First of all, thanks so much for reading and supporting my first blog post! I so appreciate all of you!!


Now let’s talk about how the brows heal after the initial microblading procedure. The healing process is totally and completely full of ups and downs. There is swelling, flaking, pigment loss, and pigment coming back.


Immediately after you get your brows microblading they can be red and swollen. This is totally normal, some people are more red than others, but this will go away usually within 24 hours. Your brows will also be a little darker and really bold immediately after, THIS IS WHAT WE WANT. I want your brows to be a little “too much” when you leave, because they will scab over, flake off, and then you are left with only the pigment underneath those scabs.



DAY 1


DAY 5



Your brows will continue to get darker for about the next week. The color will become what I like to call “patchy”, this means that the scabbing part is beginning to happen. Do not freak out. This is complete and totally normal. They will lighten up!


From day four to nine, your brows will be flaking off this whole time. It is so important that you do not pick, pull, scratch, itch, or touch your brows. They could be itchy, but please, please, please do not touch them.


Around day ten to twelve, it may look like you didn’t even get your brows microbladed. They will almost look like “holy crap, they’re gone”. Your brows will appear like they are completely gone during this time, but don't worry - they will still be there! And this is also why it is vital to have your touch up.


DAY 11


Between two weeks and four weeks, your brows will start to come back! But they will be patchy. Most of these patches will fill in over time but if for some reason some area doesn't take the touch up will help fill the gaps.


3 WEEKS AFTER



The touch up will be done after 6 weeks, before 10 weeks. One of the benefits of the touch up is to fill in any gaps that may get pulled out as a result of scabbing.


The most important thing you can do is set your expectations up early and TRUST your artist!


It is absolutely critical that you follow your aftercare instructions and trust in your artist to get the best possible result. ​


Be very thorough with following the aftercare instructions! I will go over the aftercare in my next blog post! Thank you so much for following! I just love you guys.

Okay you guys, this is my very FIRST blog post ever. So be nice to me, hahaha. I am here to talk all things Microblading. I am excited to share my passion for what I love to do, here online! So let’s get into it.


The WHO:

Microblading can be for anyone and everyone. Everyone is a candidate, there are a few contraindications that may require a doctor's note in order to perform the treatment.


A couple examples where a doctor's note would be needed are Cancer, Hemophilia, and Hepatitis.


Once of the most common questions I am asked is “ Can I get microbladed while I am pregnant?” I would not perform the service if you are pregnant or nursing.


The WHAT:

Microblading eyebrows is a form of semi-permanent makeup that creates natural, beautiful eyebrows with a handheld microblade. It’s perfect for people who have overplucked (like we all did in the 1990’s during our Gwen Stefani stage) or those who want to define, darken or reshape their eyebrows. Remember when we overplucked to the point where the brows were literal sticks??? Haha.


Microblading originated in Asia over 25 years ago and has gone by many names: eyebrow embroidery, feather touch, microstroking and even “the Japanese Method." By 2015, microblading became popular in the United States.



Microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. But unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists apply each hairstroke with a handheld microblade.

This produces a very fine line that resembles real hair. Each individual hairstroke is hand drawn by the artist and blended in with the client’s existing eyebrow hair.





The WHERE:

  1. Trained/Certified

  2. Business License

  3. Bloodborne Pathogen Certificate

Okay this is a huge part of Microblading. You need to do your research. DO YOUR RESEARCH. You need to make sure that the artist you are going to is both trained and certified. This means that the artist has taken a course and passed the course. It is amazing the difference between an artist that is both trained and certified compared to an artist who is just “trained”.


It is also so important that you artist follows their state and county laws. This means that your artist has proof of a business license.



ALSO, there is one more thing that your artist should have! It is their Bloodborne Pathogen Certification! I use ProTrainings Training Course.



Here is a quote from what they offer through their training:

“Bloodborne Pathogens Training is an OSHA mandated training program for any person who may be reasonably anticipated to face contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials as the result of performing their job duties. ProBloodborne for Body Art Professionals contains bloodborne pathogens training that is specific to the body art professional”.


The WHEN:

The best time to go get your brows Microbladed is in the fall and winter months! Because of the aftercare instructions, we ask you to not let your brows see the sun, so those months are the prime time. I will usually run specials during the holiday months, for October, November, and December!


The WHY:

Everyone I know has something about their brows that they don’t love, just a little tweaking needs to happen to have them be perfect. I always remind my clients that eyebrows are sisters, not twins, but we can make them look like twins, if you want.

It’s an investment and you have to be willing to pay a significant amount of money to get this done. If you learn anything from this first blog post, it is to do your research and be ready to spend your money on some amazing brows.


DON’T LOOK FOR THE BEST DEAL. Look for the best artist.
