Natural Looking Brows with Microblading

microblading

Are you sick of filling in your eyebrows every day? Well, how does ditching that part of your makeup routine sound? Microblading treatment is a way to get beautiful full brows that will last for months. It’s a semi-permanent form of brow tattooing. If the thought of tattoos seems a little scary, don’t worry. The process hurts way less than you would think, and the results don’t last forever like a traditional tattoo.

Keep reading to find out how the cosmetic skin care enhancement team at Winston Salem Dermatology can give you perfect brows without the extra effort.

How does Microblading Work?

Microblading will give you full brows without the need for makeup. The procedure is performed by a trained technician. They will carefully draw your brows using a special tool. The tool cuts into your skin and implants pigment into the cuts. This involves hundreds of tiny strokes that build a texture that looks like your natural eyebrow hair. The best part? The results usually last 12 to 18 months.

What Does the Microblading Healing Process Look and Feel Like?

After your microblading procedure, your skin will be a little red and the brows will look really dark, but don’t worry because that will all calm down. Here are some steps you’ll have to take to care for your brows during the microblading healing process:

  • Two hours after the procedure, use a wet cotton swab that’s been dipped in sterilized water to get rid of any excess due
  • Avoid getting the area wet for up to 10 days. So, you’ll have to try to keep your face dry while you take a shower.
  • Don’t wear makeup for at least a week
  • Don’t pick at scabs or itch the eyebrow area
  • Avoid excessive sweating, saunas, and swimming until the area is completely healed
  • Use only the medication your dermatologist gives you or recommends
  • Keep your hair away from your brow line

It will take about 7 to 14 days for the skin to start healing and for the pigment to fade to the shade it is supposed to be.

How Long Does Microblading Last?

How long your microblading lasts will depend on your skin type. The results can last one to three years. If your skin type is oiler, the pigment could fade faster. You will probably go back in four weeks after your procedure to look at the results after everything has healed. Some people choose to pay a little extra money and get a touch up during that appointment. But typically, you won’t need to get any touch-ups before the 12-month period.

How Much Does Microblading Cost?

Microblading isn’t cheap. The price will vary depending on where you live and who does the procedure. Microblading Treatment can vary in price from $500 to $2,000. Before you start saving for your procedure, be sure to call Winston Salem Dermatology for pricing details.

Maintaining Your Microblading Eyebrows

You’ll want to protect your microblading investment. You can optimize your microblading results by taking care of your skin. Be sure to apply sunscreen to the microbladed area to prevent fading.  To maintain the look, you’ll probably want to repeat the microblading procedure in about two years.
