What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique used to create the illusion of fuller brows. "With this method I can create almost any look: from a very natural light finish to a beautifully bold brow. First, is the consultation is about the best brow shape for your face and choosing a color that matches the natural hair color and skin undertone. The brow area is then cleaned and numbed for the treatment. Instead of using a tattoo machine, a little handheld tool is used to manually draw hair strokes. Lastly, an aftercare ointment is applied to help with the healing process.
How long do they last?
Not forever, but way longer than your waterproof eyebrow gel, that's for sure! In fact, according to Aava, microblading can last anywhere from one to three years, depending on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, and the products that you use. However, touch-ups are commonly needed about once a year, especially for those with oily skin, as the ink tends to fade and blur faster.
