I know many of you might be wondering, what's the big deal? Why would you want to "tattoo" your eyebrows? That seems so permanent and scary! To tell you the truth. Yes, all those questions crossed through my mind and I had contemplated this for years! However, with extensive research and finding the right artist is key in a successful Microbladed Eyebrows!
Let's start with a few personal reasons.
I have very sparse and thin eyebrows.
I wake up looking life-less without any definition on my eyebrows.
I have to fill my eyebrows every single day to look like a decent human being, trust me!
Eyebrows are key to a balanced facial structure.
I am an active person, so sweating while I workout and my brows disappearing is a no-no.
I can go on and on about why it's important and essential for my lifestyle.
How long does it last for? It can last up to 2 years if you properly take care of it and have your initial follow-up appointment within 2 months from your first microblading session. Regular touch ups are important (every 6 months). Remember, if you don't do the proper after-care, the results can vary from person to person.
Am I the right candidate for Microblading? Most people can be the right fit for this semi-permanent eyebrow method. However, if your skin is very dry or oily, very fair and sensitive to sunlight, scratches, and prone to getting easily bruised and injured, you may want to reconsider.
What is the investment for amazing eyebrows? From my own research, it can range anywhere from $300 to $1500+. Some include the follow-up touch up session while other artists do not include that in their rates. Make sure you ask those questions, since the follow-up touch up session is the most important to have the perfect and long-lasting eyebrows.
Was there any pain during the Microblading session? No, I did not feel any discomfort. Renee uses the best numbing medical grade numbing cream to ensure a painless experience. Also, it is key to allow the numbing cream to sit on the skin for at least 20 minutes before starting.
Was there any pain Post-Microblading session? No, I only felt that my skin was a little sensitive (like an exfoliation tingle)
I hope my personal experience can help in your decision if you are contemplating microblading.
