5 Major Things You Should Know Before Your Microblading Treatment

If doing your eyebrows is half of your morning routine and you try to make them look natural and even day after day, maybe you should consider having a microblading treatment. Not only will you be set for a year or two, but you will save yourself the trouble of wasting so much time every day.

What is microblading?

Microblading is a treatment similar to brow tattooing. However, the thinner layer of skin is treated, making it semi –permanent. It is performed by creating micro incisions on the surface of the skin and filling them with pigments. Every hair is created separately and the result is natural-looking trendy eyebrows. The procedure is not very long – it takes 2-3 hours to be done. Also, it is not completely painless but the treated area is numbed before the procedure, so it is quite similar to tweezing.

How do I choose an artist?

Choosing an artist is not something you should take for granted. Not all the microblading artists are experts in this job, so be careful and thorough when looking for one. Take time to do the research. You can take advice from your friends or the internet users. Find an artist who can take pride in a number of satisfied customers. Read comments online and look at the artist’s portfolio and previously done work. Also, it is vital to choose a certified technician who had completed a reputable PhiBrows training. Someone taught and trained by a licensed and a respectable master artist is likely to be proficient in this field.

What does the Healing Process Look like?

If you have a big event coming, make sure you do microblading treatment at least a month before. At first, your eyebrows will be swollen and a little bit too dark. You will probably not be satisfied with the immediate results. However, some patience is required since the real outcome is visible after 4 to 6 weeks. Besides, there are some steps to follow and things to avoid during the healing process. Your microblading artist will explain what the dos and don’ts during the aftercare are.  After the recovery period is finished, you will get eyebrows of the desired shape and color.

Are there any risks?

Microblading is a sensitive treatment and it has some risks. The biggest risk is the one of infection. That is why it is important to check and avoid those artists who use unsterile equipment. The place and the instruments must be immaculate.

Besides that, there is a risk of incorrectly done eyebrows. They might not be even or they might look unnatural, or you just don’t like them. Since you are stuck with those brows for almost two years, this is a real horror scenario. This is why you need to carefully pick the shape and the color of your brows. Ask your artist for help. Again, the importance of choosing the reputable and experienced artist must be emphasized. Do not put such an important task into the hands of an amateur.

However, if you choose a professional and follow the recovery instructions, the risk is minimal and you don’t need to worry too much.

How much is it?

The average price of a microblading treatment is $500, but it can go up to $1500, depending on the location and competition as well as the popularity of the academy and the artists. However, if you finally decide to go for it, this is definitely not a moment to be cheap. Eyebrows are the most important feature of your face and if you try to save money, it might cost you even more. You might end up paying someone else to fix a badly done job, and it will still not look good.  Therefore, the price is not something that should affect the choice of a treatment. Famous artists are usually a little bit pricey, but it is usually worth it and you can be sure that they are going to do a great job.


To sum, microblading is something you should definitely decide for if you want those super trendy bushy brows. If you carefully pick the shape and shade, as well as the artist who will perform the treatment and get answers to all the questions that bother you, the results will be outstanding. Enjoy your new look!
