Before & After Care
Prior to your permanent cosmetic enhancement think about the look that you wish to achieve. We ensure that the correct colors and styles are chosen for you, however you are part of the decision making process.
Permanent cosmetic enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results, you will be REQUIRED to return for at least one touch up procedure four to six weeks after the initial procedure.
The color intensity will be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. Brows will fade 40-50% and become softer as the skin heals. The healing process can take up to fourteen days.
- Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, you are advised not to make social plans on the day of your enhancement.
- Please wear your normal make - up to your enhancement appointment.
- DO NOT take aspirin or Ibuprofen 2 days prior to and after your enhancement.
- DO NOT consume alcohol or caffeine 24hrs prior to session.
- DO NOT use skincare products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to and after your procedure.
- As with electrolysis the National Blood Service does not accept donations of blood for 1 year after a permanent cosmetic enhancement.
After your treatment
The area treated may show redness and swelling and the color will appear dark and intense — this is quite normal.
Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed. A 4/6 weeks healing time is required before any more work can be undertaken.
In order to let your brows heal well, avoid water on the brow area; make up to the brow area, the gym, sauna, long steamy shower, or pool for 7 days. Starting day 3-4 dab lightly morning and night and apply the thin layer of aquaphor for rest of week.
Strong chemicals or glycolic acid/peels of any kind may cause the pigment to lighten. Always telephone and check with your consultant if in any doubt.
DO NOT pick or pull at the treated area, as it will result in loss of color. You will go through three healing phases: 1 - healing, 2 - peeling , and 3 - fadeing.
If you find any lymphatic fluid or blood weeping within the first 12 hours you can gently clean the area with cool or warm water and gauze, blotting gently dry to remove any moisture.
With clean hands and cotton pad apply a fine layer of aquaphor to the treated area. Repeat this procedure up to 2-3 times a day starting day 3 when the area starts to get dry and feels tight.
After the fine scabbing has went away you will see more of a soft natural shade.
Giving Blood - The Red Cross has suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following treatment.
MRI Scans - This procedure shows up as an artifact on the scan. Some clients may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist.
Injectable - Dermal fillers and Botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. The client should be advised that injectable should be carried out after a Micoshading procedure and not prior.
Laser/Pulsed Light - Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments can cause color change. It is important to advise the therapist that you have had Microshading procedure, as this cannot be rectified with another Microshading procedure.
Color Refreshing - To keep your new brows looking at there best, it is RECOMMENDED that you have a color refresh procedure every 12 - 18 months.
