One of the biggest beauty trends right now is eyebrows. Many of us are looking for top secrets to realize full, dramatic brows, so it’s little wonder microblading has carved a niche as the hottest way to get enviable eyebrows.
In the middle of this success are self-proclaimed microblading experts giving their opinions everywhere, including social media platforms. But these recommendations can serve to confuse and frustrate potential patients. Today, let’s discuss the facts and myths regarding the treatment to keep you informed.
Myth: Don’t wash your eyebrows for several days after the procedure
Fact: Washing your eyebrows once you get home is typically recommended as it helps remove any minor side effects that may occur as a result. Wash them softly with lukewarm water.
Myth: Apply A & D ointment for fast healing
Fact: A & D ointments work very well for eyebrows tattooed with machines. However, the same cannot be said for microbladed eyebrows. Make sure to consult our expert about this.
Myth: Microblading must be done several months after BOTOX®
Fact: The procedure can be done days after BOTOX®. Proponents of this myth argue that enough time should be given for BOTOX® effects to pass, usually many months. However, this remains to be a myth unless otherwise advised by authoritative bodies such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Myth: People taking blood thinners or vitamin E shouldn’t go for microblading
Fact: Inform our practitioner about any excessive bleeding condition you may have so the therapist knows what to expect. It’s worth keeping in mind that spotting interferes with pigments; when more than usual blood spots occur, they can remove pigment. After the procedure, you can apply a cream on your face provided you take care to avoid messing with your eyebrows.
Myth: Pre-numbing destroys the outcome
Fact: Numbing does not interfere with skin texture or adversely affect your procedure.
