The Healing Process
Caring for your New Cosmetic Tattoo in its first 10 days:
In our experience, the best results are achieved by gently dabbing the treated area 5 times daily for the first 5 days (or until flaking begins), every 2-3 hours, with lukewarm water and a disposable, soft paper towel or cotton round - press lightly with a new disposable, soft paper-towel to dry. Once dry, apply a thin layer of the provided barrier cream, 2-4 times daily (am + pm) and avoid any activities that may result in any form of sweating. Avoid sun exposure, sweating, and do not apply any cosmetic products on the treated area - a clean and breathable area is key to a successful finished product.
What to Expect in the First 6-8 weeks:
Intensified color and swelling are part of the initial stages of healing. Be patient. Do not freak out. The intensity should regress within 7 days. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal scabbing and/or flaking may take place. Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process. The true vibrancy of your cosmetic tattoo is achieved between weeks 6 and 8, in the time leading up to then you’ll experience a slight loss in colour before it begins to regenerate as your skin naturally exfoliates.
The Healed Results
Caring for my New Brows
You made it! Celebrate by sleeping in a little longer each day and enjoy your newfound free time. To preserve your completely healed results; apply sunscreen regularly, hats and larger sunglasses are encouraged, and avoid over exposure to the sun. Chlorine, glycol acid, microdermabrasion, and other cosmetic products can lighten the pigment with repeated use. When getting any procedures, whether it be cosmetic or not, done to your face please let the individual performing the service know about your microbladed brows and continue at your own discretion. We are not responsible for any changes made to your brows in its reaction to any additional services you may receive.
