Care Before Microblading
❖ Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure. If you are on blood thinners, please consult your physician prior to your appointment and ensure it is ok to be off of your meds before your appointment to avoid excessive bleeding. If you have any autoimmune disorders, please consult your physician prior to booking.
❖ Avoid coffee, alcohol or energy drinks (or any caffeinated beverage) on the day of the procedure.
❖ If you are used to getting your brows tinted, do so at least 1 week prior to the microblading procedure.
❖ Do not tan or sunbathe 30 days before the procedure (no work will be done on sun burned skin).
❖ Do not wax or have eyebrow threading done at least 2 -3 days before the procedure.
❖ Do not have chemical peels, dermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments 3 - 4 weeks before the microblading procedure. This will cause faster skin cell rejuvenation and skin irritation and will therefore affect healing and the final outcome.
❖ Wash your hair before the procedure, and arrive with clean skin (no heavy makeup on the eyelids). Eyebrow makeup is ok if you are wanting the artist to see your shape preference, colour, etc.
Your brow specialist will instruct you on your individualized aftercare regimen based on several factors, including, skin type (dry, normal, combination, oily), and how your skin is overall after the procedure is complete. Some skins are more sensitive than others and your aftercare routine will be customized to you for this reason.
For all clients, ensure there is no contact with water or any other liquids directly on the healing area for the next 10 days (no heavy workouts to avoid sweating on your brows, no swimming, no sauna or steam rooms, etc). This is crucial to ensure proper healing and avoid infection.
❖ No sunbathing or tanning for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
❖ No chemical peels, mesotherapy, dermabrasion, botox, or any other treatments for 3 to 4 weeks following the microblading treatment. (If botox is done prior to your appointment, please allow 10 post botox before
Avoid applying makeup, powder, eyebrow pencil and any creams with active ingredients for at least 10 days after. This is to ensure the best healing results. Please also avoid all public pools, hot tubs, sauna's etc., for 10 days.
Two or three applications may be required to achieve the desired results. It is not uncommon to lose up to 70% of the colour on the first application.
While your skin heals be prepared for the colour intensity of your procedure to be
significantly larger and darker than what is expected for the final
outcome. This is a normal and expected result of the application and healing
process. The healing process will take a number of days to complete, depending
on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates and new skin regrows to
take its place.
