social 4

If you have sensitive skin, don’t rule out microblading before talking to your artist. There are certain skin conditions that can cause your facial skin to be more sensitive than others, but as long as your artist is fully aware of your sensitivities and condition prior to the procedure, he or she will be able to properly prep you to ensure you achieve the beautiful results you’ve been dreaming about!

Talk to Your Microblading Artist (and Doctor) Before the Procedure

If you have specific allergies or if your skin is prone to being extra sensitive, it may be a good idea to find out exactly what products will be used before, during and after the procedure so you can run them by your doctor first.

It is also important to discuss all skin conditions and sensitivities with your artist, so he or she can prepare you for the best possible experience, For example, extra ointment or a cooling compress may be used at the time of the procedure to help reduce extra inflammation.

Prep the Area Yourself

If you are aware of your skin sensitivities, it’s a good idea to prep the area yourself prior to the procedure. Bacteria and dirt, for example, may cause irritation or infection in the area if it is not cleaned properly. An experienced and reputable artist will know how to properly prep and clean your brow area before, but it never hurts to take an extra precaution and do it yourself also.

You can clean the skin with a gentle cleanser and even exfoliate the area lightly to remove dead skin and any extra dirt or bacteria. Make sure not to over exfoliate, however, as you want to keep some of the natural oils.

After you clean the area, it is crucial to moisturize! This adds a protective layer/barrier to the skin. Dry skin is more likely to flake and become irritable during and after microblading.

Stay Out of the Sun Before the Procedure

If your skin is already sensitive, you want to make sure you don’t add extra factors such as a sunburn. A sunburn can not only make the area extra sensitive, but it can also cause the skin to peel which will prevent the color from setting evenly and lasting.

Follow Post Care Instructions!

Following the post care instructions is vital to ensuring the tattoo heals properly. For example, you’ll want to keep the area clean and use the ointment provided by your artist. Ointments such as Aquaphor add a thick protective layer to the area and can help prevent irritation.

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.

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.
