Happy Days, you finally got them done now let’s talk about how to look after them until they are healed.

Eyebrow tattooing aftercare does require you to slow down for 3-5 days post procedure to follow these simple instructions to achieve the best-healed results & to enjoy your brows 24/7 from now on.

After your procedure

Days 1-7

Minimise your exposure to the sun as we need skin to be able to heal.

Cleanse the area morning and night to the cleanser  provided;

Apply a “rice grain” amount of aftercare ointment with the cotton bud on the treated area.

Be sure not overly apply, as this will suffocate the skin and delay healing;

Never put ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Important reminders

-Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep;

-Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of colour;

-No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or micro-dermabrasion for  4 weeks;

-Avoid vigorous exercise for 2- 3 days, 1 week if possible;

-Avoid direct sun for tanning for 4 weeks;

-Awards topical make-up and sunscreen on the area while it heals;

-Do not pick or scratch the treated area;

-Do not swim for 7-10 days.

What to expect

Day 1 The area looks textured and slightly more dramatic in appearance. It will be tender and slightly swollen.

Day 2  The area looks very dark and bold, colour will be reddish in the area will be quite tender. 

Day 3-4 The tenderness will begin to subside;  the area will still look dark and thick; if you received Ombre brows they will begin to look as though they are “cracking”.

Day 5. The area is getting itchy and a layer of stabbing may be beginning to form; if you received Mickroblading, the fine hair strokes that were created may be hidden.

Day 5-7  Scabbing will form and begin to peel away. Don’t get scared as this is ok and totally normal.

Day 7-10 Scabs will flake away and the area will be way too light and perhaps even grey in colour and missing spots.

Day 14 – onwards  Healing is almost complete. The colour and definition of hair strokes/ shading will return. The colour will begin to even out and look natural.

Week 4-6 Book a Top Up to even out the final shape touches, colour and shade.
