Eyebrows play an important role in the appearance. Their shape, fullness and (most frustratingly) symmetry all help to define and frame the face. And thanks to celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, full brows are all the rage.

But for those who are not blessed with naturally full thick, brows, microblading has become the new go-to beauty treatment. But what is microblading? And is it really the best way to enhance your brows? If you’re a beauty therapist, here’s why you should offer microblading to your clients.

What Is Microblading?

Put simply, microblading is semi-permanent make up for the eyebrows. The technique involves using a finely tipped pen, made up of a bundle of needles, that deposits pigment into the skin. The process is similar to getting a tattoo, however the needles only reach the superficial layers of the skin making results semi-permanent rather than permanent.

Microblading fills in any gaps, adds colour and defines the shape of the brows with fine hair like strokes. The natural results are what makes microblading so popular – it’s almost unnoticeable that you have gone through treatment!

The treatment is perfect for those with sparse brows, those who have lost their brows all together or anyone unhappy with their brow shapes. What’s more, the treatment is popular with both men and women, making microblading a great service to offer to clients.

Microblading Vs Other Eyebrow Enhancing Treatments

When it comes to eyebrows, clients might currently fill in their eyebrows with makeup products but be unhappy with these results. With microblading, they will be able to achieve the results they want of full, defined brows but skip the hassle of filling them in daily.

Whilst eyebrow tinting can be great to add colour to fine or transparent brows, it doesn’t add length or fill in gaps. However, with microblading, you can achieve all three results. This makes microblading a better alternative for people with sparse brows.

New treatments to the market such as microfeathering and eyebrow extensions are an effective way to fill in sparse brows. However, they do not have lasting results. Brow extensions require frequent refills while microfeathering requires more maintenance. However, microblading provides longer, lasting results. The effects of microblading can last anywhere from 12 months to 3 years, making them are more manageable treatment for clients.

Are There Risks To Microblading?

Like any beauty treatment out there, microblading can come with its own set of risks. For example, if a therapist cuts too deep, then a client may be left with scarring. However, this is unlikely if a trained professional is performing the treatment.

Likewise, clients could suffer an infection following their treatment. They may also be unhappy with their results. Therefore, as a beauty therapist taking out microblading insurance will help to protect you in the event something goes wrong. From public liability to treatment risk insurance, having the right policy in place will help you protect you and your business should a client make a compensation claim against you.
