5 Things You Didn't Know About Microblading

Microblading is a popular tattooing technique to give eyebrows a fuller appearance. A technician adds a semi-permanent pigment to your skin using a small hand-held tool with a few little needles on it. After the procedure, your beautiful brows will look professionally done every morning with zero effort on your part! 

Before you decide whether or not this procedure is right for you, here are five things you probably didn't know about San Francisco microblading:

1. It Can Last as Long as 18 Months

Mircoblading is semi-permanent and can last anywhere from nine to 18 months. That length of time will vary based on lifestyle, skin type, and a few other factors, so many people opt for regular touch-ups every six months or so. The good news about this treatment being semi-permanent is that you can ask for different shapes and styles each time you go in for a new session.

2. Finding the Right Shade Is Essential 

After the procedure, your eyebrows are going to be more prominent than before. That being the case, it's essential to choose the right color, especially if you're going for a more natural look. As a rule of thumb, resist the urge to get something too dark or bold for your skin tone. 

If you're unsure how to find the right shade, consult with your technician prior to your microblading appointment. That's the best way to ensure that you're happy and confident with the end result!

3. The Procedure Is Short and Practically Painless

The procedure itself only takes one to two hours. This may not seem short, but when you subtract the amount of time you spend every morning trying to style your eyebrows, you'll find that it's very efficient. 

It's also almost entirely painless, despite what some people might assume. While the procedure does involve needles, technicians typically use a numbing topical cream to ensure that you don't feel anything more than a poke. 

4. It's Actually Relaxing!

It may come as a surprise, but lots of people end up falling asleep during their microblading session. Life can get chaotic, so who wouldn't enjoy an hour or two to lie back and relax? 

Those who swear by microblading find it just as pleasant as a mani-pedi, facial, or any other spa treatment. This fact alone should put you at ease if you're worried about feeling uncomfortable during the session.

5. There's No Downtime After Treatment

There's no recovery time after microblading. No soreness, no need to take time off work, or anything else that will seriously impact your life. Your new brows will be a bit more sensitive for the first week, but your technician will let you know the little things you should avoid for those first few days. Thankfully, those minor changes are unlikely to disrupt your daily activities for the week.
