It is critical to follow all preparation and aftercare instructions for your initial appointment in order to achieve optimal results. Please read carefully prior to your appointment to arrange your schedule accordingly.
Note: For the most flattering result let your eyebrows grow out as much as possible without waxing, tweezing, or treading your brows.
4 WEEKS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
Do not take or get any chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, vitamin E, retinol, or fish oil at least 4 weeks before your appointment.
48 HOURS BEFORE
No coffee or other stimulants (caffeine, pre-workouts etc)
No aspirin, Ibuprofen, fish oil, Vitamin E (unless medically necessary()
No Alcohol or other blood thinners
No Retin A skincare products
Stop any blood thinning medications (if possible) or supplements like fish oils a few days prior
DAY OF APPOINTMENT
Avoid exercising the day of the appointment
Your brows will gradually get darker. As they get darker, the scabs will form and as the scabs form they will also begin to look thicker. The scabs will fall off in different areas at different times and during the scabbing/peeling process your eyebrows will be really patchy and uneven. The pigment underneath the scab when it falls off will be very light. Almost like the pigment came off with the scab, but as long as the scab/peeling was not forced off the color will come back when you're fully healed.
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.
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 on a thin layer. Do not rub it on.
- DO NOT TOUCH your brows with dirty hands. Do not pick, peel, rub or scratch off the scabs. Let the scabs fall off naturally. Picking can cause scarring, loss of pigment or infection.
- Do not sleep on your face to prevent scabs from lifting prematurely. Use a new/freshly washed pillow case to avoid infection.
- Do not use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
- No direct sunlight/tanning booths.
- Avoid saunas, pools, steam rooms or hot tub.
- Avoid facials, chemical treatments, and Botox until 4 weeks past procedure.
- Avoid long term sun exposure or UV rays/tanning beds. This can alter how the color heals.
- No sweating. This can cause pigment to be pushed out. If you sweat a little bit immediately dab with a clean new paper towel.
- No makeup, moisturizers, serums, oils etc, or other products to touch the treated area until you're done scabbing.
AFTER SCABBING PROCESS
- You can return to your normal face washing and makeup routine.
- Note: After the scabs come off your eyebrows will be very light. You can now apply makeup until the color comes back
- Once you're 6 weeks healed you'll be able to see the true result and at this time you can book your touchup.
- Once healed your brows will be softer and not as crisp.
- The results vary with each individual and are extremely dependent on your skin and how you care for it during the healing process. It may take more than one session to achieve your desired result.
Inform your technician of your permanent make up at the time of any laser procedures or MRIs.
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
It is strongly recommend that you do not use any of the following on your tattoo: Benzoyl Peroxide, Hydrogen Peroxide, Glycolic acid, Apple cider vinegar, Vitamin E and C, and Retinol. these products can lighten or fade your tattoo faster.
Wear sunscreen - UV rays will deteriorate, lighten and fade the pigment faster.
Treatment does fade after 1-3 years depending on your skin and lifestyle. Touch-ups are necessary to maintain the longevity and overall beauty of your pigment.
If you have oily skin, an iron deficiency, or a very strong immune system, your pigment will not last as long and will not heal as crisp as others.
ONCE YOU'RE 6 WEEKS HEALED YOU CAN SCHEDULE YOUR TOUCH-UP APPOINTMENT ($100+)
Touch-ups are not required. At 4-6 weeks healed you'll be able to see the true shape, size and color of your brows. You can book one as soon as you're ready for a touch-up. If you decide you want a touch up, at your touch-up we'll be able to make them darker, thicker, or even make small adjustments to the shape. Or, we can just touch up spots that healed lighter than others.
Touch ups can be scheduled once you are 6 weeks healed ($100+).
