Lavishing Eyebows Microblading Waiver


What is Microblading?
Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a manual method which does not use a normal permanent makeup machine. Manual Microstroking, sometimes referred to as Brow Micropigmentation, Manual Technique, Hand Method Eyebrow Permanent Makeup, Feather Brows, 3D-6D Brows, Cosmetic Tattooing, originated in Asia and has become very popular in the last few years all across the world!

Microblading is done by using a unique hand instrument with a small row of very fine micro needles that deposit pigment into the surface of the dermis (skin) creating feathering strokes. The pigment is implanted in the basal membrane, which divides the epidermis from the Dermis layer of the skin. This creates very crisp, fine hair strokes intended to provide a more defined beautiful look to your brows. 

What is MicroShading?

MicroShading is a relatively new technique that has become extremely popular in the Permanent Makeup Industry. This advanced technique is created using a manual hand tool or a PMU machine which gently inserts the pigment underneath the Dermis layer of the skin creating a beautiful, more defined powder effect to the brows compared to old fashion tattoos. MicroShading is commonly referred to as Powdered Brows, Shaded Brows, and Ombre Brows and is recommended for individuals who desire a more pronounced make-up look.

How long does it last?
Everyone is different; it can last 1-3 years.  Certain factors such as density of pigment, environment (UV light, tanning) and overall health, physiology of the skin, impact how long microblading results last. Retention of pigment varies with each person, a color boost touch-up is usually recommended yearly, some clients require a touch up every 6 months depending on their skin. 

If you have oily skin, the pigment tends to fade faster. It is very important to follow aftercare instructions carefully for best results. 

Does it hurt?
This is designed to be a gentle procedure with minimal discomfort. The degree of discomfort will depend on several factors, such as if you opt for anesthetics, the location of the treatment, and your pain threshold. In the beginning, you will feel a scratching feeling while we are marking the shape and design of the brow. A numbing cream is then applied which is absorbed into the skin within a few seconds. Once the cream has absorbed, you will have very little or no feeling.

  • Those who are always in a rush and feel that applying makeup is a luxury they just don't have time for
  • Individuals who desire a more defined natural look
  • Or simply someone who is tired of spending their time applying brow makeup and just wants to wake up with flawless brows

*If you are not certain that you are a candidate or have questions/concerns,  a consultation is recommended. 

Initial Consultation:

The brow design is drawn in pencil so you get an idea of shape and form.

A photo is taken of you so we can study the symmetry of your features. No one is exactly the same, and what we see as your ideal brow might not be what you want, we want to achieve your desired brow. Our goal is to obtain symmetry and communicate realistic expectations. Please remember we can't make you look like your favorite celebrity, we are brow artists, not plastic surgeons but we can definitely make your brows looks amazingly beautiful!

Lavishing Eyebrows Pre-care instructions:

Thank you for choosing Lavishing Eyebrows for your Microblading/Microshading procedure!

Please make sure to read the following instructions to assure the best results for your procedure. It is very important to refrain from of alcohol, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Aleve or any form of blood thinners 24 hrs or more prior to your appointment.

Tylenol is permitted for aches and pains, this medication will not interfere with the procedure. 

Refrain from Vit E and fish oil capsules at least 48 hrs prior to procedlure

Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks up to 24 hrs prior to your treatment and/or on the day of treatment. This will help you relax much easier during the procedure and it will also help relax the facial muscles benefiting the brow area. 
If you tint your brows, do it 2-3 days prior to treatment
Do not tan or sunbathe your face 3 days before treatment.
You must complete any waxing at least 2 days before the treatment.
No chemical peels, dermabrasion, mesotherapy or any other intense treatments. This will cause skin cells to rejuvenate faster which will result in skin irritation. We recommend any of these be done at least a week before microblading.

Thank you again! We look forward to seeing you. You are one step away from having beautiful brows!


On the Treatment Day:

  • Please arrive at your appointment on time and call if you are running late; late arrival can lead to your treatment being postponed to another day. 
  • First, we clean your brow area with sterile, hygienic pads and draw the brow form onto your skin.
  • A photo will be taken, often times a photo will show defects or issues that may need to be addressed.
  • We use a sterile microblading tool and disposable blades during your procedure.
  • We use EU Regulated Permanent Makeup high-quality pigments, specially manufactured for microblading.

Lavishing Eyebrows Microblading/MicroShading - AfterCare Instructions

Aftercare is very important in order to achieve beautiful and lasting results.

