When it comes to my hair let alone eyebrows I am so terrified in allowing anyone to touch them let alone allow anyone to tattoo them. I have seen many women in tears at the result due to taking shortcuts and paying as little to try and get the best results for what I deem a natural result.
I am travelling around the globe and on my way to New York, I stopped to meet Sital in Toronto in Canada. Sital has over 20 years of experience as a beautician and the key to her success is her attention to detail in understanding what each customer requires to get the personal perfect end result. When you want microblading done it is important to understand that the beautician needs specific training. When I was in New York after the treatment I met an expert in microblading, he commented on how well it was done. He also went on to say, how many women end up in tears after not having it done properly and they have to redo it again to get the desired end result.
This procedure is expensive (between $700 and $1200) and there is a reason for that. Quality costs! So don’t cut corners.
What Is Microblading?
Microblading, also known by a variety of names such as embroidery, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes, is a form of semi-Permanent Makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.
It is a relative straight forward two step procedure which can last 6 months up to a year. Its really depends on the individual.
After the procedure, you have to do proper after care.
- Day 1-14 Apply brow balm twice a day
- Day 1-14 Do NOT wet brows.
- Day 1-14 Do NOT pick, brows peel brows.
Once the initial procedure and follow up have been done, after one-month use sunscreen on brows daily to prevent excessive fading of pigment.
The Healing Process
Day one I thought OMG, yes I have brows. After a few days, I thought gosh they look really dark and a tad odd. After 9 days, I thought, gosh I look ten years younger and had a renewed confidence. I started applying makeup which I chose not to wear for a year. Even my husband looked at me differently and at first, was unsure. But after I while he really started liking the new eyebrows, he said from a naked eyes point of view they look natural.
In an era where cosmetic surgery procedures are so strong, and as I get older I feel the pressure in using certain procedures to look my best.
I find microblading is a brilliant concept which is a skilled treatment, in where my eyebrows looked like they did when I was twenty. That is a priceless investment!
For those that live in London, United Kingdom, Sital visits often. So if you are seeking for an eyebrow expert and looking for a fabulous result, take the leap of faith and book a treatment asap.
