Post-Care For Permanent Eyebrows

For A Week After The Procedure:

  • To avoid old body oils, cosmetics and cream regimes rubbing into your new permanent makeup, we strongly recommend a new, clean pillowcase.  Any pigment residue from the procedure may stain your pillowcase for at least one week after your appointment.
  • Gently clean the treated areas each morning and evening with tepid, clear water and your clean fingertips.  Pat the areas dry, avoid scrubbing or rubbing the areas.  Do not use any soaps, cleansing creams lotions or chemicals to the pigments area(s).  Instead, use a very thin application of A&D Ointment or Vaseline two to three times daily (less is more!).  If redness occurs, discontinue the ointment and contact us.
  • We strongly recommend that you don’t apply makeup to the treated area for at least five days.  Refrain from soaking the treated area(s) in a bathtub, hot tub, swimming pool or steam.  Avoid the sun and do not scratch or rub the area.

For a Month After The Procedure:

  • Do not use soaps, cleansing creams or chemicals on the pigmented area(s).  You risk stripping or rubbing away some of the color before your skin has a chance to fully heal.
  • You may apply a light moisturizer over your brows after the first week, if it doesn’t contain any Retin A, Glycolic Acid or Alpha-Hydroxy Acids.

For A Lifetime After The Procedure:

  • Avoid exposing the treated areas to the sun or a tanning bed.
  • If sun or UV exposure is unavoidable, apply “Chapstick with 30 SPF” to each brow before exposing the treated areas.
  • Keep products containing Retin A, Glycolic Acid or Alpha-Hydroxy Acids a half inch away from your brows at all times as these products can ruin the integrity of your permanent makeup.

Good To know:

  • The treated area(s) will appear very intense and bright immediately after the procedure.  It may appear to be too dark for up to 30 days after the procedure.  Remember that as the skin heals and the pigmented areas set, the colors will soften and blend.
  • A follow-up visit can be scheduled up to 90 days after the initial application of permanent makeup.  This visit is free and can refine and fine-tune your new look.  We recommend booking a visit 30 days after the initial procedure.
