Permanent Eyebrows

*Day 1: The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% (20%-40% for microblading) darker and bolder in width then when healed. Your skin will be red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker and warmer in color. There is some swelling, although difficult to see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.

*Day 2: Conditions remain the same

*Day 3: Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins

*Day 4: The skin begins to flaked, peeling from the outside edges first

*Day 5: Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies

Note: Due to the delicate nature of the microblading technique, microbladed brows heal much softer than most people anticipate. You may choose to add more color or adjust the color during your follow up appointment after the skin is completely healed and the color has matured. The follow up visit is absolutely necessary. Pigment can fade up to 50% during the healing process and may even be missing in spots.

** Permanent Makeup procedures are affected by the canvas (your skin) that they are performed on. If your skin is sun damaged, thick & uneven in texture, or excessively dry or oily, the result cannot be expected to be perfect after the initial procedure. Lifestyle, medications, smoking, metabolism, facial surgeries, and age of skin all contribute to fading. Touch ups are needed 3-12 weeks after initial procedure to ensure the best result and to address any concerns and yearly “Color Boosts” are recommended if you want to maintain your new permanent makeup. Please wear sunscreen to help slow down the fading process.

If there is any swelling after the procedure, an ice pack is advisable. Ice pack should be applied for no more than 15 minutes at one time.

Normal activity may be resumed at once keeping in mind that it is like an open wound and should be handled with care. Use only sterile swabs or cotton to touch the skin.

*Immediately after the procedure; No water on brows until the following morning (you may dab brows with clean cotton or gauze to remove any lymph) and apply ointment provided before bed

*Next morning; Carefully cleanse brows with antibacterial soap, rub soap on clean fingers, dab on brows, then splash with warm water to rinse. Gently pat dry with clean towel or gauze. Apply THIN layer of ointment (keep brows moist but able to breathe) Repeat this daily.

*Apply ointment 2-3 times a day for 7-10 days

DONT DO IT!!!!

DO NOT apply neosporin, this will draw the pigment out

DO NOT rub skin vigorously while washing your face for 10 days

DO NOT scratch oif itchy. Gently pat brow to relieve the itch

DO NOT pick any scabbing along the brows. Early removal of scabs will result in loss of pigment!

DO NOT sunbathe without sunglasses/hat and sunscreen for 30 days. This can cause pigment to fade significantly

DO NOT swim for 7-10 days. Try to keep brow area as dry as possible

DO NOT apply makeup to tattooed area for 7-10 days. This could result in an infection
