All About Microblading Aftercare

The Microblading Eyebrows tattooing makes perfectly shaped and attractive eyebrows for each woman regardless of age. Most importantly, the artist selects the right pigment’s colour, shape, and saturation, trying to create a bright but natural look. As a result, a beautiful woman gets perfect eyebrows and a luxurious look.
The cosmetic tattoo treatment is a step-by-step process. One of the main stages is microblading aftercare. But the perfect effect of microblading and powder eyebrows, as the most popular tattooing techniques, depends not only on the Artist’s training, experience, and skill.

Why is post-microblading brows tattoo care so important?

Even the most popular microblading eyebrows tattoo and other cosmetic tattooing techniques involve injury to the dermis. During the tattooing process, a thin needle is inserted into the upper layers of the skin, resulting in thinning and vulnerability. Micro wounds are formed, through which infection can enter if the skin is not cared for after the procedure. Hygiene is one of the essential requirements. In negotiation, the consequences can be unpredictable. At best, the effect of permanent make-up can change. It can become unsightly. The pigment can entirely or partially disappear, become blotchy, or lose its shade. In the worst case, an infection could result, causing redness, abscesses, and other adverse reactions. It’s why care is so critical.

The masseur does initial care immediately after the procedure by applying an antibacterial healing agent to the area. Artist makes recommendations for the maintenance of the client. It should always note that this care is an individual matter and depends on the body’s reaction to the eyebrow tattoo procedure. Sometimes the artist may recommend not to do anything with the skin in the recovery period and sometimes make a list of activities and products in a certain period. The main thing is to follow all actions recommended by the master.

We have already written about the preparation for the permanent in detail here. We recommend reading. Remember, if you do not feel well on the day or day of the procedure, it must be postponed. Also, keep in mind that during pregnancy and breastfeeding, only powder eyebrows can be done with the consent of the session without an anesthetic. The other techniques are not performed without an anesthetic and are therefore prohibited for women in pregnancy.

Microblading Before care

Preparation for the procedure, as one of the steps

To get a beautiful and correct eyebrow permanent effect, it is essential to properly care for the affected area after and before the session. There are a few recommendations on how to prepare for the procedure:

  • Do not traumatize the skin before going to the technician. Do not pluck or color your eyebrows before the treatment or perform cosmetic or beauty treatments. Prohibited In particular, scrubbing, peeling, Botox, and lamination of eyebrows are forbidden;
  • Postpone the procedure if the future tattoo formed inflammatory processes—for example, herpes or skin injury (wounds, cuts, abrasions).

When the skin has healed and recovered, the artist does the eyebrow tattooing. Remember to postpone if you do not feel well on the day or day of the procedure. Also, keep in mind that you can’t have any tattooing treatments during pregnancy and breastfeeding. 

Rules for skincare after microblading

Particular post-Cosmetic Tattoo care instructions ensure quick healing and regeneration of the dermis. We recommend strict adherence to them for a good result.

Treatment day

Immediately after the procedure, the skin will be swollen and reddened. Once the body’s initial reaction has passed (in about 1-2 hours), there will be oozing (lymph) from the damaged skin, which must be treated immediately.

Immediately after the session, the skin will be swollen and reddened. Once the body’s initial reaction has passed (approx. 1-2 hours), sundry (lymph) will begin to ooze from the traumatized skin and must be immediately disposed of.

If the lymph is not wiped off in time, keeping the skin moist will dry, and the lymph fluid will dry out, becoming a thick, rough, and unsightly crust. Get rid of the lymph secreted with an antibacterial cleanser that dries the skin. Chlorhexidine is the best option, but any other product bought by the chemist can be used. The area should be wiped with a cotton swab. A clean, soft, lint-free cloth can be an alternative. A cotton swab dipped in chlorhexidine should be used to gently rub the skin by applying gentle pressure to the area. Do not rub too hard – you could further traumatize the already delicate dermis.

