Eyebrow Care


Pre care instructions

  • No tanning or extreme sun exposure 2 weeks prior
  • No facial peels 2 weeks prior to treatment
  • Discontinue Retinol products one week prior to treatment
  • Do not work out the day of the procedure
  • Do not have Botox 3 weeks prior
  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners)
  • Do not drink alcohol 24 hours prior
  • Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen the day of the procedure (thins the blood)

Aftercare Instructions

Day of treatment

Wait 2 hours and let the wounds weep lymph (clear liquid you see after a superficial wound). After two hours gently blot the area with clean water moistened cotton pad, then apply rice grain size of Aquaphor (or like product) and gently spread across treated area. Do not over apply.   This could affect the results and delay healing. Continue this routine every 2 hours until bed time. Use a mild soap like Cataphyll to gently wash in a blotting motion.

Days 2-9

Gently wash in a patting (no scrubbing) motion each morning and night with water and a gentle soap. Use the rice grain amount of Aquaphor and spread across brow. Do not over apply but use it until it is gone. Again this could affect the results. The ointment should barely be noticeable on your skin. Never put ointment on wet or damp. We don’t want to seal in moisture.

Important: When showering, try not to create too much steam. Also, keep your brows from getting wet. Keep your face out of the water while you wash.   At the end of your shower wash your hair trying to keep your face out of direct contact with the shooting water or running water. A bit of a challenge but very important for ultimate results.

 

Your new temporary eyebrow will go through several phases during the healing cycle.

Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading.

The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin and has not yet settled in completely. This is why you must be gentle. You may notice pigment on the cotton pad as you pat your skin, this is normal.

Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression the color pigment is fading to quickly, however, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally expelled from your brow.

    • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Do not rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color
    • No chemical treatments, acid peals, laser peels or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks. If you get any of these procedures, inform them of your microblading procedure.
    • No facials or Botox 3 weeks after
    • Don’t begin Retina products for at least a week after and in general keep Retina A away from brows.
    • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week
    • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after procedure.  Wear a hat when outdoors.
    • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
    • Avoid swimming, lakes, hot tubs, and hot Sauna for the first 10 days
    • The sun changes the color of our skin as well as your brows. It causes us to peel and premature fading on the brow area as well. Our best combat for this is sunscreen, big hats and big glasses before and after the procedure. Nothing we haven’t been told all our lives.

Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine you will have much better results with your microblading procedure.
