Microblading and powder brows involve depositing color pigments deep into the skin. The result is natural-looking, well-defined brows that don’t require daily upkeep.

Below, licensed aesthetician and certified laser technician Lori Alessandrini discusses how permanent makeup works and what to expect during and after your appointment in Charlotte, NC. Call now and see why so many women at Essential Aesthetics & Laser love their eyebrows.

Do you fill in your brows every day?

There are many reasons why people fill in their eyebrows every day. Some have naturally sparse brows, while others have overplucked them in the past. Whatever the reason, the process can be time-consuming and frustrating.

Additionally, it’s easy to make mistakes with cosmetic products like pencils and liners, which may result in an unnatural or unflattering look. Permanent makeup is a low-maintenance solution that looks natural and does not require constant upkeep.

Why choose permanent makeup?

In addition to saving you time, there are other benefits of choosing permanent makeup in Charlotte, NC:

  • Permanent makeup won't smudge or run
  • Treatment is ideal if you have allergies or sensitivities to certain makeup products
  • Options like microblading and powder brows define your features and give you a more polished look

How does permanent makeup work?

Permanent makeup is a form of tattooing. A small, handheld device is used to deposit color pigments into the skin. Microblading involves very fine, natural-looking hair strokes. This is ideal for those who have sparse brows and want to achieve a fuller look.

Powder brows are another popular option. This technique gives the brows a soft, powdery look for those who want a more defined shape. Instead of hair strokes, this technique uses a shading method to create dimension and fullness.

What happens during an appointment?

Licensed aesthetician Lori Alessandrini will discuss your goals and expectations before making any recommendations. Microblading and powder brows are great for most people, but please inform us of any sensitivities or allergies that could impact your care.

When you come in for your appointment, we begin by numbing your skin and marking the area to draw your desired brow shape. Rest assured, the process is virtually painless, and patients only experience a bit of pressure during treatment.

What is the recovery like after permanent makeup?

After your appointment, you can expect some redness, swelling, and tenderness. These side effects are normal and should resolve on their own. Our staff provides specific instructions on how to care for your brows in the meantime.

The color of your eyebrows may appear dark at first, but this is a normal part of the process. Your skin should lighten once it heals and recovers, leaving behind your desired eyebrow shade.

How long does permanent makeup last?

Permanent makeup lasts 1 – 3 years, depending on your skin and the type of pigment used. Factors like sun exposure can cause the color to fade more quickly, so it's important to protect yourself from UV rays and tanning beds long-term.
