  • Microblading procedure normally requires multiple sessions. To achieve the best results, you will be required to come back for a touch up between 4 to 6 or 8 weeks after the initial appointment.
  • Be prepared for the color intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals. This process can take up to 2 weeks, sometimes more.
  • Please wear your normal make-up to your enhancement appointment.
  • NO alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before procedure (Yes, there is caffeine in decaf coffee and tea!).
  • Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.
  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure.
  • Avoid Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes (Shakeology, etc), “Hair, Skin, Nail” supplements 48 hours prior to procedure.
  • Discontinue Retin-A at least 4 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure).
  • Refrain from use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure).
  • Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 1 month prior to procedure for those who do not regularly receive injectables.
  • No brow waxing, tinting, or threading one week prior (the more natural hair growth you have, the better!
  • Avoid Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion or facials for 4-weeks prior procedure.
  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

Follow the instruction below for the next 7 days or until scabs are completely gone.

  • For Microblading, wipe off Magic Sealer after 4-5 hours with a damp cotton pad.
  • Clean eyebrows at the end of the day with a damp cotton pad.
  • For oily skin, dry heal (NO ointment or anything applied to the eyebrows).
  • For non-oily skin, after 48 hours, apply After Care Gel or A&D ointment 1-2 times daily.
  • Keep eyebrows dry (avoid them being submerged in water for too long; ex. Swimming or sauna. A quick shower or washing face is fine, just avoid the eyebrow area).
  • No exercising, tanning, waxing or threading.
  • No makeup, eyebrow pencil, lotion or other facial products on the eyebrows.
  • If necessary, use an eyebrow pencil to touch up after eyebrows heal completely.

What to expect (days may vary for everyone):

  • Immediately after: shape may appear uneven due to swelling.
  • Day 1 – 3: eyebrows will appear darker and thick.
  • Day 4 – 7: eyebrows will be dry and itchy. Do not scratch, rub or pick at them. They may start to scab, crack or flake off. Eyebrows will look patchy and uneven during healing process. It is absolutely normal and crucial to leave them alone. Please DON’T PANIC.
  • Day 7 – 10: scabs should be all gone (some can take up to 3 weeks) Sometimes eyebrows will appear as if there is no color. The remaining color has absorbed under the layer of skin and in the following week it will resurface as skin cells repair.
  • Week 3 – 4: eyebrows will appear their true color. Eyebrow might still look patchy or have an uneven shape. Some rare cases the pigment does not retain well. (In this case please visit www.AdvanceMicroblading.com and look for question #18 in FAQ.)
  • Week 4 – 6: come back for a touch up. Any small corrections can be made at this visit.

Please Note: Subjective effect on different individuals, e.g. skin types that affect the attachment of color. Most clients will need two sessions; some will only need one and some will need a third touch-up to complete the look at an additional charge.
