AFTER YOUR MICROBLADING

YOU CAN HAVE A COFFEE

Follow your after care

The instructions below have been fine-tuned through my years of experience to ensure clients get optimal results. So follow them with exactness to make the most of your microblading.

***FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTER-CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN SCARRING, INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION.

AFTER THE MICROBLADING PROCEDURE:

DAYS 1-4:

Wipe the microbladed area twice daily using the Phi wipes provided, followed by applying the microblading aftercare ointment. Continue this routine until the 2nd day. On the 3rd and 4th days, use cotton pads dampened with mineral water, ensuring they are pressed to almost dry. Gently clean your microbladed brows and apply the cream.

 

Avoid using cleansing products containing exfoliants or acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA). Utilize cotton buds to apply a small amount of the microblading aftercare ointment to the microbladed area. Only apply the ointment when the area is dry.

 

Adhere to a less-is-more approach when applying the ointment; the amount applied to each eyebrow should be equivalent to half of a grain of rice. Limit the application of microblading aftercare ointment to twice a day to allow the skin to breathe and support its natural healing process. Remember, the microbladed area should have no water contact for up to 10 days, and only the provided cream should be used.

DAYS 5-10:

From day 5 to day 10, don't wash or clean your microbladed brows anymore. Just let them be. To care for them, make sure they're completely dry by patting them gently with a clean tissue. After that, use a little bit of the aftercare ointment.

 

 Apply the ointment once or twice a day, or if your skin is oily, you can do it once or nothing at all, to let your skin heal naturally.

 

Day 10

Go back to your regular activities, but avoid laser treatments, chemical peels, exfoliation, and any creams with retinol or glycolic acid until after your microblading touch-up appointment and its healing process.

Healed Microblading and process

Microblading can go through this process.

PLEASE DON’T PANIC WHEN THIS HAPPENS. 

 

Help! 🆘 My eyebrows are peeling, I think they didn't work 😱🥹

 

Clients often share this concern during the healing process. This stage, typically around the 21st day, can be worrisome as the pigment may look faint or even disappear. However, as the skin cells regenerate, the pigment starts to return, marking the completion of the healing process. A 40% fade in pigment is usual by the end of this period, but individual healing varies greatly. Some retain up to 80% of the color, while others may lose almost 80%, and both outcomes are perfectly normal. Post-touch-up, most pigment remains on the skin as the body recognizes it as harmless. So, if you notice this fading, there's no need to panic—it's entirely normal.

Here is an example of a the Men's Microblading from start to the end before the touch-up. My client's skin here is normal. When you have an Oily skin, the healed result is different.

After undergoing microblading, the healed result of your skin will depend on various factors, including your individual skin type and how well you follow the aftercare instructions provided. Here are some general characteristics of the healed result for different skin types:

  1. Normal Skin: Normal skin generally heals well after microblading, with the pigment settling evenly and creating natural-looking, defined eyebrows. The color retention tends to be good, and the healed result appears smooth and consistent.

  2. Dry Skin: Dry skin may experience slightly more flaking and peeling during the healing process. It is important to keep the treated area moisturized to prevent excessive dryness, which can affect the color retention. Regular touch-ups may be needed to maintain the desired results.

  3. Oily Skin: Oily skin types may find that the healing process takes longer due to the higher oil production. The excess oil can cause the pigment to appear slightly softer initially, but with proper aftercare and touch-ups, the healed result can still be satisfactory.

4.  Combination Skin: Combination skin may        exhibit different healing characteristics in different areas. The oily parts may require extra care to control excess oil, while the drier areas may experience more peeling. Overall, the healed result can be successful with appropriate care and touch-ups as needed.

5.  Sensitive Skin: Individuals with sensitive skin may experience more redness and sensitivity during the healing process. It is crucial to follow the aftercare instructions carefully and avoid any irritants. The healed result can be beautiful and natural with proper care.
