Microblading is a fairly new concept that has gained significantly in popularity in the last few years. While it has actually been around for nearly 25 years, it is only recently that many people are deciding to get it done.
This is partly due to the fact that more beauticians are qualified to perform this treatment. When more beauticians offer the treatment, naturally, this does lower the overall costs. Even so, it is not a cheap investment to make.
As a result of this, many people wonder whether it is worth it. The answer to this is subjective, because it will depend on the individual person. While one person may not think that it is worth it, someone else will.
However, on the whole, we would say that microblading is worth it. The results of the treatment are fantastic, and it can completely change how your eyebrows look.
They are particularly great if you are looking for a permanent brow solution, as you will not have to worry about filling them in every day.
Over the last 10 years, drawing in your eyebrows has become fairly standard in the beauty industry, and the majority of people spend time doing this daily.
As microblading is semi-permanent, you do not have to worry about drawing on your brows daily, which does make it worth it.
In addition to this, it can help to flame your face, and as it looks so natural, the majority of people will not even notice that you have had your brows microbladed.
They look natural, and are created with the intention of blending well into your natural brows.
If you are someone that suffers from patchy eyebrows, it can be a worthwhile investment. It can help someone to feel more comfortable and confident in their skin, which can have a huge impact on improving someone’s mental health.
However, it is worth noting that microblading can be somewhat painful. Given that a needle blade is used, it does cut into the skin, which is something many people may not be comfortable with. As it is similar to a tattoo, care will need to be taken after you have had the treatment too.
Being semi-permanent, if you are unhappy with the look of the eyebrows, there is nothing that can be done until they eventually fade, which can be a problem.
Overall, we do think that microblading is worth taking into consideration if you are not happy with your natural brows.
However, it is not something you will want to rush into. You will want to choose a reputable professional to carry out the microblading, and you will need to keep on top of the after care too.
Is microblading worth the cost?
As we have already touched upon, microblading is not cheap. It is fairly expensive, and is something that needs to be thought about, rather than something you rush into.
Given this, many people question whether microblading is worth the cost. On the whole, it is down to personal opinions and whether you have the money to spend on this treatment. While it may be worth it for those unhappy with their natural brows, others may not see the need for it.
While the results are fantastic, it is worth noting that the instant results you get are not the same as the finished results.
The color of the brows will fade as the microblading heals, and in some cases you may need to return to receive a top-up of the color. However, this is often included in the overall price of the treatment.
When you take into consideration that microblading can cost up to $1000 and will only last for up to two years, a lot of people will not be willing to pay this cost. However, having your brows microbladed does mean that you do not have to pay for eyebrow makeup.
While the microblading is still far more expensive in comparison to purchasing the best eyebrow pomade, or an eyebrow pencil, you will not need to purchase these options, which is useful.
If you are something that is fairly happy with your current eyebrows, and you don’t use much product in them, then no, microblading isn’t really worth it. In this instance, you may even regret having the microbladed.
However, if you are deeply unhappy with your brows, and you are looking for a semi-permanent fix to this solution, it can be worth it.
Why is microblading so expensive?
It is not a shock that microblading is expensive. While it may seem overpriced to some people, when you take into consideration what goes into the process, it is actually quite reasonable.
It can be likened to having a tattoo, given that it uses a blade with microneedles, and when you take into consideration how expensive tattoos are, this is understandable.
The cost of microblading will vary depending on the salon you visit, and the state you are in. As with any kinds of treatments, there will be some places that will charge more than others, this is often down to the experience they have.
On average, microblading will cost anywhere from $200 — $1000, which does not include top-ups. The more money you spend on microblading, the better the quality is likely to be overall.
Given that microblading is semi-permanent, this is the reason it can be quite expensive as it will last for around 1-2 years. When you spread this cost out per month, it is not too expensive overall.
In addition to this, you need to factor in the cost of the time it takes, the dye that is used, and the professional’s wage too. All of these will increase the cost of microblading.
If you choose someone that is well known, they are going to be more expensive too.
So, while on the surface microblading is something that is fairly expensive, when you break down the cost of every aspect, it is understandable why this is the case.
