Post care

The Microblading procedure normally requires multiple treatment sessions. An obligatory 4-6 week touch up is required to finish your treatment.  Those with oily skin may require an additional touch up (at an additional cost). Please be aware that colour intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately after the initial procedure, and will reduce by 30-50%. Please follow the aftercare instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results. 

Colour retention and proper healing will depend on your home care regimen, so it is crucial that you follow the provided instructions for best results.

 Aftercare lotion will be supplied for you to take home and will be applied immediately following your procedure, showing you how to continue your home care.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT:

  • within 30 minutes of your procedure, you must wash your eyebrows with neutral soap - we recommend baby shampoo

  • with neutral soap, gently wash your brows to remove any remaining aftercare lotion, blood and lymph

  • do not rub or scrub your brows

  • gently pat them to dry with a clean soft towel or tissue

  • reapply your aftercare cream provided as instructed

FOR THE NEXT 2 WEEKS:

  • apply and continue to use your aftercare cream 3 times a day

  • Use a clean Q-tip and apply a light coat over the area - do not double dip your Q-tip

  • Aftercare lotion will be required for the next 2 weeks

  • This step is very important – keeping the pigmented skin moist with an aftercare balm will control the amount of drying and crusting, this will offer aid to colour retention

No other products should be used on the eyebrows besides the aftercare lotion provided. This includes makeup, toner, cream, lotion, sunblock, etc.

FOR THE FIRST 2 WEEKS AVOID:

  • Any type of skin peels/facials or products containing Retin A, Glycolic Acid and makeup over the pigmented area

  • Hot steamy showers or long baths, hot tubs, swimming, saunas, sun tanning, and hot yoga

  • Keep your face away from the shower head

  • Do not expose the treated area to direct sunlight. After healed (30 days), use a sunscreen to avoid fading from the sun

  • Avoid makeup applied directly on the brows

PLEASE DO NOT:

  • Pick, peel, or scratch as this could cause scarring or removal of colour

  • Do not touch the area except for applying Tattoo Aftercare Balm provided with a clean Q-tip.

  • If your brows become slightly dry or itchy following the treatment, tap them to alleviate the itch.
