Everything You Need To Know About Microblading

So you’ve heard about microblading and want to know more, huh? We’ve got you covered!

Here’s everything you need to know about microblading: what it is, how it works, and what it can do for your life.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that involves drawing fine lines on your face with a blade. The blade is dipped into pigment powder, which is then applied in tiny strokes to the skin to create a temporary tattoo effect. The pigment stays in your skin for up to two years before it begins fading away. And even then, it won’t disappear completely. The result is an eyebrow tattoo that looks very natural and lasts between 8 and 18 months on average.


Why get microbladed?

If you’re looking for a way to get dramatic, bold brows without having to dye them every few weeks, microblading could be the answer for you. Microblading can also be used to fill in sparse or thin eyebrows, or to add color to light hair that doesn’t have enough pigment.

How Does It Work?

Microblading involves using a special tool called a derma pen to draw individual hairs into the outermost layer of your skin. These hairs are often referred to as “feathers.” The needles used in the process are very thin (about 0.1 millimeters wide), which means they can be used right along the surface without damaging any other tissue or causing pain. The needles are also very shallowly inserted into your skin; this helps reduce bleeding and prevent scarring from occurring during treatment sessions (which could otherwise lead to infections).



What you should know 

It is merely temporary.

Women looking for thicker brows have a great choice in microblading, which is semi-permanent and only needs touch-ups every 12 to 18 months. The brow artist can alter the form of the client’s brows if they want a little different look, their facial features have changed, their skin’s texture has changed, or their natural brow color has changed.

It almost feels painless.

You may experience some redness and very mild swelling following your microblading appointment, but there won’t be much pain. Most artists will numb the area beforehand with a topical ointment, so you shouldn’t feel anything. However, you should notify your artist and see a doctor as soon as you have any major swelling, redness, or discomfort.


Recognize your skin type.

Microblading is more effective on some skin types than others, so research your options and choose the technique that will work best for you. Since they hold pigment better and preserve sharper strokes, skin types with a dry climate give the greatest results. Oily skin types will also function, albeit they will likely heal softer and less clearly because of the increased amount of oils in the skin.

It won’t stop the growth of your own hair.

One of the biggest myths regarding microblading is that it prevents natural hair development, which is untrue. When performed properly, microblading shouldn’t affect your natural hair growth. But on occasion, it could promote hair growth. Even though the extra hair growth could require more maintenance, it might give the appearance of being fuller.


Not everyone is a good candidate for microblading.

Not everyone is an excellent candidate for microblading, it should be highlighted. It is not advised for women who are expecting or nursing to get microblading. Chemotherapy patients are recommended to finish their course of treatment because the risk of infection has significantly increased. Additionally, keloids and scars should not be microbladed. People who are receiving medical treatment or taking medication should speak with their doctors to be sure the treatment is right for them.

It is not as expensive as it seems. 

As for cost, it can vary depending on factors such as the technician’s experience and location. It’s important to have realistic expectations and a proper consultation before the procedure.

Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. If you are looking for a way to enhance your beauty and your looks, microblading in Nigeria is definitely a choice you should make. The benefits of microblading have been seen in many people who have had this done. It has helped them look more attractive, feel better about themselves and others.
