3D SCULPT PREP AND POST CARE

3D SCULPT | microblading post care

Post care is key in the longevity of your 3D SCULPT.

During this procedure also known as microblading, we use a fine sharp blade to make incisions into the skin in order to insert pigment. Because of this, your skin experiences a bit of trauma, which is why preparation and post care play such an important role.

Taking necessary precautions prior to treatment will ensure that your treatment can be performed safely and effectively. Please review Pre-Treatment guidelines.

After your 3D SCULPT , your POST CARE washing and moisturizing instructions using your kit are as follows:
  • Gently cleanse lower half and forehead with your cleanser in the morning. When rinsing cleanser away, use a warm face cloth avoiding drip from forehead onto brows.
  • Dampen a clean gauze or cotton pad with the cleanser and gently wipe brows in outward motion. Blot dry with dry gauze/pad.
  • Once your brows begin scab or flake, apply a small amount of the moisturizer over the brows after washing in the morning and evening.
  • During your recovery, your brows may feel a bit itchy. Applying a cooling mask such as the Cucumber Recovery Mask reduces irritation.
  • You can apply a serum to excelarate the healing process and promote healthy cell regeneration in the recovering area.

3D SCULPT POST-TREATMENT GUIDE

So you recently achieved the brows you have always dreamed of with the 3D SCULPT, dérmica’s eyebrow feathering treatment…

Now that your brows have been skillfully etched into shape with dérmica’s top-of-the-line eyebrow feathering products and techniques, you will need to follow post-care instructions.

The following guide will help you care for your fresh brows and ensure you achieve best results. Your brows may feel sore and bruised immediately following your eyebrow feathering procedure; this usually dissipates within 12 hours.

Follow the POST-TREATMENT GUIDE until your brows have completely flaked and healed. The healing process can take up to 10 days and varies with each individual.

POST-TREATMENT GUIDE

  1. Hot temperatures will irritate your brows during the first 12 hours, therefore remain indoors and fan if necessary.

  2. DO NOT touch brow with unwashed hands, doing so can cause infection.

  3. DO NOT soak brows. Showers and baths are safe; keep your brows away from direct water contact as this may cause color to fade.

  4. Face washing and moisturizing instructions:
  • Gently cleanse lower half and forehead with your daily cleanser in the morning. When rinsing cleanser away, use a warm face cloth avoiding drip from forehead onto brows.
  • Dampen a clean gauze or cotton pad with the cleanser and gently wipe brows in outward motion. Blot dry with dry gauze/pad.
  • Once your brows begin scab or flake, apply a small amount of the moisturizer over the brows after washing in the morning and evening.

5. DO NOT use ANY makeup or SPF directly over the brow area until brows have completely healed. This may alter color tone or blur strokes.

6. AVOID direct sunlight, this can cause the pigment to fade and irritate the skin.

7. DO NOT pick or lift scabs or flakes from brows, this may pull the pigment prematurely causing fading or gaps in strokes.

8. Brow can be lightly tweezed around area treated but not directly over for 3 weeks. Waxing procedure can be performed 4 weeks following procedure.

Chemical Peels- Lightening

Lightening Peel

Our peels have been designed to safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from various natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.

LIGHTENING PEEL
Description: Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell turnover rate. Because of their molecular structure, these acids are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.
The acids we use in our professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin.
This acid peel solution provides intense exfoliation for problematic, oily, aging, sun damaged and hyper pigmented skin. It contains 35% glycolic and 35% lactic acid.

Pre-treatment protocols:
  • Must not currently be on or have used Accutane or any other oral prescription acne medications in the past 12 months
  • If currently using any products containing AHA/BHA/Retin A/Vitamin A on the area being treated, you must discontinue usage 2 weeks prior to procedure
  • Must wait a minimum of 1 week from last tanning session.
  • NOTE: To be eligible for this treatment your skin must be pretreated with AHA or BHA (e.g. Enzyme Peel or pretreated with home care)


Time frame: 15-30 minutes

Recommended sessions: 4-8

Downtime required: 1-7 days

Contraindications:
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin cancer (remission under 2 years)
  • Use of photosensitive medication and herbs
  • Active infection of Herpes Simplex in treatment area
  • Active skin infection
