AFTER CARE

(MICROBLADING, NANO BROWS + POWDER BROWS)

Congratulations on your new hassle-free brows!

Please refer to the aftercare steps below for the best results. 

NOTE: Your brow area may show redness + swelling and

 the color of them may look dark and intense. 

THIS IS NORMAL!

For the first 48-hours, keep your brows completely dry. Avoid showering, sweat, water, steam, direct sunlight, crying upside down, water parks, water balloon fights, etc. 

After the first 48-hours, wash your brows with a non-scented, antibacterial soap, such as Dial (liquid form or bar... it doesn't matter). Get the soap foamy in your hands first and then gently PRESS into your brows, DO NOT SCRUB OR RUB THEM! Finally, splash with water + pat dry with a paper towel. Apply a small amount (size of a grain of rice) of Tattoo Goo to each brow.

Day 3-7 & for the next four (4) days, avoid submerging your brows, excessive sweating, direct sunlight, and use of makeup on your brows. Repeat the steps above and apply Tattoo Goo once per day. During this period, you will notice your brows are significantly darker. THIS IS EXPECTED. They will begin to fade in the next stage of your healing process.  If you feel that they are peeling or flaking more than expected, you may apply Tattoo Goo twice a day.

During week 2, your brows will begin to lightly flake and become lighter in color. They will look as though they are "disappearing". THIS IS NORMAL. Your brow area may be itchy, DO NOT SCRATCH OR PICK at the area. You may now use makeup on your brows if needed. You can also begin to work out, submerging your brows in water, and applying waterproof sunscreen if you are in direct sunlight to prevent color fading. Literally the sun is your worst enemy, protect your investment!

Weeks 3 + 4, you are close to the final stages of your healing process. Your brows should begin to "re-appear" and their true color will become visible. You may continue to apply Tattoo Goo to your brows if they become dry or continue to lightly flake.

During your perfecting appointment  (5-8 weeks after your initial session), we will go over any lines that may have been absorbed during your healing process. *NOTE: You lose about 30% - 40% of color pigment after your first session. The perfecting appointment is the ultimate time to alter the shape, size, and color if you would like to make changes. 

Other Things To Know + Friendly Reminders

+ Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed. A 5-8 week healing time is required before any more work can be undertaken.

+ Strong chemicals or Glycolic Acid or peels of any kind may cause the pigment to lighten.  Always call us and check with your consultant if in any doubt.

DO NOT PICK, PULL or SCRATCH at the treated area, as it will result in pigment loss.  

+ You may notice whiteness (blanching) or a color, like yellow or orange, around the area immediately after we're finished. This is quite normal and will subside within a few hours! The whitening around the brow is a result of the Lidocaine and the color seeping is due to a modifying pigment used during your treatment. Normal, don't panic!


+ If you find any lymphatic fluid (plasma) or blood seeping, you can gently clean the area with saline, cool boiled water and gauze, blotting gently dry to remove any moisture.

+ Tattoo Goo is to be added to the brow using your clean finger. Gently apply the Tattoo Goo® supplied to you during your session once a day unless instructed otherwise. Repeat the application of Tattoo Goo®

up to 3 times a day, if the brow area feels tight and dry.

 

+ You should NOT have thick scabs - if this happens, please call us. The "scabs" you'll have are as thin as a hair and that's completely normal. 

+ Giving Blood – The Red Cross have suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following treatment.

 

+ MRI Scans – This procedure shows up as an artifact on the scan. Some clients may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist.

+ Injectables – Dermal fillers and Botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. Injectables should be carried out after a Microblading procedure and not prior; if you have gotten them less than 3 weeks prior to your appointment, you need to reschedule.  

+ Laser /Pulsed Light – Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments can cause color change – it is important to advise the therapist that you have had Microblading procedure as this cannot be rectified with another Microblading procedure.

+ Color Refresh – To keep your new, hassle-free brows looking at their very best, it is recommended that you have a color refresh procedure every 12-18 months for Microblading and every 18-24 months for Nano/Powder Brows.

Your brows will be going through a "roller coaster" of changes over the next 5-8 weeks. Hang tight! All of these changes are completely normal. If you believe your brows may be infected please contact your medical provider immediately. Infection should not occur if you follow the aftercare instructions correctly and use them effectively. 

We hope you love your new brows + look forward to seeing you again soon! Should you have any questions or concerns, please DO NOT assume.
