The great thing about a Lash Lift / Brow Lamination is that it is a very low maintenance procedure, however, there is a little extra care required over the first 24-48hrs.
• Be gentle with your lashes/brows; no rubbing.
• Do not get your lashes/brows wet for the first 24 hrs.
• Do not use harsh products on your eyes/lashes/brows.
• Use of Sauna/Steam is possible after 24hrs but may weaken the effect of the lift.
• No eye make-up for 24 hours.
• Avoid waterproof mascara.
• Swimming should be avoided for at least 24hrs.
• No other facial beauty treatments for 24hrs.
• Do not touch or rub your eyes, eyelashes, or eyebrows immediately after the treatment.
o If redness or irritation occurs apply a cool damp cotton compress to the eye area.
o If symptoms persist for more than 24 hours seek medical advice
• For the first two hours please avoid any water contact on the lashes or brows
• Do not sleep on your face.
• Avoid hot water or steam on the face or near the eyes.
DAY 3 & Each Day Thereafter:
• Please refrain from all attempts to rub the eyes or lashes.
• Do not use oil based products or any conditioning treatments/ serums on the lashes.
• This will cause the Semi-permanent mascara to dissolve faster.
• Effects of the tint will start to diminish within 2 to 3 weeks as hair grows out and the tint color fades.
• Strong sunlight/UV light can make the tint color fade faster– Use a gentle foaming facial cleanser or eye makeup remover and avoid exfoliating cleansers or those products containing AHA’s and oil
• Do not apply makeup or mascara to lashes or receive any other eye treatments for at least 24 hours after the lash or brow tinting treatment.
There are a few things you should do to maintain your eyelash extensions.
Don’t get them wet for 24-48 hours after application
For the first 24-48 hours after application, avoid taking a shower, washing your eyes, or getting your eyelash extensions wet. Water can affect the glue, causing the bond to become brittle and easy to break. After that, wash them regularly. After the first 48 hours, residue will start to build up around the lash line if you don’t wash your extensions. This can lead to eye infections and other eye issues. Instead, you’re going to want to clean your lash extensions around every 3 days. You can do so by performing the following steps:
Brush them with a soft bristle brush.
Wash them with a special eyelash extension cleanser or distilled water.
Do not let the water from your shower run down your face and over your eyes. Brush them daily. Every morning, you’re going to want to brush your eyelash tips to keep them looking good. It’s best to use a clean, dry spoolie (aka the kind of brush used to apply mascara) and to support your lashes with a clean finger as you brush.
Use caution with products
You shouldn’t be using any oil-based products near your eyelash extensions. So, check your products before using them — especially eye creams and makeup removers. Be careful with makeup. You’ll also want to skip mascara, even the ones that market themselves as “extension-safe.” Waterproof makeup, such as waterproof mascara, can soften the glue on your lash extensions. If you use eyeliner, which it is best not to, opt for a water-based, non-waterproof version — and be gentle when you remove your makeup at the end of the night.
Rubbing your eyes isn’t good for your extensions.
It could damage them and your real lashes. Powdery eyeshadow might not be a great idea either, as the powder can get stuck in the glue and build up over time.
What not to do
Don’t pick at them. Your extensions will feel weird at first, but after a couple days, you should feel more comfortable with them. But no matter how weird they feel, don’t pick at them, or try to remove them yourself. All you’ll do is tear or break your real lashes.
No sleeping on your stomach or side
If you sleep on your stomach or your side, you might crush your lashes, making them last a shorter period of time. If you sleep on your back instead, they’ll last longer.
Don’t use eyelash curlers
They can damage your extensions or pull them out.
When to get them done again
Lash extensions usually last about 2 to 4 weeks, but they can last longer if you take care of them.
You can get them taken out early if you want, but make sure a professional does it. Otherwise, they’ll fall out on their own.
Do not sweat heavily or workout 48 hours beforehand.
No alcohol or caffeine 48 hours prior to microblading.
Botox and any filler should be avoided for at least eight weeks prior to microblading procedure.
Avoid the sun and tanning for at least two weeks (no sunburn)
Do not take ibuprofen, aspirin, vitamin E, or niacin within 48 hours before microblading.
Discontinue the use of these herbs and spices at least 48 hours before the procedure: ginger, cinnamon, garlic, black and cayenne pepper.
Refrain from any tinting, waxing,or threading one week prior to procedure.
Discontinue Retin-A, retinol, anti-aging or acne creams, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), microdermabrasion, chemical peels, IPL or laser peels, micro- needling and any chemical exfoliant or skin brightening products for at least 6 weeks beforehand.
Do not take fish oil, prenatal vitamins, nutritional shakes or hair, skin and nail supplements at least two weeks prior to microblading.
Be mindful that you can be more sensitive during a menstrual cycle.
No sores, pimples or moles in the eyebrow area.
It is particularly important that you do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure.
After 4 days, make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the postcare ointment (A&D ointment) with clean hands. This can be done once at nighttime, but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself. Please continue to apply the ointment for 7 days.
The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure:
- Increased sweating
- Practicing sports
- Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
- Sun tanning or salon tanning
- UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
- Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck
- Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
- Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
- Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
- Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
- Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab
Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.
Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Rock Glam Lash Studio immediately to discuss further instructions.
CONTACT A PHYSICIAN IF ANY SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS DEVELOP SUCH AS THE FOLLOWING: FEVER, REDNESS AT THE SITE, SWELLING, TENDERNESS OF THE PROCEDURE SITE, ELEVATED BODY TEMPERATURE, RED STREAKS GOING FROM THE PROCEDURE SITE TOWARDS THE HEART, AND/OR ANY GREEN/YELLOW DISCHARGE THAT IS FOUL IN ODOR.
What to Expect During and After Your Microblading Session:
Entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new temporary eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day.
Note, that because of natural skin regeneration, after the recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, customers develop bald spots, or lose original hair strokes, which make brows look uneven. It is completely normal. That’s the reason why most customers need a touchup after 6 weeks.
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure.
Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.
Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. When using foundation, be aware when applying to avoid your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter.
You can now enjoy your beautiful new semi-permanent eyebrows.
You will simply love your new gorgeous fresh look!
