How to Make Your Microblading Last
At AMAE Med Spa, our microneedling clients come to us understanding the inherent value of investing in their appearance. Microneedling not only provides patients with thicker, fuller eyebrows, it also saves them time during their daily routine. Thanks to microblading, the hours once spent shaping and filling in their brows every morning are now a thing of the past.
For this reason, we like to see our Troy, MI area patients get the biggest return on their investment, and try to provide the longest-lasting microblading results that we can. And, when combined with following the tips compiled in this article, patients are even more likely to walk away from their microneedling appointment with results that are extremely long-lasting.
Long Lasting Microblading – Proper Aftercare
For a successful microblading experience, it is crucial that a series of simple -yet very important- aftercare steps be followed by our Troy, MI area patients.
Following treatment, patients must refrain from scratching, picking at, peeling, or even touching the microblading area. Failure to do so may result in pigment being removed, or in worse cases, may cause scarring.
Microblading patients may also notice the skin of the treatment area flaking, peeling, or scabbing. Using a clean cotton swab, this can be treated by applying post-care ointment provided by the aesthetician. However, microblading patients must resist the urge to touch, itch, or peel the skin of the treatment area.
Eyebrows enhanced with microblading will generally heal completely after 7 to 10 days. Until such time, it is also important to avoid getting any makeup on them.
Keep Eyebrows Dry after Microblading
The length of time during which microneedling eyebrows must be kept try varies from case to case. Upon completing treatment, the aesthetician will advise the patient how long before they can safely wet their microneedling treatment area.
Once enough time has passed for microblading patients to safely shower, they may protect their eyebrows from moisture by applying a layer of post-care cream to the treatment area. While showering, microblading patients should take care to keep their face away from the stream of water.
After their appointment, microblading patients should do whatever they can to avoid sweating. Activities such as sports, yoga, and other forms of sweat-inducing exercise should be avoided until the eyebrows heal completely. Microblading patients should also refrain from swimming, using a hot tub, or using a sauna.
Avoid Sun Exposure to make Microblading LAst
At AMAE Med Spa, we remind our Troy, MI area patients that tanning is horrible for the skin – and it is even worse for eyebrows treated with microblading. Until the brows have fully healed, microblading patients must refrain from tanning of any kind -both in the sun or in a salon. Once completely healed, microblading patients who cannot avoid tanning must only do so after applying sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to their brows.
Sun exposure can significantly speed up the process by which the color pigment fades, meaning that microneedling patients who engage in tanning will most likely have shorter-lasting results.
Other Things to Avoid after Microblading
Microblading patients should avoid laser treatments or chemical peels near the eyebrows. Creams containing Retin-A or Glycol Acid must also be kept away from the face and neck until the patient has completely healed from their microblading treatment. Once they have healed, such products (as well as all other harsh or exfoliating chemicals) should still be kept away from the treatment area.
While healing from microblading, patients should avoid exposure to dust and debris in the air. This means refraining from riding in open-air vehicles including convertibles, motorcycles, bicycles, and boats. Cleaning activities that raise dust (such as vacuuming or raking leaves) should also be avoided until completely healed.
Microblading patients are also dissuaded from smoking or heavily drinking alcohol, as both can result in a slow healing process. Microblading patients should also avoid smoke-filled rooms (and second hand smoke in general) until they have healed completely.
The longevity of one’s microbladed eyebrows can be impacted by environmental factors such as exposure to the sun, wind, smoke, or salt water. The patient’s skin town, as well as their ability to retain and absorb pigment, also factor into how long their microblading results will last.
