Microstroking, also known as feathered brows, microblading, embroidery, and 3D brows, depends on implanting pigment in the eyebrows skin to make strokes. The pigment is implanted in the dermal layer of the skin using a tool to re-shape the eyebrows hair. Some people worry about the tool used, but it is disposable, safe, and sterile.
If you have thin eyebrows or you do not like how they look, Microstroking can be the best option for you. It is also one of the best options for people who have bald spots in their eyebrows, suffer from alopecia, or want to have a total reconstruction for their eyebrows. It is even used for scars and nipple camouflage.
People usually do Microstroking to avoid getting their eyebrows filled with makeup everyday. Just imagine waking up with perfect eyebrows that will not disappear throughout your day; it is amazing.
What Should You Know about Microstroking?
Microstroking prices are not the same. They differ according to where you are going to get your eyebrows done and the dermatologist level of experience. After the procedure, you will have a list of instructions that you must follow. You must keep your eyebrows clean all the time during the first few days.
Use distilled water and a cotton pad and gently clean. Get a high-quality aftercare cream and apply it every 4 to 6 hours. You should keep this routine for at least 5 to 7 days.
If you have any big appointments such as job interviews or weddings, you should re-schedule or cancel them. Your eyebrows will remain red and scabby for a while. After 10 to 14 days, you will be able to get back to your life normally.
In addition, do not try to do any exercises or go to the gym. Excessive sweating prevents the pigments from settling down in your eyebrows and may lead to infections.
Make sure to discuss the costs upfront. After a month, you will need a touch-up and its cost must be considered while discussing the fee of the entire procedure.
Try avoiding sunlight and using exfoliants to keep the effects of the procedure as long as possible.
