Those who have healing disorders, uncontrolled high blood pressure or mitral valve disorder.
Those who are taking any skin medication like Accutane and/or steroids, which thin and make the skin more sensitive. Please wait 6 months after getting off any skin medication before scheduling your appointment.
Those who are on any AHA’s or OTC creams for exfoliating, anti-aging, tone correcting or fading. They will discolor the microbladed eyebrows so make sure you stop them at least 2 weeks before scheduling your appointment.
Those who have had eyelifts done or blepharoplasties, please wait 3 months at least before getting microblading done.
Those with a dark previous eyebrow tattoo, microblading or permanent make-up. The tattoo, microblading or permanent make-up must be faded by at least 80% or be light enough for us to be able to microblade hairstrokes or cover it fully with shading. If you have a previous eyebrow tattoo, permanent make-up or microblading, please send us an email with a picture of your eyebrows with no make-up on, so we can evaluate.
