BROW CARE

*Please read through both pre and post care instructions to be prepared for your appointment and to have the best results possible.

PRE CARE

No blood thinning medications or supplements such as: Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, Vitamin E, Niacin at least 24 hours before appointment.

No fish oil supplements 2 weeks before procedure.

No caffeine (including coffee) or alcohol 24 hours before your appointment (thins blood and can result in more scabbing and fading).

No Botox around brow area 2 weeks before procedure.

* No waxing, facial peels, or Retin-A one week prior to procedure.

*Do Not workout day of procedure.

Microblading is not recommended: 

if you are pregnant or nursing, have heart problems, diabetes, skin irritations on the face, hepatitis, HIV or AIDS, sick(cold/flu), smoke.

*Note

you may be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

POST CARE

*Please understand that each person is different and each healing experience will be different.  Skin type, body chemistry (hormonal/health), lifestyle, and post care are all factors in the end result and are out of my control.  I cannot guarantee how much pigment your eyebrows will retain or when you will need another touch-up.

‚Äč

* Be prepared for your brows to heal anywhere from 10 days-2 weeks.  

* NO water, face cleansers, or makeup on brows until all peeling/ flaking is completely gone.

You will be given a healing moisturizer at your initial appointment to apply during healing.

* NO excessive sweating, or submerging brows under water until all peeling/ flaking is completely gone.

* DO NOT rub, pick or scratch treated area.  Let all flaking or scabbing exfoliate of on it's own, (can cause              scarring or loss of pigment).

* Avoid direct exposure to UV rays on brows for up to 3-4 weeks post procedure.

* Avoid sleeping on face until fully healed.

* Avoid touching brows during healing unless applying moisturizer (sanitize hands before applying).

* If you accidentally get brows wet, gently blot dry with clean towel.

WHAT YOU MAY EXPERIENCE DURING HEALING

- redness or swelling for first 24-48 hours. 

it may feel like you have a sunburn for the first 24-48 hours.

- after a few days brows may become itchy and dry. DO NOT SCRATCH.

   brows will begin to peel or flake. 

- you may see tiny micro-strokes coming off as brows peel. This is completely normal.

- as peeling occurs brows may begin to look patchy.

- once brows have completely shed they may look uneven in color. This can be alarming and discouraging.

- color will begin to come back over the next few weeks as your skin is still repairing. 

- pigment will soften around 30-50% after shedding.

- there may be areas of the brow that the pigment did not retain on the first session.  This is a 2 part service and         anything that did not retain will be touched-up at your appointment in 6-8 weeks.

TIPS TO PROLONG PIGMENT

- Keep brows protected from harsh UV rays (sun, tanning bed). If brows are not protected they will          fade faster.

- Avoid: harsh skin care products on brows, Retin-A, peels, exfoliants, waxing, heavy oils, skin lightening      or brightening agents. These can fade or warp pigment.
