❌❌❌ ❌DON’T Be Scared if Brows are Darker at First
The tattooed area will appear slightly darker for a couple of weeks. Don’t worry, that’s part of the healing process”.
❌DON’T Rush the Healing Process
Speaking of, don’t rush the healing process, which can take four to six weeks. Some post-procedure swelling and redness may occur, but this usually goes away within 48 hours. As your brows heal, you may experience some dryness or minor scabbing.
Dont get your brows wet for two weeks
Do NOT touch them for 24 hours
Do NOT sweat or workout for 24 hours
Do NOT put ointment, lotions or make up on them for 48 hours
Do NOT stay in direct sinlight or go tanning bed for 3 weeks
Do NOT pick, itch or rub your brows
Do NOT have hair touching your brows (bangs)
Do NOT use benzoyl peroxide, salicyclic acid, or retinoids on your brows
Do NOT use sauna for 4 weeks
❌Don’t pick, scratch or scrub. This can cause scarring and mess with pigment. To ensure your brows look their best by your big day, we suggests booking an appointment six to eight weeks before your wedding day.
❌DON’T Be Unrealistic About the Results
❌Don’t forget microblading is a semi permanent make up and your skin and face shape are the variables. Even though the hair strokes look very realistic, your individual results will depend on your skin type, face shape and how your skin heals. “The dryer your skin, the sharper your brows heal. If your complexion is oily, the hair strokes will tend to blur more.” The phrase “sisters, not twins” is often used to describe brows. That’s because no one’s face is perfectly symmetrical. At the end of the day, microblading enhances your appearance, but it isn’t plastic surgery.
❌DON’T Skip Your Follow-Up Appointment
Microblading is a two step process. Clients should come back four to six weeks after the initial treatment to fill any gaps and make any necessary color adjustments.
