Pre-Treatment Advice for Microblading
- Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly, or redden, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day.
- Please wear your normal make-up to the procedure. If you are having brows done, please bring your favorite pencils.
- If unwanted hair is normally removed in the area to be treated, i.e.; tweezing or waxing, the hair removal should be done at least 24 hours prior to your procedure. Electrolysis should not be done within five days of the procedure.
- Do not resume any method of hair removal for a week after the procedure.
- If eyebrow are normally dyed, do not have that procedure done within 48 hours of this procedure. Wait one week after the eyebrow procedure before dying brows.
- We recommend allergy testing of the red pigment (lip liner or skin tone pigments) one week before the planned procedure.
- Do not use aspirin or ibuprofen for 7 days prior to your procedure.
Post Procedure Care for Microblading
- DO NOT TOUCH YOUR EYEBROWS for 3 days. Before you wash your eyebrows, hands must be washed with anti-bacterial soap.
- While healing, do not use any Retin-A, Glycolic Acids, Peroxide, Neosporin or any other products besides the ointment that was provided for you.
- Do not scrub or pick your eyebrows.
- Do not expose area to sun or tanning beds! Must use a hat if in the sun.
- Avoid any beauty treatments such as facials, massages, lash extensions, swimming, whirlpools or sauna for 7 days.
- Avoid exercise and heavy sweating for 3-5 days.
- Do not allow heavy water pressure on your eyebrows for 10 days.
- No eyebrow waxing or threading for 7 days. Tweezers can be used.
- Must avoid makeup on the and around brow area.
- Do not apply the ointment with fingers, please use Q-tips. Also, do not double dip the Q-tip.
Failure to follow these instructions may result in loss of pigments.
What to Expect After Microblading
- You may have slight swelling, thickness, and/or redness for one or two days following the procedure.
- It is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the color during the healing process.
- The first 3 days after the initial procedure, the color will be a shade too dark, 6 days later it will appear lighter, then after 10 days the color will show more. Please be patient, healing can take up to a month.
- It will appear softer when completely healed because the color will come from dermal layer of the skin to the epidermal layer of the skin.
The brows are approximately 30 to 40% darker and bolder in the width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a narrower appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size then you desire. This is all part of the process.
You MUST WASH with a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water the day of treatment only. All after care product use will be given to you at time of service. Pat dry with tissue after washing the brows.
