Following after care instruction is very crucial to the success of your microbladed eyebrows. Do not let any water touch your eyebrows for the period of time specified in these instructions.  (quick rinse 30 minutes to an hour after the procedure is okay and is recommended ). Do not let any lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure.

Immediately after, the area will be EXTREMELY dark and will get darker over the next 2 days as a scab forms in the area. 30-50% of your pigment will be in the scab. Over the next 7-14 days your scabs should flake off bit by bit. Some people scab very lightly and will look light and flaking is minimal, however others can develop a thick & darker scabbing. " this is normal as we are not all the same.

Everybody is different, but whatever you do, DO NOT PICK THE SCABS! Make sure you read through and follow AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS properly to obtain the best results.

If the scabbing phase is not over by 14 days, please continue your Aftercare instructions until scabs are completely gone.

After the scabbing phase is over, you will see that the color of your pigment appears foggy and muted in color because a layer of skin has grown over the pigment to seal it in. Not to worry, over the next several weeks your skin will regenerate and the pigment will be more vibrant in color. The complete healing process takes at least 6 weeks which is when the true orientation of the pigment will show.

For most people, there shouldn’t be too much of a problem going to work or being out in public, as long as you’re good at following aftercare instructions. However, some people may develop thicker scabs and have minor swelling. You may take an Advil or apply an icepack after your treatment to reduce swelling and discomfort.

  • 30 minutes after the treatment, RINSE the eyebrows with neutral soap (children’s) or cold water. Remove all the lymph that may appear on the eyebrows. After that apply a very thin layer of PhiShield (after care cream).

  • Repeat this procedure 3-5 times during the day. If the treatment was done late in the afternoon and you do not have time to do it 3 to 5 times, put a plastic foil over the eyebrows you previously applied the cream on, so that you protect the eyebrows from dry ing and wiping overnight.

  • In the next 7 days, maintain facial hygiene and apply the cream after washing your face or having a shower. PhiShied (after care cream) can be used on all skin types, due to its natural active components that regulate oiling.

Day of treatment: Day 1-3:

After the procedure, you will be sent home with a liquid bandage one the treated area. Do not remove this protective film. The liquid bandage and will appear clear with no shine so it will not be noticeable, you will keep this bandage on for 3 days with no washing touching or getting wet until the 4th day when you will start your after care that is been provided at time of appointment. 

Days 3: Wash

Wash with the supplied antibacterial soap to remove bacteria build up, Liquid bandage, oils and dead skin. (Don't worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT). Pat the area dry with the supplied 4X4 non woven gauze and wait 5 minutes to assure the brow area is dry and apply a small amount of the supplied moisturizer.


   :NOTE: Gently wash your Microbladed or cosmetic tattooed area each morning and night with water and supplied antibacterial soap. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a light smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with tepid water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with supplied 4X4 non woven gauze and wait 5 minutes to assure the brow area is dry . DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants!. Only antibacterial soap!

Days 3-18 Moisturize
Apply a small amount of the supplied oder free/dye free lotion with clean fingers or a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area allowing to absorb. 

 

 

TATTOO EYEBROWS HEALING PROCESS

The healing process is a fascinating and important aspect of your permanent makeup procedure. It differs from person to person and is based on several factors. Here we will explain those factors, and show you what to expect during all the stages of the tattoo eyebrows healing process to help you recover as quickly and successfully as possible.

 

HEALING FACTORS

A tattoo is effectively a skin deep flesh wound, and it will heal in much the same way. There are several physiological factors that help determine the average speed, healing time, and effectiveness of the healing process. They include:

  • Age – Generally, as with any type of skin trauma, older looser skin tends to take a bit longer than younger skin to heal and regenerate.

  • Skin Type – Scarring affects different skin types differently based on collagen production. Darker skin, for example is susceptible to raised keloid scars, while lighter skin may have a more sunken pitted appearance.

  • Circulation – Good circulation facilitates healthy fresh blood flow through the wounded area, and cuts down considerably on healing time.  

  • Estrogen Levels – Estrogen affects wound healing by regulating a variety of genes associated with regeneration.

 

  • How Easily Or Severely You Swell And/Or Bruise– Although permanent eyebrows are least affected by swelling and bruising, some individuals are extremely prone which can extend the amount of time it takes to heal.

  • Diet – Studies suggest that good nutrition and “power” foods ( that contain proteins, vitamins A, C, and Zinc) promote healing.  

