AFTER THE MICROBLADING PROCEDURE:
***FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTER-CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN SCARRING, INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION.***
Wash the microbladed area twice per day followed by applying the microblading aftercare ointment.
- At the start and end of each day, use your clean fingertips and a mild antibacterial soap, like Cetaphil, to gently cleanse your eyebrows for 10-15 seconds.
- Avoid using any cleansing products that contain exfoliants or acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA).
- Keep in mind the cleansing shouldn’t be a thorough scrub-down, it just needs to be done by rubbing the microbladed area in a soft, smooth manner.
- When rinsing, be sure to rinse every trace of soap from the microbladed area.
- Dry the entire eyebrow area completely by blotting it with a clean tissue.
- Use a clean finger to apply a small amount of the microblading aftercare ointment to the microbladed area. Do not apply the ointment unless the area is dry.
- Less is more when considering how much ointment to apply; the amount applied to each eyebrow should be comparable in size to half of a grain of rice.
- Microblading aftercare ointment should only be applied twice per day following the washes to avoid suffocating the skin and interfering with the skin’s natural healing process.
The aftercare ointment no longer needs to be applied, but continue to gently wash the microbladed area each morning and night.
THINGS TO AVOID:
***It’s critical to avoid the following for 14 days after your microblading procedure.***
- Touching the microbladed area except when washing or applying aftercare ointment.
- Scratching, picking or peeling the microbladed area, as it can cause scarring and/or color loss.
- Applying any makeup, moisturizer, lotion, or sunscreen to your eyebrows.
- Sun exposure – sun tanning – salon tanning
- Laser or chemical peels, and any other form of exfoliation.
- Exercise – participating in sports and activities that induce perspiration
- Long, hot baths or showers – jacuzzis – saunas – swimming
- Applying any creams to your face or neck containing retinol or glycolic acid.
- Engaging in tasks like heavy household cleaning where airborne debris can become prevalent.
- Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, as it can cause wounds to heal slower.
- Transportation in open-air-vehicles where strong wind is likely, for example; driving in cars with windows down, convertibles, motorcycles, bicycles, and boats.
AFTER DAY 14:
Resume your normal activities except, continue to avoid laser or chemical peels and forms of exfoliation, and any creams containing retinal or glycolic acid until after the completion of your microblading touch up appointment, and its healing process as well.BOOK NOW
Important note about showering:
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
We also suggest avoiding any activities, which will cause you to over-sweat and push the ink out of the skin, as well as activities such as the gym or saunas.
There is no down time for Microblading, however, the area may be red and swollen and we recommend that you do not plan any social activities afterwards. This is NOT a quick fix beauty treatmentand you have to be prepared to endure all the healing stages of Microblading.
**If you are planning to go hot vacation involving sun, sweating, and swimming, make sure you give your skin two weeks to heal post microblading before showing off your newly microbladed brows on the beach!***
