Before & After Care Instructions

Before The Treatment:

You have to be off Accutane or any prescribed acne medications for 1 year. NO Exceptions!

Do not take Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen or blood thinners, unless medically necessary, 72 hours prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.

Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energizing drinks on the day before and of the procedure. This will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure.

If you are used to getting your brows tinted, do at least 1 week prior to the permanent makeup procedure.

Do not tan or sunbathe 30 days before and after the procedure.

If you get your eyebrows waxed, threaded, or tinted, please have this done at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled procedure. It is recommended to wait at least 14 days to have them waxed or
threaded & 30 days for tinting after the procedure.

Do not have any chemical peels, microdermabrasion, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before the procedure.

Wash your hair before the procedure.

After Care Instructions

FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTER-CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION.

Cautions: If the skin around the eyebrows breaks out in a heat rash, small pimples, this is usually a reaction to the numbing solution and should go away by itself in a couple weeks, don’t pick. Please call immediately if this occurs so a technician can make note of the reaction and follow up to ensure this is not a more serious situation.

Day of Treatment - First 12 Hours

  • Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb any excess lymph fluid. (lymph is a clear fluid-like substance that might slightly ooze from the eyebrow area.)
  • You may not have any during this time, but if you do, we want to avoid letting it dry on the eyebrow area and forming a crust.
  • Do this every 5 minutes for until all signs of lymph have stopped.
  • Removing this fluid will prevent any hardening/crusting of the lymph.

Days 1-10 / Wash

  • Beginning in the morning of the next day, you will gently wash to remove any bacteria and dead skin.
  • Instructions for washing: once in the morning and once at night only! It is suggested to use a gentle foaming cleanser or antibacterial soap (non-scented). You will do this outside of the shower only!
  • With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Gently rub the area in a smooth motion following hair growth for 10 seconds, then gently rinse with lukewarm water. Make sure that all soap is rinsed away.

PLEASE NOTE: While showering, do not allow the shower head to hit your face as this can cause any scabbing to fall off prematurely and strip the pigment from the skin.

  • Very gently and thoroughly, pat dry.
  • Do not use any other cleansing products containing acids (retinol, glycolic, lactic or aha, anti-aging, anti-acne), or any exfoliants.

Days 1-10 / Moisturize

  • Allow your brows to air dry for at least 5 mins. Brows should be 100% dry prior to this step. Never put your after-care ointment on wet or damp brows.
  • Apply a very small amount of aftercare ointment provided to you and spread it across the treated area.
  • Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay the healing process. The ointment should not leave a noticeable shine or film on the eyebrows.
  • Apply on enough to moisturize only!

Warnings

Do Not use any Retin-A or Glycolic Acids in the brow area during or after healing!

Do Not scrub or pick treated areas!

Do Not expose area to the sun or tanning beds!

Avoid swimming pool for 14 days!

Do Not dye or tweeze eyebrows for one week after the procedure!

Failure to follow post procedure instructions may result in infection or loss/discoloration of pigment.

What is normal?

Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness. Aftercare ointments work well for scabbing and tightness.

Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade, and once any swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If it is too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during the touch-up appointment.

Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals, the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear in places. This can all be addressed during the touch-up appointment which is why touchup is necessary. The procedure area has to heal completely before we can address any concerns. Healing takes about four weeks.

A touchup may be needed 6 months to 1 year after the first touchup procedure depending on your skin, medications, and sun exposure. Your first touch-up is included 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment.

You will need to schedule a touch-up appointment every 6 months to 1 year to keep them looking fresh and beautiful. Future touch-up appointments are not included in the original fee.

If most of the hair strokes have faded, the entire procedure will need to be repeated. An email photo consultation may be necessary to determine if you need a touchup or a repeat of the entire procedure.

  • Use a fresh pillowcase and do not sleep on your face or eyebrows!
  • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring and will cause loss of color. Your flakes will gently fall off by themselves when they are ready to!
  • Facials, Botox, waxing, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4-6 weeks after your treatment.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning for 4-6 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors and once fully healed, be sure to protect your eyebrows with spf. Any prolonged sun exposure will cause premature fading.
  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for at least one week. You can exercise, but nothing that will cause overexertion or extreme sweating whatsoever.
  • Avoid taking long hot showers for the first 10 days and when in the shower avoid water completely on the eyebrow area. You will only be gently washing them in the morning and at night, outside of the shower and without hot water.
  • Avoid swimming, sauna’s, or hot tubs until your eyebrows have healed!
  • Avoid applying any type of makeup to your brow area. Do not get any concealer, powder or anything on the area for at least 2 weeks.
  • Keep your hands off of the area. No picking or scratching the treated area.

Important note about showering

You will want to limit the time you spend in the shower. Avoid using very hot water and creating steam. This will create unwanted moisture on the face.

What to expect after the procedure

  • Slight redness and/or discomfort may be present for the first two days. This will resolve itself. Do not apply any kind of creams, ointments, etc, other than what was provided to you.
  • The day after your procedure, the color will appear darker and sharper as it begins healing. If you follow your after-care, you should have very minimal flaking beginning around the 5th day. Do not pick scratch or peel off any skin as this will pull the pigment out.
  • As your eyebrows heal, you will see the strokes widen and the color will soften.
  • Once flaking is complete, there will still be a nearly invisible layer of skin that will make your color appear faded, missing, or disappeared. Within the first two weeks after flaking, you will notice some of the color coming back through as the skin continues to repair itself.
  • Depending on your skin type and proper aftercare, it is not unusual to see a few strokes fade or disappear from the skin. Remember, you should feel “unfinished” after your first appointment-you are only halfway done. This is why all clients require two sessions, minimum!
  • If the touch-up session was not already scheduled at your first session, then you will need to schedule it online as soon as possible.
  • Your touch-up will ensure the longevity of your color, hair-strokes and/or shading.
