Always wash your hands with a disinfectant soap before treating or touching your eyebrows.
Do not touch or rub the healing pigmented area as this can create an infection. Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.
Do not get brows wet for 72 hours after procedure. Once 72 hours have passed, carefully wash your brows in warm water with mild antibacterial soap and clean fingertips. (Do not use a cloth)
Before showering apply a layer of post-care cream to protect your eyebrows from moisture. During the shower keep your face away from the shower head.
Apply a thin layer of Aquaphor or grapeseed oil as needed with a clean cotton swab anytime your brows feel dry/ itchy/ flaky, as long as it is after the 72 hours dry period. NOTE: Too much Aquaphor will cause the pigment to scab. Aquaphor is available in the skin care section of any drug store.
Do not apply make up to the brow area for 10-14 days and when you do, please ensure your makeup brushes/ pencils are clean and sanitized.
No sun exposure, sauna, swimming, working out or heavy sweating for 2 weeks.
Do not get Botox injections, laser treatments until your brows are fully healed in 30 days.
Do not attempt to remove or pick at any scabbing, please allow the skin to heal itself as this can cause loss of pigment, unsatisfactory results and/or serious infection.
After your brows have fully healed, maintain pigment retention by using sunblock daily on brow area.
Products that contain glycolic, lactic, AHA and retinol acids will fade your pigment faster overtime.
If you are a blood donor, do not give blood for 6 months following your micro blading procedure.
The healing of deeper wounds might last between 14-21 days. Touch-ups and/or correction of the shape-design is recommended only after this period.
Day One (Day of treatment): After 2 hours of procedure, wipe gently eyebrows off the lymph drainage with a moistened cotton pad. Do this couple times a day.
Day Two: Repeat the wiping of the brows at least 2 times a day.
Day Three: Wash the treated area with warm water and mild soap like Cetaphil. Wash your hands with a disinfectant soap before washing your eyebrows and/or applying the post-care cream.

The following must be avoided during all nine days post-microblading procedure:
• Sweating. It is recommended not to sweat for the first 10 days after the procedure. Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area.
• Practicing sports, Swimming and 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 2 weeks. 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
• 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
What to expect during and after your microblading session
Your new temporary eyebrow will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin, and has not yet settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on the cotton swab, as this is excess pigment and/or body fluid that is naturally exiting your skin.
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly, however, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.
Once completely healed, after 2 weeks, 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.
You can now enjoy your beautiful new temporary eyebrows. You will simply love your new gorgeous fresh look!
