It takes your body up to 4 - 6 weeks to fully heal a wound. That's why it is important to wait that long until your crucial second touch up appointment. Yes, it can be hard to push through! But it is well worth it.
When an injury penetrates deep enough to damage your dermis, the inner layer of your skin. Within a few minutes, platelets in your blood start sticking to the site of injury and binding together, which is called the hemostasis phase of wound healing (better known as blood clotting).
With the wound is now plugged up, your body unleashes its molecular cleanup crew, clearing out dead tissue, bacteria, and any foreign material that found its way into the injury site (which is why you need to blot so the scabs don't pull out the pigment.). Blood vessels dilate in order to let important antibodies, growth factors, nutrients, and enzymes reach the wound. This is called the inflammatory phase of wound healing—and as you might guess by that name, it’s accompanied by some less-than-delightful pain, swelling, & redness.
Next, it’s time to start rebuilding the wound. New collagen and other substances are helping to form new connective tissue. Myofibroblasts help shrink the wound by gripping the edges of the injured area and contracting—leading to the tight, itchy feeling you’ve probably experienced as a wound starts to heal. This is the proliferative phase of wound healing.
Last comes the remodeling or maturation phase—where collagen fibers get reorganized, any cells that are no longer needed die off, and healing is complete. Sometimes it takes longer healing time for deeper wounds. Luckily, Microblading is not very deep at all, making it semi-permanent.
Avoid Water For 24 Hours
Your eyelash extensions can’t get wet for 24 hours after application. After that 24 hours is up you can shower, soak, swim, and go crazy with water all you want. But those first 24 hours are a water-free zone! Plan ahead for this.
Wash Them! (after 24 hours of course)
Your lashes, both real and extensions, collect environmental pollutants, such as dust, chlorine and salt water. With closed eyes, gently apply to base of lashes using downward strokes, softly sweeping across lashes. Follow with a gentle water rinse and then let your lashes dry naturally. This will protect your lashes from eye makeup or eyeshadow that may get dusted onto your lashes.
Oil Free Products ONLY!
The oils in many makeup and remover products are the worst enemy of your lashes. The oil breaks down the adhesive causing premature lash loss. Lucky for you there are oil free options for you to use.
You can use mascara on your lash extensions for a more dramatic look, but I recommend only a light pass, and only occasionally. If you choose to apply mascara, similarly, use an “extension safe” mascara option.
Yes they are new and fun, but your extensions are not a toy! Your natural lashes have their own cycle and shed naturally, so avoid rough handling such as rubbing and pulling which can remove your natural lashes and the extensions. Never be tempted to pick or remove extensions yourself. Always consult your technician for help.
You can even help out your lash longevity when you sleep. By sleeping on your back or side, you can minimize the pressure on your lashes.
Gentle Sleep and Satin
Use a satin pillowcase can help you maintain your lashes. Not only do satin pillow cases look and feel luxurious, the silky smooth fabric reduces friction which in turn helps keep your lashes in place (studies have shown that sleeping on a satin pillowcase can help eliminate hair loss and breakage). So avoid cotton pillowcases and splash out on satin, which gives the added benefit of a “cool touch,” perfect for those warm summer nights!
You are so in love with your new brows! They are perfect! The fresh newly microbladed brows will begin to heal as fast as we began. So please No touching or covering them, they need to breathe. Blotting your eyebrows every hour to ensure scabs are not forming over them, and applying cream if you are not planning on dry healing.
Your brows will be in full healing process, fresh new brows already mending themselves! The pigment will have gotten darker, a lot darker. But don't freak out! It is totally normal!
Some scabs may have formed and are beginning to slough off, peel or flake. This too is totally normal and to be expected though not everyone experiences this. Just bear with the proces, It will be worth it!
You should be able to wear makeup at this point, however be cautious of your own healing process. If it looks iffy, it probably is! Your brows may look like they have disappeared but don't worry, they will return!
Your brows may have appeared and some strokes may look faded in some spots or gone all together. This too is totally normal. Everyone heals differently and to be expected. 4-6 weeks you can get your touch up!
Your touch up is done and you are feeling more fabulous than ever! All the faded strokes are corrected and they look even more perfect! Unfortunately, your skin needs to heal again! Expect the steps to repeat and take care of them as best you can!
