DOES IT HURT?
The treatment can be slightly uncomfortable, but bearable. You may use your own numbing cream but I would advise against this as it can affect the colour retention. Red heads, blondes and fair skin types may experience more swelling and redness than darker skin types.
Avoid any activity that will cause you to sweat on the day of your treatment.
- Take aspirin, fish oil, coudamin, vitamin E or ibuprofen 48-72 hours prior before unless medically advised. Paracetamol is fine.
- Acne medication (Accutane) for one year before procedure – no exceptions.
- Avoid caffeine/alcohol the day before and after your treatment.
- Smoking will cause the pigment to prematurely fade and will not last as long.
- Tan/sunburn on your face on the day of your treatment. NO SUN 30 days prior and post treatment (re-touch also).
If you arrive at your appointment with a tan/sunburn you will be required to reschedule and your deposit will be forfeited. I reserve the right to apply my own discretion if I feel that pre-procedure advice has not been followed.
30 minutes after your treatment please wash the treated area with cool, boiled water using clean cotton pads to remove any blood/lymphatic fluid from the treated area. Repeat this 2 more times leaving 2 hourly intervals in between. Then dry heal for the next 13 days. If you accidentally get the area wet use a dry tissue and pat gently. On day 3-4 if you feel they are very dry you may use a small amount of Bepanthen (nappy rash cream) but please don’t over moisturise them.
Only touch the area with clean hands during the healing process. Any scabbing or flaking will naturally shed. Some itching is normal, but please don’t pick, peel or scratch the treated area as the colour may heal unevenly and you will risk scarring and infection.
Do NOT apply any creams or makeup on your brows for 2 weeks after your treatment. You can get your brows wet after 2 weeks from your initial treatment, but only if all of the scabs have disappeared. Your aftercare procedure is just as important as your initial treatment.
Absolutely NO exercise, swimming, sunbathing, sun beds, saunas, direct shower spray, water or makeup should be applied in the area during the healing period. (14 days after treatment) Avoid sleeping on your face 2 weeks after the treatment.
No swimming until the area has completely healed. It is recommended to apply some vaseline to your brows when swimming after healing to protect the colour and stop chlorine/salt water from entering.
There are many factors that can affect the result of your microblading treatment. The main factor is the aftercare. The better you look after your microblading the longer they will last.
Skin type is also another factor that can affect the result. If you have oily skin, your results will look softer and more powdered instead of crisp strokes. If you have dark skin, please be aware your SPM will not appear as bold as lighter skin types. Red heads, blondes and fair skin types may experience more fading than darker skin types.
