It should be a two-step process – “One of the most important parts of the process is the consultation and setting proper expectations,” shares AmSpa Member Maegen Kennedy, PA-C and Founder of Fleek Brows Microblading Training. Microblading is done in two steps, the initial consult / appointment and the touch up session 6 weeks later. A detailed consent form outlining the potential risks is given during the consultation and should be reviewed carefully with the patient.
A trained hand – “Microblading is performed with a hand held pen that holds a sterile ‘blade’ on the tip,” explains Maegen. “After the eyebrow is drawn, the skin is cleaned and the blade is dipped into pigment. The pigmented blade is placed on the epidermis and a ‘swiping’ or ‘stroking’ motion of the blade penetrates the upper layers of the skin while depositing pigment.” Do your research before you book and look at examples of your provider’s past work to ensure you like their touch.
Post-procedure support – The excitement of your new brows will be unavoidable, but professionals suggest not touching them for at least 24 hours, due to skin sensitivity. Clients are instructed to avoid gyms, showers, sweating, sun and makeup for this time frame as well. A form with detailed aftercare instructions should be given to the patient to take home. “Having a point of contact for the client post procedure can help through the healing phase,” Maegen adds.
