5 Reasons Why Eyebrow Microblading Aftercare Is Essential.
As the popularity of eyebrow microblading continues to grow, so does the importance of proper aftercare. Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that involves natural-looking hair strokes onto the brows to give them more definition, fullness, and shape. The results can last anywhere from 12 to 24 months, depending on the individual's skin type and how well they take care of their brows afterwards.
While the initial microblading appointment only takes about 1-2 hours, the real key to getting the most out of your investment is in the aftercare. Proper aftercare starts with knowing what NOT to do in the days immediately following your appointment. In this blog post, we will give you 5 reasons why proper eyebrow microblading aftercare is essential and list some of the most common mistakes people make that can lead to premature fading or even infections.
This includes all skincare products, sunscreens, and makeup removers. Oil-based products will breakdown the pigment faster and can cause the brows to fade prematurely. Waterproof makeup is a no-go for at least 2 weeks because it contains ingredients that can irritate the skin and delay healing. If you absolutely must wear something on your brows, use a very light dusting of mineral powder or foundation that is oil-free. 2. Do not pick or scratch at your brows!
It may be tempting to do so if you have any itchiness or flakiness, but picking can lead to infection and scarring. Let any crusting that forms fall off naturally on its own. Excessive picking can also cause pigment loss. 3. Avoid hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, etc.
For at least 72 hours following your appointment as heat will open up your pores and cause sweating which can lead to irritation and infection. After 72 hours, make sure you gently wash your face with lukewarm water using a mild cleanser before steaming up any enclosed spaces again. 4. Stay out of direct sunlight as much as possible .
For 4 weeks following your appointment as UV rays can cause premature fading of the pigment. If you must go outside, make sure you apply a generous amount of sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) over your brows every 2 hours to protect them from sun damage. hats and umbrellas are also good Browsavers! ;) 5. Do not workout!
or perform any activities that will make you sweat excessively for at least 7 days following your appointment as sweating can lead to irritation and infection. When you do start sweating again, make sure you gently wash your face with lukewarm water using a mild cleanser as soon as possible afterwards before steaming up any enclosed spaces again (steam rooms, saunas, etc.). Conclusion: Proper eyebrow microblading aftercare is essential to getting the most out of your investment and avoiding common mistakes that can lead to premature fading or even infections. By following these simple tips, you will be well on your way to achieving long lasting beautiful brows!
