General Micropigmentation procedures are affected by the “canvas” (your skin) that they are performed on. Lifestyle, medications, smoking, metabolism, facial surgery and other procedures, and age of skin all contribute to fading. The initial application is always applied conservatively because every person’s skin is different, and the final color can only be precisely determined and adjusted during a follow-up appointment after the initial application has fully healed. Because of this, the micropigmentation process is not complete after the initial procedure. In all cases, a follow-up appointment is required approximately 6-8 weeks after your initial application to fine tune and ensure the best result.

Though rare, infection is possible. If you see signs of infection such as persistent increased redness or swelling, fever, drainage, or oozing, contact your doctor IMMEDIATELY.

Eyebrows

● After 5-6 hours following your procedure, cleanse the brows with the aftercare cleanser provided, then immediately apply a very thin coat of healing ointment.

● Continue gently cleansing and applying ointment 2-3 times per day for 3-4 days (or until all scabbing/crust has come off).

● When the area starts to flake, leave it. Do not pick, peel or pull on the skin.

 ● Avoid sweating such as from vigorous exercise for 1 week post-procedure.

● For at least one week post-procedure or until healing is complete (whichever is longer):

○ Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the affected area(s).

○ Do not scrub or pick treated areas.

○ Do not use peroxide or Neosporin on treated areas.

○ Do not expose area to direct sun or to tanning beds.

○ Avoid exposing the area excessive moisture or humidity, such as: facials, swimming,  whirlpools (hot tubs), saunas, steam rooms, and steamy showers.

● Do not resume any method of eyebrow hair removal or coloration for at least two weeks.

● Avoid eyebrow tinting within 48 hours before or two weeks after the procedure.

● Avoid Retin-A, moisturizers, glycolic acids, exfoliants and anti-aging products at all times (not just during healing) on all micropigmented areas. These can cause pigments to fade and lighten prematurely.

● Pigments will slowly fade over time according to one’s metabolism, skin type, sun exposure, medication, facial surgery, and smoking. Schedule maintenance visits as needed to keep it looking fresh.

● Periodic touch ups will ensure longer lasting results.

●Seek professional medical care for unexpected or allergic reactions.
