NO BOTOX FOR 1 WEEK  PRIOR TO PROCEDURE

STOP USING RETIN-A OR AHA PRODUCTS 72 HOURS  PRIOR TO PROCEDURE

DO NOT DRINK TOO MUCH COFFEE ON THE DAY OF THE PROCEDURE

FEEL FREE TO COME IN WITH YOUR BROW MAKEUP ON SO WE CAN SEE YOUR EVERYDAY LOOK YOU PREFER.  PICTURES OF SHAPES AND COLORS OF BROWS ARE WELCOME.  WE WILL WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE THE PERFECT BROW!

 

PROCEDURE AFTER CARE:

BASICALLY THERE IS NO DOWNTIME.  SOME REDNESS MAY OCCUR FOR A SHORT WHILE AFTER PROCEDURE, USUALLY 30 MIN. TO 45 MIN.

KEEP IN MIND THAT EVERY PERSON IS DIFFERENT AND EVERY PERSON WILL HAVE DIFFERENT RESULTS TO VARYING DEGREES.  SOME PEOPLE WILL ONLY NEED ONE FOLLOW UP, WHILE OTHERS MAY NEED SEVERAL.  YOU MAY HAVE REDNESS FOLLOWING THE PROCEDURE, THIS IS NORMAL.

 FOR 2 WEEKS FOLLOWING YOUR PROCEDURE, YOU WILL NEED TO DO A FEW THINGS TO HELP ENSURE THAT YOUR PROCEDURE HEALS IN AS WELL AS POSSIBLE.

 ***YOU MUST PROTECT THE AREA FROM OVER EXPOSURE TO SUN, HEAT, SWEAT, EXCESSIVE MOVEMENT OR EXTREME EXERTION!  DO NOT RUB, PICK, OR SCRUB OR ATTEMPT TO ALTER THE COLOR IN ANY WAY!! 

****NO MOISTURE! NO WATER! NO SWEAT OR SUN FOR 7 DAYS!

DAY 1

DO NOT TOUCH FOR 3 HOURS AFTER PROCEDURE.  AFTER 3 HOURS YOU CAN VERY GENTLY WASH THE BROWS WITH FINGERTIPS USING A MILD SOAP SUCH AS CETAPHIL TOREMOVE TRACES OF GOO WITH AN ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP.  PAT DRY WITH PAPER TOWEL THEN APPLY A THIN LAYER OF TATTOO GOO.  THE POINT IS TO NOT LET THE BROWS DRY OUT COMPLETELY AND LET THE BODY HEAL. IF LEFT ALONE THE FLUIDS WILL DRY UP AND FORM A SCAB, WHICH WILL BE MORE UNCOMFORTABLE AND MAY PULL OUT YOUR COLOR.  IF THE EYEBROWS WEEP FLUID AND DRY IN PATCHES JUST DAB A CLEAN MOIST COMPRESS GENTLY BUT FIRMLY INTO THE TATOOS.  I RECOMMEND COTTON ROUNDS WHICH HAVE BEEN MOISTENED (NOT SOAKED) WITH PURIFIED WATER AND A LITTLE BIT OF ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP ( EG; GENTLE FACIAL CLEANSER LIKE CETAPHIL OR BURTS BEES IS OK)   USE ONCE AND THEN TOSS. LIGHTLY PAT DRY WITH CLEAN PAD AND USING A NEW Q TIP, REAPPLY A SMALL DAB OF HEALING BALM TO THE BROWS.

MAKE SURE TO APPLY A LIGHT LAYER OF TATTOO GOO AT LEAST 5X/DAY  TO BROWS FOR AT LEAST 5-7 DAYS.  DO NOT GOOP ON THE  HEALING BALM!

AVOID PROLONGED CONTACT WITH WATER,HEAT, STEAM OR SUN.  NEVER THE LET SHOWER RUN OVER YOUR TATTOOED AREA.  TRY NOT TO GET WET.

DO  NOT WEAR MAKE UP ON OR AROUND THE TREATED AREA, THIS IS AN OPEN WOUND AND DOING SO CAN CAUSE INFECTION.

