Microblading, Combo Brows & Powder Brows Post-care

The Day of the Procedure
For the brows to heal properly and with the best final result, remember that the care after the procedure is just as important as the procedure itself.
 
It’s very important to follow your specialist post care recommendations. It is normal for the brows to be more intense right after the procedure and the pigmented area to be a bit red.
 
DAY 1
On the first day after the procedure the brows might seem dark and looking overdrawn. Don’t worry, this is only temporary.
 
DAY 1-3
Wipe your brows with dampened cotton pad (with distilled water or previously boiled and cooled water) thoroughly twice a day  with the hairs to remove the excess of lymph and prevent it from forming a thick scab. Your brows might be slightly itchy. You may also experience some feeling of pulling. Attention!!! Remember not to apply any cosmetics or makeup.
 
DAY 4-7
The brows start to peel at the end and at the beginning of the brows. The itching is a normal sign of the healing process. Don’t scratch the treated area to avoid removing the scabs.
Apply a thin layer of the provided ointment to cleaned eyebrows with a Q-tip. The fronts of the brows should be subtle and transparent, you shouldn’t see a well-highlighted border.
 
DAY 7-8
The scabs Shouldn’t be visible anymore.If you see any remains of it, just keep on applying post care ointment on that area. Don’t scratch it off. Remember it takes 2 weeks for eyebrows to heal.and 4 weeks to see final results from the day of the procedure.
Advice for All Skin Types
After treatment, you should not stay too long in the shower ( more than 15 min) in first 2 days. When our skin is too long under warm water, the pores will start to open and this can have an effect on the pigment retention. It can also happen that some skin types have lymph even on the second day. If you see this, you should take wet cotton pads and clean your eyebrows. Or wash them again only with water.

Pre & Post Care Instructions
If you suffer from cold sores, you must complete your antiviral medication to prevent an outbreak.
 
Immediately following the procedure lips may feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch.
 
Use a straw when drinking and avoid salty or spicy food if your lips feel tender for the first few days. Don’t touch, bite, scratch your lips- touching or scratching may cause irritation, infection and loss of pigment. Do not get toothpaste on your lips. It’s a good idea to brush your teeth with just water for 72 hours post procedure.Do not bleach your teeth until your lips are fully healed. Avoid exercise for at least 2-5 days after your treatment due to sweating.
It takes 5-10 days for the lips to heal after lip blushing procedure. Be aware that the colour will vary quite a lot during the healing process before reaching the final result.
Aftercare
Remember to place nothing on the treated area (except your aftercare product) until lips are healed. This means no makeup, creams, water(except for cleansing as detailed below)
 
After your procedure your skin will start to forming a protective scab. You may see fluidor ooze on the skin from lymph secretion. The fluid should be dabbed and blotted off with a sterile gauze pad or kleenex. It can crust the skin over and prevent it from breathing and healing.
 
After 24 hours, clean the treated area daily with mild warm water and non-alcohol soap. Apply soapy solution to a cotton pad and pad 4-5 times to clean. Theen blot completely dry with kleenex. Use patting motions only. No scrubbing, no rubbing, no wiping, no scratching.
 
Lips will ooze for a couple of days and peel for a week or so. After sleeping, the crust will have dried on the lips. Blot with water. Clean and apply aftercare product as directed. Try not to disturb the crust when cleaning and let it fall off by itself. Picking and pulling off skin that is not ready to come off will cause pigment loss and can pull out deeper tissue.

The edges or lip liner will be the last to fall off. Pulling this off will result in an uneven splotchy line or an indented scar.
 
Apply aftercare product on the clean and dry treated area. Place ointment on the scabs that are beginning to form. If you place ointment on the area and it is not dry, this may cause irritation or an infection and could lead to colour loss.
 
Keep your lips moist all the times with the aftercare product. After approximately 3 weeks after the procedure when no more scabs are present, discontinue the aftercare product. Begin to apply sunblock appropriate for lips to protect the pigment.

Day 3:
These lips have less swelling, a thicker texture, are orange, are sore, and have a hot feeling. They are pre-exfoliation.

Day 4:
Exfoliation begins with very chapped lips. The color will become lighter as the epidermis sloughs off. It will appear that lips have lost all of their color during this phase of healing; however, when lips have healed completely, the dermal layer will gradually become darker.

Day 5:
These lips are very chapped, but are nearly finished with the chapping phase of healing.

Day 6:
During this phase, a soft, rich color begins to appear in the lips.

Day 7-13:
During this phase, lip color disappears and the frosty second chapping phase begins as a whitish, gray haze on the lips.

Day 14:
Color blooms from within more and more each day until day 21 ( which is 3 weeks post-procedure).

Day 21:
Healing is complete. The lip color you see is the color that you have. Your lips will remain a bit dry for a month or two. Use a good lip balm, and they will return to normal with full color.
