Microblading in Dubai - Getting the most out of it: Pros and Cons of the procedure
There is no doubt that you have heard about the eyebrow microblading in Dubai trend that has been shaking up the beauty industry for several years now.
This non-invasive procedure transforms sparse, light, and uneven eyebrows into natural-looking ones.
Microblading can give you flawless eyebrows, just as it does for celebrities and socialites. If you ever felt like you had brow envy and wondered how they achieved it, it’s probably because they’ve had their eyebrows done.
You’re probably wondering, what are the pros and cons of microblading? Before booking your microblading appointment, read this article to learn everything you need to know.
What Is Microblading, in a Nutshell?
This brow tattoo technique involves making thin incisions on the skin and imitating natural brow hairs using a microblading tool – a blade with several tiny needles. In microblading, artists can create brow hairs that mimic the length, color, thickness, and shape of the client’s natural brow hairs.
A tattoo won’t last forever – it fades over time and can be refreshed to prolong its life.
Here are some pros and cons of microblading
Despite its permanent nature, microblading fades over time. Several factors affect fade, such as your skin type and lifestyle, but most importantly, how rigorously you follow the aftercare routine prescribed by your technician.
If you are considering making an appointment with us, we strongly recommend that you take into consideration both the advantages and disadvantages. The following are some of the most important pros and cons of microblading that will assist you in making your decision.
What's great about Microblading in Dubai
A few of the most important benefits of microblading include its time and money savings, its long-lasting results, its waterproof properties, and the fact that it hides scars effectively. Here’s how it works:
Saves you time and money
Having your eyebrows microbladed eliminates the need for eyebrow products, which can be a real-time saver when applying makeup.
Additionally, you will save money on brow products and makeup removers by speeding up your morning routine. If you’re not particularly good at shaping your brows, you won’t have to worry about it anymore.
The results are long-lasting
With microblading, you can achieve the brows you’ve always wanted for months and even years. It is possible for microblading results to last up to 18 months or even longer if you follow proper aftercare routines and touch them up regularly.
With waterproof eyebrows, you won't have to worry
The summer heat (especially in Dubai! ) isn’t the best time to wear eyebrow products if you have sparse eyebrows.
Getting your eyebrows microbladed makes sweating and getting wet a thing of the past. Finally, you won’t have to worry about smudging your eyebrows while swimming and diving.
Scars or hair loss can be covered with it
Scars on the eyebrows can be reduced in prominence by microblading. Those suffering from alopecia or cancer treatment-related brow hair loss can also benefit from it. The procedure is a great way to regain your confidence and achieve natural-looking results.
Here are the cons of Microblading
It’s important to look at both the pros and cons of microblading.
Microblading has a few cons to consider, such as healing and aftercare, infection and allergic reactions, being not the best option for oily skin, and being hard to remove. In more detail, here is what you need to know:
Healing can be a challenge
It is important to note that the healing process after your microblading treatment can last a period of six to eight weeks and can be an uncomfortable experience for some.
Your eyebrows can be itchy throughout this period and there will be some scabbing, so it is extremely important that you follow the aftercare instructions and avoid touching your eyebrows during this time in order to achieve the best results.
There is a risk of infection and allergy
Even though allergic reactions and infections are rare after microblading, they can occur.
Preventing allergic reactions can be achieved by performing a patch test beforehand. An infection can develop as a result of poor technique or inadequate aftercare. The signs of an infection are typically heavy scabbing, followed by inflammation, redness, and/or pus. Microblading is not an easy procedure and you need to make sure that you choose a professional artist and a professional place!
If your skin is oily, microblading won't be a good choice
When it comes to microblading in oily skin, it usually does not last as long as it does on skin that is normal to dry.
As a result, it is also difficult to achieve crisp, defined strokes as well as the results start fading much sooner than they normally would have in a normal situation. It is still possible for you to get your eyebrows microbladed with an experienced artists, even if you have oily skin, but nano brows or powder brows are generally much better PMU options for you.
The removal process is not easy
Make sure you understand all the risks involved in microblading your eyebrows, as you might have to live with them for many years. The microblading on your eyebrows cannot be removed by yourself, but they will fade over time and can be professionally removed.
Are you a good candidate for microblading?
Consider the pros and cons of microblading before getting PMU and don’t make an impulsive decision.
If you don’t have the skill to make your eyebrows look even or just want to save some time when doing your makeup, microblading is a great option. If you have naturally thin and sparse eyebrows or are going through brow hair loss, this treatment is useful.
As long as you have normal to dry skin, you should be able to enjoy all the benefits of microblading and achieve the brow look of your dreams.
It should be noted, however, that microblading may not be a good option if you have oily skin. As an alternative, you can opt for machine brow treatments such as powder brows and nano brows since these treatments last longer and are particularly suitable for people with sensitive or oily skin.
