Microblading Aftercare Tips
Once you had your microblading or permanent makeup procedure done, there are a few things you should know to make sure your brows heal right and you get the best possible results. Here are some aftercare tips for you:
How To Clean Your Face
The most important thing is to keep your brows clean and dry. Do not get them wet. Wash your face carefully around the brows without getting water on the treated area. If you feel you have some dust on your brows, wipe them gently with an alcohol wipe. Before cleaning your face, make sure to wash your hands with a disinfectant soap. Apply the post-care cream or oil before washing your face. When applying your post-care cream, do not use your fingers, use cotton swabs gently. Do not wash your face with alkaline soaps for at least five to seven days. Do not wipe your face with a towels for 15- 21 days. In general, do not rub your brows, or pick on them, as you could get an infection. Your brows will probably start peeling in the second phase of your recovery, still do not peel or pick the skin. Also, try to keep your hair away from your brows for at least 7 days. Furthermore, you won’t be able to wear makeup or anti-aging creams on your brows for at least ten days.
Activities To Avoid
For at least two weeks after your procedure, avoid any activities that will make you sweat, including sports, hot saunas or hot tubs. You also won’t be able to go swimming in a swimming pool. The chlorine in the water can change the tone of the color pigments. Sun bathing (or going to a tanning salon) should be avoided for at least two weeks after the procedure.
You won’t be able to have any laser, chemical treatments or peelings done. Furthermore, do not use creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic Acid on your face or neck. Heavy household cleaning, working in your garage, or basement, or other areas where you could come in contact with a lot of airborne debris must be avoided in order to prevent infections.
Foods & Alcohol
Stay away from spicy foods, do not smoke and don’t drink alcohol in excess. Drinking alcohol could actually slow down the healing process.
