The most important thing that goes into a successful microblading/permanent makeup procedure is how well the client follows the aftercare procedure. You want to make sure to keep the area moist with Aquaphor, all day long 24/7 for at least 10 days. This will allow the color to set in and avoid oxygen from hitting your brows and changing the color while it is setting in.
DO NOT WASH THE PROCEDURE FOR 24-48 HOURS!
Avoid for 10 days: Makeup (on procedure area), Extreme Sweating, Swimming, Tanning, Hot Sauna, and Laser/Chemical/Botox Treatments.
Aquaphor Is Your Best Friend
-Use a cotton swab to apply Aquaphor Ointment throughout the day for 2-4 weeks (the area should never be dry).
-For the first 4 hours after the procedure, pat the procedure area with a paper towel every 30 minutes to remove excess blood/fluid.
-Do not touch the procedure are with your fingers as they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.
-We suggest Aquaphor because it tends to not cause inflammation, but if you are allergic, Vaseline will do just fine.
-Always use a “total sun block” sunscreen until the area has fully healed to prevent future fading of pigment color.
-Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area as they will fade the color (Example: Glycolic, Lactic Acids)
Additional Instructions For Lips
-Ice your lips every 30 minutes on the day of the procedure to prevent bruising & swelling.
-Avoid for 1 day: tooth paste and hot foods.
-Avoid for 3 days: teeth whiteners, spicy food/drinks, lemon, salt, and vinegar. Use a straw for the following: coffee, wine, and any drinks that will stain. Wear a hat to shield the area from the sun when you go outside.
Additional Instructions For Eyeliner
-Ice your eyes every 30 minutes on the day of the procedure to prevent bruising & swelling.
