Shading/Ombre Aftercare

The day of the treatment: 

Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.

​​

Days 1-10:

Gently cleanse your eyebrows with cotton pad and water twice a day (morning/night).


After cleansing, pat dry with a clean tissue and apply a very small amount of ointment 2 to 3 times a day. (make sure you don't over apply as this will cause additional pigment loss)

​​

AVOID:

  • Picking at them:  this could cause scarring and additional pigment loss.
  • Facials, botox, chemical treatments for at least 4 weeks.
  • Working out for at least 10 days. (sweating)
  • Direct sun exposure for the following 3 weeks.  Wear a hat for the first 2 weeks, then apply sunscreen.
  • Long hot showers and steam for the first 10 days.
  • Swimming.
  • Makeup over the treated area for 2 weeks.

WHAT TO EXPECT:


Day 1:  Brows will appear slightly thicker than we drew them and sometimes may appear uneven because they may be swollen; color looks darker and warmer due to the redness of the skin.


Days 2-4:  Brows are darker than what you've expected, and about 2 shades darker than what they will actually be once healed. Some redness may still persist on some clients.


Days 6-10:  Brows normally start peeling around day 5-6. Some clients slightly peel, while others may experience some scabbing. Once they start flaking, some areas of the eyebrows will fade more than others and as the pigment oxidizes it will start to darken up again over a 3-4-week period.


Days 28-40:  At this time, you'll actually start seeing the final result. People that heal quickly and young clients can see their final color by the 4-5-week mark, while adult women and people that heal slower will have to wait until week 6-7 to see the final color. We have no control over your body healing process, so please, be patient!
