If you’ve invested heavily in eyebrow fillers, pencils and gels to try and battle your botched brows, but you’re still struggling to solve this common male grooming conundrum, you may be interested to find out the benefits of eyebrow microblading. This growingly popular treatment amongst modern day men, costing around £600 could just give your cosmetic game lift off. Patchy, uneven or even non-existent brows could be something to write off your bathroom to-do list in as little as one two-hour treatment and in today’s men’s cosmetic blog, we’ll be running you through the ins and outs of this mildly invasive procedure.

It’s important to note that men’s eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent solution for gentlemen struggling with underperforming brows. In the first instance, it’s always worth investing in good quality brow makeup for men, but if you’re at the end of your tether and if these product fail to give the desired results, this treatment is well worth considering. The Beauty Boy himself, Jake Jamie Ward is obsessed with the results given by microblading and whilst it uses face tattooing techniques to give the illusion of full and thick brows, it isn’t as scary as you might think.

The procedure involves pigments being implanted under the skin of the brow with a specialist tool. Whilst it is essentially a form of tattooing hairs on this area to effectively mirror the alignment and position of real follicles, microblading isn’t actually as painful as you might think and instead simply feels like small, mildly painful scratches.

If you’ve decided to undergo treatment at an approved and reputable centre, as with most things, preparation is key! Preparation begins with avoiding blood thinners like alcohol one week before your treatment, as it’s not uncommon for the skin to bleed during men’s eyebrow microblading.

Like we’ve said before, the pain isn’t unbearable, but it’s minimised significantly with the use of a nourishing cream applied directly to the area during treatment and topped up throughout. Both during and after, you may experience slight redness and irritation of the eyebrow skin, however this does normally fade over the following week, along with the deep coloration of the tattoo.

Keeping your new brows plastered with creams is essential and when done correctly, the results can last for up to two years. As a first timer in the world of men’s cosmetic surgery, it’s important to do your research and if necessary, consult a specialist in this field before you book your first slot.
