Microblading Ideal Candidates
The microblading procedure is a great option for women and men in the Ponte Vedra Beach, FL area who would like a more defined or fuller appearance for their brows that can last years while looking natural. Most people at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery who get microblading tend to have slender brows that need to appear thicker or have specific areas that need to be filled in. Eyebrows with bald spots or thin areas can be caused by scars, genetics, overplucking, injuries, aging, and nutritional deficiencies. Compared to cosmetic tattooing for eyebrows, microblading gives you a result that looks more natural, providing total coverage or just filling in certain sections of your eyebrows. Microblading may also be used to create more curve to the brows for more shape. The best candidates are in good overall health, not pregnant, and don't have high blood sugar levels since this can affect the healing process.
Microblading Procedure Technique
Prior to your microblading appointment, you will have an initial consultation to assess the state of your brows. Depending on the needs of your brows combined with your wants, a personalized plan of treatment will be developed for your microblading procedure. The treatment will be done in our minor procedures room with local anesthesia or numbing cream to reduce any discomfort. Based on your treatment plan, the microblading session can last from around 1 – 3 hours. To begin the treatment, your natural eyebrows will be combed and trimmed, if needed. Your eyebrows will then be shaded with an eyebrow pen, which will act as an indicator for where the microblading will be performed. Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery selects high-quality inks, plus an experienced technician to give you thin, natural-looking ink strokes that match separate hair follicles for great results.
What to Expect with Microblading
Immediately after your microblading appointment, you are able to leave our office and continue normal activities without any recovery period needed. You may notice some redness around the eyebrows; however, this typically fades in a few hours. Your brows may appear darker immediately after microblading, but they will lighten to your goal color in around two weeks. Dr. Garcia suggests that you make a second session around a month following your first microblading treatment to finalize and touch-up your eyebrow shape. Microblading results usually last around 1 – 2 years; however, treatments may be done as needed to maintain the appearance of your brows.
Microblading Frequently Asked Questions
Is microblading permanent?
The procedure is actually considered semi-permanent. It will not wash off and will look great for up to two years; however, the pigment used during the process will fade over time. We recommend touch-up sessions to help keep your brows looking beautiful.
Is microblading expensive?
The cost of this treatment varies, but Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery often offers specials on microblading. The price of your treatment will include the original session and a touch-up session around four weeks later. It is important to consider our skill level and licensing when researching cost. Choosing the cheapest price when considering microblading is potentially dangerous and could land you in the hands of someone who is inexperienced.
How long does the procedure take?
Your initial procedure could take up to two hours, but this varies, according to the look you are going for. This treatment time includes preparation, which involves penciling the shape, choosing the color, and deciding on the density of your final results.
Does it hurt?
Microblading can cause mild discomfort, but we will apply a topical anesthetic prior to beginning your procedure.
Are there any side effects?
Microblading produces very few side effects. Unlike permanent makeup, which can leave your skin swollen or bruised, microblading is quite gentle. Your eyebrows may feel slightly tender or sensitive for a few days following your procedure, but your results will be gorgeous and lasting.
