Let's talk healing .This seems to be something that really freaks people out....Microblading is VERY different from a tattoo, both processes include putting ink under the skin. Microblading pigment is plant based, tattoo pigment is metal base. Tattoo ink is implanted 3 layers deeper than PMU pigment which is implanted at only the depth of a dime ( max, depending on skin type) When healing begins, ink starts to oxidize according to color base...warm base ( orange/ red ) will oxidize with a red or orange tint. Cool base ( blue/ green ) will oxidize black or a very dark brown. This is not your healed color, healed color is the result of the color bases once mixed with your undertone. Cool undertone requires a warm pigment base. Warm undertone requires a cool color base. Your true color can be seen around around week 3 after your brows play a disappearing act between days 8 and 10. You should retain around 70% of the color implanted at 1st session ( if you follow the rules, no sun, no sweat, no water, no picking annnnnd BLOT ) your brows are complete AFTER touch up. Microblading is not a one time " hit it and quit it process". During healing they will swell, shrink, change colors, disappear, reappear and require finishing touches. Read that last line again...its gonna be crazy. That's right...100% Crazy Train, BROWPOLAR, like a Schizophrenic party on your face! In the end...it will all be worth it...trust the process.
Please follow these instructions after the procedure to improve and prolong the results of your microblading. If you don’t follow these instructions, it can greatly affect your microblading results or put you at risk for infection or scarring or loss of pigmentation!
Use only items provided in aftercare kit.
Avoid getting anything on the brows, including water, except for cleansing as directed. For the first 2 days after your procedure, please gently blot your brows every hour using wipes provided to remove any excess lymph fluids. You can set an alarm on your phone to help remind you. This is very important to minimize scabbing and allow for better pigment retention!
Cleansing: Starting tonight wash lightly with slightly damp Q-tips and cetaphil soap. Repeat this washing, very gently every morning and night for the next 3 days. When washing, it should be very gentle and with hardly any water and with a tapping motion, no rubbing. Please avoid saturating brows with water. On day 7 through 14 you may very sparingly apply a super thin application of aftercare balm (which I will provide), using a clean Q-tip – morning and night. This will hydrate your brow area for dryness relief. Do not pick or rub the brows. The scabs/flakes must fall off on their own or you will risk removing the color and possibly scarring.
• Do not soak the treated area in the bath, pool or hot tub. For 30 days, refrain from swimming in salt water or chlorinated pools, saunas, hot yoga, steam rooms or sun beds.
• No exercise for 14 days. After 14 days – when exercising, wear a sweatband to avoid sweat on brow area.
• Do not expose treated area to direct sunlight. After healed (30 days), use a sunscreen to avoid fading from the sun.
• No makeup should be applied directly on the brows during the healing process. After the brows have healed (14 days, OR after the scab/skin flakes off) you may wear brow makeup at that time.
• No other products should touch the brows during healing, other than the cetaphil soap and the after care balm. No petroleum based products on the brows at any time during healing, this will cause pigment to migrate. Nothing should be put on the brows that I have not provided to you.
• Do not touch, rub, pick or scratch your brows following treatment or during healing process.
• You may find that your eyebrows will scab or become slightly dry following the treatment. If they itch, DO NO SCRATCH them. You may tap them to alleviate the itch.
• If your eyebrows get wet during the healing process, pat them dry with a towel, DO NOT RUB.
• Avoid using daily skincare products directly on the eyebrows.
• If you are planning a chemical peel, or any other medical procedure, please inform therapist of the procedure you have had. Procedure should only be done once the healing process is complete.• If you are due to give blood after the procedure, please inform your nurse about the microblading treatment you have had as this might alter the results.

WHAT TO EXPECT Initially, your brows will appear more bold than usual. This is because we have enhanced the brows, deposited pigment in the skin and often times, made them appear fuller. Over the next few days after the procedure, your brows may darken during the healing process. This is normal and this is not the way they will remain. Around 7-14 days, you may notice some flaking/shedding of the skin near the brow area. Think of this is very small “scabs” falling off the skin now that the skin underneath has healed. When the skin flakes off, many times the microblading strokes appear very light or sometimes it seems that they have disappeared. THIS IS NORMAL! This is because there is still a thick layer of protective skin creating a veil over the pigment. Once you go through a skin cycle (4-6 weeks) the pigment will typically reappear but will be about 30-50% lighter than it was immediately after the procedure. You should expect to retain 50 to 70 percent of your color from today’s appt, more color will be applied at your touch up appt in 6 to 8 weeks. Remember, this is a 2 step process.
