// Eyebrows are one of the most important facial features. Whether you're not satisfied with the shape, you have gaps that need your constant attention in the mirror each morning or you need to reconstruct them due to ill health. Here is some information on Microblading you may not know. While it doesn't come cheap (ranging from $800- $1250 AU) it could certainly be considered a long-term investment with results that not only speak for themselves but last up to 2 years.
// THE PROCEDURE
Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that is carried out by a qualified technician using a specialist hand-tool which holds disposable microblades. Before the procedure begins a topical numbing cream is applied, then the metal tool creates fine hair like strokes while using hypoallergenic pigment which generally last up to 2 years.
Unlike traditional tattoos, microblading doesn't use machine needles, the hand held tool is controlled by your artist and the ink does not deposit deep into the epidermis layer of your skin. This allows your brows to look natural, and your artist to use softer colours and avoiding those permeant marker looking brows. Like the results of other semi permanent makeup techniques.
// BROWS WILL LOOK TEXTURED NOT DRAWN ON
This is created by feather like strokes that mimic natural hair, its a great way to fill any gaps or scars.
// IT'S NOT PAINFUL
While other methods like tattoos require long lengths of time in the chair and a high pain threshold, microblading can be done within 2 hours depending on the desired result.
// NO RECOVERY TIME
Some people may experience slight redness and a little swelling but nothing that won't settle down within hours.
// TIME SAVING
Microblading will reduce the amount of time spent filling in your eyebrows however you can still top up with brow creams and gels.
