If you’re planning on undergoing Microblading in Temecula, it’s a good idea to know something about what’s expected during the aftercare phase so you can be prepared. You probably won’t want to get your eyebrows microblade right before you go on a sunny cruise or run a marathon since your new brows will need time to heal.
Here are some important aftercare tips to keep in mind when you’re planning when to get your brows done:
No Moisture for 10 Days!
The very best eyebrow results come avoiding any and all moisture on your brows for at least 10 days following your appointment. Your goal is to keep your brows completely dry which will help them retain their color, detail, and crisp appearance. It might seem inconvenient, but taking care of your brows will be worth it!
Here’s what you need to do:
- Keep your face out of the stream of the shower and do your best to keep your brows as dry as possible when you wash your hair and face. Wash your face only from your eyes down to avoid getting any soap and water in your brows. Keep a dry towel nearby to pat your brows dry in case they do get moist. Keep your showers short so that too much steam doesn’t affect your brows.
- When you do wash your face, avoid splashing water onto your face as you might usually do. Opt instead to clean your face gently with a washcloth or a cleansing wipe. Don’t wipe the brows directly! Wash very carefully around the brows being careful not to get them damp.
Avoid Cosmetics and Grooming After Your Microblading in Temecula Appointment
Don’t use any cosmetics on your eyebrows for 2 weeks after your appointment. This includes powders, eyebrow pencil, or brow pomade. Your skin might start to feel dry or tight after the first week, in which case you can use a small amount of fragrance-free moisturizers such as Cetaphil or coconut oil once a day. Apply a very thin layer and don’t rub the eyebrows as you do so.
Avoid any plucking or tweezing of your brows for 10 days so your brows will have a chance to heal. Also, avoid any eyebrow treatments such as threading or waxing while your skin heals.
Avoid Excessive Exercise
-After you get your brows done, you need to avoid any heavy exercising (or any activities that cause you to sweat) for at least 10 days post your procedure. To maintain detail and color, it’s very important that you heed this aftercare advice.
Be Cautious With Sun Exposure
Be cautious about the amount of direct sunshine you’re exposed to as your brows heal. You should also avoid any tanning beds or laying out to tan. Doing so will compromise the quality of your new eyebrows.
