Looking for that perfect brow? No doubt about it, whether you like them arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are our most important facial feature. There are so many ways to improve and polish the look of our brows. We can apply powder, gel or pencil them in. They all work well but you do make a commitment to time each day as you apply your masterful stroke to creating that “perfect brow”. Many women have opted for classic tattoing which is also a viable option but mistakes are more noticeable and they do have a less than natural look.
Ladies, do not despair, for their now exists a more natural appearing option that delivers semipermanent results. What is this new “magic” you might ask? It’s called microblading and is available in a town near you! Though microblading is tattoing, it provides a “smoke and mirrors” effect by using strokes that look like real hairs. Microblading is perfect for those who want to reconstruct or definr their brows. It’s most effective at filling in gaps or over tweezed brows. Need a bit of an arch? Microblading is perfect for you.
Microblading differs from tattooing in that a special pen is used to draw individual strokes one by one. It is a meticulous process and requires around two hours to complete. First, your brows are created with a regular brow pencil which allows the technician to create along with you, the best possible brow shape for your face. Before starting the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to the area. There still may be a bit of discomfort but it is mild.
The best part is, NO DOWN TIME! It is recommended in a month’s time to do a follow up treatment to assure your brows are perfect. No special care is required and the color lasts up to three years. The cost varies depending on the area you live in between $500-$800. Though a bit pricy, most women agree that waking up with perfect brows every morning is well worth the cost.
I’ve included a video of an actual microblading procedure so you can view the various aspects and final result of the procedure. Hopefully it will answer any questions you have. If you still have questions or perhaps you’ve had the procedure and want to share, I’d love to hear from you.
