Aftercare

Aftercare

Do not worry that the treated area may show redness and swelling and that the colour looks dark and intense. This is perfectly normal and is nothing to worry about. By the time you are due for you top up 4-6 weeks later you will have noticed the colour has faded at least 60% from the initial colour that was implanted.

The colour is up to 50% darker straight after the treatment. It will fade after 4-7 days and the true colour will not come through until up to 4 weeks after initial treatment. During the healing process, the colour may seem to have disappeared or appear patchy, as it is obscured by the healing skin. This is normal and it will return.

They fade to almost nothing but what you must remember is that it is a two part process and that you will not see your final results until you have had your 6 week top up. This is where the second session is extremely important – it reinforces the pigment.

You may notice whiteness or blanching around the area. This is quite normal and will subside within 12 hours.

You will go through three healing phases:

Heal

Following your treatment, you may notice whiteness or blanching around the area this will subside within 12 hours. In addition, the treated area may have some redness/ swelling and the colour looks dark and intense. This is perfectly normal and is nothing to worry about. The colour is up to 50% darker straight after the treatment. It will fade after 4-7 days and the true colour will not come through until up to 4 weeks after initial treatment.

Peel

The next 3 or 4 days following your treatment the area will scab over and may feel tight, this may vary to each individual. This will gradually peel over the next few days.

Fade

During the healing process, the colour may seem to have disappeared or appear patchy, as it is obscured by the healing skin. This is normal and it will return. The hair strokes fade to almost nothing but what you must remember is that it is a two part process and that you will not see your final results until you have had your top up. By the time you are due for you top up 4-6 weeks later you will have noticed the colour has faded at least 60% from the initial colour that was implanted. This is where the second session is extremely important – it reinforces the pigment.

Try to avoid getting your brows wet in the shower at the gym etc. until the area has healed (approx 10 days).

It will take 24 hours for the area to create a protective barrier, and approximately a week for the area to settle down and heal.

Within the next 3 or 4 days of your treatment, the area will lightly scab over and may feel tight. DO NOT pick or pull at the treated area as this will result in pigment loss.

A top up will only take place once the brows have completely healed, this is generally 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment. Any work on the area beforehand can cause damage to the skin and cause scarring.

DO NOT apply makeup over the area for approximately 10 days. After this period it is fine but you must make sure you use new products to avoid cross infection/ contamination.

We recommend dry healing, so do not apply any healing balms or products to the area.

Keep exfoliators and glycolic acid/peels away from the treated area as they may cause the pigment to lighten.

Avoid sun exposure for approx 14 days after your microblading and when going into the sun, it is advised to always wear a total sunblock on your brow area, to prevent colour from fading whilst out in the sun or during sunbed sessions.

If aftercare is not followed then your brows will not heal correctly and results will be poor.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING…

The Red Cross have suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following any semi permanent procedure.

This procedure shows up as an artefact on the scan. Some clients may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist.

Dermal fillers and botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. The client should be advised that injectables should be carried out after a microblading procedure and not prior.

Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments can cause colour change. It is important to advise the therapist that you have had a microblading procedure previously as this cannot be rectified with another microblading procedure.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONTACT YOUR THERAPIST IMMEDIATELY IF YOU FEEL THAT YOUR PROCEDURE IS NOT HEALING AS LISTED AND EXPLAINED.
