What Is Microblading?

Microblading Before and AfterThere is a large variety of brow products and services aimed at getting lush and thick brows. But one particular treatment has taken Instagram by storm: microblading. Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique used to create the illusion of fuller brows. It can be used to create almost any look, from a light natural finish to a beautifully bold brow. Technicians can attend a microblading school in Long Island, NY, to learn the technique.


[H2] Microblading Steps

Trained makeup artists consult with clients about the best brow shape for their faces and help them choose a color that matches the natural hair color and skin tone. The brow area is cleaned and numbed for the treatment.


Instead of a tattoo machine, the technician uses a small handheld tool to draw hair strokes manually. This process can take up to an hour, depending on how full someone wants their brows to look. She or he then applies an aftercare ointment to help with the skin healing process.


A microblading school will teach students that most clients need to schedule a follow-up appointment about four to six weeks after the procedure. This is to make sure they are content with the results or if they need any little tweaks.
