What You Should Know Before Getting Your Eyebrows Done

»Posted by on Dec 19, 2018 in Microblading | 0 comments

If you’re like many people who want to be a part of the bandwagon without really knowing where the ride will take you, don’t be. It pays to know more about the things that you’re joining, or in this case, the eyebrow procedure that you want to get done, before falling hook, line, and sinker for it.

There are different eyebrow procedures that are available to you if you want to change the way you look. Redefining your arches is definitely a good way to enhance your overall appearance. But if you’re like some people who couldn’t care less about their eyebrows, then maybe there’s more than one procedure needed to get your brows to its best shape.

Microblading is some sort of a heaven-sent procedure that a lot of people have tried and still want to try to get the perfect pair of eyebrows that they always wanted. But then, you might want to know more about it before you take the plunge. Here are some not-so-known facts about microblading

1. Your brows will be very dark after the procedure.

You might think that your aesthetician has overdone it, but that’s just the way it is. For the first few days, the shade will look so dark you thought they had just smeared Sharpie on your eyebrows. But don’t worry. The right shade will come out a few days after because the pigment will begin to fade after such time.

2. Prepare for the pain.

If you have a high tolerance for pain, then this shouldn’t be an issue for you at all. But if you’re not, then you have to know that the procedure isn’t totally pain-free. You’ll feel a light tingling sensation even after the aesthetician has applied a numbing cream on your brows. It’s not really that bad but the thing is you shouldn’t believe people saying that the procedure is absolutely pain-free. As a matter of fact, you’ll feel, hear, and be aware of the entire procedure. You’ll hear the blade and needles running about and making tattoos on your brows.

3. You need to do some follow-ups.

Although semi-permanent, the effect of microblading is best achieved if you do a couple of follow-ups of the procedure. The first follow-up is to check whether there are spots that were overlooked by the aesthetician during the first time. The second follow-up is done to prolong the life of the pigment. These follow-ups have to be paid for differently.

4. You may still have to get your brows tinted.

This is especially true for blondes with eyebrows that are not as prominent as they want it to be. So it’s not really right to assume that microblading solves all of your brow woes. At least it won’t if you’re blonde. So don’t throw those tints and gels just yet. You may still need them a few months after.

These are the things that you should know before going for microblading NYC. By being well informed, you can set proper expectations about the procedure. And with the right expectations, lower are the chances that you’ll get frustrated or disappointed.
