Looking After Your Brows

Microblading Aftercare Instructions

The first day

Proper care following your treatment is necessary to achieve the best results.

​Please remember that the colour is up to 50% darker immediately after the treatment.  It will start to become lighter after 4-7 days.  The true healed colour will not come through until approximately 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment.  During the healing process, the colour may seem to have disappeared as it is obscured by the healing layers of skin.  Under no circumstances should you have any further permanent cosmetics work undertaken during this 4-6 week period.


Daily aftercare routine

Follow this routine for at least 2 week following the treatment, or until it has healed.  

  • Always wash your hands before applying the balm provided to you as part of your aftercare.
  • We recommend you use a gentle facial cleanser to clean the face during the healing period. 
  • Keep hair away to prevent any infection.
  • Avoid getting the brows wet for the first 14 days. If the area gets wet, gently pat dry using clean lint-free tissue.  Do not rub. 
  • Apply the balm a minimum of twice daily after the first 7 dry days. You should do this using a clean micro brush or clean cotton bud for each application (this will prevent cross-contamination). 

Important ‘Do Nots’

During this period you also need to look after the treatment area in other ways:

  • Some itching is normal.  Do not pick, peel or scratch the treated area.  This may result in the colour healing unevenly and you could also risk scaring and infection.  Allow the wound to flake on its own.
  • Do not apply make-up until 72 hours after the treatment. 
  • Do not expose the healing skin to extreme heat, cold or moisture for two weeks following your treatment.  This can include direct sun, tanning beds, jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, hot water, skin creams or ointments other than what you have been instructed to use. 
  • Do not apply vaseline type ointments to the area for a week after the treatment.  After this time, ointments of this type can be applied and are recommended if you plan to use chlorinated pools and jacuzzis. 

You may experience the following for 2-5 days after the treatment:

  • Tenderness
  • Flaking
  • Dryness and itchiness in the treated area
  • Swelling and redness

If you are feeling less than 100% healthy, it may take longer for your treatment to heal and symptoms may appear more prominent.  


Long term care

Permanent cosmetics area a low maintenance treatment, not a no-maintenance treatment.

​In order to keep your permanent cosmetics in perfect condition it may be necessary to have a Colour Boost procedure every 12-18 months, though this will vary for each individual.  Please visit our Book Now page to book you Colour Boost appointment.  

To avoid pigment fade for as long as possible, avoid excessive exposure to the sun or UV rays and use a good sunscreen or moisturiser with an SPF of 15. 

Take care when using moisturisers and other skin products with contain glycolic or fruity acids.  These can fade permanent make-up.

If you are planning an MRI scan, chemical peel or any other similar procedures please inform your practitioner that you have had permanent cosmetics.

Please inform the National Blood Service if you have donated blood, as you may not be eligible to give blood for four months post-procedure.

If you are planning having anti-aging injectables or cosmetic surgery, remember these procedures can alter the shape of your eyebrows.

Laser hair removal can fade and change the shade of your lip and brow procedure, always advise the laser technician you are wearing permanent cosmetics and they can act accordingly. ​
