Please follow these instructions to ensure proper healing and color retention.

 

Aftercare for All Treatments

Please follow these instructions to ensure proper healing and color retention.  Apply a thin layer of Healing Cream when you get home, then gently twice a day (morning and evening), with clean fingertips for seven days after treatment.  Do not use cotton pads or swabs.  Do not expose brows to water for 24 hours after treatment.
When washing your face, keep soap and shampoo away from treatment area.  Re-apply Healing Cream after washing your face.  Ensure that the treatment area stays lightly moisturized during the healing period.  Do not rub or scratch treatment area, and expose only to clean water.

For One Week

Avoid sun exposure, saunas, excessive sweating, tanning, and makeup application on the treatment area.

For Two Weeks

Avoid swimming and facials.

 

Immediately after treatment: Treatment area will feel sensitive.  Any redness and swelling will subside within a few hours.

Day 1 – 3

Brow will look dark, as if you have brow pencil on it.  The color will soften significantly and gradually over the next few weeks.

Day 3 – 5

Brow might begin to itch.  If you feel discomfort, gently press on the brow area.  Do not pick or scratch.

Day 5 – 7

Pigment will begin to peel, from the outside edges of the brow.  Do not pick or pull at the flaking pigment, but allow to fall naturally.  Peeling period may take anywhere from several days to over a week.

Day 7 – 10

Pigment stops peeling.  Color underneath will appear softer and less visible for a few weeks.

 

Note that the above are general guidelines.  Some specific skin types (e.g. oily skin) may go at a different pace.  Please consult your Specialist.


The full healing process takes 6 – 8 weeks.  It may appear that most or all of the color has been lost in the first few weeks after treatment, but this is just the pigment oxidizing and your skin naturally healing.  The color will fade significantly first before reappearing again.  Towards the end of the healing process is when you will see the microbladed brow strokes take their true color.  Please be patient, and allow the brow to fully heal before judging the results.


Once the brow has fully healed, we can see what adjustments (if any) need to be made for the touch-up Session.  The touch-up session can only be done once the brow has fully healed, to avoid damaging the skin.

To prolong the life of your treated brows, avoid the following on the brow area: intensive products (e.g. retinol, glycolic acid, facial peels), Prolonged sun exposure, Laser treatments.
