Hi loves! I recently got my brows microbladed by the one and only Adria from Brow Game Miami and I am thrilled with the results! I’ve had a few questions about it and I put this post together to try and answer most of them.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique that creates hairlike strokes to fill in sparse or thinning brows. The practice aims to give you an effortless full brow ― no need to pencil them in daily.
Is it a major investment?
It is a major investment: microblading can cost anywhere from $400 to $1,600. Microblading might not be the best option for a girl on a tight budget. But if you’re willing to invest in your brows, I can’t recommend it more highly. I do not advise looking for someone who is cheap just to save. Make sure you look at pictures of past clientele — their healed results.
Was there any research involved?
Absolutely. Think about it, YOU’RE GETTING A TATTOO ON YOUR FACE, you NEED to do your research. Microblading cuts into the skin in the area of your eyebrows and implants pigment into those cuts. DO YOUR RESEARCH. Adria, is a certified aesthetician, brow specialist, and if you’re asking me, a brow fairy. She explained all the details about the process itself and we had a lengthy consultation prior to the procedure and discussed in detail exactly what I wanted.
Did it hurt?
Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. I did use numbing cream. It is totally normal to have some discomfort during the procedure. I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent painless.
Describe the post procedure experience?
For the first few days, my new brows looked slightly red-tinged. I had been warned that this was to be expected: the reddish hue was from my irritated skin and not the ink itself. The pigment immediately following the procedure appeared quite dark, but each day my brows have gotten progressively lighter. It will take anywhere from 7-14 days for the skin to begin to appear healed and for the pigment to fade to its regular shade.
Are you happy with the results?
I couldn’t be happier with the results. I love the shape and the thickness. I think it gives me a more polished look. I would definitely do it again. I will do a touch-up session so I can maintain my filled-in brows 🙂
