Microblading After Care
Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. Itching and flaking may appear during the first 7-14 days post Brow procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms should quickly disappear.
10-14 Days Post Treatment Instructions
Day 1-2: “Blot” for Lymph fluid removal, wipes will help prevent too much crusting or scabbing. Cut Wipes 3 times then store in baggy and use every hour or more.
Day 2-4: “Wash” AM/PM by Use a small drop of Aftercare Cleanser mix with water on fingertips for 10 seconds (as shown) Gently wash then rinse NOTE: Small amount of water, not soaking to treated area to Promote healing, soft cloth.
Day 3-10: Let Brows “Dry” completely before applying antibiotic and/or balm. Apply small grain of rice size. Do not over apply. This could suffocate the skin and delay healing. Am/PM if you’re not oily, then you may not need any added moisture.
Days 5-7: When “Flaking stage” begins, Wash only around brows…Not on them. When the skin has completed shedding and back to normal then you may wash and add balm.

- Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
- Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
What to Expect During and After Your Microblading Session
Another factor to consider is the phases of healing that your eyebrows will go through. In the first week of healing, your brows will be very bold in color and look slightly unnatural as some of the pigment rises to the surface and creates tiny scabs over each stroke. After about a week (sometimes sooner for some people), your brows will begin peeling and the little scabs will start falling off. For some people, it just gets a little flaky. For others, there may be larger amounts of flakiness. This is not the time to be going to a party. While brows are still healing; you cannot cover it up with makeup just yet. This could cause infections if skin is still not healed. Until the flaking is completely done, your best bet is to let your brows do their thing without any interference. Remember you may not want to plan any events during 10 days of healing process, due to you maybe flaking.
With microblading, your eyebrows post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new brows. The entire healing process will take 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
