Nanoblading Aftercare


I provide all Nanoblading clients with an aftercare kit that includes healing ointment, as well as a few goodies!

Aftercare Instructions


Day 1:


Clean the treated area every 2 - 3 hours after your appointment. 


To do this, use a slightly damped cotton pad or gauze with distilled water and gently pat the treated area. This is important as it carefully removes any leaking lymphatic fluid from the skin, to prevent unnecessary scabbing and excessive loss of pigment. Do not apply the barrier ointment until the second day.


Day 2 - 14:


Clean the treated area, as explained above, once in the morning and once at night.


Allow the area to air dry completely. Once fully air dried, gently apply a thin layer of the provided aftercare ointment with a clean finger. The tattooed area should appear slightly shiny after the ointment is applied. The amount applied should not exceed the size of a grain of rice.


Do not apply additional ointment due to itchiness as itching is a normal part of the healing process. Over use of the ointment will cause the tattooed hair strokes to blur.

What to avoid during the healing process

Avoid for 14 days:

  • Application of makeup on or near the treated area.

  • Activities that will cause sweating.

  • Direct water on the treated area. Wash around the areas using a cleaning cloth or oil-free makeup wipe.

  • Uses of cleansers, soaps and heavy creams.

  • Vaseline, Neosporin and any other petroleum based products.

  • Swimming pools, hot tubs or other bodies of water.

  • Exposure to the sun and tanning beds. Once completely healed, always apply sunscreen (30 SPF or greater) on the treated area.

  • Laser light therapy, as it can darken/lighten or distort the pigment on the entire face.

  • Massages, facials or skin treatments.


Avoid for 30 days:

  • Exfoliation products, retinol acids or AHA’s on the treated area to avoid premature fading and pigment discolouration.

What to expect during the healing process

Immediately following the procedure, you may experience minor discomfort on the treated area. Symptoms, such as redness, typically subside within 24 to 48 hours.


The tattooed area will appear darker in colour for up to 2 weeks after the treatment, as the initial healing process takes place. The total healing process takes about 6 to 8 weeks, at which time the true colour of the tattoo will become evident.


Due to swelling, the procedure area may appear bolder than the approved design. The swelling will subside in a few days, revealing the original design.


Scabbing, flaking and dryness is to be expected during the healing period. To avoid loss of pigmentation, do not itch or remove the scabs. They will naturally fall off on their own.


What to expect after your tattoo has healed


  • Eyebrow tattoos normally last 1 to 2.5 years depending on lifestyle, skin type and aftercare. 

  • Yearly touch-ups with Lovely Canvas are recommended to maintain your results.

  • Do not laser your brow area (IPL).

  • Additional eyebrow makeup application may still be required post-tattoo to achieve your desired look.

Look after your investment!

Healed results and longevity will vary between each individual client. Even when following the aftercare instructions, fading, blurring and poor retention can happen depending on your skin, body chemistry, sun exposure and lifestyle. 

Each client’s skin responds differently, both in the length of time it takes to heal, colour retention and the number of sessions required to achieve their desired result.


Perfecting appointments are available for clients who may require an additional session to achieve the final result. Perfecting sessions are generally booked 2 - 4 months after the initial



After a permanent makeup procedure, Touchups are required to maintain results. I recommend annual nano fills to maintain the best results for your new brows! This varies between

clients; but is generally required every 1 - 2 years.

I have three available touch-up services for my nanoblading clients. The price for each option varies, and this depends on how much work is required to touch up the treated area.

Here are the available options:


Perfecting Session: $200, only available to clients 2 - 4 months after the initial brow service.


Half - fill: $300, available to clients that have 50% or more of the remaining pigment left in their brows. 


Full - fill: $400, available to clients that have 50% or less of the remaining pigment left in their brows. 

All prices are subject to change based on the amount of work required for the touch-up. Prices are also subject to 5% GST​.
