If you struggle with growing thick eyebrows, there is a long-term solution that involves no makeup whatsoever. This solution is microblading, which can produce darker, thicker eyebrows in a single treatment. At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we offer this treatment in Tellico Village, TN.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing that is used to create darker, thicker eyebrows. This can be a great solution for patients who are unable to grow hair on their eyebrows, or for those who would simply like to enhance the appearance of the eyebrows without having to use temporary cosmetic products. During the microblading treatment, individual strokes of ink are drawn onto the brows. With our attention to detail and precise treatment process, microblading can look identical to natural eyebrow hairs. Many patients enjoy an enhanced facial appearance and more dramatic eyes thanks to the microblading treatment.
How Much Does Microblading Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every microblading procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables like your current condition and your unique treatment goals. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit us in-office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer financing to help make our treatments more affordable.
What is the Microblading Treatment Like?
During the microblading treatment, we will use a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. After choosing an ink pigment that matches your natural eyebrow color, individual hairs will be etched into the brow to fill out your eyebrows. This procedure is generally well-tolerated, but it can take a few hours due to the intricacy of mimicking your natural hair.
What is Recovery Like Following Microblading?
Recovery following your microblading treatment is fairly minimal, although you will have to take certain measures to help the eyebrows heal following treatment. It is important to avoid submerging the eyebrows in water and using make-up on the eyebrows for about two weeks. The microblading treatment causes open wounds in the skin, which can become irritated and infected. Despite these effects, you should be able to return to work and other activities immediately following your treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Microblading?
After your microblading treatment, the eyebrows may appear significantly darker than expected. This is part of the healing process, and the color will lighten up as the brows heal and the color sets in. Your full results are usually visible about one month after treatment. In some cases, a single touch-up session may be needed after the initial treatment. The microblading treatment can produce results that last up to three years or longer, although the exact duration of your results will depend on your skin type and your skin care routine.
