Aftercare is one of the most important parts of the microblading process and can greatly effect the results of your brows. Take care to follow the aftercare instructions carefully, and know what to expect when your eyebrows are healing!
Post Treatment Care
30 minutes after your treatment, after washing your hands, gently cleanse your eyebrows with one of the Phi Wipes provided. Do not stretch the skin while wiping. Skin is well cleansed when there are no traces of pigment on the wipe. Let the brows dry completely and apply a very thin layer of the Skin Candy provided. Repeat this process 3-5 times the first day.
- For dry and normal skin: Apply a think layer of Skin Candy 3-5 times a day, for the next 6 days without using the Phi Wipes. For oily skin: only apply Skin Candy if you feel tightness or stretching in the treated area.
- AVOID for 7 days: All products other than the PhiShield (including makeup!) on eyebrow area, workouts which cause sweating, saunas, facials/facial massage, steaming and sleeping on the brows (also - be sure to use a clean pillow case).
- AVOID for 30 days: Sunbathing/direct sun exposure, light therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and creams containing regeneration factors.
- ALWAYS AVOID: Laser treatments over the microbladed area (fraxel, IPL, etc), as they can destroy the pigments and cause burns. Use of antibiotics and hormonal therapy can lead to faster pigment fading. Always protect your new brows from the sun with SPF (with the exception of the first 7 days).
An important note about showering: Limit hot showers to 5 minutes (or take lukewarm showers) as to not create too much steam, which will push pigment out of your bladed brows. Wash your hair at the end of your shower to keep your face/brows from being wet for too long. You should try to keep your face out of your shower water for the first 7 days to avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the brows.
Lastly... DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH your microbladed brows! DO NOT attempt to pick at flaking brows, or you risk losing pigment and causing scaring.
