Microblading

emily before and after

Microblading is a manual “hand” method of permanent cosmetics for your eyebrows which creates extremely fine natural looking hair strokes. Resulting in perfectly natural looking, thick, full brows. We can go bold or very natural staying with the natural shape of the brow.

I will always have you look at the shape and color BEFORE I start the treatment so we can make any adjustments needed to make you happy. The service can be a little uncomfortable for those who are more sensitive. However, there is an anesthetic applied during to keep this to a minimum to where it is completely tolerable. The procedure takes about 2 hours or less.

 

Prepping for Microblading:

  • Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure
  • Do not tan two weeks prior to the service, or have a sunburned face
  • Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure
  • Do not work out the day of the procedure
  • Do not have Botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure
  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (natural blood thinners)
  • Do not take an Aspirin or Ibuprofen for pain relief (blood thinner)
  • Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure.
  • Do not drink alcohol 24 – 48 hours before your appointment
  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure

Day of Treatment

  • Blot brows if oozing occurs. This is just lymphatic fluid trying to heal the area.
  • Spray cotton ball or cotton round with witch-hazel (provided)
  • Apply Cerave Healing Ointment (provided).

Days 1-7Cleanse

  • Gently cleanse daily with luke warm water and a gentle cleanser like baby shampoo or Cetaphil. Only use fingers to cleanse. Rinse and blot completely dry.
  • DO NOT SCRUB.
  • DO NOT use cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.
  • Blot dry

Days 1-7 Moisturize

Apply a small amount of ointment on brows with a Q-Tip. This should only be a very thin layer – not goopy. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Important Reminders

  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid face-down swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 10 days,
  • Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.
  • DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure.  Wear a hat when outdoors.
  • Avoid long (more than 5 minutes) hot showers for the first 10 days and keep your brows as dry as possible until the end of the shower.
  • Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep.
  • 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.

AFTERCARE IS CRUCIAL. The final results are reliant on proper healing.

REMEMBER:

  • During the initial healing phase, your brows may appear darker. Don’t panic! They will soften!
  • Make sure to schedule your 6 week touch up appointment.
  • It takes a full 6 weeks for the brows to completely heal and see the final result.
  • Microblading will last anywhere from 1-3 years, depending on your skin. The color will slowly fade. Touch-ups are recommended once a year if needed.
