MICROBLADING AFTERCARE

First off, thank you for choosing Skintricate Tattoo Company as your shop of choice!!

 

You have just received a professional, safe, and sterile microblading treatment. Throughout the procedure, we have done our part - now let's focus on your part.

 

It is now up to you to take care of your new brows, so remember it is normal for your eyebrows to become darker within the next 24hrs, and you can expect it to get scabby within the next 48-72hrs. Depending on your overall health and aftercare, the healing time varies from 2 - 3 weeks.

 

The day of the treatment: Absorb

  • Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped.  Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.

  • Before bed, gently wash your eyebrows with water and an antibacterial soap.

  • 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.  

Days 1-7: Wash and Moisturize

  • Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin. (Don't worry....THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)

  • Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil or Neutrogena.  

  • 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.  

  • Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab or clean fingertip and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Days 8 - 14

  • Wash once a day in the shower with non-scented soap and water.

  • Gently pat dry with a clean paper towel or towel. 

  • Your brows should be healed within 2 – 3 weeks, and you should be able to go back to your regular routine in!

  • I look forward to seeing you in 6 weeks for your touch up!

Be Patient and don’t freak out!

  • The tattooed area will appear darker and bolder in colour and more sharply defined for the first 7 days. Be patient and don’t freak out, this will settle!

  • Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It will appear as though the eyebrows are gone. Again, please be patient and don’t freak out!

  • Within 1 – 2 weeks the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.

  • Wait a minimum 4 weeks to see the true colour.

DO NOT!!

  • Minimal scabbing/flaking may take place: DO NOT rub, pick or scratch! Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away.

  • No swimming, suntanning, hot tubs, or bath tubs for two weeks. Do not immerse your brows in water.

  • No makeup, creams, or sunscreen on your brow area for 2 weeks.

  • No cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants for 2 weeks.

  • No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 2 weeks.

  • Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
