MICROBLADING AFTER CARE

Microblading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows.

Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 10 days after your procedure.

 

FIRST 24 HOURS AFTER TREATMENT

 

UNLESS ADVISED DIFFERENTLY BY YOUR AESTHETICIAN PLEASE FOLLOW ADVICE BELOW. 

Morning and night, bathe your new Eyebrows with a slightly damp cotton pad and cooled boiled water to sterilise the area. Make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply a rice grain amount of post-care ointment  with a cotton swab. DO NOT RUB IN, SIMPLY SWIPE OVER. 

 

AFTER THE FIRST 24 hours

For the following 3 days apply a thin layer of ointment once per day if needed, depending on how heavy your scabbing is. 

IF YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE OINTMENT PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING. 

Ointment is only to relieve scabbing and itching if needed

For POWDERED /OMBRÉ eyebrows use jelly 3-4 times per day for 7 days.

Over use of aftercare ointment can inhibit healing and affect pigment retention. The skin needs to be able to heal itself.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure:

Increased sweating

Practicing sports

Swimming

Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

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 cleaning  where there is a lot of airborne debris

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

Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.  During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.

 

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.

 

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Defined Beauty Clinic, to discuss further instructions.

 

Contact your GP and Defined Beauty Clinic if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, unusual redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.

 

The Red Cross have suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months.

 

The entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases and colour changes during the healing cycle as explained by your specialist.

 

The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. The colour of the pigment will appear much darker the next day.

 

Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that colour is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, customer develop bald spots or lose original hair stroke which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal and why most clients need a touchup after 6 weeks.

 

Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial colour and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.  The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure.

 

Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.

 

Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen around SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun.  Sun exposure might cause the colour pigment to fade away more quickly. When using foundation, be aware when applying to avoid your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter.

 

You can now enjoy your beautiful new eyebrows.
