Please follow the Pre-Instructions and Post-Instructions listed below to ensure proper healing and maximum color retention for your microblading procedure.

Remember that colors appear brighter and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure. As the healing progresses, color will soften. You should wait to interpret final results until healing is complete. A perfecting procedure is necessary to refresh the color.

Microblading Pre-Instructions

  • Non-aspirin pain relievers may be taken up to 1 hour prior to the procedure.  
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT discontinue any medications that are prescribed by a physician or which are necessary for your health. Avoid alcohol 25 hours prior to the procedure to prevent bleeding.   
  • If you have a condition that requires you to have to take antibiotics before a dental visit, you must check with your doctor to determine if antibiotics are needed for permanent cosmetics.  
  • Hair removal may be done 24 hours prior to procedure (ex. tweezing, threading, etc.) 
  • Waxing may be performed 7 days prior to procedure.  
  • Botox and skin plumping injections such as Restylane may alter the shape of permanent cosmetics. You must wait until these treatments have worn off (usually three months).  
  • Skin treatments such as Retin-A that thin the skin in the procedure area must be discontinued for at least 7 days prior to the procedure. Check with your dermatologist about specific medications.  
  • Procedures cannot be performed over fresh sunburns, including those caused by tanning beds. You must wait until the burn heals.  

Note: You may or may not be allowed to give blood for one year following your procedure depending on your state. See your donation specialist for details. 

Microblading Post-Instructions

  • Day of your procedure, wipe brows with supplied cotton rounds soaked in distilled water every hour until bedtime, then apply Recover-All before going to sleep.  
  • Apply Recover-All (or other provided ointment) sparingly 3 times per day for one week following the procedure, using a clean cotton swab each time, not your fingertips. The ointment is used to prevent infection and minimize crusting. Apply a thin layer to prevent excessive dryness, and use a clean cotton swab for each dip into the ointment. NO double dipping! 
  • Stay out of the sun. If you must be outside, wear a hat and sunscreen.  
  • Darker skin (Fitzpatrick 5 or 6) may or may not hyper pigment (turn 2 or 3 shades darker) during healing. This effect may take 6 to 8 weeks to develop if it occurs, therefore darker skin types should wait 6 to 8 weeks between appointments, even if the brows appear to be too light or even disappear. They can initially appear light and then turn darker (reappear) during the healing process. Darker colors may be used at a follow-up if hyper pigmentation does not occur.  
  • Avoid exercise that causes sweating for 48 hours.
  • Avoid makeup, lash/brow tints, and other facial treatments until the procedure heals (5-7 days). Very gentle facial washes and treatments are acceptable after 24 hours as long as the procedure area is avoided.  
  • Avoid any clothing that may irritate the procedure area.  

Other Notes:

Your Brows will begin to turn darker immediately and for the next 3 to 4 days. After this, the color will settle back to the original color you chose. 

It is normal for some people to have pigment scab or flake off.  It is also normal if it does not.  Fading or loss of pigment may occur during healing.  There should be pigment under the skin where the pigment has flaked off. If there is no pigment underneath, you may need a touch up. 

Over the next two to three weeks, the color may lighten up by 50%.  

Pigment may come off on your pillow while you sleep and may stain liners. Use a clean cover that you won’t mind staining if this happens. 

Symptoms of infection or adverse reaction may or may not occur. They include: excessive redness, swelling, tenderness of procedure site, elevated body temperature, rash, or purulent drainage from procedure site.

If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. Please note that some swelling, redness, and tenderness after the procedure is normal.
