  • Keep clean and DRY for the first 24 hours! Expect some swelling and redness.
  • After 24 hrs, Wash ONCE every day with a gentle face cleanser and water rinse for no more than 10 to 15 seconds and pat dry.
  • After 24 hrs, use a Q-tip to apply a THIN LAYER of Aquaphor ONCE every day for 7-10 days. Do NOT saturate. Dry healing is the goal. If you have oily skin, use the Aquaphor every other day.
  • Don’t be alarmed if color comes off on to the Q-Tip when applying topical ointment. This is normal. 
  • If slight crust appears on pigmented surface, do not force removal by picking or scratching!! (You will remove pigment along with crusting) Brows are not considered done with outer healing until all crusting has exfoliated naturally.
  • The procedure may have some peeling on or around the 3rd day. This is a normal process of healing for some clients. Do not Pick…picking can cause scarring and loss of color.
  • The application of permanent cosmetics is a 2 step procedure. Do not judge your procedure while in the healing stage. It will require a touch up. We will make any adjustments needed at your follow up appointment. Nothing can be done prior to that appointment to make sure the skin heals without any complications.
  • Do not use eyebrow pencils or any other makeup on the pigmented area for 10 days (to lighten it, darken it, or cover/mute down)
  • Avoid tweezing, tinting, or waxing of brows for 2 weeks following the procedure.
  • Avoid hot/steamy/long showers. A thin coat of Aquaphor over the pigment is a good idea before showering.
  • Avoid the gym or sweating for 7 days following the procedure. 
  • Avoid sun for 2 weeks following the procedure. 
  • Avoid chlorine pools, saunas and hot tubs for 2 weeks.
  • Avoid Retin A, Glycolic Acids, Aloe, and Vitamin E products on entire face.
  • Avoid Terry Towels on pigmented areas. (rough towel)
  • If you are planning a chemical peel, IPL/BBL/PhotoFacial, MRI, or other medical procedures inform them that you have a cosmetic tattoo. Lasers can cause pigment to turn black and burn skin; procedure site must be avoided.
  • You must wait 1 year after any tattoo to give blood.
  • If any signs of infection occur, abnormal swelling, redness or pain associated with the procedure, call your physician (and please give us a call).
  • After you have healed, use a good sunscreen daily to help prevent premature fading of all procedures.
  • First touchup is 6-8 weeks after initial service.
