Pre-procedure advice

What should I do before my appointment?
You will get much better results when you properly prep. It all starts with a good canvas! The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive and non-irritated. Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure.

  • Do not perform electrolysis one week before procedure
  • Do not tan to 2 weeks prior or have sunburned face
  • Do not have any type of facial or peel two weeks prior to treatment
  • Discontinue vitamin A or Retinol products one month prior to treatment
  • Do not work out the day of the procedure
  • Do not have Botox 2 weeks prior
  • Do not take fish oil or vitamin E one week prior (Natural blood thinners)
  • Do not tweeze, wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days before the procedure

In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit, please follow the following:

  • Do not drink alcohol 24 to 48 hours before your tattoo
  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure
  • Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood)

You will sign a waiver at your appointment stating that this advice has been followed.

Aftercare instructions

I will give you your aftercare instructions the day of your appointment.

Absorb, Wash, Moisturize! The day of the treatment:

Absorb Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every five minutes for the full day until using has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.

Day 1-7: Wash Wash Daily to remove bacteria and dead skin. (Don’t worry….THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT) Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial soap, Cetaphil or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in the smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.

Day 1-7: Moisturize Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab or your clean finger and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. Don’t ointment should not be noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo. Important reminders: Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days. Avoid topical make up including sunscreen on the area. Important note about showering: Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face out of the water while you wash your body, then at the end of your shower wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area. Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you’ll have much better results with your microblading procedure.

Don’t forget- Absorb, Wash, Moisturize!!

After care during the 10 day healing period:

You will be given a guidance on how to care for your brows during the initial healing period, this includes:

No sun beds
No sweating in the gym
No sauna
No makeup on the brow area
No anti-aging creams on the brow area
Do not pick scabs if any appear
Do not itch the brow area or pull the scabs away
Leave the brow area alone and let them heal totally for at least 10 days

Apply grape seed oil or after inked only

Avoid getting eyebrows wet or soaked in water

Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures. The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red & irritated. This is all 100% normal. DO NOT PICK. These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis.

Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 40% to 60%. At the touch up we will fine tune any area that has faded too much. Healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every year to maintain its fresh natural appearance. Fading will happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your bodies healing process. You may need to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows not a permanent one.
