How Does Microblading Work? Types, Prices, Recoveries, and More


May 16, 2023 | Categories: , ,

For those seeking thicker and more lush arched brows, microblading may be the answer. This non-surgical procedure will make you look younger and give you the look of fuller eyebrows without the bother of having to fill them in daily using makeup. While not inexpensive, microblading may end up giving you the breathtaking brows you’ve always dreamed of having.

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses semi-permanent makeup to create a fuller eyebrow look. Microblading treatments should only be done by qualified and licensed professionals, such as:

  • Estheticians
  • Cosmetologists
  • Tattoo artists
  • Physician’s assistants
  • Nurses
  • Doctors

Microblading — also called eyebrow feathering, eyebrow embroidery, or eyebrow microblading — originates in Asia. It’s become more prevalent in our Western culture since about 2015, thanks to social media. While microblading can be done on any skin tone with any color brows, many first try this cosmetic procedure if they have thin, light-colored, or sparse eyebrows.

How Does Microblading Work?

Generally speaking, microblading treatments are performed by a qualified professional using a hand-held tool containing tiny needles that deposit micro-pigments into the top layer of your skin, much like a tattoo. The practitioner uses the device to manually draw hair-like strokes that mimic natural hairs in your brows. As a result, you end up with realistic-looking and fuller eyebrows.

To prevent any pain during the procedure, the practitioner will apply a numbing agent or cream to your eyebrow area before microblading. Most patients only feel mild discomfort as the esthetician creates their new brows.

However, there are different microblading techniques to know about and research before you find your eyebrow technician and book your first appointment.


Here’s the scoop on various types of microblading and how each, specifically, works at CareCredit.
