Have you wondered what all the hype is about Microbladed Brows?
Well let me expand my knowledge on my experience. I personally have been wanting to get microblading done for several years, but was skeptical. I took the plunge and went for it, July of this year.
I was worried about so many things. How much does it cost, how long will it take to heal, will they be too dark or not dark enough, will the shape be right for my face, how long does this service last and do I have to go back and get touch-ups?
I finally got enough nerve to go through with it. Social media is so nice because you get to see peoples previous work. I found her on Instagram near Jax beach, she was amazing! A girlfriend referred her to me and she was posting her healing process everyday. So I was convinced they would turn out amazing!
The microblading Queens' Instagram handle is @philbrows.christykim. Go check her photos out on her feed, she will have you wanting to get your brows done as well.
She charges $500 for the microblading service, that includes your touch up service. Everyone is recommended to come back for a touch-up because everyone's skin is different. The ink sometimes does not take in certain places, so it's always a good idea to go back for the touch-up. Your touch up is usually suggested 4 weeks after your first initial service. The touch up dose not take long at all.
A few other things to remember when receiving this service. You cannot get them wet for at least 7 days and A&D ointment is your best friend. She will numb you first and that will take about 20 mins. Then she matches up your eyebrow color with your natural hair color. The service takes about 2 hours from start to finish.
Is it painful? Not really, but you can feel her making the strokes. On a level from 1-10, 10 being the worst pain level, I would say it's about a 4. So if you're on the fence about getting this service done, go check her site out and see some of her awesome work.
I love my brows! It's nice to be able to get up and not have to pencil my brows on. They look natural and looks like I've had some Botox done. (Winning)
I put a picture of my brows, before and after, above. She is a magician when it comes to brows.
I hope this was helpful in the decision making process. Go for it, you wont regret it!
