Microblading Healing Process
Updated: May 31
Since microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing, it’s important to know that there is a healing process following your appointment. But don’t stress, it’s nothing a little patience and careful cleaning can’t handle.
So, if you’re thinking about taking the leap into the world of beautiful brows, fear not. I’m here to give you the scoop on the microblading healing process.
You can’t go into the details of the microblading healing process without touching on some prep. It’s recommended to wash your hair the day of your appointment (or the night before) to help prolong the amount of time you can go again before washing.
After all, while you are caring for your healing brows, you’ll need to do your best to keep them dry. Washing your hair will be one of the more challenging tasks through your healing process.
Following your microblading appointment, you can anticipate the healing process lasting 10 days. During this time, you must keep your brows completely dry aside from cleaning (detailed below).
Cleaning Your Brows
Also included in your take-home care kit will be a special cleanser to wash your brows morning and night while they are healing - this is the only time you can get them wet.
After you cleanse your brows, apply a rice grain size of healing ointment that is also provided. You’ll continue this process until your brows are completely healed.
Keeping Your Brows Dry
At Brows by Nat, you will be provided with a take-home care kit that includes face shields to help keep your brows dry in the shower.
As previously mentioned, you will need to take special care anytime you shower or wash your face to keep your brows dry. Try to go as long as possible between hair wash days and wash your face with a washcloth at the sink rather than in the shower to avoid the brow area carefully.
Sweating around your brow area can prolong your healing process. It is recommended to wait 7-10 days after your appointment before working out again. Your sweat is full of salt and minerals which can push out the fresh pigment in your brows, affecting the healed result. Protect your investment, it is worth the wait!
Brow Care Tips
In addition to the healing process details listed above, during the 10 days of healing, here are a few more brow care tips to follow:
Stay out of the sun
Sleep on your back
As your brows are healing, you will likely go through a phase of itchiness and flaking. Make sure you avoid picking or scratching at your brows, no matter how itchy they get!
In the end, how you take care of your brows has a major impact on the final result of your microblading investment. The better you are about caring for them during this process means better and longer lasting healed results.
