Microblading and Eyelash Extensions Q & A
What is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent method of getting shapely, fuller eyebrows that still look natural. This tattooing technique creates tiny, micro-strokes that look like your own eyebrow hairs. Microblading can fill in sparse eyebrows, enhance thinning brows, or replace eyebrows altogether for those that no longer have their own.
During eyebrow microblading, your aesthetic expert uses a special tool to tattoo your eyebrows on one hair at a time. The first step is planning how you want your eyebrows to look, and mapping out the shape of then on your skin. Once they look like you want, your provider tattoos them on.
Microblading can take up to two hours to complete and it lasts up to three years. The benefit is that you can get up out of bed in the morning and not have to spend valuable time penciling in your eyebrows each day. The procedure is minimally painful and delivers immediate results with no downtime.
What is the procedure for eyelash extensions?
Once you decide on the eyelash length you want and if you are getting synthetic, silk, or mink lashes, your aesthetic specialists applies the lashes one at a time using a semi-permanent glue. The glue is safe for your eyes and won’t damage your natural lashes.
Typically, it takes about two hours to apply a full set of eyelash extensions. As your eyelashes grow, you can maintain them with touch-ups every 3-4 weeks, or as needed.
What are the advantages of eyelash extensions?
Like microblading, eyelash extensions can significantly reduce the time you spend each day applying mascara or false eyelashes to achieve your desired look. Eyelash extensions blend in with your natural lashes and you can swim with them, shower, and do everything you normally do — only without the worry of having your mascara run if they get wet. Eyelash extensions, whether you get a full set or a half, add an instant wow-factor to your eyes for a natural or more dramatic look, depending on the length and shape you choose.
