Everything is individual (the quality of preparation for the procedure also matters). But you should know the main thing – the established pigment shade is not an indicator of healed skin. On the contrary, older skin needs more time – at least 4-5 weeks.

The skin heals quickly and without any problems. There may be a slight amount of lymph during the first twenty-four hours. Remove it with micellar water and a cotton pad. Unlike other techniques, the crusts after the powder eyebrow procedure look very light peeling. However, it would be best not to try to remove it either. It is necessary to let the skin drain on its own. During the regeneration and recovery of the skin, do not go to the sauna tanning salon. It would be best if you would not visit swimming pools until the skin healed utterly, as chlorinated water can cause damage by getting into the injured dermis. During the week, you should choose to exercise moderately to avoid getting a sweat on your still-healing eyebrows. Also, to prevent sweating, exclude prolonged stay in hot rooms.

As soon as the crusts come off, all prohibitions cancel.

Powder Eyebrow Tattoo Aftercare: Day by Day Overview

There are specific rules of care for the Powder Brows area that guarantee quick healing of the dermis and its recovery. We recommend strict adherence to them for a good result.

Day 1-2

Immediately after the session, the skin will be swollen and red. Once the body’s initial reaction has passed (about 1-2 hours), the injured skin will begin to secrete (lymph), which you need to get rid of immediately. Get rid of the lymph with a remedy that your artist recommended. If you do not wipe off the lymph in time, keeping the skin moist, the skin will become dry, and the lymph fluid will dry out, turning into a thick, rough and ugly crust. The best option is micellar water. Micellar water can purchase at the drugstore. Wipe the area with a cotton swab. A cotton swab soaked in micellar water should be gently worked into the skin, pressing lightly on the spot. Do not rub too hard – you can further traumatize the already thin dermis. Alternatively, you can use a clean, soft, lint-free cloth. This simple procedure should be done as often as possible for the first few hours without letting the lymph dry out. Typically, it’s every 15 to 20 minutes. The frequency will decrease as the skin begins the healing process, so less lymph is released. While the lymph fluid is active, you should not wash your face. Use micellar water in the brow area. The master recommends the additional use of other products (petroleum jelly) and naming the optimal products for revitalization. Often no other ointments are required. However, if they still recon, they should be applied in a weak layer and not too often (no more than three times a day). A thick layer of thick ointment will clog pores and slow down the skin’s healing process. It also needs to follow the instructions when using the product.

Day 2-3

A day later, the eyebrows will become darker on the second day because of pigment adaptation and mixing the colour with the lymph secreted during the night. The lymph is usually no longer perspired during this period, but if this happens. It must remove according to the previous scheme. The care should follow the Artist’s recommendations. If the specialist indicated that respect is unnecessary, you should not engage in “self-medication” to apply the skin independently selected products. If the Artist suggests a specific healing ointment, don’t use it more than 3 – To 4 times a day. The cream should be applied thinly for 2 hours and then gently wiped with a wet cotton swab. During this period, try not to wet the skin, not use hot water, and not steam the area. Therefore, lying in the bathtub and going to the pool are prohibited. It is also strictly forbidden to use decorative cosmetics for eyebrows and conduct any cosmetic procedures over them.

Days 3-7

On the third day, crusts begin to appear. It’s difficult to say what they will be, and it depends on the body’s reaction and the quality of care of the dermis in the previous two days. Brows can be thick ( it’s infrequent), but more often than not, especially in powder eyebrows treatment, the crusts are slightly peeling. In any case, whatever the crusts are, you should not try to tear them off, speed up the process of their departure. Dead skin should come off without your help. If the process of skin detachment is not disturbed, it will happen within 2-3 days. The formation of itching indicates the healing of the skin, which is a proper and regular process. You should not scratch the area, but if the itching is severe, you can relieve the irritation by pressing your fingers near the tattoo. You can also use a cotton swab, pressing lightly along the eyebrows (above them). Washing with water is allowed, but you can use it at warm or room temperature. You can wash your face with baby soap or micellar water. During this period, there is a distinct feeling of dryness and tightness of the skin in permanent makeup. If the crusts are rough, they can be softened and moisturized with the help of ordinary petroleum jelly, which you can find and buy in every drugstore. The fastest way to descend tough crusts is moisturized skin. If they are thin, you do not need to do anything like a film. Such peeling indicates that care was perfect correctly, and the effect of permanent makeup will be closest to the ideal.

Days 7-14

By the end of the first week, the crusts gradually come off. They should still not be touched, as this can cause damage to the skin, pigment coming out and uneven distribution. After the crusts are entirely gone, the pigment shade will become lighter, but within a short time (a day or two), it will darken slightly again. The amount of residue and the pigment shadow are individual, but the shade can change. Skincare is over.

The main thing in post-procedure care is to treat the crusts very carefully. Of course, the crusts can be damaged in their sleep while wearing clothes, but still, the main danger is getting wet.

Eyebrow tattoo Aftercare – Main Takeaways

aftercare microblading

For properly healed and good looking powdered eyebrows, post-procedure care by day will look like this: 

  1. It is only possible to assess what protocol of action will suit your skin specifically. Therefore, in the care of the eyebrows after the cosmetic powder eyebrow tattoo, you need to prioritize the instructions of your master. After finishing the procedure, the master will apply vaseline and give detailed recommendations for individualized care. 
  2. After 1-2 hours, when the swelling subsides, and the crusting comes through, it should be regularly wiped with a cotton sponge with micellar water without pressing hard. If this is not ready, the lymph will harden into a thick crust, under which the skin will be harder and longer to heal. The whole first day, it is worth wiping the cosmetic tattoo area every 3-4 hours. Essential that you can not dry the skin in this case. If the master has recommended a healing ointment, follow his recommendations and instructions to the medium. Apply them thinly, no more than four times a day for a couple of hours, and wipe them with a wet cotton swab and self-medication is unnecessary. 
  3. The next day you’ll notice that the colour of your eyebrows becomes darker. Do not be alarmed. Just pigment mixed with the lymph: the body needs time to accept the new substance. 
  4. Eyebrow spraying care is the most responsible in the first few days. 
  5. For a week, your main task is to hold on and not touch the crusts, which may appear as they heal. In 7-12 days, they will peel off without intervention. It depends on the technique of introducing the pigments—the artist’s professionalism, the depth of work, and the individual characteristics of your skin. Do not be alarmed if you feel any itching: this is a natural reaction to skin regeneration. It means that the cosmetic tattoo is healing, and everything is going as it should. 
  6. For two weeks, you are prohibited from baths, saunas, steaming of the skin, UV-light (solarium visits, and an extended stay in the active sun). It is essential to wash and clean the cosmetic tattoo area gently but do it with a micellar. 
  7. It is desirable to introduce the habit of sleeping on your back to avoid accidentally damaging the fresh permanent on the pillow at night. When the crusts after the correction of the brow powdering are gone, care according to the unique recommendations is no longer required. If the crusts are thin, no additional treatment is needed. If the crusts have become complex and thick, you can moisten them with petroleum jelly, but try to remove them in no case.
