What Is The Difference Between Each Microblading Appointment?
When going through information with each patient, it is important to explain the expectations of each appointment. In this blog, I’m going to be talking about what you should be prepared for at each microblading session.
In my last blog post, I talked about the purpose of a consultation, which is to discuss the procedure with the client, along with their personal beauty goals. If you do not book a separate appointment for a consultation and feel ready, your artist can go over that portion at your first session. In doing this, we will talk about your options and what technique would be best for you.
The initial microblading appointment should take approximately 2-3 hours. I will take photos of your bare brows for your medical records, sanitize the brow region and map your brows to your desired shape using an eyebrow pencil and ruler. Numbing cream will then be applied for about 25-30 minutes. Lastly I will color match the pigment to your hair and then begin the microblading procedure. When completed, after photos of your new brows will be taken for your patient records, we’ll go over microblading aftercare, and you’ll be on your way!
One thing people may not realize is that in permanent cosmetics, touch ups are normal and simply part of the process. Microblading requires two sessions – the initial appointment and the touch up appointment. About 6-12 weeks after your initial appointment, you should come back to see me for the second session, or as I like to call it “the perfecting appointment”. During this time, we take a look to see how your brows have healed and make any adjustments in terms of color or shape to PERFECT your brows!
The duration of microbladed brows varies from person to person, so it is recommended that each patient returns 12-18 months after their “perfecting appointment” for a “color refresh”. A “color refresh” is basically a yearly microblading appointment to go over all of the brow hair strokes and restore the color, bringing eyebrows back to life!
