Aftercare After Semi-Permanent Makeup (SPMU) Treatment!

Top 5 Tips for Aftercare After Semi-Permanent Eyebrow Treatment here at Lip Couture

Semi-permanent makeup eyebrows treatments, such as microblading or eyebrow tattooing, have gained immense popularity in recent years. These treatments offer a long-lasting solution for achieving beautifully shaped and defined eyebrows. However, to ensure the best possible results and minimize any potential complications, proper aftercare is essential. In this blog post, we will discuss the top five tips for aftercare following a semi-permanent eyebrow treatment here at Lip Couture.

Tip #1 - Follow the Aftercare Instructions:

After your semi-permanent eyebrow treatment, Nicole will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions. It is crucial to follow these instructions carefully, as they are tailored to your specific treatment. Typically, they will include advice on cleaning, moisturising, and avoiding certain activities or products. Adhering to these guidelines will promote proper healing and enhance the longevity of your eyebrow treatment.

Tip #2 - Keep the Treated Area Clean:

Proper hygiene is vital during the healing process. Gently clean the treated area twice a day using a mild, fragrance-free cleanser or the specifically recommended aftercare product. Use a clean cotton pad or swab to apply the cleanser, being careful not to rub or scrub the treated area. Gently pat it dry with a clean tissue or soft cloth. Avoid exposing your eyebrows to excessive moisture, such as swimming or sauna, during the initial healing period.

Tip #3 - Avoid Touching, Picking, or Scratching:

Resist the temptation to touch, pick, or scratch your eyebrows, even if they feel itchy or slightly uncomfortable during the healing process. Touching the treated area with dirty hands can introduce bacteria, potentially leading to infections or other complications. It is crucial to allow the scabs to naturally shed on their own to avoid any disruption in the healing process. If you experience any severe discomfort or notice signs of infection, consult your technician or a healthcare professional promptly.

Tip #4 - Protect Your Eyebrows from Sun Exposure:

Sun exposure can cause the pigment in your eyebrows to fade prematurely. Protect your newly treated eyebrows from the sun's harmful UV rays by wearing a wide-brimmed hat or using physical sunscreen with a high SPF. Apply the sunscreen gently and avoid direct contact with the treated area. Additionally, refrain from using tanning beds or excessive heat, such as saunas or steam rooms, as they can also affect the color retention of your eyebrows.

Tip #5 - Avoid Certain Products and Treatments:

During the healing process, it is important to avoid certain products and treatments that may interfere with pigment retention or cause irritation. These include makeup, facial cleansers, exfoliators, and creams containing retinol, glycolic acid, or other chemical exfoliants. Additionally, avoid using waterproof or oil-based makeup around the eyebrow area, as they can dissolve the pigment. It's best to consult your technician for specific recommendations on the products you can safely use on your eyebrows post-treatment.


Proper aftercare is crucial to ensure the best possible results and longevity of your semi-permanent (SPMU) eyebrow treatment. By following these top five tips, including adhering to aftercare instructions, maintaining good hygiene, avoiding touching or picking, protecting from sun exposure, and avoiding certain products and treatments, you can help your eyebrows heal effectively and enjoy beautiful, long-lasting results. Remember to consult with Nicole if you have any concerns or questions during your treatment or after here at Lip Couture.
