What exactly is microblading in the Columbus Metro area? It’s a tattoo or, used with “blades that are made up of tiny, sterile needles used to etch ‘hair strokes’ into the skin. These tiny little lines will mimic hair patterns and help to fill in gaps and create density within the brow.”
The process — including consultation, numbing (more on that below), drawing and shaping the brows, and then actual microblading — takes about two to two-and-a-half hours.
Brows will appear very dark at first, this is normal as the pigment at the top of your skin that is exposed to air will oxidize. In a few days your brows will begin to lightly flake and it may appear that your tattoo has healed too light. As your skin continues to heal over the next few days you will notice the color coming back up to the surface. Brows take anywhere from four to six weeks to fully settle into your skin.
Microblading is done with a hand-held tool — it “looks like an X-ACTO knife made out of needles,” that puts pigment into the skin, but doesn’t go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It’s semi-permanent. Your Microblading brows should last between 12 to 18 months.
