It can be difficult to achieve full, dark brows, but microblading treatments at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics make it easier than ever before. We offer microblading at our Boston, MA location.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is an eyebrow tinting technique that uses a semi-permanent form of tattooing to create a look of darkness and thickness to the eyebrows. Microblading can be used to enhance the shape of the eyebrows or to add fullness to the eyebrows of patients who have thinned eyebrows due to age or over-plucking. During microblading treatment, individual strokes are made to create the illusion of natural hairs. As a result, patients can enjoy long-lasting, natural-looking eyebrows that enhance their overall appearance.
How Much Does Microblading Cost in Boston, MA?
The cost of your microblading treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Microblading Performed?
The microblading treatment is quite comfortable, and we apply a topical anesthetic to the skin prior to treatment to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the procedure. During treatment, a small blade will be used to place pigmented strokes onto the skin. The pigment used will be matched to your actual hair color to ensure natural-looking results. Each stroke is drawn individually, mimicking the look of your natural eyebrow hairs. The microblading treatment can take a few hours to perform because it is a tedious procedure that takes a lot of attention to detail to perform correctly.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Microblading?
The results from microblading will be visible immediately, but the results tend to look a little dark following the treatment. Over the following weeks, as the skin heals, the color of the eyebrows will lighten. For this reason, it can take about one month for the full results to be visible. At this point, a touch-up treatment may also be necessary to produce the desired results. However, once the desired results are achieved, patients can enjoy their new look for as long as three years. It is important to note that your skin type and skin care routine will affect the duration of your results.
Is There Downtime After Microblading?
After the microblading treatment, the eyebrows may develop scabs or have a red appearance. This is a common effect from microblading, and it is a part of the healing process. These effects typically fade within two weeks, when the eyebrows will begin to return to their normal appearance. Despite these side effects, however, patients will be able to return to work and other activities as soon as their treatment is complete.
