Perfectly shaped and full eyebrows are a major contributor to the overall look of the face. This is the reason that eyebrow shaping has become a part of the makeup regime. Women all over the world try different techniques to make their thin eyebrows thicker and visible. Cosmetic surgery procedures have solved this problem as well. Techniques like Microblading or Microshading in Dubai are designed to give you perfectly shaped, fuller and visible eyebrows. Therefore, people and especially women who are not happy with their eyebrows can opt for this procedure to enhance their facial look.

What is Microblading?

Eyebrow Microblading Dubai is a semi-permanent makeup technique that gives you an illusion of natural eyebrows. It is also known as eyebrow embroidery, 3D brows, or Micropigmentation. The procedure involves implanting color pigment under the surface of the skin manually to create an appearance of hair strokes. For this purpose, tiny disposable needles are used. The results of Microblading are incredibly natural that no one can ever guess if it’s a tattoo or real eyebrows. 

What is Microshading?

Microshading is also a semi-permanent makeup technique used to fill thin areas in brows. However, unlike microblading, it places tiny pin-like dots of the pigment in the brow area. As a result, you get a powdered eyebrow appearance.

Are you a Candidate?

You can opt for Microblading in Dubai or microshading if you;

  • Have lost your eyebrows completely
  • Have thin eyebrows
  • Want to shape your eyebrows 
  • Are not pregnant or nursing
  • wish to increase your eyebrow density
  • Are not diabetic 
  • Are 18 years or above in age
  • Do not have extremely oily skin

How to prepare for the procedure?

You can prepare for microblading by following these instructions.

  • Avoid going out in the sun and tanning at least 2 days before the procedure.
  • Avoid eyebrow tinting one week before the procedure. 
  • You should not be undergoing waxing procedures.
  • Do not use alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) products closer to the eyebrow region. 
  • Fish oil, aspirin, niacin, and vitamin E should also be avoided for at least 24 hours before undergoing Microblading.

How is Microblading performed? 

The process of eyebrow microblading Dubai resembles the traditional tattooing technique. First of all, a topical anesthetic is administered to the treatment site to avoid discomfort during the procedure. After that, an outline is drawn with the help of an eyebrow pencil to create your desired eyebrow. Then a special pen that contains sterile needles is used to implant pigments under the top layer of skin. As a result, you get an illusion of thick and fuller brows. The whole procedure requires almost 30-45 minutes but the time can vary according to the patient’s requirements. Microblading is a simple procedure but it needs to be performed by an expert. 

Aftercare Instructions

It is imperative to follow aftercare instructions if you want to have desired and successful results. Some of the major post-treatment instructions for Microblading Dubai include the following;

  • Your eyebrows should not get wet during the healing process. So, be careful.
  • Use the aftercare cream prescribed by the skincare specialist for 7 days.
  • Avoid sun, tanning, swimming, sauna, or steam rooms.
  • Refrain from activities that make you sweat like exercise or running.
  • Apply sunscreen SPF 30 or SPF 50 on eyebrows.

Microblading FAQs

Does Microblading hurt?

It is not a painful procedure but every person has a different level of sensitivity. Therefore, a topical anesthetic is used to numb the targeted area so that you do not feel any discomfort during the procedure. 

How long does it take to heal after Microblading?

It can take almost 3-4 weeks for the skin to heal completely after Microblading Dubai. It is common to experience minimal swelling and tenderness after the procedure which subsides within 2-4 hours. During the second week of recovery, the surface color of the pigment exfoliates and leaves a soft color. However, during the third to fourth week, the color of the pigment darkens.

How many sessions are required?

Initially, at least 2 sessions are required for Microblading Dubai. These sessions are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. During the second session, the color retention is assessed and adjustments are made accordingly to give you perfect-looking eyebrows.

Are the results permanent?

No, the results are not permanent as the pigment lightens over time. Therefore, touch-ups are recommended annually to retain the results. The tendency of the pigment to fade away depends on your skin type, sun exposure, iron deficiency and pigment color chosen. For example, blonde pigments fade quicker than dark brunette color.

What factors affect the results of Microblading?

There are some factors that affect the results of Microblading. These factors include;

Sun exposure
The color of pigment chosen as some pigments fade quicker than others. 
Bleeding during the treatment because it reduces pigment absorption.
Caffeine, Alcohol and blood-thinning medications

Do I need to shave off my eyebrows before getting Microblading?

Certainly not. You should not shave, tweeze, wax or thread your eyebrows before getting Microblading in Dubai. You can continue these eyebrow maintenance procedures once your eyebrows have healed completely after Microblading.

What to expect after the procedure?

You will experience mild swelling, itching, light scabbing and bruising soon after the procedure. In addition to this, you will also feel dry tightness. By applying aftercare cream, you can get rid of scabbing and tightness. The treatment site might look too dark and uneven in appearance but after 2-7 days the darkness fades away and the uneven appearance also disappears when the swelling subsides. As the treatment site is healing, it might also change the color but this issue can be addressed in the touchup appointment.

Does microblading fade completely?

As microblading is a semi-permanent technique, its results will fade away with time if touchup sessions are not taken. The results can last for 1-3 years but after that, the pigment will start fading away because it is not inserted deep into the skin. However, you cannot predict the fading process because it depends on the skin type, the color of the pigment and several other factors.


Some of the noticeable benefits of phibrows Microblading Dubai are;

  • It is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure.
  • It provides you thick, fuller and well-shaped eyebrows.
  • The results are natural-looking
  • It does not cause severe pain
  • Your facial appearance gets improved


Even though eyebrow microblading Dubai produces natural-looking results, they are not permanent or for a lifetime. The results last for almost 6-12 months depending on the type of skin, pigment chosen and lifestyle. Therefore, it is suggested to get touch-ups after 6-8 months to retain the results of Microblading and to keep your eyebrows perfectly shaped.

How much is microblading in Dubai?

The cost of microblading varies from patient to patient because it depends on the expertise of the practitioner, the location of the clinic and the requirements of the patient. Therefore, you should consult with an expert to know the exact microblading Dubai cost.
