The microblading and nano brow healing process requires the use of 2 separate products to keep the area clean, support the healing process, and optimize retention.
 
Immediately after your microblading or nano brow procedure a light layer of toner will be applied to cleanse and sooth the treated area. This toner is safe for all skin types. This toner is to be used to keep the skin clean and hydrated and protect the skin from bacteria.
 
Then, for the next couple of weeks, you should be committed to taking good care of the treated area. “Good care” means protecting against exposure to sun, water, sweat, heat and touch. DO NOT interfere with area.
 
*Remember to keep hair/bangs away from face for 1 week

Day 1 Instructions:

After your initial appointment, a thin layer of the aftercare balm will be applied before you leave.

Every hour for the next 6 hours:

Using a Q-Tip and the aftercare MicroTonic (Glass vile), apply the tonic on your fresh Brows lightly to hydrate and soothe.

After the initial 6 hours:

On the last application of the tonic (hour 6), follow-up with a small amount of MicroBalm (sample jar) on a Q-tip (rice grain amount) and glide lightly over the brows in the direction of the hair growth. This will be the last thing you will do on day one of your brow appointment.

Next 7-10 days (or once flaking is done), morning and night:

Using a Q-Tip and MicroTonic (glass vile), pat your brows lightly to clean.
Follow-up with a small amount of MicroBalm (sample jar) on a Q-tip (rice grain amount) and glide lightly over the Brows.

Washing Instructions

Wash the tattooed area daily in the morning and night following your usual skincare routine. Use lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser and wash in the direction of the hair growth, pat dry with a soft tissue or cotton round and apply the tonic and a rice grain amount of the aftercare provided to the area, every time they are washed. Start washing them the next morning after your appointment. Keep the area clean and allow the skin to breathe for the best retention. Do not apply too much of the aftercare.

Recommended Cleansers

Cetaphil or Ponds would also work. Avoid using cleansers that contain oils, charcoals, acids and fragrance. Avoid using bar soaps or micellar waters.

What To Avoid for 7-10 Days

These activities may resume once brows are done flaking.

  • Increased sweating, exercises, strenuous activity.
  • Getting your eyebrows wet, outside of washing instructions.
  • Tanning bed use at any point after having your brows tattooed will result in discolouration and premature fading
  • UVA/UVB exposure will pose risk or discolouration. When brows are done flaking, apply SPF daily (AlumierMD sunscreens like clear shield for oily skin or Sheer hydration for dry skin are the best)
  • DO NOT PICK at any possible scabbing or flaking. You will pull out the ink prematurely.
  • Wash hands prior to washing brows, and wash your pillowcase to lower risk of infection.
  • Avoid Retinol, Retin-A, Vitamin A, Acids and Oils on your brows and forehead for one week.
  • No lotions, non-gentle cleansers, or makeup should be applied to the brows until they are done flaking.
