PMU Brow Aftercare Instructions

for beautiful healed results

STAGE ONE: Days 1-3

During this stage of healing, the skin recognises your new microblading as a fresh wound. Expect lymph drainage, discomfort and inflammation.

Stage One

Morning Routine

Cleanse

Wash brows with cool water and a gentle PMU cleanser.

Using a clean gauze or cotton round, wipe brows very gently in one direction to remove lymph drainage and any balm.

Avoid

Avoid any scrubbing or exfoliating!

Dry

Pat dry with a clean gauze or cotton round.

Hydrate

Use a clean cotton swab to emulsify the healing balm then scoop up a rice grain amount.

While the skin is still dewy, lightly apply a thin layer of balm onto brows.

STAGE ONE

Daytime Routine

Blot

Blot away any lymph with a soft woven gauze or cotton round.

Reapply

Lightly reapply balm every 2-3 hrs, or as needed, to maintain hydration.

If you feel any itchiness, tightness or discomfort, apply more balm.

Do not allow your skin to fully dry out. Keep skin hydrated.

Avoid

Avoid extended or direct sun exposure + sweating + pools + hot tubs + lakes + salt water + hot or long showers!

Avoid touching or picking your brows!

STAGE ONE

Evening Routine

Cleanse

Wash brows with cool water and a gentle cleanser.

Using a clean gauze or cotton round, wipe brows very gently in one direction to remove lymph drainage and any balm.

Dry

Pat dry with a clean gauze or cotton round.

Hydrate

Use a clean cotton swab to emulsify the healing balm then scoop up a rice grain amount.

While the skin is still dewy, lightly apply a thin layer of balm onto brows.

Avoid

Avoid any facials or advanced treatments!

Avoid products with anti-aging ingredients (i.e. Retinol) — they will alter your healed results!

STAGE TWO: Days 4-7

During this stage of healing, the skin cells are beginning to regenerate. Light itchiness and minimal flaking is normal and to be expected during this stage. It’s also normal to experience a day or two when your pigment seems significantly lighter.

STAGE TWO

Tips

Keep it up

Keep consistent with your morning, daytime, and evening aftercare routines.

Avoid

Avoid picking, itching or exfoliating flaking skin!

Trust

Trust the hydrated healing process. Know that your pigment is still intact even if it appears lighter.

Keep applying balm.

Troubleshoot

If you’re scabbing, you haven’t been using enough balm.

Reapply more balm to soothe itching and prevent scabbing.

STAGE THREE: Days 8 - 14

During this stage of healing, the skin is healed and feeling much better! But, it is very important to continue supporting + protecting your fresh, new skin barrier. 

STAGE THREE

Tips

Keep it up

Keep consistent with your morning, daytime, and evening aftercare routines.

If you are a dry skin type, you may still be experiencing flaking or discomfort. In this case, we encourage you to continue consistent use of the balm through day 14.

You're allowed

You may begin using tinted brow gel or powder.

You also have permission to apply a little more pressure when washing brows.

Avoid

Make sure

STAGE FOUR: Days 15 - 60

During this stage of healing, your aftercare routines are all about protection.

STAGE FOUR

Tips

Avoid

Continue avoiding direct sun exposure.

Avoid any facial treatments and limit anti-aging products around the brow area — especially, prior to your touch-up appointment — they will alter your end results.

Don't forget

When applying SPF, apply it on your brows, too!
