HERE’S HOW TO GET THE PERFECT BROWS
To achieve the brows of your dreams takes commitment on your end. You will get the absolute best results by prepping for the appointment and following after care instructions given by your artist. The goal is to have healthy, non-sensitive, non-irritated skin so that the brows can heal gracefully!
“Pre-Care is important to get the skin at optimal condition for color deposit and prevention of excessive bleeding”
1 YEAR BEFORE:
- No Accutane (your skin needs to thicken up before we can perform pmu services)
1 MONTH BEFORE:
- No Isoltretinoin, or other retinoids (these treatments can cause the skin to be thinner, which can make it unsafe to blade)
- No Botox or any fillers at least 4 weeks prior (can disturb the shape)
2 WEEKS BEFORE:
- No Intense Facial treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, mesotherapy. This will cause skin cells to rejuvenate faster resulting in skin irritation. Please schedule these treatments 2-3 weeks before scheduling microblade session
- No Tanning (bed and natural sun exposure)
1 WEEK BEFORE:
- No Waxing, Tinting or Electrolysis
24 HOURS BEFORE:
- No Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen
- No Caffeine (Coffee, Energy Drinks, Tea too!)
- No Alcohol
- No Vitamin E or Fish Oil Supplements
- No Excessive Sweating or Working Out
- Shower day of before session or night before
“After care is the last piece in treatment success. Please make sure to follow given advice. Failure to follow can risk losing up to 80% of the drawn strokes. Don’t let your experience go to waste! “
IMMEDIATELY AFTER SESSION:
You will be provided an aftercare pack to take home and help guide you in a successful healing process. Please follow instructions and use products as needed for your 10-14 day healing process. Healing may vary for everyone but 10 days minimum is recommended for best results. Any questions, please reach out.
DAY AFTER TILL ABOUT 8 DAYS AFTER:
You brows will darken by up to 50% until the scabbing dissipates approximately in 7 or 8 days. Don’t be alarmed, this is completely normal.
APPROXIMATELY 10 TO 14 DAYS AFTER:
The color may also lighten by around day 10 which you may think they have disappeared completely or in pockets. Trust the process! Our skin has a tendency to create a clear layer of skin as it is healing and your new skin will prevent the strokes from being visible. Please be assured that as your skin cells naturally regenerate, the color will come back around the 3 weeks mark and continue to clarify throughout the first 6-8 weeks. Be patient and kind to your skin as it does its job during this important phase!
This is why we ask that you come back for your touch-up around 6-10 weeks after initial session
>>>IMPORTANT REMINDERS… UNTIL WE SEE YOU FOR YOUR TOUCH-UP!
Light pat brows with baby wipe to freshen brows everyday, day and night.
Apply a thin layer of aftercare ointment
Oily Skin 1-2 times a day for first 3 days and use it only if you feel tight or itchy for remainder of time
Dry to Normal Skin: 2 times a day and more if feeling extra tight for first 3 days and use it only if you feel tight or itchy for remainder of time
Apply in patting motion, don’t rub or massage in circular motion as this can aggravate the skin
Make sure to clean brows with alcohol-free, fragrance-free baby wipes BEFORE applying new layer of ointment
Brows may get itchy, don’t pick! The pigment will lift out of the brows and leave empty spaces if you pick at your brows. Please use small amount of ointment provided in your aftercare packet to help relieve itchy sensation.
Use a fresh pillow case, preferably satin and try to avoid sleeping on your side for the first 10 days. Your pillow may rub the tail of your brow and scrap the scabs which will result in loss of deposited pigment. If you can’t avoid, apply a non-stick bandaid on to your brows and wear an eye mask to hold it in place if needed.
No sweating or excessive exercise for 7-10 days
Quick showers, no steam and wash from the back!
Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the brow area for 10 days
No facials, botox, chemical peels or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
No major sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks
Use alcohol-free, fragrance-free baby wipes to wipe brows before applying fresh new aftercare ointment