  • Stress – Stress results in the deregulation of the immune system, which is proven to cause a substantial delay in wound healing. 

  • Diabetes – Diabetic individuals show a documented impairment in the healing of acute wounds.

  • Smoking– Smoking causes a delay in wound healing and an increase in complications such as infection, rupture, leakage, and sometimes even necrosis. 

  • Excessive Physical Activity – Excessive exercise or activity could cause an increased risk of abrasion,  and the sensitive areas to stretch making scabbing difficult. 

  • Exposure To Sunlight – Excessive sun exposure can cause reddening, blistering, and inflammation potentially causing infection and scarring to the already sensitive area.

  • Medications – Some medications may interfere with response to inflammation, platelet function, and an ability to form clots, significantly affecting healing. 

HEALING PROCESS STAGE 1:

FIRST TWO WEEKS

Immediately after your eyebrow tattoo procedure, the healing process begins. You may initially experience swelling, redness, skin sensitivity, and possibly some minor bruising.  All are normal side effects when deciding to tattoo eyebrows, but none of them should last longer than two (2) days.  A good over the counter pain reliever should help. The good news is, that unlike other cosmetic tattoo enhancements (like eyeliner and lips), tattoo eyebrows are least affected by swelling and bruising. When you leave the studio,  your brows are clean and protected. We only use disposable sterile instruments and PPE for your's and our protection. The studio is a sterile environment. Remember, once you leave the studio you are seseptible to infection, please use caution with your daily activities for the next few days. If swelling or bruising persists more than a day or two following your procedure, it may be a sign of infection, so be sure to contact your PCP and/or doctor immediately.

The appearance of your new permanent eyebrows will be darker and thicker than you might expect. Usually after about a week or so, the area and top layer starts to scab and “shed” off in sections.  The new exposed pigment will eventually soften and settle into an appropriate natural appearance. To help aid in the healing process of your new tattooed eyebrows during this period, apply a pea-sized (aftercare cream included in your aftercare packet) at night before going to bed.  This will help cut down on the possibility of infection. Also, be careful to limit any excessive physical activity or exposure to direct sunlight, and be sure not to pick or scrub your tattoos as they heal.  This will cause scarring.  In total, this initial period should take approximately two (2) weeks for your tattooed eyebrows to fully heal and set.

HEALING PROCESS STAGE 2:

FIRST TWO WEEKS

During the next phase of the healing process, as eyebrow tattoo scabbing and shedding occurs, you may feel tempted to soothe your eyebrows with cold. You can use anything from a cold compress (NOT frozen), to damp tea bags, to face cloths (NOT wet). Just be sure to only add light pressure when placing them onto the eyebrows. It is also important that you be very careful not to rub, scratch, or scrub, the new eyebrow tattoo, because at this phase of the healing process, there is still the possibility that the semi-permanent ink could fall off. By far, the best overall healing component is oxygen. If its tolerable, it is highly recommended that you simply let your new tattoo eyebrows breathe. After approximately two (2) weeks, your eyebrows will have mostly healed during the “shedding” process. The initial “intensity” will have faded, and the desired color shade will start appearing.


 

HEALING PROCESS STAGE 2:

TOUCH UP PROCEDURE

About four (4) weeks – 6 (weeks) after your original eyebrow tattoo appointment, you should schedule a “touch up” with us. This should be at no extra charge and included in the original procedure. Your artist will go over the tattoo again to darken the pigment and fix and fill in any areas needing correction or modification. Additionally, after a few weeks, if your eyebrow color has settled into an undesirable tone, it can be adjusted at the perfecting visit.

Some people at times have a resistant skin type where the ink just won't implant. You may need more than one touch up, if you are one of the few that fall into this rare category. This is an exceptional circumstance that will require further perfecting sessions, Not to worry,  we here at Face & Body guarantee our work for 90 days following your 1 perfecting session.. If for any reason your pigment won't hold, we will accommodate further perfecting sessions at cost. 

 

  After a couple more weeks of repeated ointment application, the tattooed eyebrow healing process should be complete, and you shouldn’t have to schedule another appointment again for another 9-12 months, however in some rare cases, pigment can hold up to 24 months.

 

 

Important Reminders

 

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post procedure:

  • Increased sweating

  • Practicing sports

  • Swimming

  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning

  • Exposure to UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been 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 treatment area

  • 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 rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab



Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results with your microblading procedure.

Important note about showering:

Limit your showers to warm water so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
