BROW TATTOO / MICROBLADDING PRE-PROCEDURE  PREPARATION


It all starts with a good canvas! The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated. Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure:

  • Do not pick / tweeze / wax or have electrolysis performed one week before the procedure

  • Do not tan two weeks prior to the service, or have a sunburned face

  • Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure

  • Do not work out the day of the procedure

  • Do not have Botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners)

  • Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure. In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:

  • Do not drink alcohol 24 - 48 hours before your tattoo

  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure 

  • Do not take an Aspirin or Ibuprofen for pain relief (these also thin the blood)

BROW TATTOO / MICROBLADING POSSIBLE RISKS, AND COMPLICATIONS

  • PAIN: There can be pain even after the topical anesthetic has been used. Anesthetics work better on some people than others. 

  • INFECTION: Infection is not typical when all aftercare instructions are followed. The areas treated must be kept clean and only freshly cleaned hands should touch the areas. See “After Care” sheet for instructions on care. 

  • UNEVEN PIGMENTATION: This can result from poor healing, infection, bleeding or many other causes. Your Perfecting Touch up session will likely correct any uneven appearance. 

  • ASYMMETRY: Every effort will be made to create symmetry but our faces are not symmetrical so adjustments may be needed during the follow up session to correct any unevenness. 

  • EXCESSIVE SWELLING OR BRUISING: Some people bruise and swell more than others. Ice packs may help and the bruising and swelling typically disappears with 1-5 days. Some people don’t bruise or swell at all.

  • ANESTHESIA: Topical anesthetics are used to numb the area to be tattooed. Lidocaine, Prilocaine, Benzocaine, Tetracaine and Epinephrine in a cream or gel form are typically used. If you are allergic to any of these please inform me. 

  • MRI: Because pigments used in permanent cosmetic procedures contain inert oxides, a low level magnet may be required if you need to be scanned by an MRI machine. Although new technology helps with this you still must inform your technician of any tattoos or permanent cosmetics. 

  • ALLERGIC REACTION: There is a small possibility of an allergic reaction to any of the products used during the procedure.
