Eyebrow microblading is like getting a small tattoo. Your microblading professional will use a tiny blade or needle to work the ink into your skin. The results last for about a year, and at that point, you can choose to let your brows continue fading, or you can have them re-done. Microblading is a pretty simple procedure, but it can be a little painful, which leaves a lot of people wondering: is it worth it? In most cases, the answer is "yes." Microblading is totally worth the small amount of pain you endure during the process. Here's why.
1. You can get the exact eyebrow shape you want.
If you are unhappy with the current shape of your natural eyebrows, that is a worry that can plague you every day. And while you can tweeze or wax them to change their shape to some degree, there's only so much you can do. With eyebrow microblading, you can have virtually any shape brow created. You can have the brows extend above your natural brow line, make them longer, bring them towards the center more—the sky is the limit. This amount of control and flexibility is worth a small amount of pain to most people.
2. You don't have to draw on or fix your eyebrows every day.
Maybe you currently draw on your eyebrows. Or perhaps you just enhance them with a little eyebrow pencil or a powder. Either way, constantly having to use makeup on your brows every day can get pretty annoying. It takes time out of your day, and even the best brow products have been known to smudge now and then, so you have to fix your brows throughout the day.
Once you have your brows microbladed, you don't have to touch them with products again. This frees up time and also means fewer smudges. An hour of mild pain is worth 10 minutes of not having to do your brows every single morning for a year, right? Don't forget, this also means you'll save a small fortune on product—and good eyebrow products are not cheap.
Eyebrow microblading does cause a little pain, but most patients do not find it too terrible. Your practitioner can even apply a numbing gel to reduce the pain a bit more. When you wake up to perfect brows each morning and don't have to bother with eyebrow pencil anymore, you'll be glad you did it.
