  • Expose to direct sunlight or tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks.

  • Get wet! No pool, sauna, steam rooms, steamy hot showers/baths for 3 weeks.

  • Use dry shampoo as long as you can stand it and then avoid getting eyebrows wet when shampooing and bathing for the first 10 days.

  • Avoid sleeping with anything rubbing on your brows for the first 10 days.

  • Once the area has healed completely, use sunblock to stop the color from fading.

  • Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels, & Microderms around the brow area once healed.

  • Avoid skincare that has the words "ACID", "RETIN A", & "GLYCOL” on your eyebrows and surrounding skin! Be sure to check your foundations and primers. Watch for products with words like "long lasting" or "Forever".

 

Eyebrows Healing Process:

  • Day 1-2 - The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker & bolder in width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. 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 thinner appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows.

  • Day 3 - Eyebrows will start to itch & will appear a bit thicker in texture. Natural exfoliation & flaking begins, do NOT exfoliate yourself.

  • Day 4 - The skin begins to flake/peel from the outside edges first.

  • Day 5 - Color finishes flaking off & appears softer & duller for 8 weeks until color clarifies.

* * AVOID ANY SKINCARE THAT HAS THE WORDS "ACID" "RETIN A" "GLYCOL" ON THE AREA TREATED!

Eyeliner Healing Process:
