While it may not seem like an issue that would come up every day, individuals suffering from thin or perhaps even non-existent eyebrows often suffer from feelings of insecurity regarding their appearance. Both men and women that struggle from this condition often feel that a lack of eyebrows creates an aesthetic that doesn’t match the way they feel inside, or perhaps stands out too noticeably upon first introductions. Whatever the reasons may be, strides in the field of cosmetic technology mean that those looking to enhance the appearance of their eyebrows now have more options than ever.
In the past, patients looking at solutions for eyebrow enhancement were highly dependent on tattooing to create a permanent look that delivered up confidence in their appearance. Today, microblading has emerged as a highly popular and successful alternative technique to eyebrow enhancement. This semi-permanent solution provides more flexibility than tattooing and comes with the added benefit of being both a very safe and extremely time-efficient process.
Patients with thin or non-existent eyebrows are often concerned with the amount of time it takes to enhance the look on their own. The process of coloring in eyebrows on a daily basis can add up on the clock as well as in the pocketbook with the products that are required. Microblading in St Louis is a fast outpatient procedure that also helps patients save time in the long run. Once microblading is complete, patients no longer have to worry about spending time in the morning applying makeup or covering in their eyebrows. Similarly, those athletic individuals that suffer from this condition often worry about products used to enhance eyebrows smudging or smearing during workouts and exercise.
Microblading can be a great source of stress relief as those who undergo the treatment no longer have to worry about changes in their appearance through the day or course of athletic activities. For individuals that suffer from alopecia or have lost their eyebrows as a negative result of chemotherapy, microblading can lead to positive and pleasing results.
Microblading is a process with roots in Asia that has steadily made its way into the mainstream cosmetic treatment field over the past 25 years. The entire process takes anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours in total and can be performed by a licensed physician in an office. A multi-pronged hand-held blade is used to inject pigment into the brow line. This is done effectively when the first three layers of skin are penetrated by the blades which creates a natural-looking pattern of lines near the surface. When treatment is complete, these lines work to resemble eyebrow hairs that fit in naturally with the hair that’s already there. Microblading is commonly referred to as either feathering or micro-stroking in cosmetic circles.
There is minimal recovery time associated with microblading and at most patients can request a topical anesthetic to ensure a more comfortable treatment process. A slight redness may be noticed at the treatment site; however, this commonly disappears over the course of 10 days following microblading. St Louis Microblading is considered a semi-permanent treatment option because the results are expected to last anywhere from 2 to 3-years following initial treatment. Unlike a permanent tattoo, microblading will require follow up at some point to maintain vibrant and successful results.
