Before Your Appointment

We aim for perfection but everyone's skin is different and will react differently to the procedure. Some skin will heal faster than others, some skin will retain the pigment longer, all skin is aging, some of us will be harder on our skin than others; swimming, tanning and weather all have a negative effect on our skin. And, this is a big AND, nobody's eyebrows are exactly the same. Our goal is to make them match as closely as possible but nature does play a role in the contour of our brows. We recommend following this list the best you can before the procedure in order to have a quick and easy healing process.

Please do not do the following:

  • Perform electrolysis one week before the procedure
  • Tan two weeks before the procedure
  • You will not be able to get microbladed if you have a sunburned face
  • Have any type of facial two weeks prior to the procedure
  • Exercise the day of the procedure
  • Receive botox three weeks prior to the procedure
  • Take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners)
  • Pick, tweeze, wax or tint your eyebrows three days prior to the procedure.

In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit, please do not do the following:

  • Drink alcohol 24 - 48 hours before your tattoo
  • Consume caffeinated beverages (coffee, tea, etc.) or take Aspirin or Ibuprofen for pain relief before your procedure

After Care

  • For the first day every hour after the procedure wipe very gently with a cotton pad dipped in distilled water and then apply a dab of Bepanthen cream (a very thin layer) to the brow. From day 2 through day 10 dab a very thin layer of cream once a day (do not use the distilled water after the first day). Never rush the healing process. Do Not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it is ready the pigment underneath it can be pulled out.
  • Do Not get the brows wet (the expection is wiping with the distilled water the first day) during the healing process for 14 days.
  • Only put the distilled water and cream (no water, make-up, lotions, etc.) as described above on the brows for 14 days or until healed.
  • No sweating for 14 days - this is a hard one, but body heat expands the pores. Sweat has salt and will prematurely fade, blur or cause the pigment not to take at all.
  • Stay out of the sun for two weeks. Then be sure to use sunblock on the healed brow to prevent fading.
  • Do Not use any Retin-A or Glycolic Acids in the brow area during or after healing.
  • Do Not use a tanning bed for a month...preferably, never!
  • It is recommended that you apply Vaseline to treated areas prior to swimming even after healed to prevent chlorine water/salt water from penetrating the area.
  • Only touch the treated areas with squeaky-clean hands during the healing process.
  • Try not to sleep on your face for the first 10 days.

Note: Eyebrows will appear darker and bolder due to natural scabbing and healing for the first 10 days. We want you to be thrilled with the results for the months ahead, so follow the instructions! Failure to follow after-care instructions may result in infections, pigment loss or discoloration. We recommend yearly touch-ups.
