What Are Microblading Eyebrows?
Microblading has recently become quite the trend in the cosmetology and aesthetician sectors. Essentially, microblading is the process of using a semi-permanent tattooing technique to create an illusion of thicker and fuller-looking eyebrows.
Using the microblading tool, clients with sparse eyebrow hairs or unevenly shaped brows can achieve their ideal brow shape. However, there is no doubt that microblading cost a pretty penny.
Hence it is advisable to opt for it only when other modalities like hair regrowth serums or makeup techniques have been unsuccessful.
How Does Microblading Work?
Microblading is done professionally at a certified cosmetologist or aestheticians’ office. You should follow the following steps to make the most of your microblading appointment.
Research well and find out everything you need to know about this procedure before choosing to undergo it. Some questions you should undoubtedly consider are – what is microblading eyebrows, how much does the process hurt, what kind of care and maintenance is required post-procedure, what is the price point, and the permanence of the treatment, etc.
Consult with your technician to figure out the most flattering eyebrow length, shape, and thickness for your particular facial shape and features. Ensure that you choose an eyebrow color that perfectly matches the color of your natural hair and your skin’s undertone (warm, cool, or neutral).
Before beginning, the technician will clean your brow area and apply a numbing agent to minimize your discomfort during the procedure.
The technician will use a small handheld device to manually draw delicate hair-like strokes on the sparse areas of your brow with a needle. Unlike a tattoo machine, this device is much smaller and gentler to use.
After the procedure is completed and all the hairs have been drawn to create the most natural-looking outcome, the technician will apply a healing ointment to soothe the area.
This is a semi-permanent treatment that requires periodic refreshers to keep your brows looking their best.
How Much Does Microblading Cost?
Microblading is a substantially expensive treatment, although people can argue that the investment is worthwhile since you will not have to spend on threading or waxing appointments or expensive eyebrow makeup products for a very long time.
Microblading can cost anywhere between $700 to $800. Due to the hefty price point, ensure that you are sure this procedure is best for you before proceeding.
Overall, microblading is a beautiful technique to give you perfectly shaped and perfectly tinted natural-looking eyebrows for a very long time. Since we know that eyebrows frame the face, they can make or break any look you decide to wear.
Further, there is always a chance that one or two extra hairs may get pulled out during waxing or threading; if any hairs from the middle of the brows are removed, it is a terrible pain to regrow causes your face to look rather weird. Microblading eliminates this risk and is, therefore, a well-regarded beauty technique today.
