The following restrictions are to ensure your skin is in the best possible condition for your procedure:
- Please do not work out the day of the procedure as the body heat expands the pores.
- Avoid heavy sunlight and especially sunburn for 3 days before your procedure. Skin should not be in process of healing before procedure.
The following treatments should be avoided 4 weeks before the procedure:
- Botox or other fillers
- Chemical Peels
- Laser treatment
- Do NOT drink coffee or anything with caffeine the day of procedure.
- Do NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen, omega-3, unless medically necessary, 48-72 hours prior to the procedure. (Tylenol or acetaminophen is okay!)
- Do NOT drink alcohol 24 hours before the procedure.
- Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the shower head or take a bath.
- Wipe brows with a dry, clean cotton ball then apply Vaseline over the brow with a clean Q-Tip.
- It is normal for itching and flaking to occur during the first seven days post your microblading procedure, however, by following correct aftercare procedures, these symptoms should quickly disappear.
What to Avoid for 14 days after your microblading procedure:
- Increased sweating
- Practicing sports
- Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
- Sun tanning or salon tanning
- UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
- Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck
- Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
- Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
- Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
- Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
- Touching of the eyebrow area except for when implementing post care
