AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Proper care following your procedure is important and required to achieve optimum results.
1. DAY 1 ONLY
· Gently wash your brows every 30 mins, for a total of 5 times with plain warm water. Let your brows air dry.
· Wash brows with clean hands.
2. DAY 2 UNTIL YOU'RE DONE SCABBING
· Keep your brows as dry as possible.
You can wash your face (do not soak your eye brows) and take showers (do not stand directly under the stream of water). If water sprinkles on your brows let them air dry.
· Ointment: If you feel really dry and itchy, apply a very small amount of ointment 1- 2 times a day by lightly dabbing it on. Do not rub it on.
· DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR SCRATCH. If you do, your color may heal unevenly and you risk scarring and infection. Some itching is normal.
· No makeup, moisturizers, cleansers, other ointments or serums on eyebrows until you are done scabbing/peeling.
You may apply makeup around your brows.
Topical makeup is bacterial and your brows need adequate time to heal to avoid irritation and/or infection.
· No facials, chemical peels or facial treatments.
· No exercising. Do not do any activities that will cause you to sweat until you are done scabbing/peeling.
· Do not sleep on your face.
DURING THE WHOLE HEALING PROCESS (6 WEEKS)
· No sun exposure or tanning during healing. After scabbing/peeling be sure to put on sunscreen if you will be in the sun for longer periods.
· Call your doctor if you have major complications
After your procedure you will be swollen. This can cause the area to appear un-even, red, itchy and irritated while healing. The area will also appear much darker and thicker than the final result. It’s not uncommon for the procedure area to shrink and lighten anywhere from 10% - 40%.
Some areas of the procedure may fade more than others and as the pigment oxidizes it will start to darken up again over 2-4 weeks. This is 100% normal and expected.
After the touch up, the body is used to the pigment and will retain much better and won’t fade as much as the initial procedure.
All permanent makeup requires 2 or more procedures and maintenance “color boosts” to keep the procedure looking its best. Your skin type, lifestyle and aftercare will play a major roll on the final result.
Touch ups can be scheduled once you are 6 weeks healed ($100+).
