Things to Avoid Before Your Procedure

There are some things you should avoid during the days leading up to your procedure, including:

  • Direct exposure to the sun — you do not want a sunburn or to be peeling at the time of the procedure as this may cause extra irritation to the area. Dry or peeling skin will also affect the color of the tattoo and may cause it to be uneven.
  • Avoid medications that can cause the blood to thin for at least 48-72 hours before the procedure — these include Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen.
  • Avoid fish oil and any hair or nail supplements for 48 hours before as well.
  • Do not drink coffee or anything with caffeine the day of the procedure.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before.

Things to Do the Day of the Procedure

Your artist will guide you through the steps of what to do the day of the procedure. A reputable microblading artist will make sure to thoroughly clean the area to prevent irritation or infection. However, you should use a gentle cleanser to clean the eyebrow area before going in. You may even consider lightly exfoliating the night before, but do not over exfoliate as it could leave the skin thin and unprotected.

After gently removing dirt and bacteria from the skin, you should properly moisturize! This is an especially important step that people often forget. Adding moisture adds a protective layer to the skin and makes it healthy. Overly dry skin may not take the color as well tends to be more irritable.

What to Do After the Procedure

Post procedure care is pertinent to your results. The following are some definite dos following microblading:

  • Keep ointment such as Aquaphor on the area for 7 days following the procedure to make sure it is protected and that it properly heal. The ointment will provide a protective layer.
  • Do not scrub or pick at the brow area even if it scabs.
  • Do not wear makeup until your artist says it’s OK.

Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know before microblading.


Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo, used for the purpose of reconstructing sparse eyebrows or simply to enhance already full brows. The proper ink is chosen and mixed to fit your exact skin tone to look the most natural and realistic. We then create small, hair-like strokes to perfectly mimic natural and gorgeous eyebrows.


Healed microblading results last anywhere from 1-2 years, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, results usually fade a little faster than those with dryer skin types. Touch-ups are required to maintain the microbladed look. First touch-up is included.

Microbladed brows typically take 6 weeks to fully heal. Within the first week the pigment will appear much darker, and your eyebrows will look very bold. Do not worry! This is part of the healing process and it means that you are healing properly. After the first week the eyebrows will begin to get lighter, as by now the scabbing should be taking place. This is also normal! Around week 2, most of the scabbing should be done, and you will begin to see your full and natural eyebrow shape come through. Let it heal naturally, and only begin to wash your eyebrows with a mild foamy anti-bacterial soap after 14 days.


There should be absolutely NO picking at your eyebrows for the first 10 days. The first 10 days are the most crucial for having healthy healed eyebrows. Let the epithelial crust and natural scabbing occur on its own. After the first two weeks, you are allowed to begin washing them again. Try to keep the area as dry as possible in the first 10 days. Do not swim in fresh, salt, or chlorinated pool water for at least 2-4 weeks following your procedure. Limit sun exposure for 14 days following the procedure. For the first two weeks, avoid:Water, cleansers, creams, makeup, heavy sweating in the brow area, tanning and heavy sun exposure, Facials, facial fillers, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion.


Discomfort is minimal, although a numbing cream is applied to alleviate any discomfort.
