Pre-Procedure

 This treatment may not be ideal for you if . . .

  • Do not tweeze, wax or thread or tinting for 7 days prior
  • You have irritation of the skin, such as blemishes, pimples, rash, psoriasis, eczema, or sunburn on or near the area of the procedure.
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You are on Retin-A or Retinols. Please discontinue use of these medications for 7 days before your appointment, and avoid for 30 days after your procedure.
  • You must not have taken Accutane for 1 year prior / NO Exception
  • You have any of the following: Diabetes, Epilepsy, or Viral infections and/or diseases. (If unsure, please contact us).
  • Undergoing chemotherapy (please consult with your doctor).
  • Booking during your menstrual cycle is fine, however, it may increase more pain.
  • No alcohol or caffeine within 24 hours.
    • This will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure.
  • No sleeping on your face: 2 weeks prior.
  • No direct water on the procedure area: 2 weeks prior.
  • No heavy sweating: 2 weeks prior.
  • No exercise: 2 weeks prior and especially the day of your procedure
    • Body heat expands the pores, which is no good fir the skin.
    • Sweat contains salt and will cause the pigment to prematurely fade, blur or not to take at all.
  • No direct sun exposure: 30 days prior.
  • No Aspirin and/or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Niacin, B6, Omega 3, Gingko Biloba, & St. John’s Wort (these are blood thinners and may have an affect on the anesthetic and Vitamin E (internally): 72 hours unless medically necessary.   Tylenol is fine.
  •  DO NOT tan or get sunburn on your face prior to your procedure. The tan will exfoliate taking pigment with it as it fades. As it heals the pigment will darken making results darker than expected. Also skin that is tanned bleeds easier.
  •  Smoking will cause the pigment to fade prematurely and anesthetics will not last as long.   

Post-Procedure

  • *1 DAY WILL RUIN THE RESULTS IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE 2 WEEK AFTERCARE PROTOCOL.   RESULTS MAY BECOME INFECTED OR DISCOLORED.
  • **AFTER THE MICROBLADING PROCEDURE, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO PREVENT SOAP, WATER, LOTION, AND MAKEUP FROM COMING IN CONTACT WITH YOUR EYEBROWS FOR 14 DAYS PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION.
  • Only touch the treated areas with squeaky clean hands during the healing process. Wash your hands before touching any treated area. Cotton-tipped applicators may be used to gently cleanse the eye area. Do not expose the area to dirty or unsanitary conditions. Wearing glasses outdoors is a good way to protect new eyeliner from dust or debris that can stick to healing agents.
  •  Apply recommended healing agents sparingly, as directed.
  •  Heavy application of ointment and/or moisture trapped under ointment will cause adverse healing results.
    • Blot frequently to make sure that skin and hair in the treated area is thoroughly dry; free from moisture, and natural oils.
    • Use ointment if the area becomes dehydrated. Apply a very thin layer making sure skin and hair are thoroughly dry first.
  • Do not put face under direct shower spray for the first week after your brow or eyeliner procedures.
  • After a lip procedure, keep your lips moist at all times. Avoid spicy foods or heat. If using herpes medication, continue as prescribed. Switch to a waxy lip balm 6-7 days after the procedure. Do not use teeth bleaching products until fully healed.
  • No DIRECT WATER CONTACT: 2 weeks after
    • While showering it is advise to keep the face completely away from the showerhead to microbladed brows from coming in contact with water.
  • No Swimming:
    • until the area is completely healed, salt water/chlorine WILL cause the pigments to fade or change in color.  It is recommended to apply the Vaseline to the treated area/s prior to swimming even after healed to prevent the chlorine water/salt water from penetrating the area
  • CREAMS: 10 Days
  • LOTION: 2 WEEKS
  • VASELINE:2 WEEKS
  • CLEASNERS: 10 Days
  • MAKEUP:
    • Until fully healed No makeup is to be applied for 72 hours after the procedure. After any eyeliner procedure, use new mascara. Do not use an eyelash curler for two weeks.
  • DO NOT RAZOR BROWS: USE WAX
  • WAXING: wait at least 10 days
  • TINTING: wait at least 30 days
  • HEAVY SWEATING: 14 Days
  • EXERCISE: 14 Days
  • DIRECT SUN EXPOSURE: 2 WEEKS
    • Please avoid bright sunlight. I also advise to wear sunglasses for the first 6 hours’ post eyeliner tattoo procedure.
  • TANNING: 30 DAYS PRIOR TO AND AFTERWARDS. NO EXCEPTIONS!
    • Tanned skin bleeds easily and makes it hard to determine pigment color. If you continue to tan after your procedure, the results will appear darker, fade very fast and will not be retained. Because of scarring you will not be seen again before your scheduled appointment.
  • BOTOX, FACIALS, CHEMICAL TREATMENTS OR MICRODERMABRASION: 4 WEEKS
  • PICKING, RUBBING OR SCRATING: 4 WEEKS
    • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate and fall off on its own. Picking will cause scar tissue, therefore pigment will not be retained. you increase your chances of infection if fingernails are dirty.

Long-Term Care
Use a good sunscreen daily – even the lips require protection. Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics and may cause irritation even years later.  If you are planning chemical exfoliation, IPL, MRI, or other medical procedure, please inform your physician of your cosmetic tattoo.  If you donate blood, it is Red Cross policy that you must wait one year after any tattooing procedure in unregulated states – check if restrictions apply to you.

Touch Ups & Recommendations

Within a week of your first treatment the color will fade significantly and over the next four to six weeks can continue to fade as much as 50%. This is considered an extremely positive occurrence as it allows you time to reflect on your shape and color.

With properly healed procedures, micropigmentation in some cases can last up to 3 years before a touch up is needed.  We recommend that touch up services be performed every 24 months after the perfecting service is complete, and you have a “full release” from the practitioner.  Touch up services will keep the permanent makeup looking vibrant.

However, its up to the trained professional to determine and advise the best possible maintenance schedule for you since the frequent application can also have natural adverse reactions like “scar tissue”.  Because of scar tissue, it is my recommendation that you avoid touches for at least a minimum of 2 after the your perfecting service.  Once scar tissue is more present in the skin, the ability for the skin to retain pigment will be an issue.  The longer time that is waited between touch up services, the better.  Remember, permanent makeup is not a permanent solution.  At some point, micropigmentation or PMU will no longer be an option.

* If skin is oily, the need for more frequent touch ups may be desired.  Oilier skin can be more problematic due to pigment not being retained as long years .
