What to do After your Microblading Procedure
60 minutes after your treatment: Absorb
Gently blot the eyebrow area with the provided “PhiWipe” to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 60 minutes for a minimum of 5 hours or until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph, and thus, scab formation. Apply provided “Skin Candy” ointment (thinnest possible layer) after final blot of brow area.
Days 1: Clean
The morning and night following the procedure, gently clean your brows with a clean tissue that’s been slightly dampened with bottled water. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products at all (especially any products containing acids such as glycolic, lactic, or AHA) or any exfoliants in or near the brow area.
Days 1-7: Moisturize (if needed for dry skin types)
Apply a very, very thin amount (half the size of a grain of rice for both brows) of “Skin Candy” ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area twice daily after cleansing brows for 7 days. Be sure to not over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Tip: Do not toss Skin Candy – keep it for your touch up appointment!
Things to avoid:
Do not apply any facial products (serums, moisturizers, SPF, etc.) and make up to brows until all scabs have naturally fallen off (usually around day 14)
Resist the urge to scratch or pick your brows!!
Now that you know what to do and what not to do, it’s time to share a secret recipe for amazing microblading results! I hope this acronym will help you out.

MICROBLADING PRE CARE
What to do Before your Microblading Appointment
The right pre care and after care can truly make a significant difference in results. In order to help you get the best results possible from your microblading procedure, please read below.
If you’ve ever hired a professional painter, they will tell you that “it’s all in the prep”. Professional painters know that they get the best results when they spend extra time sanding, filling holes, making sure edges are smooth and applying the right primer. Well, permanent makeup is very similar. You will get much better results when you properly prep. It all starts with a good canvas. The procedure area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive and non-irritated. Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure.
- Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis 1 week before the procedure
- Do not tan 1 week prior or have sunburned face/skin
- Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to treatment
- Do not work out the day of the procedure
- Do not have botox or fillers in the brow area 4 weeks prior
- Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E 48 hours prior (natural blood thinners)
- Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 1 week before the procedure
IMPORTANT –> In order to avoid excessive bleeding (which can result in poor pigment retention) –>
- Do not drink alcohol 48 hours before your procedure
- Do not consume coffee or any caffeine 48 hours before your procedure (this includes decaffeinated coffee)
- Do not take any NSAIDs, such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or Naproxen for pain relief (as these thin the blood) 48 hours prior to your procedure
- Do not take any fish oils, multivitamins, or omega 3 supplements 48 hours prior to your procedure
- Avoid blood thinners 48 hours prior to microblading BUT always consult with your doctor to prior to stopping any prescription medications
