Eyebrow Microblading - Enhance your eyebrows INSTANTLY

Have you ever wished your eyebrows were more filled out or shaped better without the daily hassle of tweezing or filling them in? Imagine waking up everyday and not having to touch your eyebrows? Enter - Eyebrow Microblading. 

You’ve probably seen it on social media or heard influencers raving about it. Well, this is your sign to take the plunge and get the brows you’ve always wanted. Hop out of bed feeling confident and not stress about your eyebrows! Let’s get into the nitty gritty of what eyebrow microblading is and why it might or might not be the best option for you. 

What Exactly Is Microblading? 

According to May Lin, senior specialist at EverTrue Salon in New York City told Glamour: “Microblading is a technique where fine lines are scratched into the surface of the skin, and pigment embedded. The strokes accurately replicate hair (as in a brow or hairline).” Although microblading is not a permanent like regular tattoo, it still gives the semi-permanent results of tattooing by embedding pigment into your skin. It might sound a bit scary but the end results will be more than satisfactory! 

Is Microblading Suitable For Your Skin Type? 

Microblading can be done on all skin types, but results may vary: 

  • Regular Skin: Pigmentation should hold well, depending on your lifestyle, activities and the pigmentation used
  • Oily Skin: Pigmentation might fade quicker than most skin types as it's harder for the pigment to hold on oily skin. Oily skin may require more frequent touch-ups than other skin types.
  • Dry Skin: Pigmentation holds really well as dry skin absorbs the color more effectively, maintaining it longer

Conclusion: While microblading can be done on all skin types, the results can vary depending on your skin type. Various factors include lifestyle: skin care routine, diet, exercise, environment, and the pigment used by your technician. 

How Much Does Microblading Cost?

The prices vary depending on various factors: location, technician’s expertise and the salon you choose. Microblading is an investment but it's an investment that you can see everyday and feel confident that you are getting your money’s worth. On average, microblading costs between $300 for newer technicians and can go up to $800+ for seasoned technicians.

Does Microblading hurt? 

We won't lie to you, microblading will cause some discomfort but it should not hurt! Before your procedure, your technician will apply numbing cream to your brows to alleviate any pain that may be caused. During the procedure, it may feel tiny scratches and a tingling sensation as your numbing cream wears off. Discomfort varies from person to person, depending on your skin type and pain tolerance but don’t let that scare you, it'll be worth it in the end. IF you experience excessive pain, please notify your technician immediately!

Long-Term Care: 

  • Touch-Ups: Schedule touch-up appointments as recommended by your technician to maintain the color and shape of your brows. Touch-ups differentiate depending on your skin type and lifestyle.
