After the microblading procedure, and for at least 1 week afterward, the eyebrows might appear darker. They may also feel sharper due to scabbing and healing. It is also normal to experience some redness and mild swelling. Once the skin has healed, a person can protect their eyebrows and help prevent the color from fading by applying sunscreen on the microbladed area.
The goal of microblading is to create a natural-looking fill for thin eyebrows. The results can last anywhere from 1–2 years, sometimes even longer.

Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today's medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers. There’s a noticeable difference in regrowth rates before and after electrolysis. With every electrolysis session, hair will become noticeably smaller and finer, and it will take much longer for it to grow back. After your treatment is completed, your hair shouldn’t grow back at all.
During electrolysis, a very thin needle is inserted into the follicle, or growth center, of the hair. The process works by destroying the follicle through the use of a mild electrical current. Once the hair follicle is destroyed, the hair is removed with tweezers. Because the follicle has been destroyed, that hair cannot grow back. Usually the treatment takes multiple sessions, the number varying from patient to patient. Each session lasts between 15 minutes and one hour.
Electrolysis Procedure length
- 15 minutes to 1 hour
Risks/Side Effects of Electrolysis
Electrolysis is a safe, effective treatment, approved by the FDA and the American Medical Association as a permanent process of hair removal. Any healthy individual may have electrolysis, with the notable exception of people who have implanted pacemakers. The procedure is not recommended, however, for those wishing to remove hair from inside the nose or ears. Possible complications of electrolysis, including skin color changes, scarring or infection, are possible but rarely occur.
Electrolysis may be slightly uncomfortable, although the discomfort is short-lived and modern methods have reduced most sensations to a mild tingling. If necessary, a topical anesthetic may be applied. Each individual hair follicle is typically destroyed about 20 seconds after coming into contact with the needle. After a few weeks, the disappearance of unwanted hair becomes noticeable. Immediately after a treatment session, the skin may be red or swollen, but this effect usually disappears quickly.
Unwanted hair growth can be very troubling to some individuals. A thick growth of hair on a woman's upper lip or a man's back, for example, may cause embarrassment or self-consciousness. Affected by hormone levels, genetics, certain medications and some illnesses, such hair may prompt a desire to undergo electrolysis in order to solve the problem once and for all.
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids. Permanent makeup can be used for all skin types, and can be used to enhance the patient's natural appearance or improve the appearance of scars and other skin imperfections. For most patients, permanent makeup serves as a way to save time in their daily schedule. It may also be used on individuals whose ability to wear regular makeup is hindered by an allergy or other medical condition. This may include patients whose skin is easily irritated by most forms of traditional makeup, patients with arthritis and other painful conditions who have difficulty applying makeup.
Permanent Makeup Procudure
Permanent makeup at Conkright Aesthetics uses FDA-approved, allergy-tested dyes that are made of mineral extracts and can be tinted to match the patient's skin tone as closely as possible. Patients can choose the specific color, shade and intensity of dye for a completely customized procedure. After the application of a topical anesthesia, the dyes are injected into the skin using micro-needles. The procedure may last as little as 30 minutes or as long as 90 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients can return home shortly after the procedure. The application of permanent makeup may cause mild discomfort. Ice packs can be used after treatment to reduce any pain or swelling, and antibiotic ointment may be applied to help prevent infection.
Permanent Makeup Procedure length
- 30 to 90 minutes
Risks/Side effects of Permanent Makeup
Complications are rare but may include infection or allergic reactions to the dye.
Permanent Makeup Results
The results of the permanent makeup application are visible immediately, although more than one session may be required for larger areas or touch-ups. Most patients can achieve their desired results after two treatment sessions spaced one to two weeks apart. Aging and long-term sun exposure may lead to a reduction in color strength that may require touch-up treatments in order to maintain the original results.
