  • It’s important not to get the brows wet during the healing process (7-10 days).
  • How to shower: Use a thick layer of Vaseline to protect the brows from water during the healing time. When applying Vaseline, the following procedure is done each morning and night or before a shower or workout for the full five days: Apply the product, leave it on for five to ten minutes (or while in shower), then with a tissue or dry cotton wipe gently across each brow once to get off the excess goo, then dab each brow till it is dry, after a couple of minutes dab again to ensure that nothing is left on the brow. However, starting on day three when scab starts to appear, do not wipe-only dab till dry, you must be gentle, do not pull off the scabs prematurely. Your brows should remain dry all day and all night. Following this procedure will ensure the formation of thin scabs thus more color retention. Keep out of the sun for seven days. Then after seven days wear sunscreen to aid in the longevity of your tattoo.
  • As instructed apply the ointment with freshly washed hands or a Q-tip. Never touch the procedure area without washing your hands immediately before.
  • It is very important to keep the brows covered with ointment while in the shower or during a strenuous workout to prevent moisture from penetrating. Remove ointment per above instructions.
  • Water or any other liquids cannot come in contact with the treated area for 7 days, even a small drop will expand a wound and a scab will appear. No sweating for 2 weeks including heavy exercise, running, and heavy workout or swimming.
  • Wash eyebrows gently 4 hours after procedure with antibacterial soap. Pat the area dry with a paper towel, then apply a thin layer of coconut oil. The point is to not let them dry completely. Wash 2-4 times daily.
  • Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it is ready the pigment underneath it can be pulled out.
  • Do not use any makeup on the brows for at least 7-10 days.
  • No sunbathing or tanning, facials, botex, microdermabrasion, laser or chemical treatments for 4 weeks after procedure.
  • After the procedure is completely healed, you may go back to your regular cleansing and makeup routine. Avoid scrubbing the area. Use sun block after the procedure area is healed to protect from sun fading.

Failure to follow aftercare instructions may result in infections, pigment loss or discoloration.

Caution: If the skin around the eyebrows breaks out in a heat rash, small pimples, this is usually a reaction to the numbing solution and should go away by itself in a couple of weeks, don’t pick. Please call us immediately (604-224-4314) if this occurs so the technician (Gisele) can take note of the reaction and follow up to ensure this is not a more serious situation.
