Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique for enhancing eyebrows. This procedure is also known as micro-pigmentation, 3D brows, eyebrow embroidery, feather stroke brows, etc. Eyebrow microblading uses a small handheld tool with several tiny, disposable, and sterile needles. These needles help create the appearance of hair strokes in the eyebrows, making them appear fuller and thicker. The entire procedure is carried out manually, drawing one hair simultaneously, so the results are natural-looking.

Who is suitable for microblading?
The microblading treatment helps enhance or reconstruct lost eyebrows. Typically, this procedure is suitable for those who:
- Have thin eyebrows
- Have over-tweezed eyebrows
- Want to improve their brows
- Want to reshape their brows
- Have lost eyebrow hair due to an accident, surgery, or alopecia
- Want to keep your brows on point all the time without makeup
- Are not satisfied with their brow’s outline
- Want to make the eyebrows thicker and fuller
- Want to increase the length of the eyebrows
Microblading is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure because it involves tiny needles. However, dermatologists generally use an anesthetic cream to minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Moreover, the procedure will take about two to three hours to complete as each hair is manually drawn.
The step-by-step microblading procedure is as follows:
- Before starting the procedure, the dermatologist will draw the desired eyebrow shape with a pencil.
- After finalizing the eyebrow shape, they will apply an anesthetic cream to the treatment area.
- Once the site is numb, they will use the tiny needles of the handheld microneedling tool to draw thin, hair-like strokes.
- After creating the strokes, they will insert the pigment into the epidermis. The candidate and dermatologist decide the pigment color in advance.
Microblading is an excellent eyebrow enhancing procedure. However, candidates must follow some aftercare guidelines to achieve optimum results after this procedure. Usually, the dermatologist provides each candidate with a set of aftercare instructions, depending on their requirements. Some general instructions are as follows:
- Candidates should use the prescribed aftercare cream on the brows for at least a week or as recommended.
- Keep your brows dry and avoid anything that can get them wet.
- Do not go swimming, running, or doing any strenuous physical activities.
- Avoid steam rooms, saunas, and gyms until the treated area heals completely.
- Do not expose your brows to chemicals and UV rays to ensure quick healing.
The results will become visible after one microblading session, but candidates may need more to achieve their desired results. The results are natural-looking as each hair stroke is drawn according to the natural shape of the brows. Although the results are excellent, they are not permanent. In most cases, microblading results last for about 18-30 months. However, this duration may change depending on a number of factors, like the type of skin, type of pigment, treatment technique, etc. Moreover, after a year, the effects will start fading. So, in order to maintain the effects of this procedure, candidates will need follow-up sessions once or twice a year.
Microblading Treatment Results: Before and After
Is microblading permanent?
Microblading is not a permanent treatment; instead, it is a semi-permanent makeup technique for enhancing eyebrows. The results are long-lasting and natural-looking, but candidates need regular follow-up sessions to maintain the effects of microblading.
How painful is microblading?
Microblading is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. It uses tiny, sterile needles to penetrate the skin and deliver the pigment. When several tiny needles prick at the skin, they can cause mild pain. However, most dermatologists use an anesthetic cream to minimize any pain during the procedure. They will also prescribe painkillers to relieve pain after the treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
Each candidate’s treatment duration may vary according to their desired results and other related issues. Typically, a microblading session lasts for about 2-3 hours. In this time, the dermatologist will shape, draw, and design the candidate’s eyebrows using a suitable pigment color.
How long does microblading last?
Although microblading results are not permanent, they are relatively long-lasting. Typically, semi-permanent makeup results last for about 1-3 years or 18-30 months, depending on several factors. After that, the pigment will start fading, and candidates will need a follow-up session.
How long does it take to heal?
The healing time after the microblading treatment varies for each candidate, but most candidates recover smoothly. While minor swelling and other related issues will subside within a few hours, the eyebrows will completely heal after 3 or 4 weeks.
How much does microblading cost?
Microblading is an affordable cosmetic procedure, but the price varies from candidate to candidate. So, usually, an expert determines the exact treatment price during the initial consultation. However, the starting price of microblading at Euromed Clinic Center is 2000 AED.
How many microblading sessions are needed?
Most experts suggest undergoing 2 microblading sessions to get optimum results. These two sessions are typically spaced a month apart. So, candidates will go for a second session in or after the 4th week of the treatment to get their eyebrows assessed.
