PRE + POST CARE

 

PRE CARE

-Avoid alcohol, caffeine, ibuprofen, aspirin, or any medication that thins your blood at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. 

-Avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or facials 4 weeks prior to your appointment. 

-Botox and fillers must be done 4 weeks prior to your appointment and no sooner than 4 weeks post procedure as these can alter the position of your brows.

-You may tint your brows up to 5 days prior to your appointment. 

-You may choose to leave your natural hairs and the artist will remove any unwanted/stray hairs after the design process.

-Avoid tanning 2 weeks prior to your appointment. If you arrive with a sunburn, your deposit will be forfeited and you will need to reschedule. 

-Discontinue use of any anti-acne or anti-aging skincare (vitamin A, Retinol, etc.) at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment. 

-Discontinue vitamin E and fish oil at least 1 week prior to your appointment. 

-Read all forms provided to you prior to and during your appointment. Do not hesitate to ask questions. 

-Inform your artist of any allergies, medical conditions, prior permanent makeup, and prescriptions prior to your appointment. 

 

POST CARE

-Immediately following your procedure and up to 3 days after, your brows will appear to be darker and more sharp than your final outcome. 

-Swelling and redness is typically minimal and should disappear within 24-48 hours. 

-Blot your brows with a clean tissue every 5-10 minutes post procedure to absorb excess lymph fluid. Continue until all oozing has stopped. 

-Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your brows. 

-Gently wash & rinse the tattooed area with lukewarm water 1-2 times a day and blot with a clean paper towel.

-In the event of excessive flaking or itching, a tiny amount of aquaphor may be applied to the brows. Do not suffocate the brows! 

-Avoid makeup and skincare products of any kind on the brows for at least 2 weeks and until all flaking has stopped. 

-Avoid swimming, hot tubs, saunas, steamy showers, excessive sweating, etc. for at least 2 weeks and until all flaking has stopped.

-Keep your face away from the shower head when showering.

-Avoid sleeping on your stomach or sides while healing. 

-Do not scratch or pick your brows as this can cause scarring, blurring, color loss, or infection. Doing so will compromise the outcome of your new brows. In the case of itching during healing, pat them! 

-Avoid the sun by wearing a hat. Sunscreen must not be applied until the healing process is complete.

 

ONCE HEALED

-The tattooed area must be kept free of glycolic acid, Retin A, chemical peels and exfoliating products as use of these may lighten the pigment.

-Sunscreen must be worn to avoid excess fading or discoloration of the pigment.

-Laser procedures such as hair removal or resurfacing may alter the pigment. Please inform your technician of your microbladed brows prior to any laser procedure.
