Aftercare

Treatment Steps:

  • Day 1 (day of the procedure): One hour after procedure, gently blot brows with dampened paper towel/washcloth to absorb excess lymph fluids. Gently pat dry and add SMALL amount of balm. Repeat every 2 hours

  • Day 2: Apply a light amount of balm morning, noon and night. Before applying, gently blot with dampened paper towel/washcloth

  • Days 3-5: Leave brows alone, allow them to dry heal

  • Days 6-10: Apply thin layer of balm to brows each morning until all scabs are healed. Before applying, gently blot with dampened paper towel/washcloth

For the first 10 days

  • Keep the brow area as clean as possible to prevent chance of infection

  • Avoid getting brows wet. When showering, try keeping water off your brows. Keep a dry washcloth handy to blot away any soapy water that enters the brows

  • No using exfoliants or chemical peels (Retin-A, glycolic/alpha-hydroxy acids, exfoliating scrubs, etc.) until completely healed

  • No saunas, steamy showers, hot tubs, swimming or direct sunlight

  • No cleansers, cream or makeup

  • Use a clean pillowcase and avoid sleeping on your face, especially the first 2 nights

  • Do not pick, peal or scratch. May cause scarring and/or pigment removal

  • Avoid sweaty workouts for 7 days. Any perspiration in the first 7 days can result in loss of pigment

  • Do not tint, thread, wax or pluck for at least 10 days

  • If you experience an allergic reaction or develop symptoms of infection, contact your health care provider immediately

During the healing process

  • Days 1-4: Brows may be tender and the skin around them may feel tight. Brows may get progressively darker until day 4 as scabs are healing. DO NOT PANIC. Your brows will lighten once the scabs heal.

  • Days 5-12: The scabs will begin to flake, which can look like dandruff and/or dry skin. They will itch as they’re healing. DO NOT pick, peel, scratch or touch the scabbing. New skin is forming over the procedure, making the pigment seem lighter. This is normal.

  • Days 13-21: The pigment will resurface as the skin completely heals and the brows reach their final appearance.

  • 6 to 8 weeks after procedure: Initial Touch-Up appointment is highly recommended. At this time, I will darken any faded areas and fill in any gaps that lightened too much during the healing process.
