If you have oily skin, your results WILL appear softer (eyebrows can look solid) in appearance and may require additional procedures.
Plan on scheduling your touch-up within the first 6 months.
Come to your appointment with your eyebrows penciled the way you like them (optional) if you like & bring your eyebrow
pencil with you.

Microblading/Microshading - Aftercare
Lacey will provide you with ointment at the end of your appointment.
• MICROSHADING EYEBROWS IS A "PARTIAL DRY HEAL" DO NOT GET WET FOR 2 DAYS, AND NO SWEATING FOR 10 DAYS.
• Lightly wash brows with provided foam soap, rinse with water. Dab dry and use rice grain amount of balm over each brow in direction of hair strokes. Repeat for 8 days 1 to 2 times a day. Dab dry when getting out of shower.
• 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!
• 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 pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 3 weeks.
• Avoid sweating for a full 10 days. Any physical effort, gym, hot weather, any other activity that may cause sweating through or on
the brows will cause the "hairstrokes" to blur under the skin, there is no fixing this.
• 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, or once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the
color from fading.
• Eyebrow tinting or waxing 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 OR NEAR THE AREA TREATED! Look in your foundations and primers too, its in things that say "long lasting" or "Forever"
• Keep in mind anything you put on your face has the potential to travel 2 inches elsewhere on your skin.
Plan to book your first followup 8-10 weeks after your first session.
Day 1-2 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.
Day 3 Eyebrows will start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Natural exfoliation begins., do not exfoliate yourself.
Day 4 The skin begins to flake- peeling from the outside edges first.
Day 5 Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and greyer for 8 weeks until color clarifies.
AVOID ANY SKINCARE THAT HAS THE WORDS "ACID" "RETIN A" "GLYCOL" ON THE AREA TREATED!
