AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

FOR MICROBLADING

  • Proper after care is crucial for producing beautiful and lasting results!

  • For the first hour after the procedure, blot your brows with a clean paper towel to remove any tiny little clear beads of fluid coming from your brows.  

  • Keep the area clean by washing with freshly washed hands and a mild soap. Do not use a washcloth or sponge to remove soap. Simply splash with water. Do not use cleansing creams, acne cleansers or astringents. Use a mild, natural soap.

  • Apply the aftercare balm with clean fingers or a Q-tip. Use the balm very sparingly. Too little is better than too much. Blot off excess with a clean tissue. Never touch the procedure area without washing your hands immediately beforehand.  After 3 days of the ointment, switch to a white unscented lotion and continue with that until healed.

  • Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it’s ready the pigment underneath can be pulled out. 

  • Do not use any makeup near the tattooed area for at least 5-7 days.

  • It is recommended to use a sunblock after the procedure area has healed to protect from sun fading.

 WHAT’S NORMAL?

  • Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness. Ice packs are a nice relief for swelling and bruising. Aftercare balm is helpful for scabbing and tightness.

  • Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade and once swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If they are too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during the touchup appointment to correct any issues (2nd session). 

  • Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear. This can all be addressed during the touchup appointment. This is why the touchup appointment is so important. The procedure area has to be completed healed before we can address any concerns. The healing process takes 3-4 weeks. 

  • Needing a touch up months or years later. A touch up may be needed 6 months to 2 years after the touchup procedure depending on your skin, medications and sun exposure. We recommend a touchup 6-9 weeks after the first session and every 6 months to 2 years to keep your brows looking fresh and beautiful.

 

Failure to follow aftercare instructions may result in infections, pigment loss 

or discoloration.
