BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE

  • Do not have Botox 2 weeks before your procedure
  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners)

  • Electrolysis, IPL Laser and eyebrow stimulating products should be avoided for 1 month before your treatment
  • You may experience minor swelling, redness and tenderness, Itchiness in the eyebrow area, dry, flaking skin for 14 days

In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor colour results:

  • Do not drink alcohol 24 hours (heavily for 48 hours) before your tattoo
  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure
  • Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood)

The day of the treatment:

Gently blot your brow with a clean tissue (after your brow treatment) for the first hour on the day of your procedure to remove the lymph (bodily fluid which causes scabbing) and apply a rice gran amount of aftercare every 3 hours.

Days 1-7Wash 

Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and a gentle antibacterial cleanser, anything for sensitive skin or baby products are perfect (this will not wash out the pigment!).  Very lightly use your fingertips to gently cleanse the brow, use small circular movements for 10 seconds and then rinse with water until the cleanser has been rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue, do not rub with a towel. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants as this will affect the pigment.

Days 1-7 Moisturize
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment 3 times a day (make sure the skin is dry). Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and affect the results.

Important Reminders

  • Use a fresh pillowcase and avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after procedure
  • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of colour
  • No facials, Botox, chemical treatments, peels or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week, swimming, saunas and Jacuzzis for 1 month
  • Avoid heavy sweating and long hot showers for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid topical makeup including sunscreen on the area
  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area.

Showering
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face out of the water while you wash your body to avoid excessively getting it wet. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower.  Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.

Important Notes

Remember your selected colour will be stronger and more defined for the first few days after application but as the healing process occurs, the colour will soften and lighten.

The pigment may look very faded under the healing skin around the second week, this is very normal and the colour will reappear as the skin heals (from the 3rd week).

The approximate healing period is 14 days, however this can be prolonged if your immune system is compromised, if you are generally stressed or have a poor diet.

Keep in mind that some unevenness in colour is to be expected – this is the purpose of the control visit, which is included in the initial cost. However, if you do not attend your control visit then you will be charged for further treatments.

Cancellation notice is 24 hours and you may lose your deposit if you cancel within this time.

Please remember to use a good sunscreen as exposure will fade pigment.
