WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a semi-permanent artistic technique for enhancing the appearance of the eyebrows, in which pigment is scratched into the skin in fine, short strokes resembling hair, using a hand tool with a blade formed of tiny needles called a microblade.
DOES IT HURT?
It depends on how each individual deals with pain. An anesthetic (numbing) cream can be applied before the procedure to minimize any discomfort. If you have ever taken the time to pluck your eyebrows, it’s very similar in feeling and has minimum pain during the treatment. There are clients that sleep through the procedure.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

People with a darker skin tone and oily skin will require additional touch-ups to ensure the dye does not fade away. Age tends to make it fade more quickly as well. There is also a touch-up everyone should get anywhere 4-6 weeks after the initial services. Some people might need more than one touch-up and on rare occasion, you might require up to 3 touch-ups after the first visit.
HOW MUCH DOES MICROBLADING COST?
The average price for microblading is $350 to $1000 depending on the specific style, procedure, specialist doing the procedure and the length of time that it takes to complete the treatment. Most people will pay an average of $450 to have their microblading done. Microblading cost can also vary by the geographic location and places like Los Angeles, San Diego, New York and Miami can be a bit more expensive.
