Proper aftercare is a very important aspect of the long term success, effectiveness, health, and overall satisfaction with your new ombré powder brow tattoo. It is very important to follow those instructions in order to achieve the best possible results from your permanent makeup procedure. Included here are general permanent makeup aftercare instructions that will help limit any infection or problems, and assure a healthy and successful healing as quickly as possible.
NOTE: All tattoos carry the inherent risk of infection and/or allergic reaction, so if swelling, pain, bruising persists for more than a few days, it may be a sign of infection, so be sure to contact your doctor right away. If you experience excessive itching, swelling, blistering or any other complications post-procedure, STOP using the aftercare product and contact me immediately, you may be allergic to the aftercare product.
BROWS (ombré powder, combo or microblading)
DO NOT TOUCH THE HEALING PIGMENTED AREA WITH YOUR FINGERS. THEY MAY HAVE BACTERIA ON THEM AND CREATE AN INFECTION
For the first 24 hours: Lymph fluids may appear on the surface of the brow. Check your brows every 15-30 minutes and take a clean/dry tissue and dab gently over the area.
After 24 hours: Minimal contact with water, if they get wet, be sure to gently pat dry. Resume normal face washing with a gentle cleanser, but avoid scrubbing your brow area just gently wash around them.
For the first 24-72 hours: Brows will be the darkest at this point! They WILL lighten!
Days 2-10: Continue applying a very, very thin layer of the ointment I provided twice a day or as needed for the remaining 7-8 days, or until you are done peeling. Discontinue applying intent after peeling has completed.
To clean, always use a new, dry q-tip to wipe off the existing ointment that are on your brows, dampen another q-tip and with just a little bit of water and gently wipe clean. Pat dry with a clean/dry tissue and reapply the ointment.
If slight crust appears on the pigmented surface, this is normal. Do not force removal by picking or scratching! You will remove pigment along with the crusting and this can creat scarring.
You may begin to see peeling on or around Day 4 or 5. This is a normal part of the healing process on some clients.
Keep showers quick and avoid facing the shower head.
Sleep on your back to avoid pressure on your brows.
Do not apply makeup over healing areas. Remember your brows are healing and needs to be free of bacteria.
Avoid excessive sweating/exercise, sun, saunas, and swimming (including chlorinated pools or jacuzzis, the ocean, or recreational bodies of water).
Avoid facials 6 weeks after your procedure.
Use a broad spectrum sunblock after area has healed to slow fading.
Follow up appointments can be scheduled by 6 weeks after the initial procedure. New procedures are sometimes a two-step process and final results are sometimes not determined until the follow up visit is completed. Do not judge your procedure while it is in the healing process as it may require a follow up.
Any operations such as botox, facial laser treatments or chemical peels will affect the pigment from the procedure and the overall appearance. Please notify me prior to performing those services.
