Everything would be perfect in that perfect world we sometimes dream about, and that would include even naturally perfect eyebrows.
Unfortunately, that world of perfection does not exist, and those perfect eyebrows directly are few and far between!
The truth of the matter is that there are those eyebrows out there that can look perfect with just a minimal amount of effort, but there are much more that genuinely require a lot of assistance to look their best.
The great news today for those seeking it is that eyebrow microblading is available to help those needing it to make their eyebrows look like they have always dreamed they could look!
There are many different names that eyebrow microblading goes by such as eyebrow feathering, eyebrow embroidery, micropigmentation, microstroking and 3D eyebrows.
The truth of the matter is that whatever name used, for more than 25 years now the procedure has enjoyed popularity in parts of Europe and Asia, even though it is relatively new here.
The popularity of microblading eyebrows continues to grow and grow in the United States, and the techniques involved in it also continue to improve all the time significantly.
Similar to an exactoknife, the microblade tool which is used, but rather than one large blade, there are instead a number of microneedles. The microblade, into a selected pigment color, is dipped and then put to use making a micro stroke, or first cut, in the skin.
The result of this process is that implanted into the skin is the pigment, and this is identified as micropigmentation. When the technique is done correctly, the results will be that the microblade eyebrow will look natural and very beautiful as well.
Understanding the microblading healing process, and strict adherence to the microblading aftercare instructions will yield the very best possible healed results.
The fact of the matter is that many people comment that the procedure involved is something like a tattoo and the truth is that they are correct. To be even more specific, a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo is what microblading is.
It should be understood, however, that unlike those tattooed eyebrows people remember from days gone by that faded out into all sorts of beautiful shades of pink and blue, this is not what they are.
Microblading is far superior to those results that permanent cosmetics are known for because of two significant differences.
The first difference is that for microblading, the pigment type put to use as an iron oxide base. This permits over time the color to fade softly, not like the permanent cosmetic tattoos that were formerly used in the past. The truth of the matter is that for decades now, iron oxide has been an ingredient favorite in the cosmetics field like eyeshadow, lipstick, blush, and foundation.
The second difference is that the microblading pigment which is used is not implanted as deeply into the skin as is the permanent cosmetic procedures depth which is used. The upper layer of the dermis is the proper depth for the inserted color, during the microblading procedure. The color retention will be reduced if the microstroke fails to go deep enough. Also, should it be too thick, scarring will be caused, and instead of their looking crisp and elegant, the healed strokes will look blurry.
What makes the results of microblading the appearance of eyebrows that are natural looking is the combination of the iron oxide base and the pigment being implanted to the correct depth. It is also prevented fading into unnatural shades by the semi-permanent qualities of the microblading pigment. The other positives are that no daily upkeep is required and the eyebrows look natural.
It will depend on the skin type and the individual’s lifestyle just how long the microbladed brows will last as they are semi-permanent. Anywhere from one to three years is the standard. Additionally, the quality of the microblading clinic will dictate how long the eyebrows last.
To keep the strokes looking crisp and the color vibrant, we suggest a touch up perhaps 12-18 months after the procedure is performed.
