Questions and Answers about Alopecia and Microblading

Missing a small or large portion of an eyebrow due to alopecia can present a real challenge for anyone. Even people who might not be particularly appearance conscious might be embarrassed by the unusual appearance a bald patch can create. Microblading has become the gold standard solution for people of all ages and genders for eyebrows that look full, natural, and attractive.

Below are answers to many of the questions people have on microblading and alopecia.

What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is an autoimmune condition impacting millions of people. The illness causes hair follicles to fall out, though the number of lost hairs can vary greatly. Sufferers are usually able to make adjustments but some find it extremely difficult to get used to noticeable bald patches on their eyebrows.

How Does Microblading Work?

Microblading is a more finely detailed variation on permanent makeup. It uses a row of extremely tiny needles to place thousands of dots of pigment under the skin. The work is painstakingly detailed and requires the skill of an experienced and talented makeup artist.

What Kind of Results Do Most People Get?

When the outcome is complete, clients get flattering custom-made eyebrows that consistently look almost exactly like natural eyebrows. Only experts are typically able to spot microbladed eyebrows. Even after laypeople have been told about the process, they still tend to have difficulty seeing where the natural eyebrow ends and the microbladed areas begin.

Does Microblading Hurt?

Because the needles are so small and a topical anesthetic is applied first, most patients feel mainly a pressing sensation but very little actual discomfort.

Are Eyebrows Shaved Off Before Microblading Begins?

No! Shaving the eyebrows is counterproductive. The idea of microblading for people with alopecia is to complete whatever is there to fill in bald patches. We want to preserve however much of a client’s eyebrow hair remains.

How Long Do Microbladed Eyebrows Last?

They typically last about 18-30 months but they can remain indefinitely with regular touch-up applications.

Are There Special Concerns Regarding Microblading for People with Alopecia?

More caution may be required for alopecia sufferers due to a sometimes increased risk of infection. It’s therefore especially important for clients to make certain they are working with a reputable and experienced makeup artist who has had special training to ensure your complete safety. You should also communicate with your dermatologist before proceeding.

How Do I Find the Right Microblading Provider?

Both your appearance and safety are involved so it’s important to be careful to choose an experienced and reputable provider. Make sure the provider is experienced and expert in the safe application of permanent makeup.

Ready for the Face-to-Face World? Think Permanent Makeup!

The world is steadily returning to something a lot more like normal. This means that many of us who may have been working at home and generally flying under the radar have to readjust to going out and meeting people again at work and social functions. A lot of us feel like we need all the help we can get.

At Beverly Hills Permanent Makeup, folks from Greater Los Angeles and around the world are coming to our salon for eyeliner, lip-enhancement, and microblading eyebrows at our salon. Let’s look at some of our offerings to help our clients get face-to-face with their lives.

What Can Beverly Hills Permanent Makeup Do for Eyes?

We’ve all heard that the eyes are the windows to the soul but, like actual windows, the “treatment” around them can make all the difference. We offer two primary techniques for making the most of one of two of our most prominent facial features.

  • Microblading
    Microblading offers attractive and amazingly natural-looking eyebrows while saving countless hours of daily stress over a year. The process consists of placing many tiny drops of pigment under the skin of the eyebrow area, which has been treated with a topical anesthetic. The painstaking techniques employ extremely tiny needles so that, when used with an anesthetic, there is very little discomfort, if any. By the time the whole process has been completed, people may notice your beautiful eyebrows but hardly anyone who doesn't know about the work will guess your eyebrows aren't natural.
  • Eyeliner
    The appeal of permanent eyeliner is easy to see. Instead of dealing without the hassle of very carefully applying eyeliner every day, not to mention the stress of sorting through the countless offerings from the makeup companies, clients at Beverly Hills Permanent Makeup can have their eyeliner applied by our own Ellie, a world-class makeup artist with an outstanding reputation. Every dot of micro-pigmentation is applied with maximum safety and comfort and, most importantly, clients consistently love their outcomes.

Is There a Permanent Version of Lipstick?

You Bet. A stunning alternative to standard, imprecise, and sometimes messy lipstick, semi-permanent lip enhancement from Ellie and Beverly Hills Permanent Makeup is enthusiastically praised by our clients. It saves time and removes the risk of messy lipstick stains and smearing. A lip-enhancement also allows Ellie to give a client’s mouth greater shape and sensuality. If you want to look your best every day with a minimum of bother, Ellie’s lip-enhancement is a godsend.

Who Gets Permanent Makeup?

Who gets microblading, eyeliner, and semi-permanent lip-enhancement? All kinds of people – some do it just to have one less time-consuming task every day; others may have doubts about their makeup skills and would rather leave it to an acclaimed artist, while others may have difficulty doing detailed makeup for any number of reasons. Regardless, our clientele agrees that the work they get from Ellie is the very best.

The Best Microblading in Los Angeles Saves You Time!

Living in LA can feel like constant hustling 24/7/365. Balancing the circus of work, a social life, and family amidst constant traffic can feel like a real juggling act. Think of all the time you could save at home by making an appointment for the best microblading in Los Angeles!

Time is Life!

If there’s anything we’ve learned in recent years, it’s that creating time to care for ourselves is essential. Whether it’s investing in a fitness class or treating yourself to a great massage, self-care reflects self-worth. But sometimes the best kind of self-care is finding a long-term solution so you can enjoy your most precious resource: time.

For those who take pride in looking their best every day, permanent makeup solutions like microblading offer a professionally applied eyebrow look with the added benefit of a much shorter daily makeup routine!  A win-win for busy people who want to look their absolute best.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a quick and cost-effective procedure that offers people from all walks of life perfectly sculpted eyebrows. Using extremely small needles and top-quality pigments, the procedure offers results that, once complete, look gorgeous and are all but impossible for laypeople to tell apart from natural eyebrows.

Major Time Savings

Microblading results typically last up to two years. If you do your own eyebrows every day, microblading could save you up to five full days’ worth of time over that same span (the average eyebrow routine takes about 15 minutes).

Permanent Eyeliner: Everything You Need to Know

Gone are the days of spending way too much of your precious time and energy on makeup: permanent eyeliner makes your makeup routine vastly more convenient and provides the stunning look that only a professional makeup artist can offer!

How Does Permanent Eyeliner Work?

Permanent eyeliner uses micro-pigmentation to mimic the look of ordinary eyeliner by injecting pigments just beneath the first layer of your skin. While this might sound like a tattoo, the process is much more delicate and is often referred to as micro-pigmentation. At first, the color may appear a little too dark, but the eyeliner will gradually fade into a more natural look. After that, periodic touchups will be needed to maintain the look, if desired.

How Long Are Permanent Eyeliner Sessions?

Sessions typically last around 90 minutes and usually require a quick touch-up after six weeks after the initial session.

Who Gets Permanent Eyeliner?

Anyone who wants to can benefit from permanent eyeliner! Whether you’re looking to save time from your beauty routine, struggle with a steady hand or are maybe just not that skilled at applying makeup, or if live an active lifestyle and want to look your best even while working up a sweat, permanent makeup is an excellent option that never smudges or runs and always looks amazing.
