There are a lot of questions buzzing around questioning whether microblading is worth it or not. The short answer is: it depends. Each and every client has their own situation and all eyebrows are created differently. Something that may be worth it for you may not vary for someone else. One of the biggest questions about microblading is the cost. This is a treatment that’s known to be on the higher end and comes with a hefty price tag. If you’re still on the fence about getting a microblade treatment or wanting to find some good alternative, then look no further!
How much does it cost to have your eyebrows microbladed?
A good quality microblading treatment from a highly skilled professional can vary in price. Our microblading service (including the procedure and consultation) starts from £395. There are a lot of factors on why the price of a microblading treatment could vary, it could depend on
- Your location
- Where you get the treatment done
- The number of years of experience the artist has
- What is included in the package
A good microblading treatment may not come cheap, but it can be worth it for anyone who dislikes their brows.
Can microblading be cost-effective?
In the long run, microblading can save both time and money. Some clients spend hundreds of pounds a month on makeup and other products to fix their natural brows and give them a different look. With microblading, one treatment can last anyways from 6 to 18 months without fading. Even microblading treatments with fading pigments are far cheaper as well. Top-up treatments for our past clients are a flat rate of £195. But this price can vary for different businesses.
Are there any alternatives to microblading?
If you’re someone who doesn’t have the time, patience, or even the courage or tries out microblading then don’t worry. There are fortunately other methods to getting perfectly filled eyebrows! Maybe you’d already tried microblading and you figured it wasn’t for you, whatever the reason is, there are other great alternatives to microblading that you can try for yourself.
Similar to microblading, those who have sensitive skin could benefit from it. The applications for microshading are far more gentle. This works through repetitive dots of pigments that have a close resemblance to eyebrow powder. However, one of the biggest differences between microshading and microblading is the fadedness. Within the first three days after a microshading procedure, the pigments of the brows will begin to fade while it takes 6 to 18 months for this to occur for high-quality microblading treatments.
Brown lamination is a newer procedure that focuses on creating shiny and smooth brows. Unlike microblading, colorings and needles are not involved in the procedure.
Microfeathering is a procedure that is better suited for clients who already have naturally full eyebrows as microbladed is geared mostly towards those with thinning brows. While microfeathering is technically a variation of microblading, the application technique differs. If a client has full brows with some spots that need to be filled, then microfeathering is the best option.
