Bloodborne Pathogens Certification

Bloodborne Pathogens Certification

Natural Look by Eva is a premier microblading and eyebrow shading business that takes pride in our work and values our customers. We hold ourselves to a high standard. Safety in microblading is our overall safety goal. We do this by taking all the necessary steps in maintaining proper sanitation and safety. One example this is achieved is through acquiring the Bloodborne Pathogens Certification.

What Is A Bloodborne Pathogens Certification?

Before the discussion of what a Bloodborne Pathogens Certification is. And why you should care, let’s understand what bloodborne pathogens are. According to the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) factsheet. “Bloodborne Pathogens are infectious microorganisms present in blood that can cause disease in humans. Workers that are exposed to bloodborne pathogens are at risk for serious or life-threatening illnesses.” Bloodborne pathogens can spread by touching someone who is infected or their secretions. Or coming into contact with either a contaminated object or person.

Pathogens can spread between people of close proximity and through medical equipment.

How Does It Affect Me?

Consequently, not all states or locations require the Bloodborne Pathogens Certification by law. In other words, this means you need to be aware of any institution or service providing direct physical contact with clients. As well as what standards they are meeting to ensure a healthy environment. Our certification status should give you peace of mind that you are in the best of care. 

The certification is updated yearly through on-going training. This is regardless of whether one has already passed the requirements before or for the first time. We stay up-to-date with industry standards through this on-going training.  

Natural Look By Eva cares about our customers, we feel that it is your right to know what the potential hazards are. According to www.bloodbornepathogentraining.com, examples of other types of businesses that obtain certification are “Physicians, Nurses, Medical Students, Healthcare Workers, Paramedics, Firemen, Policemen, Emergency and First Responders, Teachers, School Staff, Tattoo Artists, Body Piercers, Permanent Makeup Artists, Cleaning/Janitorial Staff, Crime Scene Cleanup, etc.”

If infected by bloodborne pathogens, the severity of cases can potentially range from serious to life-threatening. Therefore, we take this matter so seriously. We do not take any risks when it comes to following guidelines and requirements set to protect customers. Natural Look by Eva takes extra measures of preventative care. We do this from beginning to end. Most importantly, we are trained to handle any situation that may arise. In other words, you can rest assured and know that you’re in good hands! 

How We Provide A Safe and Clean Environment

Therefore, when we provide microblading and shading services to clients, we take several steps and precautions to maintain a safe environment. Some of the standards include:

  • The usage of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, gowns, masks, and eye protection.
  • Cleaning, repairing and replacing equipment. 
  • Establish an exposure control plan.
  • Update the exposure control plan annually.
  • Implement the use of universal precautions.
  • Identify and use engineering controls. For example, the disposal of the bloodborne pathogens from the workplace.
  • Provide information and training to professionals.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, gowns, masks, and eye protection.

Similarly, using proper hygiene techniques is key in preventing the transmission of bloodborne pathogens. One way that we keep things safe is by using one-time use, disposable equipment. In addition, we also use disinfectant agents and wipes. Our professionals always wear Personal protective equipment (PPE) when in close contact with a client. Such PPE includes gloves and masks. Therefore, immediately after disposing of used equipment, hand washing is necessary to prevent cross-contamination. 

Bloodborne Pathogens Certification. Why It’s Important

  • The Bloodborne Pathogens Certification guarantees a healthy work environment, patient privacy, and general safety for clients and professionals. 
  • The certification is a requirement in some geographic locations. Unfortunately, not all locations require it. This means that any business having a Bloodborne Pathogens Certification holds a high standard when it comes to providing a safe and clean environment.
  • Bloodborne Pathogens Certification updates annually. We do this by performing on-going training. This is not a one-time-only training. We are constantly learning better ways to serve you and keep you protected.

“Does microblading scab?”

“Does microblading scab?”

Can you develop microblading scabs? This is a commonly asked question and I hope to answer this question and more in this post. Here is everything you need to know about the healing process and our anti scabbing microblading aftercare.

Here at Natural Look By Eva, we know that the eyebrows are the most prominent feature and play a major part in the attractiveness of a person’s face. The thought of getting microblading scabs after the microblading procedure would scare off anyone. This is why our microblading procedure is so sought after. Our customers don’t get scabs during the healing process once they follow out aftercare instructions. See some of the wonderful microblading results!

How to prevent microblading scabs from happening?


I’ll send you home with everything you need to take care of your brows. Please read the aftercare tips below carefully! You must follow these instructions after your Natural Look By Eva Microblading session to avoid scabbing.

Step 1: Always make sure your hands are clean. Wash hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap before touching the treated area.

