3 Things To Look For When Choosing Your Microblading in San Diego

Client Preference

Finding a Microblading artist you trust can be a daunting task, I mean come on, it’s a semi-permanent face tattoo! To make it simpler we have outlined 4 key qualities to look for when on your hunt.

  1. Portfolio – First and foremost, make sure the artist in consideration has their work publicly displayed and easily viewable. Brows can come in several different styles, and you want your artist to do the style that you are looking for. This may take some introspection to find out exactly what it is you want. Here at microblading san diego, we believe every pair of brows should be portfolio worthy work. To see more of our work visit our instagram or our microblading home page!
  2. Consultation – I like to offer all my clients a consultation to discuss their desired eyebrow goals. You should feel 100% comfortable with your Microblading artist, and fully confident in their ability to bring out your best pair of eyebrows. Feel free to ask questions about the procedure, the tools used, the various shapes and shades of brows, and what you think works best for you. Microblading San Diego offers 15 minute consultations for anybody who wants the chance to learn more in person!
  3. Certified & Licensed – This would seem like a no brainer because who would practice without a license right?! Well one would be surprised. Feel free to ask your tech things such as “Where were you certified?” and “Are you licensed in San Diego for Microblading?” Microblading San Diego is licensed and 3 times certified.
  4. Reviews – Loving the pictures, consultation, and licensing is all very important. However, checking in on other customers experiences is also a large component of quality microblading. Take the time to read the reviews that relate to Microblading. You want to choose a salon that takes the time to follow up with their clients and makes sure that they have an exceptional experience. Microblading technicians that do this repeatedly will build a good track record, and those reviews will reflect that.

Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know before microblading.


Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo, used for the purpose of reconstructing sparse eyebrows or simply to enhance already full brows. The proper ink is chosen and mixed to fit your exact skin tone to look the most natural and realistic. We then create small, hair-like strokes to perfectly mimic natural and gorgeous eyebrows.


Healed microblading results last anywhere from 1-2 years, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, results usually fade a little faster than those with dryer skin types. Touch-ups are required to maintain the microbladed look. First touch-up is included.


Please read the faqs page completely to ensure that you are an eligible candidate for microblading. Prior to your procedure: -Do not take Advil or other blood thinners such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Niacin or Vitamin E ,drink alcohol or take caffeine within 24 hours of your procedure, go tanning within 24 hours of the procedure, make sure to not have had facial fillers done at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure. Do not do facial fillers at least 2 weeks after the procedure.

Please contact us if you have had any facial fillers in the past two months*. Please contact us if you have used any prescription acne medication in the past year*.


Microbladed brows typically take 6 weeks to fully heal. Within the first week the pigment will appear much darker, and your eyebrows will look very bold. Do not worry! This is part of the healing process and it means that you are healing properly. After the first week the eyebrows will begin to get lighter, as by now the scabbing should be taking place. This is also normal! Around week 2, most of the scabbing should be done, and you will begin to see your full and natural eyebrow shape come through. Let it heal naturally, and only begin to wash your eyebrows with a mild foamy anti-bacterial soap after 14 days.


There should be absolutely NO picking at your eyebrows for the first 10 days. The first 10 days are the most crucial for having healthy healed eyebrows. Let the epithelial crust and natural scabbing occur on its own. After the first two weeks, you are allowed to begin washing them again. Try to keep the area as dry as possible in the first 10 days. Do not swim in fresh, salt, or chlorinated pool water for at least 2-4 weeks following your procedure. Limit sun exposure for 14 days following the procedure. For the first two weeks, avoid:Water, cleansers, creams, makeup, heavy sweating in the brow area, tanning and heavy sun exposure, Facials, facial fillers, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion.


Discomfort is minimal, although a numbing cream is applied to alleviate any discomfort.
