You will get much better results when you properly prepare for your Microblading appointment. The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated. Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure:
Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis 1 week before the procedure
Do not tan 2 weeks prior to the service, or have a sunburned face (it is highly recommended that you avoid intense sun exposure and tanning bed exposure for 20 days before and after your procedure. If you show up to your appointment with a new tan or sunburn, you will need to reschedule.)
Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure
Do not work out the day of the procedure
Do not have botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure
Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners)
Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure.
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
Do not drink alcohol 24 - 48 hours before your tattoo.
Do not consume caffeine 24 hours before your procedure.
Do not take an Aspirin or Ibuprofen for pain relief (these also thin the blood).
