Are you unhappy with how your eyebrows look? Are you tired of having to fuss with them all the time? At Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, we know that many women are tired of all the grooming they have to do to perfect their eyebrows. We also know that there are many women who have lost their eyebrows due to illness. Jack Hensel Jr., MD, offers microblading as a way to have a semi-permanent solution for your eyebrows. With a technique similar to tattooing, you can have the exact shape and look you want.
Instead of plucking and using a pencil to fill in areas, microblading places pigment directly into the eyebrow area with a tool that uses microneedles and ink. The process is similar to getting a tattoo, but it does not go as deeply into the skin. The ink is added in stroke-like patterns to replicate the appearance of eyebrow hair.
It can fill in empty spaces or completely replace a missing eyebrow, and with your input, we pick the precise color and shape you want. The process is virtually painless, but you may have some slight irritation afterward. The procedure can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on what is being done. The ink can last up to two years, but you can keep it looking great with annual touch-ups.
Your skin must be healthy to get the best results. People with certain medical or skin conditions may not be suitable for this procedure. If you scar too easily, have hepatitis, are pregnant, or have had an organ transplant, this treatment may not be right for you. Before your procedure, we will numb the area to keep you comfortable.
It will take a month before the color balances itself out. Full healing can take 1-4 weeks. We’ll give you complete instructions on how to take care of your skin, and we’ll recommend products to help with healing. Here are some things to keep in mind after your procedure is done:
