Before and After Microblading: What are the Rules?

Before Microblading:

To ensure good results and not put the client at risk, there are precautions that we must take.

Although microblading is a very safe process when done in a suitable environment by trained professionals, there are some rules that must be followed so that we can achieve the desired result with maximum comfort.

In this article we will talk about the attitudes that we must take before the procedure. Let's start:

Rules to follow before microblading procedure

The first thing is: do not carry out this type of treatment on skins that are making use of acid. That is why we ask the client to discontinue use a week before the session at least.

Hydration and oil control are also crucial factors to consider. For people with dry skin, it is recommended to receive a little more hydration, which can be done by significantly increasing water intake and using good quality moisturizers.

In turn, excess oil should be controlled with good skin hygiene and astringent products, which can be indicated by a specialist doctor.

Injuries, irritations and allergies cannot be active during the procedure. If a person suffers some type of trauma to the eyebrow, such as inflamed pimples, for example, we will not be able to go ahead with the microblading session until there is complete healing.

Finally, people with psoriasis can have microblading done, but only if the affected area is stable, without injuries or allergies exposed, and without causing discomfort to the client.

Preparing the skin before the procedure allows the blade and needle to enter the skin more accurately, providing a more beautiful and even result. In addition, the results are seen faster.

Post-procedure care

Care after microblading is divided by days. The client takes the instructions with him, but since this is a matter of immense relevance, I chose to put this information here as well.

During the first three days, the client should ideally avoid physical activities that generate wear and sweat. Therefore, the best option is not to exercise.

In the first week, you should:

  • Avoid touching the area where the procedure was done;

  • Do not use makeup in the eyebrow area. In turn, the products can be applied only if they are recommended by the professional responsible for your case;

  • Clean the area of the procedure with wet wipes, hypoallergenic, before bedtime. As we have already said, the application of the product should take place at the suggestion of the specialist;

  • Avoid positions during sleep that put pressure on the procedure area.

For the first two weeks, we ask the client to avoid putting their head under water and to avoid sun exposure, going to saunas or tanning, whether natural or artificial.

In turn, in the first 28 days, the ideal is that there is no exposure to the sun, use of products such as retinol or acids or even laser treatments.

What you need to know about the healing process

First, it is normal that during the first four days your eyebrows will become darker. Do not worry, it will get better soon.

During this time, we can get the impression that the strands are in high relief. Swelling in the eyebrow area is also not uncommon, as is some redness.

Some pigment may come off when you wash your face and apply products that aid healing. This should not be a cause for concern either.

Until the tenth day after the procedure, there may be a loss of color in the eyebrow area and the appearance of a slight peeling. Do not scratch.

About 28 days after your microblading procedure, you will be able to do a touch-up and thus correct the areas that you believe need more color and definition.

Whenever something bothers you, remember to talk to the professional responsible for your dermopigmentation. He can answer your questions and help you in this process.

Fortunately, most clients do not have an unpleasant post-procedure. In general, the care is simple and we manage to cope with them very well.
