Microblading is a popular beauty service that uses small hair-like strokes with a tiny blade to deposit pigment into the skin, similar to a tattoo. The semi-permanent “tattoo” lasts up to 2 years and only requires touch-ups for maintenance. Microblading can change the shape of eyebrows, add fullness, cover sparse or uneven spots, and even scars. It saves time and effort in shaping and filling in eyebrows for a natural and beautiful look. Schedule a consultation online at Glow Beauty Bar to get started!
If you’re not a suitable candidate for Microblading Services, don’t worry – Ombre or “Powder” brows are a wonderful alternative. This technique creates fuller-looking brows by applying tiny pigment dots on the skin’s epidermis layer. The result is less permanent than traditional tattooing but still a popular choice among many clients. Achieve a stunning ombre effect by making the tail of the brow darker than the head, and enjoy long-lasting, beautifully made-up brows.

If you have an old tattoo that is still quite dark, the strokes will blend right into the old tattoo, and the results will not look as crisp as going over blank skin.
To ensure optimal skin condition for a successful microblading procedure, please take note of the following restrictions:
- Avoid consuming alcohol or caffeine before the procedure, with at least 24 hours for alcohol.
- Avoid taking Advil or other blood thinners such as Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, and/or Ibuprofen for 48-72 hours before the procedure. However, you may take extra-strength Tylenol if you have low pain tolerance.
- If you have recently tanned, it may affect the healed color outcome. Additionally, if you’ve undergone work performed by another professional, the treated area may have more scar tissue, and more treatments may require the skin to take the color.
- Avoid exercising on the day of the procedure, as it may open up the pores.
- Be aware that you may become more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
- Avoid waxing, threading, or tinting three days before the procedure.
- Avoid Botox or other fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments within four weeks of the procedure.
Up to 3 hours.
During the healing cycle, your eyebrows will undergo various phases:
Days 1-4: The pigment will initially appear sharp and dark on your skin. This is because it hasn’t settled in completely and is still sitting on top of your skin. As time passes, the color will gradually soften. You may notice excess pigment and body fluid exiting your skin, which is normal. Additionally, your brows may swell and appear larger during this time.
Days 5-7: As the skin starts to heal, you may notice flakes or dry skin resembling dandruff. You may think the pigment is fading too quickly, but this is just superficial color and dry skin being removed naturally from your eyebrows.
Days 8-12: Your brows may seem like the pigment has faded completely. However, trust the process and avoid panicking.
Days 14-28: Although your brows may appear patchy or uneven, the pigment will start to “reappear” as the pigment settles and the healing continues. Wait for complete healing before getting your touch-up/perfecting procedure at 6-8 weeks.
It’s recommended to avoid using makeup and cleansers containing chemicals around the pigmented area to prevent altering its color and disrupting the healing process. It’s best to wash around the treated area instead. Refrain from applying any makeup on the brows for at least two weeks. However, using makeup on other parts of your face is safe.
Most of our clients report little or no pain. Since the procedure takes a couple of hours, some clients have slept through it! I leave a topical anesthetic on the eyebrow area for 20 minutes before we begin the process, leaving most clients numb during the procedure—however, some clients with sensitive skin report mild discomfort.
