My Adventure with Microblading

I have been noticing a trend with eyebrows...Everyone seems to have these perfectly shaped brows.  I mean perfect arch, not a hair out of place, full natural looking eyebrows.  I had to investigate.  I met Leila, the eyebrow expert.  She told me about a procedure that she does called Mircoblading, for perfect semi-permanent eyebrows.  The only maintenance, once it is done, is to come see her once a year for a "touch up".  Here is what I researched about the microblading process:

You can have the most natural look with semi permanent makeup, the procedure is done using a cosmetic microblading process, creating hair like strokes that look completely natural using finest cosmetic pigments, customized with a variety of colors to suit any client. 

This technique is a process that may be used to improve or create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps , scars or may be used as a full reconstruction if the brows have little/no hair. 


So off I went to my appointment with Leila.  She was quite impressive and really knew her stuff.  I have to admit I was not 100% sure what I was getting my self into.  Once the numbing cream when on, I did start to panic.  However, Leila was perfect..REALLY, she talked me through each of the steps so I knew what to expect.  Basically she draws the desired shape and exact measurement of your "new" perfect brows according to the shape your face and facial bone structure.  She then draws hair strokes or "feathers" inside the brow line and inserts micropigments to compliment your hair and skin color. Overall the pain was minimal and the results were fabulous. The first couple of days, my eyebrows were dark but that is the pigment settling into your skin and during the healing process (about 10 days) they fade to the natural color.  The aftercare is really important but Lela will talk you though it!!!!  The next step is my 6 week follow up and so far I am in LOVE!!!!  Here are some of Leila's before and after photos, feel free to contact her at leila.namin@gmail.com for your own consultation in her Rye or White Plains location and hear about her UPCOMING SPECIAL OFFERS FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!!
