Many people swear by microblading as one of the best things to do for your brows. And we’re not surprised! With the rise in popularity of microblading in the United States, we learn more about the benefits of getting this cosmetic procedure done.
However, along with the benefits of microblading, there are risks too. If you’ve always wanted your eyebrows to have that microbladed look without the cost or pain of the microblading procedure, then this article is for you! There are ways to get that freshly microbladed look without the cost, risk, or pain of the procedure.
Want to know more? Let’s talk about some of the microblading tools that you can use to give you the perfect brow look and how to use them.
Benefits of Microblading Tools
Why would you want to use microblading tools when the procedure makes having the perfect brow look so easy?
Great question! And the truth is, microblading is a great option. It lets you wake up with fresh eyebrows that are already done and saves you tons of time and money investing in brows that you’ll just wash off at the end of the day. Many people with shaky hands or poor eyesight also rely on semi-permanent makeup to help them get ready and stay ready. Especially if you have naturally thin eyebrows, this can save you tons of time in the morning.
However, the procedure isn’t for everyone. There are risks, pain, and cost involved that can make it unattainable or undesirable for some people. That’s where microblading tools come in handy. They give you the same look as microbladed brows without any of the risks.
And if you’re simply too freaked out by tattooing to invest in the cosmetic procedure, don’t worry! Here are some of the benefits of using a microblading tool in place of the microblading procedure.
Saves you Money
It’s no secret that the microblading procedure is expensive. In fact, that’s one of the biggest obstacles that stands in the way of people doing it. The expense can be worth it, especially if you invest a lot of money into eyebrow care products, as the procedure can save you money in the long run. However, even with these savings, it isn’t always ideal to cough up a large sum of money all at once.
The average cost of microblading ranges from $400 to $1,000 but can reach a whopping $1,500 if you see a highly recommended premium provider. There are a few instances where you may be eligible for health insurance coverage for microblading. If you have a health condition that’s caused you to lose your hair, you may qualify for partial or total coverage of permanent makeup.
While you may be willing to toss a few twenties to supply your makeup bag with microblading tools, it’s another thing entirely to toss out a whole grand to get the same look. If you can, more power to you. If you’d rather spend that money on other things—TatBrow’s got you covered.
Now, getting your eyebrows microbladed is not quite the same as getting a tattoo. Tattoos are known for being painful. They can range on the side of “wow, this is uncomfortable” to a “someone, please call my mom, I’m going to pass out” kind of pain. Whatever your experience with tattoos, microblading is a bit different.
First, your esthetician puts numbing gel on the area around your eyebrows to help relieve some of the pain. Just like a medical procedure, this numbing gel will help you hurt a whole lot less. The microblading procedure also doesn’t go as deep as a tattoo would. It’s likely that all you’ll feel during the procedure is some scratching on your face.
However, if you’re squeamish around needles or faint at the thought of pain-inflicting needles going anywhere near your eyes, you’re not alone. Using microblading tools gives you the same look—without worrying about needles near your face.
One of the most important questions to ask yourself before you get the microblading procedure done is, “Do I want this on my face forever?” Okay, well, the finished product doesn’t actually last forever. But it is a semi-permanent procedure that lasts at least a year and a half. Similar to a tattoo, the microblading procedure is a tattoo that will fade after a few years.
It’s tough to determine just how long your brows will last once microbladed. Various factors play a role in the lifespan of your brows, such as how often you wash your face, what type of skin you have, and what products you use on your face. Because it’s difficult to say when they’ll fade, it’s vital to understand those microbladed brows could be there for a while.
You won’t be able to wake up the next morning and wash it off if you aren’t happy with the finished product. So, if you aren’t absolutely sure you’re going to love it for a long time, it may be best to use a microblading tool instead to get the same look without the commitment.
Very Few Health Risks
As with any tattooing procedure, there are some health risks involved. Everyone’s body is different, so some may have a negative reaction to foreign ink particles or have an allergy to a color or type of ink used in the process.
In addition, all tattoos are considered to be open and exposed areas of skin. This means your skin will be exposed to any elements or germs in the vicinity until the area heals. If you ride public transportation or happen to walk through an area where there are particles that could infect the area, you risk infection. Of course, this is no different than the tattoo process, but it’s still something to consider.
Permanent makeup like microblading can also interfere with MRI scan results, according to the FDA. The tattoos may get in the way of the scanner and affect the quality of brain images.
While complications are rare, it’s always important to weigh the risks. If you have a preexisting health condition or have any concerns about your health, be sure to talk to your doctor or esthetician about options and to learn more about how the procedure may affect you.
