PMU Before/After Care

Following the proper before and after care for PMU services including microblading, powder brow and lip blush is essential to have the best experience before, during and after your service! Please review this page and reach out to us with any questions, you do not need to wait for your appointment to have all the answers you need. 

Before Care

  1. Avoid plucking, waxing, and threading your brows for a couple weeks leading up to your appointment, the more hair we have to work with, the better. Any hair that falls outside of your desired shape will be removed at the appointment.

  2. Do not drink stimulating beverages such as caffeine, alcohol or energy drinks the night before or day of your treatment.

  3. No sun tanning for three days prior.

  4. No exercise for 24 hours before your appointment.

  5. Avoid any skin rejuvenation treatments for at least four weeks before your appointment.

  6. DO NOT take aspirin, ibuprofen, niacin, vitamin E, fish oil (omega-3) or CoQ10 for 3 days leading up to your appointment.

  7. You can wear makeup to your appointment if desired. I will remove all makeup on and around brows at your arrival.

After Care

  1. Please allow freshly microbladed brows to heal for 7-10 days. It is normal for eyebrows to look patchy during the healing process.

  2. Don't be worried if it looks like some of the strokes have disappeared, it takes up to 4 weeks for the pigment to fully settle in to the skin and resurface to its final color.

  3. Keep brows dry for the first 24 hours

  4. Blot eyebrows throughout day 1, every 1-2 hrs (this will absorb any moisture or lymph if there is any).

  5. Put a fresh pillowcase on your pillow after your appointment. 

  6. Wash brows gently with antibacterial soap once a day for a week

  7. Apply ointment up to twice daily the first 7 days. 

  8. DO NOT pick or scratch the area during the first couple weeks. 

  9. NO makeup or skin care directly on the area for the first week.

  10. DO NOT use retinol, Vitamin A or acidic product directly on or near the brow area.

  11. NO sweating for 7 days and NO sun/tanning bed exposure for 2 weeks.

  12. NO long-term exposure to water in the first week (avoid swimming pools, saunas, running face under water in the shower, etc.)
