This is the most important part! Its up to you to follow
proper after care to ensure you get the best result.
The day of the treatment: Absorb
After the procedure, gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids over the brows.
Days 1-4: Wash
Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don't worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)
Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.
Days 1-3 Moisturize
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area after cleansing and drying your brows. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
Days 4 - 7
Stop using the moisturizer and completely stop getting them wet. Avoid heavy sweating and submerging your eyebrows in water. This includes swimming, hot yoga, saunas, excessive sweating etc.
After day 7 you can return back to normal
Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep.
Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause loss of color.
No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 3 weeks before + after
Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.*
Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors.
Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days.*
Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
Avoid face-down swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 10 days,
Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area for the first 10 days.
DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.
Avoid activities that involve getting dirty, including gardening.
Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results with your microblading procedure.
*Important note about showering for the first 10 days:
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
*Important note for exercising the first 7-10 days:
If you have an active lifestyle, (fitness, yoga,pilates instructor) and cannot avoid working out or being active post microblading treatment - there are a few aftercare instructions you can follow.
