PRECISION EYEBROWS AFTERCARE
Careful aftercare is very important for producing a beautiful and lasting result.
MAKE SURE TO WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE FOLLOWING ALL AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS.
During the first 2 days your pigment will darken and scabbing will begin to occur. DO NOT PANIC - THEY WILL DRAMATICALLY LIGHTEN AT LEAST 30-40% WHEN THEY ARE COMPLETELY HEALED.
DO NOT TOUCH or get the treated area wet during the first 7-10 days of the healing process.
You can apply (with clean hands) a very light layer of Vaseline or a natural oil AFTER day 3 and ABOVE the treated area only.
Applying this light layer right above the treated area can help hydrate the area enough from feeling dry, tight or itchy and avoid having to touch the area while the scabs are very delicate.
Please avoid these at all costs; Water, Steam and Humidity!
While showering, washing your face/hair, or even while enduring humid weather:
-Use our supplied visor to avoid water from penetrating the treated area while showering. You can reuse each visor at least 2 times. Do not get the adhesive area wet.
-Face away from the shower head and do not use hot water to eliminate steam from filling up the bathroom.
-Wear a hat or stay in the shade to avoid sun exposure and do not stay outside for prolonged periods of time to avoid sweating during hot/humid days.
Do not work out for at least 7 days! Sweating and high body temperatures can push the ink out of your tattoo.
Do not use any makeup on the brows for at least 2 weeks!
Following this protocol will ensure the formation of scabs
thus more better color retention.
Scabs will begin to flake off naturally between day 4-7
see example below;
After day 7, if you have normal to dry skin and after day 10, if you have oily skin, you can begin to wet the treated area and resume all normal activities but, still DO NOT rub or scrub at the treated area, any remaining scabs must fall off naturally. Allowing them to get wet will help speed up this part of the process.
Liquid hydration is very important after day 10 so, do not hesitate to wet them. Make sure to lightly splash the brows with water and let water fall down onto them gently in the shower.
Keep your face out of the sun for 14 days. Sunscreen with a high SPF can be applied after 2 weeks.
Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it is ready the pigment underneath it can be pulled out.
After the first week you can use a plain lotion, or any natural oil directly on the treated areas. No need to over do it unless extremely flaky (ie; Lubriderm/Cetaphil lotion if your skin is oily. Coconut oil/vitamin e oil if your skin is more dry.)
Do not use any makeup on the brows for at least 2 weeks!
After the procedure is completely healed on the external 2-3 weeks, you may go back to your regular cleansing and makeup routine. You may lightly exfoliate the area to get excess dead skin off and resurface some pigment.
Use SPF after the area is completely healed
to protect from sun fading.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTER-CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION.
If the skin around the eyebrows breaks out in a minor rash, small pimples, this is usually a reaction to the numbing solution/ over use of ointment and should go away by itself in a couple weeks, Cleanse around the treated area with a warm damp wash cloth and an unscented, antibacterial soap, please continue to avoid wetting or touching the treated area. Please call or email the spa immediately if this occurs to inform your technician of the reaction and follow up to ensure this is not a more serious matter.
* Do not scrub or pick at any treated areas during the healing process!
* Do not use any Retinol/Retin A, Salicylic/Glycolic/Lactic Acid, Tretinoin or Adapalene treatments for at least 10 days.
* Do not expose area to sun/tanning beds for at least 2 weeks!
* Do not tweeze/wax/dye the eyebrows for 2 weeks!
* Do not treat the face with any other cosmetic enhancements including facials, botox or laser treatments for at least 2 weeks!
PLEASE BE MINDFUL
Failure to follow post procedure instructions may result in infection or loss/discoloration of pigment
and we do not touch up for free!
What is normal?
* Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, and dry tightness.
-Ice packs are nice relief for swelling. Be sure to put in a plastic bag and cover with paper towel.
-Light application of aftercare ointments above the eyebrows work well for scabbing and tightness.
* Too dark and slightly uneven appearance.
-After 5-7 days the darkness will fade, and once any swelling dissipates the unevenness usually settles.
-If it is too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during your touch up appointment.
* Color change or color loss
-As the procedure area heals, the color will lighten and
sometimes seem to disappear in places. No one heals perfectly and this is normal for such a delicate procedure. Some of the pigment may darken up approaching complete healing 3-4 weeks.
-All of this can all be addressed during the touch up appointment which is why your touch up is necessary. The procedure area has to heal completely before we can address any concerns.
Complete healing takes 4-6 weeks.
We recommend the first touch up 6-8 weeks after the first session; which is included in total price.
Then every 6 months to 1 year
to keep them looking fresh and beautiful.
Future touch up sessions will cost the current touch up rate at the time you started your initial procedure.
If all of the hair strokes pigment has faded completely after 4 weeks, please email a clear photo, a consultation may be necessary to determine the cause and a second minor touch up may be needed to complete optimal results.
Any minor corrections prior to 3 months on completed treatments
are a minimum of $100.00 - $200.00
depending on the amount of work needed.
After 3 months it will be your regular touch up prices.
Please take into consideration that even if proper aftercare is followed
there are many factors which can cause some areas to heal lighter
or darker than others and are all out of our control.
Please be understanding of our time and efforts.
