PLEASE NOTE:

If you have oily, thick, or tough skin, your results from microblading will appear softer and can require additional touch-ups. Eyebrows will look more "powdered" and may look solid. Ombre or powder brows would be a better fit for you!


Dark skin types, please note that your permanent makeup will not appear as bold or crisp as lighter skin.


It is worth noting that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle so you may want to schedule your appointment accordingly.


If you would like, you may come to your appointment with your brows penciled in as you like them and bring the product that you used.

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO WHICH AFTERCARE I TOLD YOU TO FOLLOW

AFTER CARE

DRY HEAL AFTERCARE -- MICROBLADING


  • Avoid direct contact with water on the treated area for 10 DAYS. 
  • Avoid direct contact with water on the treated area for 10 DAYS.

MOIST HEAL AFTER CARE -- OMBRE & POWDER BROWS, EYELINER

 

  • First and foremost, make sure your hands are squeaky clean before ever touching the treated area.
  • For the first few hours following your appointment, you may experience some weeping of lymph fluid in the procedure site. This is normal and your body’s first steps in the healing process. If lymph fluid appears over the treatment area, gently blot with a clean tissue to remove.

What To Expect After The Procedure

  • Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures. Some clients may have no swelling, some may have a lot. Reaction and healing is very different from one client to the next.
  • Dry skin, itching, and tenderness are all very common and normal especially within the first 5-7 days following the procedure. These symptoms will dissipate each day and will vary on an individual basis.
  • You can expect the color to fade and soften 30-50% once healed. The touch-up will enhance any areas that have faded too much. Healing and color retention is specific to each client and their skin type.
  • You will receive one included follow-up (~ 8 weeks after the initial appointment) to achieve the best result that we are both pleased with. Some clients may desire or need an additional touch-up which will be subject to an additional fee. 
  • It is important to understand that you will need a color boost every 1-3 years to maintain a fresh, natural-looking appearance.
  • If you are out in the sun a lot, use anti-aging products, oily skin creams, chemical peels, or sweat frequently, you will likely need a color boost every 6 months to 1 year.
  • The better you take care of the treated area, the longer it will last. 

General healing timeline:
Please remember that each person heals at a different rate from the next. This is just a general guideline so you have an idea of what to expect.

  • Day 1-2 Your eyebrows will be approximately 20% darker and bolder looking than they will be when healed. Your skin may be red around the pigment which may make the pigment look darker. There may be some swelling in the area -- this will subside. Don't be concerned if your eyebrows initially appear darker and larger than what you desire, they will change many times throughout the healing process.
  • Day 3 Your eyebrows will begin to itch and will appear thicker. Natural exfoliation will begin which will cause excess pigment surrounding the procedure area to flake off. Do not pick, peel, rub, or otherwise exfoliate yourself. Let the flaking slough off naturally.
  • Day 4-5 More flaking and the edges of the strokes will look softer and may even appear to lose some pigment. Do not be concerned with this. As the skin heals, new skin will heal over the pigmented area which will diffuse the stroke lines and color. As the layers of the skin regenerate from the inside out, the pigment will resurface and the strokes will clarify after about 8 weeks.



IF AT ANY TIME FOLLOWING THE PROCEDURE YOU HAVE EXCESSIVE SWELLING, REDNESS, ITCHING, AND PAIN OR OTHER SIGNS OF INFECTION OR ALLERGIC REACTION AROUND THE PROCEDURE SITE, CONTACT YOUR PHYSICIAN.
