Perfectly defined features begin with well-maintained brows. However, over plucking your eyebrows can lead to beauty hell on a daily basis. Not only do you wake up each day looking like you’ve been in a fight with a razor and have to immediately reach for your Kohl and compact mirror before anything else, but over plucked eyebrows are extremely aging.
Thanks to the revolutionary microblading procedure, there’s no need to walk with trepidation to the tattoo parlour in search of a quick-fix solution. Microblading offers natural, semi-permanent and impressive results – so good in fact that your eyebrows look, well, like eyebrows once more.
Microblading is the process of applying small and precise strokes that look just like real hairs. The procedure is effectuated by using a microblading pen, of which allows the technician to individually draw on each stroke. Microblading has received a huge amount of hype due to the unrivalled flawlessly natural finish it achieves. The only drawback is that the procedure takes a couple of hours to complete – but if you compare that to the amount of time (and embarrassment) you will save on a daily basis, it is the obvious choice to make.
Make Sure You Choose A Good Technician
Before going ahead with the treatment do a little research and check the technician’s credentials. Additionally, a good technician will be more than happy to show you photos of their recent work.
A Note To Remember
Avoid exfoliating for 72 hours before having the procedure.
Do not pluck or wax for a few days before your appointment.
Do not use AHAs or retinol before the procedure as this may inflame the skin.
It is advisable for breastfeeding, pregnant women and diabetics not to have the treatment.
Microblading is in my opinion the best option for natural looking semi-permanent brows. However, it will take two, sometime three appointments before you achieve your desired look. Once this has been acquired, you will not have to worry about sharp brows, wiping your forehead or waking up with half a brow missing again (or at least for another 6 months, when you will need a top-up).
Conclusion: Microblading is totally worth it.
