(Using the package of After Care Pads)
After procedure, every hour for the first four hours use 1 aftercare pad to thoroughly clean the treated area.
*Goal is to get rid of excess lymph to help speed up healing time!*
Before bed, gently wash brows with clean warm water and gentle cleanser, pat dry with clean tissue, then apply a rice sized dab of cream.
Gently wash brows with warm water and gentle cleanser morning & night. Then apply a rice sized dab of aftercare cream. DO NOT put anything (make-up, lotions, etc.) other than aftercare cream on the brows for 7 days or until fully healed. You can wear makeup as usual, just avoid the brow area.
Enjoy your shower, but try and keep it to a minimum.
Do not use a wash cloth or anything abrasive.
Do not pick or scratch your tattoo.
Avoid hot tubs, steam rooms, pools, lakes/rivers & hot yoga during the healing process.
Avoid direct sunlight & tanning beds.
Avoid brow makeup, brow or lash tints or other facial treatments.
Avoid sweaty exercise for 1 week.
It is very important to remove the lymph fluid from the surface of the skin in order to avoid heavy scabbing. Before bed, if the lips still have some dry lymph, rinse with lukewarm water and gently remove the lymph, pat dry and apply “Aquaphor Healing Ointment.” Sometimes the lips can bruise even after the procedure. Bruising will typically subside within 24 hours.
The lips may be swollen the second day as well. Keep the skin moist at all times with the Aquaphor ointment, do not let them dry out. Continue to apply ointment every 30 minutes throughout the day. Again, do NOT let the lips dry out.
For the first week please avoid:
Just a friendly reminder:
Healing is a process that takes time. Some skin will heal faster than others, some skin will retain pigment longer; everyone is different. Skin, lifestyle, tanning, weather & following aftercare…all these determine your permanent makeup outcome. Brows will get darker and look uneven during the first stage of the healing process. They will shed and lighten 10-30% throughout the following weeks. At the touch-up session we can make slight changes/alterations if needed. Trust the process!
Following the aftercare instructions is a vital part of achieving optimal results!
Neglecting or trying to rush the healing process will result in less than satisfactory results.
Wear a daily sunscreen to prevent the sun from prematurely fading the pigment in the skin.
If a product lightens, brightens or tightens avoid using it on or around your brows indefinitely.
After applying your makeup/foundation take a damp Q-tip and clean off your brows; this allows the pigment to show through without looking muddled by makeup.
I recommend yearly touch-ups to maintain the full color and shape.
