Everyone’s skin heals differently and most clients develop patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first treatment. It is important to understand that this is a TWO part process and the second touch up treatment will complete the procedure and, after healing, you will see the finished result.
You will be given a guidance on how to care for your brows during the initial healing period, this includes:
*No Tanning Beds
*No Sweating in the gym
*No Makeup on the brow area
*No Anti Aging creams on the brow area..including retinons. AHAs, BHAs, etc.
*Do not pick scabs if any appear.
*Do not itch the brow area or pull the scabs away.
*Leave brow area alone and let them heal totally for at least 10 days.
*Avoid getting eyebrows wet or soaked in water.
Flaking happens around day three it is important not to pick or rub the scabs.
Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures. The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red & irritated. This is all 100% normal. DO NOT PICK. These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis.
Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 50% to 60%. At the touch up we will fine tune any area that has faded too much. Healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 6 months -18 months to maintain its fresh natural appearance. Fading will happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your bodies healing process. You may need to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows not a permanent one.
You will need to return for your touch up treatment no later than 4-6 weeks after the first treatment.
NOTE: If you are required to be on antibiotics prior to the procedure please bring a doctor’s note
If you bleach your eyebrows, it is recommended not to have this procedure done. The chemicals will bleach the hair & the pigment as well.
BOTOX SHOULD BE PERFORMED 3 WEEKS BEFORE OR 3 WEEKS AFTER THE PROCEDURE.
No chemical peels 60 days prior and must wait 60 days after
(Avoiding the forehead is recommended)
IF YOU DO FREQUENT PEELS, THE BROWS WILL FADE QUICKER DUE TO Retinols/Retin-A's, other anti-aging creams or serums containing acids will fade your permanent makeup prematurely EVEN AFTER IT IS HEALED.
Smoking will cause the pigment to fade prematurely
IT IS RECOMMENDED TO STAY OUT OF THE SUN 30 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT AND 30 DAYS AFTER. Plan Accordingly.
You are not a good candidate if you have very LARGE pores or Severely Oily Skin. Your results will appear softer/solid or powdered looking.
Do not take Aspirin (NSAIDS), Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
MICROBLADING WILL NOT BE PERFORMED IF YOU ARE NURSING OR PREGNANT.
You have to be off Accutane for 1 year
Avoid alcohol or caffeine the day before & prior to the procedure, this will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure.
Getting a procedure while on your menstrual cycle can make you hyper-sensitive at the procedure site.
