AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS


MICROBLADING:

NOTE: Following aftercare instructions precisely are critical to the healing and appearance of your eyebrow embroidery!

  • Keep the area clean by using freshly washed hands and a mild, natural soap. Simply splash with water to rinse, blot dry with clean tissue. Do not use cleansing creams, acne cleansers or astringents for at least 7 days.
  • Apply Aquaphor or cortisone cream with freshly washed hands or a q-tip. Use the cream sparingly, Never touch the procedure area without washing your hands immediately before. 
  • 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 is ready the pigment can be pulled out of place.
  • Do not use any makeup near the procedure area including brow pencil, powder, pomade, concealer, foundation or wax, for at least 7 days after the procedure. It is best to disinfect all old makeup or buy new makeup to be used on or near the procedure site.
  • Always use a sunblock after the procedure area is healed to protect from sun fading. 

What’s Normal?

  • Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness. Use ice packs for swelling and cortisone cream for scabbing and tightness.
  • Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade and once swelling dissipates the unevenness usually disappears. If they are too dark or still uneven after 4 weeks, we will make adjustments during the touch up appointment.
  • 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 touch up appointment and is why the touch up is necessary. The procedure area has to be completely healed before we can address any concerns. This takes at least 4 weeks.

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