Microblocking is a semi-permanent tattoo of your brows. Because it is made by hand, the ink is placed much shallower in the skin, which means it will not last forever. You have to be convinced that the specialist who will do it is well trained and has the necessary certificates. As with ordinary tattoos, first do a study and look at his previous work.
The pigment that is also used is not just a single color. Especially for you, you will mix a few tones to get the one that best suits your hair and skin.
Creating the exact shape can take time. During your first visit, 2/3 of the time will go into planning your new eyebrow shape. If you have problematic eyebrows, with little hair or the wrong direction of growth, it will take longer. In this case, the specialist will create an entirely new form of your eyebrows. You will see a result after the first visit.
Depending on your pain tolerance threshold, you can ask for a painkiller before the procedure. Expect to hurt you – yet, it’s a tattoo. But IN ANY CASE do not drink ibuprofen or any other medicine that dilutes the blood unless you want to bleed too much.
During the first 10-14 days, you should avoid putting any products, water, makeup or anything else on your eyebrows. You should also avoid activities that cause abundant sweating – for example, active sports. If your skin starts to stretch and serum, do not touch it! That is, it strengthens. If you can not survive, lightly crush the coconut oil, but not more than twice a day.
When scabies appear, let them fall by themselves. Remember that all these precautions have a reason – especially to avoid the “drop” of the pigment. This will keep your eyebrows longer. It is unavoidable to have a pigment loss, which is why most microblinding procedures are divided into two sessions. And yes, the healing process lasts just as much in the second session.
So your eyebrows will reach their full shine about 2 months after the start. Keep in mind that the pigment looks darker right after the manipulation, and later lightens.
Unlike traditional eyebrow tattoos, microbinding lasts about 2 years, depending on the type of skin. In the oily skin, the color fades faster, while the dry holds the pigment more.
To keep them as long as possible, use a SPF 30 to 50 cream to prevent color fading or other changes from the sun. If you are admirers of glycolic acid, microdermabrasion or chemical peels, avoid the area around the eyebrows.
