Instructions & Aftercare
What are my pre-procedure instructions?
We require our clients to avoid caffeine, alcohol, Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, Vitamin E and omega supplements 24 HOURS PRIOR to your appointment.
To prevent poor ink retention, excessive bleeding and pain we strongly advise our clients to follow the instructions. If you're unable to do so on the day of your procedure, your appointment will be rescheduled.
What is the aftercare?
To prolong results as much as possible, aftercare is highly recommended!
Please follow aftercare instructions morning and night till your brows are healed and sealed.
1. For the first two days after your procedure, use a clean Q-tip and run under warm water. Drag lightly across your brows to remove lymph (once each brow). Lymph is a clear/oily-like substance your body naturally secretes that produces scabs. With removing the lymph, it decreases scabbing and increases retention!
2. Day 3-10 Avoid ALL direct water contact with your brows. Do not pick, pull or scratch scabs, as we want this these to remain where they are as long as possible (if these scabs fall off prematurely, this area may look lighter).
Avoid swimming, hot tubs, steam rooms, intense exercise, applying make up (directly on brows) for 1 week.
Avoid direct natural sun and artificial tanning beds for 4 weeks.
After 7 days you can return back to regular skin care and make up routine.
Your eyebrows will appear bolder after application and will fade between 20%-40% within the first week. This is why aftercare is so important, better care means a better result!
What to expect?
You will experience a few minor side effects such as peeling, flaking, redness and itching. This is apart of the healing process, so not to worry!
When do I book my touch up?
Touch ups are advised to book in 4-6 week, as it is a 2 appointment process. This is where we perfect the final touches to have your brows looking amazing! It is also recommended to come for an colour refresh in 12-18 months time.
