4 Things You Should Know BEFORE You Microblade Your Eyebrows

Microblading is an exciting new technique used to fill in, shape, or create eyebrows. Using a hand instrument, microblading deposits pigment into the epidermis
through precise, feather-like strokes creating crisp, ne, hair-like results. This does not require removing or damaging any natural brow hairs. Microblading is the perfect solution for over-plucked, sparse brows or to give a fuller, darker appearance to eyebrows that are light in color. Clients who suffer from alopecia or
trichotillomania may find microblading to be a life-changing solution.

1. Choose A Microblading Artist:
Having a license from the state of Florida does not guarantee a good result when it comes to microblading. To make sure that you will have the ideal result, it is imperative that you do your research. About 40% of my clients come to me with complaints from previous permanent makeup applications. Once the client has had the wrong permanent work done, fixing the mistakes can painful, time-consuming and be costly. We have to deal with everything from scars to the removal and healing of tattoos. Always check your artist’s before and after photos, reviews/ratings, and only choose the highest-rated artists. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and be sure that your artist understands your eyebrow goals!

2. Plan ahead: Prepare your skin
Avoid blood thinners and aggressive facial treatments prior to your appointment. The ideal time for female clients to come in is 5 to 20 days after menstruation
since the skin is more sensitive before and during this period. Healing: For 7 days  after the procedure you should avoid sun exposure and sweating. While healing, your eyebrows may look darker but, as the skin heals the color should change to the appropriate pigmentation. Your artist’s schedule: Call your artist
at least 10 days before you require the treatment. Most good artists are booked weeks in advance.

3. At the microblading session:
Your eyebrow shape should follow eye shape, the golden ratio proportions, and complement your bone structure and areas of muscle movement. Before starting the procedure, your artist should show you a digital analysis of your eyebrows, explain to you what needs to be done to make them symmetrical, and prepare a
new eyebrow shape. You should be able to approve or make changes before the artist starts. Your artist should use the best numbing cream for optimum comfort and choose a color that best matches your natural eyebrows. During the treatment, you should relax all facial muscles and keep your eyes closed. This will
help the artist place perfect lines and make sure that your eyebrows turn out symmetrical.

4. After the treatment:
It’s important to follow your artist’s instructions and properly use the aftercare product. 60% of my clients don’t need a touch-up after the initial treatment. However, everyone heals and absorbs the pigment differently, and some lines might fade. In this case the client would need a touch-up to complete the process.
