Undergoing certain procedures is not a matter of the general health of the body anymore. The beauty business has become so powerfully strong in the last decade, with many people opting for semi-permanent makeup. However, one of the most popular procedures in this department is definitely microblading. But what is microblading, and is it safe? Is everyone eligible for this procedure? And finally, are there any other benefits to this then just getting having perfectly shaped eyebrows?
Eyebrows are extremely important in this day and age, especially with millennials. Probably due to the fact that everything’s online now, and we get to follow the lives of our favorite celebrities much more closely than before – to such an extent that we basically know which celebrity underwent which beauty procedure, microblading eyebrows included. But what is actually microblading?
This procedure resembles tattooing your face but with a small difference. As opposed to classic tattoos that are completely permanent, microblading eyebrows is semi-permanent. This means that the eyebrows will stay on one’s face from 12 months up to 3 years, depending of the quality of the artist and the general state of the skin. During the process, the artist makes small incisions into the skin of the client, and using thin, hair-like strokes creates the exact shape that the client wants.
One of the questions that many ask before opting for this procedure is whether microblading is safe or not. Just like tattooing, getting your eyebrows microbladed is a perfectly safe procedure if you choose the right artists. First of all, it cannot be regarded as painful as the artist will use a numbing ointment which will help you not feel (or feel just a little bit) the small incisions that are being made. After the procedure, you need to pay special attention to the way you treat your eyebrows. Unless you do this correctly, there might be certain risks such as infection, allergic reactions or the fact that they’re not done in a good way, or the way you wanted to. This is why it’s very important to choose your artist wisely, which brings us to our next question:
Just like a proper preparation and following the proper aftercare routine, choosing the best possible artist should be your priority. There is a plethora of artists that offer this service, and it is your job to find the one you think (more importantly know) is the best. The first thing you need to be looking for is a certified one, and opting for an artist who passed the high-quality PhiBrows training is probably the best choice. A good artist such as this one will take great care of you and your eyebrows before, during and after the procedure, which is extremely important. Bear in mind that this is not something that you should be saving your money on – spend as much as you have to but make sure to choose someone who you will be satisfied with.
The most obvious benefit of microblading is that it enhances the aesthetics of your face in the exact way that you wanted it to. However, even it doesn’t have any physical health benefits, it surely has mental ones. Namely, being satisfied with your eyebrows and the way they look on your face can significantly enhance your self-esteem and make you much more confident and satisfied with yourself. Being confident can definitely lower the chances of being depressed.
Most people qualify as good candidates for the procedure, but there certainly are those who need to think about it a bit more. Waiting for some time more or having a consultation session with the certified artist that you chose is in this case the best option. There are certain pre-existing conditions that can affect the final outlook of your brows, such as:
Getting microbladed eyebrows is perhaps not something that’s necessary, but if it’s going to help you feel more secure about yourself and your look, and if it’s something that you’ve always wanted to do – you should do it. It’s perfectly safe, and can be done in a great way if you choose the right artist and religiously follow the aftercare instructions. This is rather important as it can make or break any eyebrow look, so make sure to follow them step by step.
