Permanent eyebrow tattoos are a great solution for anybody that’s looking to enhance their natural beauty. Thanks to services like microblading, a state-of-the-art cosmetic tattooing procedure, the days of constantly worrying about the shape and look of your brows is long gone. The Microblading procedure is quick and easy and allows for picture-perfect eyebrows. Imagine not having to deal with the daily tedious regiment ever again. Say goodbye to pencils and constantly needing to check your brows out in a mirror.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 6-18 months, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra-fine needles and each ‘hair’ is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look.
Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrows and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age, or over-tweezed brows. The Pigments we use are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color. Microblading is not ideal for oily skin types. We suggest Powder brows for this type of skin type. We offer these services to residents of St. Louis, Chesterfield, St. Charles, and the neighboring areas of Missouri.
The cost of microblading will vary depending on the level of experience of your permanent makeup artist. Performed in a sterile, safe setting by an experienced certified practitioner, costs range from $400 to over $1,000. Touch-ups tend to cost a little over half the cost of the original procedure if not cheaper. The overall savings compared to the need for continuously purchasing makeup, can be quite substantial.
Microblading can take 10 to 14 days to heal as the pigment settles into its shape. Your skin will be very sensitive during this time. Just like with a regular tattoo, you will notice scabs that will fall off naturally on your eyebrows. Just like a normal tattoo, picking or removing the scabs will cause the colors to fade. You should also avoid any type of moisture to your brows during this time. This means you may need to avoid the gym for a while, and you must take extra precautions when you are showing.
Pain can obviously be different for each person, but typically, the pain and discomfort from microblading is substantially less painful than that of a normal tattoo. After a few minutes, you will likely be able to adjust without it really phasing you. Your St Louis Microblading specialist will ensure your comfort level is ideal for the entire procedure.
Results generally last between 6-18 months and, if you want to maintain your brows, you should plan to schedule an annual touch-up session. You can talk to your St. Louis eyebrow professional about a personalized plan for you to help you maintain your ideal results for as long as you choose.
