Before & After Care
Before your appointment
DO NOT: Work out the day of the procedure.
Discontinue tanning for one-week prior.
DO NOT: Take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure.
No alcohol or caffeine the day of procedure.
Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
It is possible to experience redness and swelling up to 48 hours after the procedure.
The treated area will appear much darker and bold due to the oxidation process during the healing period.
If the area is kept clean and dry then only a light pigment film (not thick scab) will appear after 4-7 days.
As the area heals it will become dry and itchy.
As the pigment film starts to flake off DO NOT pick, scratch, itch or pull off any of the areas which are peeling.
Choosing to pick at flakes and peeling areas will pull out pigment, and result in spots left without any pigment or in some cases scarring.
As the area continues to heal, a softer more natural result will be revealed underneath.
Please note that within the first 4 weeks the amount of pigment that you see can seem very faint. It may seem like the pigment has been lost; please be advised that as the skin regenerates the new skin can in some cases hide the hair strokes completely. You must allow the full healing time of 8 weeks to see the true color and result.
Wash your hands with an antibacterial soap before washing your eyebrows or applying the post care cream to avoid infection.
Day One (Day of appointment) -
Wait 2 hours letting the wounds weep. After 2 hours you must wipe off any excess lymph with a moist cotton pad using distilled water. Repeat this every 2 hours. Do NOT apply healing cream.
Avoid showering, if possible on day one.
Day Two through Nine -
At night gently wash the treated area with warm water and a mild cleanser. Pat the area dry, do not wipe.
For oily skin, apply a VERY THIN layer of healing cream with a cotton swab only ONCE a day (pm).
For dry skin, apply a VERY THIN layer of healing cream with a cotton swab only TWICE a day (am/pm).
When showering, apply a thin layer of ointment to the eyebrows to protect them from moisture. Keep your face away from the shower head, do not let water stream directly onto your face.
