How To Care For Your Brow Treatment
A post treatment guide
Hello gorgeous and congratulation on your new eyebrows!
In order to implement pigment into your skin, we have to stretch the skin, that’s why you may experience redness and swelling, that will go away in a few hours.
Because pigment oxidizes with the air, your eyebrows will look darker and still could be swollen, especially in the morning.
Make sure to pat them with makeup remover paper every hour for the first 48 hours to remove all fluid. This will help them heal faster. Each time you touch them, remember to sanitize your hands to avoid infection.
Do not wet them for the first 48 hours, take a bath instead of the shower so they stay dry.
Change your pillowcase to help your eyebrows stay clean.
After 48 hours apply a very thin coat of ointment cream and once again at night time only. (Use a Quitip, and make sure your hands are clean)
Avoid sweating such as from vigorous exercise or saunas, hot tubs, and facials until your eyebrows peel off.
When the area starts to flake, leave it.
Do not pick, peel, or pull on the skin...
(If you do, your eyebrows won’t heal evenly and will be patchy)
When your eyebrows have completed the peeling process, you can pencil them in, remember, it’s normal for them to be “gone” due to the healing process. They’ll look super light, almost as if nothing is visible.
The final color begins to stabilize and show through. The color will continue to soften as the healing process completes.
Lifestyle, medication, smoking, metabolism, and age of skin all contribute to fading. The initial application is always applied conservatively because every person's skin is different and the final color can only be precisely determined and adjusted during a follow-up appointment after the initial application has fully healed.
Because of this, the micro-pigmentation process is not complete after the initial procedure. In all cases, a follow-up appointment is required approximately 4-8 weeks after your initial application to fine-tune and ensure the best results.
At all times avoid Retin A, glycolic acids, exfoliant, and anti-aging products on all micropigmented areas. These can cause pigments to fade and lights up prematurely. Before you use any cosmetic product (after they heal) apply coconut oil, to protect your eyebrows.
Pigments will slowly fade over time according to one’s metabolism, skin type, sun exposure, medication, facial surgery, and smoking.
Periodic revisits will ensure longer-lasting results, schedule maintenance visits as needed to keep it looking fresh.
After your eyebrows are healed, you are a free bird, a beautiful bird, you can swim, touch them and they will stay there!

THE HEALING PROCESS
What to Expect in the First 6-8 weeks:
Intensified color and swelling are part of the initial stages of healing. Be patient. Do not freak out. The intensity should regress within 7-10 days. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal scabbing and/or flaking may take place. Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process. The true vibrancy of your cosmetic tattoo is achieved between weeks 6 and 8..in the time leading up to then you'll experience a slight loss in colour before it begins to regenerate as your skin naturally exfoliates.
THE HEALED RESULTS
Caring for my New Brows
You made it! Celebrate by sleeping a little longer each day and enjoy your newfound free time. To preserve your completely healed results; apply sunscreen regularly, hats and larger sunglasses are encouraged and avoid over exposure to the sun. Chlorine, glycol acid, microdermabrasion and other cosmetic products can lighten the pigment with repeated use. When getting any procedures, whether it be cosmetic or not, done to your face please let the individual performing the service know about your microbladed brows and continue at your own discretion. We are not responsible for any changes made to your brows in its reaction to any additional services you may receive.
Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period brows might appear lighter than original. Often, even with proper care, clients develop bald spots or loose original hairstrokes which makes brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal because your natural skin regeneration is not a process that you or technician can control. That's why most clients need a touch up after 1 month to assure that brows are perfectly even and desired effect was achieved.
