Read on to find out seven key benefits semi-permanent eyebrows through modern techniques.
Seven Benefits of Eyebrow Tattooing and Mircoblading
While eyebrow tattooing and microblading differ a bit in their outcomes and methods, ultimately they share many of the same benefits.
Here are the most impactful pay off’s for getting your eyebrows microbladed or tattooed.
1. Long-lasting, quality results
Both eyebrow tattooing and microblading will provide a more permanent solution to frequent eyebrow mishaps.
Generally, tattooing will last longer but typically yields less exact results. Additionally, microblading can last two to three years.
The reason that micoblading doesn’t last as long is that the ink will not penetrate as deeply into the skin, which can cause it to fade faster. However, this is part of the reason the results tend to look more hairlike.
2. It can look extremely natural
Microblading can look completely natural because of the featherlike application of the ink, as well as through the artistic talent of the eyebrow technician.
The final outcome is almost indistinguishable from regular eyebrows, usually with the main difference being how full and healthy microbladed eyebrows appear.
Moreover, tattooing can also look fairly natural with a talented specialist, and it can depend on your individual eyebrows in terms of the best option.
3. The healing phase is a breeze
There is not a huge amount of healing time needed after your initial appointment.
Typically, it takes between two weeks and one month for the brows to completely heal.
During this time, however, it is very important to avoid the sun, chlorine, harsh products, and scrubs as these can disrupt the healing process.
Moreover, they can also damage the ink before it has time to completely settle in. It is completely normal during this time for the brows to scab over or peel, and this is a sign that your new beautiful brows are almost ready.
After the initial healing phase, there is typically a refinement session to ensure the brows look exactly how they should.
4. It’s painless
While most experienced professional’s use a topical numbing cream to decrease any discomfort, the procedure is painless.
Clients often describe only a slight sensation when getting microblading or tattooed. However, if you tend to have lower pain tolerance, you can request additional numbing cream.
5. It saves you in more ways than one
In the long run, there are so many ways semi-permanent eyebrows can save you.
First and foremost, you should expect to save a ton of time that you would normally spend filling in or dying your eyebrows.
If it even took you three minutes a day to do your brows, that is 1,095 minutes a year! That means finding a more permanent solution could save you almost eighteen and a half hours of your life this year alone!
You would never have to worry about any mistakes or redo’s for your brows either, they would simply be ready to go.
Plus, you won’t have to worry one bit about a little rain or pool time, because your perfect brows would be completely waterproof.
Finally, depending on how much you spend on maintenance and makeup, you could save tons of money by nixing these altogether.
No more last-minute beauty runs for emergency brow makeup, or expensive eyebrow shaping appointments. It’s all taken care of!
6. It takes less than 3 hours
Eyebrow microblading generally only takes two to three hours from start to finish. The first hour is often spent talking about your ideal eyebrow shape, color, and structure.
The rest of the time is the application and the discussion on how to best care for your brows in the long and short term.
As mentioned above, the refinement session, generally at least six weeks from the initial appointment, only takes about half that time.
7. It’s safe and easy
Last but not least, eyebrow tattooing and microblading is safe and easy. It has been perfected over the course of decades, and simply browsing some results can show you how far the industry has come.
When done by a licensed, and professional esthetician the risks are minimal as with any procedure.
With the proper care and support from a qualified professional, you can be well on your way to long-lasting, picturesque brows.
Put the Makeup Down
While microblading and eyebrow tattooing can be a bit of an initial investment, it is well worth the cost for all of the benefits.
For at least a year, you can save yourself the time, effort, and money it takes to maintain well-shaped brows. You can also finally determine the best shape for your face, and maximize the most prominent feature you have.
You might even barely recognize yourself with your new, stunning semi-permanent brows.
