Permanent Brow Makeup POST-Care
Most of our PMU clients report that the healing process was much quicker and easier than they expected it to be! Will it look a bit bolder and more makeup-y at first? Absolutely. Will you need to take a week off and hide in your bed? Absolutely not!
There’s no need to take any time away from work or socializing during the healing process. It’s over before you know it, and truthfully, you may be the only one that even notices something’s off!
This easy healing is a result of us working shallow in the skin, only performing services on the right canvases, and providing you with specific, time-tested aftercare instructions.
WHAT TO EXPECT VISUALLY:
When you leave, your brows will look bigger due to swelling, much warmer in color, darker, and more defined. This is normal. On days 3-5, your brows will begin to lightly peel and this will last for a few days. When the peeling is done, the brows will look lighter, cooler in color, and softer around the edges. By the time the skin fully heals through each layer (4-6 weeks), the color will have blossomed back up a bit.
WHAT TO DO:
For 10 days or until peeling begins, cleanse twice daily with plain antibacterial soap, and follow with a thin layer of Aquaphor. When you’re cleansing, you want to be gentle, but do cleanse as if you’re trying to remove something. When you’re applying the Aquaphor, you’ll only need about the size of a grain of rice for both brows combined. If you have thick/coarse brow hair, be sure to press the Aquaphor through to the skin. Once the peeling begins, you should stop cleansing and applying Aquaphor.
WHAT TO AVOID UNTIL PEELING IS COMPLETELY DONE, OR FOR 10 DAYS IF NO PEELING OCCURS:
Saunas, steam rooms, tanning beds, tanning booths, excessive steam/sweating, makeup or skincare within 1”, picking, scratching, itching, sun, swimming, and spray tans.
WHAT TO AVOID INDEFINITELY:
Retinols/ acids/exfoliants within 1”, and unprotected sun exposure.
