What to expect: (At Jo Artysan)
It is the long-awaited day of your microblading treatment! It is highly advised to allocate 3 hours of your time to your session and to have some food before you begin. After all, you would not want this process to be rushed on your face.
The salon presents a team of experienced brow architects and they will require you to sit through a short consultation before proceeding to get your brows measured according to the golden ratio of your face prior to your artist designing a fitting brow shape for you. During this design consultation, you will also get to learn and understand the types of brows that the salon specialises in. Your artist will be able to advise you on the best style and colour for your desired look.
If you are easily susceptible to pain, do not let the thought of microblading give you jitters! Your artist will make sure that your brow area is numbed well before starting on the treatment. Now sit back, relax, and let your artist do the magic. You may even put in your earpieces, listen to music or watch your favourite drama or movie.
In about 3 hours, wake up to a pair of beautifully transformed microbladed brows! Your artist will then take you through the aftercare steps that you need to take note of during your daily routine to make sure you get the best of your recovery process. On average, the brows will take 7-14 days to scab and up to a month to fully heal. It is also perfectly normal to not meet the estimated timeline as each individual’s skin is unique. When in doubt, always feel free to drop your salon a message.
All in all, having good experience is important. It takes a lot of heart and soul to get good at the art of microblading and semi-permanent makeup as well as the experience of working with various pigments on different skin types. “Someone can advertise that they are offering microblading, but that doesn’t mean they know what they are doing.”.
