How To Prepare For Your Microblading Procedure
You have decided to get your brows microbladed. Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo procedure where a special handheld microblading eyebrow pen is used to implant pigment under the epidermis. The specially designed fine blade is three times thinner than the blade used in a tattooing machine. This allows for the creation of very fine, crisp, realistic hair strokes that do not blur after healing. But, before you have the procedure done, there are a few things you should avoid for the best possible results.
