Results of Microblading
Have you tried using various gels or eye pencils to up your brow game but you don’t get results? You want to have some boastfully beautiful brows but nothing seems to work?
Well, here is your solution at Ogden Lash and Wax!
Introduced in 2019 by Lux, Microblading is one of the most effective ways to make your dream brows a reality. It is your solution to getting thicker and fuller-looking brows without the need to shape, draw or fill them.
Now, to get perfect results from your microblading appointment, you need to make the right preparations. Here are some amazing tips to help you get ready for your up coming microblading appointment:
Choose the Right Microblading Artist
Choosing your microblading artist in Ogden is one of the key factors that will determine the success of the process. You can start by checking online reviews that past microblading clients have submitted and settle for the artist with the most positive reviews. However, keep in mind reviews are often times easy to minipulate and can often times be deceiving. For example a technician working out of her home handling 1-2 microblading sessions a month convincing her friends and family to leave reviews can easily get a 5 star. Handling 1-2 microblading a day and running a professional art studio can often times lead to fewer 5 stars but often times more reviews leading to a better result on the work performed.
If this is still not enough, you can ask your friends or relatives to recommend a professional artist. This way, you will be sure that the one you choose is really good at microblading. Remember this is a sensitive process that will be conducted around your eyes and any mistake can be pricey.
Here are some tips to help you to find out if the artist is really good at what she does such as:
Avoid Alcohol 24 Hours Before the Appointment
Alcohol is a blood thinner and if you take it 24 hours before your treatment, it can lead to bleeding when the process is ongoing. If you must take alcohol on the day of your appointment, do it after the treatment. Ogden Lash and Wax does not allow any clients under the influence of alcohol or drugs for the safety of the client.
Avoid Intense Workout Before and After Your Treatment
Heavy duties or intense workout on the day of your appointment will likely expand your pores due to increase body heat, making the process less effective. You should also avoid activities that will make you sweat 10 days after your treatment to avoid permanently fading the treated area. We want you to be in shape and lead a healthy lifestyle, just ask you take a break around the time of your procedure.
Avoid Tanning Beds and direct Exposure to Sunlight
During the microblading procedure, the artist will need to access your normal skin tone. Staying in the sun for too long or using tanning beds may lead to sunburns which will get in the way of the process.
If you must go out in the sun before your appointment, apply a good sunscreen, wear protective goggles, and a good hat. This way, your skin color will remain intact and the results of the microblading treatment will be better.
Do not Take Blood Thinners
Medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen are blood thinners and would lead to bleeding if you take them before your treatment. If you need some pain medications to help you in managing the pain, take Tylenol.
You should also avoid ingesting fish oil and vitamin E 7 days before your appointment as these are blood thinners as well. If you are not sure about a particular medication, ask the microblading artist. You cannot afford to book a pricey procedure only to ruin the process by taking some blood thinners.
Avoid picking, tweezing, or waxing your eyebrows 7 days before your appointment. These processes will irritate your skin which will, in turn, make the process more painful.
Inform the Microblader if You Suffer from any Medical Condition
Some conditions may interfere with the treatment such as bleeding disorders, cancer, epilepsy, and other autoimmune disorders. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it will be necessary to inform the artist as well.
Like we noted earlier, you should inform the microblader if you are using any blood thinners one week before your appointment. Most of the time, he will advise you to finish your medications first and reschedule your appointment for a later date.
Speaking the truth about your medical condition before going for microblading will help in preventing severe microblading side effects. It will also help to determine the best time for your appointment. For more on Microblading safety see our article here.
Show Up for Your Appointment on Time
To give the microblading artist enough time to carry out the treatment, it is important to get to the spa on time. Arriving early will also give you time to relax and cool off in preparation for the treatment that will give your eyebrows a new, amazing look.
It is important to note that microblading is not permanent and will fade over time. Depending on your skin type and age, among other factors, the results may last for 1- 2 years. Your skincare routine also affects how long the microblading pigment will last.
If you are not sure about the best products to use to make the pigment last longer, talk to your microblader. With years of experience in microblading, he will recommend the best skin care products that will keep your brows looking good for years.
Four to eight weeks after your treatment, you will need a touch-up. The microblader will check to ensure that your brows are healing well. The artist will also refill the part of your eyebrows that may not have picked up the ink properly. Thereafter, you’ll be going for touchup every twelve to eighteen months to keep your brows looking good.
The initial cost of microblading may be higher but considering the duration the results will last, the process is worth it. You will have fuller, more beautiful brows without too much effort for years.
