Updated: Jan 23

Welcome to Aileen N Beauty, where your quest for gorgeous, flawlessly shaped brows begins. Congratulations on choosing to improve your natural beauty with our skilled microblading technique! To get the best healing and long-term benefits, you must adhere to a careful aftercare practice. In this detailed guide, let's walk you through the dos and don'ts of aftercare for microblading, including necessary measures and precautions for a complete recovery.

Keep the Area Clean:

To maintain clean brows, use a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser and water twice daily. Using a cotton pad or swab, remove any remaining lymph fluid or ointment.


Apply the Recommended Ointment:

Follow your technician's recommendations and use the suggested ointment to promote recovery. Applying a small layer after washing keeps the region hydrated and promotes normal healing.


Avoid Water Exposure:

Avoid excessive water exposure in the first several days after microblading. While washing is crucial, it is critical to avoid drowning your brows in water, whether from swimming or frequent showering.


Be Mindful of Physical Activities:

Avoid vigorous physical activity that might produce perspiration. Sweating might interfere with the healing process, so it's recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for the first week.


Protect from Sun Exposure:

Shield your microbladed brows from direct sunshine. If you must be in the sun, use a wide-brimmed hat or sunglasses to avoid UV radiation, which can erase the pigmentation.


Stay Hydrated:

Drink enough water to maintain good skin health. Hydration promotes the body's natural healing processes and ensures that your skin heals quickly.


Be patient: 

Recognize that healing processes differ from individual to person. Be patient and resist the urge to pick or scratch the treated area, as this can interrupt the healing process and damage the outcome.


Use a Healing Balm:

Add a healing balm advised by your technician to your aftercare routine. These balms are designed to soothe the skin, minimize inflammation, and encourage maximum recovery.


Sleep on Your Back:

To avoid touching or contact with your pillow, sleep on your back during the early healing time. This reduces friction and encourages uninterrupted healing.


Attend Your Follow-Up Appointment:

Attend the planned follow-up visit with your microblading professional. This allows them to evaluate the healing process, resolve any issues, and do any required touch-ups to achieve the greatest outcomes.



Avoid Touching:

Avoid touching your eyebrows with filthy hands. Touching the region might spread bacteria and cause infections, endangering the healing process.


Say No to Makeup:

Avoid applying makeup to the treated area for at least a week. Makeup can add pollutants and impede the natural healing of your newly microbladed brows.


Skip Saunas and Steam Rooms:

Avoid saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs during your early recovery phase. Excessive heat and steam might produce perspiration, which is detrimental to the healing process.


Say 'No' to Picking or Peeling:

Avoid picking, peeling, or scratching your brows, especially if they itch. This can interfere with the pigment's settling and provide inconsistent effects.


Avoid Excessive Sunbathing: 

While sun protection is important, avoid excessive sunbathing, especially during the first healing period. UV radiation might affect the pigment's color retention.


Don't rush the healing process: 

Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that will change your brows over time. Avoid seeking immediate touch-ups or making final decisions during the first several weeks of recuperation.


Refrain from Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion:

Avoid chemical peels and microdermabrasion around the brow area to ensure proper healing and duration of microblading results.


Skip Hot Tubs and Swimming Pools:

Avoid extended water exposure, such as hot tubs or swimming pools, during the first healing phase. Chlorine and other chemicals can irritate the treated region.


Say 'No' to Excessive Exfoliation:

Avoid excessive exfoliation on your brows. Excessive exfoliation might hasten pigment fading and jeopardize intended outcomes.


As you recover from your microblading surgery, it's critical to stay cautious and sensitive to your brows' demands. Microblading is an art that takes time to fully unveil its perfection. Your brows will develop over the next few weeks as the pigment settles, and your skin heals completely. Be patient, resist the temptation to analyze too quickly, and believe that the result will be well worth the wait. It is perfectly natural to suffer itching during the healing process. However, do not scratch or rub the treated area. To relieve discomfort, gently tap or push on the itching area. If the itching persists, your technician may recommend using a recommended anti-itch lotion.


As your brows recover, try making temporary lifestyle changes. For example, if you're a frequent gym-goer, choose lighter workouts during the early healing phase to reduce perspiration. Similarly, avoid activities that may expose your brows to possible irritants or extended water contact.
