Enhancing Beauty One Pretty Face at a Time™
BEFORE/AFTERCARE FOR YOUR EYEBROW EMBROIDERY
PRE-POST PROCEDURE CARE
Micro Pigment Implantation, otherwise known as Permanent Cosmetics is a two or more step process. The results cannot be determined until after the touch up applications. We perform this service to the best of our ability, and to achieve the desired results, your cooperation is required in the following instructions.
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Do NOT take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
Do not work out the day of the procedure as the body heat expands the pores.
You MUST be off Retin-A or Retinols for 7 days prior to your appointment and avoid using on or around the area for 30 days after. If used before 30 days, it can cause the pigments to fade prematurely. If you resume the Retin-A or Retinols after the 30 days, please know that the continued use will fade your permanent makeup prematurely.
IF YOU USE BOTOX, IT SHOULD BE PERFORMED EITHER 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED PROCEDURE OR 2 WEEKS AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE.
You have to be off Accutane for 1 year. NO Exceptions!
If you have oily skin, your results WILL appear softer (eyebrows can look solid) in appearance and may require additional procedures.
Dark Skin types please note that your permanent makeup will not appear as bold as lighter skin types. (Indian, African American, Filipino, etc.)
Avoid alcohol or caffeine prior to the procedure, this will minimize any oozing or swelling after the procedure.
Getting a procedure while on your menstrual cycle can make you hyper-sensitive at the procedure site.
If there are any blemishes, pimples, active cold sores, irritation of the skin of any kind, moles or other skin imperfections in or around the area of the procedure, We WILL NOT be able to do the procedure until the blemish or area of concern is gone or the mole is removed and healed.
PERMANENT MAKEUP & SKIN NEEDLING WILL NOT BE PERFORMED IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING!!!!
Day 1-3: A barrier cream will be applied after the procedure. This will protect the brows and help them heal. The cream lasts for up to 5 days. No special care is needed while the barrier cream is on. Just be sure not to scrub the area, and only use water on it to rinse it off. DO NOT PICK!!!!!
Day 4-7: Apply Grapeseed Oil (can be bought at Publix in the oil isle) 1-3 times a day after the barrier cream has come off. This keeps the area hydrated and promotes healing.
Avoid for 1 week:
· Soaps, facial cleansers, any creams on pigmented areas
· Washing pigmented area with soap
· Chlorine pools
· Retin-A, or any active ingredients on pigmented areas (they pull the color out)
· Makeup on pigmented area for 5 days, including non-allergenic
· Hot, steamy, long showers
· Sun on pigmented areas
· Jacuzzi or saunas
DO NOT USE ANYTHING OTHER THAN GRAPESEED OIL OR A&D OINTMENT ON YOUR EYEBROWS!!! NOTHING!!!
Do NOT NOT NOT use Neosporin! It has a lot of zinc in it and it also contains petrolatum which promotes the healing too fast and it helps pull the ink particles out of your skin instead of allowing your body to lock in the ink at the cellular level.
After the first few days, if you truly feel that you need to clean the tattoo with soap, use something incredibly mild, such as Cetaphil. I recommend not using soap on the tattoo the first five days. To clean, simply rinse with water GENTLY—no scrubbing or rubbing.
For 1 to 2 days after treatment, the procedure area may experience the following symptoms:
3. Dryness and itching
For at least 7 days after a procedure or until the area appears to be healed, include the following daily routine:
1. Apply the provided moisturizing balm to the area at least 3 times a day using a cotton swab. Wash hands before and after application and use a clean cotton bud each time to avoid infection.
2. Use a gentle face cleanser and avoid the treatment areas.
3. If the area does get wet, pat dry very gently with a clean towel or tissue.
