PRE CARE PROCEDURES
MICROBLADING PRECARE: General Considerations
Below is a list of precare 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 (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…must avoid using for thirty days before and after procedure as well. Note: This can cause the pigments to fade prematurely even after waiting the thirty day timeframe.ea.
3 Weeks Prior To Your Microblading Appointment
• No chemical peels, glycolic acid products or any other similar products.
• All antibiotics must be finished.
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/or spray tans. Tanning will exfoliate and thus take color with it as it fades. Individuals with a tan or burn on day of 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 and 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 caffinated beverage.
• Do NOT workout or sweat. Body heat expands the pores.
Do NOT apply moisturizer to forehead if having eyebrows done.
• On the day of the operation come in comfortable cloths and I recommend wearing dark clothing. Please avoid wearing white or light clothing.
