Get the Eyebrows You Want
- Posted on: Mar 30 2019
If you’ve always hated your thin, lifeless eyebrows, or if years of plucking have left them stunted and sparse, you need to check into microblading at AesthetiSpa. Microblading provides a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing that fills in sparse eyebrows with natural hair-like strokes that look just like your natural eyebrows.
What is microblading?
In microblading, our micropigmentation artist, Kim Bunch, uses a handheld pen-like tool to implant pigment into the upper layers of the skin. Her artistic eye creates natural-looking strokes that either fill in or fully replace thinning or non-existent eyebrows.
Is microblading permanent?
Microblading is semi-permanent. The pigment is placed under your skin, but it is not placed at the same depth as a tattoo. This means it will fade over time as the body sheds skin cells. The application usually will last up to a year and a half, but it can be extended with touch-up sessions down the road.
How long does a microblading session take?
Your first visit will take around two hours. At the beginning of the session you will work with Kim to establish the shape and style that you would like to see in your eyebrows. Once the two of you have decided on the shape and style, you will look at multiple pigment color options. You’ll use these to match your hair color, skin tone, and your personal preference. Then Kim will proceed with your microblading.
At the completion of your first session, she’ll schedule a second session for six weeks later. This will involve a second application to ensure the longest duration of your new eyebrows.
Does microblading hurt?
We apply topical numbing anesthetic, so your procedure is not painful.
Is there downtime after microblading?
Your eyebrow area will be red, slightly swollen, and sore to the touch initially. You’ll need to avoid swimming, tanning, prolonged sun exposure, and excessive sweating for two weeks. Initially, your eyebrow color will appear darker than the color you selected. This is because it takes approximately four weeks for the color to completely settle in. At that point, it will be the color you selected, and your new eyebrows will be full and attractive.