This simple procedure should be done as often as possible during the first few hours, without letting the lymph dry out. As a rule, it should be done every 15-20 minutes. The frequency will decrease as the skin has begun the healing process, so less lymph is released. While the lymphatic fluid is actively produced, it is not worth washing your face. You can fly with warm (not hot!) water in the evening, using micellar water or liquid baby soap.

The handyman recommended additional use of other remedies (Vaseline, Bepanthen, etc.), and also mentioned the name of the treatment that is optimal for the healing process. Often other ointments are not necessary. But if they are recommended, they should be applied in a very thin layer and not too often (not more than four times a day). A thick layer of thick ointment will clog pores and slow down the skin’s healing process. We also recommend following the instructions when using the product.

The next day

After 24 hours, the eyebrows will become darker on the second day due to pigment adaptation and color mixing with the lymph secreted during the night. During this period, the lymph is usually no longer perspired, but if this occurs, it must clean in the same way as before.

The care should follow the master’s recommendations. If he has indicated that respect is unnecessary, you should not “self-medicate” by applying self-selected products to the skin. However, if the master has prescribed a specific healing ointment, it should not use more often than 3-4 times a day. The ointment should be applied in a very thin layer for 2 hours and then gently wiped off with a wet cotton swab. During this period, try not to wet the skin, use hot water or steam the area. Therefore, lying in the bathtub, going to the sauna or swimming pool is prohibited. It is also strictly forbidden to use decorative cosmetics on eyebrows and perform any cosmetic procedures.

 

Master explain the after care requirements

Within a week

Crusts begin to appear on the third day. It’s difficult to say precisely the condition. The body’s reaction is essential and the quality of the previous two days’ care of the dermis. It can be thick (infrequent), but the crusts protrude with a slight peeling, especially done with powder eyebrows. In any case, whatever the crusts may be, you should not try to tear them off, speeding up the process of their departure. The 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 skin healing, which is a proper and standard process. The area can’t get scratched, but you can relieve the irritation by pressing your fingers near the tattoo if the itching is severe. You can also use a cotton swab, pressing lightly along the brow (above it).

Washing with water is not allowed. You can clean your face with micellar water. During this stage, the skin in the cosmetic tattoo area might feel dry and tight. If the crusts are rough, they can be softened and moisturized with ordinary petroleum jelly. You can get it in every Chemist warehouse.

Moisturized skin is the fastest way to get rid of tough crusts. There’s nothing to be done if they’re thin, like a film. Such flaking indicates that the care is correct and that the effect of the permanent make-up will be as close to perfect as possible.

During the second week

At the end of the first week, the crusts will gradually come off. It would be best if you didn’t still touch, though it can damage the skin and cause pigment extracting.

The amount of sediment and the pigment shade is individual, but the shade can change. After the crusts have entirely disappeared, the pigment shade will become lighter. It will darken slightly again in a short time (a day or two).

Once the crusts are entirely gone, don’t use petroleum jelly or moisturizers anymore. Skincare is finished. You might allow to apply some good quality cream on the tattooing zone and ask your artist about it. The cream is better to use in the morning or evening before bed. Don’t forget about the amount of cream – any skincare product should apply in a thin layer.

Within a month

After two weeks, the skin heals but repairs the skin, settling pigment, and determining the final result continues. During this period, it’s still forbidden to steam the skin and use decorative cosmetics. Therefore, strictly prohibited in the eyebrows area scrubbing, peeling, or any cosmetic procedure involving skin exfoliation.

The recommendation doesn’t expose your skin to direct sunlight. If you plan to stay outside for a long time, you might be required to apply sunscreen and cover your eyebrows with a hat or glasses. During wintertime, try to cover it with a hood.

During the 28 days, while the skin is regenerating, the final result of the permanent is determined. It may be perfect or slight imperfections in gaps or irregularities may appear. The shade of the eyebrows may become lighter or even go out.

