Microblading is a treatment where pigment is deposited into the epidermis of the eyebrow. Small incisions are created using a very precise blade. A numbing cream is applied to the eyebrow area prior to treatment. Pigment is then deposited into the incisions, creating a natural hair like effect. Diana’s approach with this technique is to create the most natural looking brow.
Consultations are required for ALL MICROBLADING appointments, as not everyone is a candidate. Diana may request an initial grow out process prior to your microblading appointment.
It’s best not to have previously tattooed or microbladed brows, there can be exceptions and this can be discussed during consultation. Clients may want to consider a removal treatment prior.
Please read below as these are reasons to avoid microblading:
If you have any serious health issues
If you have problems healing or have to take antibiotics for small procedures
If you are currently using Roaccutane
Other conditions - if you are pregnant, nursing, have haemophilia, a heart condition, it is NOT recommended that you have microblading as this puts you in a high risk position.
If none of the above apply to you then you’re ready for your microblading treatment, here are some tips to help prep for it!
Avoid using Retinol/Retin-A/AHA products 10 days prior to your appointment
Avoid botox 30 days before and after your appointment
Avoid chemical peels, laser facials/resurfacing 30 days before and after your appointment
No Roaccutane within 6 months of your appointment
Avoid consuming caffeine before your appointment
Avoid taking aspirin before your appointment
No blood thinners
Avoid vitamin E, fish oil, and alcohol 24 hours before your appointment (these will cause your blood to thin and make it harder for pigment to stay in the skin)
Here are the rules for taking care of your brows! Follow as best as possible, as aftercare is very important for the longevity of your brows.
In the morning gently wipe the brow area with a SMALL amount of warm water with a cotton bud. Blot your brows with a tissue to ensure the area is fully dry. Then apply a THIN layer of healing ointment 1-2 times a day for 14 days. DO NOT get your brows wet at all during this time, especially in the first 3 days. Excessive moisture in the area will not allow the pigment to bond to the skin properly.
Immediately after the procedure your brows will appear bold and crisp. Over the next 3 days they will become darker, bolder, and more defined. This is all part of the healing process and they won't stay this way. Eventually scabs will form and lightly flake off revealing the pigment beneath. During this stage the pigment can appear dull, faded or even look as if its disappeared. DO NOT WORRY! As the skin regenerates the pigment will start to settle and re-appear.
Showering during your healing period (a full 14 days) can be difficult because you'll want to avoid soaking your brows in water. You do not want to get soap or shampoo in your brows as this can be detrimental to the bonding process. I recommend not getting your head wet at all for the first 3 days, then after that a quick pass through the water is fine as long as you avoid it directly on your brows and dry your face immediately after.
During the healing period you must avoid the following:
DO NOT apply cosmetics in the brow area for two weeks
DO NOT pick at any scabs that form on the brow, picking can cause pre-mature loss of pigment
DO NOT exercise for at least one week, and second week only light exercise
DO NOT go swimming or soak your brows
AVOID sweating or going in any saunas
