21 Year Old's View on Her Microblading Treatment
My eyebrows have never looked better! I am 21 years old and I decided to get my eyebrows microbladed at Uz Brows in Los Angeles, CA. Before I had my eyebrows microbladed, I had very sparse hairs and very thin eyebrows. For a very long time I had debated on whether or not to get the microblading done and I had many doubts and questions that were keeping me from going through the procedure. Luckily, Uzmee was patient enough to answer all of my questions and doubts. She made sure I understood every detailed move she would be doing during the procedure and made sure she explained the products and tools she would be using on me.
Unlike most microblading places, her studio was dedicated to mircoblading eyebrows and only to that. Everything in that studio was nice, pristine clean and sanitized. She made me feel comfortable during the procedure and even provided a nice warm throw blanket so that I wouldn’t be cold. Before mapping out my eyebrows, she asked me what shape do I usually draw on, and what was my preference. I was going towards a more natural yet defined look, and that was exactly what she mapped out. After eyebrow mapping, she used an app to check for symmetry to assure that they looked as even as possible. Once we both were happy with the results, she applied numbing cream, and walked me through the healing process and what to expect afterwards.
During the microblading procedure she made sure I wasn’t feeling any pain and kept checking if I was okay with how the look was turning out. I love that I was able to have a say before and during the procedure. She followed the natural direction of my hairs and made sure nothing looked out of balance or unnatural.
After each round, she applied more topical numbing cream. There were 3 rounds in total and I didn’t feel a single pain during any of them. Once she was done she asked me if I was happy with the final look, and I absolutely was. Uzmee then walked through the after care steps one more time and made sure I understood them. The quality of service is what amazed me the most. She is absolutely amazing at not only client care but at her work as well.
The procedure was split into two appointments: Initial and Follow-up. My initial appointment lasted approximately 1.5-2 hours. The microblading part of the appointment procedure lasted approximately 30 to 45 minutes, and the surrounding time was generally spent administering patch tests and numbing cream, reviewing before and after pictures, discussing the color options, the eyebrow shapes, and pre-drawing the final look.
UzBrows charges $850.00 and that includes: your initial appointment and follow-up is complimentary as long as you book it within 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment. Uzmee did state that the follow-up appointment is crucial to attend for the touch-up treatment because results will not be optimal without it. I have yet to attend my follow up appointment, but I am already very pleased with the results.
For after care, Uzmee provided a small package with instructions and products to use during the recovery. Unlike most cosmetic procedures, eyebrow microblading was very low maintenance and hardly any discomfort, even after the numbing cream effects faded. I only had to worry about not wetting the area for the first couple of days and making sure not to scratch the scabbing off. Uzmee did tell me that the better I took care of the treated area and follow the provided aftercare, the better my results would be. She made sure to keep in contact with me, every week or so she would send me a message asking how I was doing and if I had any concerns. I am so grateful to have found such a wonderful technician, and I can assure I will continue visiting UzBrows for as long as I need to.
