AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS 

Immediately After: Gently blot the brows with dry tissue for lymphatic drainage. Do not touch them with unwashed hands. Do a cold compress, gently, if they are swollen or irritated. Begin washing schedule 3-4 hours after you have left your appointment. Wash your brows with approved soap and your fingertips in the direction of the hair. Do not wash them in the shower but you can get them wet. Always gently blot brows with clean tissue to dry before applying ointment. Then apply a divided rice grain amount of ointment to both brows- think “slightly cover not smother” for the ointment application on the brows. Sleep on a clean pillow case. Avoid sleeping face down. ——
Days 2-10: Wash morning and night. Morning wash- at the sink, not in the shower. Gently blot to dry and apply rice grain amount of ointment. Night wash- at the sink, not in the shower. Gently blot to dry and apply rice grain amount of ointment. *Gently blot away any lymphatic drainage- this will/can look like beads of dew on your brows. *scabbing may begin days (4-7) do NOT pick or pluck scabs. Let them naturally exfoliate for best results

HEALING EXPECTATIONS 

You will go through a rollercoaster of emotion on your new brow journey as you heal. I tell everyone “this is your face, it’s kind of a big deal and definitely okay to be scared and apprehensive” but you’re not alone on this journey. TRUST the process and follow your aftercare. 


.

Days 1-3 : “Love them” and/or the “what have I done” stage. This is a normal response because again, ITS YOUR FACE and it can be a big and scary change to wake up and see brows on your face! They will appear swollen and darker the first few days. Pigment will fade anywhere from 20-50% when you’ve healed. They will soften up in appearance and tone once they’ve healed. 

.

.

Days 4-7 : “scabbing?!”- yesss..there is no way around it. Days 4-7 doesn’t mean you will immediately scab on day 4 and end on day 7, it means you could begin scabbing on day 6 and continue to scab and shed scabs for another week. It depends on your body. And everybody’s body is different especially with how you heal. But just expect it and accept it as part of the process. You could even experience little to no scabbing. 🤞🏼 It may appear mild as dry flaky skin for a few days, or you could experience, thick patches of scabbing that lasts a week. There is no way to tell or know when or how you will scab. *tip- buy some cheap and cute “fake” glasses from Amazon that will help hide the brow area while you’re healing if you’re concerned most about this phase!*

Days 8-12 : “my brows are gone!?!” — yessss, after they have naturally exfoliated the scabs the ink oxidizes under those new skin cells. Sometimes this will make the ink disappear or appear uneven and patchy. Totally normal, and although it can be discouraging after just making it through the dreaded scabbing phase to only lose those precious Picasso’s. The ink will resurface. And we’re another step closer to your perfecting touchup appointment! 

.

Days 14-30 : “pigment is back, I’m healed, but I’m patchy?” —yes, and this is completely normal. And 10000% expected. This is why this is a two step process, we will perfect any imperfections at your touchup 😊
