Preparing for Appointment


  • Please make sure you are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • No Chemical Peel, Retinol or Glycolic Acid on your brow area from now until your service date.
  • No aggressive facial treatments like IPL, BBL, Halo Laser or any other lasers, Hydro Facials.
  • Cannot be sunburned
  • No Botox or fillers on the brow area within 2 weeks prior to appointment.
  • No Microneedling 2-3 weeks prior to your service.


Absorb (Day of)

  • After the procedure, gently blot the area with a clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid.
  • Do this every 5 minutes until the oozing has stopped.
  • Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids. 

Wash (Days 1-7)

  • Wash daily to remove bacteria, buildup of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don’t worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)
  • Gently wash the area each morning and night with water and gentle soap or an unscented cleanser like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or baby shampoo.  With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the area.
  • Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away.
  • To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.

Moisturize and hydrate (Days 1-7)

  • Apply a tiny, rice grain amount of Aquaphor or Grapeseed Oil on 3 times a day with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area.
  • Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The product should be barely noticeable on the skin.
  • NEVER put the product on a wet or damp tattoo.

Important Reminders

  • Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep.
  • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color.
  • No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure.  Wear a hat when outdoors.
  • Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days. Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid face-down swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.
  • DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.

What can I expect after the microblading treatment?

After the eyebrow treatment, the eyebrows will intensify in color due to pigment oxidation; however, the brows do not get dark to the point of looking unnatural.  The brows will remain a dark for 2-4 days. You will see the true healed color 7-10 days after your treatment day. Healed color, on average, is 20%-30% lighter than the color immediately after treatment.

The color will get darker the day after the treatment and will lighten 20%-50% within 2 weeks after that.  Hence, no treatment is complete before the touchup session.

Sometimes eyebrow hairstrokes can fade or to completely disappear. That is normal. The strokes will resurface, and if they don’t, they will be topped with more color at your 6-8 week touchup appointment.
