Microblading Pre-Procedure Guidelines

  • A Microblading procedure usually requires multiple treatment sessions. For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one touch up appointment. This will take place 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure. Those with oily skin may require an additional touch up. Please be aware that color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately and a few days after the initial procedure, but the color will reduce by 30-50%.
  • Although a topical numbing cream is applied during the procedure, sensitivity or discomfort may be felt. Skin May be red and / or swollen after the procedure.
  • Please avoid coffee on the day of your procedure.
  • Where possible, avoid the following prior to your appointment- black pepper, garlic and cinnamon.
  • Do not shape or wax your eyebrows before the procedure. Your technician will shape brows during the procedure.
  • No electrolysis at least 5 days before the procedure.
  • No Botox, AHA products, retinoids for at least two weeks prior to procedure.
  • No chemical peel or laser treatments at least 6 weeks prior to procedure.
Please note that hormone therapies can affect pigmentation and cause sensitivity.
Lip Blushing Pre-Procedure Guidelines
  • Lip blushing is recommended 4 weeks post filler injections
  • Clients will need to exfoliate their lips for a week prior to the appointment at home using sugar scrub.
  • You’ll need to make sure using lip balm everyday leading up to the procedure.
  • We do not tattoo outside of the natural lip border.
  • Start oral arnica tablets as directed at least 1 day prior to your procedure, and continue for 5 days post procedure. DO NOT apply the topical arnica to the lips.
  • Avoid blood thinning supplements, avoid blood thinning medications like aspirin, Midol, Excedrin and NSAIDs unless prescribed by your physician. Tylenol can be taken
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to procedure, as it increases bruising and potential for bleeding.
  • No exercise for 48 hours post treatment. Recommend to avoid exercise for 5-7 days post procedure to minimize risk of infection and swelling.
  • PMU Post Procedure Guidelines
  • It is extremely important to rinse the lips with warm water , pat dry and apply ointment before bed on procedure day.
  • Do NOT pick, peel or scrub the scabs that will form post procedure.
  • The lips can bruise after the procedure, but will typically subside within a few days.
  • Keep the lips and brows moisturized with ointment . Do not apply Vaseline , chapstick ,etc.
  • A clean ice pack may be applied to the area to help reduce swelling.
  • AVOID water aside from gently cleaning the area. It is important to stay away from makeup, excessive sweating, saunas, pools for a min 7 days.
  • Expect around day 3-4 that the lips will get very dry and flakey.
  • The color may seem to “vanish” within the first week , but be advised that the color slowly “bloom” to a soft shade during the first 6-8 weeks.
  • To reduce discomfort and swelling, Tylenol can be taken.

Microblading is a form of tattooing.

Unlike a regular tattoo, “microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine.

You need to prepare….

If you drink a lot, take aspirin, or use retinol, stop one week before your treatment. Retinol makes your skin thin and then you bleed way more than usual. Avoid blood thinners, aspirin, and alcohol.

Pain is relative. “Some feel more than others. Overall it feels like little scratches. You feel it, but it’s not unbearable. It’s not like having a baby,”. :).

*We require $50 deposit for ALL permanent makeup procedures.
