The Need-To-Know On Microblading

We all want eyebrows as full as Cara Delevingne, and our prayers may have been answered with a new beauty trend; Microblading is a face tattoo technique that is a more permanent solution to thin or sparse eyebrows than even your favorite Anastasia Beverly Hills or Benefit Cosmetics product. It’s been rising in popularity, and since it seems a little scary, I did the research to find out all the facts to share with LatinGlam readers who are struggling with their eyebrows, or who are just curious like me.

Regular tattoos are created when the machine implants pigment under your skin, but during microblading, it is implanted with a manual handheld tool. Hair-like strokes are drawn to mimic the natural brow hairs. It’s not as deep as the regular tattoo.

Tattoos have a bad reputation for pain, but microblading has been reported to not be too bad. Patients are prepped with topical numbing cream. To prepare, clients should stop drinking alcohol and taking aspirin one week before your treatment. Don’t worry, you can go out with your new eyebrows after the treatment!

Well, after the first week, unless you want to rock itchy and red eyebrows as an accessory. Some patients experience these symptoms but they will alleviate quickly. Brows should be protected from all moisture, sweat or water.

Microblading is expensive, so the price of the first treatment can cost up to $900. While this is definitely an investment, results can last up to three years, with touch-ups only once every six months. The results that have been posted online are amazing.

I have pretty thick eyebrows, so mine are very high maintenance. I definitely spend way too much time with my favorite esthetician, Susan, and with my tweezer in front of a magnifying mirror. Microblading is definitely out of the cards for me, but I wish you all the best in your eyebrow adventures. Trust me, I know it can be a challenge.
