Pre/Post Care for Powder Brow
If you've never had microblading or PMU done before, consultations are not required, and you may book an appointment after reading the following page. Please read below carefully and thoroughly and treat it as an "online consultation."
Come to your appointment prepared:
Come to your appointment with an idea of what you want (you can bring pictures too)
If you like they way you fill in your eyebrows and want them microbladed similarly, then you may come with them filled in.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, or any blood thinning medications (unless prescribed by a doctor) for couple days before your appointment (aka: Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, etc)
Avoid the use of fish oils 2 weeks prior.
Avoid tanning/excessive sun exposure 2 weeks before (and 2 weeks after).
No botox/dysport 2 weeks before the appointment (or 2 weeks after).
No harsh exfoliation, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, skin treatments, etc. 2 weeks prior to the appointment.
Avoid use of Retin-a, Renova, and Glycolic acids 2 weeks prior.
No brow waxing or tinting one week prior.
Latisse (or other growth serums/oils) used on the eyebrows must be discontinued for min of 3 weeks. Be aware; if you have ever used Latisse on your eyebrows then you may have more redness/swelling from microblading.
If you are nervous, consider bringing headphones and music. Numbing will be used.
Plan your procedure with your schedule/vacations/events! DO NOT schedule when you have an incoming event that conflicts with healing. You will need 2 weeks to heal and 2 more weeks to see the final result. Expect an additional touch-up 4-6 weeks after the first appointment.
You CANNOT get permanent makeup if any of the following apply to you (indicated with Red):
Pregnancy/breast feeding- NO EXCEPTIONS
Use of Accutane (acne medication)- must discontinue for 1 year before getting any permanent makeup procedures.
Hemophilia- Bleeding Disorder
Trichotillomania- Compulsive pulling of body hair or scabs on body
Keloid Scarring history- If you've ever had a diagnosed keloid scar, you need to supply a Doctors approval note at your appointment
have Heart Conditions/Pace Maker/Defibrillator/Stint
If you are Hemophiliac
Any active skin disease/condition on the face (cold sores, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, severe acne in the brow area, actinic keratosis, rosacea, contact dermatitis, shingles, etc,) any other skin conditions that are not listed please ask about before booking
Epilepsy- Must get a doctors note for approval
Uncontrolled Diabetic OR Uncontrolled High blood pressure
Minors cannot get any permanent makeup service, even with parental approval
Chemotherapy or Radiation treatments - You can get microblading with a doctors note of approval.
The following conditions (indicated with blue) do not prevent you from getting permanent makeup, but should be considered when deciding if it is right for you.
Cirrhosis of the Liver: Susceptible to infection
Scar tissue: Scars can be tattooed over, however be aware that scar tissue can prevent proper healing; pigment may not take to the skin at all. This can happens if you've had microblading or permanent makeup in the past.
Alopecia (Hair loss due to auto immune disease): shading may stay better than microblading but skin associated with this condition can potentially lead to complete or heavy fading, very quickly.
Oily skin (or oily in the t-zone): You may require more touch-ups
Platelet Disorders- Causes more bleeding to occur, and therefore lower pigment retention.
Moles/raised areas in or around the brow area: Pigment will not be put into moles or anything raised but you can be tattooed around them
Hair transplant for your eyebrows: Pigment will not take in the scar tissue where the plugs were placed and permanent makeup is not recommended
Thyroid medications: Potential for faster fading and need for more touch-ups
Auto Immune Disorder of any kind (MS, RA, Lupus etc): Due to the medicines to treat these disorders, pigment will not retain well
Frequent Exercise (4-7 days per week): The salt in sweat may cause faster fading, or lines may appear more blurred over time. Even if the results are healed, frequent gym-goers will fade more!
Anemia: Will require more touch-ups
Tanning: May alter color over time
MEDICATIONS: Taking certain medications can effect your skin and the way it heals. Taking a lot of different medications at once will also make it harder to predict how well the permanent makeup will heal on you (no its not the same as a regular tattoo).
The following medications will prevent proper pigment retention and if you take any of these regularly you should not get permanent makeup:
Time spent in the sun and overall health play a factor in fading.
These instructions and requirements are for your safety and are recommended for the best results possible. If you show up to your appointment/book your appointment without following any/all of the above requirements including pre-care or you have any of the conditions indicated in red above, you will be turned away and charged a cancellation fee. If you experience any of the conditions above indicated in blue, then by scheduling you except the possible outcomes explained.
Please apply healing cream (provided free at the appointment) a couple times a day, and at night, before bed with clean fingers, until it runs out.
Rinse your brows with water as needed, however it is best to keep eyebrows dry as much as possible. (DO NOT RUB eyebrows, simple rinse with room temperature water). Don't use hot water. Lightly dab (not wipe) the area dry with a towel and wait until eyebrows are completely dry before adding healing cream.
If the area starts to get itchy, this is normal, don’t itch the area. This can cause scars and poor healing.
NO exercising for 10-14 days after your appointment. The salt in sweat can cause poor healing/fading and blurring of lines. Please don't exercise, even if you "don't sweat."
Do not touch the newly tattooed areas with your fingers.
Try and sleep on your back. Sleeping on your side or stomach could increase the risk of pulling off healing skin, causing pigment to come out with the scabs.
Do not pick or itch the flaking, scabbing skin. This could pull the pigment out and cause scarring (flaking and scabs are natural reactions and should fall off on their own). Even small amounts of picking, or "helping" a scab fall off can drastically change how much fading occurs.
No sun/tanning beds for at least 2 weeks. Understand that any tanning/sun exposure will fade the pigment and possibly change its color over time, even after the healing is completed.
Use sun-screen after day 14
No HOT showers, exercising, or saunas directly after the procedure. Shower pressure should not go directly on the tattooed area for 10-14 days. Wait 2 weeks to submerge face in a swimming pool/hot tub.
Don’t use a harsh cleanser near the area for 3 weeks (be aware of products with chemical exfoliation). You may use a mild cleanser once the scabs have shed.
NO anti-aging creams of any sort on area for 2 weeks.
You may wear makeup on the rest of your face but don't put any makeup on the eyebrow area for at least 10 days
