  • Eyebrows: The first appointment is about giving the client instructions of what is microblading, what to expect of the healing process, and how to follow the aftercare process.
  • The client will fill up a personal medical record and consent form. Typically, it takes 2h30 – 3 hours depending on how long it takes for your approval of the design/drawing.

  • Measuring and drawing can take up to 1 hour, numbing takes 15 minutes, Microblading, Ombre or Hybrid Brows may take 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Saline Removal/Lightening Session: Depending on the situation, it may take up to 1 hour – 1h30. 

Everyone has different pain tolerances. 

  • Before the microblading procedure the technician will apply numbing creams on the procedure area.
  • The technician will use the same anesthetic throughout your procedure to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible.
  • Further note that if you are on your cycle or if you have had alcoholic beverages, coffee, or energizing drinks the day of and/or the night before, you may be more sensitive to the procedure.

All equipment and workspace have been fully disinfected prior to your appointment with CaviCide products. Hand tools, tweezers and scissors are disinfected with Preempt Accel CS20 and sterilized in the autoclave.

  • Disposable materials: all microblading and digital machine needles are single use only and in individually sterilized packaging disposed into a sharps box along with all disposable items such as gloves, cotton, gauze, ink rings, cotton swabs, micro brushes, mascara wand, dental bibs, and hairnets used during the procedure.
  • Eyebrows: After the procedure, the eyebrows will look thicker and darker for the next 5-7 days. This is completely normal as the excess pigment is sitting on top of your skin. This will gradually fade during the healing process. Redness and swelling is minimal.
  • It will approximately take 5-7 days for the brows to peel a thicker scab. They may appear very light underneath after they peel due to the tissue still healing from the inside out, even though the surface has healed. After approximately 8-12 days, a thin skin layer will naturally exfoliate itself. The true colour will reveal itself after approximately 13-30 days once fully healed. All of this depends on how your skin will react to the procedure (specially pigment retention) and if the client followed exactly the aftercare instructions.
  • Remember: everyone has different reactions once the organisms differ from one another.
  • High quality products such as pigments, materials, and equipment are used to ensure the best results but do not guarantee how your skin will react to the procedure
  • It also depends on how your skin will react to the procedure (especially the pigment retention).
  • Saline Removal/Lightening Session: after the procedure, the area will look red and swollen. The healing process takes 2 weeks to heal. It’s needed to keep the area clean and it MUST scab (the old pigment will come off with the scabs)
