Looking after your new brows is easy! it takes about a week for your new brows to heal.
The Day of the Treatment
Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 15-30 minutes for the rest of the day. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.
WASH & MOISTURIZE
Wash the area GENTLY 3-5 times a day (every 4-6 hours) with lukewarm water and a cotton round. To dry gently pat the area with another clean cotton round. Once the area is dry, apply a rice grain sized amount of aftercare cream supplied to the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The after care cream should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the cream on a wet or damp tattoo.
WHAT NOT TO DO
- STAY AWAY FROM THE SUN for the next 2 DAYS (including day of the procedure).
- You may shower BUT AVOID getting any soaps, shampoos or other cleansers on the treated area for the FIRST WEEK.
- DO NOT pick or scratch at the dry skin/flakiness. Let the skin fall off naturally. Picking can cause scarring and premature loss of pigment.
- DO NOT apply makeup to the tattooed area for the FIRST 2 WEEKS.
- DO NOT bleach, tint or dye for 1 MONTH following the procedure.
- NO chemical peels 60 DAYS after your procedure. No anti-aging products or facial products containing Alpha Hydroxyls (AHAs), Retin-A, Lactic or Glycolic Acids.
- DO NOT thread, wax, or use hair removal products on the treated area while healing.
- NO exercising or sweating for 1 WEEK.
- NO swimming, Sauna / Steam room for 2 WEEKS.
- Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
- Exposure to the sun over time can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment. Once completely healed, you may apply sunscreen on the treated area. Rinse and dry the area thoroughly when in contact with chlorine.
- Glycolic acid, microdermabrasion, and chemical face peel products and treatments must be kept away from the tattooed area as continued use could lighten the pigment.
