Maintaining well-groomed eyebrows is a crucial aspect of one's appearance, as they play a vital role in shaping our facial expressions.
Regular grooming and filling in gaps with eyebrow shadow can be a tedious task, especially for busy women. The desire for a long-lasting, perfectly shaped brow that accentuates one's face is universal. However, incorrect grooming practices can lead to weakened, thinning eyebrows over time.
If you possess naturally thick, dark eyebrows, consider yourself lucky. But for those with fair skin and fine hair, achieving the desired brow shape may require a bit more effort.
In this article, we're answering the most frequently asked questions about Microblading in Antalya, including the procedure, duration and aftercare.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that involves the use of the natural bristle technique with fine needles to deposit pigment into the skin to create the appearance of fuller, more defined eyebrows.
This method can restore volume and shape to thin, damaged eyebrows, giving you a polished look that lasts for a long time.
With microblading, you can enjoy the beauty of your perfectly shaped eyebrows without the need for daily maintenance.
How is the Bristle Technique used to create Eyebrows?
The bristle technique involves creating the appearance of natural-looking eyebrows by filling in gaps and sparse areas with fine, hair-like lines made with semi-permanent makeup pigment.
These lines are drawn in the same color and direction as your natural brow hair, mimicking the look of real hair. The pigment is applied in the upper layers of the skin, resulting in a semi-permanent tattoo that can last for several months before needing to be retouched.
As these hair-like lines are made to blend in with your natural brows, it can be difficult for others to distinguish them from real hair.
Does Microblading Hurt?
Before the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to minimize any discomfort that may be caused by the needles. The Microblading technique is done close to the surface of the skin and results in a precise and clear image. Pigment is inserted using needles under the epidermis.
It is important to note that the pain is minimal and manageable.
How Many Microblading Sessions are Required to Complete the Eyebrow Procedure?
The number of sessions needed may vary depending on the individual's skin type. Pigment may not take in certain areas after the first session, but these areas will be refilled during the 2nd and 3rd sessions. It's possible that separate sessions may be needed for each eyebrow.
Generally, the procedure can be completed with 2 to 3 sessions.
How long does Microblading last?
Microblading typically lasts for around 12 months, however, factors such as the technique used, the pigment quality and an individual's skin type may affect the duration.
Oily skin types tend to have shorter lasting results, while dry skin types may see longer lasting results.
Will the color of my Microbladed eyebrows change over time?
The color of your skin undertone, rather than the color of your eyebrows, is the main concern when it comes to color change.
A skilled permanent makeup artist who understands pigmentology will begin the process by analyzing your skin, so that the color will not change when applied at the correct temperature.
It is important to note that the expertise and experience of the person performing the procedure is crucial for this.
Is it possible to remove Microblading and if so, what are the methods?
Yes, Microblading can be removed if desired, but it is recommended to make careful choices from the start to avoid the need for removal later.
There are two methods of removal for permanent makeup: using remover solutions, or laser removal.
1. Removing Microblading with remover solutions
This process involves applying acidic solutions to the pigments that have been inserted into the skin. The solutions work to separate the pigments from the skin, which allows them to be removed from the surface.
This process typically requires 1 or 2 sessions to be completed. If the pigment used in the initial procedure was not made from organic materials, the removal process may take longer.
2. Laser Removal
This method involves using a laser to target the pigments that need to be removed. The laser breaks down the pigments, allowing them to be removed from the skin.
This process typically requires 1 or 2 sessions to be completed.
When is the best time to get Microblading done?
The time of year does not have a significant impact on the Microblading process. The most important thing is to avoid getting your eyebrows wet for 2-3 days after the procedure.
If you have plans to go on a beach vacation soon after the procedure, it is best to delay the procedure until after your trip. It is best to schedule the procedure for a time when you can keep your eyebrows dry for 3-5 days.
Who Should Avoid Microblading?
Individuals who are currently receiving treatment for any health condition should consult with their doctor before undergoing the Microblading procedure. Even though the products used in Microblading are organic and approved by health organizations, they may interact negatively with any ongoing treatment you are receiving.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women should also avoid Microblading, as the hormonal changes that occur during these times can make the procedure less safe. Even though the products used in Microblading do not harm human health, it is still not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women to get permanent makeup.
What should be avoided after Microblading?
It is important to avoid sunbathing, visiting a tanning salon, using chemical facial cleaning products, using fruit acid microdermabrasion, and applying creams with regenerative factors for 30 days after the Microblading procedure.
Additionally, laser treatments should not be performed on the treated area.
What is the aftercare for Microblading?
During the first week following the procedure, it is recommended to only apply Vaseline or wax to the eyebrows. Avoid using creams with healing properties. Additionally, it is important to avoid sun exposure and UV rays during the healing process.
