Daphne Velghe the way to go . Women who have been overly active with the tweezers over the past few decades and who have to go through life with two sad thin lines above the eyes, do everything to repair the damage done.
A steady hand and an eyebrow pencil (or gel or mascara or powder) bring solace, others find salvation in permanent eyebrow tattoos (not always with the desired result) and still others choose the recently surfaced eyebrow wigs . Whoever takes a hard eyebrow tattoo a step too far but does not want to work with a pencil or powder every day, may benefit from microblading . In this semi-permanent make-up technique, pigment is inserted into the skin after making fine (pun intended) cuts.

Microblading is a technique that shapes the eyebrows with a semi-permanent tattoo. For the treatment is an intake interview so that Karen can well assess what your wishes are. (the shaping , thickness, color, …) in short everything is first discussed before we start!
The expert uses a fine sterile blade ( blade ) to make finely cut cuts in the top coat skin that are then filled with color pigment. This results in full, defined eyebrows that look just like real.
The result of microblading will remain between 1 and 1.5 years. Only after 2 years the eyebrows may be updated again once as much pigment as possible has disappeared. Usually about three sessions are needed to achieve the desired result.
Microblading is ideal for people who:
– have few or no own eyebrow hairs
– wishing a natural result
– suffer from alopecia
– have scarring in the eyebrows
– want fuller eyebrows.
According to Lena Dunham, the pain is not so bad. “Putting a real tattoo feels a bit like scratching your skin with sun burnt,” she said. “This is a light version of that.”
After the microbaling sessions, you should not wet your eyebrows for five to seven days. Use a plastic cap under the shower or keep your face tilted so that only your hair gets wet. Preferably wash your face with your hands, first your forehead and then the rest.
Do not put the fate of your eyebrows in the hands of the former. Whoever omits thorough research beforehand, runs the risk of ending up with this nightmare of eyebrows. So just go with professionals with lots of experience like Karen Sarasin of Dermatopigmentation in Ghent.
