How To Prepare For Your Microblading Appointment
Updated: Apr 19, 2021
In order to get optimal results from your microblading procedure, you must follow certain pre-care instructions. These tips are necessary in order for freshly microbladed brows to heal properly and look their best. Pre-care instructions are designed to limit skin sensitivities and bleeding during the service which can cause dilution of the pigment color leading to poor results.
The following questions must be reviewed by the artist and client prior to service to ensure you are a qualified candidate for permanent make-up services:
Are you over the age of 18?
Are you pregnant or breastfeeding?
Have you used Accutane in the last year?
Are you taking any blood thinning medication?
Do you have any known blood borne illnesses or pathogens?
