Our eyebrows are considered one of the most important facial feature we have. Needless to say, beautiful eyebrows are a must. But, being the busy, hard-working women we are today, saving time on make-up routines surely does have our preference.
So, when we come across an affordable, safe and long-term solution for permanently beautiful eyebrows, most of us ladies are keen to learn more about it: Micro-blading (also known as Eyebrow Feathering, Stroke Brows, 3D Brows, or Micro-Pigmentation) is the process of manually implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin with small, sterile needles or a special micro-blading pen, to produce the appearance of hair strokes or natural makeup. Different from eyebrow tattooing, which usually looks a bit harsh and edgy on the face, micro-bladed eyebrows give a soft, natural look, which imitates real hair strokes and is in harmony with the rest of the facial features.
Since we consider this technique a true beauty art, it is important to make sure you find a beautician or salon, which has perfected this technique to the T, and knows how to shape your eyebrows beautifully and perfectly.
The whole process of micro-blading takes about two hours. A specialized beautician will first assess the suitable brow shape for you and then draws on your desired look with a removable pencil. Once this is done, there is time to adjust and make sure it looks the way you want it to. Once approved, a special micro-blading pen is used to draw strokes one by one until the desired look is achieved. It might feel a little sensitive or uncomfortable during the process, but it’s definitely not painful. Generally, clients are given the option to use a numbing cream, but even this is not always necessary. The procedure is completely safe and considerably painless.
Your beautifully looking semi-permanent eyebrows will last up till 9 months, depending on your age, skin condition, activity level and amount of sun exposure. The great thing is that after the eyebrows have fully healed (usually around 7 days), you can pretty much do whatever you want: Taking a swim in the sea, desert trips, traveling around the world and rub them as much as you want. No special care is required, except for a little touch up when the pigment starts to fade. Experts also recommend a touch up after about 40 days of the initial treatment, just to make sure that any “empty” spaces are filled up with pigment, as the healing process is different for everyone and only after about a month the full result is visible.
A recommended salon, which specializes in micro-blading in Dubai, is Ellyssar Beauty Salon. Located at a convenient location in Tecom, the salon has a wonderfully skilled artist who truly understands the art of eyebrows. The cost for this treatment is around 1600 AED, which is not cheap, but having perfectly shaped eyebrows and an extra 15 minutes in the morning, is probably totally worth it!
