Eyebrows frame a woman’s face and accentuate her naturally beautiful features.  In fact, perfectly groomed eyebrows can make you look younger, giving you an almost instant facelift.

Like all aspects of fashion and beauty, eyebrow trends change too. For a while now, celebrities and runway models have been seen sporting more natural looking eyebrows. Gone are the days when pencil thin eyebrows were hip.

Women have been pencilling in their brows for years. But what if you could waive that annoying option and go for a semi-permanent fix? We fill you in on what eyebrow embroidery microblading is to help you decide whether it’s right for you.

What is eyebrow embroidery microblading?

With the use of a sterilized needle and a unique feathering technique, a qualified technician will fill in the empty spots in your brows with coloured pigment. It’s very similar to the process of getting a tattoo, but it’s just on the surface and lasts only two years. You and your technician can choose an exact colour match so the brows look natural, and the feathering technique gives them the appearance of real eyebrows.

Who is it for?

Typically eyebrow embroidery microblading is favoured by women with little to no brow hair or thinning hair in general. It’s a cosmetic procedure that can add depth, thickness and fullness to your brows, framing your face and giving your gaze an enhanced look.

Is it safe?

As with any cosmetic procedure, eyebrow embroidery microblading is safe only when performed by a qualified technician. Be sure to have a consultation with your technician beforehand to select colors and discuss the potential side effects, which typically include temporary swelling and redness. Don’t be shy to ask the technician to show you before and after photos of their work as well as a copy of their certificate. Also ask to look over the sterilization procedure — all tools need to be thoroughly disinfected before use, especially since they gently pierce the skin.
