Your brows will take 2 weeks to heal. Do not book if you have a vacation, special event, aesthetic treatment, or any circumstances where you will not be able to follow the after care instructions. This applies to initial and touchup sessions. Click here for aftercare.
Cash and Zelle are preferred methods of payment. Credit and debit cards are accepted with a additional 4% fee for processing.
Once daily, starting after the first 24 hours:
Wash brows quickly and gently with provided tattoo soap. Use cool water, air or gently pat dry
Apply provided aftercare cream once a day. Twice a day if skin is dry.
Wash around your brows when cleaning your face with other facial products. Do the best you can when washing your hair. If they get wet it's ok, try your best to not soak, steam, or get other products on them.
No makeup on your brows for 2 weeks, around is ok.
No pool/ jacuzzi/ soaking brows
No chemical peels or abrasive facial treatments for 4 weeks.
No sweating (try low impact workouts or activities that do not cause sweating), jacuzzi, pool, steam room, sun, or heat for 2 weeks.
Do not apply any anti aging/ acne products, or any other products with retinols, glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acids for 4 weeks. These products will speed up exfoliation of skin and pigment.
Day 1-3: Eyebrows may appear darker and bolder
Day 3-8: Flaking, slight scabbing, and itchiness is typical but may not occur
Day 8-12: Strokes may look lighter. This is natural and as the skin continues to exfoliate, the pigment will darken.
Day 12-14: Strokes will darken and healing should finish
NOTE: Healing process is different for everyone. The above timeline can vary. This is a very shallow tattoo, the skin on the face is a lot thinner than anywhere else on the body. You want to be extra delicate for 2 weeks with your new brows until the skin heals up over the pigment. Then you can go back to regular skin care routine.
Because this is a superficial tattoo, it is normal to loose a hair stroke, or have a section not take as well. At least half of my clients come back in for an initial touch up minimum of 5 weeks after the initial. Touch ups are completely up to your preference and if you are happy with the results.
Maintenance touch ups are suggested to keep them fresh. The typical touch up is 1.5 years after the initial. This is completely individual, some come back in a year, other 2+ years.
Pigment retention is NOT guaranteed. This service in NOT for everyone. Please read this list of contraindications and guidelines and text me for the fastest response if you have any questions.
