Permanent Makeup Brow Aftercare

Eyebrow permanent make-up is a procedure that can mimic the appearance of the hair in the brow line. Anyone who desires more fullness of the brows, especially those who use a pencil will love the procedure, saving them up to thirty minutes each day, enabling them to go swimming, exercise or wipe their foreheads without the embarrassment of no eyebrows.

Post Procedure

NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup, lotions or pencil on the eyebrows for 10 days. 

  •  Expect slight swelling, thickness, and/or redness, for 1 – 2 days following the procedure.  A sealant will be applied immediately after the procedure to protect your brows. You can begin applying Grape Seed Oil lightly after 72 hours once a day either in the morning or evening for the remaining 4 -10 days. When you take a shower try not to get the brows wet. If you get them slightly wet just pat them dry very gently with a clean towel.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.

  • Regular makeup can be worn immediately after your procedure, just not on the treated area until healed.  Absolutely  NOTHING on the makeup, lotions, pencil….etc. for 10 days.   After the 10 days, use a gentle cleanser to clean them. Avoid scrubbing them for 1 month.

  • The eyebrows will begin to soften up after a few days. Hair strokes appear crisp and bold at first, but will soften up as the tissue heals.

  • It is very common to have areas fade more so than others.  This is part of the healing process and will be treated at the recommended touch up appointment. Previously done eyebrows may take 1-3 treatments to achieve the desired result

Healing Schedule

Days 1 & 2:  The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed. Your  skin is red under the pigment, which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will  cause excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result.  New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appears darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process. 

Day 3:  Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.

Day 4:  The skin begins to flake, peeling from the outside edges first.

Day 5:  Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies.
