For 7 days following the application of semi- permanent cosmetics:
- Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers, as they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.
- Residual pigment, blood, white blood cells, etc., can arise from the open wound. During the first 24 hours, we ask the client to “wash the skin gently” to remove/prevent build up and dust particles, you should dab this away 3-4 times in the first day.
- You can use cool water with a damp cotton pad to prevent drying out and scabs forming. Don’t panic if dry patches or scabs appear as this can be taken care of in your 4-6 week Touch-Up appointment
- Apply Aquaphor or Aloe Vera gel over your brow area 3-4 times a day for the first few days to avoid scabbing. These oils heal the brow area holistically as well as aid in getting the best results in retaining pigment in the skin.
No make-up, tinting of brows, sun, soap, sauna, steam, exercise, Jacuzzi, swimming in chlorine pools or in the ocean for 7-10 days (until area is completely healed) post procedure and after all touch-ups.
No hot compresses. (i.e. – hot towel)
Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area while it is healing. Pigment may be removed along with 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 brow technician immediately.
If you experience anything out of the ordinary, such as excessive redness, excessive swelling and/or tenderness, please contact your physician.
Clients should follow ALL After-Care Instructions for the best results of their procedure(s).
Remember all procedures must HEAL, PEEL, and FADE! This process may take up to 10 days.
Your brows will look much darker for the first few days as the procedure has blood and lymph in it. After the area peels, the color will be softer.
Do not use ANY products that contain AHA’s, Vitamin A, Retinal A or similar lightening and peeling products on the procedure area. The use of these products may cause your pigment to fade. Be sure to check your product labels before using.
Understand that everyone’s skin is different. Your skin may reject the ink in certain places requiring you to get a touch up after brows have fully healed.
Additional touch ups after initial procedure may be required to fully lock in pigment to certain areas of brows.
Following all these after care instructions will yield in the best results and increase the longevity of the brow pigment.
