Micropigmentation is the perfect way to get the perfect brows all the time. Or is it? While there are many results that look seemingly perfect, nothing is without its flaws. Yes, the outcome of micropigmentation can be flawless, but every cosmetic procedure has its risks and downfalls. Here are some of the pros and cons of micropigmentation to help you know before you go:
Pro: Flawless brows – When done properly and without mishap, micropigmenation can give you flawless looking brows that require little to no effort – on a daily basis.
Con: It’s expensive – Unfortunately, flawless comes with a price – a pretty hefty price tag actually. While every salon will differ in price, micropigmentation will definitely put a dent in your bank account.
Pro: Long lasting – The results of micropigmentation last from 2-4 years. And that’s 2-4 years that you don’t have to worry about common makeup woes.
Con: Long lasting – The fact that micropigmentation is long lasting is just as much a con as it is a pro. Styles are changing constantly, but your results won’t be. But so if eyebrow styles change – oh well, you’re stuck with the brows you have!
Pro: Low recovery time – One of the best things about micropigmentation is that there is little to no recovery time involved. While the treated areas will appear dark for a few days, they will eventually fade to the perfect shape and colour. There may be slight bruising and swelling following the procedure, but you can return to work immediately.
Con: It can hurt – The level of pain will vary depending on your individual pain threshold, but micropigmentation can be uncomfortable. Luckily, the pain only lasts as long as the procedure.
It also goes without saying that any procedure has its risks. While the risks associated with micropigmentation are low, they do exist. Bleeding, spreading of pigments, and damage to hair follicles are all possibilities. The most common risk associated with the procedure is allergic reaction. To prevent this, your beautician should do a patch test beforehand.
And finally, you always run the risk of not liking the results. Be sure you know exactly what you are looking for before you commit and choose your specialist wisely to avoid this problem.
