Microblading has been trending over the last few years, and with good reason too.  It’s become so popular because it creates the most natural-looking brows on the market. Sure, clients can apply makeup to their brows but microblading gives a more natural appearance to the brows and it has the potential to be far more cost-effective.

A good quality microblading experience with a highly trained microblading artist will be able to help form and shape the eyebrows to how the client desires. The artist will be able to intricately complement the natural beauty of the client’s face, their bone structure, and their skin tone as well. So what makes a good microblading experience and what’s the difference between a good quality microblade and a low quality microblade?

How long will my microblading treatment last?

A good quality microblading can last anywhere from 6 months to a year and a half. There are a lot of contributing factors that can lead to how long it will last. This can include the power of the pigments that were used in the product, how oily or dry the client’s skin is, and even the skin tone.  Microbladed eyebrows will eventually fade over time, no matter how good the artist is, the color will eventually fade out. A bad quality microbladed eyebrows (or other areas of the face) will lead to discoloration or even scarring, as this will not be the care for skilled professionals.

Are touch-up treatments needed?

It is best to occasionally get a touch-up of your eyebrows or wherever else on your face that has been microbladed. Microbladed brows will fade over time if they don’t receive any touch-up treatments. So it’s best to get touch-ups within 6 to 18 months so it looks as good as new.

If you’re wanting to let your eyebrows completely fade, all you need to do is to just be patient and wait a few months. You can let them fade out and it will look almost as if you’ve never received a microblading treatment before. Only in rare cases, there is any scarring or discoloration from microblading, and this tends to be due to the artist itself. So you can rest assured that it will eventually go away within time if you’re not satisfied with your microblading treatment.

How can you tell if a microblading treatment was bad?

As a customer, it’s always understandable that you want to find the best deals and save some money. However, when it comes to beauty treatments, it’s one of those luxuries that should be spent a little more on. Microblading treatments come at a variety of costs, some prices may feel like a steal of a deal, but you should proceed with caution. A bad microblading experience can include:

  • Scarring
  • Discoloration within time
  • The shape of the brows doesn’t look natural
  • Thick strokes (this is the key difference between a permanent tattoo and microblading)

No matter what service you’re interested in using, it’s so important to look at the artist portfolio and even reach out to ask questions. This even includes us! You should be able to look at before and pictures to determine if the microblading was good or not, and even ask to see photos from multiple angles. A good microblading treatment may be a bit pricey, but it’s going to be worth it in the end as the experience will be wonderful and your treatment will last for months to come too!
