The Microblading Treatment
Many women lose their eyebrows because of alopecia others may have thin growth of the eyebrows. But now you don’t need to worry. You can try microblading. But first, get some information about the treatment.
About the Treatment
Microblading is a treatment that helps you to get semi-permanent eyebrows that looks thicker and natural. The process involves drawing the hair manually. It is like a tattoo but only semi-permanent.
How Is It Different From a Tattoo?
In this treatment, the experts use a hand tool. It creates thin hairlike strokes. The dye particles used in microblading are less concentrated than the ones used in a tattoo. And it fades away after a few years and not permanent. The process is also not painful as the tattoos.
Choose the shape of the eyebrows you want for yourself, and you think it will look good on you. The experts will make your eyebrows the way you want. The whole process takes 2-3 hours. But it does not end there.
After you heal from the first treatment, it is compulsory to get another appointment for the touch-up, generally after 4-6 weeks of the first treatment.
Touch Up Requirements
After the initial process of the treatment, the brow may seem to fade away. For correction and better result, the touch-up and the second appointment is compulsory. Otherwise, the entire process will not be complete. It takes at least seven days to heal after the second touch-up procedure.
After the second touch up there is generally no need to get another before 12 months. However, if you want your eyebrows to stay the same, you should make appointments every 12 months. It lasts for not more than three years.
Your skin type becomes a major factor for its longevity. For instance, if someone has oily skin, their brows will tend to fade away faster.

Using sunscreen can help your brows to last longer. Picking scabs over the tiny cuts are not allowed. The use of acids or retinoids is also not allowed. It can lead to premature fading of the pigments.
This treatment can give you beautiful thick eyebrows. One of the good things about the process is it does not cause much pain. However, microblading aftercare is very crucial.
