Aftercare

Day 1
(Day of treatment)

2-3 hours After treatment,
gently clean the area with a
very small amount of sterile
water on a cotton pad, just
barely damp, NOT wet. Do
this 2 times today to avoid
build-up of blood/lymph on
the area.

Day 2&3

Do not do anything to your brows

Day 4 – 14
Using a cotton
swab, you may apply a very
small amount of Aquaphor
or A&D ointment to brows
(very small amount-like half
the size of a grain of rice for
both brows.)

This is just to
add a small amount of
moisture – brows should not
appear greasy, glossy or
shiny, if they do, you used
too much.

Do not use
aggressive movement/
manipulation of the skin- be
gentle. Make sure your
hands are clean before
touching your brows.

DO
NOT PICK SCABS OFF
BROW.. they are healing
TRUST THE PROCESS
Avoided for 10 days postmicroshading procedure
Allowing any water to
touch the brows! No shower
stream over brows. Wash
face CAREFULLY with a
washcloth or cleansing
wipes, avoid brow area.

• Sweating
• Exercising
• Practicing sports
• Swimming
• Hot sauna, hot bath, or
Jacuzzi
• Sun tanning or salon
tanning
• 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 brow area.
You will cause scarring of
the area or removal of the
pigment if you pick or peel
scabs prematurely.
• Performing tasks related to
heavy household cleaning
such as garage or basement
cleaning where there is a lot
of airborne debris – now is
not the time!
• Touching of the eyebrow
area except for when rinsing
and applying the post-care
with a cotton swab
• Do not use any cleansers
or facial products of any
kind, over the brow area for
at least 10 days.
• Absolutely do not use any
ointments, antibiotic creams
or gels, or vitamin creams
over the brow area – it will
draw out the pigment.

*Before showering apply a
thick layer of ointment to
protect your eyebrows from
moisture. During the shower
keep your face away from
the shower head and
remove the ointment gently
after the shower.

lease NOTE: Itching and
flaking may appear during
the first seven days postmicrosh
ading rocedure.
However, experience has
shown that by following
these after-care
instructions, these
symptoms may quickly
disappear.
Touch-ups and/or correction
of the shape-design is
recommended only after
4-8 weeks.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR MICROSHADING SESSION
Your eyebrows will go
through several phases
during the healing cycle.

Days 1-4:
The pigment will
appear very sharp and dark.
This is because the pigment
is still sitting on top of your
skin, and has not yet settled
in completely. The color of
the pigment will soften
gradually.
Do not be
alarmed if you see some
pigment on the cotton swab,
as this is
excess pigment
and/or body fluid that is
naturally exiting your skin.

Days 5-7:
Once the healing
of the skin starts taking
place, it will look like
dandruff flakes or dry skin.
This might give you the
impression that the pigment
is fading too quickly,
however, this is just
superficial color and dry
skin being naturally removed
from your eyebrows.

Days 8-12:
Your brows may
look as though the pigment
has completely faded – do
not panic – take a deep
breath and trust the
process.

Days 14-28:
Your brows
may still look a little patchy
or uneven, but the pigment
will start to “reappear” as
the pigment settles and the
healing continues.
You may get your touch-up/
perfecting procedure done
at the 4-8 week point NO
SOONER to allow for
complete healing of the
brows.
