Tired of filling in your brows every single day? Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic that uses hair-thin strokes to give you that optimal shape, color, and thickness. Microblading involves a process similar to tattooing, but the micro-strokes are much shallower and less permanent. At the end of the process, you’re left with natural-looking, beautiful brows specially shaped to frame your face.
What to Expect During Your Brow Microblading Session
If you have an ideal shape or color, bring in reference pictures to your first session. You can even fill in your brows just like you normally do before you come in so we can take in consideration the shape you prefer. Don’t drink alcohol or take any blood thinning medications (like aspirin, ibuprofen, or niacin), and make sure not to get excessive sun or use a tanning bed 30 days before and after your appointment.
You may experience redness and swelling up to 48 hours following your microblading session. The micro-bladed area will appear around 40% darker and bolder during the initial healing process. In the first week you will begin to see the area soften and the color will start to lighten while healing. The strokes may become itchy and flaky during the first two weeks, but do not pick or scratch the pigment!
For the first post-session 24 hours, it’s important to keep the area dry. For the following 10 days, apply the provided balm 3 times a day with a cotton swab. Before each application, cleanse the area with a cotton swab and water. Avoid soaps for 10 days when cleansing your face or showering. If needed after 48 hours, you are able to apply moisturizer before balm to prevent dryness/itchiness.
