Pre-Care

For best results, we highly recommend avoiding the following services or products prior to your appointment:

6 WEEKS PRIOR
• Avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasions, IPL, lasers and any facials

4 WEEKS PRIOR
• Avoid Retin-A, Retinoids, Tretinoin, Botox/Fillers and brow growth serums

2 WEEKS PRIOR
• Do not take antibiotics or tan. If you show up for your appointment with a new tan or sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your deposit. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the tattoo pigment with it.

1 WEEK PRIOR
• Discontinue vitamins (fish oils, turmeric, vitamin e, biotin etc). Vitamins are natural blood thinners and can cause excessive bleeding during your treatment.

48 HOURS PRIOR
• Do not consume alcohol or ibuprofen, headache medications or aspirin

24 HOURS PRIOR
• Do not consume caffeine (tea, coffee, soda, energy drinks). Any excessive bleeding will compromise your results.

Covid Vaccinations

We have been notified by the American Academy of Micropigmentation to halt all permanent makeup treatments in between shots.
Vaccinations are required to be completed 10-14 days before or after your treatment and cannot be completed in between the initial and touch-up appointments.

Aftercare

Post treatment care makes up 50% of the total treatment success.  Conscientiously adhere to the given advice because if not, you can risk losing up to 80% of the drawn strokes.

At the end of your session, we will provide you with an after care kit that has everything you need for the 7-10 day healing process. This may vary per skin type, but 10 days is recommended for the best results.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR THE FIRST 7-10 DAYS:

Microblading Treatment

  • Gently wipe the treated area with an aftercare wipe 1-2 hours after the procedure, allow the skin to dry and then apply a thin layer of the aftercare gel, repeat every 2 hours the first day
  • Day 2, gently dab the treated area with the wipes or wet cotton pad prior to applying the provided gel, make sure the skin is always dry before applying.
Powder Brows Treatment
  • Clean eyebrows 30 minutes post-treatment with wet cotton pads to remove any lymph, allow the skin to dry and then apply a thin layer of the aftercare gel

Normal/Dry Skin: Repeat every hour for 3 hours

  • Clean once again before bed, 4-5 times total
Oily/Combination Skin: Repeat every 30 minutes for 3 hours
  • Clean once again before bed, 6-7 times total
Day 2 – 10
  • Apply aftercare ointment 3-5 times a day for normal skin, 1-2 times daily for oily skin
  • Remember to always keep the area hydrated
  • Avoid getting the treated area wet for 7-10 days
  • No sweating or excessive exercise for 7 days
  • Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the brow area for 7 days
  • No major sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks
  • No facials, botox, chemical peels or microdermabrasion for 6 weeks

The Healing Process

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST 4-8 WEEKS:

The good news is, the Intensified color and slight redness are part of the initial stages of healing and will only be from days 2-5. Don’t worry, don’t freak out.. just be patient. This is the initial shock phase and we ask that you just simply trust the process. After 7 days, the brows will fade about 20% and shrink about 10% to a much more natural look. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal peeling or flaking may take place. Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process.Healing will vary with skin type, but you may experience color fading and loss of hair strokes. This is completely normal. We like to include a complimentary touch up session where we can assess your healing and fill in any missing strokes as well as give it a color boost. We can then recommend the best follow up timeline for future appointments.
