Please take in account that this procedure will take about 2 1/2 hours-3hours depending on your brows and their existing condition. Due to the nature of this service we kindly ask that you arrive unaccompanied to your scheduled appointment. Please leave friends, boyfriends/husbands, children and pets at home.
To achieve the full results of the microblading procedure, It is absolutely important to follow these steps:
-This is a 10 day long dry heal, meaning no ointment, sweat, water, creams, or bandages for 10 days. The brows are to stay dry and moisture free.
-Do not touch your brows at all! It is tempting but touching can infect them. Your brows may be itchy, do not scratch or pick. You could lift the pigment and cause scarring.
-Do not shower for 48 hours.
-Avoid direct water on the brows for 10 days (i.e. shower spray, face washing, swimming, rain, steam).
-After 48 hours prior to showering, gently apply a very thin layer of vaseline over the brows using clean hands. (This will seal out moisture, soap and shampoo.) Do not let shower spray directly on brows. Immediately after your shower, remove the Vaseline so the brows become dry again. DO NOT SCRUB OR RUB... blot and pat off vaseline only.
-Do nothing that would cause scabbing or flakes to come off prematurely- your body is healing- it will exfoliate the flakes or scabs on its own.
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss.
During healing (first 2 weeks) your eyebrows will appear darker and bolder due to natural scabbing and healing. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures. Don't freak out, this is normal!
What to expect during healing process
Right after your treatment your brows will appear bolder and darker than your final healed result. The intensity of the pigment will settle within a few days and the color will lighten over about thirty days as it completely sets in. Please be patient - great things come to those who wait.
