FAQ'S & CARE TIPS

 

What are the pre and post care procedures?

In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow the pre and post care instructions.

Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following:

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours.  

  • Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone.

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior.

  • Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so our technician can see your everyday look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows according to your face shape, skin type, and measurements.

After your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions:

  • Within 2 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed boiling water. Gently wipe away the old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up. Lightly pat dry with tissue and using a new q-tip, re-apply healing balm to the brows.

  • Make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to brows for at least 5-7 days.

  • Do not over apply healing balm.

  • Do not immerse brow area in water for 14 days.

  • When showering, make sure to avoid face area. Do not scrub or rub the area.

  • When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it.      

  • Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours.    

  • Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation.

  • Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days.    

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after.

 

Who is not suitable for the procedure?

Microblading is not suitable for the following candidates:

  • Using Accutane

  • Must be 18 years of age or over

  • Have heart conditions or using heart medications

  • Have diabetes (will require a physician's note)

  • Have skin disease or irritations

  • Have had Botox in the last 2 weeks

  • Have gotten a deep tan or chemical peels in the last 2 weeks

  • Allergic to lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine or epinephrine

  • Anyone who has any serious medical conditions may require a physician's note.

  • Pregnant or nursing clients who want to microblade can be done at your own discretion. We suggest discussing with your doctor first. Microblading is still considered a tattoo, and just like with wine or sushi consumption, it is a personal choice to do so during this period.

* We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who we deem not suitable for this procedure or for any other reason. Our brow technicians make the decision to microblade an individual based on their own discretion. *
