AFTERCARE FOR MICROBLADING &
FAUX FRECKLES

AFTERCARE FOR MICROBLADING

1. Keep your new cosmetic tattoo clean!

Wash with the cleanser I provide or Cetaphil. Gently wash the brows for the first 1 to 3 days morning and night. You want to wash away any possible dried lymph from the initial appointment and any bacteria in general, pat dry, do not rub. When you reach the flaking stage you can wash around the brow area to keep them clean so they don't become overly dry.

2. Do not submerge your brows into any water.

Keeping them clean is vital, washing and drying them is necessary, but you do not want to get them waterlogged. Introducing them to unclean water such as oceans, pools, hot tubs or lakes can cause infection.

3. Keep sweating to a minimum for 10 to 14 days.

Cosmetic tattoo removal is done with saline (salt water) and that's exactly what your body is producing while you're getting your workout game on. This can naturally cause the tattoo to heal way too light. Some light working out is alright as long as you continually pat the area dry, but be sure to not excessively workout until the flaking stage is complete. You'll have better healed results.

4. Wait at least two days to wash your hair in the shower.

Allow a minimum of 48 hours to let the fresh tattoo (which is essentially an open wound) to settle and stabilize in the skin. You need to use the ointment provided to keep all of the soap and water out of the brows. Use the size of a grain of rice for each side. When you're done showering gently remove any excess ointment off of the tattoo.

Points to make (1 through 5)

1. The first two weeks are a fairly delicate time for the brows healing period and the most prone to infection. Keep makeup off of the tattoo and around it. The makeup can cause irritation and the makeup brush can hold bacteria in the bristles. You don't want that on your fresh tattoo.

2. Immediately after your microblading appointment the brows will be at a medium level of darkness. After a couple days they will become even darker since there are tiny scabs on the hair strokes created in the skin. DON'T FREAK OUT. This is 100% normal and expected.

3. After any minor scabbing and the flaking period is complete the microblading will appear very soft and light. DON'T FREAK OUT. NO, YOUR BROWS ARE NOT FALLING OFF. Again, this is normal. The skin is regenerating cells which creates a "milky" layer over the hair strokes. Skin is bananas cool!


4. Now we wait for the pigment to completely settle into the dermis and this will take 3 to 4 weeks. Once this is over the true color of the pigment will be present.


5. During weeks 3 and 4 the tattoo is no longer an open wound and wearing makeup and going into water is okay. Remember the pigment is settling in and may be light still.

What to Avoid

Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for the first 14 days. Once healed remember to apply facial sunscreen, always. This will protect the tattooed area and leave it vibrant for as long as possible until your next appointment.

Do not apply makeup to the tattooed area for the first 2 weeks. Chemicals of any kind may interfere with the healing process which will compromise the color of your tattoo.

AFTERCARE FOR FAUX FRECKLES

You need to keep your face dry for 24 hours. After the 24 hours is up make sure to use a mild facial cleanser such as Cetephil and a mild facial moisturizer also Cetephil or CereVe that is scent free so it doesn't irritate the skin. Do not exfoliate the area because the freckles need to shed their little flakes naturally, doing so may pull out any unhealed pigment causing premature pigment loss. If you decide you want the freckles to appear softer you may very gently and lightly exfoliate the area 7 to 10 days after your freckle appointment.

What to Avoid

Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning without sun block or a hat, the sun causes the pigment to fade quicker. Try to avoid facial cleansers with retinol, AHA and BHA to help maintain the richness of your freckle pigment. They can strip away the pigment over time since they are designed to be exfoliants.

What about the placement of freckles?

Freckles are naturally prominent on any high points of the face such as the nose, forehead and cheekbones. That isnt the only place freckles can be tattooed though. If there some randomly dusted on the lower cheeks, chin, upper lip and temples it will appear more natural, and honestly quite dainty and cutesy. The client may have as many or as few as they wish.

Attention my full face makeup lovers!

If you're someone who loves to wear full face makeup, you cannot wear any until your freckles have healed. this may take anywhere from three days to two weeks. The fresh freckles will lighten up over the course of two months leaving soft natural results.

One last note to anyone with a iron deficiency.

If you happen to be iron deficient your body will metabolize the pigment at a faster rate and the freckles may need to be touched up sooner.
