AFTER...


The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure:


•Increased sweating

•Swimming

•Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

•Sun tanning or salon tanning

•UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

•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

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


AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS: 


It is essential that you follow these instructions after your microblading treatment: 


Day 1 – Let it heal dry and don't touch until Day 2. 


Days 2-10:  

-Wash your hands with a disinfectant soap before washing your eyebrows and or applying the post care cream.

-Make a lather in your hands with a gentle face wash (Cetaphil is recommended) and gently wash your brows, being careful to not be abrasive or irritate the healing skin. 

-Pat them dry with a towel and let them air dry completely.  

-Gently apply a thin layer of post care cream with a cotton swab.    


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

*Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post microblading procedure. During this time, resist the urge to peel the flaking skin. Instead apply a small amount of post care cream to soothe it. 

*The healing of deeper wounds might last between 14-21 days.  



What to expect during and after your microblading session:


Your newly microbladed eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. 


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.  The color of the pigment will soften gradually. Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment come off with flaking skin, as this is excess pigment.


Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 and up to your eyebrows when going into the sun. Excessive sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly.
