- Do not scrub or pick your eyebrows
- Do not expose the area to sun or tanning beds! Must use hat if in the sun

First 24 hours
- If medical silicon is applied please leave the brows alone for up to 24 hours. Do not get the eyebrows wet. After 24 hours you must wash the silicon with a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water. After you wash them, KEEP THE EYEBROWS LIGHTLY GLOSSED.
First 1-2 weeks
Apply the ointment we provided three or four times a day for 10 days. Wash with water and pat dry.
What to expect after the procedure
- Slight swelling, thickness, and/or redness for one or two days
- It is normal to lose about 1/3 of the color during healing
- The color will be darker than normal immediately after the procedure
- After 6 days it will lighten while the body adjusts
- After 10 days it will show better and settle into its natural shade.
Things to know about the procedure
- When healed, the color will appear softer from being transferred to the epidermal layer.
- When healed, the brows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in the width of the stroke.
- Your skin is red under the pigment which will cause the color of the pigment to appear darker.
- There will be some swelling that will subside in a few days
- Swelling will be difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area.
- Exfoliation will start in a few days will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance of your eyebrows.
- Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size then you desire. This is all part of the process.
