The results and longevity of your tattoo will depend greatly on how you take care of your brows during the healing process and beyond. Each client’s skin will respond differently, both in the length of time it takes to heal, and the number of sessions needed for your desired results and colour retention. This information acts as a guideline only, and we cannot guarantee your results.
YOU MUST PURCHASE A SMALL BOTTLE OF BABY SHAMPOO TEAR & FRAGRANT FREE
Your aftercare ointment will be provided for you. If you happen to run out you can use vaseline
WASH HANDS BEFORE TOUCHING THE BROWS
- 30mins after the appointment you must wash the brows
- Then every 2hours apart. This must be done 5x in the first day, this will remove bacteria,dead skin, lymph(body fluid)
HOW TO WASH:
1- dampen a cotton round with cool water.
2- Place a tiny amount of the baby shampoo on it, with a very light touch, gently cleanse the brow outwards.
3- dampen a new cotton round to wash soap out, whipping outwards.
4- To dry, gently PAT with a clean paper towel or cotton.
5- Apply a THIN layer of the ointment after with a q-tip using a new end for each eyebrow.
-Rinse once in the morning & night repeating the steps 3 to 5 on how to wash.
--Threw out the day you are now going to apply a THIN layer of ointment. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin.
NORMAL/DRY SKIN 3-4x a day for ointment
OILY SKIN 2-3x a day for ointment
Bathing is recommended if not limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area. After showering pat the brows dry then apply a THIN layer of ointment.
- It is best to sleep on your back during the healing process to avoid friction on the brows. silk pillow cases are great.
-Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment/flakes when cleaning.
NEVER PUT THE OINTMENT ON A WET OR DAMP TATTOO. BE SURE NOT TO OVER-APPLY THE OINTMENT AS THIS WILL SUFFOCATE YOUR SKIN AND CAUSE BAD RETENTION.
*The goal is to have your skin flake off naturally and not overly dry out the area, as you don’t want it to form into large scabs. You want your tattoo to be semi- dry and lightly moisturized to stay flexible. NOT greasy or soft and soggy.
If the flaking phase is not over by 10 days, please continue your Aftercare instructions until flaking is completely finished.
THINGS NOT TO DO AFTER
*DO NOT PICK, PEEL, RUB or SCRATCH your scabs, let them fall off naturally.
If scabbing comes off prematurely, you could risk infection/scarring and loss of hair stroke.
* NO direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after procedure. After 2 weeks sunscreen is a must
for long term results. If you just happen to be going on vacation 2weeks after, wear a hat when outdoors and apply sunscreen
*NO make-up, lotions/moisturizers/cleansers/soaps on brow area for 2weeks. EXPECT WHAT IS TOLD FOR AFTERCARE
* DO NOT exercise and overly sweat for 10 days. Sweating opens the pores as it may infect, discolour, or prematurely fade your brow tattoo.
* DO NOT run direct water on your brow tattoo if it gets wet, lightly blot dry. DO NOT RUB
* DO NOT get massages, facials, or skin treatments on face for 4weeks after.
* NO botox and fillers untill 2weeks later
* DO NOT use exfoliant, retinol acids, or glycolic acid, acne treatments, peels, etc.. on the area EVER it will fade your
tattoo prematurely & distort the pigment. Once healed go around it for best long term results
* NO swimming, sauna’s, Jacuzzis, 2weeks after. This will cause fading.
* DO NOT tint, wax, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatment close to the brow area for 2weeks
* NEVER DO laser light therapy on your brow tattoo, EVER This can darken, lighten, and distort the pigment.
* Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the area for a month after.
* Only touch area with clean hands to avoid infection while healing
* Keep your hair away from your eyebrow area to prevent the possibility of infection
