Microblading & Aftercare Instructions
Microblading is the art of manually tattooing fine hairs to create the shape of eyebrows for sparse, thin or bald brows. While similar to healing a regular tattoo, there is some extra care that you have to take when healing freshly microbladed eyebrows. Many people start to fade at the 6 month to one year mark but its possible for fading to occur sooner as every skin type hold pigment differently. For example, oilier skin might have a harder time holding pigment and may require more session to achieve a complete brow.
It is recommended that you get a touch-up at the six week mark. A touch-up is supposed to be just a touch-up and not a complete redo of the initial procedure. There it a flat fee for your first appointment and the 6 week touch up is complimentary.. Microblading pigments are not the same as tattoo inks they are semi-permanent and should be cared for as such.
Proper after-care will help encourage a healthy heal and reduce ink rejection.
The most crucial part of healing a new tattoo is your overall health and hygiene. Always listen to your artist and follow the instructions that they recommend. This page only serves as a general guideline for proper healing instructions. You may have different needs and after-care is something you should always discuss with your own PMUA or microblading technician.

Pigments from microblading are not implanted as deep into the skin as a traditional tattoo or even with an electric permanent makeup tattoo machine. This allows for healed results of very fine thin and crisp hair strokes, However, results do not last as long as traditional tattooing methods. A color boost touch-up is required between 12-18 months, sooner for oilier skin types, those who tan and do regular chemicals peels.
