The Top Pros and Cons of Microblading Your Eyebrows

If you’re in tune with the latest beauty trends, you may have already heard of microblading. This procedure uses thin blades to place pigment under the skin of your eyebrows, giving you natural-looking, flawless brows. But how do you know if the procedure is the right choice for you? 

Like anything, there are pros and cons of microblading. Knowing what these are going in can help you make the right decision for your beauty needs and get you better prepared for the process. Read on to learn more about microblading and the benefits and risks it carries. 

Always Look Your Best

One of the biggest benefits of this procedure is that you can always look your best, 24/7, 365. Microblading involves a sort of semi-permanent tattooing of your eyebrows, and the effects can last up to three years. During that time, your eyebrows will always look as they have been microbladed on.

Woke up late for work and don’t have time to do your usual brow routine? Out for a run or hitting the gym or just out for a walk around your city and worried about your makeup sweating off? Your brows will still be perfectly on point.

Risk of Infection 

One of the risks of microblading is you do run a slight chance of getting an infection. Much like tattooing, this procedure involves making multiple small cuts in the skin, into which the pigment is deposited. And any time you’re piercing your skin, you run the risk of getting an infection in that area.

You can reduce your risk of infection by following proper aftercare procedures. Also, make sure you work with a reputable microblader who you know uses clean tools. And if you do start to notice any signs of infection (swelling, oozing, bad smell, etc.), go see a doctor immediately.

Save Time

How much time do you spend every day trying to get your eyebrows to look good? If you’re anything like us, that’s at least five minutes of your beauty routine daily. Over the three years that microblading lasts, you’ll spend nearly four whole days trying to keep your eyebrows in shape using traditional methods.

In just a one-hour session, you’re good to go for three years. No more tweezing or shaping, no more time leaning over a mirror with an eyebrow pencil. Just flawless, effortless brows for three whole years.
