1. Go over consent forms with the client.
  2. Perform a thorough client consultation.
  3. Take before photos.
  4. Design and map the brows (or do this after numbing).
  5. Numb the brows and cover with plastic wrap. Leave for 20-30 mins.
  6. Setup your procedure tray.
  7. Begin by mapping out the desired brow shape if you didn’t do this at step 4.
  8. Use a surgical marker to dot the brow shape and the brow spine/transition line.
  9. Wipe away the numbing gel on the first brow with an antiseptic gauze dampened with sterile water.
  10. Start the front strokes with the tool, slowly moving on to create the skeleton strokes of the brows (see step 3 page 97).
  11. Repeat 2 times to make sure the strokes are visible.
  12. One brow at a time, complete the head strokes, upper strokes, lower strokes, and transition/cascade strokes. (See step 4 onwards, page 97)
  13. Mask with pigment.
  14. Now do steps 9-13 on the opposite bow
  15. Repeat steps 9-13, 3-4 times(often referred to as 3-4 passes).
  16. After the final pass let the pigment mask set for 5-10 mins then wipe away with a gauze dampened with sterile saline water.
  17. Reveal the beautiful new brows to your client.
  18. Take after photos & videos.
  19. Apply a thin layer of Bepantham or Petroleum Jelly, to soothe the brows. This will also form a barrier to protect any dirt or bacteria getting into the microblading wound on the first day.
  20. Give the client verbal and written after-care instructions card and the aftercare kit.
  21. Set up the 4-6 week follow up appointment
  22. Breakdown workstation and dispose of all hazardous waste in the correct disposal method.


Pain management

  • Over saturating the skin with anaesthetic can make it waterlogged. The pigment will be difficult, if not impossible, to implant in this area.
  • Review the client’s medical history for contraindications prior to use.
  • Follow all manufacturer’s directions for correct use.
  • Keep anaesthetics refrigerated to prolong their shelf life or store them in a cool dark place.
  • All anaesthesia will work differently on different clients, depending on their pain threshold and skin thickness.

Post treatment clean down

  1. Remove and dispose of gloves. Wash hands for a minimum of 20 seconds with soap and water and put on new gloves.
  2. Place needles and razors etc in the sharps bin.
  3. Remove barrier film from all covered items and throw away in the clinical waste bin/yellow bag.
  4. Remove potentially contaminated items (including gloves) and throw in the clinical waste bin/yellow bag.
  5. Spray work areas with surface spray and wipe down.
