Tips For a Smooth Aftercare of Microblading

Microblading is a popular semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that gives you beautifully shaped and filled eyebrows. While the initial results can be stunning, it's crucial to understand that proper aftercare is essential to ensure the best and longest-lasting results.

Here are some tips for a smooth aftercare routine after your microblading session.

Keep Them Dry

In the first few days after, avoid getting your eyebrows wet. Water can cause the ink to blur and affect the final results. This means no swimming, saunas, or steamy showers during this time.

Avoid Makeup and Skincare Products

Steer clear of makeup and skincare products on and around the eyebrow area for at least a week. These products can introduce bacteria and hinder the healing process.

Gentle Cleansing

After the initial dry period, you can gently clean your eyebrows with a mild, non-alcoholic cleanser. Be sure to pat them dry afterward—never rub.

Apply the Recommended Ointment

Your microblading technician will provide you with a healing ointment. Apply this as directed to keep the area moisturized and promote healing. Do not use any other creams or ointments.

Avoid Sun Exposure

UV rays can fade the pigments, so protect your eyebrows from direct sunlight and tanning beds. If you're going out in the sun, use sunscreen or a hat to shield your brows.

Avoid Excessive Sweating

Intense exercise and excessive sweating can affect the healing process. It's best to avoid strenuous physical activity for a week or so after.

Follow-Up Appointment

Most microblading procedures require a touch-up appointment about 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This is essential for perfecting the shape and color of your eyebrows, so don't skip it.

Remember that the healing process can vary from person to person, but following these aftercare tips can significantly contribute to the success and longevity of your microblading results. Your beautifully defined eyebrows will be worth the care and patience you invest in their aftercare.


What To Expect After Microblading

Microblading is a popular cosmetic treatment that involves using a small, handheld tool to create hair-like strokes in the eyebrow area. This treatment can help to enhance and define your eyebrows, giving them a more full and natural appearance.
If you're considering it, it's important to know what to expect after the procedure.

Firstly, it's important to note that your eyebrows will look darker and more intense immediately after the treatment. This is because the pigment used during the procedure will be more concentrated and will need time to settle into the skin. You may also experience some redness and swelling around the treated area, which is completely normal and should subside within a few days.


During the first week after the procedure, it's important to keep the treated area clean and dry. Avoid getting your eyebrows wet, and avoid using any skincare products or makeup in the eyebrow area. You may also need to avoid certain activities, such as swimming or intense exercise, to prevent excessive sweating.

Around the second week after the procedure, you may notice some flaking and peeling around the treated area. This is a natural part of the healing process and is nothing to be concerned about. It's important not to pick or scratch at the treated area, as this can interfere with the healing process and may lead to scarring.

Follow up

After about four weeks, you will have a follow-up appointment with your microblading technician. During this appointment, they will assess the healing process and touch up any areas that may need additional pigment. It's important to attend this appointment to ensure that your eyebrows look their best.

Overall, this procedure can be a great way to enhance and define your eyebrows. By knowing what to expect after the procedure, you can ensure that you take the necessary steps to ensure proper healing and achieve the best possible results.


The Benefits of Eyebrow Microblading

Microblading makes your eyebrows pop. It has become a hugely popular beauty service in the world of cosmetics and tattooing. Technically, it's manually performed using a hand tool to draw individual hair strokes. The result is a very natural look that can last for years to come. Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reshape, define, or fill in gaps from overplucking their own eyebrows. Additionally, it can benefit anyone who is experiencing hair loss or a lack of hair growth in their brows. However, this treatment is not best for those with oily skin.

Here at Exquisite Aesthetics, we love our opportunities to provide fast, quality-driven microblading solutions. We also offer ombre powder using a specialized digital tattoo machine. This machine achieves heavier shading towards the end of the eyebrow and lighter shading towards the front. Overall, this method is usually preferrable for people looking to make corrections or cover-ups to their eyebrows. Also, it tends to work better on oily skin as well because no strokes are made.

So, let's go over all of the benefits you can retain from getting your brows microbladed...


Benefits of microblading your brows

  • Creates natural-looking hair strokes
  • Lasts for years and is waterproof with little to no upkeep
  • Can work to fill in brows that have been overplucked or need reshaping
  • It can be done on individuals with any type of complexion because the service is usually done by color matching your natural brow hairs to your skin tone (a darker complexion may require several sessions to produce the desired result)
  • Topical numbing cream is applied to decrease pain
  • Will save you lots of time getting ready in the morning
  • Increases your confidence

As you can see, the benefits of microblading your eyebrows are substantial and the results last a very long time. However, keep in mind that any kind of semi-permanent tattoo service usually requires touch-ups each year to maintain the quality and aesthetic of the tattoo. It is recommended not to use sunbeds, chemical peels, certain medications, excessive alcohol consumption, or chlorinated pools while you have your microbladed brows because they can fade quicker if you engage in these activities between your touch-up sessions.
