BEFORE & AFTER CARE
Eyebrow Care (before)
To maximize the procedure, it is important that you follow the procedures listed below prior to your scheduled visit. Do not take Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Niacin or Vitamin E, Omega 3 and Fish Oil 24 hours before your procedure. Do not go tanning in or outdoors or have a sunburned face. Do not get a wax or tint 3 days before. Do not work out the day of. Do not drink alcohol or caffeine the day of the procedure. Do keep in mind that if you are scheduled during your menstrual cycle you will be more sensitive.
Eyebrow Care (after)
To ensure that you have long lasting results, please follow the aftercare procedures outlined below. Absolutely no cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 2 weeks. 100% Petroleum jelly can be applied only. Keep the area as lubed as possible. No water on treated area either. Keep the area clean and sterile. Don’t scratch, rub or pick at the area, let it heal on its own. Scabbing or dry skin are normal and a part of the process so let it heal naturally.
Avoid sleeping on your face for as long as possible but specifically for at least 10 days. Do not get any other treatments on or near the area such as facials, chemical peels or microdermabrasion for at least one month. Avoid the sun for at least a month and if you can’t help it, always cover the treated area. Avoid heavy sweating for at least two weeks.
How long does the process take?
It is completely normal to experience some tenderness and swelling immediately following the procedure and for a few days after. The pigment will appear darker and more vibrant than how it will actually look when it is healed. Healing durations vary with each person but generally take between 5 to 8 days. Other than the slight sensitivity to the treated area, healing is normally painless.
How long does it take?
Although permanent makeup lasts for years allowing you to focus on more important matters, the exact length of time varies depending on skin type, lifestyle and exposure to the sun. To maximize the duration, please follow the after treatment care provided above and try and always cover treated area when in the sun.
What is microblading?
In short, microblading is a semi-permanent procedure for eyebrows, similar to tattooing, that uses a specialized, handheld tool to create the appearance of hairstrokes on the brow line. These hairstrokes imitate real eyebrow hairs, creating the appearance of thicker, fuller brows.
How does it work?
Microblading is the process of making lots of tiny, superficial cuts in the brow line, which are then filled in with pigments to create darker, fuller brows. Microblading is also used to reshape the brow. It can fill in thinning arches, or create the perfect tapering effect. Thanks to a specially designed hand tool, microblading can create hair-thin cuts that mimic the shape of real eyebrows. The added control offered by the instrument means a more refined, natural looking brow. Traditional eyebrow tattooing made brows look artificial, both in thickness and color, resulting in “Sharpie”-esque brows. With microblading, however, the results are nearly indistinguishable from real eyebrows.
Does it hurt?
Working alongside board-certified plastic surgeon Orna Fisher. We are able to use a prescription strength numbing cream to minimize discomfort.
How long does it take?
What happens after?
You should avoid getting your brows wet for about a week. You’ll want to use an antibiotic ointment for the first 24 hours after treatment, and then Vaseline or a similar ointment for the following week. Avoid using any products with glycolic acid on your brows, as this can fade the pigment. Your brows will look much darker at first, but some of that color will fade after a week or so.
How much does it cost?
How long does it last?
The results of microblading usually last between 1 and 3 years. Because it’s semi-permanent, the pigment will eventually fade. For optimal results, please follow out touch-up rules.
Who should get microblading?
Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing where the pigment is placed in the dermal layer of the tissue. Retention of the pigment is out of our control, as it is determined by the patient's skin type, how well they follow after-care procedures, as well as their immune system, therefore no specific results can be 100% guaranteed.
