24 hours before your procedure avoid the following:

On the day of your appointment: 

  • Avoid a high quantity of caffeine

  • Avoid alcohol

  • Avoid exercise after treatment.

  • Wash your hair in the morning as you will need to avoid the shower after treatment for the first day of healing. Baths are recommended. 

  • You may be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle

  Please arrive 10 minutes before your treatment time. Late arrival can lead to your treatment being postponed to avoid upsetting other clients who may be waiting for their appointments after yours. Please allow a solid 2 and a half hour window for your appointment. This is not something that can be rushed. 

  If you are planning a hot holiday or vacation, please be aware that your brows need to heal before jetting off on your holiday. Please plan your microblading appointment at least 2 weeks before your holiday. Also to make sure that you wear SPF on your whole face including brows during your vacation because the sun does cause them to fade faster. When you return, please wait at least 2 weeks for your skin to accustom to our climate again before having a microblading application.

 Post Care

Please avoid the following after treatment for the next 7 to 10 days: 

  • Scented soaps and lotions

  • Saunas 

  • Hot yoga

  • Sleeping on your stomach or side

  • Facial Massage 

  • SPF (until fully healed)

  • Coconut Oil

  • Petroleum or Vaseline

  • Heavy sweating at the gym (sweat formed on brows can fade your healing colour)

  • Tanning

  • Makeup on brow area until fully healed

  • Picking a scabs if any appear

  • Swimming (pool chemicals can erode healing colour)

  • Outdoor activities such as gardening or golf can be resumed as long as treatment area remains clean, dry and out of the sun

  • There will be a little scabbing. Please do not itch the brow area or pull any scabs away


 A list of instructions and aftercare ointment/cream will be given the day of the appointment. Following the proper aftercare after the treatment is of great importance. If aftercare is not followed, it can result in losing up to 80% of drawn strokes. 

 Everyone's skin heals differently and most clients develop patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first application. There is no downtime associated with this treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. It is important to understand that this is a two part process and a touch up application is needed to complete the brows. Please be patient.


  It is important to realize that you will need a colour boost every 8 months to 2 years after the touch up appointment to maintain a fresh, natural appearance to your brow.  If you like your brows filled in with powder, pomades or a brow pencil, remember that microblading is a natural, hair like enhancement. For a more makeup like look, you may wish to consider adding manual shading or ombre shading to your microblading
