The care you take during the healing process influences the healed result.
Disturbing the area carries a risk of infection which could lead to scarring.
Allow the colour to exfoliate naturally.
On the day of treatment:
30 minutes after the treatment
2 hours after treatment
In the evening after the treatment
- Use a drop of the PH Neutral Soap (provided in small bottle) with tepid water and cotton wool to bathe the brows.
- Pat dry – do not rub or wipe.
- Apply the thinnest possible layer of the PhiShield Aftercare product (provided in small tub). Use a clean cotton tip to keep the product sterile.
Morning following the treatment:
- Bathe the area as above.
- Apply PhiShield Aftercare as above.
Bathing prevents the wound from getting dirty and avoids excessive scab formation. If lymph is not removed, this can cause scabs which will compromise healing.
- Bathing is no longer necessary.
- Apply the thinnest possible layer of the PhiShield Aftercare product 3 to 5 times a day until healing is complete, usually around day 7.
Avoid applying to the treated area for 5 days. Makeup can be applied as normal to untreated areas.
Sun and tanning Beds
No direct exposure for seven days. We recommend using “total sun block” thereafter.
Allow healing to establish before recommencing sports or going into other wet or damp environments.
There may be some mild swelling for a few days. This is a normal part of the healing process. Ice packs and Ibuprofen post treatment can be beneficial.
This is a part of the healing process.
The pigment will appear slightly sharper and more obvious until around day 7, when exfoliation occurs and colour looks lighter and softer.
As explained, expect some unevenness of colour, which will be addressed in the inclusive re-touch appointment, to be attended 4 weeks later. If you do not attend your re-touch appointment within this time, we will assume you are happy with the results achieved. Any future bookings will be charged in line with our pricing schedule.
If you do not attend, or do not give sufficient notice (5 working days) to schedule your appointment, there will be a charge for any further treatment. Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment to ensure we have time to complete your treatment. Lateness may result in a rescheduled appointment at your cost.
Use a good sunscreen. Avoid the use of glycolic, Retinol or peels over the pigmented area as this will speed up the fading process. Colour Boosts are necessary anywhere between 6 and 12 months to maintain the best results.
Research shows it is safe to have an MRI if you have permanent makeup. If you require further information please visit www.nhs.uk.
If your brows look too heavy or dark immediately following treatment, remember our advice:
Your brows will initially be twice as dark and thick as the healed result in 7 days.
Do not try to lighten your brows as this will cause inflammation and/or infection.
If Inflammation or infection occurs please go immediately to your doctor.
Thank you for choosing Perfect Makeup. We recommend you come back in 6 to 12 months to keep your eyebrows looking fabulous.
