Before booking an appointment for permanent makeup :
1) Make sure you are a candidate for Powder Brows:
2) 24 Hrs prior to your appointment, you must stop the use of any alcohol, caffeine, or any pain medications. These will cause your blood to thin out and will cause excessive bleeding while getting a tattoo. Unless prescribed, I suggest to avoid all before coming in. Excessive bleeding will result in the ink not staying in your skin and you will require an additional touch up at $125. If you decide to drink caffeine the morning of, I suggest to drink lots of water to help dilute the caffeine in your system.
3) Start drinking water the day before your appointment. Hydrated skin will allow the ink to absorb better and allows for easier cleanup. Overall, it makes my job easier and it helps you get better results.
If you were able to check off on all of these, then you are a candidate for powder brows. If any conditions apply to you but you would still like to continue, please have a doctors note prepared. A consent form will be required to be filled out prior to coming in.
First 2 hours-Any redness or irritation will decrease.
Day 1-3 - Avoid sweating and all water contact on new eyebrows
Day 2-3 - Brows will appear slightly darker than the first day.
Day 1-14 - With a Q-tip, apply a paper thin layer of the provided vitamin A&D ointment every 3 to 4 hours.
Day 5 - These are NOT the true results of the eyebrow tattooing, as the pigment has not yet peeled completely. Once the skin starts healing or flaking, the color will fade considerably, as it heals beneath the skin.
Day 6-7 - Color may appear very light, as your skin is resurfacing. The color will reappear slowly
Day 10-14 - Eyebrows are nearly fully healed
5-6 weeks - Final color will be apparent and eyebrows should be fully healed.
DO NOT Pick, peel, or scratch as this could cause scarring or removal of color
DO NOT Touch the affected area except for applying vitamin A&D ointment
DO NOT Be alarmed if it appears that most of the color is flaking off – this is normal healing.
Avoid for 14 days while healing:
Tanning, working out, sweating, swimming, saunas, jacuzzi, facials & massages (laying on your face), wearing makeup, skin peels, products with Retinol, touching your eyebrows or sleeping on your face. Harsh soaps or face creams. Your brows have an open wound and you must take care of it as such. Any bacteria can cause an infection and will require a doctor visit and most likely a touch up afterwards.
*the sun can cause pigment to fade. Always apply sun block on pigmented area after you are done healing*
