It all starts with a good canvas!
The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and
non-irritated. Here is how to get your skin ready for the procedure:
Do not pick/ tweeze /wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure.
Do not tan 2 weeks prior to the service or have a sunburned face.
Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure.
Do not work out the day of the procedure.
Do not have Botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure.
Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners).
Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure.
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
Do not drink alcohol 24 - 48 hours before your tattoo.
Do not consume coffee before your procedure.
Do not take an Aspirin or Ibuprofen for pain relief (these also thin the blood).
Please make sure you eat prior to your eyebrow microblading session and drink plenty of water.

The day of the treatment: After the procedure, remove plastic wrap in car, & once home gently wash eyebrows per instructions below. After washing, air dry and gently blot any additional fluids. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids.
Days 1-7: Gently wash your eyebrows each morning & night w/water & antibacterial soap & rinse ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. Make sure hands are clean prior to touching your eyebrows. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants. To Dry: Let air dry.
Days 1-7 Moisturize
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to 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 eyebrow while healing. No petroleum-based product, suggested ointment is Aquaphor.
Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep & try to sleep on your back for first 10 days.
Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away.
No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.
Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors & Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.
Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days.
Avoid face-down swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 10 days.
Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results with your microblading procedure.
Important note about showering:
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
