After-Care Instructions for Microblading
Do not wet for 7 days, please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.
No rubbing, no picking. The treated area might feel a little ticklish during the first phase of recovering process, it is important not to rub it as you might get infection into your skin. Peeling is absolutely normal during second phase of recovery; avoid any sort of peeking of dry skin as you might peel out the wrong parts and create bald spots in newly reconstructed brow.
Keep your hair away from your face. This means avoid putting your fringe over brows for at least 7 days as this could cause infection.
Apply grape seed oil after 7 days of the treatment. Oil usually applied in the evening before sleep, some customer might need to apply it 2 times per day. It will help to keep treated area moisturized and soft for the rest of recovery period. Although, grape seed oil is the most popular and recommended you can substitute it with sweet almond, jojoba or coconut oil. Avoid Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline as it can cause a reaction and block skin from breathing.
No sun beds, tanning, excessive sweating in the gym, no makeup or anti aging creams on the brow area for at least 10 days. It is best to allow the brow to heal first before using any of the above. .
Entire healing process will take from 4 to 6 weeks depending on your body’s regeneration, age, immune system and lifestyle. Sometimes after microblading customers develop dry, flaky skin. It is very important not to rub, pick or peel off your flakes or scabs. Itching is absolutely normal as skin is repairing itself. Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing process. If you get your brow wet at the beginning of recovery, simply dry it with lint free tissue. The way you take care of your new brow after microblading will have great impact on the way it looks. Improper care often results in fading or “patchy” brow.
Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period brows might appear lighter than original. Often, even with proper care, customers develop bald spots or loose original hairstrokes which makes brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal because your natural skin regeneration is not a process that technician can control. That’s why most customers need a touch up after 1 month to assure that brows are perfectly even and desired effect was achieved.
