Aftercare Instructions

It is essential that you follow these instructions after your Microblading session:

Day One: Wait 1 - 2 hours and let the wounds weep lymph. After 2 hours you must wipe off the lymph with a moistened cotton pad, then apply a thin layer of Aquaphor with a cotton swab. Do this every hour on the hour until bed.

At night wash the treated area with warm distilled water and mild soap like Cetaphil. Wash your hands with a disinfectant soap before washing your eyebrows and/or applying the post- care cream (Aquaphor).

NOTE: Too much Aquaphor will cause the pigment to scab. Aquaphor is available in the skin care section of any drug store.

Day Two - Nine: Repeat the wiping of the brows at least 2 times  a day. At night wash the treated area with warm distilled water and mild soap like Cetaphil. Wash your hands with a disinfectant soap before washing your eyebrows and/or applying the post-care cream.

THE FOLLOWING MUST BE AVOIDED DURING ALL NINE DAYS POST-MICROBLADING PROCEDURE:

  • Sweating. It is recommended not to sweat for the first 10 days after the procedure. Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area.

  • Practicing sports

  • Swimming

  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or jacuzzi

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning. Absolutely No sun, sweating, or tanning prior to the procedure or after the procedure for 2 weeks. Do not have a tan/sunburn on your face prior to your procedure. The tan will exfoliate taking color with it as it fades.

  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic Acid on the face or neck

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment.

  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris. 

  • Spicy foods

  • Smoking (This will affect the coloring of the pigment while healing)

  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds

  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab. 

Before showering apply a thin layer of post-care cream to protect your eyebrows from moisture. During shower keep your face away from the shower head.

 

Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear. 

The healing of deeper wounds might last between 14-21 days. Touch ups and/or correction of shape-design is recommended only after this period.
