For a while now, thick and bushy brows have been a rage and we owe this eyebrow trend to model cum actress Cara Delevingne. Let’s face it, the woman’s eyebrows are absolute goals. But for those of us who are not naturally blessed with well-shaped, thick eyebrows, we try to compensate with the help of threading, brow pencils and brow products.

But tell you what? There is a brand-new technique in town that will help you ace perfect eyebrows without much hassle. The easiest and most efficient way to get perfect eyebrows is by going under the needle and getting them microbladed! Let’s start by understating what microblading really is. It is a semi-permanent tattoo that cosmetologists have devised for shapely, thick and uniform brows.
 
We’re sure you still have a billion questions about microblading, but don’t worry, read on as we tell you everything you need to know about Microblading…
 
Is it permanent?
 
It is a semi – permanent procedure, and the tattoo will eventually fade off because a small amount of ink is used with a very thin blade.
 
How expensive is it?
 
Microblading can be an expensive procedure, but the sweet results are worth the bucks. An average microblading sitting can cost somewhere around Rs. 20, 000 to Rs. 30,000.
 

 

How is it done? Does it hurt?

The technician will first numb your eyebrow area with a topical cream. The procedure isn’t very painful, but it surely will sting. The technician will then make tiny incisions on the eyebrow with a fine needle and then deposit the pigment for fuller brows.
 
What is the maintenance like?
 
You will be surprised to know that there is zero maintenance when it comes to microblading your brows. What’s more, you get to wake up to perfect brows every day.
 
 
Avoid if…
 
You should avoid getting this procedure done if you’re pregnant, nursing or have any liver ailment, or you have an iron deficiency.
 
How long does it take to get done?
 
Microblading is done in two sittings. In the first sitting, you have a sit down with the technician and decide what shape and thickness you want your brows to be. The technician will customise and design the brows to your liking. The second session is when you actually go under the needle. This could take up to 2, 3 hours, although the main pigmentation part takes nothing more than 30 minutes.
 

 

How long does it last?

Before a subsequent amount of the tattoo fades away, it’ll last for about 1 to 3 years depending on the thickness of your brows. You can always get a touch up done. One thing’s for sure, that it lasts longer than waxing or threading your eyebrows.
 
Also, you have to keep yourself clean for a week and avoid alcohol because having the spirit in your system can make your blood thin and make you bleed more than normal.
