Microblading Scottsdale Before / Aftercare & Healing

Suggested before & aftercare as well as healing suggestions for microblading services.

There are many things to keep in mind before and after a microblading procedure. One of the most immediate changes is that brow hair strokes WILL appear crisp, darker and bold at first, but will soften up in appearance as the tissue heals. The area will shed, taking some color with it, this is normal. The brow area will begin to oxidize and darken over the 1st month. Its important to start with a slightly darker color as it will fade after it heals.

Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures. The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red & irritated. This is all 100% normal. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH OR PICK AT YOUR BROWS. These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis.

Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 40% to 60%. At the scheduled touch up we will fine tune any area that has faded too much. Healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every few months to maintain its fresh natural appearance. Fading will happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your bodies healing process. You may need to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows not a permanent one.

Eyebrow Before Care


After your procedure is done, you will be given instructions on how to care for your brows during the initial healing period, this includes:

No sun beds or tanning
No sweating in the gym
No saunas or steam rooms
No makeup on the brow area
No anti-aging creams on the brow area
No picking at scabs if they appear
Do not itch the brow area or pull the scabs away
Leave brow area alone & let area heal for at least 10 days
Avoid getting eyebrows wet or soaked in water
Avoid using anything on your brows, especially anything that contains oil

Important Aftercare Notes

Smoking will cause the pigment to fade prematurely and anesthetics will not last as long
DO NOT bleach your eyebrows, the chemicals will bleach the hair & the pigment as well
No chemical peels 60 days prior and must wait 60 days after (avoiding the forehead is recommended)
If you do frequent peels, the brows will fade quicker due to various chemicals in the peels, other anti-aging creams or serums containing acids will fade your microbladed brows prematurely even after it is healed
