Cosmetic Tattoo Aftercare
Follow the below steps diligently & reap the rewards of long lasting brows.
1 - Your Eyebrows need to be treated like an opened healing wound therefore please do not touch them with your hands or fingers.
2 - In the first 48 hours your brows may weep, pat them gently with a damp cotton tip or cotton pad to remove the excess every 15 minutes for the first hour and once an hour for the next 24 to 48 hours following.
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.
4 - Do not use any other products on your Eyebrow area including Soap, Water, Makeup or cleansers on the specific area for 7 days post treatment
5 - Avoid makeup / Sweating, Saunas / and Hot showers for 7 days
6 - 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.
7 - Book in Refresher treatments every 12 months (depending on each individual) to insure a lesser cost and to keep those brows looking perfect.
8 - After Packs are included with some tattooing appointments if you lose your pack or it isn't included it can be purchased for $30 in store or can be shipped.
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.

I could not recommend Chelsea high enough. She is professional, passionate, has an attention for detail and she is also HONEST (which I feel is a big must-have). My brows have never looked so good! x x
