5 Frequently Asked Questions About Microblading

A face of make-up isn’t complete without eyebrows. Once upon a time in the 90s, pencil thin brows were all the range. However, full, bushy brows are now an emerging trend; with no sign of stopping anytime soon. Since we left behind the pencil thin brows, many techniques have been created to achieve the full brow effect, but none have been as successful as microblading.

Microblading is the secret to faking fuller-looking brows that appear completely natural. As a semi-permanent makeup salon in Chelmsford, we are often asked many questions about the process. With this in mind, here’s five questions emBeauty is often asked about microblading.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is all about creating natural-looking, fuller brows that best suit the shape of your face. It is ideal for individuals who are experiencing hair loss or have thin and sparse brows. Microblading is done using a hand tool and the PhiBrow technique to shape your brows according to your individual facial features. This is done to create a hair effect on the skin that does not compromise natural hair growth.

Can You Be Allergic To Microblading?

While there are people who are sensitive or allergic to some pigments, this is an extremely rare case. Despite this, our Chelmsford microblading team use high quality pigments and require a patch test 24 hours before providing treatment. This will help to rule out any allergic reactions to the pigment.

Does It Hurt?

There is minimal pain that comes from microblading, although this is relevant to each individual person. Clients can feel an uncomfortable scratch during the procedure and may experience swelling, soreness and tenderness after the treatment but this usually subsides after an hour.

What Happens When You Get Your Eyebrows Microbladed?

Before the treatment begins, your brows are measured to suit your face and features. Once measured, we use sterile and disposable tools to apply the PhiBrows microblading pigments to create the hairline strokes. Once this is complete, we then add a final layer of pigment for five minutes, clean the area and reveal your new, beautiful brows!

How Long Does Microblading Last?

The lasting duration of your microbladed brows will depend on your skin type and lifestyle. People with oily skin may find that the microblading only lasts a few months before needing to top up. Yet those with dry and mature skin can see their brows lasting up to 18 months.
