Eyebrow Permanent Makeup (Microblading) Cost
Microblading, also known as eyebrow permanent makeup or “eyebrow embroidery”, involves a targeted application of pigment to the skin surface in the brow area. At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various facets of the procedure with the patient, including the estimated costs.
Patients should consider the costs carefully because this is an elective cosmetic procedure, and is not likely to be covered under the patient’s health plan.

Price Tag Comparison with Other Procedures
When compared to facial plastic surgery procedures such as brow lift, or even with non-surgical procedures based on laser, ultrasound or RF techniques, microblading permanent eyebrow makeup will usually proven to be more cost-competitive.
The procedure does not involve general anesthesia or IV sedation, and can be performed in the surgeon’s office on an outpatient basis. This avoids major costs such as the fee of the surgeon and the anesthesiologist and surgical venue costs. No post-operative expenses are involved either, and patient does not have to spend on medical tests, prescription drugs or surgical accessories.
Microblading permanent eyebrow makeup involves little to no downtime. Working people are required to take time off from their workplace, which can have cost-saving benefits for some patients.
The cost of microblading permanent eyebrow makeup can vary between two patients at the same practice. Each patient’s brow appearance and overall eye and face condition may be unique, requiring a customized approach to perform the procedure. While a practice may offer a fixed dollar amount for such procedures, some patients may require more intricate treatment, which could push up the cost.
Some patients may want to combine microblading permanent eyebrow makeup with another facial procedure such as Botox, dermal filler injections, or microneedling. Although the overall cost will go up, but the treatment provider may be able to offer a package price or a special rebate for multiple procedures. This would make the procedure cost-effective.
For certain periods in a year, the manufacturer or the private practitioner may offer a promotional price to encourage more people to choose microblading permanent eyebrow makeup. Patients can make use of such opportunities to receive the treatment at a lower dollar figure.
Other Sticker Price Factors
Where the practice is located can make a difference to the cost of most cosmetic procedures. The quality standards followed by a practice, whether it is supervised by a board certified plastic surgeon, the kind of personalized care, attention and the range of services that a practice may offer will have an impact on the cost.
However, it is always a good idea to choose a well-established and reliable practice for sensitive procedures such as microblading.
