Aftercare and Maintenance
During the first 24 hours, you should relax and try not to do too much. In addition, you’ll want to avoid exercise for the first 48 hours after treatment, as it can interfere with the healing process. When going to bed at night, prop yourself up with a pillow to reduce swelling.
For the next week, you’ll want to carefully wash and moisturize the area. Gently wash with water and an antibacterial soap; rub the area in a smooth motion for ten seconds, and then rinse with water to make sure all the soap is washed away. Apply a tiny amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it carefully across the treated area.
There are a couple of things to make sure you avoid during the healing process:
- No makeup in the brows for 10 days.
- No Scratching or picking the brows.
- No long hot showers for 10 days, limit to 5-8 minutes.
- No use of acid or manual exfoliants.
- No use of any topicals other than healing cream.
- No sweating in brows for 10 days.
- No swimming or sauna for 10 days.
- No UV exposure or tanning.
- No acne products or hydroxy acids.
- No laser light therapy.
- No facials for 30 days.
- No threading, waxing or removal products.
- No long showers—keep it to a maximum of eight minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Permanent makeup is a tattoo that is used to give your eyebrows, lips, or skin a natural, more beautiful look. It provides many of the benefits of make-up without the hassle of putting it on.
First, the skin will be numbed using a topical cream. Then, nano needles will be used to deposit pigment under the upper epidermis. For microblading, small incisions will be made, within which the pigment will be placed. This initial application tends to be very conservative, since each person’s skin is different. A second application will be necessary 6—12 weeks after the initial appointment in order to make touch-ups.
Generally, permanent makeup will last between one and three years, depending on your skin type and lifestyle.
Each appointment is generally between 1.5 and 2 hours.
Generally speaking, the price will be between $500 and $600.
