The average microblading appointment usually takes two to two and half hours. You are welcome to arrive with your full makeup on, especially your eyebrow makeup. The pigment we use can be a blend of several colors. Seeing you with your preferred color can help our technicians get the right mix. We have a few consent forms to sign, and a brief medical history survey. It is imperative you fill out the medical history truthfully. It is for your and our protection and safety.
Your microblading appointment starts with a consultation. Setting your expectations is paramount. We trust our technician’s skill and experience to give you the best brow shape for your face, but we want you to be 100% satisfied. You can let your technician know all of your preferences, for instance, if you prefer a little darker brow than your natural hair color or prefer it a little lighter; if you prefer a higher arch or were hoping for wider brows. If you have pictures, please bring them to your appointment.
We outline our microblading process below.
- Shaping – After the consultation, we utilize the golden ratio, your facial features, and lots of math! Once we draw the new eyebrows directly onto your skin, you will be given the opportunity to see if the shape and size meet your expectations.
- Approval – You will be given plenty of time to review your newly shaped eyebrows. Only when you are completely satisfied with your brow shape, do we move to the next step. Now is the time to speak up! Don’t be shy! We will make adjustments accordingly.
- Numbing – A topical anesthetic is applied to the procedure area.
- Color – While waiting for the numbing process to complete, the technician mixes your custom color.
- Microblading – Ink is implanted into your skin by making microstrokes that resemble hair with the microblade. You will hear a little scraping sound like a man using a straight razor on his beard stubble. Do not be alarmed. You should not feel any pain. If you ever feel any pain, please just let your technician know and more anesthetic will be applied. Now is not the time to be a “tough cookie”.
For those of you with oily skin, the pigment can fade quicker. More frequent touch-ups may be required above the standard 6-week, and 12-month. Your technician can give you the recommendation of frequency to maintain your eyebrows.
