Microblading can be an easy solution for full, perfectly groomed, natural-looking eyebrows.

Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo procedure where a special handheld microblading eyebrow pen is used to draw on strokes that mimic the appearance of real brow hairs. While it's a similar process to getting a tattoo, the ink that is used is far less concentrated than that of a regular tattoo and is specifically formulated for the microblading process.

Microblading can last anywhere from one to three years, depending on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, and the products that you use. However, touch-ups are commonly needed about once a year, especially for those with oily skin, as the ink tends to fade and blur faster.

After the area is sanitized and numbed, the doctor will consult with client on the eyebrow shape that will be drawn on. Dr Ruchi at Sparsh Aesthetics likes to follow the direction of the natural brow hairs and takes into consideration the client's face symmetry and age. She also consults with the client on the pigment of the ink, which she explains is chosen based off of the natural color of the brow hairs and the skin's undertone.

Then, she moves onto drawing the strokes in using the microblading pen, which can take anywhere from 30-40 minutes, depending on the eyebrow area. After the eyebrows are finished, she applies an aftercare ointment to help healing and a follow-up appointment is scheduled for four to six weeks later. You need to keep the eyebrows dry after microblading for 3days.

Right after the treatment is done, the brows will be darker and slightly red, but the redness and the pigment will slightly fade in color as the brows heal. "Besides them being darker while healing there isn’t any major side effects.Infection is possible only if you don’t take care of them and don’t follow proper aftercare. All the instruments are disposable in our office, so chances of infection happening is next to none.
