So, you have heard about microblading and fancy ditching the pencil for an easier, more natural-looking brow. After booking your appointment and discussing any concerns with your technician, it's time to prepare for your treatment. See Is Microblading Right for You?
There are several rules to follow to make sure your microblading experience is positive and you get the results you're looking for. Before your appointment, it's important that you:
Firstly, your stylist will discuss which shape you'd like for your brows and what best suits you. If you haven't had much luck with drawing your ideal shape, or your eyebrows have suffered over-plucking, your stylist will help. They will craft a new brow shape using conventional makeup - based on your face structure. Your ideal shape will be fashioned using a specialised protractor-like tool - and you will have the final say on their recommendation.
Before any microblading can take place, your stylist will tweeze your eyebrows to remove any excess hairs that lay beyond your new brow shape. If you are trying to preserve your brow hairs we can work with that as well.
Although microblading isn't a painful process, it can cause some discomfort, so numbing cream is used to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. The cream is applied to your eyebrows and the surrounding area and left for up to 15 minutes. During this time, you can discuss which colour/shade you'd prefer and what your stylist recommends.
As with having your eyebrows tinted, the initial colour will appear a bit darker than expected immediately after microblading. However, this will fade to your desired colour within 10 days.

Much like a tattoo, your eyebrows will undergo light flakiness during the healing process. This is completely normal. It's important not to pick at your brows - no matter how tempted you might be - and allow them to heal naturally.
Wash your eyebrows every morning and evening with water and gently pat them dry. Don't worry, this won't remove the pigment. For optimum results, it's advised that you avoid the following:
Roughly 6-8 weeks after your first treatment, you'll be invited back for a top-up session to make any minor adjustments
