Recently some people have contacted me with questions about the relationship between pigment fixation and care after the permanent makeup or microblading procedure, so I decided to share this information with you.
Several factors affect the fixation of the Softap pigment, including the skin type of your client, their immune system response, the number of passes you do during the procedure, and the technique you perform. Still, it is also imperative that the person follows the post-procedure instructions since this directly affects color retention and, of course, the final result.


1. Do not take aspirin before a Microblading or Permanent Cosmetic procedure.
2. You may take Tylenol or other non-aspirin pain relievers 1 hour before the procedure.



●If you have any inflammation, we recommend applying cold (ice packs) for 5 - 10 minutes every hour for the first three hours after the procedure. Ice is used to minimize swelling and provide comfort.

 ● Do not take aspirin, as this promotes bleeding at the treatment sites. The use of over-the-counter medication is recommended for the temporary relief of pain.

● Apply RecoverAll over the treatment area 2-3 times per day during the following week or when the area feels dry. Maintaining the hydrated area is essential for color retention, but avoid over-hydration.

 ● Do not remove any scabs or dry areas that may form during the healing process; this may cause you to lose color or damage your skin .

 ● Do not use facial creams, exfoliants, or strong cleansers around your eyebrows during the healing process.

 ● You can clean the area with clean cotton with warm water. If water falls directly on your treated area, pad dry and don't rub.

 ● Avoid direct sun exposure during the first two weeks and use sunscreen.

 ● You should not smoke or be exposed to cigarette smoke for the first 48 hours as the tone of the makeup may change.

 ● You should avoid contact with chlorinated water (pool) during the first two weeks. Decrease regular work during the first 24 hours.

 ● Do not exercise such as aerobics, dancing, or lifting weights for at least three days after the procedure.

 ● The color will become dark immediately and be like that for the next 3-4 days, don't be alarmed; this dark color will fall off or gradually return to the color that was implanted. In some skin types, some pigment clearance may occur; therefore, if this happens, do NOT be alarmed either, this may be normal, and there will be pigment in the skin a month after the procedure. If no pigment is left one month after the procedure, it will be necessary to put it back.

 ● You will see the final result a month later. If at that moment you notice that you need some retouching, it is time to do it, and I will be happy to assist you. If you do not contact me during the month following the procedure, I will understand that you are satisfied with the result and that the work is finished.


Therefore, give them the instructions in the attached format and confirm that they understand each step. Also, call them the next day for a follow-up. It gives confidence to your clients and reaffirms your commitment to a good result. I assure you that this call can avoid future claims.
