Are you tired of your thin eyebrows that were subject to too much harsh plucking? Maybe you wish that your eyebrows were darker without having to fill them in on a daily basis. The good news is that with new semi-permanent makeup trends, you can get eyebrows that are well done and perfectly shaped every day. You won’t even have to sharpen your brow pencil to help them along. Microblading can be a great experience with tremendous benefit, but you have to know what to expect.
Before you sign up for services, here is everything you need to know about microblading!
Choose your salon professionals carefully
Microblading is essentially a form of semi-permanent tattooing that can make your brows appear thicker and fuller. Because of the permanent nature of the procedure, you need to make sure that your professional knows how to microblade successfully. After all, microblading can last up to eighteen months.
Ask about their training and for any before and after photos they might have. You should also ask to see their certification. This research will give you a better idea of whether you can trust this person to bring your brows to perfection. Remember that you often get what you pay for. Choosing the cheapest professional to practice your microblading may not give you the outcome you were hoping for.
Microblading isn’t as painful as it sounds
The process of microblading involves placing tiny scratches around the eyebrows and filling them with ink. This certainly sounds painful, but you won’t feel much of it with the numbing gel that will set on your brows. You may feel a slight pressure in that area and some minor discomfort, but it will be relatively painless overall!
The process does take time
Make sure that you set aside the entire afternoon if you are heading into a microblading session. You won’t want to rush perfection, so prepare to spend about two to three hours in the chair with your artist. They must spend time creating the perfect shape and meticulously placing each new “strand” of hair for your brows. This isn’t a process that can happen in an instant if you want to have eyebrows that are well done.
You will have some irritation after the session
If you have ever seen a new tattoo, you know that there is definitely a healing process that it needs to go through before it becomes beautiful. You will have some redness and irritation around the eyebrows when you leave your session. However, it shouldn’t be too terribly noticeable. You can help keep irritation to a minimum by avoiding sunlight and continuously applying moisturizer to your skin.
When you’re ready to get your eyebrows professionally done, you need to find an experienced permanent makeup professional.

The latest trend to achieve the eyebrows you’ve always dreamed of is commonly referred to as microblading. If you have been considering ways that you can get the same look with minimal morning effort, microblading could be the solution for you. Unlike other beauty routines, this isn’t one that can be tackled from the comfort of your own home. You need to find someone who is specifically trained to offer this service.
Anyone can technically do microblading as long as they have received the proper training. It doesn’t require an advanced degree or a doctor to actually perform the procedure. However, anyone who administers this beauty service needs to be experienced in how to handle safety and sanitation, the equipment, and more. Anesthetics for this procedure might be necessary, so they should know to administer them to each patient properly.
Everyone should have to undergo a fair number of classes focused on facial morphology and the best way to shape the brows and color them. After all, you want someone to give you a set of eyebrows that look great instead of just mediocre. They won’t be able to change the appearance once the procedure is finished.
Consider the fact that microblading is essentially a form of tattooing. It tends to look more natural than other efforts to tattoo the eyebrows on, but it still requires a certain degree of finesse. If your new eyebrows are going to be relatively permanent, do you really want them applied by someone who is less than qualified to perform the services you want?
The odds are that you want to head to someone who is an actual professional who has been trained and taught how to apply your permanent makeup. We would highly recommend the same thing. Don’t allow anyone to perform your microblading if they haven’t been trained.
How do you know if your professional is actually qualified to offer microblading? Unlike other services that may allow just anyone to hang out their shingle as an “expert,” more detailed qualifications exist for microblading. Ask about what certification classes they attended to learn how to administer microblading.
Most programs will require 100 hours of training in addition to a Blood Borne Pathogen certification. Depending on your area, a professional could be required to take more than 300 hours’ worth of training in order to become expertly qualified for microblading. They might even be eligible to sign up for an apprenticeship first, allowing them to practice under the supervision of an expert.
You might also want to ask whether they have joined any societies or professional organizations dedicated to these services. For example, a specialist for microblading might join the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals.
At Lashes by Lisa, you will receive your microblading and permanent makeup application from a certified expert and an experienced permanent makeup professional.
