After Microblading Procedure
Please note that after your procedure it is perfectly normal to experience any of the following: swelling, redness, itching, dryness, flaking. Do not worry! These symptoms will dissipate.
Also, the color of your eyebrows will look darker after your procedure. 40% to 60% of this darkened color will fade. The Microblading healing process and color uptake is different for every patient. Please understand that Microblading is two-step procedure and it is necessary for us to schedule your second and final procedure 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment. The final procedure is to touch-up and complete your new look.
The reason we start with a darker color is because the color will fade as it heals. Immediately after your procedure the hair strokes will appear darker, as it heals the darker color will soften. All clients heal differently. There is no way to control how each client’s body will retain pigment. It is very common in many clients to experience pigment fading in patches after the initial procedure. This is why a second appointment is necessary for Microblading to touch-up and complete your new look!
- For the first ten days after your procedure, do not sweat, go to a sauna or swimming pool. Do not use any creams on your eyebrows or soak them in water. Avoid exposure to the sun. Do not scratch, pick or touch the treated area. This is very important!
- Avoid direct sunlight exposure for the first month after your procedure.
- Do not have any facials, use chemical peels or microdermabrasion for two months after your procedure.
- Also avoid use of products containing Retin-A, acids, as well as anti-aging products that are applied on your forehead or eyebrows area. Acid products will fade permanent makeup!
- Please be aware that smoking will cause the pigment to fade prematurely.
Microblading is not a permanent enhancement to your natural eyebrows. Microblading can last up from 1 to 1.5 years. You will need a color boost after this time.
Permanent makeup is an art, not a science. Your final result and healing process will be different compared to every other client. You may still need to use products such as a pencil even after Microblading.
It is very important that you follow all the rules written here both before and after your procedure, one mistake may ruin your results.
