The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated.  Here's how to get your skin ready for the procedure:

• Do not pick /tweeze /wax /tint /perform laser or electrolysis at least one week before your procedure.

• Avoid tanning / sunburned face /any type of facial/ chemical peel/microdermabrasion for 2 weeks.

• Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol for one month prior to treatment.

• Do not have any Botox done for 3 weeks prior to treatment.

• Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior, since these are natural blood thinners.

• Do not work out/overexert yourself the day of the procedure.

• 24 hours prior: Do not drink alcohol, consume coffee or take aspirin or ibuprofen before your tattoo. (thins your blood)

DO/CAN: Before you come in for your appointment:

  • Do take Tylenol or a stronger pain reliever to help with the pain
  • You can take a anxiety/calming medication to help relax you
  • You can use the CBD treatments to help you also to help relax you 
  • Do talk with your doctor about taking antibiotics before if you have had to in the past before any other type of medical/dental procedure. 
  • You can always ask your doctor to prescribe you a numbing medication to be applied after you arrive for your appointment. 

AFTERCARE

Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results with your microblading procedure.

The day of the treatment:

Absorb

After the procedure, gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until the oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids.


Days 1-7: Wash

I always recommend washing in the morning and at night using the method with the Q-tips that I show you at the end of your procedure. Wash at least daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don't worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT AS LONG AS YOU DO AS INSTRUCTED!)

Always do the double cleanse. The first cleanse will remove the day's dirt, grim, oil, and so forth. The second cleanse will actually cleanse the skin. 

Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. I usually recommend Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser. Get a small cup (medicine cup is great), pump one squirt of Cetaphil in and fill the rest with warm water and mix. Take a Q-tip and dip both ends to soak up the soapy water. Take one side swipe across left brow while rotating around the area. Then with the other side take and repeat the process on the right brow. Now grab another Q-tip soak ends with warm water. Then take one end of the Q-tip and swipe across the soapy left brow and remove soap. With the other end of the Q-tip, repeat same process. Next, (repeating the soapy process) take a Q-tip and dip both ends to soak up the soapy water. Take one side swipe across left brow while rotating around the area. Then with the other side take and repeat the process on the right brow. Now(repeating the rinse process) grab another Q-tip soak ends with warm water. Then take one end of the Q-tip and swipe across the soapy left brow and remove soap. With the other end of the Q-tip, repeat same process. Last take a clean paper towel and with a very light touch place over your brow to help absorbs moisture. Let air dry for about 10-20 minutes.  , use your Q-tips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. 


** DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.**


Days 1-7 Moisturize

Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a Q-tip and spread it across the treated area. Using the separate ends for each brow. NO CROSS CONTAMINATION!!  Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Important Reminders

  • Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep.
  • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. 
  • Picking can cause scarring or loss of color.
  • No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors.
  • Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid face-down swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 10 days,
  • Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.
  • DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.

 Important note about showering:

Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
