Careful aftercare is extremely important for producing a beautiful and lasting result.

  • Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it is ready the pigment underneath it could be pulled out.

  • Do not use any makeup on the brows for at least 7 days.

  • Do not swim, sauna, or do activities that cause excessive sweating.

  • After the procedure is completely healed, you may go back to your regular cleansing and makeup routine. Avoid scrubbing the area. Use sun block after the procedure area is healed to protect from sun fading.


Cautions: If the skin around the eyebrows breaks out in a heat rash, small pimples, this is usually a reaction to the numbing solution and should go away by itself in a couple weeks, don’t pick. Please call immediately if this occurs so a technician can make note of the reaction and follow up to ensure this is not a more serious situation.



  • Do not use any Retin-A or Glycolic Acids in the brow area during or after healing!

  • Do not scrub or pick treated areas!

  • Do not expose area to the sun or tanning beds!

  • Do not drink alcohol or eat spicy food or other food that may cause excessive sweating and inflammation within 7 days.

  • Avoid swimming  for 7 days!

  • Do not dye or tweeze eyebrows for one week after the procedure!

  • Avoid contact with animals and soil (gardening) for 7 days after the procedure!

  • If abnormal and severe redness, swelling, red streaks, or any other signs of infections occur, please contact a doctor.

  • Failure to follow post procedure instructions may result in infection or loss/discoloration of pigment.


What is normal?

  • Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness. Ice packs are nice relief for swelling and bruising. Aftercare Gel works well for scabbing and tightness.

  • Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade, and once any swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If it is too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks, we will make adjustments during the touch up appointment.

  • Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals, the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear in places. This can all be addressed during the touch up appointment, which is why touch up is necessary. The procedure area has to heal completely before we can address any concerns. Healing takes about four weeks.

  • Need a touch up months later. We recommend the first touch up session 30 to 60 days after the first session. A touchup session completes and perfects your permanent makeup and a touchup session makes your cosmetic tattoos last much longer. After your touchup session, Permanent makeup generally lasts 2 to 3 years on dry and normal skin and 1.5 to  2 years on oily skin.
