Care Before Microblading
❖ Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure.
❖ 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.
FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
On the first day of your treatment, wash your brows with a mild, natural soap and warm water, 4 to 5 times, an hour apart. Your first wash will be 30 minutes after your appointment. The washing is to remove any lymph, blood, etc from drying on the skin and forming a scab. Wash with a gentle motion and do not scrub or use any abrasive techniques. Always ensure your hands are clean before touching your brows. After you wash, you will apply a thin layer of the after care balm. Apply the balm on your brows after every wash.
Apply the after care balm a few times a day and before bed for the remaining 5 days of healing.
Ensure there is no contact with large amounts of water or any other liquids directly on the healing area for the next 7 to 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 any infection.
** Please note that it is best to book your appointment during the day, so there is time in your day to wash your brows 4 or 5 times, with an hour in between each wash. If your appointment is in the evening, wash your brows 30 minutes after the appointment as normal and apply the after care balm (continue to wash and apply the after care balm every hour, as many times as possible before bed). After your last wash (i.e, if you only were able to wash 2 or 3 times), apply the after care balm and cut a small piece of siran wrap and cover each brow, to keep them moistened throughout the night. Some clients find it helpful to place a sleep mask over the siran wrap to keep them in place. Do not place elastics or a headband that is very tight over your brows. When you wake up, wash and apply the balm again in the morning. Then continue with the regular after care regimen for your skin type.
MODIFICATIONS FOR OUR CLIENTS WITH OILY SKIN
On the first day of the procedure, wash and apply the after care balm as outlined above. For the remaining 5 to 7 days, do not apply any after care balm to your brows, and let them heal on their own, avoiding contact with water for 2 weeks (same as above).
FOR ALL CLIENTS
❖ 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.
Avoid applying makeup, powder, eyebrow pencil and any creams with active ingredients for 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment. This is to ensure the best healing results. Please 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, sharper, brighter, or 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.
