PERMANENT BROWS AFTERCARE

 

Microblading/Ombré Brows Care Instructions

 

After care is very important for producing a beautiful and lasting result.

Follow the following instructions to get optimal results:

1. BLOT, BLOT, BLOT: 2-3 Hours Post

- For the next 3 hours after your appointment, blot your brows with a clean tissue as often as possible. This prevents any lymph or blood that may be released from your skin after the procedure from drying over and scabbing. DO NOT touch your brows with unwashed hands.

2. DEEP CLEAN- 3 Hours Post

- 3 hours after your appointment, clean your brows.  Using mild antibacterial soap, with your clean hands, lather the soap in your hands with water. In circular motion, gently rub your brows with the foamed soap. Rinse with water and pat dry with a clean towel. For normal to dry skin, place 1/2 grain of rice amount of ointment (given at appointment) on each brow. For oily skin, keep the brow area dry. 

3) CLEAN 2X A DAY- 1-15 Days Post

Every morning and every evening, using the same antibacterial soap as above, lather your hands with the soap and water.  Using PATTING motions, apply the foamed soap to your brows, gently.  Rinse and PAT your brows with a dry towel and place 1/2 grain of rice amount onto each brow once dry. Remember, you do not want to disrupt the natural healing process, so do not place too much ointment or use abrasive motions to cause any flaking to come off prematurely.  Repeat this process until your brows are completely healed visibly (No more flaking).

               3a) For normal to dry skin types, you will begin this cleaning cycle the morning after your procedure

              3b) For extremely oily skin, we recommend you keep your brows dry without any cleansing, besides the first day cleanse, for 48 hours from the procedure.  After 48 hours, proceed as instructed. ONLY USE THE AFTERCARE OINTMENT IF YOUR SKIN FEELS TIGHT OR ITCHY. Otherwise, you can refrain from using the ointment.

NOTE:

-Do not use a washcloth or sponge to remove soap. Simply splash with water. Do not use cleansing creams, acne cleansers or astringents.  

-Apply the aftercare balm with a clean Q-Tip/cotton swab. Rice size amount each time per eye. Use the balm very sparingly. Too little is better than too much.

-Never touch the procedure area without washing your hands immediately before.

-Other than for cleaning, the area must remain dry, refraining from excess moisture, heat, steam, sauna, facial treatments, etc. during the healing process.  The healing process may take up to 15 days.

-Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it is ready the pigment underneath it can be pulled out.

-Do not use any makeup near the procedure area including mascara for eyeliner procedures for at least 3 days. Purchase new mascara and makeup if possible to avoid contamination or bacterial infection.

-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 away more quickly.

What to avoid?

The following must be avoided during healing (7-15 days) post procedure:

  • Increased sweating. It is recommended not to sweat (heavily) for the first 10 days after the procedure. Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area.

  • Practicing sports

  • Swimming

  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning. Absolutely No Sun, sweating, or tanning prior to

the procedure or after the procedure for 10 days. Do not have a tan/sunburn on your face prior to your procedure. The tan will exfoliate taking color with it as it fades.

  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic Acid on the face or neck

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment

  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris

  • Spicy foods

  • Smoking

  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds

  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care

cream with a cotton swab

  • During the shower keep your face away from the showerhead.

 

What to expect?

Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness. Ice packs are a nice relief for swelling and bruising.  Aftercare balm is nice for scabbing and tightness.

Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade and once swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If they are too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks, then we will make adjustments during the touch up appointment.

Color change or “color loss. As the procedure area heals the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear. This can all be addressed during the touch up appointment and is why the touch up is necessary. The procedure area has to be completely healed before we can address any concerns. This takes about four weeks.

Needing a touch up months or years later. A touch up may be needed 6 months to 2 years after the touch up procedure depending on your skin, medications and sun exposure. We recommend the touch up 6-8 weeks after the first session and every 6 months to 2 years to keep them looking fresh and beautiful. Touch up sessions after 8 weeks will be the rate at time of touch up appointment.

Failure to follow after care instructions may result in infections, pigment loss or discoloration. 

Pictured below are what to expect during your healing process.  ALL of these emotions, you will feel.
