FIRST 24 HOURS
For the first 24 hours, every two hours (outside bedtime), lightly cleanse your brows with clean hands and diluted baby shampoo to remove any lymph or crusts that have formed on the surface of the eyebrows. Pat dry and apply a very thin layer of healing ointment.
DAY 2 -7
Continue to lightly cleanse daily with clean hands and apply a thin layer of healing ointment to the area twice a day. If the skin is oily and not scabbing, lightly cleanse the area daily with clean hands and apply healing ointment only if your brow area feels dry or tight.
DAY 8 - 28
Continue to practice good hygiene while keeping your hands and brows clean. There is no need to apply healing ointment after day 7. Never rub, pick, or scratch the area during cleansing or at other times. Skin will need to complete the flaking process on its own. Picking, scratching or rubbing will remove fresh pigment. Do not “soak” the brows in water or keep them wet for any substantial amount of time. Cleanse gently, yet quickly and pat dry. Damp skin enlarges pores and can “push out” pigment, affecting retention. Do not “soak” the brow with sweat for 14 days.
For the first 14 days, apply petroleum jelly or other waterproof substance to the eyebrows before bathing and showering to prevent prolonged water on the brows. Do not wear makeup, lotions or skin care products (outside healing ointment) on eyebrows for 14 days. Stay out of the sun for 14 days. Apply sunscreen to the brow after 14 days to prevent premature fading. Do not apply any types of chemical peels or exfoliation products to the eyebrows for the life of your brows, as this may induce premature fading.
Absolutely no laser treatments may be performed on tattoos or permanent makeup, including microblading. Please let your doctor or esthetician know you have received microblading services prior to any cosmetic procedure.
MICROBLADING HEALING PROCESS
Following the microblade procedure, the skin will go through specific stages of healing. The complete healing process will take between 4-6 weeks. Please be patient and wait the elapsed time before judgements or adjustments can be made.
You may see some swelling and redness in and around the area which should resolve within a few hours after treatment. The eyebrows will crust with clear lymphatic fluids. Rinse this frequently to prevent scabbing.
DAY 2 - 7
Eyebrows will appear up to 50% darker than intended result. This is due to pigment stain and crusting and will slough off naturally. Do not attempt to rub or pick off the color. Eyebrows may feel itchy and light scabs will form over the bladed area. The skin will be rough to the touch. Do not pick or scratch the eyebrows as this may affect retention. The pigment will begin to flake between 5 - 7 days and will not appear lighter than the intended result. This is due to a new skin concealing the pigment.
DAY 7- 28
Skin will continue to heal and the vanished pigment will reappear during the natural regeneration cycle.
DAY 4 - 6 WEEKS
You should see your true result and receive your first touch up. Subsequent touch-ups should be performed everything 12 - 24 months.
