Thanks for booking with Blade – I am excited to transform your brows!
Prior to your appointment, I would like to familiarize you with what to expect. Because no one likes nasty brow surprises.
I will match the colour of your hair however I may use a slightly darker shade. Why? Because the colour will fade 1-2 shades lighter once it is healed. Furthermore, your brows will look quite dark for the first few days – this is all part of the normal healing process.
Please do not wax/shape/tint the brows unless this is done at least 2-3 days prior to your microblading session
Botox should be done at least two weeks prior to your microblading session
Avoid excessive sun exposure, and strong facials within a week of your appointment. These can aggravate your skin and make it more sensitive.
Avoid drinking coffee on the day of your microblading session
No alcohol within 24 hours of your microblading session
No fish oil capsules within 24 hours of your microblading session
No microblading if you are on blood thinners (e.g. Warfarin, Aspirin)
(Sorry about the no coffee guys!). These substances will thin your blood and make you more prone to bleeding, but will also prevent retention of pigment being implanted and therefore affecting the outcome. If you are taking blood thinners, you will need a letter from your GP stating they are happy for you to stop the medication for one week prior to your appointment, and you may recommence the medication the day following your microblading.
After the procedure is complete, I will apply Bepanthen antiseptic ointment. You will then need to keep your brows dry for seven days, which means avoiding washing them during this time, and avoiding any exercise that may cause sweating, as well as spas and saunas. You can shampoo as normal, just dab your brows dry with a handy towel afterward. Try to wash your hair 2-3 times only for that first week. Dry healing gives microblading a crisper finish.
I will provide you with detailed information on the day and further aftercare instructions. The information provided applies once again when you come for your touch up session 4-6 weeks later.
Payment: EFTPOS, Cash, Bank Transfer, or Credit Card (3% bank surcharge).
Look forward to seeing you, thanks for choosing BLADE.
