Swelling and redness around the brows are very normal. However, if you are excessively swollen with one or both eyes very puffy and unable to open, or redness that does not subside by about day 4, contact the studio and go to urgent care to make sure you aren't having an allergic reaction or possible infection. The sooner you are seen and treated, long term problems can be avoided. Your brows can still heal properly. This occurrence is very rare, but can happen.
*If you have a liquid Band-Aid applied at the end of your appointment: Gently wash your brows 3 days after your appointment with a gentle cleanser, lukewarm water, and a clean q-tip. Gently pat them dry with a clean tissue and leave them alone until 1 week following your procedure.
*(If water gets onto your brows when showering, gently pat dry with a clean tissue after, but do not get your brows soaked, or allow the shower water to directly flow onto the brows.)
Starting 7 days after your procedure, gently wash your brows DAILY in the same manner as day 3 until your next appointment,
*If you have Balm applied at the end of your appointment: Gently Pat dry with a clean tissue as needed for the first day of your procedure. Keep completely dry for 7 days. On the 8th day, start to gently cleans daily with a gentle cleanser and q-tip with lukewarm water. Your brows will heal very quickly-approximately 2 weeks time.
*If you have microbladed hair strokes or hair strokes and shading: Your aftercare balm or oil can be used starting on day 7 AS NEEDED. If you are feeling tight, dry, flaky, or itchy, you can use the balm throughout the day to help with the side effects of the healing process. If your brows feel fine after cleansing, leave them alone.
*If you have a Powder Brow (no hair strokes, just shading): You may start to use a small amount of balm, about the size of a grain of rice, up to twice a day, starting the day after your procedure if they feel tight or dry. Be sure to apply with clean fingers or a clean q-tip/lint free applicator.
*Avoid all skincare products within 1" of the brow, and no retinol or glycolic acid on the forehead at all until healed.
*Avoid excessive sweating and dirt for 10 days following your procedure to avoid an infection.
*Wear a large hat or sunglasses to protect the ink during the healing process.
*DO NOT apply makeup or sunless tanner to the healing brows for 4 full weeks! If your brows become itchy, you may tap on them with clean fingers. Avoid touching your brows with unwashed hands, and DO NOT PICK at any flakes or dry skin. It will naturally fleck off gently during cleansing.
*Avoid submerging your face in the pool or ocean, and avoid saunas or hot steamy showers while healing.
*Sunscreen can be used once fully healed and is encouraged to prolong the inks longevity,
*Please notify your technician if you are having an MRI that you have permanent makeup.

Moderate swelling is very normal directly after having a lips done. A clean cold compress can be applied for the first few hours following the procedure and the next morning if needed. You may also need to blot your lips with a clean tissue for the first few hours following the procedure to remove any clear lymph that comes to the surface. Icing and blotting will help to cut down onn potential scabbing. If you are sore nfrom the procedure, you may take ibuprofen.

ATTENTION: Depending on your desired lip color goals, you may need more than the 2 sessions included in my pricing. Lips can only absorb and retain a small amount of ink each session due to the nature of lip skin.
*The color will feel too bright during the beginning of the healing process, and your lips will feel very tight and dry. The color will then fade quite a bit, and settle down very quickly. Just hydrate, keep them clean, and let them heal.

*Keep the area clean and open to the air. Do not cover with a band-aid or anything else. You should not be touching the area at all, but if you need to, it should be done with freshly washed hands.
*Clean by blotting the area with saline 3 to 4 times a day using a paper towel or gauze. NO ICE.
Do NOT soak the treated area in water. You can shower as normal, but keep the water from spraying you directly on the brows. It is best to keeep them dry, but if they get wet, gently pat dry with a clean tissue. Blot with saline immediately following a shower.
