WHAT IS BROW THREADING?
Threading is a hair removal technique. Threading plucks your eyebrow hairs from their roots. In this technique, a cotton or polyester thread is used. The thread is doubled and then twisted. After that, it is rolled over to pluck the unwanted hair out. The eyebrows are shaped and cleaned during this procedure
It can be a bit painful. But it is completely bearable. It’s more like a minor discomfort. The results depend on the skills of the artist. If the artist is highly skilled, you’ll have better results. However, you’ll have to get your eyebrows done again after two to four weeks. It varies from person to person as it depends on how fast have the unwanted hair grown back.
Threading is best for you if you have thick bushy eyebrows.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microbladingis asemi-permanent tattooing technique. A small tool fitted with tiny needles or blades is used in this procedure. The artist uses it to make small hair-like strokes on the upper surface of your skin. A semi-permanent pigment is deposited into the skin via small blades.
Microblading is really painful. But the artist will numb your eyebrows so you won’t feel the pain. The pigment fades over time. However, the results last for 1 to 2 years. There will be an initial 6 to 8 week touch-up. But after that, you’ll have to get your eyebrows done after every year. Microblading adds hair-like strokes so your eyebrows will look fuller and thicker.
Microblading is best for you if you have sparse or thin eyebrows.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Microbladingis a semi-permanent tattooing technique. Hence it’s more costly than threading. It costs from $350 to $800. On the other hand, threading is far less expensive than microblading. It costs from $5 to $20.
Microblading delivers long-lasting results. You will need another treatment after 1 or 2 years. It depends on how long your skin retains the pigment. Whereas, threading needs to be done every 2 to 4 weeks. As the unwanted hair grow back. But everyone has different hair growth rate so it varies.
It won’t be wrong if I say that threading has no side-effects. It just pulls out the unwanted hair from their roots. You just need a skilled artist.
The redness will be gone in a few hours. On the other hand, microblading has several side-effects. If the artist isn’t skilled enough, the cuts can be made too deep. You might be allergic to the pigment. Moreover, it takes 1 to 2 weeks for your eyebrows to fully heal after microblading.
Threading obviously is far less painful than microblading. That’s the reason why the artist numbs the area of your eyebrows before microblading. Threading is a completely non-invasive procedure. Whereas, microblading is a minimally invasive procedure. Hence, it’s more painful.
