Powder Brows


Proper aftercare is a very important aspect of the long term success, effectiveness and overall satisfaction with your new eyebrow tattoo. It is crucial these instructions are followed to ensure a comfortable healing process and to achieve the best possible results.

The healing process

Your brows will appear significantly darker and more defined then expected immediately after your procedure and in the following 10 days. Up to half of the color will fade as the scabs fall off within this period. In some cases, the scabs may take longer to heal and fall off, but do not pick at the scabs. The pigment is within the scab and you do not want to pull any pigment out of your skin prematurely. The area can be a little sore for the first few hours and tender to touch for a couple of days.

The day of treatment


After the procedure, gently blot the area with clean tissue or clean Q-tip to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 30 minutes for the full day until the oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids.

The first week


Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. Don't worry, this does not remove the pigment!

Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. Do not use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.


Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment ( we provided ) with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

The second week

The aftercare ointment no longer needs to be applied, but continue to gently wash the microbladed area each morning and night.

Avoid sleeping on your face for half a week.

No swimming for at least another week.

Important reminders

Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring, infection or loss of color.

No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.

Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.

Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors.

Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days.

Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.

Avoid face-down swimming, and hot tubs for the first 10 days.

Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.

Do not rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.
