Austin Microblading Brow Services

Achieve fuller, more even brows, or perhaps a whole new brow style!

Forget the worry of running out the door without your brows! Microblading is a permanent eyebrow tattoo that can bring a lot of advantages:

  • More youthful looking
  • Waterproof
  • Smudge-proof
  • Shorter morning routine

How long does Microblading last?


Microblading is a tattooing technique in which a small handheld tool made up of several tiny needles is used to create very fine, hair-like strokes that blend into any existing eyebrow hair. Microblading can create, reshape, or enhance natural-looking brows.

Depending on your skin type, the pigment will begin to fade gradually over a period of 12-24 months. Our clients enjoy long-lasting results for up to two years of perfect brows. Some areas of the brow microblading may fade faster than others. That’s why we offer affordably priced touch up services, such as the “just a spot” touchup for a tiny area or a more intensive touch up session. You can make microblading eyebrows last longer by treating them gently. One of the main factors that can lead to eyebrow tattoo fading is sun exposure that occurs over time. Applying a daily sunscreen can protect the brows by warding off damaging UV rays.

Is Microblading painful?

Some skin may be more sensitive than others. We will use a numbing cream to start, which helps minimize discomfort. With the numbing cream, there is little to no pain during the procedure. The brows also tend to be less sensitive than certain other parts of the face, so that helps make the appointment easy and manageable to get through.

How to prepare for Microblading

Microblading is an investment that requires proper preparation in order to get the most out of your brow service. Follow these tips to get the best microblading results possible:

  • One month prior to your microblading service, discontinue Vitamin A, or any Retinol products. These can irritate the skin and lead to patchy, flaking, or dry skin that may interfere with the eyebrow tattooing process.
  • Do not have any kind of peel or facial two weeks prior to treatment. Again, this can sensitize the skin.
  • No tweezing or waxing for one week before your procedure.
  • Discontinue taking Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior. (Natural Blood Thinners)
  • Do not tint your eyebrows within one week prior to the procedure.
  • Do not drink alcohol 24-48 hours before your appointment.
  • Avoid taking aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief for 48 hours before treatment.
  • Do not consume coffee before your Microblading or Permanent Makeup procedure.

*When scheduling your 1st appointment for microblading, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete necessary paperwork.
If you have any questions about the microblading process, please reach out to the team at Aloe Skin + Body. We are pleased to help and want to make sure you have a great experience from start to finish.

What to expect after Microblading

Microblading brows take time to heal. Temporary redness or pink skin are normal responses to a recent microblading procedure. The skin may flake or peel, just like a tattoo does when it heals. Your Austin microblading specialist will provide easy instructions to follow after the appointment, and will also be glad to answer any questions on aftercare and recovery to help make your Austin microblading results the best they can be for the longest length of time possible. Microblading aftercare instructions are as follows:

  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.
  • No dry saunas, or steam rooms for 7 days.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for four weeks after the procedure.
  • No smoking or drinking alcohol in excess, as it may slow the healing process.
  • Do not apply any topical makeup to the area including sunscreen for the first 7 days.
  • Do not go swimming for the first 7 days. (This includes swimming pools, lakes, and oceans!)
  • No facials, chemical treatments, or microdermabrasion for four weeks after your microblading appointment.
  • No picking at the microblading area. This may result in scarring or loss of color. Let any scabbing or dry skin exfoliate naturally.