Step 2: Always wash the treated area with a sanitized, damp cloth using only distilled or filtered water, every hour for 24 hours (except when sleeping). Apply recommended ointment with a Q-tip after each wash. Before bedtime, apply the ointment and seal it by covering eyebrows with
saran wrap. In the morning, remove saran wrap, wash eyebrows, apply ointment again for the remainder of the 24 hours. Doing this will prevent scabbing.

Step 3: After the first 24 hours you can wash the treated area only twice a day and apply a very thin layer of ointment after each wash. The eyebrow needs time to breathe. Keep doing this for the next 13 days following the procedure.

Understanding the Healing Process To Prevent Microblading Scabs


Day 1 to 2: It is important to note that the first day of your freshly microbladed eyebrows are approximately 50% darker than they will be once they are fully healed. It’s normal to have some light to moderate swelling and/or redness during the first 2 days after the procedure is done.

The eyebrows will also start to exfoliate which will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow to flake away. Therefore, please refrain from picking the eyebrows at this stage.

Day 3 to 7: You’ll start to experience itchiness around the treated area. Please resist the urge to scratch them. You’ll start to develop texture on your eyebrows during this stage. You should start to notice flaking on the fourth day following the procedure. Flaking usually starts at the outer edges of the brow and then into the centre. Please allow your brows to heal naturally. You will also notice that your brows will start to look lighter after the first week.

Day 8 to 30: You should see the true colour of your brows by the 10th day. As your skin begins to heal, it will begin to solidify the tint of your brows. Please make sure to keep protecting your brows with the tips mentioned in this post. Afterwards, once the 30 days is over you can schedule an appointment to touch up the eyebrows 6 weeks after the procedure.

Microblading Healing Don’ts

  • Avoid direct shower water on the treated area for the first 14 days. Failure to do so will ruin the results of the procedure.
  • Avoid makeup, lotions, face creams and eyebrow pencils for the first 14 days. If you experience any scabbing, crusting or flaking after 14 days please DO NOT pick at it. Please let it exfoliate naturally.
  • Avoid pet grooming, gardening, dusting, or anything that causes dust, dirt and dander for a minimum of 72 hours.
  • Avoid tanning for the first 30 days after the procedure done.
  • Avoid getting chemical peels.
  • Avoid using glycolic acid, Retinol/Retinol or any bleaching products.
  • Avoid smoking. Smoking will affect your results and may cause the pigment to fade prematurely.

In conclusion, gorgeous microblading results can be best achieved by following the steps outlined above. Proper care and attention will prevent microblading scabbing. Book an appointment today.

Questions to Ask Your Artist During Your Microblading Consultation

You’ve done your research and googled most reputable, licensed microblading artists near you, and you even a couple in mind. However, you have one more step in the process… talking with your potential artist at your microblading consultation.

Therefore, knowing the right questions to ask during your microblading consultation can help you get to that last step in choosing the perfect microblading artist near you.

On treatment day, a good microblading consultation will have calmed all concerns, making you all the more comfortable in your informed decision. Here are my top four questions:

Am I a good candidate for microblading?

Before any discussion can begin on color or shape, discuss any factors that may be an issue in getting a microblading or ombre treatment done. Things like scaring, large pores, or a tendency to keloid scarring may impact your artists choice in microblading. As well, make your artist aware of ANY health concerns and issues at the start of your microblading consultation.

You can find any further risk factors I consider before treatments by clicking here to my F.A.Q section.

A knowledgeable and reputable microblading artist will definitely wish to touch on any and all risk factors before proceeding.

Can I see your portfolio?

An artist of any medium should have a portfolio of their work and present it proudly! This applies to microblading artists as well. Therefore, checking out a potential artists social media and website before hand is vital but don’t stop there, ask for their work!

Clear “before” and “after” photos, great reviews, and consistency of work is an absolute must.

So, not only will this provide a level of comfort but may also give you the client a better vision of what you desire for your end result. Discuss this and even view the portfolio with your artist, this should be a part of every good microblading consultation.

Will I get to “preview” my brows, during my microblading consultation, before it is permanent?

This should always be a “yes” from your potential microblading artist. In no way should your end result be a surprise. At this point, your artist should have asked his or her own questions and will be very clear on the desired shape and color. In addition, a professional microblading artist will pre-draw eyebrows during the microblading consultation before any treatment can begin.

What should I do before/after my treatment?

Keeping you well informed on what to expect is the goal of any good artist. In fact, this is the main point of your microblading consultation. While many (I included) have a well thought out and precise Pre/Post Care list available to current and potential clients, talking over considerations and how a microblading treatment will work within your busy life is another must. Your artist can go deeper into the whys of his or her list and spell out exactly why some things are avoided or recommended and how they apply to you specifically.

My passion is helping clients feel comfortable, informed, and happy from beginning to end. This starts with a great microblading consultation. I would love to start you on your journey by answering any questions on how we can take your eyebrows to the next level.
