To ensure that you achieve optimal results from the microblading procedure, please adhere to the following prep and aftercare instructions.
If you have ever hired a professional painter they will tell you that “it’s all in the prep”. Professional painters know that they get the best results when they spend extra time sanding, filling holes, making sure edges are smooth and applying the right primer. Well, permanent makeup is very similar. You will get much better results when you properly prep. It all starts with a good canvas! The procedure area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive and non-irritated. Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure.
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
The day of the procedure: Absorb
After the microblading procedure, gently blot the treated area with a clean tissue to absorb excess lymphatic fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.
Days 1-7: Wash
Wash daily to remove bacteria, buildup of product, and dead skin. (Don't worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)
Gently wash the treated area each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the affected area. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
Days 1-7: Moisturize
Apply a rice grain amount of ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results with your microblading procedure. Don’t forget your new favorite acronym: AWM - Absorb, Wash, and Moisturize!
Important note about showering:
Limit your showers to 5 minutes to avoid creating too much steam. Keep the treated area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. The treated area should only be getting wet at the very end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
