Microblading, is a form of permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.


The difference to ordinary permanent make-up is that Microblading is not done by a machine. The pigments are manually placed into the skin using Microblading manual pen which is equipped with sterile packaged blades.  The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes a fine cut. The cut is as fine as a papercut and you can hardly distinguish it from real hair.

Microblading comes with many techniques and approaches. There are Microblading, where the hairstrokes are laid out in a specific pattern across the eyebrow ridges, creating a 3D effect. Along with Micro Shadowing where the actual depth of the microblade varies on each individual hair stroke that also includes shading. This creates an even more dimensional, fuller, and natural result. Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present.  People, who are suffering from alopecia, trigonometrical or any other condition that causes hair loss, can benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows. This procedure is perfect for both men and women.


Microblading typically takes two appointments to complete. In the first appointment, the client is profiled and the eyebrows are drawn on with a waterproof pencil, so the artist and client can agree on the look. The artist then microblades the eyebrows and the client is ready to go back into the world. There is some mild scabbing and aftercare required, but your microblading should be completely healed in 30 days.


The second appointment is a touch up at least 6 to 8 weeks after the first session. This allows enough time for the ink in the epidermis to naturally slough off, and the color to settle into your skin. In the touch up appointment, the artist can see how your skin has received the ink and make any necessary corrections.


Sometimes a client’s skin undertones may have unexpected effects on the ink's color, and the artist may need to add color to adjust. These kind of corrections are normal with any microblading artist and an essential part of the process, as everyone’s skin is different and receives ink differently.

At the beginning of your treatment you will feel a scratching feeling while the artist does their first pass and marking the shape and design of the brow with their hand tool.

Aftercare Instructions


Please follow these instructions for 10-14 days after the procedure to improve and prolong the results of Microblading.  If you don’t follow these instruction, it can greatly affect your microblading results!


I have applied a liquid antibacterial barrier that will stay on and protect your brows.  Avoid getting anything on the brows, including water.  You will be given a take home antibacterial ointment that should be used 2x day, applied with a clean q-tip, for the first 2 days.  You will also be given a take home Aquaphor product that may be applied after 2 days if your skin is dry.  You may blot for the first few hours with sterile gauze to remove any excess fluids, if necessary.


Microblading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure.

After 5-7 days, make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment with clean hands.  This can be done once at night time, but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself.  Please continue to apply the ointment for 7 days.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure:

  • Increased sweating

  • Practicing sports

  • Swimming

  • Hot sauna, hot yoga, hot bath, Jacuzzi, and refrain from swimming in saltwater or chlorinated pools for 30 days

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning

  • UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment

  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris

  • No makeup should be applied directly on the brow during the healing process

  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds

  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab

  • Give at least 30 days after microblading for any facial treatment including peels.

  • If you are due to give blood after the procedure, please inform your nurse about the microblading treatment you have had as this might alter the results.

Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.  During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.

Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure.  However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact By Cristina Villarreal INC. immediately via phone or email (see below), to discuss further instructions.

Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.
