Microblading has become quite popular in the beauty and cosmetic industry in recent years. I have always been curious as to what exactly microblading entails, so I decided to do some research in hopes of learning more about this current trend.
Microblading involves the process of tattooing semi-permanent ink into the skin using tiny needles. The procedure is typically done to enhance eyebrows, and the tiny needles inject pigment under the skin to enhance the hair follicles of natural brow hairs.
When done correctly, microblading looks incredibly natural. It is a means to rid eyebrow-enhancing products from your beauty routine, and although it is expensive, it arguably saves money in the long run.
Microblading treatments can cost anywhere from $300 to $700, depending on where you go. The ink typically remains in the skin/brow hairs for one year, however, it can last longer. It depends on each person.
I have heard mixed reviews regarding the sensation affiliated with microblading. Some say it is painful, others say it is not. Again, I think the sensation is subjective depending on the person. Personally, when I had my wrist tattooed, I did not find it to be painful whatsoever, but others find tattooing to be incredibly painful. It depends on a person’s pain tolerance at the end of the day.
My roommate actually had her eyebrows microbladed, and I think they look absolutely incredible. I have been debating whether or not to get my eyebrows microbladed for some time now, and quite honestly, the only thing holding me back from getting it done is the price. The idea of having them done and not liking them also terrifies me, but as long as you source a trustworthy and legitimate service, this shouldn’t be an issue.
If I ever do decide to have my eyebrows microbladed, I will be sure to do a post on it. In the meantime, I will continue to consider my options.
