Think of microblading as a makeover for eyebrows that have fallen victim to over-plucking, sparse gaps or undesirable arches. The semi-permanent option is different from old-school brow tattooing, as a special pen is used to draw on individual hairs and the process is noninvasive. Because a customized shape is being drawn onto your skin, it can take a few hours. However, there is zero downtime and the results can last up to three years. To minimize pain, technicians provide clients with numbing cream prior and soothing solutions afterward.
7. Depilatory Creams:
Is there anything easier than just slapping on some hair removal cream? That sounds good right? While depilatory creams are convenient, they can also burn the skin or leave an irritated red patch. Products like Nair and Neet remove hair to a certain degree but usually require more than one application to get a smooth finish. For people with sensitive skin, if you must use it do so with caution.
When to Be Cautious:
These may not be deal-breakers but you do want to take some medical advice, stay away from specific areas or not remove hair for a certain amount of time.
You’re pregnant, take birth control, hormone replacement or antibiotics:
Your skin may be more sensitive, so it’s best to have a patch test and see how your skin reacts for 24 hours before getting an entire eyebrow waxing.
Smokers or those with Rosacea:
Waxing can irritate dilated capillaries (weak or broken blood vessels) which are commonly found on people with Rosacea and smokers. If the capillaries are very red, stay away from removing hair in that area.
