Create Thicker, Defined Brows with Microblading

Posted on February 23rd, 2017 in Microblading

Now more than ever, men and women are becoming more aware of their eyebrows and how they complement their facial features, due to celebrities like Cara Delevingne who have brought back the trend of thicker and fuller brows. This can pose a problem for those who plucked their brows into the thin shape that was fashionable in the ‘90s, or those whose eyebrows have lost pigment over the years. Thankfully, there is now a solution for too-thin and sparse brows: microblading.

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a popular technique to fill in and shape the eyebrows. A very fine row of needles is used to create precise, hair-like strokes by depositing pigment underneath the skin. Unlike other permanent makeup options, microblading is much more precise and produces very natural-looking results.

This technique works by adding the appearance of brow hairs to the brow, shaping and defining them to best complement the patient’s facial features. Microblading is semi-permanent, lasting one to three years. However, because microblading does not embed pigments as deeply as traditional tattooing, touch-ups may be required to maintain your look.

The Appointment

If you decide that you would like to get in on this popular new treatment, you should know what to expect during your appointment. First, patients should know that treatment takes between one and a half to two hours to complete. Next, a consultation must take place before the microblading is done to determine the shape, size, and color you would like your brows to be.

The brow area will then be numbed to ensure a comfortable experience. The brows are outlined in pencil to create a stencil for our professional microblader to follow. Then, the pigment is precisely placed into the skin to create your new brows!

Following treatment, you may experience red or swollen skin around the treatment areas. This is normal, and will completely go away once the skin has healed.

It is no surprise that Botox cosmetic is still the most popular minimally invasive anti-aging treatment procedure in the United States. Botox has both aesthetic and medical purposes, but of course it’s aesthetic uses are the most popular. Botox is made of Botulinum Toxin Type A, which blocks the nerve signals that control the contracting of your facial muscles. Over time, repeated facial expressions can cause fine to deep lines, but this can be lessened by relaxing your muscles with Botox.

The Benefits

• Quick & Minimally Invasive
Botox is an injection that isn’t very painful and can be completed quickly with little to no downtime.
• A Smoother Appearance
Many people express the fear of their “resting face” looking worried or angry because of lines and wrinkles. Botox can relax these muscles to produce a softer, smoother, and more welcoming appearance.
• Looking Well-Rested
After fine lines and wrinkles are softened, your skin will appear fresh and revitalized in a subtle and natural way.
• It’s Effective for Preventive Use
Botox is gaining popularity in younger patients in their twenties. Even if these patients have little to no lines or wrinkles, they can use Botox to delay wrinkles forming in the future by weakening the muscles that cause them.

Botox Cosmetic is a very safe and effective way to treat wrinkles and fine lines. With all of the benefits and range of patients it can treat, it’s unlikely its popularity will slow down anytime soon.
