AFTERCARE

  • Make sure your hands are washed and sanitized

  • 1st DAY: for the first day gently clean the area using distilled water and cotton pad when you see lymph (body fluid) going out of the brow area. Otherwise, the big scab will form and you will loose a lot of pigment when it is falling down. In the end of the day apply thin layer of provided aftercare ointment.

  • 2nd -10th DAYS: After first day don't use any water but only the provided ointment (THIN LAYER) 2 times in a day (morning and evening) for 10 days until scabs start to fall off. 

  • Each time wash hands before and after application and use a clean cotton to avoid infection. If a crust appears on the pigmented surface do not force the removal by picking, scratching or washing! Pigment may be removed along with the crust!

  • Use a gentle face cleanser but avoid the treatment areas.

  • Shower with your back to the water to avoid water, shampoo and conditioner from getting into the pigmented areas

  • Avoid for 10 days: Soaps; Facial cleansers; Washing pigmented area; Chlorine pools; Retin-A on pigmented areas; Makeup on pigmented area for 10 days, including non-allergenic; Hot, steamy, long showers; Sun on pigmented areas; Jacuzzi or saunas; Gym.

 

Things to Avoid

  • Avoid activities that will cause heavy sweating also try to keep makeup away from the area.

  • Do not use any soaps or face products (especially anything with glycolic acid or retinol) other than your aftercare cream.

  • Always make sure your hands are clean before applying your aftercare cream.

  • You should also use a Q-tip instead of bare fingers to dress your brows.

  • The most important thing to remember is NO WATER on your brows for the first 7 days after your appointment.

  • Take advantage of your favorite bath bombs this week.

  • Instead of ducking around your shower-head, baths are a good option as long as the water isn’t too hot (heavy steam is also a no-no)

  • Avoid spray or bed tanning .

  • If you aren't using sunscreen ( SPF30 and above) in your typical skincare routine, you should be just for the general health of your skin.

  • Sunscreen will help the pigment in your brows last longer.

  • Once you have healed completely, apply a sunscreen to at least your brows (and hopefully your full face) daily.

  • Drinking alcohol can slow down the healing process. We recommend waiting until you have completely healed first.

 

Typical Post-Care Results

The result of the treatment is determined by the following: medication, skin characteristics (dry, oily, sun-damaged, thick or thin skin type), Personal pH balance of your skin, alcohol intake and smoking, post procedure aftercare. Upon completion of the procedure there may be swelling and redness of the skin, which will subside within 1-4 days depending organism. Immediately after the procedure the enhancement can be 30 to 50% darker than the desired result and it can take between 4-10 days to lighten. The true colour will be visible 1 month after each application, and the color may vary according to skin tones, skin type, age and skin conditions. Some skins accept color more readily than others and no guarantee of an exact effect or color can be given.

It is very important to wipe the pigmented area with sterile water, cotton pad and then apply thin layer of ointment on the first day if the lymph appears. The reason is to remove the lymph otherwise your eyebrows will be covered with big scabs. If the client follows the aftercare, she/he will get small scabs – thin layer of crust that will be peeling of itself. It is very important not to scratch eyebrows  (client can feel itching) as you can easily loose the pigment together with scratching. If this happen, mostly there is no pigment left and skin can be white or even reddish because of irritation. The iritation will disappear within a few days. Sometimes the client can see redness the same day after the treatment. This is also normal and it disappears in the next few days.
