What is Microblading and Permanent Makeup?

Permanent cosmetics, including microblading, is an application using tiny needles to implement pigment into the skin. This can be achieved anywhere on the skin including eyebrows, eyeliner, areola, lips, and any part of the skin that is needed to emphasize pigment. Permanent cosmetics/microblading is in fact semi-permanent and can last anywhere between 1-3 years depending on skins health and the lifestyle of the client.
    Permanent cosmetics/microblading is not meant to replace makeup completely but rather to enhance hair loss or loss of pigment including over-tweezed eyebrows, hair loss, enhancement of lashes, fading of lips and beauty marks or for the busy individual or athlete that may need to look their best at all times.

Microblading & Permanent Makeup Pre & Post Care Instructions

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.
  • No Sun or Tanning prior to the procedure.
  • Discontinue Glycolics, Chemical Peels, and Retin-A 4 weeks prior.
  • No brow waxing or tinting one week before.
  • Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine 24 hours before.

Post-Treatment Instructions

  • Following the procedure, it is recommended to apply ice packs for 10-15 minutes for the first three hours. The ice is used to minimize swelling and provide comfort. Do not take aspirin, as this promotes bleeding at the treatment sites. Over the counter pain medication is recommended for temporary pain relief.
  • Apply Bacitracin or Aquaphor 1-2 times per day for the following week or whenever the area feels dry. Keeping the area moisturized and soothed is important for color retention.
  • Stay out of the sun! If you must be out and about, wear a hat and lots of sunscreen.
  • Keep water off of your brows for at least 24 hours.
  • Do not use any face creams, exfoliants, or harsh cleansers on your brows during the healing process.
  • Avoid swimming and hot tubs during the healing process.
  • Normal activity can be resumed immediately. We recommend that heavy exercise such as aerobic dancing, weight lifting, etc. be delayed for approximately one to two days following the procedure.
  • Your procedure will begin to oxidize immediately and during the next 3-4 days. This causes pigment to become darker. Do not be alarmed, this dark color will either flake off or fade back to the color that was first implanted (during the 1st five minutes of the procedure).
  • Do not pick any scabs or dry areas that may form during the healing process, this may cause you to lose color or damage your skin.
  • Other fading or loss of pigment may occur. Some flaking off of the pigment is normal on some skin types. A touch up may be required to achieve lasting color.
  • Judgment of your final results should be deferred until one month following the procedure. Over the next two to three weeks, the pigment intensity will lighten by up to 50%. Your technician will schedule a follow-up appointment to make sure any faded areas are touched up and everything is healing properly.
  • Contact the office or seek medical attention if any concerning or unusual side effect occurs.
