Your eyebrows define your face. While you can enhance their shape with gels and pencils, microblading provides a semi-permanent solution delivering natural-looking results. At The Beauty Medics in Riverside, California, Dr. Syed Bokhari and his team offer this treatment to fill in sparse eyebrows. Call the office or use the online booking agent to set up a consultation and find out how microblading can transform your look.
Microblading involves cosmetically tattooing your eyebrows to fill in sparse, thin spaces. The team at The Beauty Medics uses a handheld super-fine, pen-like tool equipped with needles to apply mineral-based pigment to your brows. The pigment’s shape simulates actual hairs.
After a consultation to determine the optimal shape and thickness of your brows, the team draws in each hair one by one, which may take a few hours to complete. You’ll get natural-looking results that can also stimulate hair growth.
Microblading is considered semi-permanent. It is a tattoo, but the pigment isn’t as deep as a regular tattoo. The color fades over time, so you’ll need yearly touch-ups to maintain optimal results. In some people, the effect can last up to three years.
Microblading fills in sparse areas. It works great for people who need:
If you want to add a slight arch to your existing brows, microblading can also be a good option. If you spend a lot of time filling in your eyebrows with makeup, you’ll enjoy waking up every morning with perfect brows.
The team at The Beauty Medics applies a topical numbing cream prior to the procedure to minimize any discomfort. You may feel little scratches or pinches similar to the feeling of paper cuts, but most people tolerate the procedure well.
Moderate your alcohol intake and avoid taking aspirin or using retinol a week prior to treatment. These can increase your pain threshold and make your skin more vulnerable to bleeding.
You should see the results of your microblading procedure immediately, but the initial darker color fades within a month to reveal a more natural look. The staff at The Beauty Medics provides you with some aftercare protocols.
Right after the procedure, keep your brows away from water (this includes sweating and washing your face with water). If you experience any redness, slight scabbing, or itching the week after your procedure, petroleum jelly can help. You may also have a little swelling, but this should subside in fewer than two weeks.
