Before care

* Wash your hands before touching or applying any product to area

* Apply healing balm provided with a cotton swab a few days after your procedure and  only if necessary to avoid excessive dryness and scabbing

* Maintain facial hygiene and cleanse brows according to your aftercare instructions  provided at your appt. 

* You may use a moist clean cotton pad to gently go over eyebrow area

* Do not stand under shower head or get area completely wet

* Itching is normal....DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR RUB the eyebrow area

* Allow the area to flake on its own as this will preserve the tattoo

* Avoid sun exposure as much as possible afterwards 

* NEVER  lay in a tanning bed

Your eyebrows may be swollen, red, and tender immediately following the procedure, this is normal and will return to normal by the next day. For the first couple of days they will be very dark and defined, and around day 4-6 will start to get a bit dry and flakey. As a part of the healing process they will gradually lighten as the tissue heals, and some of the flaking may take some color with it, THIS IS NORMAL; the color will return as the weeks ago on. Microblading is a two part process, and any inconsistency will be perfected at the touch up appointment.  Once you have healed, It is smart to purchase a high SPF chapstick to put on your brows when you plan to be in the sun, as the sun can fade the cosmetic tattoo and the SPF chapstick will ensure their retention lasting longer.

what to expect

after care

  • DO NOT get your lashes wet for the first 24-48 hours.
  • DO NOT rub hard while cleansing your face. Gently clean around the eyes for a longer lash life.
  • DO NOT pull on the lash extensions. This will cause damage to your lashes and the lash line.
  • DO NOT use the sauna while wearing lash extensions.
  • NO MASCARA!!!
  • Try not to remove lashes on your own, this can cause damage to your natural lashes. If you want them removed, please schedule a remover appointment.
  • DO NOT cut your lash extensions.
  • Stay away from oil based products. Oil will cause premature shedding. 
  • Make sure you clean your lashes as needed. The cleaner your lashes, the longer they will last.
  • Do not use any eyelash curlers.
  • Remember to come in for 2-3 weeks fill ins to keep your lashes maintained and to keep from starting over.

Expect to have full, long, and maintenance-free natural looking lashes for the next 2-3 weeks! Make sure to follow the after care instructions well to that your lashes stay full for as long as they can before your fill in appointment. You should expect to see some shedding, this is normal because each natural lash has its own life. Some of your lashes are farther along in their growth cycle, so if you follow instructions to a "T" and some still shed...don't worry, that is normal. Make sure you schedule your fill in advanced, my calendar will fill up and if I'm booked and you cant get in for a fill in time, it will be considered a full set.
