Microblading Healing Instructions
Let's talk healing! I know many of you are new to the process of microblading, and that's totally ok! A touch up is ABSOLUTELY necessary to ensure desired results. Scabbing and brow lightening is totally normal during the healing process after your first session. Unlike a tattoo, I am only entering the first layer of your skin (the epidermis) which is why you will need yearly touch ups to refresh the color. It is VERY important to follow post procedure instructions such as:
When showering, make sure to avoid the brow area for the first 7 days. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to clean around the brow area.
Do not submerge them in water, swim or use a sauna for the first 14 days.
Absolutely no excessive sweating (from work/exercise) for 7-10 days while healing.
No facials, chemical treatments, and/or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks after the procedure.
Avoid direct sun exposure for the first 4 weeks after procedure. If you must be outside, please wear a hat or visor.
New skin forming causes your brows to appear lighter during the early stages of healing. Do not rub, pick at scabs or scratch the brow area while healing.
DRY HEAL. Do not rub, touch, or wet your brows for at least 10 days) you may wipe them with a clean wipe if necessary.
Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and removal of pigment.
Exfoliation of the top layer of the brow in normal from day 4-10.
Excessive fading may occur in sensitive or oily skin types and for reasons we can not foresee. Although uncommon, sometimes multiple sessions may be necessary to determine causes of fading and to find the best approach for your skin. Results may vary from person to person.
