Awareness after the procedure and aftercare instructions

 

Touch up visits should be scheduled between 30-45 days post procedure. All permanent make up procedures are a two-step process. Results are not determined until touch up application is completed. Failure to follow these instructions may result in pigment color loss and longevity.

Things to know
Keep in mind that semi-permanent make up makes superficial cuts into skin which may cause some scabbing. We recommend that you do not touch your brows or peel the scabs. Allow the scabs to naturally fall. Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers, they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.

We highly recommend
Use the dry healing method for the first 5 days following the procedure to optimize the results of color retention and longevity. After the 5th day, if you feel the area is too dry or there is too much scabbing, gently use a clean q-tip to apply a thin layer of ointment to the area to keep saturated and moisturized. Apply your favorite antibiotic ointment or Vaseline 3-5 times daily until the procedure area has healed. Always use a clean cotton swab and not your fingertip, wash your hands before applying ointment. We suggest Vaseline, as it s non-reactive.

Showering / Bathing
Before bathing, gently apply a light coating of Vaseline on the procedure area using a clean cotton swab. Continue this regime until the procedure area has completely healed.

Activities
No water, sweating, make up, tinting or lashes or brows, sun, soap, sauna, Jacuzzi, swimming in chlorine pools or in the recreational bodies of water, contact with animals, gardening for 7-10 days, (until area is completely healed) post procedure and after all touch ups.

While healing
Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area while it is healing (pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue). try to sleep on a satin pillowcase while the procedure area is healing.

When healed
Gently apply broad spectrum facial sunscreen to the treated area has healed to prevent future fading of pigment color. Do not get peels or use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area. (Exmple: Glycolic, Lactic acids). Always check your product labeling. Because it will fade your pigment color. If you are a blood donor, you may not give blood for 1 year following your Permanent Make up application (as per Red Cross). We suggest a yearly “color refresher” to maintain your procedure color integrity.

Can I wear make up after the procedure?

No. You ought not to apply any make-up on the eyebrow area if you have gone through microblading/microshading procedure. Right after the procedure, the outer layer of the skin is open and as days go by scabbing of the skin appears. We have to patiently wait for 10-14 days for the wound to totally heal. The Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.

Can I do exercise after the procedure?

Normally, it takes between 7-14 days for the skin to heal from the initial procedure. While healing, avoid heavy sweating or activities like swimming or running. Exercise expands the pores and produces sweat that may affect the healing process. Also damp conditions also attract dirt and contaminants.

If you experience any itching, swelling, blistering or any other complications post-procedure, stop using product and call your technician immediately. You may be allergic to the after care product you are using. If you have the excessive redness, swelling or tenderness or any red streaks going from the procedure, elevated temperature, or purulent drainage from the procedure site, contact your physician as the area may be infected and you may need to seek medical care.

Preparations during the Microblading/Microshading procedure

 

Eyebrows serve the wonderful function of keeping unwanted sweat, dust and debris out of your eyes. They act as a barrier that prevents bacteria like sweat from rolling down your forehead and into your sockets. Eyebrows also play an important role in facial recognition and in communication. Downcast brows immediately communicate an individual’s displeasure, while arched and heightened brows may convey amazement, curiosity and pleasure.

 

Do you have clients who draw their own shape for the microblading? 

No we don’t, we have to draw it. Client can’t draw their own because:
1. Pencil we use is safe to perform the blading/shading over, it won’t get infected even if it gets into the the open wound.
2. We have certain way to draw the shape for the artist to follow when it comes to balding/shading part. The drawing can’t be like their regular make-up look.
3. The artist gets to know what client wants while shaping/drawing.

 

Can i bring photos to show to the artist as how i like to draw them?

Client is encouraged to bring photos of their liking permanent make-up work or eyebrows style, even picture of themselves with eyebrows make-up. Also they should wear their regular make-up to their appointment so we can make the shape to fit their styles.

The process can be time consuming because it is important to map out and pencil in your eyebrows  with your technician prior to penning in your semi-permanent eyebrows. Be patient and take as much time as you need for this part of the treatment. You will be the one sporting these eyebrows, so you want to ensure you absolutely love the look of them. The aim of the procedure is to beautifully compliment your facial expressions, and highlight your structure and features. Before beginning the blading process, examine your face in the mirror from multiple angles. Have your technician take a photo of you from head-on and from the side so you can fully see what your eyebrows will look like.

The microblading procedure is a bit of a commitment with the two-step, multiple hour procedure, but in comparison to the daily chore of penciling in your eyebrows, it is an engagement worth investing in, with significantly less maintenance than that of pencil or powder.
