3 Tips To Make Your Brows Last
1. Avoid Direct Exposure For 2-10 Days
Direct contact from things like facial moisturizers, any facials soaps, running water, or your makeup should be avoided. Taking baths is ideal given the risk of direct contact is limited by that isn’t always possible so when showering, just be sure to shield your face directly from the source of the water. For this healing time period, try to limit your showers to about 5 minutes to avoid excessively steam build up which could adversely affect your brows. When washing your face outside the shower, just be gentle around the treated area and follow the post-care instructions which are as follows:
- Gently rinse your eyebrows each morning and night with water and a gentle soap (ex. Dial, baby shampoo, Cetaphil). With a very light touch, use your clean fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 5-10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue or let air dry. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
2. Don’t Pick!
Do not under any circumstances pick at your brows. You may be tempted but this is all a part of the healing process. You may notice scarring on the treated area but this is to be expected. Accompanying this may be varying levels of itchiness that come along with it. This is one of the more pivotal moments after a client gets the service and where we tend to see people deviate from their post-care instructions. It may seem relatively harmless, but it could affect how your brows heal. The better you take care of your brows and follow aftercare instructions, we typically have clients report that any symptoms post-procedure tend to be more mild.
3. Shield Your Brows
Direct sunlight should be avoided where possible. Naturally you can still go outside, but things like tanning booths while your brows heal will be counterproductive. If you will be laying out, just be sure to shield your brows from direct sunlight using a hat.
