Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my service or after?
ALL CLIENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BEFORE AND AFTER CARE. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
There is two step for this process so you will need to return for a touch up after in 4-6 weeks. Please schedule your touch up on the day of your first appointment.
• Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energizing drinks on the day of treatment.
• Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before treatment.
• Do not take omega3 (fish oil) 1 week before treatment.
• Do not tan or have intense sun exposure 3 days before treatment.
• No waxing 2-3 days before treatment.
• No chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser or any other intense treatments 2 weeks before treatment.
• Shower and fix your hair as you need to take extra care not to get your brows wet for several days.
What can I expect during my service?
Before the appointment begins, I will provide a quick consultation to discuss expectations and results of the treatment.
Then we draw on the eyebrow shape with a measuring tool. Brows are measured perfectly to complement your unique face shape and size.
Next we choose the perfect pigment color.
Initial strokes are placed, then anesthetic is applied to reduce any discomfort.
Pigment is worked into each stroke to define the brow..
Once that's finished, I clean the area thoroughly.

Microblading Aftercare Instructions
It is essential that you follow these instructions after your microblading session:
Day One (day of treatment): After 24 hours, wash gently using only fingertips with lukewarm water and mild (unscented) soap.
Day One (day of treatment): You must rinse your eyebrows with clean water on every hour after the microblading procedure, followed by the post-care cream. Aquaphor is recommended, and is available in the skin care section of any drug store. Apply the post-care cream with a cotton swab, and use non aggressive movements and/or manipulation of the skin. Wash your hands with a disinfectant soap before washing your eyebrows and/or applying the post-care cream.
Day two-day nine: Either leave dry (recommended for oily skin) or apply the post-care cream (Aquaphor, grapeseed oil, or Hustle Butter) with a cotton swab without using aggressive movement and/or manipulation of the skin. Wash your hands with a disinfectant soap prior to washing your eyebrows and/or applying the post care cream.
The following must be avoided during all 7 days post-microblading procedure:
Increased sweating. It is recommended not to sweat (heavily) for the first 7 days after the procedure. Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area.
Hot Sauna, Hot baths, or Jacuzzi
Sun tanning or salon tanning. Absolutely no sun, sweating, or tanning prior to the procedure or after the procedure for 10 days. Do not have a tan/sunburn on your face prior to the procedure. The tan will exfoliate taking color with it as it fades.
Any laser, chemical treatments, facial peel, and/or 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
Performing tasks related to heaving household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
Drinking alcohol to 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
Before showering, apply a layer of post-care cream to protect your eyebrows from moisture. During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead.
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.
The healing of deeper wounds might last between 14-21 days. Touch-ups and/or correction of the shape-design is recommended only after this period.
Your eyebrows will fade about 40% and you will need to return for your touch up in 4-6 weeks after the first treatment.
After that you will need touch up between 12-18 months depending on the skin.
NOTE: THIS IS AN ART NOT A SCIENCE, EVERYONE HEALS DIFFERENT SO RESULTS MAY VARY.
NOTE: If you are required to be on antibiotics prior to the procedure please bring a doctors note
