How to prepare for the appointment :
Avoid Blood-Thinning Medications: To minimize bleeding during the procedure, it's generally recommended to avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and certain herbal supplements for at least a week before your appointment.
However, always consult with your healthcare provider before stopping any medication.
Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine: It's advisable to abstain from consuming alcohol and caffeine for at least 24 hours before your session. These substances can thin your blood and increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.
Avoid Sun Exposure and Tanning: Protect your skin from excessive sun exposure and tanning beds for at least one week before the procedure. Sunburned or tanned skin can be more sensitive during the treatment and may affect the color outcome.
Avoid Facial Treatments: Avoid any facial treatments, chemical peels, laser therapies, or similar procedures on or around the brow area for at least two weeks prior. These treatments can irritate the skin and compromise the healing process.
Do Not Wax or Thread the Eyebrows: Refrain from waxing, threading, or plucking your eyebrows for at least one week before. I will shape and design your eyebrows based on your natural hair growth, and it's best to leave them untouched for accurate measurements.
Avoid Retinol and Glycolic Acid Products:
Refrain from using retinol, glycolic acid, and other exfoliating skincare products on your brow area for at least one week before the procedure. These products can increase skin sensitivity and interfere with pigment absorption.
Inform the Artist of Any Medical Conditions or Medications: It's important to inform your microblading artist of any underlying medical conditions, allergies, or medications you're currently taking. This information can help them ensure your safety during the procedure.
Arrive with Clean Skin: On the day of your appointment, make sure your brow area is clean and free of makeup, creams, or oils.
Avoid applying any skincare products to the area to ensure a clear canvas for the process.
