3 - Aim to apply your after care cream 2 to 3 times a day, a thin rice size amount is sufficient for both Eyebrows, this is to insure the area stays moist and minimizes scabbing.

7 - No picking the scabbing of the treated area, this is so important & very obvious to therapists when you have been picking your eyebrow tattoo, this will effect the color and longevity dramatically. if itchy just tap the area do not rub, pick, wipe or pick.
8 - Book in Refresher treatments every 12 months (depending on each individual) to insure a lesser cost and to keep those brows looking perfect.
9 - After Care Cream & Packs are $15 to $30 & can be purchased on the day of your appointment.
General Maintenance of the brows
1- Eyebrow tinting / henna may still be necessary after tattooing to insure your hairs blend perfectly with the colour of the Eyebrow Tattoo.
2 - Be sun smart, sunglasses, sunscreen a hat etc, excessive sunlight or uv exposure will result in the tattoo fading & colour change
3- Cover your Eyebrow Tattoo with Vaseline when swimming in salt or chlorinated water to avoid a bleaching effect
4 - Any chemicals (including vitamins) can effect the tattooed are, keep in mind this includes AHA's, Glycolic peels, facials & in skin care products, they will lighten the colour if used constantly over the tattooed area
5 - After the procedure colours will seem brighter/ Darker and more defined, keep in mind the colour softens in 3 to 10 days which is why a refresher appointment is needed. initially clients are concerned about the being to dark, they are than concerned they are too light. However this is why a touch up appointment is needed.
It is normal for people to loss up to 50% of colour on the first session.
6 - swelling is unusual however if you do find you are a little swollen after the appointment use a cold pack and press gently on the area.
