About microblading eyebrows aftercare
Are you considering a semi permanent eyebrow treatment, but are worried about the aftercare? Don’t be. Semi Permanent or otherwise known as Microblading eyebrows aftercare is straightforward and easy to fit into your daily routine.
Following any beauty treatment or procedure, it’s highly recommended that you follow the aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results. And semi permanent makeup eyebrows are no different.
What to expect immediately after the semi permanent eyebrow treatment
Firstly, the depth of colour of your eyebrows will be considerably darker than you may expect, but don’t panic as this is completely normal. Over the following four to ten days it will begin to fade and may take up to four to six weeks for the true colour to come through. Also don’t be alarmed if the colour seems to disappear during the healing process, this is due to layers of skin forming and is only temporary.
After the procedure is complete you may experience a little discomfort around the eyebrow area which can be reduced by applying an ice pack. This will also help with any minor swelling that you may experience.
How to care for your microblading eyebrows immediately after treatment
Following your treatment (on the same day), you should also clean the area with a damp cotton wool pad every two hours. Then apply the cream provided. Remember to wash your hands before and after each application and to use a new cotton wool pad to avoid infection.
Ongoing microblading eyebrows aftercare
The day after your treatment and for the next four days, just apply the cream three times a day. Only apply a thin layer of cream to allow the skin to breathe.
Keep your hair away from your face in the first two days to avoid infection.
The treated area may experience the following symptoms for two to seven days after the treatment, which is completely normal:
• Dryness and itching
Don’t be tempted to remove any scabs by force that may form on the treated area as this may remove the pigment along with the crust.
Things you should avoid for 1-2 weeks:
• Soaps, facial cleansers, water on pigmented areas
• Washing pigmented area
• Chlorine pools
• Retin-A on pigmented areas
• Makeup on pigmented area for 5 days, including non-allergenic
• Hot, steamy, long showers
• Sun on pigmented areas
• Jacuzzis or saunas
• Terry towels on pigmented areas
Ideally you should avoid water for at least one week, but that isn’t always possible. So, shower with your back to the water to avoid water, shampoo and conditioner from getting into the pigmented areas. Make sure you wash your hair with your head tilted backwards to stop water running down you face. Cover the pigmented area with a sufficient amount of the cream provided. If the area does get wet, pat dry very gently with a clean towel or tissue.
How to care for your microblading eyebrows long term
Microblading eyebrows require very little maintenance. That’s one of the reasons you’re considering have them done, right? You’ll find they last between one to three years with just an annual touch up required to maintain their perfect shape and their depth of colour.
