HomeBlogWhat to Expect During Your First Microblading Session

Microblading has become a go-to solution for individuals seeking fuller, more defined eyebrows. If you’ve decided to take the plunge and book your first microblading session, you’re likely excited and a little worried about the unknown. Here’s a step-by-step guide on what your first microblading session might entail.

What to Expect During Your First Microblading Session

  1. Consultation and Paperwork. The initial consultation allows you to discuss your expectations, preferences, and any concerns you may have. You’ll fill out paperwork that includes a medical history form and a consent form. Your microblading artist will discuss the shape, thickness, and color that would best suit your face.
  2. Prepping the Eyebrow Area. A clean and numb eyebrow area ensures a smoother microblading process. Your artist will cleanse the eyebrow area and may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  3. Eyebrow Mapping. Mapping ensures that the final shape of your eyebrows is symmetrical and suits your facial structure. Using specialized tools, your artist will outline the shape of your future brows. You’ll have the opportunity to review and approve the shape before proceeding.
  4. The Microblading Procedure. This is the core part of the session, where the pigment is applied to your skin. Using a handheld tool with fine needles, your artist will make tiny incisions in your skin and fill them with pigment. You may feel slight discomfort, but it’s generally tolerable.
  5. Immediate Aftercare. Proper aftercare immediately following the procedure helps to optimize the healing process. Your artist will apply a soothing ointment to the treated area and provide you with aftercare instructions to follow at home.
  6. Review and Next Steps. Understanding the healing process and next steps ensures that you know how to take care of your new brows. Your artist will explain what to expect during the healing process and when to come back for a touch-up session, usually within 4-6 weeks.
