It is important for every microblading procedure that you are at your best, and you are well prepared. This beauty craze is intended for everybody who wants it. Yet, only those who can follow instructions best can surely get the most benefits. Here’s how to get your skin ready for your microblading procedure by Alicia Shapira.

Things You Should Not Do
We understand that these are things you normally do early in the morning. However, for at least one week before the procedure, do not pluck or tweeze any of your eyebrow hair. Refrain from waxing the area to be microbladed, too. Even taking out smaller hair follicles through electrolysis is prohibited.
Don’t get your face sunburned. Chances are, the tanned skin will exfoliate or shed off. As it does, it takes color with it. Plus, when your face is tanned, you don’t have your original skin color. Matching the right pigment for you then will be trickier.

In that case, you should not tint your eyebrows three days before the procedure, as well. The color you’ll be having because of your artificial tint won’t last long, they’re semi-permanent. Our pigment is for long lasting effect and once your tint fades, the result might not perfectly match the existing embedded pigment in your microbladed skin.

Two weeks prior to treatment, skip your skin care routine which involves using facial or peeling products for your face. These exfoliators may inflame your skin or may make it sensitive.


Things You Should Not Take

Discontinue using Vitamin A or Retinol products one month before the treatment. These very accessible drugs promote skin cell changeover, resulting in newer and more delicate skin. You don’t want to have this kind of skin during the procedure.

Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure. They are natural blood thinners. Again, there won’t be any bleeding. Only very tiny blots of blood will appear around the microbladed area. These blots readily become blood clots. If your blood is thin, the process of blood clotting is slightly slower, and we don’t want that in our operation.

Similarly, pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen make the blood thinner. So avoid these as well, at all cost, especially when nearing the microblading procedure.

Lastly, in order to make sure that there won’t be any bleeding at all and color deposit is never poor, do not drink alcohol within 24 – 48 hours before the microblading process.


With all that, you’ll look great! Alicia Shapira of New Image Beauty Bar promises you that. All we need from you is a little cooperation!
