MICROBLADING \ SHADING OMBRE

     PRE CARE

  • We prefer that you don't pluck or wax brows before coming in, so that we can see where your natural brows grow, that way we can shape your brows from scratch.  The fuller brows are better for microblading as we'll have more to work with.

  • NO alcohol or caffeine 24 hours prior to your microblading procedure (these are natural blood thinners and will make you bleed excessively during the procedure)

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before your procedure - Tylenol is OK.

  • Do not use Botox in the forehead and eye area 3 weeks before your microblading procedure

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E supplements 1 week prior (natural blood thinners)

  • Do not tint, thread, tweeze or wax your eyebrows 4 days before the procedure (we prefer if you have not cleaned them up)

  • Do not work out the day of the procedure

  • Do not tan 2 weeks prior 

  • Do not have any type of facial/peel or electrolysis 1 week prior to treatment

  • Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products 2 weeks prior to treatment

  • Discontinue prescription Retin-A products 3 weeks prior to your procedure - always avoid application onto the brow area

  • Avoid use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your procedure

  • Avoid Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion or other invasive facials 3 weeks prior to procedure

  • Please note; Your skin will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

  • Please take in account that this procedure will take about 2- 3 hours depending on your brows and their existing condition. Due to the nature of this service we kindly ask that you arrive unaccompanied to your scheduled appointment. Please leave friends, boyfriends/husbands, children and pets at home.

Days 1-3 the Brows will look very bold, then they begin to scab.  Do not pick or pull the scabs.  Once the new skin has formed, the brows will look lighter, and as they continue healing you will see them begin to appear darker again.  You should expect 20-40% of fading overall during the healing process.  This up and down process is normal right after the initial procedure and some of the brow strokes may disappear and come back.  This is why the Touch-up appointment is important after 6 weeks so we can re-examine how your brows healed and we can reinforce the areas which require more pigment and balance out the brows for that perfected look.

​​Microblading or Shading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure.

1-7 days after the procedure, make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment or Aquaphor with clean hands.  This can be done once AM & PM but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself.  Please continue to apply the ointment for 7 days. Do not touch and get them wet for 7 days. Avoid eyebrow area directly with water when taking a shower. Apply thin Aquaphor before taking a shower.

Sleeping on your face should also be avoided for the first week.

Do not pick at your scabs and avoid tanning for the first 3-4 weeks.

The following must be avoided during the 14 days post-microblading/shading procedure:

  • Increased sweating

  • Practicing sports

  • Swimming

  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning (avoid first 3-4 weeks)

  • UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment (avoid first 3-4 weeks)

  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris

  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds

  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab

 

Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.  During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.

Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure.  However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact us.

 

 

PERMANENT EYELINER

      AfterCare

  • Using a fresh Q-Tip, apply a light coat of Vaseline to the tattooed area twice a day. Keeping the area moist during the first 5-7 days will help the tattooed area hold color and heal evenly. It is normal for the pigment to fade up to 50% within the first month, this is why the touch-up is required.

  • Do not touch the area with your fingers. This increases your risk of infection.

  • If you should experience swelling, an ice pack may be applied using a thin protective barrier such as a paper towel. Icing is most effective in the first 24 hours following the procedure. Sleeping with your head slightly elevated can also reduce any residual swelling.

  • Do not apply makeup or mascara on or near the tattooed area for 7 days. Purchase new makeup or mascara to avoid contamination or bacterial infection.

  • Do not scrub or pick at the tattooed area. Doing so can cause the pigment underneath to be pulled out. Allow the epithelial skin to flake off by itself. 

  • Do not use makeup remover or creams and avoid pools and hot tubs for two weeks.

  • With freshly washed hands, you may gently cleanse the eye area with warm water. Avoid cleansers, soap and washcloths.

  • Do not wear contact lenses for 48-72 hours following the procedure. If possible, use a new pair. 

  • Sunglasses are recommended to protect the eyes when outside.

  • Please notify us immediately should you experience any of the following symptoms: redness in or around the eye, matting or drainage, pain that becomes increasingly worse, difficulty keeping your eyes open, sensitivity to light.
