Aftercare or Post Treatment

  • How long does it take to heal?

    Day 1-3 Your eyebrows are much darker and thicker than they will be when they heal. This is due to double pigmentation of epidermis and dermis layers. You may have redness that will subside within the first 48 hours.

    Day 4-6 The peeling begins. The dark outer color will start peeling off, revealing a softer, lighter color. Try to keep this area moisturized for easier flaking.

    Day 6-9 Dark outer color finishes peeling off. The color is lighter and softer and brows are thinner. The color may have a greyish or ashy tone for a few days until the color clarifies. Use lotion until needed.

  • Can I get them wet?

    Do not touch the area during the healing process.
    Monitor area for any oozing, if there is any, press gently with tissue to remove. If body fluids (lymph) remain, a thick scab will develop and will inhibit color pigment saturation.
    A scab will form within 2-3 days. When scabbing begins, apply ointment provided 2-3 times a day with cotton swab or clean hands (for brows only)
    For eyeliner- no application of ointment.
    If lashes have some dried lymph on them in the morning you can use either saline eyewash to remove or use cotton swab with a little bit of ointment and gently wipe the debris away.
    Tenderness, dryness and itching are normal during the healing process.
    Do not pick, peel or scratch the area or color will heal unevenly. Scratching may cause scarring.
    Make up may be applied lightly after some of the scabs have fallen off in order to not look too blotchy but please remove the make up gently as not to disturb the scabs. Although best not to apply any make up until healed.
