Microblading: Cost, Risks, Pain, and More – Brow Boutique

Microblading. Seems like everyone from celebrities to your next door neighbor is investing in this beauty procedure – and for good reason. 


If you don’t know, microblading is a popular cosmetic, semi-permanent procedure that involves tattooing tiny strokes on the face. It’s also known as “faux brows” because it looks similar to real eyebrows. Within a two hour appointment, clients get expertly designed brows that will last for up to 2 years. With such a long commitment, it’s important that you know everything from the cost to the risk and more.  Let’s get started. 



Everything You Need to Know About Microblading


What is Microblading?

Microblading is one of the latest and most popular semi-permanent makeup trends. This technique was first introduced by celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. He used it to enhance his clients’ faces and make them appear younger. Since then, it has become increasingly popular among celebrities, social media influencers, and even your next door neighbor. 


The Pros and Cons of Microblading

As with any beauty procedure, there are pros and cons. 

Let’s start by listing the pros: 

  • Safe and Painless – The procedure is completely safe, painless, and has little to no side effects for most people. 
  • Natural-looking Results – The goal of microblading is to create completely natural-looking brows. The tiny, hair-like strokes will achieve that goal. 
  • Save Time – No more wasting time and money on brow pencils. Speed up your morning routine by cutting out brow maintenance all together. 
  • Flawless Brows for up to 2 Years – The results will last for well over a year, sometimes up to 2 years. That’s two years of no smudges, no waxing, no brow pencils. Just picture-perfect brows 24/7. 
  • It’s Fast – The only thing between you and your brows is a 2-hour appointment. 



Now let’s dig into a few of the cons: 

    • Risk of Infection or Allergic Reactions – As with most beauty treatments, there is a risk of allergic reaction. Be sure to cover any possible allergies with your artist. As for infection, this can be prevented by following all aftercare instructions. 
  • Long healing processIt takes several weeks to see the full final result. There is also a listed of complicated aftercare instructions that should be followed to help ensure a smooth healing process and good results. 


How Much Does it Cost?

Microblading costs anywhere between $200-$500 per session, depending on where you live and what type of service you receive. You should also consider the cost of travel and downtime before deciding whether or not to go through with the treatment.


Where Can I Get Microbladed?

If you decide to undergo microblading, there are several places you can find a professional who will do the procedure for you. Many salons offer microblading services, as well as some spas and beauty clinics. We do recommend asking to see a portfolio of work and any references. You want to be sure that you’re in good hands.

During your consultation, your brow artist will ask a series of questions to ensure you are a good candidate. This step is crucial in preventing any side effects. 


Now that we’ve covered the basics of microblading, it’s time to book an appointment. Once you try microblading, we guarantee you’ll never look back. You, like millions of others, will fall madly in love with your perfect brows.
