First 24 Hours of Caring for your Cosmetic Tattoo
In our experience, the best results are achieved by washing your eyebrows 5 times a day in the first 24hrs. The purpose of this is to get rid of the lymph fluid that causes excessive scabbing. Wash your brows every 4 hours using a mild soap like a baby soap, or the soap provided in your aftercare kit. You will first wash your hands to sanitize them and rid them of any dirt or bacteria. Rinse your hands, then apply more soap and using your ring fingers gently wash your microblading for 10 seconds. Afterwards you will use a folded paper towel to firmly press/blot your eyebrows. Using a q tip, apply a small layer of Tina Davies Aftercare Serum in the gold packet to each eyebrow. Toss and discard that q tip, using another q tip use a half rice grain amount of aftercare in the blue tube to each eyebrow. Do this each time you wash your eyebrows in the first 24 hrs.
After the first 24 hrs
You must avoid sweat, water, salt water, do not submerge head under water in the bathtub or in the shower. Avoid water in any form, including ice.
What to Expect in the First 6-8 weeks:
Intensified color and swelling are part of the initial stages of healing. Be patient. Do not freak out. The intensity should regress within 7 days. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal scabbing and/or flaking may take place. Your scabs should be completely gone by the 2nd week, during the process your microblading may appear blue or ashy. Dont worry this is completely normal! When your scabs fall off, your microblading may look like it disappeared, this too is completly normal! Don’t panic! Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process. The true vibrancy of your cosmetic tattoo is achieved between weeks 6 and 8, in the time leading up to then you’ll experience a slight loss in colour before it begins to regenerate as your skin naturally exfoliates.
The Healed Results
Caring for my New Eyebrows:
You made it! Celebrate by sleeping in a little longer each day and enjoy your newfound free time. To preserve your completely healed results; apply sunscreen regularly, hats and larger sunglasses are encouraged, and avoid over exposure to the sun. Chlorine, glycol acid, microdermabrasion, and other cosmetic products can lighten the pigment with repeated use. When getting any procedures, whether it be cosmetic or not, done to your face please let the individual performing the service know about your microbladed brows and continue at your own discretion. We are not responsible for any changes made to your brows in its reaction to any additional services you may receive.
