Aftercare

Microblading

For 6 hours after your treatment leave your brows to begin their healing process, gently wipe over your brows with cooled boiled water on a cotton pad (not saturated). Remove any lymph. Tap dry and apply a thin layer of the balm provided. 

 

For oily skin use the balm for 24 hours only.

Drier skin types may continue to use balm for 7-14 days.

Microblading likes a not too dry, not too oily environment. Do not over balm. 

 

 If your appointment is in the PM, please wash your brows once and apply the night patches (provided) to wear overnight for 1 night only. 

 

For the next 7 days, maintain facial hygiene  (without saturation of brows) and reapply balm after washing your face or showering.  

 

TO BE AVOIDED

During the first  7 days  avoid all creams except balm provided. 

All make up, increased sweating, saunas, any facial treatments and steaming. 

 

After the first week you many begin using  SPF 

During the next 30 days, avoid sunbathing, sunbeds, light therapies, chemical peels, fruit acids, microdermabrasion, creams that contain regeneration factors, laser/IPL,- this will destroy the pigment and cause burns. 

 

Please note- use of antibiotics and hormone therapies can lead to faster pigment fading.

Lamination

For the first 24 hours avoid getting your brows excessively wet. 

The products used are water resistant to allow for showering , however please avoid swimming, saunas and steam rooms.

 

 

Should your brows become wet, always set your brows back into shape when wet, this will ensure they remain lifted for longer. 

 

 

TO BE AVOIDED

Make up remover or chemicals for the first 24-48 hours as this can cause lashes to curl or frizz

Make up or eye treatments for first 24 hours

Direct sunlight or sunbeds as they can fade your tint.

Self tanning products for 24 hours, these can grab around tinted area

Retin -A, AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) or exfoliate around the eye areas for

72 hours after treatment.  

 

 

If any stinging or swelling occurs, apply a cold compress and contact FACE 19

 

Your brows are now chemically treated therefore it is essential that you apply a nourishing/Keratin serum or oil to apply daily.

Piercing

For the first 6 weeks, clean your piercing twice a day. 

After 6 weeks revert to once every 2 days until fully healed

 

Aftercare solution is available to purchase  from Face 19. Alternatively you may use a sea salt solution, made up of cooled boiled water  in a cup and 2 teaspoons of sea salt

 

Using a cotton bud clean around the piercing with either your purchased aftercare or the sea salt solution. 

Be gentle, remove any crust or discharge, being careful not to move the jewellery too much 

 

 

TO BE AVOIDED

Twisting or touching the jewellery 

Shampoo or other products getting into the pierced area

Changing the jewellery before 6 weeks~ if it is tender you may need to wait longer 

Remiving the jewellery ~ this will result in the piercing closing
