Post-Care Instructions for Brow Procedures
DAY 1: Wash hands with antibacterial soap before you wash your eyebrows. Then gently wipe your eyebrows EVERY HOUR FOR 4 HOURS with the pre-packaged wipes given to you. DO NOT RUB THE AREA IN ANY WAY. Gently pat dry with a lint free tissue or soft towel, then apply a very thin layer of the ointment I have provided you with.
DAYS 2-14: Keep eyebrows lightly glossed with the healing ointment three to four times a day for the next 14 days. Do not overuse the ointment. It should last you for 14 days, only apply a very thin layer. Wash your brows gently morning and evening with Dial Gold Antibacterial Soap or Baby Shampoo.
- Avoid getting brows wet. Occlude them with vaseline in the shower.
- Do not use any Retin-A, Glycolic Acids, Peroxide, Neosporin while healing.
- Do not scrub or pick your eyebrows.
- Do not expose area to sun or tanning bed.
- Avoid any facials, swimming, whirlpools or saunas for 14 days.
- Do not exercise the first 10 days. No heavy sweating!
- No make-up on the eyebrows for 10 days.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN LOSS OF PIGMENT.
What to Expect After Microblading & All Other Brow Procedures
- Slight swelling, thickness, and/or redness for one or two days following the procedure.
- It is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the color during the healing process.
- After the initial procedure, the color may appear a shade too dark; in 6 days it will appear lighter, after 10 days the color will show more.
- It will appear softer when completely healed because the color will come from the dermal layer of the skin to the epidermal layer of the skin.
- Please be patient. Healing takes up to 30 days. At your follow-up appointment, additional hair strokes can be added and brows will be perfected.
The brows will appear approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although it is difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a narrower appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size then you desire. This is all part of the healing process.

"I visited The Raised Brow interested in micro blading. I had done research into the procedure for months. A friend of mine recommended Merry to me. Naturally, my brows are thin and blonde so I had to fill them in daily. Even when I didn’t do a full face of makeup, I felt the need to fill in my brows. I just had my perfecting (second) visit and am loving my brows so much! I no longer feel the need to fill them in which has saved me a lot of time in the mornings. I highly recommend Merry at Beauty Ink. She is professional and her studio is very clean and comfortable. She was easy to and was easy to schedule with. Thank you, Merry!!" - Jenna Russell

I have recently had my brows microbladed and again for my follow-up “perfection” appointment and Merry was wonderful each time. She really takes time to measure your brows perfectly, listens intently to your feedback and personal preference!
