Microblading Eyebrows Post-Care:
MICROBLADING EYEBROWS IS A "DRY HEAL" DO NOT GET WET, AND HEAVY SWEATING FOR 10 DAYS, SHADED EYBROWS ARE A 2-5 DAY DRY HEAL.
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss!
COMPLETELY avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyper pigmentation and scarring.
Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 3 weeks.
Avoid sweating for a full 10 days. Any physical effort, gym, hot weather, any other activity that may cause sweating through or on the brows will cause the "hairstrokes" to blur under the skin, there is no fixing this.
Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 10 days.
NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for two weeks.
NO facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
After 10 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun all day by the pool to stop the color from fading.
Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.
+++ Look in your foundations ingredients and primers too, its in things that say "long lasting" or "Forever" will slowly remove and ruin your eyebrows.
AVOID ANY SKINCARE ON THE TREATED AREA BY 2 INCHES THAT HAS THE WORDS "ACID" "RETIN A" "GLYCOL"
Keep fingers off of the eyes! The bacteria on the fingers and hands may cause "pink eye" which is a bacterial eye infection.
Only use the Vaseline provided to you after the procedure for 10 days, or as needed, you cannot over use them.DO NOT USE TOO MUCH VASELINE ON THE LINER AS IT CAN IRRITATE YOUR EYES, IN THIS CASE, MORE IS NOT BETTER.
Eyeliner can and will have some residual pigment that may peel or flake off after a couple days(in most cases)..that is ok..eyeliner tends to fade more so than brows due to the moisture in the eye area. After the touch up the color stays better and lasts longer….Eyeliner will take 2-3 procedures!
EYELINER- Typical Effects
Day1 Swollen like you’ve been crying, with a heavier eye makeup look.
Day2 Swollen, usually for only a few hours after waking up, with the heavier eye makeup look continuing.
Day3 Swelling decreases with a tight feeling. The pigments begin to lift away from the skin.
Day4 There is a “pinching” feeling. Some itching is normal as the skin begins to flake. DO NOT PICK AT IT.
Day5 Blinking movements of the eye usually removes all pigment by this day. Color is somewhat grayish and will take a few more days to clarify to full color.
Be careful as you pull on shirts or other garments over your face that you don’t brush the new tattoo accidentally. Also, don’t put any makeup on, particularly just after treatment. You might cause an infection or otherwise damage the tattoo. In the case of food, it may be challenging for a while to eat with tattooed lips, but it can be done. Avoid biting or licking your lips as much as possible, and make sure no food or drink stays on there.
Aftercare: Avoid Contact with Clothing, Makeup, Food and Sunlight. Take care not to expose your face to the sun for about two weeks after you get your tattoo. The sun will fade the pigment, which is still settling into your skin. Even after the tattoos have healed, be consistent with applying sunscreen to those areas of your face, to avoid fading. Lips can take 1-3 treatments for desired depth of color. Keeping lips moist daily will lengthen the time the pigment will last…everyone heals different.
Very Important: If you get cold sores or have ever had one in the past, you will need an antiviral prescription from your doctor before a lip procedure. Physicians usually instruct to take it 2 days before. As this procedure will bring out the virus if not medicated beforehand.
LIPS- Typical Effects
Day1 Swelling, tender, heavy thick lipstick look with a reddish brick color affect.
Day2 Slight swelling, reddish and tender with a slight metallic flavor.
Day3 Less swelling, thicker texture, sore, hot feeling before exfoliation with an orange color affect.
Day4 Exfoliation begins, very chapped lips.
Day5 Very chapped but almost finished with first chapping stage.
Day6 A soft rich color begins to appear.
Days7-13 Lip color disappears and the “frosty” chapping stage begins as a whitish/grayish haze on the lips.
Day14 Color blooms from within more and more each day until day 21.
Day21 Healing complete; the color you see is the color you have. Your lips will remain a bit dry for a month or two, use a good lip balm and they will return to normal, but with full color!
