Aftercare Procedures

Congratulations, on your new pair of eyebrows!

Healing time and results vary by client due to lifestyle, diet, age, etc. Please follow the instructions below. Failure to do so may result in loss of pigment. It takes a full 4 weeks for the skin to heal. Expect brows to shrink up to 10% and fade up to 50% based on your skin type. Touch-ups are highly recommended for maintenance.

First Day (day-of appointment):

  • You may experience the white halo effect around your eyebrows, do not panic, this is due to the numbing agents used and will subside within the hour or so; any redness or sensitivity will also subside within the hour or so
  • Gently blot the treated areas (or lymph fluids) every 2 hours using a clean cotton round or gauze to prevent extreme scabbing and itchiness, do NOT scrub/pick/rub
  • Avoid direct streams of water such as the showerhead; if itchiness occurs, blot the treated area with a bit of lukewarm water using a clean cotton round or gauze
  • Apply a very thin layer of ointment at night before bed; applying too much will suffocate the treated areas
  • No alcohol after 24 hours of the appointment; alcohol thins out the blood and will cause fading
 

Days 2-14:

  • Using a clean Q-tip, apply ointment morning & night every day until scabbing is gone. If scabbing is present in certain areas, only apply it to that area. Please do NOT overpack the treated areas with ointment, you must allow the skin to breathe.
  • Do not substitute ointment with different products unless otherwise instructed
  • Allow the scabs to fall off naturally, do NOT peel them off
  • You must treat the areas like a wound
 

Things to avoid during the “peeling” period (14 days):

  • Avoid sleeping on your face
  • Avoid long hot showers, baths, and jacuzzis
  • Avoid sun exposure (30 days); the sun kills skin cells which will alter the color of your pigment (be aware when driving, please use visors, hats, etc.)
  • Avoid daily skincare products such as moisturizer on the treated areas
  • Keep your hair out of treated areas
  • No facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or toners (30 days)
  • No Retin-A or chemical exfoliants/acids such as glycolic, lactic, or AHA (30 days)
  • No tanning, waxing, face massages, lash extensions, hot yoga, saunas, exercise/gym, swimming, or sweating until scabbing is gone (warm skin = open pores = produces salt = salt + pigment = extreme scabbing = pigment fading)
  • No makeup on the treated areas; makeup can cause infection
  • No botox/fillers or laser treatments (30 days)
  • Avoid scrubbing/picking, let the dry skin flake off naturally. Pulling pre-mature scabs will lift the pigment and will not meet your expected results. Your skin will appear irritated, red/raw, with no pigment.
  • If extreme itchiness occurs, use Bactine (antiseptic) to avoid itching, dab a small amount on with a Q-tip.
  • Desired results might lead to a second session in order to complete the brows, especially if you have oily skin and/or have a previous tattoo then you will more than likely require a touch-up.
 

Tips on showering:

  • Do not get the treated areas wet; avoid direct streams of water
  • Limit hot water and steam by keeping your showers to 5 minutes
  • If water happens to get on the treated areas, pat to dry, do NOT scrub/rub or pick scabs
  • Wash your face in the sink first (avoiding the treated areas), then once in the shower wash your hair by lifting your chin up and facing away from the showerhead (avoiding the face), and lastly wash your body
 

After 3-4 weeks:

  • Book your 6-8 weeks touch-up, this is highly recommended to boost color and retention. This varies by the client’s desired results.
  • Continue your regular daily routine and enjoy waking up to your new brows! <3
 

Tattoo Removal Aftercare:

  • KEEP AREA CLEAN and open to the air. Do not cover with a Band-Aid or anything else. Air/oxygen provides good and faster healing. Do not touch the area at all, but if you find yourself needing to, please make sure your hands are clean.
  • DO NOT SOAK the treated area in water. You can shower as normal, but keep the area out of direct streams from the showerhead the best you can, and do not let the area remain wet for more than a few minutes.
  • NO BATHING, SWIMMING, SAUNAS, HOT TUBS, TANNING, OR INTENSE EXERCISE.
  • DO NOT disrupt the scabbing process (i.e. no picking, scratching, etc.) All scabbing needs to fall off naturally. If you force or pick a scab off you will disrupt the process and possibly cause scarring.
  • TREAT AREA WITH TLC. DO NOT DO ANYTHING AT ALL THAT COULD CAUSE ISSUES OR PROBLEMS TO THE TREATED AREA. 
  • ONCE ALL SCABBING HAS NATURALLY FALLEN OFF, apply a thin layer of ointment (provided) morning and night for a minimum of 4 weeks, or until the next lightening session. DO NOT start applying the ointment UNTIL all scabbing has completely fallen off. It is our goal to keep the area as dry as possible until all scabs have naturally fallen off.

    It is important to the process and integrity of the skin that 6 full weeks of healing take place before another lightening session can be done. No exceptions.
