5 Things You Need to Know About Microblading
How would you like to roll out of bed in the morning with perfectly shaped, natural looking eyebrows? Sounds like a fantasy, but the demand for this service has exploded since 2015, and microblading is one of the top search words on Google.
If you’re tired of the day-to-day process of applying makeup, or you’re looking for a way to achieve a naturally polished appearance, then you may be wondering if microblading is the right choice. Microblading simulates the look of individual brow hairs, so whether you have sparse or missing brow hair, the procedure can give you a natural look with minimal maintenance.
At Jeanette Wirz Permanent Cosmetic Makeup, we’ve been providing permanent cosmetic makeup services for more than 18 years, and since microblading (also known as brow embroidery, feathered brows, or 3-D brows) may be on your wish list, we thought we’d share some of the basics with you, so that you can make an informed decision about this popular procedure that should only be performed by a Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional. The Truth About Microblading
Microblading is a form of tattooing. It’s important for you to know that this procedure is not temporary or semi-permanent. Pigment must be deposited into the dermis for it to be retained by the body; otherwise, it would be eliminated during the healing process. While your color can fade with time and sun exposure, it will rarely disappear entirely. So, if you’re thinking of “trying microblading” with the belief that it will be gone in a matter of months, that’s rarely the case.
There are no “blades” involved. There’s a lot of misinformation about the tools used to create permanent eyebrows, but we never use scalpels or blades of any kind. Microblading is achieved by depositing pigment with a series of miniscule needles. The procedure does carry some discomfort, but numbing creams are used to make your experience as painless as possible.
The process is completely unique to each person. If you’re tired of using a brow template or custom mixing colored powder to achieve the right color, then microblading can be extremely freeing. Your brow shape and color will be designed during your appointment, so you’ll know exactly what the finished result will look like. The pigments are chosen based on your personal skin tone and hair color, and the final shape will be designed to accentuate your features without looking drawn on. Your microblading artist is a well-trained professional. Some procedures should never be performed without professional training, and microblading is one of them. Here in Tennessee, each artisan must be a licensed tattoo artist or be under a physician’s supervision. This ensures that professionals also know how to avoid cross-contamination. Your safety is of paramount importance to us, and that’s why we proudly display the seal of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) on our website.
Microblading is affordable. Compared to many cosmetic procedures, microblading costs less and doesn’t require extensive maintenance. Your initial charge covers your consultation, procedure, and follow-up appointment where any necessary touch-ups will be made. We dedicate two hours for your procedure, so we can discuss color choices and determine the best shape for your face. Touch-ups are only necessary every 12–18 months, so upkeep is minimal, and you won’t need to come to the office regularly.
Ultimately, microblading should leave you feeling confident in your appearance, and that means hiring a cosmetic tattoo artist with a proven track record in permanent makeup. Jeanette has been patiently and successfully providing beautifying results for over 30 years and looks forward to helping you achieve your most beautiful you.
