AFTER-CARE

EYEBROW MICROPIGMENTATION POST-PROCEDURE CARE

What to Expect after the procedure

 

Immediately after treatment, the color will appear darker but will eventually get light over the next few days. This is because the pigment takes around seven days to enter the deeper layers of the skin. After 7-10 days, exfoliation takes place. The top layer of the skin peels off, leaving a softer, lighter color below. The result is a natural looking brow enhancement. As the treated area is settling down, itching may occur. This is a good sign as it means the skin is healing.

 

Eyebrow After-Care

 

We aim for perfection but everyone’s skin is different and will react differently to the procedure. Some skin will heal faster than others and some will retain the pigment longer. All skin is aging so some of us will be harder on our skin than others; swimming, tanning and weather all have a negative effect on your skin. Please keep in mind that nobody’s skin & eyebrows are exactly the same. Our goal is to make them match as closely as possible but nature does play a role in the contour of your brows.

 

  • Do Not get the brows wet during the healing process for 14 days.

  • Do Not put anything (water, make-up, lotions etc.) on the brows for 14 days.

  • Do Not sweat for 14 days - this is a hard one, but body heat expands the pores. Sweat has salt and will prematurely fade, blur or cause the pigment not to take at all.

  • Apply a Aquaphor to the brows once day for about a week. After a shower, gently take a dry cotton ball and gently dab till dry. Remember to always be gentle. You do not want the scabs to come off prematurely.

  • Do Not scrub, rub, or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off on its own. If it is removed before it is ready, the pigment underneath it can be pulled out.

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

  • Do Not use a tanning bed for a month ... preferably, never!

  • It is recommended that you apply Aquaphor to treated areas prior to swimming even after healed to prevent the chlorine water/salt water from penetrating the area.

  • Only touch the treated areas with squeaky-clean hands during the healing process.

  • Try not to sleep on your face for the first 10 days.

 

We want you to be thrilled with the results for the months ahead, so follow the instructions! FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTER-CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY 

RESULT IN INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION. 

 

Important Notes

  • After the initial 14 days the color will fade and begin to appear more natural. 

  • Typically healing should take up to about 14 days, though this can vary case by case due to the fact that some may take longer due to stress, a poor diet, or their immune system is compromised. 

  • The initial application is always applied conservatively because every person's skin is different and the final color can only be precisely   determined and adjusted during a follow-up appointment after the initial application has fully healed. In order to ensure the best result we       provide the second touch up to get the desired result.

 

We recommend yearly touch-ups.
