FAQ’S AND AFTERCARE

Aftercare is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Other than when you are gently cleaning your eyebrows as detailed below, do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area for 10-14 days after your procedure or until all scabs are gone.

DAY BY DAY AFTERCARE

DAY 1 –  30 minutes after the microblading treatment gently dab your eyebrows with a clean dry cotton pad or tissue without stretching the skin. Repeat this every 2-3 hours to clean the excess lymph and blood until you go to sleep. After wiping, apply a very thin layer of ointment, about ½ grain of rice to cover both brows, using a Q-tip. If your brows look shiny, greasy or glossy, you’ve used too much. Brows need airflow and protection to heal but should never be left wet or greasy.

DAY 2-3 –  Using a clean damp cotton pad with sterile water and gentle antibacterial soap, carefully blot the area in the morning and evening to remove dead skin and bacteria. Always start with clean hands and avoid aggressive movements like rubbing, tugging, or scratching your healing brows. Be gentle and blot, do not rub. Promptly dry your brows off by gently dabbing with a dry cotton pad afterward. Once brows are clean and dry, apply a very thin layer of ointment.

Day 4-14 – Continue cleaning your face 1-2x a day by using a clean damp cotton pad with sterile water and gentle antibacterial soap then promptly dry them off. If you have oily skin, cut back to only applying the very thin layer of ointment 1x a day, if you have normal or dry skin you can continue to apply 2x a day.

For 10-14 days after treatment (or until all scabs are gone) –
Avoid UV rays, sun exposure, saunas, sweating, exercise, and long or hot showers. Avoid all ointments and creams (except the protective one instructed by your artist) and all makeup foundation or other products in the eyebrow area. Avoid picking at or scratching the eyebrows to avoid pigment loss and prevent scarring. Avoid all chemical peels, microdermabrasion, fruit acids, Retin- A, Glycolic acid and any products that contain regeneration factors. Avoid sleeping on your face and be sure to use a clean pillowcase. Avoid heavy cleaning where there is airborne debris.

For 30 days after treatment:
Avoid facials, botox, chemical treatments, microdermabrasion and creams that contain regeneration factors such as fruit acids, chemical peels, Retin- A and Glycolic acid. Avoid sunbathing and exposure to UVA and UVB rays.

Always:
Avoid laser treatments over the treated brows because they can destroy the pigment and cause burns.

Microblading is a semi-permanent form of makeup that enhances your eyebrows. The artist applies hair-like strokes with color pigment using a handheld tool with a series of ultra-fine needles. It is a way to create realistic, natural looking brows, adding definition and fullness to enhance your shape.

Traditional tattoos use ink, while cosmetic tattoo procedures involve pigments. These pigments are designed to gently fade over time. Fading is desired as it allows the artist to make changes to color and shape over the years as client’s natural coloration and facial changes occur.

Microblading requires two separate sessions 6-8 weeks apart.

In your first session, your artist will determine your brow shape by mapping your face to create the perfect shape that suits your bone structure and preference. At this time you will be able to consult with the artist before proceeding.

Numbing cream will be applied to your brows which allows the skin to numb before beginning the process. A color will be chosen based on your natural hair color, natural brow color and skin type.

Once the brows are drawn, the artist creates a series of micro-thin hair strokes in your skin that replicate your natural hair pattern, then goes over each stroke a second time to set the color. Then a thick layer of pigment is applied onto your fresh brows, and once it is wiped away your new brows will be revealed!

After your treatment, be sure to follow strict aftercare procedures from your artist. No sun, no sweating, no exercise, no washing brows or brow area, no sauna, no makeup for at least 10 days. At your 6-8 week touch up, your artist will correct any areas that did not retain color and perfect the brows to set you up until your next annual touch up!

Since pain is relative, this can vary by your sensitivity and tolerances. Some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it’s relatively pain free for most. A numbing agent is used on your brows in advance to provide you with the most comfortable experience possible.

In the days following treatment it is normal for your brows to feel “sore” and “raw.” As your brows continue to heal over the first few days, they will become less sensitive and settle down.

The entire healing process takes 4-6 weeks depending on skin type, age and skin regeneration. Keep in mind, within the first seven days eyebrows are up to 40% darker and 10-15% thicker. The first 2 weeks are the most variable and dramatic in terms of healing. Vacations and events are not recommended during the first 2 weeks of healing.

In about 10-14 days you will be able to wear makeup, exercise and sun again. During the healing process, there are several phases.  TRUST THE PROCESS! Microblading is not a quick fix solution, it takes patience, great aftercare, and coming to your touch up.  At your 6-10 week touch-up we will fix any areas that did not maintain pigment and touch up any strokes that faded too quickly.

Aftercare is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. In the studio, your artist does their part by giving you a custom treatment. You are responsible for maintaining aftercare during the healing process. Sun exposure, sweating, and messing with the brows during the healing process can cause the pigment to fall out or fade faster, so try your best to follow the aftercare instructions given to you while you heal.

You may fill in your eyebrows as you normally do, so we can take into consideration the shape you desire.

It is advised to stop tweezing, plucking, waxing or tinting a few weeks prior to your appointment, to see your natural brow. Do not wax or tint your brows 3 days before the treatment.

No IPL laser hair removal should be performed for the 2 weeks leading up to your appointment.

Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning for 2 weeks before your treatment. Do not come to your appointment with a sunburn, as we cannot work on skin that is currently healing from a tan or burn. In this case, email us at least 48 hours prior to your appointment to reschedule.

Do not use alcohol, caffeine, ibuprofen, fish oil, vitamin E, Niacin or any blood thinning medication 24 hours prior to your appointment.

No Retinol use 2 weeks prior to your appointment and avoid for 2 weeks after

If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan your trip a minimum of 10 days after the procedure due to the aftercare maintenance.

Yes, to ensure that the brows heal perfectly, a minimum of two treatments are typically needed 6-10 weeks apart on average. This first touch-up is necessary as it gives us the ability to correct any areas that possibly faded during the healing process. It allows the artist to set the color for longer lasting results, as well as gives the client an opportunity to make adjustments.

Day 1:  Immediately after the procedure, your pigment will look very natural. They will heal about 30-50% lighter, and may appear darker after your procedure, and the skin underneath will be red; If you have sensitive skin, it may appear puffy underneath your brows. Soreness and sensitivity are common as the numb cream wears off.

Day 2: This is the DARKEST and THICKEST they will look- it can be shocking!

It occurs due to the color oxidizing (turns dark) as it hits the air, and excess pigment remains on your skin. The microbladed strokes widen, causing the brows to look thicker in all directions as the skin is inflamed and raised around the brow as the cuts heal. On this day- keep calm and try to not have anything important scheduled this day. Understand that this is part of the healing process, trust your artist.

Day 3-5: Brows will appear dark and thick, keep in mind they will heal 30-50% lighter and about 10-15% thinner.

Day 5-8: Brows begin to flake off and they might feel a bit itchy. Do not pick at the flakes, let them be. If you pick at your scabs, you may lose color prematurely or cause the skin to scar.

Day 8-14: As brows heal and flake, they may look uneven and patchy as different areas of the brow heal at different times. Some or all color may appear to have disappeared, and you may worry about the shape.

Day 14: Eyebrows are at their disappeared or light stage // You may wonder where your brows have gone.  As the skin cells continue to turn over, your color will slowly come back in.

Days 14-28: Eyebrow color should slowly start returning a bit darker until the end of the first month. At this time, you’re closer to being ready for your touch up!

6 to 10 weeks (after initial appointment): Time for your Touch up appointment!
