distilled water (lymph fluid is the clear liquid that comes out from the skin). The amount
of lymph fluid varies for different people. Blotting and washing for some people, may be
required more than once. Apply the aftercare ointment after 72 hours after the procedure if there is no problem
after the patch test has passed. Days 1-7 Wash and Moisturize: Be gentle while washing your brows. Mix water and a neutral soap (such as Cetaphil) in your
hands, cup your hands with the soap and water mix, then splash onto your brows, lastly rinse the soap with just water using the same cupping method. Do not spray water directly onto your brow, just cup your hands and gently splash the water onto your brows. Once finished dry your brows right away with damp cotton pads. • Keep clean and DRY for the first 24 hours! Expect some swelling and redness.

goal. If you have oily skin, use the ointment every other day.
• The application of permanent cosmetics is a 2 step procedure. Do not judge your
procedure while in the healing stage. It will require a touch up. We will make any
adjustments needed at your follow up appointment. Nothing can be done prior to that
appointment to make sure the skin heals without any complications. ********** PLEASE Book your touch up appointment ASAP, touch ups must be booked 6-8

What will make your eyebrows fade?
● Oily skin - hair strokes will both fade and blur over time ● Frequent exercise - the salt in sweat will cause the pigment to purge from the skin
● Certain types of medications
● Acne medications and cream
● Youth - simply put, the younger/healthier you are, the faster your cells turn over
● Anti-aging skincare products
● Glycolic acids, Retin-A, exfoliants or anti-aging
● Lighter pigment - blondes fade faster than brunettes
The Healing Process Important Note:
Everyone’s healing time is different, some people’s brows may scab quickly and fall off quickly and some may take a bit longer to scab and fall off. Don’t worry if it’s taking more time and if you have patchy spots or if your newly microbladed brows have disappeared, this is totally normal.
Patience is key, your brows will heal and you will be beautiful.
