Pre & After Care
In general, there is no downtime for Microblading Eyebrows. The area will heal completely in about 10 -14 days, the pigment may appear about 30% darker for the first few days and strokes will shrink by about 20%.
The most important thing that goes into a successful Microblading semi-permanent hairstroke procedure is how well the client follows the aftercare procedure. You want to make sure to keep the area moist with Aquaphor, all day long 24/7 for at least 10 days. This will allow the color to set in and avoid oxygen from hitting your brows and changing the color while it is sets in.
DO NOT WASH THE PROCEDURE FOR 24-48 HOURS!
Avoid for 10 days: Makeup (on procedure area), Extreme Sweating, Swimming, Tanning, Hot Sauna, and Laser/Chemical/Botox Treatments.
Aquaphor Is Your Best Friend
-Use a cotton swab to apply Aquaphor Ointment throughout the day for 2-4 weeks (the area should never be dry).
-For the first 4 hours after the procedure, pat the procedure area with a paper towel every 30 minutes to remove excess blood/fluid.
-Do not touch the procedure area with your fingers as they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.
-We suggest Aquaphor because it tends to not cause inflammation, but if you are allergic, Vaseline will do just fine.
-Always use a “total sunblock” sunscreen until the area has fully healed to prevent future fading of pigment color.
-Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area as they will fade the color (Example: Glycolic, Lactic Acids)
- Additional retouch treatments must not be done until
the brows are completely healed.
- 6-8 weeks of healing time is required before your retouch.
- Immediately after treatment and during the first few
days please wash your hands to prevent cross –
contamination before touching your eyebrows.
- If you are scheduled to have a chemical peel or laser procedure, please inform the technician of your new brows.
- Please inform the National Blood Service if you donate blood as you may not be eligible to give blood for a six-month period following your treatment.
