MICROBLADING AFTER CARE
Eyebrow care before your procedure
•Do not wax or tint your brows 3 to 4 days before
•Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone
•No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior
•Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may cause your blood to thin (72 Hours)
•No Botox for 30 days
•Please note you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle
What to expect at your appointment
First thing, I will clean your eyebrow area with a sterile wipe. I will then start to measure the brow area to shape your brows until we both AGREE on the shape. I will then apply an anesthetic numbing cream (anesthetic will be on for approx. 20 – 25 minutes.) During that time, you can ask questions, use the restroom, talk about the procedure and what to expect, color and after care.
Once the anesthetic has numbed the area, I will begin the microblading procedure. Please note after the procedure is done, your eyebrows will be very bold and darker from your expected color choice. DO NOT panic this is normal; it will fade and become more natural looking.
What to expect during the healing process
You will scab and it is a good thing! DO NOT PICK AT YOUR SCABS. Do not be alarmed if your scabs fall off and you start to see patchy holes (not full) on your brows. They will start to look lighter and unfinished. Stay calm, as this is all part of the healing process.
Everyone heals differently and sometimes when scabs are new, the pigmentation can appear very bold. After a few days it will calm down and you will see your desired shade of choice.
Please note, some individuals during the healing time, will notice white flakiness over the pigmentation scabs. It will look as if there is no more pigmentation. DO NOT panic, this is also apart of the healing process. The pigmentation will darken within the healing time.
After you all done with your procedure, every hour you must blot your freshly microbladed eyebrows with a tissue or paper towel. Keep doing this every hour until you wash your brows and go to bed. We want to blot the clear fluid away, if left on the brow it can cause a nasty heal time. (this is only done the first day)
•Within 24 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed boiling water. Gently wipe away the old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up, DO NOT RUB the area hard. Lightly pat dry with a soft cloth and using a new q-tip, re-apply healing balm to the brows.
•Within 24 hours apply your healing balm every 2 to 4 hours with a clean q-tip. After the 24 hours apply morning and night. (Unless you have excessively oily skin, keep it to maximum of 2-3 times per day)
•After the 24 hours DO NOT get your eyebrows wet for the first 10 days, we want a dry heal. Keep using your heal balm, morning and night until healed.
•Do not put your face directly underneath the shower head.
•Do not rub, pick or scratch the treated area as picking can causing scarring.
•No increased sweating. It is recommended not to sweat (heavily) for the first 10 days after the procedure. Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area.
•No swimming, we want a dry heal.
•No Saunas, hot tubs or Jacuzzis.
•No facials, Botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
•Only use the healing balms recommended: (Zensa, Coconut oil, grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil). DO NOT use Vaseline or any petroleum jelly’s.
•Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
•Always keep your hands clean just in case you forget and touch your eyebrows
Long Term care
•Always use a good sunscreen on your eyebrows. Sun exposure will fade your microbladed procedure.
•If you use Retin-A/Tretinoin or any other skin exfoliation products use regularly on the forehead area will cause the microbladed area to fade prematurely. Try your best to avoid the eyebrow area.
•Chemical peels, acid peels and any exfoliating treatments on a regular basis can cause fading.
•A touch up is recommended 6 to 12 weeks after your initial procedure due to many factors that can affect the pigmentation. However it is optional.
Touch up requirement
6 - 12 weeks after your first procedure, it is recommended to come back to complete the second step of the process. This is up to the individual, but please be advised you will lose up to 40% of the pigmentation after your first visit. This is why it is strongly recommended as a 2-step procedure. Once you come for your touch up, your brows will look fuller.
