Stop using any skin thinners (Vitamin A, glycolic acids, exfoliation) on the brow area 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
If you tint your brows, tint it at least one week prior to the procedure.
Cosmetic botox or fillers should be done 2 weeks prior or 2 weeks after.
Any waxing or brow shaping should be done at least 2 days before.
DO NOT consume alcohol, caffeine or take any blood thinners (aspirin, ibuprofen, Niacin 48 hours before your procedure, this will cause excess bleeding and may affect your results).
We will not be able to tattoo over any blemishes, sores, and moles in or around the brow area.
POST APPOINTMENT (7-10 DAYS)
After care is crucial, it is very important to follow these instructions for the full 7 day healing period to ensure proper healing and colour retention. Results will vary for all individuals and I can not guarantee your results. Let your brow tattoo DRY HEAL FOR 24-48 HOURS after the procedure. Use the after care cream the first night and the next morning. Use a VERY SMALL amount on the brows using a clean finger or Q-tip, you do not want any build up of cream so an almost translucent layer is best. After the 24-48 hour healing period, moisturize your brow tattoo as needed for the next 2 weeks when ever they feel dry or tight.
WHAT TO EXPECT
DO NOT expect your brow tattoos to heal perfectly after the first session. This is a 2 step sometimes multiple step process. BE PATIENT during your 2 week healing process, your brows will change and appear different from day to day. THIS IS NORMAL. Immediately after your procedure your brows will appear darker and more defined and this will last up to 2 weeks. Your brow tattoo can appear more solid, hair strokes may seem to disappear and it may look wet and painted on. THIS IS NORMAL, be patient with the process.
Around days 4-9 you will experience scabbing and your brows may look dry and flaky. DO NOT PICK your scabs, let them fall off naturally. If scabbing comes off prematurely, missing hair strokes will result and cause patchy brows. Your brow tattoo will take up to 4-6 weeks to fully heal. When the scabbing comes off the hair strokes may seem faint, this is because a fresh layer of skin has healed over the brow tattoo. Give your brows a few weeks and the hair strokes should resurface.
You may experience itchiness in the brows after 10 days and up to 2 months because of the healing of the epidermal layer.
Not everyone's brows can heal clean and crisp.
Hair strokes for oiler skin types tend to heal more solid and powdery while drier skin types tend to heal more crisp and defined.
