Microblading – When’s the Best Time to Do it


Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that involves adding pigment to the skin’s surface using a small, handheld tool to create fine, hair-like strokes. It is a popular procedure for those looking to achieve a natural-looking brow, as it can replicate the appearance of real hair. However, before deciding to undergo microblading, it is important to consider the best time to do the procedure to maximize the results.

By considering the healing process, weather, and upcoming events, individuals can determine the best time to do microblading. Here are four times people consider microblading, and whether we recommend them or not:

  • After Giving Birth

It’s not recommended that pregnant women get microblading, as there’s no proof that the pigments used are safe. Pregnant women are also more prone to bleeding, developing hyperpigmentation, and feeling pain during the procedure. To ensure a positive experience, they should wait until after the baby is born before considering microblading. The amount of time needed for recovery afterward varies from person to person, but it’s important to remember that it’s still a form of tattooing and should be treated as such. If it’s uncomfortable to get a regular tattoo soon after giving birth, then a permanent eyeliner procedure should be avoided too.

  • After a Period

It is generally advised for people who experience more severe menstrual pain to wait until after their period to get their eyebrows microbladed. This is because some people experience an increased sensitivity to pain during their period, and the numbing agents used might not be as effective. Everyone is different; some people don’t feel any pain during their period. It is best to wait until the pain has subsided to get microblading for the best results.

  • After Summer

After getting microbladed, it is important to take special care not to get the area wet or expose it to too much sun. This means avoiding activities such as swimming, going to the beach, or spending a lot of time in the sun. It is best to wait until the hot season is over and the skin has had time to heal. Aftercare for microblading typically lasts about one month. If your clients are willing to stay indoors or be mindful of their exposure to the sun, microblading can still be successful.

  • A Month Before an Event

If someone gets microblading, it is best to give their skin enough time to fully heal and absorb the pigment, which can take up to a month. It is not recommended to get the microblading done before a special event, like a wedding or graduation, as the area may still be healing and look intense or faded. It is best to plan and book an appointment at least a month or two in advance to ensure the skin is fully healed and the results look their best.


Microblading is a safe and effective way to achieve semi-permanent eyebrow enhancement. It is a great option for anyone looking for a natural-looking result lasting up to three years. The best time to have microblading done is after the summer months have passed and the weather has cooled down. This will help ensure that the pigment stays in place and the results look as natural as possible. Before deciding to undergo microblading, it is important to consult with a qualified technician who can assess your skin type and recommend the best course of action.
