If you are considering microblading, it is important to learn and understand the proper way to care for your eyebrows post procedure to ensure the best results and reduce the risk of infection and other complications.

When new clients come to us, we make sure they not only understand what the process entails, but also what post-care and maintenance should look like — after all, our goal is to help our clients achieve long-lasting results they can be proud of!

Our Coronado microblading specialist put together some tips on how to properly care for the eyebrow and surrounding skin after undergoing microblading to prevent infection and ensure the best results:

Things to Avoid Post Microblading

There are certain things you should avoid after a microblading appointment to prevent irritation and other complications, including:

  • Applying makeup to the face, especially near the eyebrow area
  • Applying creams or lotions on or near the eyebrow
  • Exposure to the sun (this can cause fading or peeling of the tattoo and can result in patches and irritation)
  • Shampooing the hair (its important to keep any type of soap away from the area)
  • Rubbing or picking at the scabs
  • Exercise or activities that cause sweating

How to Safely Wash the Face

It is important to keep water and soap away from the brow area. We recommend using a damp sponge or washcloth to gently clean the face while avoiding the eyebrow area altogether.

It may help if you:

  • Wet a sponge or cloth with warm water
  • Apply a small amount of face wash to the wet cloth
  • Squeeze out excess water to prevent drips
  • Gently dab the cloth around the face, avoiding the brow area
  • Carefully pat the skin dry while avoiding any rubbing or contact with the brows

Tips for Safe Healing

It is important to ask your technician for post microblading care instructions. He or she should provide you with a care instruction sheet and if you have any questions always contact your technician to make sure you are taking the proper precaution during the healing process.

Some of the things you can do to support proper healing include:

  • Keep the area clean — your technician will advise you when it is safe to gently clean the area with a mild facial cleanser and slightly warm water.
  • Apply the ointment provided or recommended by your technician — after several days, when your technician says it safe, you will want to apply a small amount of ointment to the area to create a protective barrier and to help with the healing process. Your technician will likely recommend something like Aquaphor.
  • Keep it moist — when your technician says its safe make sure to keep the skin moisturized. If it dries out it can heal unevenly.
  • Do not use anything medicated without seeing a physician — if you feel like the skin is irritated or infected, see a physician before applying any additional ointment such as Neosporin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know before microblading.


Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo, used for the purpose of reconstructing sparse eyebrows or simply to enhance already full brows. The proper ink is chosen and mixed to fit your exact skin tone to look the most natural and realistic. We then create small, hair-like strokes to perfectly mimic natural and gorgeous eyebrows.


Healed microblading results last anywhere from 1-2 years, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, results usually fade a little faster than those with dryer skin types. Touch-ups are required to maintain the microbladed look. First touch-up is included.


Please read the faqs page completely to ensure that you are an eligible candidate for microblading. Prior to your procedure: -Do not take Advil or other blood thinners such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Niacin or Vitamin E ,drink alcohol or take caffeine within 24 hours of your procedure, go tanning within 24 hours of the procedure, make sure to not have had facial fillers done at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure. Do not do facial fillers at least 2 weeks after the procedure.


-Anybody can get microblading done as long as the following does not apply. Those who are: Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your doctor),Viral infections and/or diseases,Epilepsy, A Pacemaker or major heart problems, Had an Organ transplant, Skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.), Sick (cold, flu, etc.), Pregnant or Nursing. Please contact us if you have had any facial fillers in the past two months*. Please contact us if you have used any prescription acne medication in the past year*.


Microbladed brows typically take 6 weeks to fully heal. Within the first week the pigment will appear much darker, and your eyebrows will look very bold. Do not worry! This is part of the healing process and it means that you are healing properly. After the first week the eyebrows will begin to get lighter, as by now the scabbing should be taking place. This is also normal! Around week 2, most of the scabbing should be done, and you will begin to see your full and natural eyebrow shape come through. Let it heal naturally, and only begin to wash your eyebrows with a mild foamy anti-bacterial soap after 14 days.


There should be absolutely NO picking at your eyebrows for the first 10 days. The first 10 days are the most crucial for having healthy healed eyebrows. Let the epithelial crust and natural scabbing occur on its own. After the first two weeks, you are allowed to begin washing them again. Try to keep the area as dry as possible in the first 10 days. Do not swim in fresh, salt, or chlorinated pool water for at least 2-4 weeks following your procedure. Limit sun exposure for 14 days following the procedure. For the first two weeks, avoid:Water, cleansers, creams, makeup, heavy sweating in the brow area, tanning and heavy sun exposure, Facials, facial fillers, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion.


Discomfort is minimal, although a numbing cream is applied to alleviate any discomfort.
