Always wash your hands thoroughly prior to having any contact wit your new tattoo. The less contact with the healing tattoo the better
Your semi permanent makeup will look very dark and intense the first few days and will gradually lighten. There may be a point where you feel that it isn’t even there. Trust the process, a lot of people have pigment resurface weeks after!!! It takes a full 6-8 weeks to see how your skin resurfaces.
Some people prefer the “Bolder” look in the beginning. If that is you, keep in mind that for the second appointment, we can go darker.
Keep eyebrow area dry. We prefer the dry method, use oil given at appointment at night only if needed after 5 to 7 days.
Avoid makeup on/around eyebrow area for at least a week, preferably longer.
Do not use an exfoliator on your face.
Use gentle soap, around your eyebrows. Cetaphil works great.
Do not pick the scabs!
Do not exercise or do any activity that will make you sweat a lot for at least a week.
Do not thread or wax the area.
Sun exposure can and will affect the semi permanent makeup.
Any changes necessary will be done at your follow up appointment. Your new brows are not complete until after the second appointment.
If you have a reaction to this service. contact a physician.
Leave bandaged for 2 to 3 hours. Once home wash with warm water, Do Not Scrub! Do not wash with soaps at this time.
The next 3 days wash with warm water only to prevent scabbing. Your body at this time will be pushing out what is doesn't need from the tattooed area as it heals. If not washed off, it can dry and scab up, causing discomfort and possibly pull the pigment. Peeling on the other hand, is normal and is expected since a new layer of skin will form days after the skin is tattooed.
Apply a thin layer of Aquaphor or Basatrasin on the freshly tattooed area. A small amount of these products should be applied once in the morning and at night, or after each time the area is washed.
Make sure any bra or shirt that touches the area is clean and not skin tight! If able to, wearing loose garments or no bra is highly recommended to prevent friction on the healing area for the first week. Basically let that skin breathe!
Around day 4/5 you may start using a gentle cleanser like cetaphil to wash. Again do not soak area! Just wash and rinse.
No lotions and soaps with perfume should touch the area for 10 days
Once the area beginnings to peel, DO NOT PICK! this will possibly pull the pigment and cause scarring.
Avoid pools, hot tubes, bathtubs, basically submerging the healing tattoo in any type of body of water for ten days.
The less you touch it, the better it will heal.
The pigment used is a cosmetic pigment, it will be its darkest color the first 3 days. Once healed, color is normally 30 to 40 percent lighter. A follow up appointment can always darken the area.
For Breast Cancer Survivors, the course of treatments you have undergone may effect the healing. Its not uncommon for it takes several treatments to achieve desire results.

If you dye your hair, have your last color session be 7 days way from your scheduled appointment. If you have any hair dye stains on your scalp we will have to cancel your appointment.
If you wear your head shaved or very short, Please have it cut or shaved the day prior. Its highly recommended for those with male pattern baldness to shave you head for the appointment. This reduces the shock of the initial result. It also is easier to see any scars that we may or may not want to cover
