Due to microblading being a form of semi-permanent tattooing, you must allow 6-8 weeks for full healing. Therefore, ensure that you book your procedure with all special events/vacations in mind.
Avoid booking your appointment during your menstrual cycle or be prepared to experience increased sensitivity.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT:
*Blood thinners will increase bleeding during the procedure. If blood is coming out, pigment can not go in and therefore, your healed results will be jeopardized.
If you have any other concerns or questions, please ask me directly. It’s safer to ask than to assume.
The pre-care for brows and liner is very similar as they both involve cutting the skin and implanting pigment. So all pre-care above that has to do with bleeding, applies to the pre-care for a lash line enhancement.
Some additional instructions to note are:
The healing process for lash line is much easier, and faster.
Redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the feeling similar to a light sunburn. Tylenol, not aspirin nor ibuprofen, may be used if necessary.
First 7 days: No water on the brows). Wash your face with a cloth or wipes and lean your hair back into a bath or shower when washing. Absolutely no sweating (this will remove the pigment).
Day 8: You can start washing you face and hair normally again.
First 2 weeks: No massages, facials, saunas, steaming, or anything that may disturb the scabs.
First 3 weeks: No direct hot sun / sun tanning (the sun will cause pigment to grey or fade - sunscreen mandatory)
First month: Refrain from tanning, chemical peels, lasers, etc, (anything harsh on the skin).
Do not pick the scabs! Doing so will remove pigment!
Highly recommend using SPF on your brows when outside to keep them looking fresh for longer and prevent color fading/changing.
Day 1 - 5: Brows will appear darker and thicker. Scabbing forms over the strokes to protect the area while healing. It is important not to pick the scabs as this will result in lost pigment.
Day 5 - 9: As the scabs start falling off, brows may appear patchy, flaky, and feel itchy.
Day 9 - 12: The pigment color under may look light or milky. This is completely normal.
Day 12 - 21: The pigment will reappear and strokes in the brows will darken.
Any strokes that did not "re-appear" during this process will be added back at the touch up appointment 6 weeks later.
At the touch up appointment, we can make the brows darker, fill in any missing gaps, or go slightly thicker but an entirely new brow shape will be considered a full appointment.
I will go over everything in this document with you at your appointment but please read it in advance so there are no surprises.
