Post Care Treatment

These cosmetic procedures take around two hours to complete and are mostly painless, so you don't have to worry about a long recovery and missing work. Once the cosmetic treatment is complete, you will notice the results immediately. You should blot your brows frequently over the next hour with a clean cotton make up pad to absorb any lymph fluid. We prefer you gently wash your brows with a mild cleanser  and immediately blot them dry 2-3 times a day for 5 days.

 Apply a rice grain size amount of aftercare cream to your brows after they are dry. Repeat this process fro 5-7 days.

Within the first week of treatment, you should avoid extended stays in the pool, sauna and avoid excessive sweating from exercise.

Refrain from tweezing or plucking your eyebrows and do not apply make up over your brows for 7 days. Whenever you are touching your face, make sure your hands are clean. Dirty hands can lead to an infection and cause a variety of complications.
