We strongly encourage each client to read and understand the Pre-Care and After-Care instructions.  They will also be discussed before the microblading begins.  Feel free to email with any questions! 

PRECARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • NO caffeine, alcohol or exercise 24 hours prior to your appointment.

  • Avoid blood thinning medications, vitamins, supplements (with consent from your physician) and vitamin E, aspirin, niacin, fish oil, ibuprofen etc. 48 hours prior to your appointment. You may resume these immediately after your appointment. 

  • Avoid other high vitamin supplements like green smoothies, protein shakes, etc. 

  • If you have diabetes, anemia, blood disorders, compromised immune system (for example undergoing chemo, high blood pressure), a history of stroke or heart attack or other medical conditions, please consult with your doctor prior to the procedure.  I will ask for a copy of the doctor's clearance. 

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

10 day DRY heal 

  • Do not shower for 48 hours. This is so the pigment can harden and a protective, scab-like layer can form.

  • Do not touch your brows to prevent transmitting bacteria and risking infection.

  • Days 3-10 apply a thin layer of Vaseline to your brows to shower. Immediately after shower, blot off.

  • Avoid direct water on them for the full 10 days (avoid standing under the shower spray, washing them, swimming, rain, steam, sweat, etc.). Facial cleansing towelettes are ideal during this time!

  • No exercising for at least 7 days. Sweating increases bacteria transmission and softens the protective scab-like layer.

  • Avoid any direct sunlight and tanning beds for 10 days.

  • Do no pick, scratch, scrub or exfoliate the brows for 10 days. The body is using the scab to protect the skin underneath. It will exfoliate the scab and flake off when the time is right. Let any flakes or scabs fall off naturally, no pulling.

  • No makeup or products can be applied to the brows for 10 days. And avoid the forehead entirely with harsher products like retinol, acids, and glycolic. 

  • Resume normal activity and washing of the brow area after 10 days. If some flakes remain, simply avoid heavy exfoliating and be gentle. 

  • The skin is technically healed but still "fragile" after 10 days so be gentle with the area in general. ​

HEALING

Your eyebrows will undergo a healing process that will take about three weeks.  During that time, your brow color and thickness will change.  Please review the timeline below so you're aware of what to expect.  Some clients prefer to schedule microblading around work hours or events. 

  • Immediately after the procedure, your brows may look slightly darker and thicker then the healed result.

  • Between days 1 and 5 the brows will darken. This is temporary, IT IS NOT THE FINAL COLOR. It is simply a scab-like protective layer that has formed over the healing skin beneath . 

  • From days 7 to 10, the scab-like layer will begin to peel or flake off. 

  • After day 10 to about 14, the brows will look light, and you may think "They are gone!" This is normal. New skin is cloudy and making the pigment underneath.  

  • Lastly, around week 3, the new healed skin becomes clear and the pigment is visible again.

Microblading and healing is a process that requires patience. We will cover this is detail at your appointment very thoroughly! You will be given a copy of the 'healing chart' (below) and after care instructions. Every person is different and this is a general estimate of how your body will heal.
