It is essential that you follow these instructions after your Microblading session:
THE FOLLOWING MUST BE AVOIDED FOR 3 WEEKS POST-MICROBLADING PROCEDURE:
The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-procedure:
Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
Sun tanning or salon tanning
Exposure to 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 treatment area
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
Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab
No soap or products ie cleansers o the treated area for 7 days.
Do not stand under the shower and let the water hit your face during your healing period. Use extra cream to act as a barrier when showering.
Cleanse area gently with damp cotton round 3 times per day pat dry with a clean tissue and apply your cream SPARINGLY. The area must be kept moist for successful healing without scabbing. No picking the tattooed area as the colour will come away while bonging and can cause scarring. Do not smother the tattoo in cream
Day 1-3 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 incompletely. The colour of the pigment will soften gradually. Your brows may swell and appear larger also.Brows will start developing a layer of scab, continue keeping your brows dry and clean, do not touch them to prevent infection.
Day 4 -12 .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.The scab is starting to feel thigh and itchy, start applying a light layer of ointment. Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment (Aquaphor) on each eyebrow with a cotton swab and clean hands, spread a VERY THIN layer of the ointment across the treated area every morning, miday and night. Brows should not appear greasy, glossy or shiny, if so you used too much, as this can suffocate the skin and delay healing. Never apply ointment on wet or damp tattoos. Continue ointment until your brows are no longer scabbing.Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment (Aquaphor) on each eyebrow with a cotton swab and clean hands, spread a VERY THIN layer of the ointment across the treated area every morning, miday and night.

Continue ointment until your brows are no longer scabbing.
Note there may be some clear fluid weep from the brow, this is normal. Dab with a round wipes firmly to prevent scab.
DAY 12 - Scabs are done peeling, brows look light after peeling process. The lightness can vary for each individual
DAY 14 - Brows are safe from water. Clients may return to normal skincare routines. Brows will appear very light, after scabs come off, every week up to 6 weeks color will continue to surface and brows will get darker.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Microblading LA immediately, to discuss further instructions.
Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.
Touch-ups and/or correction of the shape-design are 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. ou may get your touch-up/perfecting procedure done at the 4-8 week point NO SOONER to allow for complete healing of the brows.If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Rachael on 0434994504 for reassurance during this process.
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.
The eye area will feel like a windburn. Apply 1 x lubricating eye drops to each eye in an hour of procedure, then again 30 minutes later to
flush the eye and lubricate it. Ensure your rest your eyes after treatment. Apply aftercare cream twice a day after treatment.
Due not to use mascara or makeup for 7 days post-procedure.
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 me on 0434994504.
