Microblading Aftercare

We hope you are satisfied with the results of your treatment. To ensure you receive the full benefits we strongly recommend you note the following:

Please follow these instructions for 14 days after the procedure to improve and prolong the results of your microblading. If you don’t follow these instructions, it can greatly affect your microblading results or put you at risk for infection, scarring or loss of pigmentation!

You will need the following items for use immediately after the procedure: sterile gauze, bottled water

Avoid getting anything on the brows, including water, except for cleansing as directed.
For the first day after your procedure, please gently blot your brows every hour, using sterile gauze and a little bit of bottled/distilled water, to remove any excess lymph fluids. You can set an alarm on your phone to help remind you. This is very important to minimize scabbing and allow for better pigment retention!

In 2-3 hours, wash lightly with slightly damp Q-tips. Repeat this washing, very gently every morning and night. When washing, it should be very gentle and with hardly any water and with a tapping motion, no rubbing. Please avoid saturating brows with water. On the first night, after cleansing you may very sparingly apply a thin application of aftercare balm,  using a clean Q-tip (apply a tiny amount, about the size of a grain of rice), and repeat  – morning and night. This will hydrate your brow area for dryness relief. Do not pick or rub the brows. The scabs/flakes must fall off on their own or you will risk removing the color and possibly scarring

What to expect during the coming weeks

Initially, your brows will appear more bold than usual. This is because we have enhanced the brows, deposited pigment in the skin and often, made them appear fuller. For the next few days following the procedure, your brows may darken during the healing process. This is normal and this is not the way they will remain. Around day 7-14, you may notice some flaking/shedding of the skin near the brow area. Think of this as very small “scabs” falling off the skin as the skin underneath has healed. When the skin flakes off, many times the microblading strokes appear very light or sometimes it seems that they have disappeared. THIS IS NORMAL! This is because there is still a thick layer of protective skin creating a veil over the pigment. Once you go through a skin cycle (4-6 weeks) the pigment will typically reappear but will be about 30-50% lighter than it was immediately after the procedure.
