Curious about microblading? Here are some of the common questions pertaining to the procedure. It’s worth noting outright, however, that pregnant women cannot undergo microblading for the safety of the unborn child. We also recommend diabetic people or those with prevailing skin conditions to consult with their doctor first just to get an all-clear.
The first microblading session will take around two hours in total for all four steps mentioned earlier. It’s just like your regular saloon appointment, perhaps even shorter. The second session takes much less time, just about an hour.
Proper anaesthetic cream is used to numb the eyebrows so there is no pain during the process. People often report that they felt like they were getting their eyebrows groomed with a soft brush. This, of course, varies from one person to another but the artist will keep applying the anaesthetic cream throughout the process to keep the pain away. Slight swelling and redness can be experienced afterwards but it’s pretty normal.
People tend to heal at different rates, however, expect to heal after at least two weeks. The microblade strokes will turn into small scabs that eventually fall off within those two weeks. Some people with oily skin experience peeling after a while which is a normal part of the healing process. Others simply don’t.
The typical complete process takes only two sessions; one for the main procedure and the other for touch-ups.
No! Your face must be kept totally dry after the procedure for at least 10 days to allow the eyebrow to heal. You also can’t wear any makeup afterwards for at least a week.
Microblading is like a tattoo but it’s not permanent. While it can’t be simply washed off, it will surely fade eventually. Its lifespan again varies from one person to another depending on several factors such as skin ton, however, you can expect a lifespan range of 1 to 3 years. We often recommend yearly touch-ups to keep it well-defined.
Besides the pregnancy and other skin-condition health exceptions, people are generally recommended not to come for the session with a fresh eyebrow tint. You can bring your own pictures showing what you have in mind and discuss it with your artist.
After the procedure, stay away from water and avoid any activity that can make you sweat a lot. You should also stay away from too much sun, either by using an umbrella for shade or staying indoors until the process is over.
The service is as painless as possible. You are numbed multiple times during procedure with numbing cream. However, pain tolerance does vary from everyone.
