Do's and don'ts of Microblading

Updated: Aug 29, 2021


  1. Do your research when choosing a microblading artist. Remember, this is your face you’re trusting in the hands of another person.

  2. Do take the time to schedule a consultation with a microblading artist. They will do a wonderful job of explaining exactly what you’re going to experience in the actual session and help you decide the shape of your brows that best compliments your facial features


  1. Do take the time to read through the pre/post-care and contradiction paperwork we give you before your appointment. Following them will ensure the best results. If you do not follow the instructions we will refuse service for safety concerns!

  2. Do tell us of any medication or underlying medical issues you may have. Certain medications compromise the integrity of the skin or the blood. Certain medical issues can complicate the healing process of microblading.

  3. Do give up to 4 weeks for the microblading to heal after treatment. This means no dirt, sweat, or picking scabs!

  4. Don’t take any blood thinners.

  5. Don’t take any anti inflammatory medicines like advil, aleve, motrin, aspirin, or excedrin.

  6. Don’t take any oil supplements like fish oil, vitamin e oil, or primrose oil.

  7. Don’t take any magnesium.

  8. Don’t consume any alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine as it will interrupt the healing process.

  9. Don’t take any over the counter herbs without consulting with your microblading artist.

  10. Don’t use any acidic lotions or topicals. They are found in most makeup and skin care products. Any topical products that contain mineral oils, retinol, AHA, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid should be avoided.
