Eyebrows are perhaps among the most important facial features, because
they express emotions and accentuate the beauty of the eyes while complementing
the bone structure of the face. If you are unhappy with the look of your
brows because of alopecia or over-plucking—which can each lead to
thin and wispy brows—you might turn to microblading as a semi-permanent
solution to restore your eyebrows in Houston. At Aesthetic Surgery Institute,
we can help you discover the benefits of microblading, which is a great
alternative to other facial tattooing and permanent makeup techniques,
which cannot deliver the fine detail and natural appearance of microblading.
What is microblading?
Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, is a technique in which
a very fine blade is used manually in order to deposit color pigments
into the epidermis. This method of tattooing is considered to be semi-permanent
compared to the traditional hair stroke technique such as Eyebrow Embroidery
and 3D Feather Hair Stroke methods which are all applications of microblading.
Why is microblading unique?
While conventional permanent makeup tattooing can be ideal for the lips
and eyeliner, it does not offer the delicate approach of microblading
for the eyebrows. Simply filling in thinning brows with full color tattooing
can create an unnatural, bulky look that does not complement your facial
features. Microblading is different, because the technique is more similar
to embroidery, creating a look of real hair follicles with every section
of pigment. This is important, because the brows should naturally have
some space between follicles. Microblading can also save you from a strenuous
morning routine of filling in the brows with makeup daily, so you may
enjoy a much more low-maintenance beauty ritual.
What to Expect from microblading?
Your microblading treatment can take place in one session, though you may
want to schedule maintenance updates every 8-12 months, since the treatment
is only semi-permanent. After the first treatment, you might have an additional
appointment in about one month to ensure proper healing and complete any
touch-ups. Local anesthesia can diminish the minor discomfort of microblading
treatment, and there is no downtime following your procedure.
How to Design Your Brows
When you book a microblading appointment, you can expect to discuss the
look you want with your aesthetician before the procedure takes place.
Depending on your facial features, you might opt for a straight and bold
brow or a lighter, feathered and arched eyebrow shape. Microblading is
particularly effective for those with patchy or light brows, thinning
brows, and eyebrows that have been poorly shaped through years of excessive
plucking. Because the procedure is semi-permanent, you can also choose
to change your look when you go in for your next touch-up.
To transform your look without the downtime of surgery, call Aesthetic
Surgery Institute at (713) 493-7397 to book a complementary microblading
consultation. Should you desire a more dramatic makeover, you might consider
a surgical eyebrow lift or full facelift to restore a youthful look that
is natural and beautiful.
