Microblading Appointment Breakdown

What happens at your microblading appointment?

I receive many messages regarding what takes place during a microblading appointment. So here is a complete breakdown of all the steps.

From start to finish your appointment will take 2 1/2 - 3 hours.

Arriving to your appointment

Upon arriving to your microblading appointment we begin by capturing a few before photos of your eyebrows.


Next, I like apply numbing cream so it has time to absorb into the skin and work affectively for you. I clean the brows with an alcohol pad, then apply topical lidocaine numbing to procedure area. This will help take the edge off when I start tattooing. The numbing needs to set on the skin for about 30 minutes.

Intake Forms

While we wait for the numbing, you will fill out and sign a client medical history form, tattoo consent form and a photo release agreement. After completing your intake forms, I view them and ask you any needed questions pertaining to the info you provided me.

Reviewing Aftercare

We then proceed to review the "Aftercare Instructions" I provide you to take home. I verbally go over each aftercare step, plus I like to add in some tips I have learned to help you reach the best healed results.

The Aftercare Instruction covers:

  • Sign and symptoms of an infection.

  • How to treat your tattoo during the healing process.

  • What to expect your tattoo to look and feel like during the healing process.

  • Long term care and maintenance of your tattoo.

After we have finished reviewing the aftercare, I have you ask me any questions and/or let me know of any additional information you would like to disclose.

Choosing Pigment Color

Now it's time to pick your pigment color. I will apply a few different color swatches to your forehead for us to compare and choose from. If you don't know what to choose, don't worry; I like to choose the best pigment color to blend naturally into your existing brow hair and/or the best pigment for your skin tone.
