Have you heard about the new eyebrow embroidery technique, now available in NYC for women with thin eyebrows? Brow thinness is an issue that many older women and young ladies struggle with, including those with naturally thin brows and those who are losing volume due to aging, medication or over plucking.
Whatever your reason, relief is now available in the form of microblading, also known as the 3D eyebrow tattoo technique. Never heard of it? Here’s everything you need to know about getting an eyebrow tattoo in NY, and why celebrities such as Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Winona Ryder, the Kardashians and even Michelle Obama can’t seem to get enough.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent technique that involves inserting pigment under the skin of the eyebrow to mimic the appearance of real hair. It is popular in Asian countries such as Singapore and Malaysia but microblading in NYC has been catching on as more women look for a longer lasting alternative to pencils, powders, and other forms of brow makeup. It is also a better option for women who have thought about getting a regular eyebrow tattoo but want a more natural result that is not completely permanent.
Getting 3D eyebrow embroidery done in NYC, or anywhere else, means you first have to find a certified microblading expert. The professional does not use a tattoo machine, but rather, a special hand tool, which allows him or her to make little strokes that look like natural hairs on the eyebrows. It can take up to two hours per treatment.
Is it Painful?
Practitioners in the art of microblading agree that there is some amount of discomfort associated, since you’re really getting a tattoo, however semi-permanent it might be. The level of discomfort varies and can be reduced by using topical numbing agents. Also, to prevent bleeding excessively, it is recommended that you do not take blood thinning medication, alcohol or aspirin, at least one week before doing it.
How Long Does Microblading Last?
Done properly, an eyebrow embroidery tattoo will last up to two years before it needs to be repeated.
So, are you interested in microblading now that you know what it is? If so, you will find that there are quite a number of Semi-Permanent eyebrow tattoo experts in NY who can provide you with great-looking 3D eyebrows.
