Eyebrow Care Before Treatment
- If you use Retinols please ease off around the eyebrow area several days before treatment.
- No Botox, chemical peels or laser work 2-4 weeks before or after
- Cannot be pregnant or nursing
- Do not work out the day of the procedure.
- Do not tan or come with a sunburned face.
- No Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.
- No waxing or tinting 3 days before.
- You may be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
No water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days. This includes avoiding direct shower water.
4-5 hours after procedure, clean the area with sterile water and a cotton pad, gauze or q-tip and allow to air dry.
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let scabs or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after procedure.
Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days.
No facials, Botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
Some residual swelling is normal for all procedures. The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red & irritated. This is all normal. Do NOT pick! These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis. Color will fade/soften anywhere from 40% to 50%. At the touch up we will fine tune any area that has faded too much. Healing is specific to each client. Some will develop dry patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first treatment. Remember that this is a 2 step procedure and your brows will be completed after the second treatment. It is important to realize that you will need a color touch-up every 1-2 yrs to maintain it's fresh natural appearance. Fading will happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your body's healing process. You may need to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows, not a permanent one.
Please note that eyebrows will appear darker and bolder due to natural scabbing and healing for the first 10 days. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures.
Permanent Makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who are or have:
Pregnant or nursing
Diabetic (consult your Dr.)
Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your Dr.)
Viral infections and/or diseases
Had an Organ transplant
Skin irritations or psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc)
Sick (cold, flu, etc)
Had Botox in the past 2 months
Used Accutane in the past year.
Have very large pores or extremely oily skin, the result will be softer/solid or powdered looking.
History of Keloids or Hypertrophic scarring
If you get chemical peels frequently, the brows will fade faster due to Retinols/Retin-A's. Anti-aging creams or serums containing acids will fade your permanent makeup prematurely even after it has healed.
Smoking can cause the pigment to fade prematurely and anesthetics will not last as long.
Laser removal of the eyebrows or old PMU can cause more scar tissue. This can cause the pigment to fade prematurely or look blurry. There is also a chance that the pigment won't take at all. An appointment is required to determine if you are a good candidate and upon reviewing your pictures after the removal process is complete.
NOTE: If you are required to be on antibiotics prior to the procedure please bring a doctor's note.
Please remember to avoid putting anything on the treated area: no hot water, no makeup, lotions, pencil....etc. for 10-14 days. Avoid scrubbing or exfoliating the treated area for at least 1 month.
