After Care

Cosmetic Tattoo (Eyebrows)

AFTERCARE is so important. I just finished a beautiful microblading procedure for you. Now, your job is to apply good aftercare to keep it. You must follow the steps below EXACTLY so that your eyebrows will heal into a nice, natural color and will last a long time. Remember that your eyebrows are healing so it is normal for your eyebrows to be red, dark, and may continue to peel within the next 3 weeks. DO NOT WORRY, after 4 weeks, the strokes will come back. During your touchup at/after 6 weeks, we will perfect the look of your eyebrows.

DAY 1

To minimize scabbing, lightly dab off visible plasma fluid every 15-20 minutes using the provided sterile water wipes in the first hour after your procedure. After this initial hour, you may wash eyebrows once an hour for the next 5 hours using water and gentle soap (Cetaphil). Use finger tips to gently wash, rinse with warm water, and softly pat to dry. DO NOT RUB. Apply a thin layer of ointment after each wash. Wash, dry and apply ointment once more before bedtime.

DAY 2

Wash 3-4 times a day, pat dry and reapply ointment after every wash to keep the eyebrows moist. Reapply ointment as needed and continue to keep brows moist throughout the day.

DAY 3-10

Wash only once a day (before bedtime) and avoid getting brows wet throughout the day until fully healed. Apply ointment 3-4 times a day or as needed to keep the eyebrows moist. Before showering, apply ointment onto eyebrows to prevent getting the eyebrows wet OR limit showers to 5 minutes to avoid excessive steam. Wash hair last to minimize water exposure on eyebrows.

Things to Keep In Mind

• Avoid strenuous activities that may cause increased perspiration for 10 days.
• Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks.
• No makeup or any products on the eyebrows until fully healed
   (usually 10 days).
• No makeup or any products on the eyebrows until fully healed
   (usually 10 days).
• Avoid laser or chemical treatment on the face for 30 days.
• No Botox (or similar) for 4-6 weeks
• Do not peel off scabs or scratch the eyebrows.
• No waxing until the procedure area is healed.
• Avoid sleeping on your face.
