What is Microblading?

Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that lasts 1-3 years. Using a hand tool with fine needles, individual ‘hairs’ are delicately etched into the skin, yielding natural-looking results. Ideal for enhancing sparse or thinning eyebrows, it offers a solution for those with minimal or no brow hair. Pigments are carefully chosen to match natural tones, ensuring a realistic appearance tailored to each individual’s complexion and desired brow color.

How long does it take to heal?

Microblading is a day treatment; soon afterward, you can continue your daily activities as usual. It usually takes 10 -14 days to heal brows and about a month to fully achieve the desired color.

Your brows may still appear darker during the initial days but will, however, normalize within a couple of weeks (they lighten about 20-30% as they heal). This can sometimes lead to scabs, flakes, and itchy sensations. Make sure not to pick the scabs. Doing this may cause skin damage.

Post-healing, you might experience “milk skin,” where brows appear light due to the skin’s natural healing response. Over the next few weeks, exfoliation occurs, revealing the desired color once fully healed.

Is the touch-up session necessary?

A touch-up session after 4-6 weeks is a necessary procedure, given that the healing progresses differently among individuals. Some places might require adjustments of pigment colors, refilling, or additional strokes.

People with combination or oily skin types often need a darker shade. The touch-up technique is implemented to maintain any stray brows and to ensure color retention for a year. It is a significant step in the process of successfully creating microbladed eyebrows.

Is it painful?

Before the microblading procedure is carried out, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area to numb it, and sometimes, it can be reapplied during the procedure if required. Generally, pain will not be felt since responses to the drug are individualized. Lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine, and epinephrine are some of the anesthetics.

After that, a client may observe redness and a very light swelling, like an insignificant sunburn. Tylenol might help against discomfort, but if you take aspirin or ibuprofen, you should check with your doctor before taking any medication.

How long does it last?

Microblading duration typically lasts at least one year and up to three years, depending on the skin type, age, and lifestyle. The oily skin or the faster sweating may facilitate the process of fading. There are individual differences in the power of their color stability. We advise a touch-up every 8-18 months to keep the brows looking fresh; however, some people allow the product to wear off gradually, leaving only a light shadow.

What are the pre-care instructions?

Pre-care instructions for microblading include the following-

  • Avoiding alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, and blood-thinning vitamins for 48-72 hours prior.
  • Refrain from chemical peels, Botox, fillers, excessive tanning, or sunburn at least two weeks before.
  • Avoid Retin-A or retinol on the brow area for 7 days before.
  • Come in with brow makeup for a preferred look demonstration, and bring reference pictures of desired brow shapes and colors.

What are the post-care instructions?

Post-care instructions for microblading include

  • Keeping the treated area as dry as possible for 14 days or until scabs fall off.
  • Avoid getting the area wet during showers and cleaning around the brows.
  • Refrain from excessive sweating for 7-10 days and wipe the brow area with water wipes provided 3-5 times on the first day.
  • If the brows feel dry, apply a thin layer of provided ointment.
  • Avoid makeup, swimming, tanning, saunas, face scrubs, or chemical peels for at least 14 days.
  • Resist picking or peeling scabs to prevent affecting the outcome.

Is anyone not suitable for the procedure?

Microblading may not be suitable for individuals who

  • Are using Accutane
  • With heart conditions
  • Consuming heart medications
  • Diabetes without a physician’s note
  • Skin diseases or irritations on the face
  • Allergic to certain anesthetics

Pregnant or nursing individuals should consult with their doctor before undergoing the procedure. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone deemed unsuitable.

Can I get microblading if I have an old tattoo or previous work done by someone else?

Some of our clients may have previous tattoos created by other artists. Therefore, we carefully assess each case in order to see if they will match and work for the clients. Please send us front and side- profile images of your brows with additional information about the previous brow tattoo (if you have one) and the number of sessions you had.

Risks and complications

We ensure sanitization by disposing of single-use sterilized equipment and needles in a clean and safe environment. Following these before and aftercare instructions will reduce the risks. An allergic reaction to pigments is rather a rare case, but it is possible. To avoid the possibility of an allergic reaction, please perform a patch test among people with high bodily sensitivity towards things like makeup, metal, or hair dyes 5-7 days before the procedure.

Microblading FAQ’s

The average cost for Microblading ranges from $500 to $600 per session. Prices may vary depending on factors such as location, the expertise of the technician, and additional services included in the procedure.

Microblading, being a beauty trend meant for people ages 18-80 years old, gives them the opportunity of having natural-looking brows and that saves their time and adds to their confidence. It is highly appreciated by people who want to maintain a flawless look of fresh makeup 24/7 (even if they are working out or are allergic to normal makeup) or are bored of drawing on their eyebrows from time to time. Microblading takes away all the pains of brow dyeing and eyebrow pencils since it is a lifelong solution for the day-to-day easy, no-makeup cosmetics routine and eliminates the guesswork of brow color matching.

Microblading should be used with caution for individuals having medical disorders or using certain medicines. Pregnant or nursing women, along with diabetics and those who have blood disorders, come under a risk category and are being advised not to undergo this procedure. Accutane users will need to wait for a year before they are allowed to use, while Retinol users need to stop at least 1 month ahead. Usage of blood pressure drugs may slow the healing process. This implies that many sittings are needed to observe the desired results. If you feel misled, consult a professional who could help you with individualized evaluation.

Microblading can address various eyebrow concerns, including asymmetry, thinning, missing tail ends, wide gaps, and undesirable shapes from over-plucking or waxing. It’s also beneficial for medical conditions like alopecia, trichotillomania, and chemotherapy effects, among others, providing a natural and lasting solution to enhance eyebrow appearance.

To get microbladed, it’s crucial to choose an experienced professional with skincare or makeup expertise. With the rising popularity of microblading, technicians are abundant, but quality varies. Look for reputable professionals in skincare or makeup clinics to ensure safe and satisfactory results.

The best time to schedule Microblading is when you can allow your brows to go through the healing process, typically lasting about four weeks. Avoid scheduling around special events, as makeup is not recommended during this time. It’s essential to keep the brows clean and dry to ensure optimal healing and results.

Before your Microblading appointment, take care to prepare your skin properly. Refrain from using retinol, exfoliants, or other skin care products that may irritate the skin for at least 24 hours prior. Additionally, avoid alcohol and caffeine on the day of the procedure, as these substances can thin the blood and affect color retention during Microblading.

After your Microblading appointment, diligently follow the aftercare instructions provided by your artist. Typically, it’s advised to keep the treated area dry and protected for at least a week post-procedure. Avoid direct sunlight and activities that may lead to excessive sweating or water contact until your eyebrows have fully healed to ensure optimal results.

Initially, your microbladed brows may seem darker and bolder than expected, which is normal as the pigment settles. However, if you’re uneasy about the outcome, don’t hesitate to reach out to your artist promptly. They can address your concerns and make necessary adjustments to achieve the desired look, ensuring your satisfaction with your new eyebrows.
