PRE / POST CARE

In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow all pre and post care instructions. 

Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following:

Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. 

 

Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone.

No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior.

If you generally have your brows threaded/waxed, please do so at least 72 hours prior. (It is recommended, as you will not be able to have done until the brows are fully healed)

Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. 

 

We will work together to create the perfect brows!

 

 

 

For the first 2 weeks following the application of semi-permanent cosmetics, all of these “Do’s and Do Nots” Apply.

 

  • During the first 48 hours, Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers, do not let your hair touch row area, your sunglasses, do not let anything touch your brows. They may have bacteria on them and could cause infection

 

  • It’s very important that you DO NOT do anything to the eyebrows or brow area. Leave them completely alone to allow the wound to close and heal properly.

 

  • You will experience some dryness and scabbing which are both normal and part of the healing process. Scabbing generally lasts approx. 14 days, however the scabbing can take longer, it depends on your skin. Please keep in mind that although all the scabs may have fallen off, the brows are still in their healing period for the next 4-6 weeks and no touch up work can be done before this healing period.

 

  • During the scabbing period (2 weeks) DO NOT get your brows wet. If rinsing hair and water bounces on brow area, pat dry immediately with a towel. When washing face, use wash cloth and wash around the brows.

 

  • No makeup on the brows, tinting of lashes, sun, soap, sauna, steam, exercise, jacuzzi, swimming in chlorine pools or in the ocean until the area is completely healed including post procedure and any/all touchups.

 

  • Please limit your activity with children, pets, gardening, cars, or anything that can ultimately be harmful to your eyebrow area.

 

  • No hot compress or ice

 

  • No not rub or traumatize the procedure area while it is healing, pigment may be removed along with the crusting tissue.

 

  • Use a sunblock after the procedure area has healed to prevent future fading of pigment color.

 

  • If you have any questions or concerns, please notify your technician immediately

 

  • If you experience anything out of the ordinary such as redness, swelling, itching, pain, burning, bleeding, puss, bumps or any signs of an infection, please notify your physician immediately.

 

  • Clients need to follow ALL aftercare instructions for best results of their procedure

 

  • Clients color will look much darker for the first 10-14 days, after the brows peel, the color will be softer

 

  • Remember all procedures must HEAL, PEEL and FADE. This process may take up to 4 weeks

 

  • Once scabs have fallen off completely, strokes may appear faint.. this is totally normal. They will slowly start to appear through the skin once completely skin has completely healed, 

 

  • Do not use any products that contain AHA’s, VIT A, Retinol A or similar lightening and peeling products on the brow area. (Example: Glycolic, Lactic Acids, check your product labeling) It will fade the pigment color.

 

  • Understand that everyones skin is completely different. Your skin may reject the ink in certain places requiring you to schedule a touch up appointment after brows have fully healed. Additional touchups may be required to fully lock in pigment to certain areas of the eyebrows.

 

  • Following these aftercare instructions will yield the best results possible and increase the longevity of the pigment.
