AFTERCARE

Taking Care of Your New Brows

  • Days 1-2: One to two hours after the procedure, gently blot the area with a lightly dampened clean paper towel/washcloth to absorb excess lymph fluid. Gently pat and dry area and add a tiny amount of barrier cream provided to you. Do this 3-4 times for the first day. On day 2, apply barrier cream in the morning, at noon, and before bed (brows should not stay shiny, if so, you have used too much cream).

  • Days 3-5: Leave brows alone, allow them to dry heal (no makeup, creams, or water on or around the brow). Avoid water hitting them from the shower head.

  • Days 6-10: Start balm, 1 time per day. Apply a thin layer of balm in the morning until all scabs are healed (each person’s skin is different and takes a different amount of time to heal depending on skin type and health conditions).

  • No water, cleansers, creams, or makeup in or around the Microbladed/ PHI PowderBrow® area for at least 7 days.

  • The area of the Microbladed/ PHI PowderBrow® brow may feel tender for the first two days.

  • Use a clean pillowcase and avoid sleeping on your face as much as possible for the first week, especially the first two nights afterwards.

  • Do not pick, peel, or scratch the Microbladed/ PHI PowderBrow® area to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment.

  • Do not submerge the Microbladed/ PHI PowderBrow® area in water for at least 7 days. When taking a shower try to keep water off your eyebrows as much as possible and keep a dry washcloth outside of the shower to blot the area in case soapy water enters the pigmented area.

  • Avoid long, steamy showers and saunas for the first 10 days.

  • Do not swim in lakes, oceans, or pools for the first 10 days after the procedure.

  • Do not allow area to be exposed to direct sunlight for the first 10 days. After the first 10 days, it is recommended you apply SPF 30 to the pigmented areas. Sun can cause pigment to fade prematurely.

  • Avoid sweaty workouts for the first 7 days. Any perspiration within the first 7 days of the healing process could result in loss of pigment.

  • Do not tint, thread, or wax the procedure area for at least 10 days.

  • Avoid dusting or any task in which your eyebrow area could be subjected to dust, dander from pets or animal hair for the first 3 days.

 

What to expect

  • Over the next few weeks your eyebrows will go through a series of changes. Days 1-3 they may be tender, and may feel tight by the third day.

  • Brows will be very dark in the beginning and at their darkest during days 1-4. Do not panic during this time, the micro strokes are forming tiny scabs with pigment added. This makes the brows appear darker than they will appear once healed.

  • Days 4-9: the area will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This is part of the healing process and is important that you do not pick, peel, or touch. Once the skin is through this stage, the pigmented area may appear lighter than you were expecting, this is normal.

  • Days 9-12: The pigment may look light or milky due to a thin layer of healing tissue: this is completely normal.

  • Days 12-21: The pigment will resurface and brows are reaching completely healed result. Once the thin layer of skin heals, the strokes/pigment in the brows will appear darker.

  • A touch up session is recommended to fill in any gaps or darken any areas that lightened too much during the healing process.

 

Long-Term Care

  • To maintain the color and pigment of your new brows, you should always apply SPF to the area when exposed to the sun.

  • Avoid the use of exfoliants on the brow area (e.g. Retin-A, Glycolic/Alpha-Hydroxy Acids, chemical peels, exfoliating scrubs, etc.).

  • If you experience an allergic reaction or develop symptoms of an infection, you should contact your health care provider immediately.

  • If you follow these instructions carefully you should expect to see beautiful, polished results that you will love for the next 1-3 years!
