PRE + POST-CARE

PRE-PROCEDURE

  • Try to avoid caffeinated beverages prior to your appointment, trust us, we know, its hard!

  • Avoid tanning or sunbathing three days before your appointment

  • No chemical peels or harsh exfoliating treatments for at least a week before your appointment

  • Avoid using Retin-A/Retinoids/Retinols, Filler, and Botox for one week before the procedure

  • Avoid taking fish oil, Vitamin E, Aspirin, and other blood thinners for at least one week before the procedure

  • Get your workout in! Getting sweaty before your appointment will give you peace of mind since you can’t sweat for 7-10 days after you get your new brows!

AFTER-CARE

  • There is no one-size-fits all with the healing process as each client heals in their own unique way. In general, microblading takes about 7-10 days to heal before it can get completely wet without disturbing the healing process. This includes: heavy exercise, sweating, showering, and swimming. Here is a timeline for some of the most common experiences clients have post-microblading include:

  • Immediately: You may feel some tenderness in the eyebrow area, similar to that of a sunburn. You may also experience redness around the eyebrow area and possible swelling.

  • Days 1-2: There will be a significant thickening and darkening of the eyebrow area. They will look much more defined and sharp. This is completely normal and will subside.

  • Day 3: You may experience moderate to thick scabbing. Your eyebrows will start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture.

  • Day 4: Exfoliation begins and any excess pigment from the procedure will fade away. The skin begins to flake and will peel from the outside edges first.

  • Day 5: The pigment will finish flaking off and will result in a softer, gray, and more narrow appearance. It will stay like this for a few days until the pigment clarifies.

    HAIRY ADVICE

  • Blot your eyebrows if they get weepy within 24 hours post-procedure

  • Keep brows dry for 10 days

  • Apply a light coating of Aquaphor on your eyebrows once a day for 10 days with a clean cotton swab.

  • Apply Aquaphor especially before you shower or wash your face, as it acts as a barrier for your brows.

  • Avoid the sun, sweating, hot sauna, and outside running for 10 days

  • Once the eyebrow area has fully healed, between 4-8 weeks post-appointment, a touch-up is necessary to secure the foundation of the pigment.
