3 Tips For Your First Microblading Appointment

Posted on

Having beautiful, full, and nicely shaped eyebrows can transform your face for the better. Getting your eyebrows microbladed means you get to have gorgeous brows when you wake up in the morning, without needing to fill them in with makeup. Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure using a tattoo-like process to add tiny, natural-looking strokes of pigment to your brows. Here are three things to know before your first microblading appointment:

Choose Your Esthetician Carefully

Microblading is a delicate and precise art that requires a practiced hand and a lot of training. With the right microblading professional, your brows will be beautiful and natural-looking, suit your facial structure, and last as long as two years. It's important to choose your esthetician carefully to ensure you are happy with the results.

Be sure to spend time researching and reading reviews from existing clients. Your esthetician should also have a portfolio of their work so that you can see before and after examples. In addition, you may want to ask any friends who have beautiful microbladed brows for their recommendations.

Follow Basic Prep Instructions

Before getting microblading done, you should schedule a consultation, where you will be able to preview different eyebrow shapes and choose the one that best suits you. Once your microblading is scheduled, you will need to avoid harsh skin care products such as exfoliants for a few weeks. It's also important to avoid excess sun exposure because if you have a sunburn or any peeling your microblading appointment will need to be rescheduled.

In general, you should baby your skin around your eyebrows and keep it well moisturized in the weeks leading up to your microblading appointment.

Practice Good Aftercare

Finally, it's important to follow your esthetician's aftercare instructions exactly in order to ensure your microblading settles nicely and lasts a long time. You will likely be given a healing ointment to apply each night during the few weeks following your appointment, while your eyebrows are still healing. You will also want to continue being gentle with your brows and avoid using skin care products with harsh chemicals until they are fully healed.

Your esthetician will likely ask you to schedule a follow-up appointment for a few weeks after your microblading.

Getting microblading done for the first time can be a total game-changer as far as your beauty routine goes. Simply follow the tips in this blog post to make the most of your professional microblading experience.
