Microblading Preparation: Do’s & Don’ts Before Your Session
In your quest for perfect brows, you’ve booked a microblading appointment.
However, getting semi-permanent eyebrows that heal well and last long requires more than just showing up!
The utmost importance lies in preparation, and it all begins weeks prior to your initial microblading appointment.
In this article, we’ll provide a comprehensive guide outlining the do’s and don’ts to ensure you achieve optimal results from your microblading session.
Do’s: Essential Steps Before Your Microblading Procedure
Prepare your skin
Treat your eyebrow area with care. Keep your skin healthy and ready for the procedure by naturally exfoliating dry skin.
You can use mild chemical peels but avoid harsh chemical treatments as they may cause skin irritations.
Keep your technician informed
If you have a history of seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis near the treated area, have had an organ transplant, tendency towards keloids or scarring, or extremely sensitive skin – inform your technician.
It’s essential to disclose any conditions that might affect the healing process. Your technician has the right to refuse service, especially in cases that might after your health
Stay hydrated and nourished
When your body is properly hydrated and nourished, it functions optimally, which can positively impact your recovery after the microblading procedure.
Consuming nutritional shakes and prenatal vitamins can help your skin heal properly, but don’t go overboard – just ensure your diet is balanced and healthy, and that you drink enough water!
Limit certain substances
It’s recommended to avoid consuming fish oil, aspirin, niacin, vitamin E or ibuprofen a week prior to the appointment.
These substances are known blood thinners and can lead to excessive bleeding during the procedure.
Resting well before the appointment can help minimize the likelihood of swelling and bruising, which are common side effects of microblading.
When you are well-rested, your body is better equipped to manage inflammation and promote healing, potentially reducing the severity and duration of these side effects.
Clean Your Brow Area
On the day of your appointment, cleanse the brow area thoroughly but gently. This will help to ensure a clean canvas for your microblading professional.
Extremely oily skin, or skin that has excessive residue from skincare can affect pigment retention during the procedure.
Do’s: Essential Steps Before Your Microblading Procedure
Both direct sunlight and tanning beds can make your skin extremely sensitive.
Sun exposure should be avoided, especially a week prior to your microblading appointment.
Alcohol or caffeine
Avoid consuming alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before your procedure.
They can lead to increased sensitivity, meaning more pain during your session. They also dehydrate you and often cause excessive bleeding, affecting the longevity of the pigments used in microblading.
Certain beauty products and procedures
It’s crucial to refrain from certain beauty procedures leading up to your microblading session. Avoid eyebrow tinting, brow waxing, permanent makeup application, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and facials before your microblading session.
These can interfere with the skin’s natural state, potentially leading to pigment loss during the treatment. Aim for a natural, undisturbed brow area for optimal results.
Steam Rooms and saunas
Heat can open up the pores and make the skin more sensitive.
So, avoid steam rooms, saunas, or any intense workout that causes sweating for at least a couple of days before your session.
Ignoring your menstrual cycle
Some individuals may experience increased sensitivity or lower pain tolerance during certain phases of their menstrual cycle, such as during the premenstrual phase or during menstruation itself.
Hormonal fluctuations can also cause increased bleeding and affect the way your body heals
If this applies to you, consider scheduling your microblading appointment accordingly. Usually, the post-menstruation phase is when women’s sensitivity to pain decreases.
Aftercare is Paramount
Once your session is complete, the technician will guide you through the crucial aftercare phase, providing you with detailed post-care instructions.
Adhering to these instructions is essential to ensure the treated area heals properly. Usually, microbalding aftercare instructions include:
Avoid any physical activities that lead to excessive sweating.
Keep the treated brow area clean .
Avoid touching the brow area until it is healed completely. If you must, always do so with freshly washed hands.
Avoid sleeping directly on your eyebrows to prevent any unintended friction on the newly treated area.
Don’t pick any of the scabs – let the dry skin naturally exfoliate and fall off for better results.
