the after-care

We’re always happy to weigh in on your unique solution, but be sure to give your service’s aftercare description a read first. xx

Ideal, Lasting Results.

You've invested in your glow up — so get the full scoop on how to...

Microblading + Powder Brows

Do not use makeup, sunscreen, creams on the brows for 7-10 or until healing is complete. Stay away from moisture of any kind during this time (pools, saunas, steam rooms, working out). Additionally, stay out of the sun or other intense elements. Consider this like an open wound and treat it with care. It is worth it for your health and the result of the brow! 

Brows will appear darker during the first week. This is normal, however the resulting brow will fade 30-40% during the healing process. 


You may experience any of the following. You may experience none of it. Your skin is unique and so the healing process will be uniquely your own:

Itching, flaking, scabbing — do not pick the scabs! After a few days, you may gently use the pink spooly in your after care kit to brush off flakes. If you pick the scabs, the pigment won’t be retained as desired. This can lead to patchiness and require touch ups. 

Pain, sensitivity, swelling. Swelling is normal post-procedure. Once the numbing cream wears off, you may feel a sensation similar to a sunburn. This is normal, as there was trauma to the skin. We aren’t medical professionals so we can’t advise about what to take or not, but any treatments you would prefer for anti-inflammatory (ibuprofen, etc.) may be considered here.

Additionally, you can ice your brows to assist with any pain or swelling, but be sure to create a barrier using plastic wrap to protect the area.

Do your best to sleep on your back, if possible.

During the first week 

Clean brows with a damp gauze or splash with water. Wipe gently to remove excess lymph fluid at the surface and remove ointment from the day before — do this morning and night or as directed by your artist.

Then use a sterile, dry gauze to gently pat dry brows so there’s no excess moisture sitting on top of brows. 

Reapply a THIN layer of aftercare ointment later in the day and before bed with a clean applicator/Q-tip.

The intentional cleaning is the only time your brows should be getting wet. If you can avoid washing your hair for this time, please do. If you absolutely must wash your hair in the shower, please use the clear plastic visor included in your aftercare kit.

DAYS 2-7

Blot or pat brows immediately for the first few hours and throughout the day with a clean dry gauze provided to you in your aftercare kit. Aim for every 5-10 minutes for the first hour and as needed in following hours.

Reapply a THIN layer of aftercare ointment later in the day and before bed with a clean applicator/Q-tip. We apply a layer before you leave from your service, so even with the blotting you do throughout the day, you likely won’t need to reapply ointment until this evening application.


Brow Lamination

Book your next appointment in 8 weeks!

Avoid water to the area for 24 hours. This includes sweat, extreme heat, face-washing, product, etc.

After the first 24 hours, nightly brush through with castor oil.

For the first two weeks, apply at least once per day to ensure the brows stay moisturized. This is important because you want to ensure that the hair follicle doesn’t get too dry after undergoing the chemical process of the lamination. 

Be sure to groom the brows anytime after they’ve gotten wet — re-establish the direction and style that was achieved during lamination. 

Henna Brow Tint

You can expect the henna to stain your skin for up to 2 weeks and your eyebrows for up to 4. Your lifestyle also plays a big part in the longevity i.e. swimming, excessive sweating, using face products on the eye area etc will all result in your henna brows fading faster than usual.

Lash Lift & Tint

WET your lashes for 24 hours after the appointment.

SLEEP with your face laid on the pillow. You must sleep on your back for 24 hours. Your lashes are prone to kinks within 24 hours after the procedure.

PULL your lashes. This can cause your natural lashes to fall out prematurely and cause both breakage and permanent damage to the hair follicle


USE A LASH SERUM. It's recommended to use a lash serum to help your lashes grow longer and strong. This will help give you amazing looking lashes.

MOISTURIZE your lashes. It's recommended to use an oil that is safe to use around the eye area and lashes to help moisturize.


Eyelash Extensions

Your new lashes will last between 2 to 4 weeks depending on your skincare routine and your own natural lash life cycle. To maintain the full look of your lashes, it will require you to maintain refills every 2-3 weeks.
Do not get your lashes wet for at least 24 hours after application.  

Do not go tanning for 24 hours after application. Use an oil-free. eye makeup remover. Try not to run water directly on your lashes

Do not rub, pick or pull your eyes. If using mascara, use water based formulas. When applying mascara avoiding the root area.

Avoid using an eyelash curler

Try to avoid exposure to heat, steam, sauna and friction.

Use Babe Lash Essential Conditioner to strengthen your lashes.

Permanent Eyeliner

Most people don’t experience swelling after the appointment. If there’s swelling, it’s minimal and will go down within 24 hours.

Lip Blush

Day 1: Lips will appear bright and vibrant after treatment, but will likely also feel tight and dry. 

Day 2: As swelling fades, the color will also begin to do so. Lips still feel very dry. 

Days 3-4: Lips will see the formation of scabs, which may also lift or peel. Do not force or rush the process. Let the scab do their own thing.

Days 5-7: Most major peeling should be finished, but a more subtle layer may begin to peel. You’ll begin seeing a new, natural color coming through. 

Days 7-10: While lips are likely still very dry, you’re enjoying that peeling has mostly subsided with the appearance of the new, natural color. 

2-6 WEEKS: As the healing has now completed, lips should be at optimal natural color and feel naturally moisturized. Enjoy!


  • Avoid altering or bothering the healing area. Minimize any touching, peeling, or picking at the skin. This can introduce unnecessary bacteria and cause infection to the healing area, but can also disrupt the pigmentation. 

  • Keep sweat to the minimum, including exercise for 5 days. If that means you must plan to find air conditioned spaces during certain times of the year, please do. 

  • Do not use cleansers, lotions, makeup or cosmetics on the lip area for two weeks. 

