how to protect microbladed eyebrows on sunbed

We all know the pain of overplucking our eyebrows. The never-ending cycle of tweezing, waxing, and threading can leave us with sparse, patchy brows that take forever to grow back. But what if there was a way to avoid all that plucking and still have perfect brows?

Introducing microblading: the new semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that gives you natural-looking, fuller brows. Microblading is quickly becoming one of the most popular beauty treatments, but there’s one downside: it doesn’t mix well with sunbeds.

If you’re a sunbed regular, don’t worry! There are ways to protect your microbladed eyebrows while still getting your bronzed glow. Read on for our top tips.


Microblading is a form of tattooing in which pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual tool instead of a machine. … If you are planning to use a sunbed, it is important to avoid doing so before your microblading appointment and for at least two weeks afterwards

What are microbladed eyebrows?

Microbladed eyebrows are a type of semi-permanent makeup that involves using a thin, needle-like tool to deposit pigment into the skin. The result is a natural-looking, fuller brow.

While microbladed eyebrows can be a great way to save time on your morning makeup routine, it’s important to take care of them properly to ensure that they last. One of the best ways to do this is to avoid sun exposure, which can fade the pigment over time.

If you must use a sunbed, there are a few things you can do to protect your microbladed eyebrows:

  • Use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher on your brows before each sunbed session.
  • Cover your brows with a thin layer of petroleum jelly before applying sunscreen. This will create a barrier between your skin and the sunscreen, preventing it from being absorbed into the skin and making it more difficult for the UV rays to penetrate.
  • Wear sunglasses or Protective Eyewear during your sunbed session to further protect your eyebrows from UV damage.
    What are the risks of sunbed use?

While there is no denying that sunbeds can give you a beautiful, bronzed complexion, it is important to be aware of the risks associated with their use. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation from sunbeds can increase your risk of skin cancer, including melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer). In fact, studies have shown that people who use sunbeds before the age of 35 increase their risk of melanoma by 75%.

So, if you are considering using a sunbed, it is important to take precautions to protect your skin. Here are some tips:

-Wear protective clothing: Long sleeves and pants can help protect your skin from UV radiation.
-Use sunscreen: Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 to any exposed skin before using a sunbed.
-Limit your exposure: Try not to use the sunbed for more than 15 minutes at a time.
-Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water before and after using a sunbed to help keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

How can you protect your microbladed eyebrows?

You can protect your microbladed eyebrows by using a sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher. Also, try to avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least two weeks after your procedure.

What are the benefits of using a sunbed?

Sunbeds emit ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which can help to improve the appearance of your skin. UV radiation can also help to:
-reduce stress levels

  • improve sleep quality
  • relieve tension headaches
  • ease symptoms of conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo and eczema.
    Are there any other risks associated with microblading?

    As with any form of tattooing, there is a small risk of infection. The area should be cleaned regularly and kept free of makeup to reduce the likelihood of infection.

Some people may also experience an allergic reaction to the pigments used in microblading. If you have a history of allergies, it’s important to let your microblading technician know before they begin the procedure.

Another potential risk associated with microblading is scarring. This is more likely to happen if you have sensitive skin or if the person performing the procedure uses too much force.

Finally, it’s important to remember that microblading is a form of tattooing, so it’s possible to develop an infection at the site of the tattoo. If you notice any signs of infection, such as redness, swelling, or pus, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.


In conclusion, to protect your eyebrows after microblading, you can use makeup, sunblock, or a physical barrier. If you need to go on a sunbed, it is best to use a physical barrier such as cling film or a plaster. Whichever method you choose, make sure that your eyebrows are protected from the harmful UV rays.
