Tired of spending time doing your eyebrows every morning? Looking for a long-lasting way of defining your eyebrows?  If so, then you may want to consider eyebrow microblading, a new technique that creates the appearance of fuller, more defined eyebrows.

This treatment involves using a special tool to insert pigment into the skin, creating the illusion of fuller, more defined eyebrows. Those results make eyebrow microblading a great option for those who have sparse or light eyebrows.

Over the past few years, eyebrow microblading has gone by a number of names, including microstroking, feather tattooing, and eyebrow tattooing. To help clear up questions about just what eyebrow microblading is and who can benefit from it, we’re answering your microblading FAQs below!

What are the benefits of eyebrow microblading?

Are you considering eyebrow microblading?  This semi-permanent makeup technique can give you natural-looking, fuller brows during an appointment that generally lasts about two hours.

Here are five benefits of eyebrow microblading:

  1. Saves Time – If you’re tired of spending time each morning filling in your brows, microblading can save you time. With microbladed brows, you’ll wake up each day with beautiful, full brows.

  2. Natural-Looking Brows – If you’re concerned about looking like you’ve had work done, don’t be. Microblading is a technique that creates very natural-looking brows.

  3. Semi-Permanent Results – If you’re not ready for a permanent change, microblading is a great option. The results last up to 3 years, and then you can decide if you want to have them refreshed.

  4. Relatively Painless – Some people worry about the pain of microblading, but it’s relatively painless. The numbing cream that is applied before the procedure helps to minimize any discomfort.

  5. Affordable Treatment – Compared to other cosmetic procedures, microblading is quite affordable. The initial investment is worth it for the time and money you’ll save in the long run.

Who is a good candidate for eyebrow microblading?

Given the benefits of microblading, there are three groups of people that tend to be the best candidates for this kind of treatment:

  1. Those with over-plucked or sparse brows who are looking to add fullness.

  2. Those with gaps in their brows who are looking to achieve a more uniform shape.

  3. Those who have lost all or most of their brows due to a medical condition.

… And who isn’t a good candidate for eyebrow microblading?

Though microblading has a number of advantages, there are some people that should not get microblading. They include:

  1. Those with sensitive skin – including those with keratosis pilaris, breakouts, or cystic – may find those conditions exacerbated by microblading.

  2. Those with oily skin can enjoy some of the benefits of microblading, but that oil will make the results fade faster.

  3. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not get microbladed to avoid even the low risk of infection.

How long does eyebrow microblading last?

Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent makeup treatment that can last anywhere from 12 to 30 months.

How long they last depends on a number of factors. Those include your skin type, how well you take care of your brows, and how often you expose them to the sun. The latter is especially important, because prolonged sun exposure can cause the pigment to fade quickly.

What are the risks associated with eyebrow microblading?

There are relatively few risks associated with eyebrow microblading and they can usually be avoided.

The most common risks are infections, allergic reactions, and scarring. Infections can usually be avoided by using sterile needles and clean tools. Allergic reactions can be avoided by patch testing before the procedure. Scarring can be avoided by not picking at the scabs.

Is DIY eyebrow microblading a good idea?

There’s no denying that a good set of eyebrows can transform your face, accentuating your natural beauty, and inspiring even more confidence. Whether you’re going for a natural look or something more glam, well-groomed brows can make all the difference.

Given that, it’s no surprise that more and more people are turning to DIY eyebrow microblading to get the perfect brows. But is DIY eyebrow microblading a good idea?

Unfortunately, there’s a lot that can go wrong with DIY eyebrow microblading. If you don’t have a steady hand, you can end up with uneven, patchy brows. Though microblading isn’t painful, even a small amount of discomfort can affect your concentration and the quality of the results.
