Are you interested in microblading your eyebrows? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Microblading can be daunting, especially for beginners who haven’t experienced it before. Fortunately, at Defined Cosmetic Tattooing, we provide the best microblading in Auckland, so you can count on us to deliver quality microblading with exceptional results.
However, if you’re a beginner, it’s important to first understand what microblading is and the process. So, in this blog, we’ve created the ultimate beginner’s guide to microblading.
Let’s get started!
What Is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing that is performed on the eyebrows, using a precision tool with small needles on its end. During the microblading process, these needles will scratch your skin’s surface in light strokes, injecting pigment onto the top layer of the skin. This imitates a natural, hair-like design that results in gorgeous eyebrows.
Is Microblading Painful?
Don’t worry – that area of your skin will usually be injected with a local anesthetic, so rest assured that pain is minimal. On the one hand, you might still feel the sensation of something pressing into your skin – this is mostly considered as uncomfortable rather than painful.
How Long Does Microblading Last?
The overall process can take up to 2 to 3 hours.
As it’s a semi-permanent treatment, the effects of microblading don’t last forever. Typically, you can expect the colour to fade within 12 to 18 months, however, this can depend on your eyebrow maintenance routine.
Is Microblading Suitable For Me?
Microblading might not be suitable for everyone. In particular, those with oily skin are recommended to avoid microblading as these oils can cause a blurred effect on the microbladed brows. As a result, we suggest opting for microblading if you have:
- Thin or sparse eyebrows
- Light coloured eyebrows
- A busy lifestyle with no time to do your makeup
- Desire for fuller and darker brows
