Everything You Need to Know about Microblading

Everything You Need to Know about Microblading

When you have tried all the pencils, gels, powders, and stencil at Sephora and your brows are still sparse, microblading – a more permanent solution to thin eyebrows – is the last-ditch-effort treatment that promises to change the appearance of your brows. The facial tattoo technique is not as scary as it sounds.

How does microblading work?

Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery, as it is also known) uses a specifically designed tool, which bleeds the pigment into small scratches on the epidermis to create fine lines that mimic hair strokes. The general appearance is natural and realistic.

Before using the blades, a technician will draw and fill in your brows to determine your desired appearance. The procedure results in beautiful and very natural eyebrows that can be customized according to your preference.

How much does the microblading cost?

Microblading ranges in cost from around $350 up to a maximum of $800. The average cost of microblading is around $400. There are places that offer lower prices, but you should always be careful when you go and make sure that you are being treated by a professional.

How long is the treatment?

You will need two treatments. It is essential that you attend your second touch-up treatment so that your brows are semi-permanent.

Your first appointment takes 2 hours and your second appointment lasts 1.5 hours. (The second treatment should be carried out 6-8 weeks after the initial treatment). Remember that the final result is not determined until after the second appointment.

It will be almost painless

If the needles make you squeamish and you can’t handle the pain, do not worry; numbing cream is applied to the eyebrows before making any incision and reapplying it throughout the procedure. Although pain tolerance varies from person to person, most people describe microblading as a sensation of tiny scratches on the forehead.

  • The pregnancy

  • Breastfeeding (treatment is possible, although anesthesia will not be possible)

Choose your microblader carefully

They must be an aesthetician or a cosmetologist who has experience in skin care and is certified by the health department of their state.