Day 1: Please wash hands with antibacterial soap before you wash your eyebrows. 

30 min – 1 hr after the procedure, wash the eyebrows using gauze and gentle soap (provided by your specialist). Gently remove all the lymph and previously applied cream with gauze. The movement is done in the direction of the hair without forcing the skin as well as the opposite direction of the hair. Rinse gauze with lukewarm water and wipe a second time. Pat dry with a soft tissue, using a Q-tip apply a very thin layer of serum/balm (provided by your specialist). When applying ointment, make sure to run the q tip once in the direction of the hair and a second time the opposite direction of the hair to make sure that ointment gets in between all hairs. 

REPEAT this procedure 3- 5 times during the day every 2 hrs FOR THE FIRST 24 hrs to avoid immediate scabbing. If the treatment was done late in the afternoon and you do not have time to wash as directed before bedtime apply a plastic wrap over the eyebrows after applying the ointment so that the brows are protected from drying and wiping overnight.

Day 2-7: **Maintain eyebrow hygiene, for Normal skin apply serum 4 times a day ex: every morning, mid-day, mid-evening and before bedtime. If you have excessively oily skin, only apply the serum 1-2 times a day unless you feel the eyebrow is drying or the skin feels stretchy you may apply more times as needed.  If you have dry skin, you may apply serum 5 times a day depending on the level of eyebrow dryness.  Keep eyebrows lightly glossed with aftercare ointment/balm. Using the tip of the Q-tip,  only apply a thin layer. Do not suffocate your eyebrows. Remember to always make sure you keep your brows clean and dry prior to applying the serum. **Very Important** if you notice that your brows are starting to collect sebum, lymph or flaky tissue at any day after your procedure, make sure to clean your brows by gently wiping with wet gauze using lukewarm water to keep them clean. If sebum, lymph or flaky tissue is left behind, this can harden and create a scab. The scab will eventually fall off and will take some of the pigment with it. 

AVOID THE FOLLOWING:  

  • Avoid direct contact to water/steam contact on the brow area for the first 10 days following your procedure
  • Do not use any other ointments, or creams with vitamins or antibiotics on brows.
  • No sauna, swimming for 10 days
  • No sunbathing, or tanning for 4 weeks.
  • No brow tinting, chemical peels,  facials, dermabrasion, Botox or any other intense treatments for 4 weeks.
  • Do not use any eyebrow makeup for 2 weeks.
  • Do not scratch, rub or sleep on your brows for at least 2 weeks.
  • No heavy workouts for 10  days. Avoid sweating.
  • Avoid accidental pillow contact when sleeping, it is strictly forbidden to sleep with your face on the pillow, this can lead to asymmetrical results.

 TIPS: 

  • Sleep on your back for the first 7 days.
  • Do not wash your hair for the first 3 days if possible
  • When showering, apply a thin layer of Vaseline to brows, cover them with a plastic wrap and then apply goggles over the brows. This will help prevent any direct exposure to water, soap and vapor. 
  • Purchase large goggles to cover your eyebrows while showering  OR wear a shower cap to cover your brows
  • Wear a hat if you are in the sun
  • If you have to wear facial makeup ex: foundation/powder, cover your eyebrows with a plastic wrap during makeup application during the first 7 days to protect brows from direct exposure to make up particles
  • Apply a plastic wrap on brows every night  for the first 10 days.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER MICROBLADING OR EYEBROW SHADING PROCEDURE

Mild swelling, itching, thickness, redness, light scabbing, light bruising, flaking and dry skin tightness. Aftercare serum/balm is nice for scabbing and tightness.

Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 7 days the darkness will start to fade gradually and once swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears.

It is normal to lose 40% of the color during healing process

Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals, the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear.

The brows are approximately 20-25% darker and bolder all around at first VS  once fully healed. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow to flake away and a narrow its appearance. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size. This is all part of the process. 

**Failure to follow aftercare instructions may result in infections and greater pigment loss or discoloration. Everyone’s skin heals differently. It is important to remember that this is a two-part process and the second touch-up will complete the procedure. The touch-up is recommended between 6-10 weeks (after the skin heals completely). Depending on how well your skin heals determines if you will need an additional touch-up to fill in missing hairs, gaps, make hair strokes longer or achieve a more intensive color.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF INFECTION INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:

 Severe redness, excessive swelling, severe tenderness of the procedure site, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, elevated body temperature, or purulent drainage from the procedure site. If any of the above signs should occur, please seek professional medical care. 


