Yay! You've decided to get your brows done! Beautiful brows are one of the easiest ways to frame your face, and semi permanent brows guarantee you'll look put together from the moment you wake up.
So what happens during a microblading appointment?
During the consultation the artist and client go over all the preparations that the client must follow prior to the initial session. It is crucial for the client to follow these instructions and be completely honest about allergies, health conditions, vitamins and medications taken. This could compromise the results of pigment retention.
BEFORE YOU GO:
Before the session the client must not drink caffeine or alcohol for at least 24 hours.
Do not use Glycolic Acid nor Retin A.
Avoid taking vitamin E.
Do not tweeze, wax or dye your brows a week before the appointment.
No botox nor fillers. If you have had either or both done you must wait at least 3 weeks before undergoing microblading.
STEP 1: the artist will cleanse the brow area with alcohol and remove any makeup on or around the brows.
STEP 2: the measuring and drawing of an outline of the brows will be done to create the perfect shape to fit the clients facial structure.
STEP 3: once the pattern is approved the artist pricks the brow area to open the skin and applies a topical anesthetic.
STEP 4: the anesthetic is carefully removed and the incisions begin.
STEP 5: if the client is experiencing lite pain, more of the anesthetic is applied until the client feels comfortable to continue.
STEP 6: once the client is ready there is a total of two passes of the strokes.
STEP 7: pigment is applied on the brows for 10minutes.
STEP 8: the artist wipes the pigment off with saline solution and sees if any tweaking is needed.
