AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MICROBLADING WITHOUT 3D SHADING

Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess fluid. Do this every 15 minutes until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph. Our goal is to ensure that the lymphatic drainage (clear fluid coming from treatment area) is cleaned off regularly in an effort to minimize the formation of scabs. If scabs do form, they can pull the pigment out. You will need to wash your new eyebrows with a mild, neutral soap (unscented baby soap, Cetaphil or Dove) 3-5 times a day the first day, then 2-3 times a day for the next 7 days. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants. Any pigment loss from washing will be replaced during your touch up. Next step-- MOISTURIZE. You want to make sure that you keep the area well moisturized, but NOT over moisturized. Apply a very small amount of aftercare ointment with a clean fingertip and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. you will just need a very thin layer. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

PLEASE BE PATIENT.

Important note about showering:

Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.

Your new brows will be up to 50% darker and thicker. It is normal to have an adjustment period.

Days 5-7, you may experience minor scabbing or flaking. DO NOT pick at the scabs or flaking skin.

Days 8-14, as your body heals, it is normal for your new brows to appear to be fading. This will subside and your brows will return.

Days 14-28, your brows will return and may appear a bit uneven and patchy. This is normal and will be taken care of at your touch up.

Your touch-up should be scheduled for 6-8 weeks after your initial visit. Please book this appointment ASAP so that you are able to secure your spot. We do book out many weeks in advance, and the price of the touch up does increase as more fading will occur outside of this window.
