Despite the popularity of microblading as a treatment, prolific on Instagram for its striking qualities, many of us still don’t know what a microblading procedure actually is. To clear up some myths around microblading, we spoke to our SPMU expert in Dubai.
What is Microblading?
A semi-permanent procedure to improve the look of your eyebrows, microblading is a type of tattoo procedure that uses ink specially formulated for this purpose. A specialist handheld microblading tool is used to draw on thin strokes which mimic the appearance of real eyebrow hair.
Should I consider Microblading?
With so many eyebrow products on the market, it can be impossible to know which is the best for you. Generally, microblading is best for those who use an eyebrow pencil or other products to produce a thicker looking eyebrow. It takes away the hassle of re-applying every day, as well as the fear that the pigment may smudge or lessen throughout the day. If this sounds like you, microblading may well be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Who should do Microblading for me?
There is not much regulation when it comes to cosmetic procedures such as microblading, and as such, you should do plenty of research when deciding on an esthetician to microblade your eyebrows. The best thing you can do is read reviews and visit the salon to see pictures of previous clients’ finished eyebrows as this will give you a good idea of whether they are successful or not. It’s important the salon is clean and tidy, as there is a risk of infection with procedures such as this. Microblading artists usually have to undergo some form of training, so speak to your prospective artist and find out what qualifications they have.
How long does it last?
It can last anywhere from one to three years, depending on your skin type. It can also be affected by sun exposure and lifestyle, but even for oily skin, usually top-ups are only needed once per year. Depending on who you visit, the procedure usually costs from $250 upwards, and with such a long lifespan it’s certainly value for money!
Microblading has surged in popularity over recent years for a reason, so don’t delay and enquire about having your eyebrows microbladed today. You’ll see the effects instantly and they’ll continue to look great for years to come.
