AFTERCARE | HEALING PHASES
It is important for the client to be fully prepared for the healing process. Although every person experiences a slightly different healing process, these stages are what you should expect.
It is extremely important that you follow the aftercare instructions that will be given to you by the Artist. Failing to do so can lead to infection or poor color retention; including patchiness, lines that are blurred instead of crisp, and healing grey. This is your responsibility so please take it seriously.
There are services, supplements and lifestyle habits that need to be avoided both before and after your procedure. Please click the service below to know how to prepare for your appointment and for your after care instructions.
CLIENTS WITH NORMAL OR DRY SKIN TYPES
Clients with slightly to extremely oily skin types
*The first 2 days the eyebrow area will ooze lymph. It is important to blot this with a clean tissue every hour. If this fluid is not removed, it will dry and contribute to scabbing over the eyebrow area which can pull out the pigment. If you are blotting and you find that the lymph has dried, you can use a slightly damp cotton ball to blot the area.
*Apply antibacterial at night only, for 2 days.
*Avoid exposure to water on your brows for 3 days.
*Avoid vigorous activity or aerobic exercise for 10 days.
*Do not shower facing shower head, exposing the brows to direct water pressure for 10 days. Also avoid long, steamy showers for these 10 days.
*No sun exposure or tanning beds for 14 days.
*You can ice the area to reduce swelling, but limit this exposure to 10 minutes every hour. Longer exposure can leech out pigment.
*Once you resume wearing makeup (no less than 10 days after procedure), use new makeup only near the treated area.
*Do not pick or peel any scabs that may form.
*Do not use alpha-hydroxy acids, retinals, hydrocortisone cream, benzyl peroxide or other active ingredients for 14 days.
*Do not resume any form of hair removal for at least 14 days.
*Avoid blood donation for one year after procedure.
*In the event that you may need an MRI, inform the MRI technician that you have permanent makeup. A cold compress can prevent a stinging sensation caused by magnets attracting the oxide within the pigment of your brows.
*Once the treated area is completely healed (3-4 weeks) your brows will be very low maintenance. You can resume all normal activity. It is advised to wear sunscreen or a hat to avoid direct sun exposure on the pigmented area since this can cause fading.
