15 May How To Prepare For Microblading
If you are planning on having a microblading procedure done, you should follow the instructions that were given to you in order to prepare your skin for the procedure. If you were not given any instructions and you are reading this because nobody told you how to prepare for the procedure you are going to have, then maybe you should cancel and find another microblading studio to go to. The procedure you are about to have should not be taken lightly, because it is essentially a tattoo on your face that is semi-permanent. Even though there are methods of fading bad microblading procedures, they are not perfect and chances are you will be left with some ink. This can last as long as three years, and will make you unhappy every day you look in the mirror. A professional microblading procedure will provide good results that will achieve your goals of filling in the areas of your eyebrows that are too thin, or making the sharp shapes that are fashionable now. If you are to get the results you want, however, you probably are going to not only find a salon that is well versed in microblading but also prepare yourself a little bit.
Microblading is essentially tattooing, so the same kinds of prep that would go into the days before a tattoo should be followed before microblading. You are going to bleed a little bit because the procedure involves a needle puncturing the skin to inject lines of ink. Because putting a needle into the skin will draw blood, it is best to avoid anything that will make your blood thinner during the procedure. It is suggested that you avoid any alcohol or un-necessary medications that might thin your blood for 24 hours before you have your microblading done. It is also advised that you work towards drying out your skin a little bit before the procedure. Many are unaware that a needle will bounce off hydrated skin more effectively than dry skin, so if you have managed to dry out your skin slightly you will probably get a better result when microblading. This is because the technician can make for fine solid lines with the tool that is used. If poorly done, the lines will look like little dots (which they are.) If you are properly hydrated the needle will not punch through the skin as effectively, creating this situation as well. Many microblading salons will advise their patrons to start to cut back slightly on their water intake 24 hours before the procedure, as well as avoiding moisturizers on their brow area for that time frame as well. If you have slightly dry skin, you are probably going to have a better outcome than those with hydrated skin. Do not go as far as to do anything unhealthy, just try to avoid the methods that you would typically use for hydrating just before hand. Do these things and your professional microblading procedure should produce the results you are looking for.
