Microblading Precare

MICROBLADING PRECARE: General Considerations

Below is a list of pre-care considerations ahead of your microblading appointment as well as things to consider broken down by how close to your appointment day you are. 

  • You MUST be off Accutane for at least one year. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Do NOT book your appointment before any major events.  For example vacation, social events, weddings, etc.
  • Come to the appointment with the look you would like to achieve (optional).
  • No botox prior to appointment for at least four weeks.
  • Stop taking Retin-A or Retinol.  These must be avoided for thirty days before and after the procedure. In addition, this can cause the pigments to fade prematurely even after waiting for 30-days.

3 Weeks Prior To Your Microblading Appointment

  • No chemical peels, glycolic acid products, or any other similar products.
  • Finish all antibiotics.

2 Weeks Prior To Your Microblading Appointment

  • Stop using growth serums like Latisse on eyebrows. This can not be started until two weeks after the procedure as well.
  • Stop sunbathing, using tanning beds, and spray tans. This is because tanning will exfoliate and thus take color with it as it fades. Individuals with a tan or burn on the day of the appointment will be asked to reschedule.
  • No eyebrow tinting or waxing.

1 Week Prior To Your Microblading Appointment

  • Stop taking fish oil and/or omega supplements.
  • Vitamin E, C K, or multivitamins.
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Ginger
  • Ginseng.

2-3 Days Prior To Your Microblading Appointment

  • Stop taking aspirin, niacin, ibuprofen, or other blood thinner medication.

1 Day Prior To Your Microblading Appointment

  • No Alcohol.
  • Drink a lot of water.

The Day Of Your Microblading Appointment

  • Do NOT drink coffee or any caffeinated beverage.
  • Do NOT workout or sweat. Body heat expands the pores.
  • Avoid applying moisturizer to the forehead if having eyebrows done.
  • On the day of the operation come in comfortable clothes. I recommend wearing dark clothing. Please avoid wearing white or light clothing.

Below Are Candidates That Are Not Eligible For Microblading

  • Heart Conditions/Pace Maker/Defibrillator (No exceptions)
  • If you have “keloid” scars, you need to ask your doctor before your appointment (raised scarring)
  • Hemophiliacs

If you are currently taking any of these medications, your body will be less efficient with clotting and therefore lead to bleeding. Therefore, it’s important I understand if you prescribed to any of these so please ask any questions you have about these.

  • Triflusal (Disgren)
  • Clopidogrel (Plavix)
  • Prasugrel (Effient)
  • Ticagrelor (Brilinta)
  • Ticlopidine (Ticlid)
  • Cilostazol (Pletal)
  • Vorapaxar (Zontivity)
  • Dipyridamole (Persantine)
  • Coumadin
  • Pradaxia (dibigatran)
  • Xarelto (rivaraxaban)
  • Eliquis (apixaban)
  • Savaysa (edoxaban)
