Microblading Pre-Care

  • Avoid sun burns and tanning one week prior
  • Avoid Ibuprofen, Advil, Vitamin E, Fish oils, aspirin and blood thinners (if these meds and supplements are Dr prescribed please consult with your Dr before you discontinue!)
  • Avoid Alcohol and caffeinated beverages 48 hours before procedure
  • Avoid any microdermabrasion, chemical peels prior to your procedure
  • Discontinue Retin-A 1 month prior
  • Stop all Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) near the brow area 1-2 weeks prior to procedure
  • No Botox 2 months prior
  • No tinting or brow waxing 1 week prior
  • Avoid Microdermabrasion and chemical peels 1 month prior
Important: Having this procedure done while menstruating may increase sensitivity(Please plan accordingly)
Very important: Avoid the sun and sun tanning 30 days before and after. Any peeling of the skin caused by sun exposure will cause skin and pigment to peel off. If you are sun tanned or sunburned we will have to reschedule and you will lose your deposit.
Prepare to be there 1.5 hours the day of the initial appointment
Please arrive on time to your apptointment so that you have time to fill out necessary paperwork and so that you can settle in and get ready for the procedure. 
It is very important you follow the aftercare. I can not make any guarantees as to the outcome of the procedure due to how differently everyone heals and also depending on whether or not a client has followed their after care will make a big difference. Please understand It is my aim to give the most beautiful brows but at the same token please know that it’s unrealistic to have anything extremely perfect.
