The following must be avoided during the first fourteen days following your procedure:

Hot sauna, hot bath, or jacuzzi
Sun tanning or salon tanning
Any laser or chemical treatment, peelings, and or any creams containing Retin A or Glycolic Acid on the face or neck
Picking, peeling or scratching of the micro-pigmentated area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment. ( if needed apply a thin layer of Aquaphor )
Performing task related to household cleaning such as garage or basement where there is a lot of airborne debris
Spicy foods will increase sweating
Smoking or drinking alcohol in excess may lead to slow healing of wounds
Driving in open air vehicles ( convertibles , boats, bicycles, motorcycle, etc. )

Putting your face under the shower
What to expect during and after your microblading session
Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin, and had not yet settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on the cotton swab, as this is excess pigment and or body fluid that is naturally exiting your skin.
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the pigment color is fading too quickly, however, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.
Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure might cause the color of the pigment to fade more quickly.
After 8 weeks your skin is fully healed and ready for your touch- up ( perfecting session )
