How you take care of your fresh permanent makeup is EVERYTHING!
Immediately following your procedure, your brows will appear to be darker and more sharply defined than the final result. This is completely normal and will lighten after a few days. Minimal discomfort, scabbing, flaking and dryness of the skin are also normal during the healing period. The complete healing process takes about 4-6 weeks. During this process, your tattoo will soften and lighten. Be patient, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating. Once the treated area is completely healed, any changes or additions that need to be made can be done at your follow-up appointment no sooner than 4-6 weeks after your initial session.
Avoid Until Healed
- Topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.
- Picking at or removing scabs, dry skin/flakiness.
- Rubbing or scratching the treated area.
- Vaseline, Neosporin and any other petroleum-based products.
- Exfoliants, retinol acids, AHA or lactic product on the area.
- Sweaty exercise, pools, jacuzzi, sauna or other bodies of water.
- UV exposure (including tanning booths) or laser light therapy.
Blot: Day Of. After the procedure, gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 30 minutes for the full day until the oozing has stopped.
Wash: Daily. Morning/Night: With a very light touch and antibacterial soap, use your fingertips to cleanse your eyebrows. Rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue or cotton rounds.
Moisturize: Week Of. Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
