Following after care instruction is very crucial to the success of your microbladed eyebrows. Do not let any water touch your eyebrows for a long period of time (quick rinse 30 minutes after the procedure is okay). 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 get darker over the next 2 days as a scab forms in the area. 30-50% of your pigment will be in the scabs. Over the next 7-14 days your scabs should flake off bit by bit. Some people scab in light flakes and some develop a thick scab.
Everybody is different, but whatever you do, do NOT pick at the scabs and make sure you read through and follow the 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.
