If you want to transform the look of your eyebrows and get sleek results that don’t require using a pencil or powder every day to maintain, then microblading might be worth considering. Keep reading to find out more about our Microblading New Malden service along with some information about what Microblading is, what to expect, and some dos and don’ts to help you get the results you want.
What is Microblading?
Our Microblading New Malden service is a semi-permanent makeup solution that fills and defines the eyebrows. It uses pigment that lasts for around 12-15 months. After this period of time, you can choose to either let the eyebrows fade to your natural brows or get a top-up procedure to keep your look fresh. Microbladed eyebrows have visible pigment and strokes that might look like a tattoo. However, unlike typical tattoos, they do fade over time.
If you are considering our Microblading New Malden service as your next beauty procedure, then here are some FAQs you might be looking for the answer to.
Is Microblading Painful?
As part of our Microblading New Malden service we use a super-fine needle to deposit pigment into the surface of your skin. The practitioner will achieve this using a pen-like tool that has tiny needles on the end. This scratches your skin, using light, feather strokes to create the appearance of realistic hairs that fill your brows. While it can be slightly uncomfortable, you don’t have to worry about pain with microblading. It feels quite similar to hair removal techniques like eyebrow threading. A numbing cream will be applied beforehand to improve your comfort throughout.
How Long is the Microblading Procedure?
The entire procedure for microblading can last from around ninety minutes to two hours. This will vary depending on the finished style that you want to achieve with the procedure, and how much pigment needs to be added for this. The sparser your natural brows are, and the thicker and fuller you want your eyebrows to look when finished, the longer you can expect it to take. You’ll be given a general estimate before starting.
How Long Does Microblading Last?
Our Microblading Malden service lasts for around 12-15 months with the right care. After this time, you will start to notice some visible fading of the pigment and may need to use products like eyebrow pencil or powder again. You can choose to let it fade or have a top-up procedure to keep your eyebrows looking the same.
Dos and Don’ts of Microblading
There are several things that you can either do or avoid before and after having a microblading procedure to help you get the best results for your brows.
