Instructions & Aftercare
What are my pre-procedure instructions?
We require our clients to avoid caffeine, alcohol, Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, vitamin E and omega supplements 24 HOURS PRIOR to your appointment.
To prevent poor ink retention, excessive bleeding and pain we strongly advise our clients to follow the instructions. If you're unable to do so on the day of your procedure, your appointment will be rescheduled.
What is the aftercare?
To prolong the appearance as much as possible aftercare is extremely recommended!
Please follow aftercare instructions morning and night till your brows are healed and sealed:
1. Purchase antibacterial hand soap (Dial, soft soap etc.) from your local drug store (Shoppers, London Drugs etc.) Wash your hands with thoroughly as we don't want bacteria to come in contact with your brows!
2. For the first two days after your procedure use a clean q-tip and run under warm water. Drag lightly across your brows to remove lymph. Lymph is a clear/oily like substance which your body naturally secrets which produces scabs. With removing the lymph decreases scabbing and increases better retention!
2. Day 3-10 gently clean the area with antibacterial soap (20% soap and 80% water). Be sure to get in between the hairs and do not wash for more than 30 seconds. Do not pick, pull or scratch scabs as we want this these to stay on as long as possible (if these scabs fall off prematurely, this area may look lighter).
3. Lightly pat the area dry with a clean paper towel or q-tip. Please try to avoid getting the area wet for long for more than 1 minute. If this does happen pat dry as soon as possible.
Avoid swimming, hot tubs, steam rooms, intense exercise, applying make up (directly on brows) for 1 week.
Avoid direct natural sun and artificial tanning beds for 4 weeks.
After 10 days you can return back to regular skin care and make up routine.
Your eyebrows will appear bolder after application and will fade between 20%-40% within the first week. This is why aftercare is so important, better care means a better result!
What to expect?
You will experience a few minor side effects such as peeling, flaking, redness and itching. This is apart of the healing process so not to worry!
When do I book my touch up?
Touch ups are strongly advised to book in 4-6 week as the pigment may not hold in some areas. This is where we perfect the final touches to have your brows looking amazing! It is also recommended to come for an colour refresh in 12-15 months time.
