That said, fixing eyebrows with poor microblades comes at a cost. Immediate removal is impossible and requires costly laser sessions, says San Francisco-based board-certified dermatologist Caren Campbell, MD. Picosecond lasers provide the best removal results. The blade does not penetrate the skin as much as a tattoo needle, and the ink is a little different, so it fades over time.
As long as you like eyebrows from 1 to 3 years old, you should be fine. It's literally like a scratch that healed with ink. The cuts are shallower than a cat scratch. If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you probably know that I went through the ordeal that is microblading.

While you might be in love with your microsoft eyebrows this year, you might want a different look in the future.
Looking at the microblader's portfolio and ratings is the number 1 thing to make sure the results look good. I could have gone to another technician and done it for cheaper, but I researched a lot of microblading technicians and Alex was undoubtedly the best. The added fullness and ease of waking up and running of the eyebrow with microblades are part of what has made it so incredibly popular. Campbell says he doesn't actually recommend microblading cosmetically, due to the maintenance required and the fact that, as Dr.
