The Microblading Appointment & What To Expect

A typical Microblading appointment can last 2 to 3 hours subject to the Microblading artist and the amount of work required. The follow-up touch-up appointments will last anything between 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the amount of work required for touching up.

Here's What You Can Expect At Your Microblading Appointment

1. Profiling of the client

First things first, the microblading artist will assess the client’s lifestyle, skin type, age, current brow status & what result they would like. Do they want something bold or natural? Do they wear makeup everyday or just special occasions? What face shape does the client have? This interview will help the artist create the best brows for their client. During the consultation process, a pre-numbing cream will be applied to the clients brow area to make sure they are comfortable when the procedure starts. 

2. Mapping & Drawing of the new Eyebrow shape

Next the artist will map & draw the new shape directly on the client’s face using a waterproof eyebrow pencil. This will be the artist’s guide for the microblading procedure. This allows the client to see the final look & approve the new shape before any further work is performed.

3. Microblading

The artist now begins the microblading procedure, according to the shape & drawing agreed upon with the client.

4. Remove the excess ink

Once the microblading procedure is finished, there will be some extra pigment remaining on the client’s brow area. The artist will wipe the pigment away, apply a layer of aftercare balm & the client can see their new eyebrows! Except for some redness, the client will be ready to go back out in public, no problem.

5. Photography

Before & after photos are taken of each client. All microblading artists photograph their work for many reasons, not the least of which, to have a record of their own art and to show their portfolio to potential clients.

Follow Up

All microblading procedures require a second touch up appointment, because all client’s skin is different and receives the pigment differently. It's impossible to accurately predict how a pigment will be affected by a client’s undertones, lifestyle, skin type & age.

After 4 - 6 weeks, the client MUST come in for a touch up. This appointment can last as little as 30 minutes or as long as 2 hours, depending on the amount of work needed. In this appointment, the artist will refine and perfect the brows.

At The Brow Lab, we advocate a light touch which results in less injury to the skin thus providing finer and more natural lines as an end result.
