Can Microblading Help to Hide Hair Loss?
by April Maguire
In recent years, microblading has become a hot, new trend in the world of beauty solutions. Surprisingly, however, many people have never even heard of it. Sure, it may sound like shaving with tiny, little razors – which would probably be absurdly adorable – but that isn't what microblading is. In fact, microblading isn't about getting rid of hair at all. Instead, microblading is all about giving you the appearance of having more hair.
The practice of microblading actually started to compensate for thinning or uneven eyebrows. With microblading, a small, handheld tool is used to infuse the skin with pigment. If this sounds like tattooing, well, technically it is. The only difference is that microblading isn't performed with a heavy-duty, painful tattooing machine, and the resulting tattoo serves as a type of permanent makeup.
Through the use of microblading, millions of people have had their eyebrows restored to their full glory. And people who have had the treatment claim that it's more effective and convenient than having to use a pencil or makeup every day in order to make their eyebrows appear fuller. Given the high degree of success, estheticians began to wonder what other problems microblading might solve.
Microblading and Hair Loss
Unfortunately, hair loss is one of the most common conditions in the world. By the age of 60, roughly 60% of men will have a noticeable amount of hair loss, and that number only gets higher with age. But hair loss isn't a problem that only men face. According to the most recent estimates, 40% of hair loss sufferers are women, and by the age of 60 nearly half of all women will have some degree of thinning or loss. Sadly, that means that the vast majority of us are going to have to deal with hair loss at some point in our lives.
The good news, however, is that hair loss starts slow, and microblading is a great way to compensate for thinning. In general, people have found that microblading can help to cover up hair loss especially near the temples and around the hairline at the back and front of the head. To the naked eye, the small tattoos offered by microblading look like real strands of hair, allowing you to conceal your hair loss without anyone noticing. Plus, unlike over-the-counter topical creams, microblading is guaranteed to work.
If you've noticed that your hair is starting to thin, microblading could offer you a simple, effective solution. So check with the spas in your area and see if they offer microblading treatments.
