Eyebrow Restoration or Microblading? What is the Better Option?

At first glance, eyebrows may not seem like a big deal, but on an instinctual level, they matter a lot more than people often realize.

In fact, these little tufts of hair are actually one of the most visibly prominent features on the face, and one of the first things that people instinctively use to subconsciously assess whether or not they find a person attractive. In fact, the eyebrows play a key role in not only highlighting and accentuating the color and shape of the eyes, but they help highlight and define the shape of the face. 

In addition, in terms of body language, the eyebrows are one of the primary facial features that people use to convey emotion. In fact, research has shown that their eyebrows are one of the primary conductors of highly evolved human interactions. With all this in mind, it is no wonder that many people place a high degree of importance on having their eyebrows look defined and well-shaped.

Understanding the Difference Between Microblading and an Eyebrow Hair Transplant in Palo Alto

As unfair as it may seem, some people just aren’t born with picture-perfect eyebrows. Like any dual feature on the human body, eyebrows are often not symmetrical to each other, and while this is perfectly normal, it can also be particularly noticeable on such a prominent feature. Therefore, it’s important to give the entire face an asymmetrical look.

In addition, much like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, many people have eyebrows that they feel are either too thick or too thin. While this is very much a matter of aesthetics and personal taste, the main thing to keep in mind here is that if people aren’t happy with the natural look of their eyebrows, because they are indeed such a prominent feature, they will probably feel less satisfied with the overall look of their appearance as well.

A lot of people will try to compensate with techniques like penciling, plucking, or trimming, but the thing is that these types of highly temporary solutions are not only incredibly time-consuming but can also be costly for anybody who opts to have these types of aesthetic procedures handled by a professional beauty spa or salon on a regular basis, as many often do. Meanwhile, those who opt to do it themselves to save on cash often end up with eyebrows that look more wonky than chic, and can sometimes even cause irreversible damage.

The good news is that there are two much more permanent options out there for anybody who wants to improve the look of their eyebrows without having to worry about having to deal with ingrown hairs, constant retouches, mounting costs, and the other downsides that come with more temporary fixes. Those who are looking for a permanent way to professionally augment the look, shape, and color of their eyebrows can typically opt for either microblading or eyebrow restoration. These are less risky than hair transplant surgery in Palo Alto.

So what is the difference between the two? Read on to find out.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is essentially a tattooing technique developed specifically to emulate the natural texture of the eyebrows. A microblading specialist will help fill in gaps in the natural hairline of the eyebrow using tiny tattooed lines of ink. However, unlike in standard tattoo parlor where a tattoo gun is the weapon of choice, microblading requires the use of a specialized hand-held tool that is developed specifically to be able to emulate the fine lines of the natural eyebrow.

When a person chooses to have their eyebrows microbladed, they will first need to choose the shape and size of the eyebrows that they desire. The artist will then emulate the desired look by drawing in the natural eyebrow texture using their hand-held tool. As with any type of tattoo, there is a little bit of pain involved in the process. However, most technicians will use a topical anesthetic to numb the area and render the procedure relatively painless. That said, patients can still expect to have to take certain precautions during the healing period to ensure optimal results.

Normally, the whole operation should take about two hours from start to finish but will vary according to the specific type of work that needs to be done. After that, patients will need to avoid getting their eyebrows wet in the weeks immediately following the procedure, which can often be easier said than done. In addition, they can expect a certain amount of redness, irritation, swelling, and pain while the skin heals. The average healing period may take up to two weeks.

One thing to keep in mind is that although the procedure is similar to that of receiving a tattoo, microblading is actually a much less permanent technique. This means that patients will still need to receive touch-ups every one to three years to keep their eyebrows looking full and sculpted.

What Is an Eyebrow Restoration?

Much like a robotic hair transplant in Palo Alto, an eyebrow restoration procedure actually takes the natural hairs from the scalp and implants them into the eyebrows. As such, the result is not only much more natural and authentic-looking than a standard microblading procedure but also completely permanent.

As with any type of technique for naturally restoring hair loss in Palo Alto, an eyebrow restoration will require a recovery period of about two weeks, which is not dissimilar to the recovery time required in a microblading setting. However, many consider the results far superior, and will often save money in the long run when they factor in the fact that they will not have to have the procedure constantly updated over the years.

That said, people may have to wait for up to a year to enjoy the full results of their procedure, but most find the investment more than worth it in the end when they are rewarded with a full and natural set of real eyebrows that they always wanted.
