Information and Care for Brows
Eyebrow Pre Care Instructions
- Do not work out 24 hours before procedure.
- No alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure, please note that decaffeinated drinks sometimes has small amounts of caffeine which will affect your procedure. Ignoring this request will cause your blood to be thin and results in poor pigment retention, which means you will require more touch up appointments that will be billed at an additional rate.
- Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.
- Ask your physician if you can discontinue the use of Aspirin, Niacin, or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure. Choosing to take medications such as these prior to your procedure will make your blood thin, which will cause bleeding during your procedure. Blood pushes the pigment out of place and results in poor pigment retention. Please note poor pigment retention will cause you to need additional touch up appointments for which you will be billed for.
- Discontinue the use of Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes, "Hair, Skin, Nail" supplements 48 hours prior to procedure.
- Ask your physician is you can discontinue the use of Retin-A, Chemical and Laser Peels, microdermabrasions, and Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) at least 6 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure to prevent premature fading).
- Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 1 month prior to procedure.
- No brow waxing, tinting, tweezing, or threading 72 hours prior.
- Antibiotics, steroids, and other medications will greatly impact healed results. Clients are encouraged to avoid these 2 weeks prior to appointment.
Please Note: Failing to follow instructions will greatly impact your procedure and can cause you to need additional appointments that will be billed to you.
Eyebrow After Care Instructions
Treating your new brows with extreme care is essential for the best healed results. Following and being consistent with good aftercare will result in beautiful healed brows.
Day 1: The Day of the Procedure
- Open the provided Q-tips and wipe the brow area with Vaseline 3 time a day, do not let the brows dry out.
- Before you go to bed, wipe your brows with warm damp towelette. Then apply Vaseline again with Q-tips.
Day 2 to 4: This Is the Time to Wipe
- As soon as you wake up on day two. Take one of the 3 towelettes provided, run warm water and get towelette damp. Wipe your brows with the provided towelette. Directly afterward take provided Q-tip and apply Vaseline. Continue to observe the brow area, wipe and reapply antibiotic ointment as needed. I recommend 3 times a day. Oily and ethnic skin types will need to wipe throughout the entire day.
- Before bed add extra the brow antibiotic ointment. Be sure to throw Q-tips away after every use.
DAY 5 to 7 : Vaseline 2 to 3 times a day, wiping the brows are no longer necessary
- Remember: Following Day 1 to 4 aftercare is extremely important. It will help to remove the hardening lymphatic fluids that produce thick scabs. Thick scabs equals poor pigment retention.
- Important Note About Showering and Face Washing: Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair facing away from the water. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area. Day 2-7 do not splash water on the face area when washing and keep products far away from the brow area. Face wash should be removed with a gentle facial cloth, but never touching the brow area.
- Do not deviate drom the provided aftercare instructions. Doing so will cause complete loss of color and possible scars that will be hard to treat in the future.
- Use ONLY the provided aftercare ointment, unless it presents a medical threat.
- Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep (satin or silk)
- Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
- Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color
- No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
- Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one FULL week
- Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors.
- Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days
- Avoid swimming, lakes, saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs for the first 10 days
- Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area while healing (4 WEEKS)
- Avoid eyebrow grooming while the brows are still exfoliating (2 WEEKS MINIMUM)
