24 hours before your appointment you need to avoid smoking ,alcohol , caffeine , asprin, and blood thinners, if you currently take blood thinners you will need to check with your physician and have permission from him or her to be off of your blood thinner for 24 hours prior to your permanent/ Semi permanent makeup appointment . It is not recommended to have any type of permanent makeup done while pregnant or breast feeding , if you are considering it please consult with your physician . If you have received chemotherapy treatments we must wait six months and have written permission from your physician to do permanent makeup .
Aftercare is a critical step for any Permanent makeup treatment. Permanent makeup procedures are a two step process that requires a follow up procedure in six to eight weeks to implant more color and fill in any areas that have flaked off or faded. Following these guidelines will help ensure your color has retention, and to help improve your follow up treatment.
- Wash Morning and night for 7 days with a gentle cleanser such as (Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser) !
- Wash within 4 hours of getting your brows done. ( Please do not wash in the shower)
- Look in the mirror to wash your brows to make sure you are washing extra gentle. Use a new Qtip each time and gently wipe a small amount of cleanser with a gentle stroke in the direction of the hair growth, no circles or hard rubbing. Wash with warm or cool water, and pat dry with a clean paper towel.
- Keep Dry: (besides washing) until your brows are completely healed with no scabbing or flaking this typically takes 10 days.
- Until your brows are completely healed at 10 days clients will still need to keep brows dry in the shower… Steamy hot showers will cause the pores to open and scabs to soften, so please be aware and cautious, no extra steamy hot showers , and please be cautious of shampoo and condition running down onto the face and brows, this will cause color discoloration!
- NO excessive sweating
- No Sauna, hot tub, pool , ocean !
- Do not Pick, Rub, or scratch scabs! Avoid sleeping on face
- Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks
- No anti aging or acne products on your brows ever! Will cause fading very quickly. This is especially with anything that has chemical exfolliants such as Retinal, Glycolic acid, Salisylic Acid, and Lactic acid .
- Remember to use your healing balm 3 times a day and apply with a Qtip ! If client is oily , only use 2 times a day. Use your healing balm for 10 days.
- Do not try to lighten your brows or use anything on them other then your Cetaphil wash, water and healing balm , such as Aquaphore, or Tina Davies balm during your 10 day healing process .
