Microblading 101 Details
Hi babes! I’m finally posting about my BROWS!! I get asked about them daily and yes, they are MICROBLADED. I first got the procedure done 3 years ago and a touch-up a year ago. It’s by far the best thing I’ve ever done!! No more filling in my brows! #gamechanger Below I’m answering all of your questions and sharing before and after pictures.
What is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique used to create the illusion of fuller brows. I repeat SEMI-permanent. That means it does not last forever. Touch ups will be needed.
How long does it last?
Everyone is different depending on their skin. In my experience, I started to notice the fading around a year and a half, and only in certain spots. This is when I decided to go back and get a touch-up.
Does it hurt?
Numb, numb and numb some more!! Remember, it’s a teeny tiny needle making small incisions so ya, make sure they numb ya first!! If you are numb, it does not hurt.
Coloring & Shape
Probably the most important part is matching the correct color and creating a natural shape. Getting a referral and seeing work that your esthetician has done is very important! After I was numb, Nicole, my gal, drew in the shape and showed me the color prior to the procedure.
How much is it?
I did mine in Los Angeles and it was $500. Pretty reasonable in my opinion!
Where did I go?
I saw Nicole in Los Angeles. Info here!
