Microblading Tips

Permanent makeup is an art, not a science. Individual client results will vary. Remember, no two sides of the face are the same. Perfection is the goal, but brows are sisters, not twins. It is important that you understand I do not control the healed results. Many things will factor into your individual healed results from skin type to genetics, lifestyle to the environment, which products you use on your skin, exposure to the sun, etc.

What to Expect:

I allow two hours for our microblading appointment, so that you have plenty of time to get numb before we begin. Most of the treatment is spent measuring, drawing, checking, double-checking, choosing your pigment color, answering all of your questions about semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo, and going over the paperwork. The 3D microblading itself takes approximately one hour and post microblading care tips will be provided at your appointment. Note that the touch up appointments take less than one hour.

  • Microblading eyebrows is a "Dry Heal". You will be limiting the amount of water that the brow will come into contact with for a week. I will explain the necessary precautions you will take when washing your face and showering & I will provide you with a special shower shield visor in your aftercare package.
  • Do not rub, pick or scratch the treated area. It will cause pigment loss Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off.
  • Maintain moisture on your brows with the aftercare ointment I provide you with in your aftercare package. You will apply a very small amount before bed and again in the morning. None is better than too much, so remember shiny but not wet!
  • Avoid soaps, facial cleansers & makeup on 3D brows for 7 days after procedure.
  • Avoid sweating heavily for 7 days after your Microblading. Any activity that may cause sweating through or on the brows, can cause the hairstrokes to blur under the skin and there is no fixing this.
  • Use common sense when it comes to post Microblading care tips. The better you can protect the brow area, and the longer you can protect the brow area, the better your results will be.
  • STAY STRONG!
