Before

& After Care

BEFORE

There are some restrictions before your permanent brow appointment to ensure your skin is in optimal condition for the microblading procedure.
 

  • NO caffeine 24 hours before the procedure.

  • NO alcohol 24 hours before the procedure.

  • NO vitamin E, Ibuprofen, fish oils, niacin, aspirin, unless medically necessary, 48-72 hours prior to your appointment (Tylenol is ok).

  • Make sure you don't schedule your appointment if you are on your menstrual cycle as you will feel more pain and bleed more.

  •  Avoid exercising the day of the procedure as physical exertion expands your pores.

  • Avoid extensive sun exposure and waxing at least 3 days before your appointment.

  • Avoid the following treatments within 4 weeks of your appointment: laser treatments, facials, Botox, or other fillers and chemicals peels.


DURING

On average your appointment lasts 2 to 3 hours depending on the amount of work that is required. Your touch-up appointment lasts from 1 to 2 hours depending on how your eyebrows heal. Your follow-up appointment allows us to collaborate and add a little more thickness or adjustments to your eyebrows. All permanent makeup procedures are a two-step process. Touch-ups are required for the best results. Brows will hardly be perfect after one session. Touch-ups can be booked after 4 weeks from the initial brow session.  

(In rare cases, some people may need additional touch-ups.)

  • The first 45 minutes of your appointment are dedicated to before photos, mapping your brows, consulting with you to create the perfect eyebrows! 

  • Next 20 minutes we will be numbing the skin with a topical anesthetic and deciding on a color.

  • Once the numbing has taken effect, I will begin the chosen brow technique. This may take 1 to 2 hours depending on the thickness of the desired eyebrows and style.

  • The last step is to take photos of your eyebrows so we can see the transformation in the before and after photographs. I will go over your healing and aftercare with you. Then voila! you are ready to take on the world with your fresh new brows.
     

AFTER

Aftercare is very important to the longevity and appearance of your brows.

(Aftercare guidelines are the same for all eyebrow procedures: microblading, microshading, and ombre brows.)
­

Days 1 & 2

  • Please baby your brows!

  • Gently wash with clean fingertips and approved soap and pat dry with a clean tissue

  • Apply a rice-grain-sized amount of recommended ointment thinly to brows each night

 

Days 3 - 7

  • Let your brows breathe!

  • They are healing and may flake or lightly scab (totally normal).

  • On day 7 resume your regular washing routine but take care not to disturb any scabbing or healing

 

Do not rub, pick, or scratch brows. Avoid makeup, swimming, sun, sunscreen, and skincare products for 10 days. 
 

Also please avoid the following during the first two weeks after your appointment:

  • Increased sweating and exercising (avoid sweating).

  • Swimming, hot sauna, hot bath, Jacuzzi, steam rooms.

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning.

  • Chemicals peels.

  • Laser treatments.

  • Skincare treatments containing Retin-A or glycolic acid.

  • Touching the eyebrows except when cleaning the area and applying ointment

  • Excess alcohol

  • Gardening

  • Direct contact with animals
     

Your brows will appear considerably darker than expected after your session. Don't panic, it is completely normal and over the next 7-10 days the color will fade. After 4-6 weeks the true color will come through. Don't be alarmed by color changes throughout the healing process. This is normal. Symptoms you may experience that are completely normal: flaking, tenderness, dryness, itchiness, swelling, and redness. Please do not pick or scratch!  

 

Results depend on each client’s undertones, whether they have dry skin, oily skin, or other unique skin qualities. It is very hard to accurately predict how the ink will heal for every person. This is why a touch-up appointment is required 4 to 6 weeks after your initial appointment to assess and retouch any parts that may need perfecting.

 

Although rare, infections can occur. Signs of infection are puffiness or swelling, discharge, excessive redness, elevated body temperature, or severe pain. Seek medical attention if you have these symptoms.
