Careful aftercare is very important for producing a beautiful and lasting result.
Use clear tattoo aftercare gel for 10 days. Only use baby soap to wash your face during these 10 days. Do not let any other skin care products get into your eyebrows, eyes or lips. During shower, chin up to avoid hair shampoo or conditioner getting into your eyebrows or eyes. Apply half pump of the tattoo recovery gel, then with a dry cotton wipe gently across each brow onceto get off the excess goo. Right after your procedure, treat your brows with Tattoo Aftercare Gel every 1.5 hours until you go to bed. Treat your eyebrows every 3 hours on the day after your procedure. On the 3rd day, treat your eyebrows every 5 hours. On day 4 through 10, treat your eyebrows in the mornings and evenings once only. Starting on day three when scab starts to appear, you must be gentle, do not pull off the scabs prematurely. Following this procedure will ensure the formation of thin scabs thus more color retention. Keep out of the sun for 7 days.
As instructed, apply the ointments with freshly washed hands or cotton rounds. Never touch the procedure area without washing your hands immediately before.
It is very important to keep the brows covered with ointment while in shower or during a strenuous workout to prevent moisture from penetrating.
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 can be pulled out.
Do not use any makeup on the brows for at least 5 days.
Do not swim, sauna and 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.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTER-CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION.
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, eat spicy food or other food that may cause excessive sweating and inflammation within 7 days.
Avoid swimming pool for 14 days!
Do Not dye or tweeze eyebrows for one week after the procedure!
Avoid contact with animals and soil (gardening) for 14 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 ointments work 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 then 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 30 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 1.5 to 2 years on dry and normal skin and 1 to 1.5 years on oily skin.
