Pre and Post Care

In order for your new brows to heal properly these Pre & Post Care Instructions found below are VERY IMPORTANT! Pre-Care instructions are designed to limit bleeding and skin sensitivities during the service. Excessing bleeding during the procedure can dilute the pigment color and lead to poor results. 

Pre Care

  • Do not work out 24 hours before procedure.

  • NO alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure (Yes, there is caffeine in decaf coffee and tea!).

  • Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure.

  • Avoid Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes (Shakeology, etc), “Hair, Skin, Nail” supplements 48 hours prior to procedure.

  • Discontinue Retin-A at least 4 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure).

  • Refrain from use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure).

  • Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 1 month prior to procedure for those who do not regularly receive injectables.

  • No brow waxing, tinting, or threading one week prior (the more natural hair growth you have, the better!

  • Avoid Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion or facials for 4-weeks prior procedure.

Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

Post Care

1. For 1 hr post appointment, blot your brows with a clean tissue to remove lymph. If the oozing dries on your brows, it’ll create massive scabs, and the brows will peel and flake like crazy!

2. Within a few hours post appointment, wash your brows with the aftercare soap provided in your care package. 

You're going to:
A. Wash hands
B. Get TINY bit of soap and some water OUTSIDE OF SHOWER
C. Wash gently in direction of hair. It’s a LIGHT swipe, just to help remove excess oil, oozing etc.
D. RINSE THOROUGHLY. Cup their hands with water and rinse to make sure all soap is removed.
E. Pat dry with clean paper towel
F. Apply balm (TINY AMOUNT, NOT GOOPY)

3. Wash morning and night for 10 days

4. Apply balm morning and night for 10 days (you will have enough left over for touchup) RICE GRAIN amount will cover BOTH brows. NOT rice grain on each.

5. No getting them wet other than washing OUTSIDE of shower. This includes shower, sweating, sauna, hot tub, ETC.

6. No direct sunlight for 2 weeks

7. NO MAKEUP. LOTION. FACE WASH. SERUMS. SHAMPOO. CONDITIONER Etc can touch them for two whole weeks. After that, avoid all products on them that include active ingredients (acne or anti aging products)

8. NO picking or scratching at scabs. DO NOT sleep on face!

ATTENTION PLEASE: 

I strongly advise new clients to book their Microblading appointments at least 3-4 months in advance of Vacations, Weddings, and Special Occasions. This allows adequate time for healing of both your Initial Microblading Appointment as well as a Brow Perfecting Touch-Up Session 6-8 Weeks prior. To achieve the best results possible it takes at least two sessions. Please keep this in mind when booking your appointment. I want you to have the very best healed results.
