Though rare, infection is possible if aftercare is not handled correctly and with caution. It’s important to follow aftercare instructions to obtain optimal results.

  • Stay out of the sun for the first 24 hours after your session.

  • You MUST wear a hit with a brim if you decide to be outdoors.

  • Do NOT sleep on your side until your brows are completely done shedding.
    Note: Sleeping on your side will rub your scabs off too early, which will then result in your brows healing blurry or disappear completely. Try using a travel pillow to keep your head straight while sleeping.

  • When the area starts to flake, leave it alone. Do not pick, peel, or pull on the skin.
    Note: If you accidentally scratch or pick at your scabs, it will pull out your ink and will results in an empty spot where strokes will appear to be missing. I recommend cutting your nails short and filing them.

  • Dab a thin coat of the provided with a clean q-tip, morning and night for 7 days or until you use all the ointment in the container.
    Note: Make sure to also apply the ointment before taking a shower.

  • Avoid sweating for 7 days.

  • You MUST keep your brows dry for the next 7 days.

  • Use a washcloth to wash your face to better control liquids from running.

  • DO NOT allow water to touch the treated area during showering or bathing for the first 7 days.

  • Until healing is complete, keep your hands clean and avoid touching your brows.

  • Do NOT use a scrub or pick treated brows.

  • Do NOT use peroxide or Neosporin.

  • Do NOT expose brow area to direct sun or to tanning beds.

  • Avoid exposing your brows to excessive moisture or humidity, such as facials, swimming, whirlpools (hot tubs), saunas, steam rooms, and steamy showers.

after your brows heal

  • Avoid Retin-A, moisturizers containing retinol, glycolic acids, exfoliants, and anti-aging products at all times on all microbladed areas. These can cause pigments to fade and lighten prematurely.

  • Avoid tanning beds.

  • Must apply sunscreen if under direct sun.

  • Pigments will slowly fade over time, according to one’s metabolism, skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, medication, facial surgery, and smoking habits.

  • Periodic touch-ups will ensure long lasting results.

  • Return for annual touch-up sessions.
