AFTER CARE FOR MICROBLADING
+ NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days, unless given by your technician.
+ DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking your scabs can prematurely pull the pigment out of the skin and possibly cause scarring.
+ Do not expose your healing skin to direct sun, tanning beds, hot tubs, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, hot water, skin creams, ointments, or lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for 3-4 weeks following your procedure.
+ Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days.
+ NO facials, Botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
+ DO NOT let water touch your eyebrows when showering or washing your hair.
+ If you have oily skin it is recommended to use a blotting paper a couple times per day, starting the next day after procedure. The less oil that surrounds the site the better healing results you will have.
Permanent makeup NOT recommended for any clients who have the following conditions:
+ Pregnant or nursing
+ Chemotherapy (consult your doctor)
+ Viral infections and/or diseases
+ Pacemaker or major heart problems
+ Organ transplant
+ Skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
+ Sick (cold, flu, etc.)
+ Botox in the past 2 weeks
LONG TERM CARE
+ Use a good sunscreen after 10 days, sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics
+ If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure or an MRI scan, please inform the technician/your care provider of your permanent cosmetics.
+ The use of RetinA/Tretinoin, chemical peels and acid peels or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used on the forehead area will cause the permanent makeup of the eyebrow area to fade prematurely.
Please be aware that the result of the procedure is dependent on the following: medication and health conditions, skin conditions - i.e. oily skin, very dry/flaky skin, sun-damaged skin, loose skin, natural skin undertones, alcohol intake and smoking, general stress, compromised immune system, poor diet and not following the aftercare instructions, may affect your healed results.
Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink have their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached or free, may get attached to others compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that info, an educated client may have better expectation and know that she / he may need more frequent adjustments that others. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.
