I recently had my eyebrows microbladed and couldn’t be happier with how they have turned out. I’ve been wanting to get this done for over a year and I’m so happy that I finally pulled the trigger. I went to Milly at Brows by Milly in Johns Creek, GA and would highly recommend her to anyone!
Y’all asked me a few questions before I started the process that I want to answer. I would highly recommend doing your research and reading the FAQ/What I Need to Know sections of the artist’s website before scheduling an appointment. Milly’s website has a ton of information and pretty much every question I had, was answered on her site!
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi permanent technique using color pigment drawn onto the skin giving you natural looking eyebrows. The technique used is natural feathering of hair like strokes creating a beautifully designed brow. It’s like imitating your hair growth into fine lines and filling the gaps thus defining a 3D definition with a fuller and thicker finish. For some people, it is just filling in where their brows are sparse. In my case, it was more so to create a shape and add in hair because mine were thin on their own.
How Much Does It Cost?
The procedure ranges from $350 – $450 for your initial appointment. You do need a follow up appointment after this one to touch up anything that faded and that appointment is typically 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment. Your follow up appointment ranges from $150 – $200 and after you only need an appointment once a year. The cost for the annual appointment is $250 – $300.
What Does It Look Like After?
Dark! Darker than it will end up being. Mine faded in some weird spots between my initial appointment and touch up but it was totally normal, that’s what the touch up appointment is for! It wasn’t to the point where I couldn’t go out, there wasn’t any downtime it just goes through a few week long healing process.
Is Microblading Painful?
It’s uncomfortable for sure. They use a topical anesthesia that helps take the edge off but at the end of the day they are making small cuts into your skin, it’s no day at the spa! If you have ever had a tattoo, this is a very similar feeling.
Can You Microblade While Pregnant or Breastfeeding?
Ask your doctor!!! This goes not just for this, but for anything and everything! You cannot do microblading if you are pregnant. And I think depending on the location/state, there might be other regulations. My doctor approved it and Milly did require a note from my doctor with approval if you want to use the topical anesthesia, so just check with yours.
What Is The After Care?
If I had to chose a downside to this procedure It would be having to sacrifice my skincare regimen for a few days! You can’t get the brows wet and can’t put any makeup on or around the area for ten days. They do give strips to put on your brows for the shower. It obviously is a small sacrifice to make for such an amazing outcome!
After the first session, mine started to fade in a few spots, which is completely normal. I knew that the touch up would fix any of that. After the second session, she filled everything back in and I kept up with the same care for ten days. It just now is started to flake and feel itchy but It won’t last forever!
Overall, I love how they’ve healed. There will still be some maintenance like tweezing or waxing stray hairs that aren’t part of the new shape but I would be doing that regardless! Again, the main reason I wanted this procedure was to help with the shape and control the thinning.
I hope this information on microblading is helpful! I’m so happy with the outcome and really love the new look of my eyebrows. If you are in the Atlanta area, I would highly recommend inquiring with Brows by Milly to make all your brow dreams come true!
