This blog is written for those considering eyebrow microblading and/or microshading, to screen yourself for contraindications, which makes this service inadvisable, to eliminate an in-person consultation. If you do not have any of the contraindications listed in this blog, and are able to completely follow your after-care instructions, you are ready to book!
If you have had previous eyebrow tattooing done by someone other than us, you are required to book the free color correction consult so we can see you in person and evaluate what the following steps will be, if any, before you book online.
If this is your first time, this blog is required reading before going to the "Request an Appointment" button to reserve your service through our online booking system. We require microblading appointments to be booked online because they are a large time slot and we ask that you consent to our cancellation policy upon booking. Additionally, we do not have a receptionist so we have designed this for ease of use for you and us, and you can find a time slot that works with your schedule and ours.
So there are a few things to consider before making your microblading appointment that can effect how well your skin holds the pigment. Therefor there is a time-frame you will want to wait if using any of these medications listed below, any of these topical skin treatments, and a few miscellaneous things you want to avoid/cannot do before and after microblading for the best results (every one of these items WILL effect your healed results if you book and have a listed contraindication or unable to follow after-care guidelines):
