Eyebrow Tattoos have become more popular than ever here in the Philippines. It’s all thanks to the new method of making natural-looking, permanent eyebrows. People used to say “never tattoo your eyebrows” mainly because of the past stigma of them being painfully obvious as fake. Now, it’s desirable to have yours tattooed for a fuller-looking brow thanks to this method called eyebrow microblading.
Eyebrow microblading is a form of permanent makeup wherein pigment is manually applied under your skin using a handheld tool instead of a tattoo machine. The results it produces look very much like the real thing compared to the old method using a tattoo machine. Its efficacy is the reason for its rise to popularity in the Philippines. It’s hard to tell that you got an eyebrow tattoo.
Reasons to Get an Eyebrow Tattoo
Aside from the fuller brows that an eyebrow microblading procedure will give you, it will also make your makeup routine much more convenient. No need to apply an eyebrow pencil every time as it is permanent. It saves you time and money in the long run.
Finding a clinic and getting an appointment for a quick evaluation is your priority. Eyebrow microblading is an eyebrow tattoo procedure that you can easily find in dermatology or cosmetic clinics around the Philippines especially in Metro Manila. A popular clinic to get the procedure done is Asian Hair Restoration Center.
Once you get an evaluation and get a go for a microblading session, you can expect that the whole to take time. 2.5 to 3 hours would be the best estimate since each pigment applied under your skin is designed to simulate natural hair strands. It’s also painless so you can relax while the doc works on you.
Once it’s done, you just need to let it rest and follow what the dermatologist tells you to do to heal up your newly inked eyebrows.
