Eyebrow Microblading Information

What is Microblading?

Microblading is the  manual skill of semi-permanent eyebrow drawing. The shape of the brow  is calculated according to the golden intersection & face morphology. Microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool, instead of a machine. Strokes are made with the tool to mimic natural hairs in your brows. Even though it is not as deep as a regular tattoo, it is still a tattoo because pigment is implanted under the skin.  

After the initial Microblading procedure, you will need to return within 60 days to have a touch up completed.   The artist will need to fill in areas that need additional attention to complete the look of the brow.  (After 60 days you will be charged, since we will need to do more extensive work to fill in where needed). 

Since microblading pigments are not implanted  into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally  fade overtime. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature).

Post Care Instructions

Microblading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure, other than Phibrows microblading skin candy. If oozing is present, gently blot using a cotton pad soaked in distilled water, then apply skin candy. Please continue to apply the skin candy for 14 days.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure: 

  • Increased sweating - avoid strenuous activity 
  • Playing in sports which cause sweating
  • Swimming
  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi 
  • Sun tanning or salon tanning 
  • UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading 
  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck 
  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment 
  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris 
  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab 
  • Avoid compressing your face in a pillow while sleeping, especially the first couple of days.

If no allergies, ibuprofen may be used to reduce swelling and discomfort. If other medication is desired, it is best to consult with your physician. Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.
Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Artistic Brows immediately, to discuss further instructions.
Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor. 


What to expect after your Microblading session

The entire Eyebrow Microblading healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. 

The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day. 

Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, clients may lose original hairstrokes which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That is the reason why most clients need a touchup after 6 weeks. 

Once the healing of the skin starts taking place after the microblading procedure, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure. 

Never rub the treated area, as it will disturb the skin from natural healing. 

Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. When using foundation, be aware when applying to avoid your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter. 

You can now enjoy your beautiful new eyebrows. You will simply love your new gorgeous fresh look!
