Before your Treatment
Please read through the before and aftercare pages before setting your consultation appointment to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for permanent makeup. Children, guests or pets are not allowed to come to your appointment.
Prior to your permanent cosmetic enhancement think about the look that you wish to achieve. As experts in the field of color analysis and makeovers, we ensure that the correct colors and styles are chosen for you, however you are part of the decision-making process.
Semi-permanent cosmetic enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results, you will be required to return for at least enhancement procedure 4 to 8 weeks after the initial application.
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 fourteen days.
Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, you are advised not to make social plans on the day of your enhancement.
Please wear your normal make-up to your enhancement appointment.
Do not take aspirin or Ibuprofen 2 days prior to and after your enhancement.
Do not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor.
Do not take alcohol or caffeine 2 days prior to and after your enhancement.
A patch test will be available upon request and will need to happen at least 2 days prior to first session. If you do not request it, you will need to sign that you are waiving this patch test or the procedure cannot be performed.
Do not use Retin A skincare products close to the enhancement area 1 month prior to and after your procedure.
Do not use AHA skincare products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to and after your procedure.
The National Blood Service does not accept donations of blood for 1 year after a semi-permanent cosmetic enhancement.
Waxing treatments should be performed no less than 3 days prior to your enhancement.
IPL laser hair removal should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your enhancement.
Electrolysis treatments should be performed no less than 5 days prior to your enhancement.
Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your enhancement.
After your treatment
The area treated may show redness, swelling and bruising for a few days after the treatment – this is quite normal.
Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed. A 4-8 week healing time is required before any more work can be undertaken.
In order to let your brows, heal well, avoid water on the brow area, makeup to the brow area, the gym, sauna or pool for 7 days.
Avoid all sun exposure until your semi-permanent has began to heal. Once the area has healed, approximately one week, use a sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color fading.
Strong chemicals or glycolic acid/peels of any kind may cause the pigment to lighten. Always telephone and check with your consultant if in any doubt..
Do not pick or pull at the treated area as it will result in pigment loss. You will go through three healing phases: 1-heal, 2-peel, 3-fade/almost disappear, 4-final result.
You may notice whiteness or blanching around the area, this is quite normal and will subside within 12 hours. If you find any lymphatic fluid or blood weeping you can gently clean the area with saline, cool boiled water and gauze, blotting gently dry to remove any moisture.
You may experience redness around the area, which is normal due to your body reacting to the semi-permanent cosmetic procedure.
With clean hands and a cotton bud you may apply a fine layer of A&D cream to the area. Repeat this procedure up to 3 times a day if the area feels tight. Be advised that the more products that you apply, may affect the retention of your semi-permanent makeup.
After the fine scabbing has sloughed away you will see a different hue to the color implanted. Sometimes it even looks like the color has disappeared but it will come back out, that’s just part of the healing process.
Giving Blood – The Red Cross have suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following treatment.
MRI Scans – This procedure shows up as an artifact on the scan. Some clients may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist.
Injectable – Dermal fillers and Botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. The client should be advised that injectable should be carried out after a microblading procedure has healed and not prior.
Laser /Pulsed Light – Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments can cause color change – it is important to advise the therapist that you have had microblading procedure as this cannot be rectified with another microblading procedure.
Color Refreshing – To keep your new brows looking at their best it is recommended that you have a color refresh procedure every 6-24 months based on personal preference. Any sessions after 24 months will be considered a new procedure and not an enhancement session.
