Are you a candidate for permanent makeup ?

For your health and safety, if any of the below apply to you, you are not a candidate for permanent makeup/microblading.

Please do not try permanent makeup if you are:

  • Pregnant or nursing

  • Diabetic 

  • Undergoing chemotherapy (please consult your doctor)

  • Have skin diseases (unless cleared by your physician)

  • Currently sick (cold, flu, etc.)

  • Have any viral infections and/or diseases

  • Ever had an organ transplant

  • On immune system depressants

  • Have skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)

  • Within two months after Botox treatment (after 2 months is allowed)

  • Use of Accutane, Isoltretinoin, or other retinoids (after 6 months is allowed)

  • Have a pacemaker (A manual method can be used, but any machine use is not allowed)

  • Very sensitive and have low pain intolerant (Sometimes patients can't take in the numbing cream)

  • Sunburn or frostbitten (allowed after symptoms are gone)

  • Seborrhea Dermatitis

  • Excessive sebum, oily skin (unless you're doing Ombre Brows)

  • Problem skin, broken capillaries

  • Acne

  • Moles

  • Keratosis

  • Very dry or peeling skin

Before the Treatment

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before.

  • Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks on the day of treatment.

  • If you wish to tint your brows, do it one day prior to treatment

  • Do not tan or sunbathe 3 days before treatment. The tan will exfoliate, taking color with it as it fades.

  • No waxing! If you tint or wax your eyebrows, you must complete those treatments at least 3 days before the microblading treatment.

  • No chemical peels, dermabrasion, mesotherapy or any other intense treatments. This will cause skin cells to rejuvenate faster which will result in skin irritation. We recommend any of these to be done 2-3 weeks before microblading.

  • Please fix and/or wash your hair before the treatment. You will not be able to have direct contact with water on the area for 7 days.

  • Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

 

The Day of Treatment

  • Please arrive least 10 minutes before your appointment. Late arrival will not be accepted.

  • If late, please call us. It can lead to your treatment being postponed to another day.

  • We clean your brow area with sterile, hygienic pads and draw the brow form onto your skin.

  • A photo will be taken, often times a photo will show defects or issues that may need to be addressed.

  • We use a sterile microblading tool and disposable blade during your procedure!

  • We use EU Regulated Permanent Makeup, high quality pigments, specially manufactured for microblading.

 
  • Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin.

  • ● Gently wash your eyebrows each morning or at night with cold water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena.

  • ● With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows in one direction.

  • ● Rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean towel.

  • ● DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.

  • ● Then apply a rice grain amount of the aftercare lotion I gave you with a clean cotton swab and spread it across the treated area.

  • ● DO NOT over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin.

  • ● NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo. Re-apply the ointment/lotion as needed 2-3x a day or whenever your brows feel dry.

  • ● Repeat this process each day for 7 days then you can go back to normal routine after

AFTER CARE FOR BROW TATTOO

 

• If you keep your brows clean and dry, only a thin film (not a scab) will appear after 4-7 days. It will peel off itself in 7-10 days (do NOT peel it off). After the film peels off you can still feel some dryness, in this case clean or disinfect the area with a small amount of coconut or grape seed oil. Be careful with any cleaning in the affected area. The full healing period is 28-45 days.

• If there is any contact with water, sebum or sweat, the wound will expand and cause a scab. The scab will result in itching and peeling of the pigment. If you scratch the scab, a scar or white spot can appear and no pigment will be left.

• Needing a touch up months or years later. ​A touch up may be needed 3 months, 6 months or just before you hit your year mark, depending on your skin, medications and sun exposure. We recommend the touch-up 30-45 days after the first session (included in today’s price) and every 3 months, 6 months, or a year to keep them looking fresh and beautiful. There will be a charge for any touch up sessions after 60 days.

 

**Failure to follow after care instructions may result in infections, pigment loss or discoloration. Everyone’s skin heals differently. It is important to remember that this is a two-part process and the second touch-up will complete the procedure. The touch-up is recommended after 45 days. Not everyone, but some people will need a touch-up to fill in missing hairs, make hairs longer or achieve a more intensive color. After you have fully healed, you will see the finished result. Please be patient and don’t panic.

What’s normal?

-Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing and dry tightness are normal​. These symptoms will fade after a few days. -Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. ​After 3 to 7 days the darkness will fade. Also, once swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If the pigment is too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during your touch up appointment. -Color change or color loss. ​As the procedure area heals the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear. This can all be addressed during the touch up appointment and is why the touch up is necessary. The procedure area has to be completely healed before we can address any concerns. This takes about four weeks.