  • Skip any other services that would reach the face / lips until lips are completely healed. This means lip fillers, tanning bed (or any prolonged sun exposure), as well as any chemical treatments 

  • For 7 days, no submersion or excess sweat, meaning sauna, steam room, or swimming


While it’s a tricky area to achieve this, keep your lips as clean and dry as possible after the treatment. It’s normal for lymph fluid to appear at the area of treatment. Dab with sterile gauze (provided). If too much lymph, water, or sweat accumulates, scabbing may occur which can cause uneven color.

  • Your technician will offer you specifics, but during the healing process, keep your lips as possible. 

  • If swelling occurs, you can ice, making sure a sterile barrier is in place (gauze is ideal). We are not medical professionals, so while we can’t suggest you take any types of medications, some find the use of anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen. 

  • Avoid eating salty or spicy foods and consider use of a straw to keep food-type foods near the healing area.


DAY 1: erythema, red appearance and severity will depend upon how aggressive the procedure was.

DAY 2: Pink hue may persist and feel like a mild to moderate sunburn. Swelling may occur and be more noticeable on the second day.

DAY 3: Skin can be pink or normal coloring. Swelling and tenderness should start to subside.


  • Apply a hydrating serum (hyaluronic acid, peptide gel, growth factor serum) on all areas being treated. Must apply serum every 4-6 hours for the next 72 hours post treatment to alleviate dryness and tightening. 

  • Apply only a physical defense SPF containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. No chemical SPF for 24 hours after your microneedling. 

  • Gentle cleanser and gentle moisturizer for 3-5 days post treatment.  

  • After 48 hours, you may use your vitamin A products

  • Toners that have an alcohol base should be avoided for 2 weeks post treatment


Microneedling has specific and essential BEFORE care. Please be sure you’ve followed these items immediately below (sent to you in advance of your treatment or at time of booking) before you proceed with treatment . 

  • Discontinue use of Vitamin A (Retin-A) Auto-Immune Therapies and any photosensitizing drugs and topicals 72 hours prior to treatment. This also includes citrus essential oils. 

  • No Accutane 6 months prior to treatment

  • No prolonged sun exposure or sunburn to treatment area 48 hours prior to treatment

  • Skin must be clean and free of cosmetics upon arrival.


General Facials

You will leave your service feeling hydrated and relaxed and your skin will look healthy and glowing. If your appointment is later in the day we typically prepare your skin for night and no cleansing is necessary before bed. If your service is completed early in the day protection products, like an SPF, will be applied and cleansing before bed will be recommended.


Your skin may be sensitive following your wax. Any red bumps or irritation should subside within a few hours. Make sure to avoid sun exposure, tanning, hot baths, hot tubs, heavy lotions and exfoliation for 48 hours after your service.


If you notice bubbles on the area at any time, you may have a bit too much moisture on the site. In order to let the area dry out, stop applying ointments, wash with a gentle soap and water, and let it dry out on its own. Scabs may appear, but assuming you let them or any skin peeling fall off on its own, the ink will heal ok. 

If the ink has not “stuck,” or you feel there’s a touch up needed, please let us know.


You’re most likely going to see some scabbing and peeling. Leave it alone. Let it fall off. As the skin heals, it may itch. It might seem so harmless to just tug that tiny piece off — DON’T. You may remove ink prematurely and damage your design.Yes, keep it clean and moisturized, but don’t go too wild with the moisturizing. Follow the instructions we’ve included and anything additional from your artist. 

Itch relief hack: cover the area with a layer of fabric or a tissue, and lightly slap the area (we know, strange). Instant relief. 


The inked area and surrounding could see a number of signs of irritation: redness, swelling, bruising. Redness would likely fade within a few days, whereas bruising or swelling may persist for up to a week. Your body is just sending energy to the area to heal, so don’t worry. Certain areas will be more sensitive, so just because you are experiencing swelling on your foot but not your arm does not mean that there is anything going on. Of course if you are concerned, trust your gut. Reach out to us with questions but be in touch first to your medical professional if you feel your tattoo is infected. 


If you do nothing else, please consider the following things as non-negotiables for the healing of your new tattoo:

  • Do not allow the area to get wet in shower or bath — 2 weeks. Cover with plastic wrap or saniderm.
  • Do not swim — 3+ weeks, which we consider the healing window
  • Don’t pick! No matter how tempting, other than the natural healing process where some scabbing and flaking may take place, DO NOT scratch, peal, touch, or pick at the area — 3+ weeks until fully healed. 

Obviously our healing process will be unique to your body, but one thing is the same across all bodies: no matter how tough you think you are, your body is likely perceiving this as a wound / traumatic infliction. This is why it matters how you go into and how you leave your appointment, as well as how you tend to yourself afterwards. 

The good news about tiny tats is that because they are smaller, the “open wound” is smaller and less susceptible to infection vs. a large tattoo. That doesn’t mean to ignore it — but it does mean you’re probably going to do great with the process.

If your artist covered the area with a saniderm clear wrap, you can keep it on for a few hours to 2-3 days. Remove the wrap as soon as you notice fluid building. After removing, wash and once dry, either apply new saniderm or follow the steps above.
Congratulations on your new ink! Every artist will have their preferred method, but an easy approach is simply keeping the area clean. To do this:

  • Wash 2x/day using a gentle soap and warm water
  • Use a gauze or paper towel to blot dry the area.
  • 2-3 times a day for 3 to 4 weeks, apply a tiny amount of antibacterial ointment to achieve a thin layer on the area. We suggest Aquaphor. Always make sure hands are also clean when working with the area.

If your artist covered the area with a saniderm clear wrap, you can keep it on for a few hours to 2-3 days. Remove the wrap as soon as you notice fluid building. After removing, wash and once dry, either apply new saniderm or follow the steps above.
