MICROBLADING & MICROSHADING
PRE & POST TREATMENT CARE
BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT
Please follow the following guidelines before your treatment:
•Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure
• Do not tan two weeks prior or have a sunburned face
• Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to treatment
• Do not work out the day of the procedure.
• Do not have botox 3 weeks prior
• Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners)
• Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days before the procedure.
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor colour deposit:
• Do not drink alcohol 24 - 48 hours before your tattoo
• Do not consume coffee before your procedure
• Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood)
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT
Please follow these instructions for at least 5 days after the procedure to improve and prolong the results of your brows. If instructions are not followed it can greatly affect your microblading results!
• Avoid getting the area wet for up to 14 days, which includes keeping your face dry during a shower. If your eyebrows get wet during the healing process, pat them dry with a towel, DO NOT RUB.
• Avoid saunas, swimming, and excessive sweating until the area is completely healed and you have a follow-up appointment.
• Do not expose the treated area to direct sunlight. No sun-tanning or salon tanning. After healing (30 days), use sunscreen to avoid fading from the sun.
• No makeup should be applied directly on the brows during the healing process. Avoid using daily skincare products directly on the eyebrows.
• Do not touch, rub, pick or scratch your brows following treatment or during the healing process. You may find that your eyebrows will scab or become slightly dry following the treatment. If they itch, DO NOT SCRATCH them.
• Apply any medicated cream or healing balm as directed by your technician.
• To maintain results try to schedule a “touch-up” of your microbladed eyebrows at least once a year.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin please contact your cosmetic professional to discuss further instructions.
