Bigger eyebrows are back en vogue, and everyone from Carla Delevingne to the Kardashians is sporting bushier brows. But the problem is, for years the trend has been to thin out eyebrows and to create super thin pencil lines, and brows are not known for growing back very well…
Fortunately there’s a solution that will solve your lack of brows, and although you could use Lancome makeup to fill them in, there is a more permanent option. We’re talking about microblading, the hottest new cosmetic procedure on the block.
If you’re suffering from years of eyebrows plucking microblading will give you thicker, fuller brows that look au naturel.
Essentially, microblading is a feathery tattoo technique that uses a specialized tool that is not mechanized. Instead of a more solid block of colour, it creates the illusion of real hairs, and the fine strokes make the end result look incredibly natural.
Is it permanent?
If you prefer less commitment you can buy cosmetics like https://www.carapharmacy.com/en/Lancome/b-829.aspx that can be washed off after wear. Technically, microblading is semi-permanent, but with good aftercare and regular touch ups it can last forever.
Is it sore?
It is not as sore as a tattoo but you may feel some discomfort during the procedure. Numbing cream is often used to make the process more tolerable. The feeling is a bit like light scratches, and many say that it’s no worse than a wax or having your eyebrows threaded.
How long does the procedure take?
Generally it takes between an hour and two. Your beautician will pluck any stray hairs, you’ll decide on a shape and colour and then the procedure will begin.
How long does it take to heal?
Just like a tattoo it can take a few weeks to heal, and you will have a period of scabbing. It may also itch a bit, but you can apply cream that has been recommended by your beautician. Initially you may think the result is a bit dark, but as it heals it lightens, and a professional will always ensure the colour they selected for you will give the desired result.
Do you need touch ups?
Generally yes, around four to six weeks after the healing process has finished you may need a few touch ups to acquire the look you are going for.
