You have to be off Accutane or any prescribed acne medications for 1 year. No exception!
Do not take Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen or blood thinners, unless medically necessary, 72 hours prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energizing drinks on the day before and of the procedure. This will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure.
If you are used to getting your brows tinted, do at least 1 week prior to the permanent makeup procedure.
Do not tan or sun bathe 30 days before and after the procedure.
If you get your eyebrows waxed, threaded, or tinted, please have this done at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled procedure. It is recommended to wait at least 14 days to have them waxed or threaded & 30 days for tinting after the procedure.
Do not have any chemical peels, microdermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before procedure.
After the Procedure:
Slight redness and/or discomfort may be present for the first two days. This will resolve itself.
Wipe eyebrows with a cotton pad dipped in distilled water as often as possible for the first two days, tap dry and apply a thin layer of Healing Ointment that will be given to you complimentary.
DO NOT apply any other kind of creams, ointments, liquids, cleansers, oils – only the recommended ones.
The day after your procedure, the color will appear darker as it begins healing.
If you strictly follow your aftercare, you should have very minimal flaking. DO NOT pick, scratch, or peel off any skin, as this will pull pigment out.
Once flaking is complete, there will still be a nearly invisible layer of skin that will make your color appear faded. Within the first two weeks after flaking, you will notice some of the color coming back through as the skin continues to repair itself.
Depending on skin type and proper aftercare, it is not unusual to see a few strokes fade or disappear from the skin.
After your 30 day healing period, you can come back at any time to get your touch-up. The touch-up is to go over the strokes again or replace any pigment that may have disappeared. This is why the treatment is a two-step process. We will perfect and ensure the longevity of your procedure with your touch-up.
Some people prefer to do it immediately after the first 30 days. Some do not feel the need to do it until months later. It depends on your healed results and personal preference but 2 months should be the maximum amount of time before your touch up. You do not want them to fade excessively.
Your touch-up will ensure the longevity of your color and hair-strokes.
Even after your brows are completely healed, it is still important to take care of them. Use proper SPF for sun exposure, avoid any harsh chemicals or abrasive treatments to the brow area.
Important Reminders After Treatment:
Use a fresh pillow case, and try not sleep on your face or eyebrows!
Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring and will cause loss of color. Your flakes will gently fall off by themselves when they are ready to!
No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks after treatment
Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for at least one week. You can lightly exercise, but nothing that will cause overexertion or extreme sweating whatsoever. There will be a bigger risk of infection during first 3-4 days.
Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors. And once fully healed, be sure to protect your eyebrows with SPF. Any prolonged sun exposure will cause premature fading.
Avoid taking showers for the first 10 days. And when in the shower, avoid water completely on the eyebrow area.
Avoid swimming, or any kind until your eyebrows have completely healed!
Avoid applying any type of makeup to your brow area. Do not get any concealer, powder or anything on the area for at least 10 days.
Keep your hands off the area. No picking or scratching the treated area.
Smoking WILL cause the pigment to fade prematurely and anesthetics will not last as long.
