If you are considering a more permanent solution to drawing and filling in your eyebrows on a daily basis, there is a better solution. It’s called microblading. Microblading is a semi-permanent facial tattoo that is performed by manually inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin. This is done via a hand tool with tiny fine needles so the individually drawn hair strokes are sharp and crisp.
Microblading is one of the most popular procedures for permanent makeup in Springfield Missouri because the eyebrows that result from this method look natural and just like real hair. This is a big improvement over the traditional machine tattooed eyebrow.
Results and Benefits
The results from microblading are natural looking, semi-permanent eyebrows. This is beneficial to conserve time while getting ready each morning. This is also priceless for people who cannot create a nice eyebrow by themselves because of dexterity issues. These microbladed eyebrows will not wash off while exercising or swimming.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Microblading is a great option for anyone with light brow hair, sparse eyebrows from over tweezing, or hair loss from hormonal or medical changes. This is also a great choice for someone with a nice full brow to create that perfect look. Patients must be in good health on the day of their appointment.
What To Expect
Every appointment begins with a through consultation. This is when expectations are discussed, pre and post procedure guidelines are explained, pigments are chosen and brow and facial structure are taken into consideration.
The next step is measuring and drawing on the brows to create a look that is agreed upon by both the patient and the technician. Shaping the eyebrows properly is the foundation to getting perfect eyebrows. We don’t move forward with anything until you are completely happy with your brow shape.
Then the brows are numbed. After the anesthetic is active the actual microblading begins. This part of the procedure takes around 20-40 minutes. Most patients feel very little during the procedure. Aftercare healing is between five to fourteen days.
There are rarely any side effects from microblading, other than gorgeous eyebrows. On rare occasions a patient might be allergic to the pigment used or develop an infection.
What Are The Anticipated Results?
The results from microblading are a natural brow that does not wash off, smudge, or have to be colored in. The color should stay true anywhere from a year up to three years. This depends on your lifestyle, sun exposure, skin type, and product use. At this point a touchup will be necessary.
One benefit of the process needing a touch up is that your color preferences change over time and this allows your eyebrows to stay coordinated with the rest of your color palette.
-Immediately following your microblading procedure:
Apply ice to brows for 10 to 30 minutes. The ice helps reduce swelling and increases healing.
-For 14 days following your microblading procedure:
Wash the area VERY well the night of the procedure. Scrub off any discharge or crusting.
Lightly cleanse with a milk cleanser twice a day.
Dry the area softly and apply a rice grain sized amount of Aquaphor or Vaseline with a patting motion.
NO scrubbing after the first night. Do not pick the epithelial crust! Allow it to flake off on its own.
You may apply make up to your eyebrows only after any scabs have completely healed.
Do not soak the area in a bathtub , swimming pool, or hot tub. No swimming.
Do not expose the area to water pressure in the shower.
Do not expose the area to the sun.
No sleeping on your face or the sides of your face.
Failure to follow these post procedure instructions properly may cause loss of pigment or cause an infection.
Remember that your colors will appear brighter and more sharply defined immediately following your procedure. As healing progresses, the color will soften.
A second session should be scheduled between 4 to 6 weeks.
