Aftercare Procedures


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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.


You may experience slight discomfort or irritation immediately after your procedure, but it will subside within the next couple of days as you heal. You will not be able to wash your hair for 48 hours so it may look a little greasy.

  • The strokes will look darker and more defined for the first 7-10 days.
  • It will get lighter at the end of the week as your hairline heals and scabs (if any) fall off.
  • In 4-7 days the lines start to shrink depending on the person and their skin type.
  • Maintenance and longevity will depend on your particular lifestyle, routine, and skin type. For someone that washes their hair every day versus someone who only washes their hair twice a week, the person that washes their hair every day will experience fading quicker. Sweat is also a major factor in fading since salt is present in our sweat even if we do not perspire which aids in fading.


First 48 Hours:

  • Avoid getting water on the area for the first 48 hours following the procedure.
  • Allow the scabs to fall off naturally, do NOT peel them off
  • You must treat the areas like a wound


Days 3-10:

  • After 48 hours, you may lightly rinse your hair with water only and you should NOT use soap, shampoo, or any products while washing your hair or hairline area (including skincare) 
  • Keep your showers short with lukewarm or cool water (no steam)
  • If persistent itching occurs, you may apply a grain-sized amount of the given ointment to the area using a clean Q-tip


Things to avoid during the “peeling” period (10 days):

  • avoid sleeping on or around your face/hairline
  • no chemical products including but not limited to soap, shampoo, gel, hairspray, makeup, etc.
  • no swimming, sauna/direct steaming, and ANY sweating during this period to prevent possible infections 
  • no direct sun and heavy sweating/perspiring activities 
  • no hats, headbands, headscarves, etc. 
  • no makeup or skincare on or around the procedural area to prevent possible infections 
  • For longer-lasting results: Look for gentle shampoos without parabens and sulfates and wash your hair less frequently. 
  • Contact your doctor if you notice any signs of infection. Please consult with your doctor/ health care provider/dermatologist before any procedures if you have any underlying conditions. 


If you would like to dye your hair or receive chemical hair treatments/services, you must wait 1 week before your appointment as your scalp can become more sensitive due to the chemicals. If you have already dyed your hair, we recommended waiting 2 weeks post-procedure.
