After your Treatment
The treated area may show redness and swelling and the appearance of dark and intense color is perfectly normal. Additional treatments cannot be carried out until the area has completely healed. A 4/6 week cure time is required before more work can be carried out. Waxing treatments must be performed 15 days after the procedure. Laser -IPL hair removal or Electrolysis treatments should be performed at least one month after the procedure. Strong chemicals or glycolic acid of any kind can easily cause the pigment to discolor. Always contact and your advisor in case of doubt. You will go through three phases of healing:
1 ‐ Healing, 2 ‐ Peeling, and 3 ‐ Fading.
Apply A + D ointment as mentioned above.
Post-procedure care for a long-lasting result and beautiful.
Keep the area clean, you can apply mild soap and water. Do not use a cloth or sponge to remove soap. Just splash with water.
Do not use cleansing creams, acne cleansers, or astringents. Use a mild soap and natural.
Apply the post-treatment cream (A + D ointment) with your hands washed. Use A + D ointment every 2 hours for 5 days to prevent the area from the procedure is dry.
Do not rub, rub or scratch the layer of fluids that forms in the area treated during the healing process. Let it flake off on its own. Taking it out before it has cured alone can erase the color.
Do not use any type of makeup near the procedure area including mascara for eyeliner, lipstick for lip pigmentation, concealer or foundation for the brow area. For at least 5 days.
1. Are you certified?
Yes, I am certified as a semi permanent makeup artist.
2. Does it hurt?
Each has a different level of sensitivity so topical anesthetics are applied before and during treatment to alleviate any sensations or discomfort. Some clients naturally feel more sore than others.
3. Is it safe?
Absolutely. Sterilized, needles and disposable materials are used during the process.
4. Will it get inflamed?
It will not ignite. You may have slightly red skin around your eyebrows, but this will not last more than 1 hour.
5. Will I need a touch up?
Most likely. One week after your first treatment the color will fade significantly and in the next four to six weeks it may continue to fade up to 50%. This is considered an extremely positive event, as it gives you time to reflect on its shape and color. After this period your follow-up appointment takes place. At this point the changes you would like to make are discussed.
6. How long does it last?
Approximate duration for Microblading will be 18 to 24 months. Approximate duration for Shading will be 12 to 18 months.
7. Why do I need a touch-up if this is semi-permanent?
Because the pigments they use to carry out the procedures are organic with a 100 vegetable base and these in turn tend to have less adherence than a tattoo ink. Cell renewal processes in normal organisms occur every 28 days and this affects the color and brightness of the procedure.
8. How long does it take?
The procedure takes about two hours, sometimes longer, sometimes less. Please allow 3 hours of availability for your appointment.
9. Is it necessary to take a day off work?
No, it is not necessary. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after the procedure.
10. How long does it take to heal?
The healing time varies from individual to individual. Usually it takes about a week to ten days.
11. What is the process?
Semi permanent makeup eyebrows is a two-stage treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and then a touch-up between 4 to 6 weeks. After taking your before photo, a preliminary design will be drawn with a pencil so you will get an idea of the shape. (There is no reason to try to make the eyebrows identical or try to match a photo of the eyebrows of some reference because the face is not totally symmetrical, it must be realistic with your expectations and its optical structure.
12. What can't I do after the procedure?
No swimming, no sauna, no Turkish and no long exposures in the sun.
13. I have heard from some clients that they just don't retain pigment even after a few visits. Could this happen?
Yes, it does happen sometimes and it is true! Some skins can react to the trauma of Micropigmentation and the skin can try to expel the foreign body of the pigment producing an extreme crust, so they eventually fall off taking all the pigment with it. Allergy (PPD) paraphenylenediamine allergy, is a known autoimmune condition
14. Can you guarantee your work?
Unfortunately I can't. How the skin will react is different for everyone and many factors must be taken into consideration; Skin type, age, scarring, diet, stress levels, facial products used, etc. all play a key role in how the pigment will be carried out, so it is important to know that I will do my best. My, your face is of the utmost importance and I will act according to my experience and knowledge to offer you an impeccable result. However, there are no guarantees in this industry. Please think it over very hard before deciding to go for it.
15. What if I don't like it?
Although Microblading is considered to be semi-permanent, the procedure allows flexibility for color or shape change to some extent. However, I will work closely with you to support that you are satisfied with the proposed technique. If you don't like the decision you have made, the touch-up may be canceled and the pigmented area will naturally fade over time. If you are 100% sure that you can benefit from this procedure, please opt for a more temporary option.
