Microblading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo performed with a tiny handheld tool by using the feather stroke technique. The eyebrow microblading in Delhi at Dr. Nivedita Dadu's Dermatology Clinic gives the appearance of fuller eyebrows and makes you enhance the natural features of your face. It is a soft and subtle cosmetic tattoo than some of the older methods used in the industry. Body tattoos are carved using ink while cosmetic tattoo procedures involve pigments. These pigments are designed to swiftly fade over time. Fading is acceptable as it allows the aesthetician to make changes to the color and shape over the years as per the client’s natural coloration and facial changes happen.

The initial eyebrow Microblading session performed by the best cosmetologist in Delhi takes about 1.5-2 hours. During this session, the doctor will shape and style the brows according to the patient’s requirements. The client is advised to come in for follow-up visits to have any minor necessary touch-ups. The touch-up session takes place after 4 to 6 weeks after the first one.

The treated area does not take long to heal after eyebrow microblading. The eyebrow area will appear slightly red after the procedure and the color may appear very dark initially - explains the best cosmetic doctor in Delhi. However, this is normal and a part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals over time. The next following days, the eyebrows will continue to look dark and you might notice slight scabbing. Do not peel out the scabs as they will fall eventually - advises the best cosmetologist in Delhi. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as they heal with time. It takes about 7-14 days for the eyebrows to heal, and approximately 1 month for the color to fully set in.

Yes! A microblading touch-up session is necessary after 4-6 weeks as everyone heals differently and the result may vary. Certain bladed areas may not pick up the color during the first session and will need to be refilled again - advises the best microblading doctor in Delhi. Pigment color may need to be adjusted according to the brow thickness and more strokes can be added for optimal results. People with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch-up session as the oils can lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch-up session refines your brows and ensures that it looks perfect and retains the color longer.

No, the microblading touch-up sessions are not advised to be done earlier than 4 weeks after the initial microblading session as pigment color wouldn’t have fully settled in the skin. Primarily, this is done to prevent damage as the tissue requires ample time to completely heal.

Generally, eyebrow microblading in Delhi performed at Dr. Nivedita Dadu's Dermatology Clinic is a long-lasting procedure. However, as the microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade over time. Microblading typically lasts for 1 year, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry, age (youthful/mature) says the best skin specialist in Delhi. Skincare routine may also hamper the lasting effect of the pigment: patients who tan and use products with AHA or Glycolic Acid will fade quicker as their skin will resurface faster.
