Post treatment care makes 50% of the total treatment success. Conscientiously adhere to the given advice because if not, you risk losing up to 80% of the drawn strokes.
At the end of your session, we will provide you with an after care kit that has everything you need for the 7-10 day healing process. This may vary per skin type, but 10 days recommended for the best results.
IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR THE FIRST 7-10 DAYS:
- Gently wipe the treated area with an aftercare wipe 30 minutes after the procedure, allow the skin to dry and then apply a thin layer of the aftercare ointment.
- Gently wash your brows with baby shampoo, lukewarm water, dap dry with a paper towel, allow the skin to dry then apply a thin layer of the aftercare ointment every hour for the first 3 hours after the wipe. Repeat the process of washing 2 more times before bed.
- Days 2-7, gently dab the treated area with the paper towels as needed (if you still have lymph) prior to applying the provided ointment, make sure the skin is always dry before applying.
- Continue apply aftercare ointment 3-5 times a day for normal skin, 1-2 times daily for oily skin

THE HEALING PROCESS
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE:
The first week is going to be intense. The good news is, the intensified color and slight redness are part of the initial stages of healing and will only be from days 2-5. Don’t worry, don’t freak out.. just be patient. This is the initial shock phase and we ask that you just simply trust the process. After 7 days, the brows will fade about 20% and shrink about 10% to a much more natural look. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal peeling or flaking may take place. Refrain from picking at your brows as you may risk scarring and removing pigment in the process.
Healing will vary with skin type, but you may experience color fading and loss of hair strokes. This is completely normal. We like to include a complimentary touch up session where we can assess your healing and fill in any missing strokes as well as a color boost. We can then recommend the best follow up timeline for future appointments.
