It is essential that you follow these instructions after your Microblading session:
THE FOLLOWING MUST BE AVOIDED FOR 3 WEEKS POST-MICROBLADING PROCEDURE:
❖ Allowing any water to touch the brows!
❖ Swimming (Chlorine and salt water will affect the colour)
❖ Hot sauna or hot bath
❖ Sun tanning or salon tanning
❖ 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 brow area.You will cause scarring of the area or removal of the pigment if you pick or peel scabs prematurely.
❖ Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
❖ Touching of the eyebrow especially prior to the area scabs at app
❖ Do not use any cleansers or facial products of any kind, over the brow area for at least 14 days.
❖ Absolutely do not use any ointments, antibiotic creams or gels, or Vitamin creams over the brow area – it will draw out the pigment.
*After 1 week before showering apply a thick layer of Vasoline to protect your eyebrows from moisture. During the shower keep your face away
from the showerhead. And remove the Vasoline gently after the shower.
Please NOTE: Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. However, experience has shown that by
following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.
Touch-ups and/or correction of the shape-design is required only after 6-8 weeks. This is to replace any hair strokes lost during the healing
process and give a fuller appearance if desired. If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Rachael on 0434994504 for reassurance during this process.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR MICROBLADING SESSION:
Your eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
Days 1-4: The pigment will appear very sharp and dark. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin, and has not yet settled in
completely. The colour of the pigment will soften gradually. Your brows may swell and appear larger also.
Days 5-7: Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the
pigment is fading too quickly, however, this is just superficial colour and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.
Days 8-12: Your brows may look as though the pigment has completely faded – do not panic – take a deep breath and trust the process.
Days 14-28: Your brows may still look a little patchy or uneven, but the pigment will start to “reappear” as the pigment settles and the healing
You may get your touch-up/perfecting procedure done at the 4-8 week point NO SOONER to allow for complete healing of the brows.
Pro-Tip: Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun.
Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade quickly.
**The following picture is NOT my work, but it is a pretty good representation of the healing process.
It is critical to follow all aftercare instructions to prevent complications, scarring and to achieve optimum
results. Please read carefully.
1. KEEP AREA CLEAN and open to the air. Do not cover with a Band-Aid or anything else, leave open to air. Air/oxygen
provides good and faster healing. You should not be touching the area at all but if you find yourself needing to please
make sure your hands are exceptionally clean.
2. CLEAN THE AREA 3 to 4 times daily with saline. Dampen a paper towel or gauze then blot the area gently to cleanse.
3. DO NOT SOAK the treated area in water. You can shower as normal but keep the area out of the shower spray the
best you can and do not let the area stay wet for more than a few minutes. It is best to keep it dry but if you do get it
wet gently pat dry.
4. NO BATHING, SWIMMING, SAUNAS, HOT TOBS, TANNING, OR EXERCISE. NO EXCEPTIONS.
5. DO NOT disrupt the scabbing process (i.e. no picking, scratching, etc.) All scabbing needs to fall off naturally. If you force or pick a scab off you will disrupt the process and possibly cause scarring. It is critical to keep the scabs on as long as possible to achieve optimum results.
6. TREAT AREA WITH TLC. DO NOT DO ANYTHING AT ALL THAT COULD CAUSE ISSUES OR PROBLEMS TO THE TREATED
7. ONCE ALL SCABBING HAS NATURALLY FALLEN OFF, apply one drop Vitamin E Oil 3 to 4 times throughout the day for
a minimum of 4 weeks, or until next lightening session. DO NOT start applying the Vitamin E oil UNTIL all scabbing has
naturally and completely fallen off. It is our goal to keep the area as dry as possible until all scabs have naturally fallen off.
8. LIPS please drink all liquids with a straw until all scabbing has naturally fallen off. Brush with Toms of Maine or Classic Crest (no whitening, no peroxide toothpastes. Cut food into small bites....no biting into a sandwich. Try to keep mouth expressions to a minimum.
❖ It is important to the process and integrity of the skin that 8 full weeks of healing take place before another
lightening session can be done. No exceptions.
❖ Lightening and/or removing unwanted pigment is a long process and patience is required. This is true whether you are choosing a lightening product service or laser. Please be patient and give the process a fair chance to work. Expect visible and wanted results in 2 to 5 sessions. How many sessions needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how deep it was implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result. In many cases only a percentage of the pigment needs to be lightened/removed and then we can continue the correction process by color correcting or color shifting. In those cases where we have pigment misplaced or in an unwanted area, color correcting will not be an option and removing as much of the pigment as possible will be our ultimate goal.
❖ Results cannot be foreseen, predicted or guaranteed.
❖ If you have any questions or concerns please call us. If at any time you have any green or yellow puss in the area
of the removal, or any concerns at all during the healing process please call us at (702) 809-8237.
