Short-Term Care

For the next 6-7 days, clean the treated area daily. We recommend using the gentle cleanser INK SOAP that is provided after your service. After gently cleaning your treated area, you will apply the provided healing cream.
After treatment your scalp will begin to form tiny scabs where the needle pierced the skin. Under no circumstances should you touch, pick at, or disturb your scalp while it’s healing.
Do not exercise or do any activity that will cause you to sweat. Avoid direct sunlight as the UV Rays can affect the pigment while healing.
On day 7, gently use water to rinse the scalp. The next day you can use a mild Shampoo.
You can now resume your normal activities if your scalp has healed.

Long Term Care

Be sure to apply a sunblock to your scalp every day to keep pigment from fading.
To remove dead skin cells, use an exfoliating cleanser to keep the scalp in a healthy condition. Any moisturizer for the scalp is recommended to avoid dryness.
It is not recommended to use products that contain alcohol as this is a quick drying agent for the skin. Avoid products that contain SD Alcohol, denatured alcohol, or isopropyl alcohol.

What to Expect: Semi-Permanent Services

What to Expect: Semi-Permanent Services

Day 1:

You may experience redness; Depending on the pigment used you may also see an orange cast where the pigment is placed. This is due to oxidization and should disappear in a few hours.

Day 2:

The pigment in the brow area may appear visibly darker than the initial color of the first day. This is a result of the natural oxidation process that takes place in the skin once pigment has been implanted. The pigment is reacting slowly with oxygen in the air, turning it darker.

Day 3:

The skin in the brow area should form a crust-like appearance. You should continue to place a moderate amount of ointment on your brows. Avoid over applying the healing ointment.

Day 4-8:

The skin in the brow area will continue to crust. During this time, you should experience shedding of the previously formed crust. Please do not pick at the scabbing skin, instead allow it to naturally shed. IMPORTANT: If you peel the crust prematurely, you take the risk of losing the pigment behind it or minor scarring.

Day 9+:

The crust should have completely shed and the pigment behind will look very faint. DO NOT PANIC!! The color will return gradually in the weeks to come. The average client will see a return by week two. However, the average healing time is four weeks.

Day 30:

Your brows should appear 30% lighter, and with a soft powdery finish. Please be advised that these are semi-permanent brows and will gradually fade. Your lifestyle and skin type determines the longevity of the brows. Avoid direct sun exposure, place sunscreen daily and enjoy your new brows!
