Prior to Your Appointment
To ensure best results, make sure your health is in good condition. Get enough rest, eat well, exercise.
72 hours before and after your microblading/microstroking appointment: avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen.
One week before : stop taking the following supplements (Vitamin E, B6, Omega 3, Gingko Biloba, St. John's Wort) as they contribute to thinning the blood and may affect anesthetic efficacy. You may resume taking your vitamins 72 hours after.
On the day of your appointment: avoid caffeine and exercise. Wash your hair in the morning as you will need to avoid the shower for several days. Baths are recommended. Pigments during microblading are not implanted as deep into the skin as a traditional tattoo, or even micropigmentation with an electric permanent makeup device. This allows for healed results of very fine, thin, and crisp hair lines, however, results do not last as long as traditional methods. A color boost is required usually between 12-18 months. A touch-up may be required at 12 months or sooner for oily-skinned clients, those who tan often, or or often expose brow area to certain chemicals (facial peels, chlorine, anti-aging products, etc.). Pigment retention varies depending on skin type, age, aftercare, immune system, medications, certain chemicals, and the type of pigment used.
We use only the best quality pigments that heal true to color. All materials used during each and every appointment (including pre-sterilized blades) are 100% disposable. We strictly adhere to both Oklahoma Public Health and OSHA guidelines for proper infection control practices.

*Botox in the past 2 weeks

* Any treatment, medication, or illness that compromises the immune system / healing would make you NOT a good candidate for micropigmentation procedures.

Microblading After Care
Failure to follow instructions may cause loss of pigment, discoloration, or infection.
Contact us or your physician if you see any signs of infection or have any concerns.
*NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days.
*4-5 hours after your procedure clean your brows only once with distilled or boiled water at room temperature with cotton balls, pads or gauze. Squeeze out the excess water from the cotton ball, pad or gauze so that they are not saturated before wiping off any ointment or lymph fluids.
*DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring!
*Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after procedure.
*Avoid heavy sweating for 10 days.
*No facials, botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
*Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
LONG TERM CARE AFTER BROWS HAVE HEALED
*Use a good sunscreen (SPF 55 or higher)
*If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure or an MRI scan, please let inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics
*The use of Retin-A/Tretinoin or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used regularly on the forehead area will cause the permanent makeup to the eyebrow area to fade prematurely.
*The use of chemical peels and acid peels regularly on the forehead region can also cause eyebrow pigmented areas to fade prematurely.
