After Care

Brows

It is very important that you do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 14 days after your procedure.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post microblading & ombre/powder brow procedure:

  • Increased sweating
  • Practicing sports
  • Swimming
  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
  • Sun tanning or salon tanning
  • Excessive sun exposure is known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck
  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when dabbing brows with a damp paper towel and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab

Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the shower head or take a bath.

When sleeping we recommend laying on your back to avoid applying pressure on your brows and to keep them free of debris.

Itching and flaking may appear around days 5-8 post procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these aftercare instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear. Immediately after the scabbing period, color may appear very light, please rest assured that the color will darken again as the skin slowly regenerates and seals over the 4 week complete healing period.

Ointment Application (starting the next day after your appointment): After dabbing your skin with a damp paper towel then use a cotton swab to gently apply a rice grain size amount of the post-care ointment in a dabbing motion. This can be done once in the morning and at night. Please be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself.

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact us immediately, to discuss further instructions.

Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.


Lips:

All of the above and:

It is recommended that you secure a prescription for Valtrex (or similar) if you have a history of cold sore / fever blisters / herpes and to take the medication 3 days prior to your appointment and for 3 days following your appointment even if you haven't experienced a flare-up in recent years. This measure is meant to be proactive to avoid a flare-up.

Ice packs wrapped in clean cloth or paper towel and applied to the lips at least twice an hour for the first 4 hours post procedure is recommended to decrease swelling.

Do not allow any cleansers, toothpaste or mouth wash to touch your lips for 7 days.

Brushing your teeth will require you to coat your lips with the aftercare ointment and then the use of a small amount of toothpaste (approximately 7 days). Avoid mouthwash for 7 day

Avoid smoking of kind/substance sort for 5-7 days.

Do NOT take any aspirin or similar pain medications, as they can thin the blood and slow down the healing process. You may take Tylenol (acetaminophen).

Avoid direct contact with drinks by utilizing a straw to drink for the first 3 days post procedure.

Fruits, sandwiches and anything that requires you to take a bite out of something should be avoided during the first 3 days post procedure. Spicy foods should be avoided until lips are fully healed.

Do NOT use lipsticks, glosses or any cosmetics on your lips until fully healed.

Cleanse your lips using a cotton swab with water then apply A&D ointment on your lips several times a day for 7 days to keep lips from drying out using a cotton swab and dabbing motion. Do NOT rub ointment into your lips.

Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.
