Microblading: Safety Tips & Aftercare
Microblading is a method that proceeds to work on the presence of your eyebrows. There are several things that you need to know when it comes to maintaining and taking care of your eyebrows after the procedure is over. Like any permanent or semi-permanent procedure, you will be a little sore and sensitive afterwards, which is completely normal. Be sure to avoid touching or wetting the area as much as possible for up to 10 days, no matter how tempting it may be.
When it comes to aftercare, it is a lot like taking care of a brand new tattoo but a bit more intensive. Right after the procedure, the pigment will be a lot darker than what it will look like after it's all healed up, so don't get scared. What you will want to do 2 hours after the procedure: dip a cotton swab in sterilized water and gently dab over the area. This will take off any leftover die that is on your eyebrows along with leaving the area sterile. It will take about 7 to 14 days for the skin to heal and for the pigment to fade to the chosen color.
Here are some steps that you should follow after your microblading service:
For up to 10 days avoid getting the area wet. Make sure to keep your face dry while you take a shower.
Don't wear makeup for at least a week
No matter how tempting it may be - DO NOT pick at any scabs or itch the area.
Avoid swimming, saunas, and excess sweating until the area is completely healed.
Try to keep your hair away from your eyebrows, so if you have long bangs be sure to clip them back or wear a headband. Headbands are trending so don't worry girl.
Apply any cream that your technician suggests.
This may seem like a process, but honestly it is so worth it. Once you get microblading you will never want to go back. The feeling of waking up in the morning with your eyebrows already done is such an amazing feeling.
