Want to look put-together from the moment you wake up? One of the ways to achieve this is by getting eyebrow microblading. Yes, you can definitely say ‘I woke up like this’ when you get one.
But if you’re used to more traditional forms of eyebrow grooming such as waxing or eyebrow threading and this is the first time you’re hearing about eyebrow microblading, I’m sure you have lots of questions. So let me fill you in and hopefully help you discover whether this semi-permanent form of brow tattooing is for you.
What is eyebrow microblading?
It’s a semi-permanent eyebrow treatment that is similar to makeup tattooing. The difference between the two lies in the needles used during the treatments. Microblading uses a pen with a nib (which is actually a sloped blade) to ensure that the strokes look natural. Meanwhile, traditional makeup tattoo for the brows uses needles similar to the ones used in tattooing other parts of the body.
Microblading also doesn’t go as deep into the layer of the skin as tattooing.
How long do microbladed eyebrows last?
Since the treatment is not permanent, microbraded eyebrows do fade after some time. The longevity also depends on where you get the treatment from and your lifestyle — it can be anywhere between 18 weeks and a year.
How much does microblading cost?
The cost also depends on where you get the treatment from, but in the Philippines, the range is from P10,000 to P80,000.
What is the downside of microblading?
There aren’t any outright downsides to microblading. In fact, it can be quite helpful in cutting your time and the expenses related to grooming your brows especially if you do so daily. But there are still some things to watch out for.
It would be great to learn what ink will the treatment provider will use to know if you may be allergic to it. If all’s good and you do get the treatment, the next thing to consider and put a premium on is the aftercare. Since microblading is kind of like wounding your skin, there is a chance to get an infection if you don’t take care of your brows properly. But other than that, it will be smooth sailing and you can enjoy waking up with the perfect brows — one less thing to think about.
If you’re keen on getting it done, here are eyebrow microblading studios in the Philippines to consider.
