Before & Aftercare
The before and aftercare aspect of permanent make up is as important as the actual application. We will make sure to clearly describe the correct before and aftercare treatment so that your permanent makeup will look amazing and last you for ages. It’s important to follow the before and aftercare instructions thoroughly to get the most out of your permanent makeup look. Our professional aestheticians will be certain to send you home with the correct products to take care of your new look.
The way you prime your skin and hair prior to the procedure will determine how the product takes. It’s typically important to shower prior to the appointment because it is typically recommended that you don’t shower at least 24 hours after the procedure. It may be best to schedule your appointment while you have a pretty free schedule to allow for healing and downtime. In the case of microblading eyebrows, there will be redness and swelling involved which means that you might not want to be around anyone directly afterward. Makeup should not be worn prior to the procedure. You should not have any waxing, tweezing, or tinting two weeks prior as well.
How you take care of your eyebrows and lashes after the process will affect the outcome of your look. Initially after microblading, the appearance of your eyebrows will appear darker and fuller than your intended look. This is because fading will happen within a week of microblading. The fading will result in the expected look and shape. Makeup should not be applied within 72 hours of the session. You should also be careful to not get the area fully immersed in water for up to 24 hours. Healing skin should not be exposed to sun, chlorine, or other chemicals. Scabbing from microblading is incredibly common, and it is very important not to pick at the eyebrows.
Because microblading is essentially tattooing semi-permanent ink into the eyebrow, scabbing can and will occur. This is a natural instance that happens to everyone although it’s not very attractive. Due to itchiness and appearance, it may be very difficult not to scratch at the site. Because the area is healing, it’s really important not to scratch or pick at the site because that can impair the way the eyebrows end up looking. Do not fret if it looks like the pigment is coming off with the scabs. This is a common occurrence because your skin naturally wants to get rid of the pigment that was inserted. This can result in patchy eyebrows, but once the healing process is over, you will see an all over lighter brow color that is similar to your expected outcome.
Due to the slight invasiveness of microblading, infection can occur. Your chances of this happening will increase if you neglect to follow the before and aftercare instructions. Our certified professionals will do everything we can to minimize the chances of infection by letting you know of all risks and possible outcomes
