  1. 24 hours after you are done with your first procedure:

    1. Using cleaned hands, gently wash your face again WETTING THE EYEBROWS WITH WATER ONLY.

    2. Air-dry eyebrows for 30 minutes and apply small amount of post-care* cream to prevent excess scabbing. 

Important Washing Instructions:

  1. Always wash your hands with soap before washing your eyebrows and/or applying the post-care cream.

  2. When applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab or Q-tip, use nonaggressive movements and/or manipulation of the skin. Small amount please!

  3. Do this fully for the first 3 to 5 days (only do 5 days if you feel itchy and develop more scabs, if not 3 days should be ok).

What to expect after you microblading session – Read Carefully

Your new temporary eyebrow will go through several phases during healing cycle. The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure and the next couple of days. This is due to the pigment being on top of your skin mixes with the scab and it has not settled completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. It will look dark before it goes lighter!!

Do NOT be alarmed if you see some pigment coming out on the cotton swab as this is excess pigment and/or body fluid that is naturally exiting your skin. DO NOT take out the scab, the pigment could be mixed with it and it may pull out the pigment. The eyebrow may look uneven with patches while healing, please be patient. The pigment will fade an average but not limited to about 40%-60%. Everyone heals and retains the pigment differently therefore you will need to touchup to refresh your color.

Please do not compare other client procedures your skin cells have different cycles then others, we all have different skin. 

Once your skin starts to heal, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This may give you that impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly, however, this is just superficial color. Once completely healed, I advise to apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30-50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun, not an excessively oily sunscreen particularly if you have oily skin as this could push the pigment out. 

Please know that many factors affect how long the pigment lasts on your skin and a 4-6-week touchup is a MUST FOR BETTER RESULTS.

After you complete all steps you will LOVE your new brows!!
