Today I wanted to share a procedure I recently had done called Microblading. Microblading is a semi-permanent make-up procedure that creates life-like hair strokes on your brows that typically last 1-2 years.
This is done by inserting cosmetic pigments into the dermis layer of the skin. Microblading is also known as brow feathering and hair stroke tattooing.
The 3D effect adds realism to the result, creating brows that look like real hair strokes, rather than a solid block like traditional tattooing methods.
Eyebrows are arguably one of the most important facial features. As we age, are eyebrows begin to thin. Having well groomed and thick eyebrows gives a younger looking appearance.
Here is a before and after of my eyebrow. (I took the first picture at Feather and Blade where I had the procedure done and the lighting wasn’t great in the bathroom. The second picture is at my house but there is no make-up on my eyebrow in either picture.)
I am so pleased with the results! I don’t spend time filling in my eyebrows now and when I take my makeup off, I have eyebrows!
Sometimes I get these comments, especially on Instagram, “You seem to be aging in reverse. What’s your secret?” I am aging just like everyone else! It’s a part of this journey.
Microblading has made a huge difference because eyebrows frame our face. Whether you get Microblading or not, if you have thin or sparse eyebrows, I highly recommend filling them in.
Eating right, exercising, and maybe genetics play a role in the aging process. I have had botox and will share more about that in the future.
I hesitate to say too much because I don’t like getting negative comments (who does?) but I like to be honest. I also think women in my age category are interested in cosmetic procedures.
I don’t ever want to change my appearance but I don’t mind softening some of my wrinkles. I think it’s an individual decision. I go to Prive Med Spa here in Lexington and they’re very conservative with any procedures. The main thing I have done at Prive is their custom facials.
So…have any of you had Microblading?? Oh one last thing, I thought it hurt. Some people don’t think it’s too bad but cutting my skin with a razor does. not. feel. good. I still think it was worth it! Haha!
