Ombre Powder Brow/ Blade and Shade Post Care

Day 1 & 2: Use only sterile water (bottled or distilled) to dampen a clean cotton pad or cotton swab, and wipe away any clear lymphatic fluid build up on your brows, multiple times each day. Please remember to wash and sanitize your hands before touching your brows. Cover your brows at night with tegaderm film.

Day 3 - 10: Apply a very thin layer of After Inked ointment to your brows twice daily for 7 days, with a clean cotton swab and not your bare fingertips. Use only the amount of a grain of rice for both brows, not to appear wet or greasy. Do not use aggressive movement/manipulation of the skin- be gentle. Make sure your hands are clean before touching your
brows. You may also wipe the area clean with a damp cotton pad (wet with sterile water only) to clean them, but only as needed.

*** Getting your brows overly wet or using too much ointment will cause your brows not to heal correctly and may result in loss of pigment.

*** ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUP ON OR AROUND YOUR BROWS UNTIL YOUR SCABS HAVE SHED. 

Microblading Post Care 

Day 1-2 (Day of treatment): Use only sterile water (bottled or distilled) to dampen a clean cotton pad or cotton swab, and wipe away any clear lymphatic fluid build up on your brows, multiple times each day. Please remember to wash and sanitize your hands before touching your brows. Cover your brows at night with tegaderm film.


Day 3 -7: Using a clean cotton swab,  apply a very small amount of After Inked to brows (very small amount, a grain of rice for both brows). This is just to add a small amount of moisture to brows and should not appear greasy, glossy or shiny, if they do, you have used too much. Do not use aggressive movement/manipulation of the skin- be gentle. Make sure your hands are clean before touching your
brows.


Day 8-14: Gently clean the brow area with a dampened cotton pad, you may use a drop or 2 of alcohol free witch hazel (added to the damp pad) to clean the brows 2-4 times a day. If your brows feel tight or dry, you may apply an extremely thin layer of Aquaphor after cleansing (brows should not be greasy, glossy, or shiny – if so, you used too much).

*** Getting your brows overly wet or using too much ointment will cause your brows not to heal correctly and may result in loss of pigment.

*** ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUP ON OR AROUND YOUR BROWS UNTIL YOUR SCABS HAVE SHED.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post permanent makeup procedure:

  • Increased sweating

  • Practicing sports

  • Swimming

  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning

  • UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment

  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris

  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds

  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab

Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.  During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.

Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-permanent makeup procedure.  However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Roxy Brows, LLC immediately, to discuss further instructions.

Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.

What to Expect During and After Your Microblading or Powder Brow Session

Entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.

The pigment will appear very dark immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear even darker the next day. This is only a phase!!! Please do not panic or do anything to your brows to try and lighten them, you will only damage your skin. There is nothing you or I can do about the inital darkness of the work other than simply wait, trust the healing process and allow your skin to scab.

Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period (scab peeling), brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, clients may lose original hairstrokes (or pigment in general) which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That’s is the reason why most customers need a touchup after 6 weeks.

Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.  The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure.

Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.

Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun.  Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. When using foundation, be aware when applying to avoid your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter.
