Microblading Aftercare Tips

Microblading isn't a one and done process. Following proper aftercare is crucial for healing and getting the best possible result.

Here's what you need to know.

What Is Microblading

Microblading is a manual form of eyebrow tattooing using a handheld tool to create hairlike strokes. A small amount of pigment is placed on the edge of a grouping of needles and implanted into the skin. It typically fades within a year or two; resulting in the need for more regular touch ups to keep the strokes looking fresh. Microblading is great for replacing hairs or reinforcing the shape of a brown. 

Immediate Aftercare

To ensure proper healing and color retention, aftercare is crucial. During the full 10 day healing period, be sure to follow these instructions. 

First 48 Hours: Let your brow tattoo DRY HEAL FOR 48 HOURS after the procedure.  

After 48 Hours: Apply a small amount of Aquaphor and press into brow to form a thin layer of moisture/protection. Repeat this process 1-2 times a day (as needed) for 2 WEEKS. Be sure to also use antibacterial soap with lukewarm water to gently clean your brow tattoo 1-2 times a day.

First Touch Up

Microblading is a minimum 2 step process. Your First Session will build shape and symmetry. The Second Session will perfect the brows and add density.  Your First Touch Up/Second Session will occur within the first 6-8 weeks after the First Session. Be sure to book your touch up appointment ASAP. Due to high demand, it usually takes about 2 months to get a touch up appointment.

If you fail to schedule your Second Session in a timely manner, you risk tattoo fading which additional charges may apply. 

Long-Term Care

Additional Touch Ups. To keep your brows looking full, additional touch ups are required every 9-12 months.

Protect Your Brows With SPF. Be sure to use at least SPF 50 to protect your brows from sun exposure, which can cause fading and alter the color of your tattoo. 

Avoid Exfoliants and Lasers on Brow Area. Also avoid chemical exfoliants on brows; they will cause brows to fade faster, too. And DO NOT LASER your brow area. Some lasers can change the color of the ink.
