Our Guide to Eyebrow Microblading Aftercare
No contact with water, lotion, soap, or makeup
First of all, you need to make sure that your eyebrow area must not come into contact with water, lotion, soap, or any makeup product during the first 7-10 days after the microblading procedure. Healing time varies from person to person. Could be shorter or longer span.
Thus, whenever you want to wash your face, be extra careful. When taking a shower, keep the showerhead away from your face. Alternatively, you can take a bath in a bathtub or use a bucket and mug for cleansing to ensure that water doesn’t get in touch with your eyebrow area.
No touching, picking or scratching on the treated brow area
Itching and flaking may appear during the first week of the post microblading procedure. It is strictly recommended to avoid picking or scratching. Otherwise, you may end up pulling off scabs prematurely that can lead to patchy results or evens scarring.
Avoid Certain Activities Post Microblading Procedure
For at least two weeks, you should avoid any activity that puts strain on your brow and head area or causes sweating or increased blood flow in that area. Some of the activities that might not be safe for your eyebrows during the initial days after microblading are:
• Strenuous exercises that cause sweating
• Practicing sports or games
• Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
• Sun tanning or salon tanning
• Exposure to UV/UVA rays
• Exposure to chemicals
• Picking, peeling, or scratching in the treated area
• Household tasks, such as intensive cleaning, in areas where there is a lot of dirt or airborne debris
• Drinking alcohol because it may lead to slow healing of wounds
• Driving in open vehicles that expose you to air, such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
• Any laser sessions, chemical sessions, peelings, or any creams that contain Retin-A or glycolic acid on the session area
• Touching the treated area (use cotton swab when applying ointment or clean it from the brow area)
In case you happen to face any problem or unexpected issue with the healing after using eyebrow microblading service, please don’t hesitate or wait to consult your microblading artist to discuss further instructions. If you follow the microblading aftercare instructions properly and don’t do any activity that might affect the treated brow area, then you are least likely to experience any problem regarding healing of your microblading eyebrows.
