Maintaining perfect eyebrows can be time-consuming and expensive. To make things easier, a semi-permanent solution like eyebrow microblading can be a great choice. Microblading blends right in with your natural brows and enhances your facial balance and overall attractiveness with minimal maintenance.
What Is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing procedure that reshapes the eyebrows and gives them a fuller look. The process of microblading is done by hand, without the use of a machine. A licensed aesthetician will use a specialized tool to add pigment to your brows.
Small, thin needles (microblades) are pressed into the skin with your pigment of choice, and the top layer of skin is transformed to create more pleasing eyebrows. Since this technique is done entirely by hand, your aesthetician has more control over the results of the procedure.
Each new eyebrow hair is carefully drawn in to create natural and beautiful brows. However, the results of the procedure are not permanent and only last around one to three years.
This technique is ideal for people who want to keep up with the latest eyebrow trends but don’t have the time to fill in their eyebrows every day. People with thin or non-existent eyebrows also prefer this procedure, because they no longer have to pencil in their brows.
How Does Microblading Work and What Can You Expect?
Once you have scheduled your procedure, you will come into our office for your microblading treatment. Our team will help you check in and settle into one of our treatment rooms. They will also answer any last questions you may have.
The procedure itself is performed by our licensed aesthetician at Becker Plastics office in Princeton, NJ under the guidance of facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Nicole Schrader.
After you are comfortably seated, the procedure will begin. Your skin will be disinfected and a topical numbing cream will be applied. After the numbing cream takes effect, your aesthetician will begin measuring your eyebrows and drawing an outline to create the new shape and size of your brows.
When the outline is done, and you are happy, the aesthetician will begin filling in your eyebrows with the microblading tool. Each hair is individually drawn into the skin with thin needles.
The microblade will make a small incision and deposit color to create a pleasing and full brow shape. Typically, it takes two hours to completely microblade the eyebrows.
MICROBLADING RECOVERY TIME
Microblading does require some recovery time since the skin needs time to heal. The recovery process can take anywhere from 25 to 30 days. Your eyebrows will need to stay dry for the first ten days after your procedure.
This means that you need to be careful when you wash your hair, exercise, or engage in other strenuous activities. Keeping the eyebrows dry can be a little annoying, but this is an important part of the recovery process.
On your first few days of healing, expect your eyebrows to look a lot darker and fuller. The pigment is just settling in and there could be some redness and tenderness as well.
Within the next couple of days, your skin should feel fine and your eyebrows will thicken more. By the fifth day, you will notice some flaking and scabbing. The scabbing and flaking are entirely normal.
Don’t pick at your eyebrows as this can create skin damage and impact the final look of your eyebrows. Wait for the flaking to stop and let your skin heal naturally. Flaking will stop around the eighth day of healing.
It can take up to a full 30 days for your skin to entirely heal up and for the color of your brows to settle. After six weeks, we recommend coming in for a follow-up appointment to touch up any missed spots and make sure your skin has healed fully.
