On Trend: Microbladed Brows
May 02, 2018 09:52PM
Thick, full eyebrows are in style and the trend doesn’t seem to be losing steam anytime soon. For those who aren’t naturally gifted with the look, there’s a service that can help: microblading.
Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hair stroke technique. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no “spilling” under the skin.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from microblading, as well as people who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match the original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two-week period.
It is crucial to have a touch-up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment. The results can last anywhere from one to three years, depending on different factors affecting the procedure.
