Aftercare

  • Please note that a good aftercare is the key in order to have a satisfactory result. The 50% of the final result is related to a good aftercare routine.   The eyebrows immediately after the procedure will be up to 30% darker and up to 15% thicker than normal. Please be patient and follow the aftercare instruction as advised. It is strongly advised to get the touch-up session as suggested by the artist. The eyebrows are not considered finished without the touch-up.   
  • The customer is advised NOT to touch the eyebrows for 24 hours after the procedure.
  • After 24 hours the eyebrows should be cleaned gently 2 times a day with warm water and mild soap (baby shampoo) with clean cotton pads. The movement is done in the direction of hair growth, without forcing the skin. Apply a thin layer of post after care serum. ATTENTION! Do not apply excessive oil, this leads to the formation of scabs.
  • DO NOT apply Vaseline, Bepanthen, any antibiotic area, white petroleum, A & D ointments —> the risk of infection is very high 
  • Exposure to direct sunlight or any other form of UV rays are strictly prohibited for 1 month. If you must be out and about, wear a hat and sunscreen.
  • DO NOT apply any makeup (e.G. eyebrows powder, foundation, BB cream, etc…) in the eyebrow area for the next 2 weeks.
  • Access to the pool is NOT recommended for one week (chlorine can cause irritation to the eyebrows).
  • Sauna is NOT recommended for 1 week.
  • Fitness and any activities that require effort and sweat be delayed for the next 5 days.
  • During healing, small skin peels may appear. Their removal and their peeling, using any abrasive creams or sea salt are Strictly Prohibited. Do NOT pick any scares or dry areas that may form during the healing process, this stay cause you to lose color or damage your skin. Instead, apply some of the aftercare serum. 
  • Do NOT sleep with face-down for 2 weeks. The reason is that accidental pillow contact with the eyebrows in the healing process can remove the pigment in some areas.
  • As Pigment in the top layer of your skin exfoliates away and the skin opaque during the healing process it may seem that hair strokes have faded significantly. Do not worry! As your skin repairs over the initial 4-6 weeks it will become translucent revealing pigment below. If there are any gaps or pigment missing this is corrected at your touch-up appointment. 
  • The touch-up session is recommended between 4-8 weeks after the first procedure.
