The short answer?
Many students recover their investment from the live certification course in six to twelve microblading treatments, depending on how much they decide to charge. This often takes anywhere from one month to six months, depending on a graduate’s level of experience and to what extent they may be set up to begin offering the service.
See what a recent graduate said on our Facebook page:
Once you realize that it actually isn’t very difficult at all to recover your initial investment in the course, it’s important to spend some time considering the potential upside to this investment.
Here’s a few questions you might want to spend some time thinking about:
How much could you grow your income by offering microblading?
How much more time could you have in your life because your hourly rate increases so much?
Even better than just thinking about the answers to these questions, it’s a great idea to spend some time writing out some scenarios to help you visualize how a career in microblading (or adding the service) could improve your quality of life.
To help you do this, let’s consider some numbers:
As you can see in the slide above, the average price charged in the United States for microblading is anywhere from $500 – $1,500, and a typical treatment usually takes about 90 minutes and includes one free touch up appointment. Follow up appointments are often offered at half the price of the initial treatment.
Kler, the head trainer at Microblading Academy USA charges $750 (at the time of this writing) for an initial treatment, and $375 for a follow up.
So let’s use Kler’s pricing for our analysis below…
Keep in mind, the annual earnings demonstrated below are based off of charging $750/microblading treatment. They only reflect initial microblading treatments and do not include follow up visits.
If, for example, you currently work 40 hours per week to earn $50,000/year, then performing just one to two microblading treatments per week can literally double your income.
And remember, it only takes approximately 90 minutes to perform a treatment, so you could reasonably accomplish this with just an additional two to four hours per week!
And what if you pursued your microblading business full time and grew it to 5 treatments per week or beyond to make over $200,000/year?
Could you buy a new car or finally take a vacation?
Could you to leave a job you don’t enjoy?
Could you pay down your mortgage or save for your children’s college?
Or how about the really important stuff like helping your parents, working less, and spending more time with your family?
The point is that when you can make a very high hourly rate like what’s possible with microblading, your options open dramatically and you can quickly shape your life the way you want it.
It creates incredible freedom. Not to mention that the work is extraordinarily fulfilling!
If you’re concentrating on how long it will take you to recover your investment, you are focusing on the wrong thing!
Yes, it is important to consider how long to recover your investment, but don’t get stuck there!
Microblading has the power to change your life – financially, but in so many other ways.
So here’s a few action steps you can take after reading this:
- Spend some time thinking and writing about the questions above.
- Read the reviews on our Facebook page from students who have taken the course.
- Watch the testimonials from graduates.
- And if you feel empowered to change your life, then decide if you want to do one of our live certification courses or the online certification course and go with it!
