It is essential that you follow these instructions after your Microblading or Microshading session:
Make sure your hands are completely clean before caring for your eyebrows.
For the first 2 hours after treatment, use a clean, DRY tissue or cotton pad to dab your brows as often as possible (this will reduce scabbing).
2 hours after treatment: Dampen a cotton pad with water and gently dab your brows clean. Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on the pad. Once the area has completely dried, use a Q-Tip to apply a VERY THIN layer of the provided treatment cream to your eyebrows. Repeat this wash/dry/moisturize process once every hour until bedtime. Use no aggressive movement and/or manipulation of the skin.
Days 2-7: Repeat the wash/dry/moisturize process ONCE daily. You can begin to use a gentle cleanser now for the washing step.
Try not to get your brows wet for any length of time, except during the cleaning process. If your brows get wet, simply dry them as quickly as possible with a clean towel/ tissue or a blow dryer on the cool setting.
If you are a side or stomach sleeper, you may consider propping yourself with pillows to prevent sleeping on your eyebrows for a few days.
The following must be avoided during all 7 days post-procedure:
• Increased sweating
• Practicing sports
• Hot sauna, hot baths, lengthy showers or jacuzzi use
• Sun tanning or salon tanning
• Lasers, chemical peels, or use of creams containing retinoids or acids
• Picking, peeling, or scratching the pigmented area
• Heavy household tasks that involve a lot of airborne debris
• Smoking or drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing
• Touching the eyebrows except when cleaning them
Your eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure, but the color of the pigment will soften gradually. Around day 4, your skin will become flaky and/or scabby, and you will notice some pigment flaking off.
Right after your brows heal, it may appear that the pigment is too light. Your skin forms new layers over the pigment which can make the color look "foggy" temporarily. It will take a few weeks for the pigment to fully resurface- this is why we wait 6 weeks before the perfecting session. After the first week, you will be able to wear makeup if necessary to cover any patchy areas between the two treatments. Once completely healed, always apply SPF 30+ sunscreen to your eyebrows when exposed to the sun, to avoid the pigment fading prematurely.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing process, please contact Whitney to discuss further instructions.
