Healing Process

Microblading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure.

After 5-7 days, make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment (A&D ointment or grape seed oil) with a q-tip. This can be done once at night time, but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself. Please continue to apply the ointment for 7 days. Before putting on ointment, wipe the brows with one spray of alcohol or witch hazel on gauze. The skin should still look dry and not shiny. 
If eyebrows are kept clean and dry, only a thin film of skin (not a scab) will appear and start to peel around day 7. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear. The skin will peel by itself gently on day 7-10. Do not touch or scratch at your brows until fully healed. It’s normal for dryness and flakiness to appear after peeling. Leave them alone, they will return to normal once they are healed. If you apply lotion or cream to them before they are healed it will draw the ink out which will make them fade. 
Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the shower head or take a bath. If water, sebum, or sweat contacts the wound, it will expand and a scab will appear. This scab is usually itchy and should not be peeled. If scratching or peeling of that area occurs, you can cause scarring and rid the area of pigment. 
If skin is sensitive, on the next day of treatment, the area around the strokes can turn red because the skin was irritated. This will return to normal after a few days. Strokes will appear darker in the next few days after treatment and then become about 40% lighter again after peeling.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure:

    Increased sweating

    Practicing sports


    Hot sauna, hot bath, or jacuzzi

    Sun tanning or salon tanning

    UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

    Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck

    Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment

    Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris

    Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds

    Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

    Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Microblading LA immediately, to discuss further instructions.

Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.


What to Expect From Your New Brows

Entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.

The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day. Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, customer develop bald spots or lose original hair stroke which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That’s is the reason why most customers need a touchup after 6 weeks.

Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure. Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.

Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. When using foundation, be aware when applying to avoid your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter.
