Prep & Aftercare

PREPARATION

  • Do not tint your eyebrows 3 days before procedure

  • Do not thread/tweeze/wax/or perform electrolysis one week before procedure

  • Do not tan 2 weeks prior or have a sunburned face

  • Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to treatment

  • Do not exercise the day of the procedure

  • Do not have Botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E 1 week prior to procedure (natural blood thinners)

IN ORDER TO AVOID EXCESSIVE BLEEDING AND POOR COLOUR DEPOSIT

  • Do not drink alcohol 24-48 hours before your appointment

  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure

  • Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief  (this thins the blood)

 

TREATMENT DAY

Gently dab the area with a clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.

DAYS 1-7

Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil or Neutrogena. Lightly use your finger tips to to gently cleanse your eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all the soap has washed away. To dry gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing product containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any to exfoliate.

 

MOISTURIZING

Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. 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 pillow case

  • 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 1 week

  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors

  • Avoid heavy sweating and long hot showers for the first 10 days

  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days

  • Avoid swimming, lakes, hot tubs for the first 10 days

  • Avoid topical makeup including sunscreen on the area

  • Avoid picking rubbing or scratching the treated area

Remember, with a proper prep and aftercare routine you will have much better results with your Microblading procedure. Please make sure to book your follow up visit in 4-6 weeks to complete your procedure.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHOWERING

Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/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 at the very end of your shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
