The eyebrows are one of the parts of the body that women all over the country are constantly trying to improve, whether it’s in regard to shape, contrast, or colour. Because of this, the number of different kinds of cosmetic treatments targeting the eyebrows has exploded over the past decade. From the extreme and invasive to non-invasive and non-surgical, there are a ridiculous volume of options out there.
Wherever people consider the line to be drawn on cosmetic procedures, the fact is that they are widely available and should be thought about if you happen to want to change the appearance of your eyebrows. We’re going to explore just some of the ways in which individuals can choose to cosmetically alter their eyebrows.
Laser Hair Removal
Hair removal is by far one of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatments for eyebrows. This comes as no surprise due to the fact that so many women are sick and tired of having to tweeze their eyebrows every so often. This can also be seen to be a real money-saver in the long-term as it means much less need to visit a beautician.
The hair removal process is usually carried out using a special laser which damages the hair follicle, rendering it inert and unable to grow strands of hair. This is targeted at the middle space between the eyebrows to prevent the formation of a monobrow and to give the person less work when it comes to tweezing. By visiting a cosmetic clinic’s website you can often find out more in-depth info on what the laser hair removal treatment entails.
Waxing & Threading
Most women are familiar with the concept of waxing and threading for eyebrow shaping and maintenance. Threading is when a beautician manipulates a piece of thread in order to cut multiple eyebrow hairs at once, a faster and more accurate form of tweezing in a way. Waxing, on the other hand, rips the hairs out in a defined shape which while leaving some inflammation, seems to make hair regrow at a slower rate than normal. Both methods are very popular and many women take advantage of them.
While these methods are considered to be at the soft side of the spectrum when it comes to cosmetic treatments for the eyebrows, these can be taken to their extreme. Some become too obsessed with the shape of their eyebrows to the point where they don’t notice how unnatural they look. Have no fear though, if you find a good beautician who specialises in eyebrows, you can get a treatment to make your eyebrows look great; like this one based in Glasgow:
Microblading is a cosmetic eyebrow treatment which is beginning to grow in popularity in the UK, Europe, and in the USA. It is essentially eyebrow tattooing – which sounds terrible at first – but it’s nothing like the traditionally bad drawn-on eyebrows we’ve all gasped at on the web. This eyebrow treatment is carried out using a scalpel which deposits ink instead of a regular tattoo needle; this gives the strokes a more natural look while still appearing defined and shapely. As you can see from the image above, the results are actually quite impressive.
While we think that the people most likely to benefit from a treatment such as this would be people who do not have much eyebrow hair left, possibly due to overplucking, some may choose to have this carried out regardless. There are certainly worse-looking eyebrows out there that have undergone cosmetic treatment.
Choose Methods that are Right for You
Regardless of whether you never think about the appearance of your eyebrows or if you’re thinking about them every minute of the day, never allow yourself to be pressured into a cosmetic treatment for your eyebrows that you aren’t comfortable with. If you’re going to choose one, make sure it’s the right choice for you as an individual.
