Microshading is a two-session procedure. Some makeup technicians combine the initial consultation with the first session.
To prepare for a micro shading procedure, you should avoid the following:
- alcohol, caffeine, ibuprofen, and fish oil 24 hours before the procedure to prevent bruising and bleeding
- waxing or plucking eyebrows 1 week before the procedure
- facials at least 2 weeks before treatment
- sunbathing and tanning beds on the day of the procedure
retinol or vitamin A products 1 month before the procedure
The initial session
Your makeup technician begins the session by measuring your face and deciding the ideal brow shape. Feel free to bring in photos of a desired look.
Once you agree on a shape, your technician will:
- draw out the shape on both eyebrows
- remove excess hair
determine the right pigment color for your brows
The first session is the longest and takes about 3.5 hours.
After the procedure, your eyebrows will appear darker for up to 5 days. The brow color will gradually lighten & soften as your eyebrows heal.
They’ll match the color of your natural brow after about 4 weeks.
The second session
You’ll return for your second session about 8 weeks later. This is the perfecting session.
At this appointment, your makeup technician “perfects” the design by increasing the thickness and tweaking brow shape, if necessary.
The second session is shorter and takes up to 2 hours
Post-session eyebrow care
Here are some post-session tips for your eyebrows:
- For the first week after treatment, gently clean your eyebrows daily with a damp cloth. Allow your brows to air dry, and then apply the moisturizing cream supplied by your makeup technician.
- Don’t sleep on your face for the first few days after the procedure.
- Avoid eye makeup, exercising, saunas, and baths for the first week to keep your eyebrows dry.
- Limit sun exposure.
Don’t scratch or pick at your eyebrows.
Skincare after microblading
Taking care of the area of skin where microblading took place is similar to tattoo care, if a bit more intensive. The pigment immediately following the procedure will appear quite dark, and the skin underneath will be red. About two hours after microblading, you should run a wet cotton swab that has been dipped in sterilized water over the area. This will get rid of any excess dye that’s on your brows. It will also keep the area sterile. It will take anywhere from 7-14 days for the skin to begin to appear healed and for the pigment to fade to its regular shade.
Follow these steps to properly take care of your skin after microblading:
- Avoid getting the area wet for up to 10 days, which includes keeping your face dry during a shower.
- Don’t wear makeup for at least a week. This is because the pigments are still settling in to the shallow cuts in your skin caused by the blading.
- Don’t pick at scabs, tug, or itch the eyebrow area.
- Avoid saunas, swimming, and excessive sweating until the area is completely healed and you have a follow-up appointment.
- Keep your hair away from your brow line.
- Apply any medicated cream or healing balm provided by your technician as directed.
Most technicians recommend getting a “touch-up” of your microbladed eyebrows at least once a year. This touch-up will involve adding pigment to the outline of the brows that you have already.
After your skin is fully healed, you’ll want to protect your microblading investment by taking care of your skin. Applying a sunscreen to the microbladed area may help prevent fading. Like similar cosmetic treatments — such as eyebrow tattooing — microblading is permanent but will fade. Fading may occur at a faster rate than brow tattooing due to the smaller amount of pigment used. Two years after your initial procedure, you’ll most likely have to repeat the procedure in its entirety.
