This is a safe and effective technique used for filling out eyebrows with pigments. Advanced Skin Care & Permanent MakeUp in Libertyville, Illinois offers microblading for individuals who want thicker or fuller eyebrows.

Microblading Q & A

How does microblading work?

Microblading involves the use of a hand tool that etches pigments into the top layer of skin to fill out eyebrows. The pigments used blend with the individual’s natural eyebrow color. The fine needles that etch these pigments create precise yet natural-looking lines that don’t fade or blur. This provides individuals with eyebrows that have a thicker and more natural appearance.

How long do microblading sessions take?

Microblading generally takes a few hours during the initial treatment. The session involves selecting the right pigment and shaping the eyebrows to the individual’s satisfaction. The exact length of time this first visit takes depends on how much of the natural eyebrow needs to be filled in. Individuals can also expect to visit their esthetician for touch-up sessions afterwards.

What’s the recovery process like?

Individuals who get microblading should expect redness in the affected area after their session. The pigment color should also look darker than normal during this time. The pigment gets lighter as the skin heals. In general, it takes between 1-2 weeks for the eyebrow areas to fully heal. Individuals should avoid touching the small scabs that form as the skin heals. After 2 weeks, individuals should expect the skin in the affected area to have a much lighter appearance as tissue continues to heal from the inside. After the skin heals, the chosen pigment color sets in.

Are touch-up sessions needed?

Touch-up sessions are an important part of ensuring that enhanced eyebrows maintain a natural look. Individuals can plan on coming for a touch-up roughly 4-6 weeks after their first session. The touch-up session doesn’t take as long as the initial one. The session is used for adjusting pigment color if needed or adding thickness. Individuals can expect their enhanced eyebrows to last for 1-3 years.

Does microblading hurt?

Microblading shouldn’t cause considerable discomfort. Some individuals might require the use of a topical anesthetic to numb the area if they’re concerned about the way microblading feels. While some individuals don’t feel anything during their treatment, others feel light scratches.