After 28 days, correction is possible. It removes all imperfections, fills the eyebrows with colour, and prolongs the effect. The price of the sentence in our studio is 50% of the cost of the chosen procedure.

Don't do it after the microblading.

It’s prohibited to use sauna and solarium during the skin regeneration and recovery period. Don’t visit Swimming pools until the skin has completely healed, as chlorinated water may cause damage to the traumatized dermis.

Drinking alcohol is not recommended for the first four days, as it suppresses the immune system and increases the likelihood of catching the virus. During the week, only moderate exercise should use to avoid getting a sweat on the eyebrows that have not healed. Also, to prevent sweating, avoid staying in hot rooms for long periods.

The results of microblading can last anywhere from 12 to 24 months, depending on your skin type and how well you care for the area after your appointment. To ensure that your microblading lasts as long as possible, it is important to follow a few key tips.

All prohibitions lift as soon as the crusts are gone.

Correction is mandatory in cosmetic tattooing, especially for microblading eyebrows . Here we will only point out that it’s better to have it done, as it will prolong the effect and give the eyebrows a beautiful saturation of color.

Skincare after touchup

Skincare after the correction has to Separate attention. Since discipline is similar to the first main procedure, the skin is re-traumatized. It requires identical care as after the first session.

The only difference in care is that the eyebrows are finished in sections during the correction. Consequently, the skin heals faster. Therefore not all of the tattooed area is traumatized. Nevertheless, care is needed and should be taken as seriously as before.

Area Take care after microblading

Microblading has more complicated skin treatment than all existing cosmetic tattooing techniques. The process is performed by incising the skin in hair shape and filling the incision with pigment. Because of it, the area of injury is more extensive, and the skin takes longer to heal. Also, note that the lymph secret may not release for one day, as after powder eyebrows, but for two or more days. It needs to remove all the time. Otherwise, the care is no different from the one we’ve given above.

Once again, let us remind you that the crusts shouldn’t peel off. Try to get rid of them by any means, including camouflaging them with cosmetics. The maximum you can moisturize them with a cream recommended by your masters or with petroleum jelly.

Post-powder eyebrow care

Post powder tattoo procedure care

If microblading is the most traumatic technique, powder eyebrows are not traumatic. Achieving by spot applying the pigment causes minimal damage to the skin. Therefore, the skin heals quickly and without any problems. During the first day, slight lymphatic discharge can occur, which must clean with a chlorhexidine cotton pad.

In contrast to other techniques, the crusts after the powdered eyebrow procedure look very lightly peeled. The skin should be allowed to de-squeeze on its own. However, it should not be attempted to remove it either.

Often after the powdered eyebrow, permanent eyeliner treatment or any other CT an artist recommends not using any skincare products. Take his advice.

FAQ

Depending on the chosen technique and the body’s reaction, the speed of healing of the skin. Often masters recommend not taking care of the skin, as they see that the skin will heal quickly without problems. But even in such cases, one should follow the rules of hygiene: do not touch the area with dirty hands, avoid mechanical influences, etc. Failure to do so increases the risk of skin infection.

Primary care removes lymphatic secrets on the first and the second day after the procedure. Lymph is the body’s defence mechanism after an injury to the skin, and the pigment comes out with it. The lymph should terminate with a cotton swab dipped in chlorhexidine. If it’s not, rough crusts form on the eyebrows.

When the skin has not yet healed, a model should give the skin immediate attention in the first two days, and lymphatic fluid is released. During the rest of the period, care is relative – no action needs to take. The only recommendations are to avoid bathing and swimming pools, avoid excessive sweating and protect the tattooed area with sunblock in prolonged sun exposure.

Skincare after correction is a must. It is similar to the standard one – removing the lymphatic fluid with chlorhexidine and a cotton swab. The difference between post-correction care and care after the primary treatment is that the skin is re-traumatized after correction, but partially. Therefore, the healing process is quicker. However, it will take 28 days to heal, just like after the primary treatment.
