Post Care

Aftercare is a very important part of permanent makeup. Ineffective aftercare increases the likelihood of the pigment not retaining correctly. Be sure to follow the instructions to ensure your brows will continue to look amazing after the healing process is complete.

Days 1-7
Wash brows morning and night using the antibacterial soap provided. Use gentle circular motions, rinse, and pat dry with a paper towel.

Day 3-7
Beginning on day 3 add a tiny rice grain sized amount of aftercare cream to your brows after you wash and dry them.

  • Do not rub, pick, or scratch the treated area, let the skin naturally exfoliate off.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for a minimum of four weeks. Once healed apply sunscreen to ensure to prevent fading.

  • Avoid pools, hot tubs, saunas, for two weeks, Avoid sleeping on your face the first ten days

  • Avoid getting your brows directly in the running shower water for 10 days.

  • Do not use makeup on the brow area until the skin has fully exfoliated off.

  • Avoid facials, chemical treatments, Botox, for four weeks.

*Please note color will appear darker and bolder directly after the service and even more so in the following days. Once fully healed, your brows should heal around 30-40% lighter and shrink around 30%.
We can always go darker and bolder at the touch up session if that is desired.
Please be patient and trust the process.
