AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Proper care following your procedure is important and required to achieve optimum results. After your procedure you WILL be swollen. Some client swell minimally and some will swell more. Everyone heals differently.
This can cause the area(s) 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 anywhere from 10% - 40%. This typically happens with 3-30 days of the first procedure. There WILL be some shedding and/or peeling or scabbing of the skin with some remnants of the color in it as the treated area heals. DO NOT PICK!
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 follow up visit, 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 require 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.
1. Day 1 ONLY - Wash your brows 5 times every 30 mins after your appointment.
2. Day 2 - Finish scabbing - Keep your eyebrows clean and as dry as possible during the healing process (about 14 days).
3. During healing process DO NOT expose your new eyebrows to chemicals, hot tubs, saunas, direct shower spray, hot water, salt water, steam, chlorinated pools, lakes or ponds.
4. ABSOLUTELY NO SUN EXPOSURE or TANNING/TANNING BEDS during healing.
5. NO EXERCISING Do not do any activity that will cause you to sweat until you are done scabbing and peeling.
6. NO Water activities, NO horseback riding, NO camping, Hiking, Biking, Skiing or Snowboarding until you're done scabbing and peeling.
7. Ointment: Only apply a very thin layer of ointment 1-3 times a day by lightly dabbing it on. Do not rub it on. Some itching is normal. DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR SCRATCH the treated area or your color may heal unevenly and you risk scarring and infection.
8. No topical makeup, ointment or serums on eyebrows until you are done scabbing or peeling. You may apply makeup around the new procedure but avoid on healing areas. Topical makeup is bacterial and your new procedure(s) need adequate time to heal to avoid irritation and/or infection.
9. No facials, chemical peels or facial treatments for 2 weeks
10. Do not sleep on your face
11. Call your doctor if you have major complications
