having thin eyebrows with gaps in them to having soft arches that looked completely natural to the eye. I had a great feeling at the time. I felt like I was born once again. I was sure my eyebrows were different (and in a good way) and they were never going to be the same again and I knew I was going to be comfortable for the next year or two.
Although microblading has proven to be a such viable option if you are looking to have fuller arches and thicker eyebrows, there is yet another technique which sounds quite similar to the one above. This eyebrow treatment that has made it way onto the scene is called microfeathering. To simply put it, both of these treatments follow the same process. In both microblading and microfeathering, a technician will stroke the epidermis with small incisions and puts the pigment inside the said incisions. With that said, even with the exact same procedure, the results still differ.
The intent with microfeathering is to fill in just the sparse growth and not to cover the whole eyebrow area. Supporters of this method (AKA microfeathering) claim that it offers much better results than microblading as the final look is more natural.
After the appointment, when you’re done with the microblading and have got your eyebrows all thick and full, there are some points that the technician will let you know. First of all, it is usually recommended to avoid getting your newly microbladed eyebrows wet for about 10 days (and sometimes even more depending on what the technician thinks). Also, for the first week you might notice some mild scabbing. There is nothing to worry about as you can buy a special ointment from the eyebrow salon that will easily solve the abovementioned problem. After the recovery period is over, you can go back to the normal routine and wash your face as usual knowing that your beautiful new eyebrows would not just disappear.
Note: it is also important to know that a good number of dermatologists do not suggest using this type of service since they it may interfere with the structure of a follicle. It is possible for the ink in particular to bleed into the skin which will lead to losing the look of the “brush stroke” over time. Also, it is of utmost importance that in case you are using retinols, Accutane or any prescription acne creams, you have to stop using these particular substances before you go for this type of eyebrow treatment.
Moreover, if you decided to get your eyebrow microblading, you should do a follow up of this treatment about 6 – 9 months later due to the fact that the colour of the ink will probably change over time.
