Before Procedure Instructions

  • Do not use AHA, BHA, Retinol, Retin-A, Salicylic acid, or Glycolic acid skincare products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to your appointment.

  • Do not drink coffee or any caffeinated beverages on the day of your treatment. Caffeine is a stimulant and could cause your procedure to be more painful.

  • Do not drink alcohol 24 hours prior to your procedure.

  • Do not take aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, or Ibuprofen for 24 hours before treatment.

  • Do NOT discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor.

  • Do not tint your eyebrows one week prior to treatment. You should not tint your eyebrows or dye your skin for 2 weeks after your procedure.

  • Do not tan the week before your appointment. We cannot Microblade on sunburned skin.  

  • Do not wax one week before Microblading. Waxing treatments should be performed no less than 5 days prior to your procedure.

  • No chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatment, that will cause your skin cells to rejuvenate faster. This will affect the healing of your eyebrows and cause them to fade much faster.

  • Laser hair removal should be done 2 weeks before your Microblading procedure.

  • If you have had Botox or dermal filler injections in the brow area, you must wait one month from the date of your injections to have your Microblading procedure.

  • Electrolysis treatments, if on the forehead, should be performed no less than 5 days prior to your enhancement.

  • Since we are working with the delicate skin on your face, the area around your eyebrows may be swollen or red. You are advised not to make social plans on the day of your enhancement if this is something that will bother you.

Aftercare

  • Day 1 - With a clean tissue and lukewarm water, gently wipe your brows to remove plasma. Pat dry with a tissue. This helps to prevent scabbing.

  • Apply a tiny, rice grain amount of the ointment provided 2 - 3 x's a day with a clean cotton swab. Do not over apply as this suffocates the skin and delays healing.

  • Day 2 - Each morning & night gently wash brows using your fingertips, water, and unscented or antibacterial soap, then pat dry and apply ointment.

  • Days 3 - 7 - Continue to apply ointment 2 -3 x's a day for 3 days or until your skin stops flaking. Brows may be itchy. Do not scratch or pick. If you're uncomfortable you may use aloe vera gel or rose water to help with dryness.

  • Days 8-12 + - Brows may appear as if they're gone due to a healing layer of skin called Milk Skin. Do not panic. This is a normal part of the healing process and is due to the tissue healing from the inside out. The pigment will once again reveal itself when the skin is healed.

  • Do not apply makeup to the brow area for 10-14 days and when you do, please ensure your makeup brushes/pencils are sanitized.

  • No sun exposure, saunas, swimming, working out, or heavy sweating for two weeks. These activities can affect the healing process and cause loss of pigment.

  • Do not attempt to remove or pick at any scabbing, please allow the skin to heal itself as this can cause loss of pigment, unsatisfactory results and/or a serious infection.

  • Do not get botox injections until your brows are fully healed in 30 days.

 

 

 

What To Expect

Please understand that your new brows are an open wound. For the first few days, they will be darker and thicker than your healed result which takes 30 days.

Some clients experience flaking, scabbing, and itchiness in the first 2 weeks. Once this phase has been completed, brows will begin to lighten and may appear as if they're completely gone due to a healing layer of skin called Milk Skin. Don't panic; this is a normal part of the healing process and is due to the tissue healing from the inside out. The pigment will once again reveal itself when the skin is healed.

 

After 30 days it's normal to have some spots where the pigment didn’t retain, at which point we have a follow-up appointment to reinforce the strokes and fill in missing/faded pigment.

 

Microblading is a two-step process. A touch-up appointment should be scheduled for 4-6 weeks after your initial microblading and it is suggested to do touch-ups every 6-12 months to maintain color. If you do not return for an appointment within 12 months, your new appointment will be considered a full new microblading procedure and not a touch-up.

 

Failure to follow these instructions may result in pigment loss and/or infection.
