Microbalding Pre-Procedure Advice
Please read the following advice carefully and sign at the end
·· Microblading brow procedure normally requires multiple treatment sessions. For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one re-touch appointment. This will take place between 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. Those with corrective work may require an additional touch up. Please be aware that color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately after the initial procedure and will reduce by 30-50%.
·· Although numbing cream is used during the procedure, slight sensitivity/discomfort may still be felt by sensitive clients. Delicate or sensitive skin may be red and/or swollen after the procedure.
·· Please do not drink alcohol or caffeine 24 hours prior to the treatment.
·· Where possible, try to avoid the following herbs and spices prior to your appointment:
Black pepper, Cardamom, any member of the Zingiberaceae (Ginger) family, Cayenne, Cinnamon, Garlic, Horseradish, Mustard
·· A patch test will be performed, unless waived by client.
·· Any brow shaping using waxing should be performed at least a week before the procedure. ·· Electrolysis treatment should be undergone no less than 2 weeks before the procedure.
·· AHA products and retinoids should be avoided no less than 2 weeks prior to the procedure.
·· Exfoliating treatments such as microdermabrasion should not be performed within 2 weeks prior to procedure. ·· Chemical and laser peels should be avoided no less than 6 weeks prior to procedure.
·· Please wait 2-3 weeks if you have had Botox injections before microblading.
Topical Anesthetic Advice
·· Allergic reactions can occur from any anesthetics used during the procedure. If you do suffer from an allergic reaction, you should contact your doctor immediately. Allergic reaction response may show through redness, swelling, rash, blistering, dryness, or any other symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.
·· Numbness – We cannot accept responsibility if the area to be treated does not respond to the numbing cream. Each individual is different according to skin type. Some clients report the area to be completely numb, while others may experience some discomfort.
·· Procedure – For microblading procedure, a numbing cream/gel is used. The products are formulated to be perfectly safe and can be purchased over the counter from any pharmacy/chemist. The anesthetic is placed over the treatment area for 20-30 minutes then carefully removed prior to treatment. As a result of the treatment, combined with the use of the anesthetic, you can expect to experience some redness/swelling that can last 1-4 days. You should always follow your post-procedure advice and aftercare for the best results.
