Post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Please keep in mind that the healing process and healed results will vary per person depending on: skin, blood type, existing hair, bone structure, face shape, the amount of times the area had been worked on, lifestyle, medications and aftercare.
What to expect during the healing process: There will be scabbing and peeling in the treated areas during your healing process. Expect your brows to be dark and bold immediately after the procedure but it will get lighter later. Do not pick or peel pre-matured scabbing for it will cause scaring and affect the healing.
Avoided the following things for the first 14 days post procedure:
- Any activities that involves water (i.e. swimming, hot sauna, hot bath, or jacuzzi)
- Any activities that cause excessive sweating (i.e. sports)
- Sun tanning or salon tanning.
- UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
- Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck
- Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
- Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
- Drinking alcohol in excess for it may lead to slow healing of wounds
- Touching of the eyebrow area except when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab
First 9 days after your procedure: Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area until scabs are fully peeled off.
After 5-7 days: Use a clean cotton swab to gently apply a thin layer of the A&D ointment if needed. This can be done once at night time but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself.
Entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact us immediately, to discuss further instructions.
Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.
