It is important to keep the brow area as clean as possible to prevent the chance of infection and promote healthy healing.
Avoid getting the brow area wet. When taking a shower, try to keep water off your eyebrows as much as possible. Keep a dry washcloth handy to blot the area in case soapy water enters the pigmented area.
No using exfoliants or chemical peels on the brow area (retin-A, glycolic/alpha-hydroxy acids, exfoliating scrubs, etc.) until brows are completely healed.
No saunas, long steamy showers, hot tubs, or swimming.
No cleansers, creams, or makeup in or around the brow area.
Use a clean pillowcase and avoid sleeping on your face as much as possible; especially the first two nights.
Never pick, peel, or scratch the procedure area. Picking and scratching may cause scarring and/or removal of the pigment.
Minimize exposure to direct sunlight.
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, wax, or pluck the procedure area for at least 10 days.
Avoid dusty environments or any task where your eyebrow area could be exposed to excessive dust, dirt, or dander.
If you experience an allergic reaction or develop symptoms of an infection, you should contact your health care provider immediately.
Day 1 (day of the procedure): One hour after your procedure, gently blot the brow area with a lightly dampened clean paper towel/washcloth to absorb excess lymph fluid. Gently pat the area dry and add a small amount of balm (provided to you). Repeat every two hours. This is important to prevent hard scabs from forming too quickly.
Day 2: Apply balm in the morning, at noon, and before bed (if brows appear shiny after applying balm, you have used too much). Before applying balm, gently blot the brow area with a lightly dampened clean paper towel/washcloth
Days 3 - 5: Leave brows alone. Allow them to dry heal (no balm, no water).
Days 6 - 10: Apply a thin layer of balm to the procedure area each morning until all scabs are healed. Before applying balm, gently blot the brow area with a lightly dampened clean paper towel/washcloth. Apply balm only once per day.
What to expect during the healing process:
Days 1 - 4: Brows may be tender and surrounding skin may feel tight. Brows will get progressively darker until day 4 as scabs heal over the procedure area (earlier for some people, later for others). DO NOT PANIC. Your brows will not stay this dark. The scabs are forming over the new pigment which makes the new brow appear extra dark.
Days 5 - 12: The scabs within the procedure area will begin to flake during this period, which will look like dandruff flakes and dry skin. The brows will itch but it is ESPECIALLY important that you do not pick, peel, scratch, or touch. Once you reach this stage, new skin is forming over the pigmented area, making the pigment appear lighter than you were expecting. Again, this is completely normal and no cause for alarm.
Days 13 - 21: The pigment will resurface as the forming skin completely heals and the brows will reach their final appearance. Final appearance will be darker than what was experienced during days 5-12
6 - 8 weeks after a PowderBrow or Mircoblading Procedure, a touch up session is recommended to fill in any gaps in pigment or darken any areas that lightened too much during the healing process.
To retain the color of your new brows, you should always apply SPF to the area when exposed to the sun. Direct sunlight can cause pigment to fade prematurely.
Avoid the use of exfoliants or chemical peels on the brow area (retin-A, glycolic/alpha-hydroxy acids, exfoliating scrubs, etc.).
If you follow these instructions carefully you should expect to see beautiful, polished results that you will love for the next 1 to 3 years!
