My MicroBlading Experience // MaiLash & Brows

Hi Babes!
I was so excited and nervous to get my brows Microbladed but it's something I've been wanting todo every since I heard about. Their is so much unknown information about getting your eye brows Microbladed and my goal is to help clear the air about this procedure! So this post will be a little different. I'm going to keep updating you along the way. Day by Day and week by week! Then I'll do a final post of my before and after! Also a final review of my overall experience with Eyebrow Microblading! I also want to say this entire post is a partnership with MaiLash & Brows . All my opinions are my own and this review is 100% honest. My goal is to help women understand more about what Mircoblading is and what they should expect! Please forgive me on my update photos, selfies are hard to take sometimes! 

To start off, if you haven't heard about Mircoblading. It is a semi-permentant brow tattoo procedure.  Where a trained technician uses a handheld tool instead of a machine to make hair like strokes on your brows to give you a fuller look.  Basically it is life changing! :)

Day Before Appointment Remember to:
  • Keep hydrated by drinking EXTRA water. I normally try to drink my weight in water daily. 
  • Make sure you have the correct oil and bottle water for post brow care.
  • Have pictures of your ideal brow shape to bring to my appointment. I brought 3-4 photos. 
  • Make sure to have re read the before care instructions and post care instructions carefully! You are investing a lot of money and post care is SO important! So take the time to really read everything very carefully so you receive the best results! 
Day of Appointment:

I was so excited to get to my appointment that morning. I had brought my grapeseed oil with me just to double check that it was the right one to be using on my brows for my after care. My technician recommended grapeseed oil or organic coconut oil. I went with grapeseed oil just because I have never used it before and it's very safe for ALL skin types! I also had my brow shape pictures ready!

When going to pick put brow shapes for your appointment, bring more than 3! I say this because your  technician will be measuring your face to get the perfect shape, so a shape you just love may not fully work on your face only because we are all built with our own uniqueness! This happened to me and I'm so happy I had a couple different options to show my technician and she went off of that.

My Shape: 

As you can see, my technician drew a slight boxy shape around my brows. This is her outline to achieve the shape that was best suited for my face.

The picture on the left shows you the boxy outline and the picture on the right shows you after the first round of the Mircoblading processes. My technician did a two step process. First round, she did the core outline of my eye brow shape and the the second round she put more detail in my shape. Keep in mind, your boxy outline WILL NOT be the true shape of your brow!  The actual Mircoblading took about an hour and half and I did have numbing cream on but by the second portion, it was starting to wear off and I could feel more of the procedure. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say the pain was about a 4. It was more of an uncomfortable feeling. 

Day 1 after appointment Microblading: 

After my Mircoblading appointment, my brows felt fine just a little sore from all the work done on them. I did have a little tightness feeling but nothing uncomfortable.

Day 2 and Day 4 Photos post Microblading:

On day 2, my brows were a little light feeling still but again nothing uncomfortable. Day 4 feeling great! On the evening of Day 5 my brows starting feeling a little itchy. It's so important NOT to touch them AT ALL unless you are cleaning them.

Day 5 Post Mircoblading: 

Since my appointment, I have been following my technicians after care instructions 100%. Today I applied a little make up to my face for the first time because I had something to attend, other than that I would have not applied make up. I made sure to keep make up away from my brows.

I also have been very careful when showering. NO hot showers, which is very hard for me! I love my hot showers :) When washing my face I avoid my brows because you will clean them as instructed by aftercare instructions. Also your skin around your brows is still very sensitive. Make sure not to put your face directly into the shower head.

Day 6 Post Mircoblading:

Very little itchiness and no flakes yet. I have seen a major difference in the color as well. It has diffidently darkened since my appointment. Thankful that my technician went light on the color! With your day to day activities, your brows will be getting exposure to the sun and the pigment will darken naturally. So remember DON'T BE the color that you want for your end result at your appointment or you will have VERY dark brows. Microblading it s a process, so have some patiences because it will be worth it in the end!

One Week Post Microblading: 

Hi dolls! It's been 8 days now to be totally exact! I am noticing some lost of pigmentation now on both of my brows. Mainly on the top of my arch. Very little itching and no flaking! Not sure how many times I'll say this but, I'm really sorry about the photo quality with my photos. I'm trying my best to get the right lighting and angles for you. I did order a beauty light! So hoping that works better with my up and coming posts. 

Day 10 Post Mircoblading: 

Hi girls!! Ok we are almost to the two week mark and now I am starting to see loss of pigmentation. Don't be alarmed this is totally normal! I have been missing my mid day oil application only because I'm traveling this past week and don't have it on me during the day. Not sure if that would help in this situation or not. I have to say I am looking forward to my touch up appointment tho! :)

Day 12 Post Microblading:

Hi dolls and happy Friday! From my last update to now, which was two days ago. I can see that I lost a lot more pigmentation on the end of my brows. No itching or flaking at this point. I think my body was nice to me and didn't produce any flakes! I am traveling home tomorrow and I will get my next post up as soon as I can! 

Two Weeks Post Mircoblading:

I am starting to see more flakes now, totally jinks myself! ;) I started developing them the night this was taken. They are starting to itch a little more now too and it's so hard not to touch them but I just lightly dap them with my grapeseed oil using a cotton pad and it does the trick!
