There are many people in this world who are born with eyebrows whose sole purpose seems to be frustrating their owners. Generally, this is because they are too thin, causing people to do everything under the sun to try to maintain their upkeep daily. This can be a tiring, frustrating process if you are one of those people, taking up much of your time in the morning or when you are preparing to go out at night. Luckily, technology, as it usually does, has managed to catch up with a human problem and now offers a reliable, if somewhat costly, the solution in the form of microblading. When you go in to for this procedure, the technician can essentially tattoo on strokes that mimic your eyebrows and provide you with that fuller look that you’ve long been seeking.
Of course, people often go into these things without a clear-eyed look at how things will turn out. They go in with unrealistic expectations, especially when there is technology involved, and hope that everything can be solved in one fell swoop of the microblading procedure. Even the foremost technicians who specialize in microblading eyebrows can’t make those kinds of promises. As a result, you should temper your hopes and research exactly what microblading will do for you. In this way, you’ll likely come away with a much more positive experience overall. Here are some misconceptions that you’ll want to keep in check.
- Microblading Is Painless
Well, pain can be minimized by a topical anesthetic provided in the area, but it won’t necessarily nullify all of it. In addition, you are likely to be dealing with discomfort from the scratching in the area in question where the needle is hitting your skin. Just as getting a tattoo on your skin isn’t likely to be a walk in the park, you shouldn’t expect microblading to be the most pleasant experience you’ve ever had either.
- Microblading Is Permanent
This might be the most common misconception of them all when it comes to microblading. After a while, the ink will start to fade, eventually lightening the desired effect. When that happens is likely to differ depending upon the tone of your skin and its oiliness. But you can expect the effect to wear off sometime around a year to two after you first get the procedure done, meaning that you would likely have to go back for more if you want to get your look back.
- Microblading Provides Immediate Results
You might have to resign yourself to the fact that your eyebrows will look significantly darker than usual for the first week or so after the procedure. Since that is the case, you shouldn’t expect that you are going to go in one day and be ready for a night on the town with the desired effect completely in place.
Again, microblading is an extremely effective procedure that those with thin brows should certainly contemplate. Just keep your expectations in check for the best possible results.
