MICROBLADING FAQ

 

Before Treatment

  •  Complete any eyebrow waxing 1 week prior to treatment.
  • Avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasion or intensive skin treatments 2-3 weeks prior.
  • Wash hair prior to appointment, as you cannot come in contact with water for 7 days.
  • Avoid sun, sweating, or tanning prior to the procedure and after the procedure for 10 days. Do not have a tan/sunburn on your face prior to your procedure. The tan will exfoliate, taking color with it as it fades.
  • Do not work out the day of the procedure, as body heat expands the pores.
  •  Do NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
  • Botulinum Injections should be performed 4 weeks PRIOR to your scheduled procedure OR 4 weeks AFTER your procedure.
  • You MUST be off Retin-A or Retinols for 7 days prior to your appointment and avoid using on or around the area for 30 days after. If used before 30 days, it can cause the pigments to fade prematurely.
  • Avoid alcohol or caffeine prior to the procedure, this will minimize any oozing or swelling after the procedure.
 

After Treatment Care

  •  It is recommended not to sweat (heavily) for the first 10 days after the procedure. Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area.
  • Avoid direct shower water on the treated area after the procedure. Apply Vaseline prior to showering to prevent soaps and shampoos from getting on the treated area. Absolutely NOTHING on the treated area for 7 days. After the 7 days, use a gentle cleanser to clean them. Avoid scrubbing the treated area for 1 month.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face during the 1st 10 days after the procedure. If you resume the Retin-A or Retinols after the 30 days, please know that the continued use will fade your permanent makeup prematurely.
  • Avoid swimming until the area is completely healed, salt water/chlorine can cause the pigments to fade or change in color. It is recommended to apply the Vaseline to the treated area(s) prior to swimming even after healed to prevent the chlorine water/salt water from penetrating the area.
  • Only touch the treated areas with clean hands. Apply Vaseline with a Q-tip.  This prevents infection.
  • DO NOT RUB, SCRATCH OR PICK AT THE TREATED AREA. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
  • No cosmetics on treated area for 2 weeks.
  • Plan on scheduling your touch-up within 3-6 weeks after initial treatment.
  • Experiencing itching: use Bactine, it also disinfects.
  • Experiencing excessive dryness: after 4th day since procedure use small amount of Coconut oil , residue shouldn’t be show.
  • No sunbathing, sauna, swimming, for at least 2 weeks.
