Microblading

Before and After Care

Preparation is key for the best results. Follow the steps below for the best results, including before all touch ups.


Before

  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Aspirin, or Ibuprofen for 24 hours before the procedure.
  • Because Botox can alter the position of your brows, it should be performed no later than at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
  • Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products at least two weeks prior to treatment.
  • Discontinue Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to treatment.
  • Thoroughly read all the forms given to you at the time of your appointment and ask any questions you may have.
  • Be sure to advise me of any allergies, medical conditions, prior permanent eyebrow make-up and prescriptions you take prior to your appointment.


Day Of Treatment

  • With medium pressure, blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph, thus helping to prevent scabbing. Blotting is key.


Days 2-10 (Until the scabbing stops) Wash and Moisturize

  • Gently rinse your eyebrows each morning and night with water and a gentle soap (ex. Dial, baby shampoo, Cetaphil) With a light touch, use your clean fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
  • Apply a rice grain amount of Aquaphor with a cotton swap and spread it across the treated area as needed. Be sure not to over apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
  • DO NOT RUB OR PICK AT YOUR BROWS. THIS CAN CAUSE SCARRING, BLURRING, AND/OR INFECTION. SHOULD THERE BE ANY SCABBING LET THEM FALL OFF NATURALLY.
  • Aside from your daily gentle washes as noted above, do not soak your brows in water until healed (ex. bath tub, sauna, pool or hot tub) When washing your face, wash around the brow area. Showers are fine, but limit the to five minuets to prevent too much steam around the brow area.
  • Avoid facials, chemical treatments, and Botox for 4 weeks.




What is it?

Microblading is a tattoo technique used to create and enhance eyebrows. A Microblading technician uses a handheld tool with several tiny needles to deposit  semi-permanent pigment into the upper region of the dermis and create  hair strokes. This allows for a more natural brow look over traditional  cosmetic tattooing which uses a machine and more blended finish.
