Microblading is a thing of the past. Now it’s time for microshading

Permanent eyebrow makeup is becoming more and more popular among Polish women. It effectively reduces the time spent in the bathroom and always looks flawless. In that season the microblading method was a hit. This year it is worth getting ready for a new revolution. And it will be microshading!

Microblading and microshading – differences

There are many similarities between these two methods. They use semi-permanent tattoos inserted into shallow subcutaneous tissue. This method involves thickening the hairs and giving the eyebrows a perfect shape. The aim of the linergist is to add pigment to the hairs in places where they are missing. The effect is very natural and that is also the purpose of the procedure. Microshading, on the other hand, offers a soft and powdery finish to the brows. They look as if drawn with a light brown crayon or powder. The final effect is achieved with a special device that ends in pins. The eyebrows are thickened and gently emphasized. In beauty salons often both methods are combined with each other. First microblading is performed, and then microshading. Thanks to that the effect of beautiful and natural eyebrows is obtained

How does the microshading procedure look like?

During the first visit a linergist visually examines the proportions of the face and the eyebrows. Then she makes a simple drawing on our skin with a simple crayon. Usually the process is repeated several times until the client likes the shape of the eyebrows. Unfortunately it is difficult to choose the right form on your own, because the proportions of the face are different and what we like about celebrities does not mean that it will look good on us. After the drawing is made, the specialist applies a gel or anesthetic cream to the eyebrows. After 15-20 minutes she begins to work. The procedure is carried out using a special device equipped with disposable needles

How long does it take to recover from the procedure?

The healing time after microshading takes the same amount of time as after any procedure of this type. The skin heals for 7-10 days. After leaving the surgery, the eyebrows are all red and swollen, but this is a natural process

During the recovery period, the eyebrows require special treatment. First of all, gentle cosmetics should be used for makeup removal, and while doing it, it is recommended to avoid the area around the eyebrows. The skin should not be rubbed or scrubbed hard. After washing, the face should be dried with a paper towel, do not rub it with anything rough. During the first week, the eyebrows can be cleaned gently with a cotton swab and then applied a care cream recommended by a specialist. Most often, this is a moisturizing cosmetic with a high content of vitamin E

A few days after the procedure, scabs may appear on the skin. This is also part of convalescence. During this time, the pigment penetrates into the deeper layers of the epidermis. The skin during this time may be slightly itchy. Under no circumstances can it be scratched, or tear off the resulting scabs. Most often, after the completion of the peeling process, another corrective procedure is foreseen, which normalizes the color and shape of the eyebrows. It also serves to prolong their durability

How long does permanent microshading eyebrow makeup last?

In practice, microshading is a semi-permanent tattoo, which means that the pigment penetrates only into the subcutaneous layers of the epidermis. It is much more permanent than regular makeup, however, after some time it disappears. After the corrective procedure, microshading persists on the eyebrows from about 8 months to 2 years. It all depends on your skin type and lifestyle

Is the procedure safe for everyone?

Permanent eyebrow makeup is treated like any other aesthetic medicine procedure, therefore, there are some contraindications. It is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, those suffering from cancer or shortly after chemotherapy. People undergoing microshading must be completely healthy. It is important to remember to choose the best aesthetic medicine office and not to be guided by low prices. The procedure performed by an experienced linergist is completely safe
