Demystifying Microblading: Your Top FAQs Answered by Simonne-Louise Astley

In this blog, I aim to address the most frequently asked questions about Microblading, providing you with valuable insights to ease your research process.


If you've been contemplating Microblading as a solution for beautifully defined eyebrows, you probably have a myriad of questions. As a Microblading Artist at Simply Brows, one of the leading brow studios in Warwickshire, I understand the importance of being well-informed before embarking on any beauty procedure.

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique used to enhance the appearance of eyebrows. It involves the precise application of fine, hair-like strokes using a handheld tool to deposit pigment into the skin, resulting in natural-looking, fuller brows.

How Long Does Microblading Last?

Microblading is considered semi-permanent and typically lasts anywhere from one to three years, depending on individual factors and how well you maintain your brows. Regular touch-up sessions are recommended to keep your eyebrows looking fresh and vibrant.

Is Microblading Painful?

Most clients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. I use a topical anesthetic to numb the area before starting the treatment, ensuring that you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the process.

How Long Does the Microblading Procedure Take?

The entire microblading procedure, including the initial consultation, mapping, and the actual treatment, usually takes around two to three hours. This time allows for meticulous planning to achieve the best possible results.

Is Microblading Safe?

Microblading is generally safe when performed by a skilled and experienced artist using sterile, disposable tools and high-quality pigments. At Simply Brows, we adhere to strict hygiene and safety standards to ensure a safe and successful procedure.

Will My Microbladed Brows Look Natural?

Yes, one of the primary goals of microblading is to create natural-looking eyebrows. The technique allows for precise hair-like strokes that blend seamlessly with your existing brow hairs, giving you a beautifully enhanced yet subtle look.

Can I Choose the Shape and Colour of My Microbladed Brows?

Absolutely! During the consultation, we will discuss your desired brow shape and colour preferences. I will also take into account your facial features and personal style to create a customised design that suits you best.

What is the Healing Process Like?

After the Microblading procedure, your brows may appear darker and more defined initially. However, this will soften as the healing process progresses. It's normal to experience mild redness and scabbing during the first week. Strict aftercare guidelines and an aftercare pack will be provided to ensure a smooth healing process and long-lasting results.

Are There Any Precautions I Should Take Before the Procedure?

To ensure the best outcome, it's essential to follow pre-procedure instructions provided by your microblading artist. This may include avoiding alcohol and blood-thinning medications, as well as refraining from waxing or tinting your eyebrows in the days leading up to the appointment.

Conclusion: Microblading is a popular and effective solution for achieving beautifully enhanced eyebrows. As a Microblading Artist at Simply Brows in Warwick, I hope this blog has provided valuable insights and answered some of your most frequently asked questions about the procedure. It's essential to conduct thorough research and choose an experienced artist to ensure the best possible results.
