Aftercare for Microblading
Please follow these instructions for up to 14 days after the procedure to improve and prolong the results of Everlasting Brows.
• No makeup should be applied directly on the brows during the healing process.
• Avoid wetting brows during the healing process.
• Avoid sauna/steam rooms/sun beads during the healing process.
• Do not touch, rub, pick or scratch your brows following treatment or during the healing process.
• You may find that your eyebrows will scab or become slightly dry following the treatment. If they itch DO NOT SCRATCH them, please. Just tap them to release the itch.
• If your eyebrows get wet during the healing process pat them dry with a towel, DO NOT RUB.
• Apply your healing balm according to your therapist’s advice.
• The client can use a q-tip with soapy water to gently remove the previous layer of balm or to cleanse the eyebrows.
• Notify your therapist if a touch-up session is needed 4 – 6 weeks after the procedure.
• Avoid excess sun exposure as this can cause the pigment to fade and can affect the healing process.
• Avoid using daily skincare products directly on the eyebrows.
• If you are due to or are having an MRI scan, please inform your doctor that you have had microblading/semi-permanent makeup done.
• If you are planning a chemical peel or any other medical procedure, please inform the therapist of the procedure you have had. The procedure should only be done once the healing process is complete.
• If you are due to give blood after the procedure, please inform your nurse about the microblading treatment you had done as this might alter the results. Once healed you can enjoy your eyebrows to the fullest!
Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. A true reflection of healed color can only be assessed 3-4 weeks after treatment. Touch-up of the shape/design is recommended at least 4 weeks after initial treatment. It will go from too dark, to too light, to just right.
Immediately after the procedure, the pigment will appear very sharp and dark. This is because the pigment is still seating on top of your skin and has not yet settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually (please do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on the cotton swab as this is the excess pigment and/or body fluid that is naturally exiting your skin).
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.
Your eyebrows will be the lightest tones during days 5-12 because the color is absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin. Later skin cells push it back to the upper layers. Once the healing is completed, you will enjoy a pair of beautiful, new, natural looking eyebrows.
