PRE-CARE/POST-CARE

Very Important Instructions!

PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY PRIOR TO BOOKING!

Microblading is performed in two separate sessions.  The first session typically takes 3 to 3 ½ hours.  The second session or touch-up typically takes anywhere from 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.  The time variation is due to every client’s pigment retention being different. Please plan accordingly as microblading is not something that can be, nor do you want it to be rushed.  It is possible that some clients may require a third session.  If a third session is required additional fees will be charged.  

All clients must be a minimum of 18 years old.  No exceptions. If Jaalah did NOTdo your original Eyebrows, she will not do Microblading on you, unless your old Eyebrow color is 80-90% GONE. It is possible that color correction may be needed prior to Microblading. If you still are not sure if you are a candidate for Microblading, due to previous permanent makeup or Microblading, you may be able to email pictures of your face and brows to Jaalah or you may have to call and schedule a consultation.  If you have had Permanent Makeup previously done and fail to tell us, Jaalah reserves the right to refuse service and may recommend removal and you will forfeit your $50 booking fee for the lost appointment time. 
ALL BOOKING FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. If you miss your booked appointment, another $50 booking fee will have to be paid prior to any new appointments being scheduled.  No Exceptions!

Please remember that no two sides of the face are the same.  Perfection is our GOAL, but please note that nothing is “PERFECT.”  We do not use the “P” word when doing Permanent Makeup. Sisters, Not twins is used universally in this field.

**No one other than the actual CLIENT and Microblading Technician will be allowed in the room during the Microblading Procedure.  No Exceptions**

Eyebrows
If you have oily skin, your results WILL appear softer (eyebrows can look solid) in appearance and may require additional procedures.

Dark Skin types please note that your permanent makeup will not appear as bold as lighter skin types. (Indian, African American, Filipino, etc.)

Lighter color brows, such as red and blonde, may fade faster than darker brows over time.  It is possible you may require more touch ups if this occurs (individual results vary).

Plan on scheduling your touch-up within 4-6 weeks

Come to your appointment with your eyebrows penciled the way you like them (optional) if you like & bring your eyebrow pencil with you

Clients with darker skin (Indian, African American, Filipino, etc.), Please know that the Hair Strokes  WILL NOT appear as defined or as dark as lighter skin types due to the skin color already being naturally darker.

IF YOU ARE USING AN EYELASH GROWTH SERUM (Latisse) OR SIMILAR PRODUCT ON YOUR EYEBROWS, YOU MUST DISCONTINUE USE 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO PROCEDURE AND CAN NOT USE UNTIL 2 WEEKS AFTER PROCEDURE.

Microblading Eyebrows Post-Care: 

When you leave our office your hair strokes are intact.  That is the job of the technician.  There ARE NO Guarantees made as to how your body will heal them.  If they fade, blur or not take good, that is the RESULT of YOUR skin, lifestyle…….not a result of the techniques or the technician.  No one knows how the clients’ skin will heal. This is a potential risk all clients take when consenting to this procedure.  NOT everyone is a candidate for this procedure.  

MICROBLADING EYEBROWS IS A “DRY HEAL”.  DO NOT GET WET AND NO SWEATING FOR 10 DAYS
The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red and irritated, flake or scab unevenly.  The areas may appear very light under the areas of peeling or flaking. The pigment will oxidize and become a little darker as the healing process continues over the next 30 days. This is all 100% normal.  DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss! The results vary person to person and some clients may heal quicker than others or could take longer.  You need to be patient and let the procedure have adequate healing over the course of the next 30 days.

COMPLETELY avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure.  Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyper pigmentation and scarring.  Avoid pools, saunas, steam rooms, steamy hot showers and/or steamy hot baths for 3 weeks. Avoid sweating for a full 10 days. Any physical effort, gym, hot weather, or any other activity that may cause sweating through or on the brows will cause the “hair strokes” to blur under the skin. There is no fixing this. Wash your face with makeup wipes so no water drips on the brows, and no washing hair in shower as the brows might get wet.  So just use dry shampoo or go to a salon or lay back in your bath to wash your hair so your eyebrows do not get wet for the first 10 days. Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 10 days.  NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for two weeks.  NO facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks. After 10 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color from fading. Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.  Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels and Microderms around the brow area once healed.  AVOID ANY SKINCARE THAT HAS THE WORDS “ACID” “RETIN A” “GLYCOL” ON THE AREA TREATED! Look in your foundations and primers too. These are often in things that say “long lasting” or “Forever”

EYEBROWS- Typical Effects
Day1-2:  The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.
Day3:   Eyebrows will start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Natural exfoliation will begin.  Don’t exfoliate yourself.
Day4:  The skin begins to flake- peeling from the outside edges first.
Day 5:  Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and greyer for 2-4 weeks until color clarifies.

AVOID ANY SKINCARE THAT HAS THE WORDS “ACID” “RETIN A” “GLYCOL” ON THE AREA TREATED!

-Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 10%-50% or more.  At your touch-up we will fine tune any area that has faded too much.  But, even then, there is no guarantee that the pigment will heal better.  Healing is specific to each client.​​
