How long does it take to perform a Microblading treatment? If you are curious about how much time it will consume you to sit with a microblading artist while doing your eyebrow, It doesn’t take that long to get the long-lasting results you want.
Usually, the microblading process only takes about 2 hours, but it depends on your skin type and the ability of your artist. However, you must attend two treatment sessions to get the expected outcome, and the first and second sessions are about four to eight weeks apart.
Your first microblading session takes around 2 hours
The first session would take two or more hours of your time, most of which is spent choosing the right color for your skin, examining your face, and carefully shaping and drawing your eyebrows always to look as symmetrical as possible.
Your second microblading session is 30 minutes+
However, the second session, or the touch-up session, will take little of your time. The touch-up session should only take 30 minutes to one and a half hours.
Since everybody heals differently, the second appointment is crucial. Your artist will tell you how your skin is doing, how well you are healing, and if your skin is retaining the pigment from your microblading treatment.
The second appointment is essential as it is an opportunity to fine-tune the result of your eyebrow’s appearance. Your esthetician can add more brushstrokes or touch up the edges. Also, the esthetician will make sure that your eyebrows are symmetrical and of a good proportion.
How long do the results of microblading last?
The Microblading treatment is semi-permanent and lasts one to two years, depending on how you care for your results. After the first two sessions, you must receive yearly touch-up sessions to maintain your desired appearance.
Like other treatments, the result may vary from person to person.
For instance, if you have dehydrated skin, you might not get the same results as everyone else. It also depends on how much exposure you have to the sun and the skincare level you maintain post-treatment.
After your first treatment, you will go through a recovery and aftercare process, and you will see the results immediately. However, the color will fade a little after the first week, and it will look darker and more natural over time.
About seven to ten days after your first session, the peeling occurs. This means that the top layer of your skin will gently flake and peel, or what we call scabbing, which leaves lighter softer-looking skin underneath. You might also feel a little bit of itching but do not touch it as it will lead to swelling and infection.
The time after your session is crucial. One of the essential steps is to apply a special ointment every two or three hours to ensure that the area stays hydrated. It would be best never to put random cream ointment prescribed by your artist or makeup.
You should always avoid getting your eyebrows wet at all costs, whether water or sweat. This helps the healing area heal correctly. You may feel the urge to touch it or be tempted to pick it.
Microblading is quick, and the results last a long time.
It is not that long to take a microblading treatment, but the healing process does take a little time, but it will be worth it. There are touch-ups and follow-ups, which we recommend sitting through for the best results.
Obedience to your aftercare routine and Patience are the most important things to give you the best results after your microblading treatment.
