What is Microblading Eyebrows?
Microblading eyebrows, also known as eyebrow microblading or eyebrow embroidery, is a popular and sought-after technique for achieving perfectly shaped and defined brows. It is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that involves creating fine, hair-like strokes on the skin and embedding pigment to replicate the appearance of natural hair. Unlike traditional eyebrow tattooing, which uses a machine to implant ink into the skin, microblading is a manual process that creates individual, realistic strokes.
Choosing the Right Microblading Artist
The success of your microblading experience largely depends on the expertise and skill of the microblading artist. Therefore, it’s crucial to research and find reputable microblading artists who have a portfolio showcasing their previous work. Look for artists who specialize in eyebrow microblading and have a style that aligns with your preferences.

Understanding the Procedure and Its Results
Microblading is not as permanent as traditional tattooing, but it does involve embedding pigment into the skin. The procedure typically takes around two hours and begins with the artist creating an outline of the chosen brow shape stroke by stroke, often using a dark brow marker. This initial outline allows you to see and approve the desired result before the microblading process begins. The artist will allow you to provide input and make any desired changes, ensuring you feel comfortable and confident about the process.
The Importance of Perfecting Sessions
To achieve the best and most enduring results, there will be a 4-6 weeks follow-up appointment for touch ups (this is usually complimentary depending on the artist). This session allows for adjustments to the shape and color, ensuring the microblading eyebrows remain fresh and flattering for an extended period, typically between 6 to 18 months depending on the skin type.
Semi-Permanent Eyebrows and Aftercare
Since microblading is a semi-permanent procedure, the results can last around two years, depending on various factors such as skin type and lifestyle. But, an annual touch-up session is highly recommended to maintain fresh, colored eyebrows.
After the procedure, it’s essential to follow proper aftercare instructions provided by the artist to ensure the best healing and longevity of the results.
Avoiding sun exposure without SPF, getting the brows wet for two weeks, and picking at the peeling skin can cause fading and affect the final appearance of your semi-permanent eyebrows. Additionally, it’s recommended to avoid using retinol and face makeup for the first couple of weeks to prevent irritation and support the healing process.
