Is Microblading Worth It? A Comparison To Fillers & Extensions

Eyebrows say a lot about your looks and personality. Sadly, many people have inherited really thin and unattractive eyebrows. Many have lost their thick and dense eyebrows due to a disease. Fortunately, Microblading, a fairly new beauty technology, has made this eyebrow problems a thing of the past. This semi-permanent solution requires a treatment every few years.

Eyebrow Microblading is a recently introduced technique used in the health and beauty sectors. Patients who went through chemotherapy and lost a significant amount of eyebrow hair use Microblading. Woman looking to beautify themselves also use Microblading to reconstruct or fill-in over plucked brows. The procedure is very different from tattooing as a special Microblading pen is used to draw on individual strokes one by one. Hair-like strokes are implanted in the epidermis to give the look of fuller brows. This process is done carefully and with great accuracy in only two hours. The healing process takes not more than 20-30 days. The results will last for up to 3 years before fading out and very few touch ups are needed. Since it is not permanent, you can have your brows up to date according to the latest fashion trends. It’s recommended to re Microblade every few years. It is a relatively painless process that uses a topical numbing cream for any discomfort or pain that could potentially be felt. Just book an appointment with a local Microblading treatment center and start benefiting off this new technology.

Unlike eyebrow extensions, Microblading requires no daily maintenance whatsoever. Extensions on the other hand require outlining or completely filling in your brows everyday.

Microblading will also save money. A simple calculation will reveal that eyebrow fillings, brushes and salon visits will quickly  reach the cost of a Microblading treatment which lasts years. Not to mention all the time you will save on your daily schedule. Another great advantage of Microblading is that it does not smudge or smear off, so feel free to enjoy everyday physical activities like exercise and swimming. Finally, by Microblading, the pigment is implanted in first 3 layers of skin rather than 7 layers as in tattooing. Also, the pigment used is organic and does not lose its color over time.

In conclusion, Microblading provides you with a pain free, maintenance free, long term and affordable solution for beautiful eyebrows.
