Before and After Care
Before Procedure Care Instructions
In the week leading up to your appointment, please avoid using or ingesting blood thinners, aspirin, alcohol, or Retin-A creams, as these might cause excess bleeding or harm during your procedure.
Also, consider limiting your sun exposure for thirty days prior to and following your session. Tanned skin is skin that has suffered microtrauma, and microtrauma may interfere with the microblading procedure or its ability to heal.
After Procedure and Home Care Instructions
Do not wash or use makeup remover on the procedure area(s), or apply makeup, for 24 hours after the procedure. Do not touch the procedure area(s) with your fingers—they may have bacteria on them and cause an infection. Use a clean cotton swab to apply A&D Ointment or Vaseline 5 times daily for 7 to 10 days. We suggest A&D Ointment and Vaseline over other products, as they are non-reactive for most clients. If you are allergic to them, ask your doctor for an alternative. Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area(s) during healing (as pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue). Avoid contact with animals, gardening, sunlight, saunas, jacuzzis, chlorinated pools, ocean water, and steam rooms. To preserve color for a longer time and prevent future fading of pigment color, always use a “total sun block” sunscreen until healing is complete. Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area(s) (Example: glycolic or lactic acids). Always check your product labeling, as these chemicals will fade your pigment color.
For all permanent makeup procedures: avoid swimming, tanning, steam rooms, and jacuzzis for one week.
