Aftercare for Powder Eyebrows

Aftercare is very important for a beautiful and long lasting result.

Clean your eyebrows with two cotton pads (provided at the end of the procedure). The first one to be used 1 hour after the procedure. The second one to be used 2 hours after the procedure. Keep your brows dry for 7-14 days after the procedure.

Avoid swimming pool and sauna for 14 days.

Do not use any ointment, makeup, cream etc.

Do not dye or tweeze eyebrows for 2 weeks after the procedure.

Do not expose the treated area to the sun or a tanning bed for 14 days. Once your eyebrows are healed apply a sunscreen to the tattooed area.

Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. Removing it prematurely can cause pigment removal.

When your eyebrows are completely healed, you may go back to your regular cleansing and makeup routine.

Do not use any Retin-A or Glycolic Acids on the treated area during or after healing.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION.


WHAT TO EXPECT

Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness. Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. In 2-7 days the darkness fades, and once any swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If it is too dark or still a bit uneven 4 weeks after the procedure, we will make adjustments during the touch-up appointment. Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals, the color lightens and sometimes seems to disappear in places. This can all be addressed during the touch-up appointment which is why touch-up is necessary. The area must heal completely before we can address any concerns. Healing takes about 4 weeks. Please, remember that Powder Eyebrows is a two-step procedure. Touch-up is required 6-8 weeks after the initial appointment. Waiting longer can lead to additional charges. Color boost is recommended every 12-18 months to keep eyebrows looking fresh and beautiful.



Aftercare for Lip Blushing

We recommend applying ice pack to your lips for 10-15 minutes for 4-8 hours after the procedure. Ice reduces swelling and provides comfort.

Do not use any soap, cleanser or shampoo on the treated area for 5 days.

Apply A&D ointment with a Q-tip to the lips for 5 days after the procedure (3 times a day).

Do not kiss, smoke, use lipstick/lip gloss, or sunbathe for 5 days after the procedure.

Do not excessively stretch lips while they are healing with big smile or smoking.

Avoid hot, steamy baths and showers.

For 3 days after the procedure use a straw when drinking liquids; avoid eating food that might cause friction to the lips (such as sandwiches, fruits etc.). Choose food you can place in your mouth with a fork without touching lips.

Before your lips are fully healed avoid teeth whitening procedures.

For 3 days after the procedure apply lip ointment before brushing your teeth and use kids' toothpaste.


WHAT TO EXPECT

Swelling, oozing, and some redness are normal the next day after the procedure. Lips will peel for a week. Picking and pulling off skin will cause pigment loss and can pull out deeper tissue. The edges or lip liner will be the last to fall off. Pulling this off will result in an uneven splotchy line or an indented scar. During the peeling process, it may look like there is not much color left. True color will be visible 4-6 weeks after the procedure. Touch-up is required 6-8 weeks after the initial appointment. Waiting longer can lead to additional charges.
