The better your eyebrows are “prepped” the better results you will have. Healthy, non-sensitive, non-irritated eyebrows along with following proper aftercare have the best chance of beautifully healed results. Below is a list of things to avoid before getting your eyebrows microbladed.
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
After the procedure, gently blot the area with a clean tissue to absorb excess fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until the oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents scabbing. During the healing process the skin can be flaky but we want to avoid any hard scabs.
Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, 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 exfoliants.
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab or clean hands 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. You want it to fully absorb like lotion. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
Important note about showering/sweat:
Try and limit your showers to 5 minutes, washing your face last. Any form of sweating or hot steam will cause our pores to open. Anytime this happens it causes our crisp hairlike strokes to blur, effecting our desired realistic result.
