Do you remember the 1990s? Pencil-thin brows were all the rage! How many of us sat in our college dorm rooms tweezing our way to perfect arches, while our mothers warned us that our once-full brows would never grow back. You know what? They were absolutely right. Your desire to follow the trend may have left you with eyebrows that have bare patches or look thin and unattractive.
If your brows are thin or splotchy (whether from plucking, waxing or just naturally) and are more artwork than reality, eyebrow microblading in Phoenix from Andres Plastic Surgery can give you the look of full, lush, brows once more.
What is Microblading?
Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery in Scottsdale, is a cosmetic procedure which can restore the look of full eyebrows for long-lasting results. The procedure is performed through the use of a hand-held tool, which allows your technician to etch small hair-like patterns into the skin. These etchings mimic the look of real eyebrow hair for an incredibly natural-looking result.
What are the Benefits of Microblading?
Eyebrow microblading in Phoenix can fill in patches of missing hair or can rebuild brows which have been damaged or depleted due to age, illness, or over-plucking or waxing. Eyebrow microblading can allow you to:
- Regain the look of eyebrows without cosmetics
- Have maintenance-free eyebrows
- Trim time from your morning routine
- Receive a safe, effective treatment for missing or thinning brows
Am I a candidate for Microblading?
Microblading is an ideal treatment for men or women with thinning eyebrows who would like to have a fuller, natural look. Candidates should meet the following requirements:
- Are generally in good health
- Do not have diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, epilepsy, circulatory or blood disorders
- Do not take blood-thinning medications
- Have no skin conditions, including rashes, in the brow area
- Are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- Do not have oily skin and large pores
- Are not taking Accutane currently and haven’t taken Accutane for the past year
What Can I Expect During Eyebrow Microblading?
Your first Phoenix eyebrow microblading session will last approximately two and a half to three hours. During the treatment session, your eyebrow technician will reshape and style your eyebrows to naturally frame your features, asking for your input every step of the way. Once you are content with the predetermined shape, a hand-held device with an ultrafine needle will be used to create hair-like etchings to create natural-looking brows. Pigment will be applied, providing a finished, sophisticated look.
Are the Results of Eyebrow Microblading Long-Lasting?
The effects of your Scottsdale eyebrow microblading session will last approximately one to three years depending on skin type and age. You will need an initial touch-up session approximately four to six weeks following your procedure. The new look of your eyebrows should be maintained with touch-up sessions as needed following the initial procedure.
Is Microblading Painful?
Most patients report little to no pain during their Phoenix microblading procedure. Many compare the sensation experienced during microblading to minor cat scratches. Prior to the start of your session, your technician will apply a topical numbing cream designed to keep you comfortable during treatment.
