Should You Wait for Your Botox to Wear Off Before Microblading?
Use Botox to Enhance Your Microbladed Brows
Ahh the wrinkle smoothing wonder of Botox. How could we ever live without it? If you’re considering microblading, you’ll want to tell your botox injector that your next appointment will have to wait because microblading has a longer lifespan than Botox. One of the goals of microblading is creating symmetry for the natural position of the brows. Your artist can also heighten your arch and the tail of your brow giving you a fresh and youthful appearance. This will determine how the rest of the forehead and the midbrow will be treated with Botox. So when you let your Botox wear off, the artist will know the exact position of your brows and your Botox injector can further enhance your brows.
How Long Should You Wait
Some say you need to wait two months after while others say two weeks to do microblading following Botox injections. Ideally, you should wait until you have had multiple botox injections so you know what to expect and let it wear off completely before getting microblading done. Even with an experienced Botox injector, it’s difficult to achieve the exact same lift of the brow. We try to do it exactly the same..that is, for your face.
What if You Can’t Wait
Don’t worry if you just had Botox and you’re about to get microblading done. Just have your artist stay within the brow line and create more fullness and definition by filling in any gaps. Then during the touch up appointment which is normally 4-6 weeks after the procedure, you can have the artist make further enhancements to your brow shape making the arches higher or the brow longer and thicker.
What Happens if Botox Makes Your New Brows Crooked
It’s common for Botox to cause asymmetry of the brows. If this happens to you AFTER your microblading procedure, wait two full weeks after your latest Botox injection and then return to your Botox injector if you are still unhappy with the appearance of your forehead. What they can do is inject a couple of units to correct the asymmetry of your brows.
