  • MICROBLADING/BROWS
    The area treated may show redness and swelling and the colour may look darker and more intense than desired – this is very normal. Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed and that time frame is at the discretion of the technician. A 4 to 6 week healing time is required before any further work can be done. In order to let your brows heal well avoid water on the brow area, makeup on the brow area, the gym, a sauna or swimming pool for 7 days. Once the area has completely healed (approximately one week) you may consider wearing sunblock on the treated area to reduce colour fading due to the sun although we recommend avoiding sun exposure for 2 full weeks after your services. Once completely healed you should wear sunblock on your brows (applied during your skin care routine) to protect your results from prematurely fading. Strong chemicals, Glycolic Acids or peels of any kind may cause lightening of the pigments. Always call and check with your technician if in any doubt prior to usage of these skin products or procedures. DO NOT PICK OR PULL at the treated area as it will result in pigment loss or scarring. We can tell when the area has been picked or scratched at. YOU WILL GO THROUGH 3 HEALING PHASES: 1-HEAL, 2- PEEL, 3-FADE You may notice whiteness or blanching around the area – this is quite normal and will subside with in 12 hours and is due to the Lidocaine. If you have any lymphatic fluid (plasma) or blood weeping from the area you may gently clean the area with saline, cool pre-boiled water and gauze blotting gently dry to remove any moisture. With clean hands and a cotton swab you may apply a fine layer of after care balm to the treated area. Repeat this treatment up to 3 times daily if the area feels tight. Some clients report seeing the ink fade almost completely then reappearing. This is not uncommon and sometimes part of the healing phase. After the fine scabbing has sloughed away you will see a different hue to the colour implanted. IMPORTANT FACTS: *Giving Blood – The Red Cross has suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following your procedure. *MRI Scans – This procedure shows up as and artifact on these scans. Some clients may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist. *Injectables – Dermal fillers and Botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. The client should be advised that injectables should be carried out after a microblading procedure and not prior to. *Laser/Pulsed Light – Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation can cause color change. It is important to advise the technician that you have had the Microblading procedure as this cannot be rectified with another Microblading procedure. This is a TATTOO and a WOUND. The end outcome depends on how well you care for it. It is essential to follow these post care instructions. The slightest hindrance can compromise the outcome of your tattoo. Day 1 (Day of Treatment): Blot Brows all day today to remove any Lymphatic fluid buildup. (oily and dry skin) Day 2-10 - Oily skin: Dry healing. Rinse brows only 1-2 times a day. Apply cream very sparingly only as needed or if itchy. Day 2 - 10 - Dry and Normal Skin: Rinse 3 to 5x a day gently rinse with warm water and then dry with cotton pad.

All shedding should be complete. You’re safe to put your face back in the shower spray Now is the time to critique your eyeliner. The tattoo has become part of the dermis, seen under the epidermis.
  • LIPS
    First Week: It’s important to try not to get the tattoo wet during the healing process (5-7 days). Even though it is unlikely that the tattoo will remain dry for the entirety of the healing process, refrain from swimming or submerging the area in water for long periods of time for the first week of healing. Following this makeup tattoo aftercare procedure will ensure the formation of thin scabs thus more colour retention. Keep out of the sun for 7 days after you get your tattoo. ● FOR LIPS ONLY: Use Aquaphor to keep the tattoo protected while it heals and to soothe any discomfort such as itching or dryness. Avoid applying lip balms, lipstick, or other lip products during this time. Apply Aquaphor every 30-60 minutes for the first week to keep lips from drying out. ● AVOID touching any tattooed area with your hands. Apply all recommended products with Q-tips ONLY. If the area must be touched with hands, make sure you thoroughly wash your hands before and after touching the tattooed area. ● Day 3-4: When the scab starts to appear, do not wipe- only dab until dry; you must be gentle! Do not pull off the scabs prematurely. ● Week 2 or 3: After the procedure is completely healed, you may go back to your regular cleansing and makeup routine. Avoid scrubbing the area. Use sun block after the procedure area is healed to protect from sun fading. DO NOT: Scrub, rub, or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it is ready, the pigment underneath it can be pulled out. ● Use any makeup on the tattooed area for at least 14 days. ● Use any Retin-A, Glycol Acids, or Neosporin in the tattooed area during or after healing. ● Expose area to sun or tanning beds. ● Swim in a pool for 14 days after your procedure. What is normal? Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light brushing and dry tightness. Ice packs are a nice relief for swelling and bruising. Aftercare ointments work well for scabbing and tightness. ●Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade, and once any swelling dissipates, unevenness usually disappears. Adjustments will be made during the touch-up appointment. ● Colour change or colour loss. As the procedure area heals, the colour will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear in places. This can be addressed during the touch up appointment, which is why touch up appointments are necessary. The procedure area has to heal completely before we can address any concerns. Healing takes about 4 weeks. An email photo consultation (or in person consolation) may be necessary to determine if you need a touch up or a repeat of the entire procedure. CAUTION If the skin around the tattooed area breaks into a heat rash, or small pimples, this is usually a reaction to the numbing solution and should go away on its own in a couple of weeks. Please do not pick at it! Call immediately if this occurs so a technician can make a note of the reaction and follow up to ensure this is not a more serious situation!

After the procedure, your technician will provide you with your post procedure care and a few non-stick gauze pads to get started.