I have read, understand and agree to the above instructions.

  

Healing Process:

If you keep your brows clean and dry, only a thin film (not a scab) will appear after 4-7 days. It most cases, it will peel off itself in 7-10 days. After the film peels off, if you can still feel some dryness, apply a thin layer of serum/balm.  

If there is constant contact with water, sebum or sweat, the wound will expand and cause a scab. The scab will result in itching and peeling of the pigment. If you scratch the scab, a scar or white spot can appear and no pigment will be left.

Sometimes residual pigment, blood, white blood cells can arise from the open wound, if this occurs you should gently remove with gauze when rinsing brows. Don't panic if dry patches or scabs appear, this is all normal and part of the healing process. Any adjustments to your brows can be taken care of in the second touch-up appointment. The procedure area has to be completely healed before we can address any concerns. The full healing period is 28-45 days.

Old Tattooed eyebrows:
If you have an old tattooed eyebrow, note that microblading will NOT fully cover your tattoo. It will still likely be visible through the microblading strokes. Only another "blocky" procedure, like a brow tattoo, will cover what you already have. Due to the process that microblading is, tattoos are unable to be fully covered. Previously tattooed clients may require more than 2 sessions. This can occur because of the built up scar tissue in the brow area from the tattoo. If you would like more than 2 sessions, a fee will be assessed. We do our best to cover the existing tattoo and color match but again, due to previous work on the skin, the result will not always be ideal. If the old tattoo is too dark, a saline removal procedure may be recommended first before performing microblading.

In cases like these, a combination procedure can be recommended such as Microblading and MicroShading. Our Shading technique will help cancel unwanted undertones on the skin from old tattoo depending on the  intensity of the old color as well as the quality of the skin. Not all skin absorbs the pigment as good as non tattooed skin. Previously tattooed clients may require more than 2 sessions of Shading technique. 

Touch up:
A touch-up is recommended once a year or every 6 months after the touch-up procedure to keep the color looking fresh and beautiful. Certain factors play a role in pigment retention such as excessive sweating, certain medications and prolonged sun exposure. Your brows will fade as time progresses, touch ups can be done more often depending on personal prefrence.

Consent and Release Agreement for Microblading/Microshading

This form is designed to give the information needed to make an informed choice of whether or not to undergo a Microblading/Microshading Semi-Permanent application. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Although Microblading/Microshading is effective in most cases, no guarantee can be made that a specific client will benefit from the procedure.

Microblading/Microshading is the process of inserting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin and is a form of tattooing.

All instruments that enter the skin or come in contact with body fluids are sealed and sterilized before use and disposed of after use. Cross-contamination guidelines are stickily adhered to.

Generally, the results are excellent. However, a perfect result is not a realistic expectation. It is usual to expect a touch-up after the healing is completed.

Initially, the color will appear much more vibrant or darker compared to the end result. The color will start to fade and will lighten up after the first 7 days. The pigment is semi-permanent and will fade over time and will likely need to be touched-up within 6 months to 2 years.

I have read, understand and agree to the above instructions.

   

Possible Risks, Hazards, or Complications

Pain: There can be pain even after the topical anesthetic has been used. Anesthetics work better on some people than on others.

Infection: Infection is very unusual. The areas treated must be kept clean, and only freshly cleaned hands should touch the areas. See After Care sheet for instructions on care.

Uneven Pigmentation: This can result from poor healing, infection, bleeding, or any other causes. Your follow-up appointment will likely correct any uneven appearance.

Asymmetry: Every effort will be made to avoid asymmetry. It is important to understand that our faces are not 100% symmetrical, there are times when the brows will seem asymmetrical depending on the facial muscle movements. Adjustments may be needed during the follow-up session to address any unevenness.

Excessive Swelling or Bruising: Some people bruise or swell more than others. Ice packs may help reduce the swelling. The swelling or bruising typically disappears in 1-5 days. Some people don't bruise or swell at all.

Anesthetics: Topical anesthetics are used to numb the area to be tattooed. Lidocaine, Prilocaine, Benzocaine, Tetracaine, and/or Epinephrine cream and/or liquid are used. If you are allergic to any of these, please inform me asap to determine which anesthetic is appropriate for you.

MRI: Because pigments used in Permanent Cosmetic procedures may contain very low levels of inert oxides, a low-level magnet may be required if you need to be scanned by an MRI machine. You must inform your MRI Technician of any tattoos or permanent cosmetics.

I have read, understand and agree to the above instructions.
