AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT
(SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR DOWNLOAD)
The area treated may show redness and swelling and that the color looks dark and intense – this is quite normal. Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed. A 4-8 week healing time is required before any more work can be undertaken.
For the first 48-hours, no sweat, water, steam, direct sunlight, crying upside down, water parks, water balloon fights, etc. After the 48-hours, for the next four (4) days please avoid submerging your brows, excessive sweating, and use of makeup on your brows.
Once the area has healed completely (approx. one week) consider using a waterproof sunblock when going out in the sun to prevent color fading...and use that forever. Literally the sun is your worst enemy, protect your investment!
Strong chemicals or Glycolic Acid or peels of any kind may cause the pigment to lighten. Always call and check with your consultant if in any doubt.
Do not pick or pull at the treated area as it will result in pigment loss.
You will go through four healing phases:
1-heal, 2-peel, 3-fade and 4-return.
You may notice whiteness (blanching) or a color like yellow or orange around the area immediately after we're finished and this is quite normal and will subside within a few hours! The whitening around the brow is a result of the Lidocaine and the color seeping is due to a modifying pigment used during your treatment. Normal, don't panic!
If you find any lymphatic fluid (plasma) or blood seeping, you can gently clean the area with saline, cool boiled water and gauze, blotting gently dry to remove any moisture.
WASH - BLOT - GOO
WASH the brows by taking a pump of Dial soap in your fingertips and rubbing it together until it lathers. Press the lather on your eyebrows (don't rub or agitate the brow at all) and finally splash with water.
BLOT them with a paper towel.
GOO is to be added to the brow using your clean finger. Gently apply the Tattoo Goo® supplied to you during your session once a day unless instructed otherwise. Repeat the application of Tattoo Goo® up to 3 times a day if the area feels tight and dry. You should not have thick scabs - if this happens, please call us. The "scabs" you'll have are as thin as a hair and that's completely normal.
After the fine scabbing has sloughed away you will see a different hue to the color implanted.
Giving Blood – The Red Cross have suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following treatment.
MRI Scans – This procedure shows up as an artifact on the scan. Some clients may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist.
Injectables – Dermal fillers and Botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. The client should be advised that injectables should be carried out after a Microblading procedure and not prior. Should you get treatments prior to the procedure, please let us know as we will require you to reschedule in order to allow the brows to settle in their appropriate position.
Laser /Pulsed Light – Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments can cause color change – it is important to advise the therapist that you have had Microblading procedure as this cannot be rectified with another Microblading procedure.
Color Refreshing – To keep your new brows looking at their best it is recommended that you have a color refresh procedure every 12-18 months
