The initial procedure will take approximately two to three hours where paperwork and legalities are discussed, photo’s are taken and shape and colour is agreed on. 

All aftercare is clearly explained to you and any concerns are spoken of to ensure you are comfortable with your decision.

This varies according to each individual’s pain threshold, menstrual cycle and skin types.

I use anesthetics supplied from the USA and am constantly attempting to source better products for client comfort. Each individual is different however the best equipment is used to ensure minimal discomfort.

The first week, the pigmentation is very dark compared to the final result. Within the first week of healing the intensity of the colour will become about 40% lighter due to your natural cell renewal.

The end result of pigmentation will be visible after a period of approximately 3 to 5 weeks. 

This varies from person to person in terms of medication, age, skin type, cell renewal and lifestyle.

Ideally it takes the initial treatment and a secondary treatment in 6 weeks to get the desired results. However, aftercare is of the utmost importance and crucial through your healing phase to get great results.

A refresher every couple of years may be necessary dependent on you as an individual.
Is there still maintenance required once I have had my eyebrows done?

Of course there is. But no-where near as much as spending all that time drawing them in daily.

Your natural hair around your new beautifully shaped brow will still grow and still need to be maintained in terms of a wax or plucking. As much as we agree on a great colour match, your natural eyebrows will still be there and may need to be tinted every so often to look natural as we get older and they become grey.

Aftercare

• After the procedure, gently blot the area with a clean tissue as often as possible to absorb the excess lymph fluid until it has stopped weeping.
• Wash daily to remove bacteria, build-up of product, oils, and dead skin.
• Gently wash the area each morning and night with water and gentle soap or an unscented cleanser like Cetaphil or baby shampoo. With a very light and gentle touch, use your fingertips gently to cleanse the area.
• Rinse with water and ensure that all the soap is rinsed off.
• Gently pat with a clean tissue to dry. Never rub! BE GENTLE!
DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, AHA or exfoliants.)

• Apply a tiny amount of “aftercare” balm with clean fingers or ear bud.
• Do not over apply, the product must be barely noticeable on the skin.
• Never put the product on a wet or damp tattoo.

• Use a fresh pillow case while you sleep. You may find lymph fluid on the pillow.
DO NOT PICK!!! This may cause scarring or loss of pigment.
• No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
• Avoid hot sweaty exercise for 1 week.
• Avoid direct sunlight or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure.
• Wear a hat when outdoors.
• Avoid long hot showers for the 1st 10 days.
• Avoid swimming and hot tubs for the 1st 10 days.
• Avoid make up and sunscreen on the area.
DO NOT pick, rub or scratch the area.
