BEFORE & AFTER care
Before and after care are one of the most important factors in the microblading procedure! It is important that you take your after care instructions very seriously. Although, skin type, age, skin healing, etc., are major factors in your healed results, aftercare will help tremendously.
It is very important to refrain from all alcohol, aspirin, or aspirin products, such as blood thinners.
Please also refrain from Ibuprofen and Alieve for 24 hours prior to your appointment.
Also refrain from Vitamin E and fish oil capsules for 7 days prior to your application.
***ALL of these make you bleed excessively. Excessive bleeding during the procedure will negatively affect the longevity of your semi-permanent makeup application. In some cases, the application will need to be prematurely stopped.
The ONLY product for aches and pain that are ok is Tylenol.
Please avoid energy drinks & coffee for up to 24 hours prior to your appointment. Not having caffeine in your system will help you to relax much more easily, as well as help to relax the facial muscles in the areas we will be working on.
DAY 1: Please wash hands with antibacterial soap before you wash your eyebrows. Then wash your eyebrows EVERY HOUR very well with a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water! Pat dry with a tissue than apply a very thin layer of the Skin Candy or other antibacterial skin ointment.
DAY 2-7: Keep eyebrows lightly glossed with the ointment 3-4 times a day for the next 7 days. Do not over use ointment. Only apply a very thin layer. Do not suffocate your eyebrows.
Do not use any Retin-A, Glycolic Acids, Peroxide, Neosporin while healing.
Do not scrub or pick your eyebrows.
Do not expose area to sun or tanning beds! Must use hat if in the sun.
Avoid any facials ,swimming, whirlpools or sauna for 7 days.
Do not exercise the first 3-5 days. No heavy sweating !
No make-up on the eyebrows!
Do not tint eyebrows for the next 10 days.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN LOSS OF PIGMENT.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER MICROBLADING OR EYEBROW SHADING PROCEDURES:
*Slight swelling, thickness, and/or redness for one or two days following the procedure.
*It is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the color during the healing process.
*After the initial procedure, the color may be a shade too dark; in six days it will appear too light and after 10 days the color will show more.
*It will appear softer when completely healed because the color will come from the dermal layer of the skin to the epidermal layer of the skin.
*Please be patient. Healing takes up to 30 days. In your next appointment more hairs can be added and adjustments made.
The brows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in the width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a narrower appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size then you desire. This is all part of the healing process.
