THE HEALING PROCESS

Please note this timeframe is a GUIDE ONLY as everybody heals at different rates.

  • Day 1- 3: Your new brows will look quite dark 

  • Day 4- 7: You will experience peeling and scabbing, try not to pick at them.

  • Day 8- 14: Your brows will appear faded, and discoloured. They can look grey or flesh like & it can look like everything has disappeared.

  • Weeks 2- 6: The colour will slowly start to return to your brows as they begin to heal

 

A retouch may be required to boost the colour and longevity of the brows.

Please note, it is your responsibility to follow the aftercare instructions. Failure to follow the advice will result in less than desired results.

OMBRÈ BROWS

Following your treatment:

  • For the next 7 days you must keep your brows as dry as possible

 

From day 3:

  • You must use a damp cotton pad to gently clean your brows in order to get rid of any debris and prevent infection.

  • Follow this with applying a small amount of the vitamin A & D ointment provided, on each brow.

  • Do this only once a day, for the next 14 days.

After day 7:

 

  • You no longer need to use a cotton pad to clean your brows before applying the ointment, as you will be able to wash your face as normal.

  • Continue to be as gentle as possible in the brow area.

MICROBLADING & COMBINATION BROWS 

Following your treatment:

 

  • Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb any excess lymph fluid. 

  • Removing this fluid will prevent any hardening/crusting. 


When you get home:

 • Ideally you will need to wash the brows 3 times a day for the next 10 days, particularly if you have oily skin - Once in the AM and Once in the PM minimum & Ideally a third time at midday 

• Using a plain bar of dove soap, work the soap into a lather and gently use your fingertips to cleanse the eyebrows, rubbing the area in a smooth motion following hair growth for 30 seconds, then gently rinse with lukewarm water - Not hot.

Make sure that all the soap is rinsed away. 

• Very gently, and thoroughly, pat dry with a tissue or paper towel.

DO NOT use any other cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, Retin A or AHA), or any exfoliants. ONLY what is recommended.

Aftercare | General Brow Care

Use a fresh pillow case, and try not to sleep on your face or eyebrows to avoid infection.
For 2 to 10 days after the treatment you may experience the following symptoms with your brows:

Flaking, Tenderness, Dryness, Swelling, Redness and itching - this is NORMAL.

Let any flaky dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring and will result in the loss of colour.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHOWERING 

  • Until your brows are healed, it is essential that you limit the time you spend in the shower.

  • Avoid using very hot water and creating steam, as this will result in unwanted moisture on the face.

  • It is advised that you cover your forehead and eyebrow area with a shower cap as you wash your body.

  • Try to wash your face outside of showering. 


THINGS TO AVOID FOR THE NEXT 2 WEEKS (UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE)

  • No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 6 weeks after treatment

  • No exercise, in order to avoid excessive and unnecessary sweat

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning for 4 weeks after procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors. And once fully healed, be sure to protect your eyebrow with SPF 30 or higher. Any prolonged sun exposure will cause premature fading. 

  • Avoid harsh creams/serums/masks etc. on your brow area indefinitely, specifically products with Glycolic acid, Retinol and AHAs etc.

  • No swimming, saunas, Jacuzzis etc​

  • Avoid applying any type of makeup to your brow area

  • Avoid covering your brows with a fringe to keep infection away

  •  Keep your hands off of the area. No picking or scratching the treated area. ​

THE HEALING PROCESS

Your new lips will take a minimum of 6 weeks to heal. Please do not expect final healed results before this time frame.

  • Day 1- 2: Your new lips will look VERY BRIGHT & SWOLLEN. The swelling should go down within 48 hours.

  • Day 3- 7: Your lips will be very dry and may look incredibly dark. You will experience scabbing and flaking. 

  • Day 8- 12: Your lips may appear faded, and look very light/ faint in colour.

  • Weeks 2 - 4: You may experience extreme hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation - Your lips will look patchy.

  • Week 6: The colour will start return to your lips and you will start to see the true healed results

A top up may be required to boost the colour and longevity of the lips, particularly if your lips are dark.

Please note, it is your responsibility to follow the aftercare instructions. Failure to follow the advice will result in less than desired results.

LIP BLUSH / LIP NEUTRALIZATION:

Following your treatment:

 

Your lips will feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch. They will look swollen and appear brighter in colour.

When you get home after your treatment:

  • Excess lymph fluid may appear on your lips. Ensure you wipe your tattoo EVERY HOUR with a damn cotton pad, then pat the area dry to ensure no fluids sit and apply your aftercare cream. 

For the next 7 days:

  • You must keep your lips as moisturized as possible with the aftercare cream provided. Apply the ointment multiple times in a day whenever required. Use the cream until is it finished. 

  • No kissing, rubbing or friction on the treatment area.

  • Avoid oily, spicy and heavily seasoned food and drink with a straw. After every meal gently clean your lips with water and pat dry.

Day 3-7:

  • Your lips will start the peeling process. Do not touch your tattoo with dirty fingers, remember it is an opened and healing wound. An infection could possibly ruin the tattoo.

  • Don't get your tattoo too wet for too long. It will make the scabs soggy and easier to fall off prematurely. Remember, you want to keep the scabs on for as long as you can, let them fall off naturally.

After Scabbing Phase:

  • Once all the scabs have completely fallen off, you may apply makeup over the area and return back to your normal routine. Note that after the scabs come off your lip tattoo may have a milky/grey hue to it. This just means that the surface skin is healed but the underneath layers still need time to heal. The complete healing process takes 6 weeks. At 6 weeks the true and final colour of the tattoo will show. It is only after 6 weeks that a top up to the tattoo can be done.

  • You may experience excessive hypo/hyperpigmentation on your lips throughout the healing process, this is normal.

  • Please note that your lip tattoo will be softer and not as crisp when healed.
