Microshading / Microblading
Microshading is a gentler version of microblading, the semi-permanent makeup technique for sparse, light-colored or over-plucked brows.
Unlike microblading, microshading fills in thin brows with small dots rather than natural hair strokes, which is safer for sensitive or oily skin.
pregnancy or breastfeeding
excessive sebum production from the skin (oily skin)
overly sensitive skin
allergies to topical anesthetics or to tattoo ink
rash in the area like eczema or psoriasis
a previous tattoo in the area that has not faded.
Touch up visits should be scheduled between 30-45 days post procedure. All permanent make up procedures are a two-step process. Results are not determined until touch up application is completed. Failure to follow these instructions may result in pigment color loss and longevity.
Things to know
Keep in mind that semi-permanent make up makes superficial cuts into skin which may cause some scabbing. We recommend that you do not touch your brows or peel the scabs. Allow the scabs to naturally fall. Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers, they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.
We highly recommend
Use Aquaphor following the procedure to optimize the results of color retention and longevity. Apply it 3-5 times daily until the procedure area has healed. If it needs to be cleaned always use a clean cotton swab and not your fingertip, wash your hands before cleaning with an antibacterial mild soap, dry, and reapply Aquapor.
Showering / Bathing
Before bathing, gently apply a light coating of Aquaphor on the procedure area using a clean cotton swab. Continue this regime until the procedure area has completely healed.
No water, sweating, make up, tinting or lashes or brows, sun, soap, sauna, Jacuzzi, swimming in chlorine pools or in the recreational bodies of water, contact with animals, gardening for 7-10 days, (until area is completely healed) post procedure and after all touch ups.
Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area while it is healing (pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue). try to sleep on a satin pillowcase while the procedure area is healing.
Gently apply broad spectrum facial sunscreen to the treated area has healed to prevent future fading of pigment color. Do not get peels or use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area. (Example: Glycolic, Lactic acids).
Can I wear make up after the procedure?
No. You ought not to apply any make-up on the eyebrow area if you have gone through microblading/microshading procedure. Right after the procedure, the outer layer of the skin is open and as days go by scabbing of the skin appears. We have to patiently wait for 10-14 days for the wound to totally heal. The Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.
Can I do exercise after the procedure?
Normally, it takes between 7-14 days for the skin to heal from the initial procedure. While healing, avoid heavy sweating or activities like swimming or running. Exercise expands the pores and produces sweat that may affect the healing process. Also damp conditions also attract dirt and contaminants.
If you experience any itching, swelling, blistering or any other complications post-procedure, stop using product and call your technician immediately. You may be allergic to the after care product you are using. If you have the excessive redness, swelling or tenderness or any red streaks going from the procedure, elevated temperature, or purulent drainage from the procedure site, contact your physician as the area may be infected and you may need to seek medical care.
