How to Prepare and What to Expect
Preparing For Your Microblading Procedure
Follow these guidelines unless your Microblading technician directs otherwise.
Avoid alcohol, ibuprofen, aspirin and fish oil supplements for at least 24-48 hours prior to your appointment.
Be prepared to lie very still for a 1-2 hours of time. Many patients bring headphones to listen to music during their appointment.
Wear comfortable clothing. Many of our patients like to bring a sweater to help keep them relaxed.
Avoid waxing, threading or tweezing your eyebrows 5 days prior to procedure.
Patients often find it helpful to bring in pictures of their ideal brow shape or color as it helps them to communicate their aesthetic goals with their microblading technician.
What to Expect During Your Microblading Procedure
When you arrive, a topical numbing cream is applied that stays on for about 20 minutes.
A complimentary consultation will be performed prior to the procedure to discuss pertinent information and to assess your treatment goals. The brow shape and color is custom-made to your facial structure and preferences. At the beginning of the treatment, precise measurements are taken to define a symmetrical guide and a reference grid is placed on the brow area. A marking pencil is used to draw the outline of the new brow. Your Microblading technician will provide you with a mirror to review the guide with you at each step of the way to ensure the shape meets your desired outcome.
The technician will create your brow by hand, strand by strand to get to the shape that is made just for you. We take into account existing brow shape, your facial structure, and your preferences. Once we decide on the brow form, we consult on the color. A customized hue is mixed to order (we will track the formulation, for future touch-ups), from pigments made with FDA-certified ingredients made in the USA.
A special medical pen is used to draw on individual small, hair-shaped strokes one by one, inserting cosmetic pigments into the dermis layer of the skin. The shallow cuts are filled with highest-grade pharmaceutical pigments selected to match or darken arches. The treatment takes about 1 ½ -2 hours, with enough time to assess each step of the way.
After Your Microblading Procedure
We will provide you with aftercare instructions, cleanser and moisturizer.
Most importantly: You will avoid sun, water (swimming etc), facial products on brows for 10 days.