USE DISPOSABLE APPLICATORS.  NO CREAMS, LOTIONS NEAR THE TREATED AREAS.

 YOU CAN USE A COOL GEL PACK (ONCE PER HOUR).  USE CLEAN PAPER TOWEL TO BUFFER THE TEMPERATURE.  THE COOLNESS WILL HELP REDUCE SWELLING.  APPLY FRESH PAPER TOWEL AFTER EACH APPLICATION.  NO DIRECT ICE!!

 STOP BLOTTING 30 MINUTES BEFORE BEDTIME.

 APPLY **A THIN LAYER  OF TATTOO GOO BEFORE YOU SLEEP.  ALLOW SOME DRYING TIME TO AVOID TRAPPING WATER UNDER THE OINTMENT!  ONCE DRY USE A FRESH Q TIP TO DIP OUT A BIT OF TATTOO GOO AND APPLY TO TATTOOED AREA.

APPLY TATTOO GOO AT LEAST 5X/DAY  DIRECTLY ON THE TATTOO.  NEVER APPLY MORE THAN A THIN LAYER AS YOUR SKIN NEEDS TO BREATHE TOO.

 (IF OILY SKIN APPLY OINTMENT 3X DAILY.   IF DRY SKIN APPLY 6-7 TIMES/DAY.

 

DAY 2&3

DAY 2-  REDUCE BLOTTING TO EVERY 2-3 HOURS { IF NEEDED}

DAY3-DISCONTINUE BLOTTING (WOUNDS SHOULD BE CLOSED NOW)

MAKE SURE SKIN IS DRY BEFORE APPLYING OINTMENT.  BY NOW, THE TATTOOED AREA WILL START TO FEEL DRY AND CHAPPED AND MAY ITCH.   REMEMBER TO APPLY ONLY A THIN LAYER OF TATTOO GOO.  DO NOT GOOP IT ON AS TOO MUCH WILL PREVENT OXYGEN TO REACH THE WOUNDED SKIN.

 

 DAYS 4-10

 YOU MAY NOTICE SOME FLAKING AS DEAD SKIN CELLS BEGIN TO SLOUGH OFF.  THIS IS NORMAL.  REMEMBER YOU MAY LOSE ROUGHLY ANYWHERE FROM 20%-70% OF THE INITIAL IMPLANTED COLOR!! DON’T WORRY-MORE OR LESS COLOR WILL BE ADDED ON SUBSEQUENT VISITS TO ADJUST YOUR PREFERENCES.  REMEMBER THIS IS A LAYERING PROCESS AND I TAKE THINGS SLOWLY BUT DELIBERATELY TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED EYEBROW.

 THE STROKES/COLOR THAT INITIALLY LOOK CRISP AND BRIGHT WILL SOFTEN AS THE NEW SKIN STARTS TO GROW OVER THEM.  IT WILL LOOK AS IF A GRAY MILKY SUBSTANCE IS COVERING THEM.  THIS IS JUST NEW SKIN GROWING AROUND THE PIGMENT.  THIS MILKINESS WILL SUBSIDE OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

 ITCHING MAY OCCUR DURING THE HEALING PROCESS!! IF IT DOES, JUST GENTLY TAP THE ITCH TO HELP RELIEVE IT.  BENEDRYL MAY HELP AS WELL

 SOME OR MOST OF THE COLOR MAY HAVE FALLEN OFF BY NOW.  THIS IS NORMAL.  PLEASE DON’T BE TOO DISAPPOINTED. REMEMBER IF YOUR SKIN TAKES A LOT OF COLOR YOU’D BE THANKFUL THAT YOUR BROWS AREN’T TOO DARK.  DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH COLOR IS LEFT WILL BE A DETERMINING FACTOR IN HOW MUCH I APPLY ON YOU SUBSEQUENT VISITS.

 WHATEVER HAPPENS, JUST REMEMBER THAT IT MAY TAKE MULTIPLE SESSIONS TO ARRIVE AT YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

 ADJUSTMENTS CANNOT BE MADE UNTIL COMPLETELY HEALED.  COMPLETE HEALING TAKES AT LEAST 4-6 WEEKS.
